my husband and I recently enjoyed a fantastic weekend break at hotel 1898. It was our first break away from our two young children and we had a lovely romantic time at this hotel. great location for exploring barcelona. we had a package booked through the hotel website which included continental breakfast, a spa treatment and a superior room. the room was fantastic although as it faced on ramblas was a bit noisy at night. the spa let us upgrade our foot treatment to a massage (we paid the extra). the breakfast was the only thing I found fault with as on the first day the waiter sent us into the main restairant (even though we gave our room number) and although we only ate continental breakfast they tried to charge us 50 euros. we sorted it out and the rest of the stay was superb. we loved the roof top terrace and bar. i have already recommended this hotel to friends and family and would definitely stay again.
