We have just come back from a 3-day stay at the 1898 Hotel in Barcelona. We drove over from France and had no difficulty in find the hotel. We arrived with a flat tire and the staff were extremely helpful in getting it fixed. The staff were ever so friendly and spoke excellent English. The hotel is well located. In the same building there is a Starbucks and there are lots of small restuarants (not too pricely and with a good selection) to be found in and around the street Carrer de les Sitges which is just a block further up (but be warned they don’t start eating dinner before 20:30 in Barcelona).
Our room was small – but pleasant. It was kept very clean and tidy, twice a day by housekeeping staff. The beds were comfortabel and you get to choose between a large choice of pillows.
The hotel has an historical feel but all the facilities are modern. We will not hesitate on choosing this hotel on our next trip to Barcelona.
