1898 HOTEL: FINALLY A GOOD CHOICE FOR HOTELS IN LA RAMBLA
The hotel 1898 one of our favorite hotels if you like staying in the heart of the hurrican. La Rambla, is an always busy and fascinating street. There are lots of things going on, and its’ a great starting point to explore most of the city sites. And if you are staying in one of the best hotels in it, is there anything else you can ask?
This is what we love about the 1898 hotel:
East of Les Rambles you’ll find the Gothic Quarter with its medieval buildings and some roman ruins.
Plus the area is also really close to the Boqueria food market: foodies paradise. The downside is that it’s a busy, noisy and touristic area, but don’t worry! All rooms are nicely isolated to make your night rest comfortable.
Built in 1891 to be the headquarters of the Philippines Tobacco Company, Spain’s main tobacco importer, the hotel decoration has been inspired in the history of the place and to become the only colonial style hotel in the city.
After a walk around Barcelona a whole day, who doesn’t deserve a good drink? Situated in the lobby of the hotel, the H1898 bar is the perfect place to meet with your friends and travel mates. Not only for its wide range of drinks and their tapas assortment, but also for its friendly baristas always making sure you are comfortable and spend a nice time. Relax and enjoy a drink!
Who would guess that in one of the busiest areas in the city you could find such a relaxing place to forget stress and unplug? The 1898 Hotel features a magnificent Spa including a covered heated pool and a thermal circuit. Everything with panoramic views in a luxurious atmosphere. BTW, here are some other great hotel spas.
