Editorial review:

This luxury hotel Hotel 1898 is in the building that used to be the Philippines Tobacco Company, which business ran into hard times when Spain lost control of the Philippines in 1898. The deluxe rooms and suites all have terraces and are quite elegant. There are also smaller rooms available and an outdoor pool that is open to all guests. The hotel’s high style is underscored by the parquet floors and lovely furniture. Some of the most expensive suites, which can run as 1600 Euro/per night, include access to a private indoor pool.

    Brilliant and quirky, we are a couple in our twenties and loved the place!

    The ONLY thing that was a problem was we seemed to be right next to a bell tower which seemed to chime all the time! It would chime the number of hours for the time and then start again! We bought ear plugs for the second night! Absolutely no fault of the hotel though. The hotel was perfect apart from this!

    A review in the New York Times was favorable, so we selected h1898. We tried "everything" at least once: First floor dining (gourmet, great suggestions from server, not really a "view" though we were seated at the window--wife is 5'3" tall!) was lovely, one night. In-room dining (price comparable to La Rambla restaurants, huge salad--thanks--wines better than expected) was appreciated, one night. Bar had a good selection of beers, one afternoon. Library with computers were used by us to check email, one afternoon. Indoor swimming pool was fun--and the mural had a view of local mountains that we could see on the roof--nice. Pool-water's temperature was perfect. Fitness center was basic--we both used it. Map to Starbucks was appreciated.

    We had no memorable dislikes. Here are a couple of suggestions! Pool opened at 8:00 A.M. Boom! People were there for the jets at exactly 8:00. Can it open at 6:00 A.M. for those who want to do laps? Fitness opened at 8:00. Earlier for us early-risers? More weights are needed. A remote to tv is needed (we turned off the noise and no one turned it back on during our couple-of-day stay!). More bottles of water are needed (the 4 bottles are gone by 8:15 each morning). Bar could have some sherries, couldn't it?We were upgraded, at no added cost, to a corner room. We loved the space. Any of our little suggestions, above, were not memorable in part because of the trade-off of a larger-than- expected room (thanks).

    The room was expensive but large and comfortable. To the extent that we had dealings with hotel staff, they were polite and helpful. The gym and swimming pool were good, although the swimming pool is rather small. The rooftop bar was pleasant although I found the drinks a bit pricey, but not excessively so given the hotel.

    The garage can only be accessed via a pedestrian area and a hotel employee has to be used as a guide. This is inconvenient for those who wish to use their car during their stay.

    Excellent location, roof terrace and pool very nice, lovely spa, clean rooms although we were facing the rear so didn't have a view. All in all an excellent hotel in the heart of la ramblas ideal for shopping, weekend breaks to relax or party.

    The main reason for booking was location which was just perfect: a few steps from Gothic quarter and Catalunya square where all tourist routes start from. 15 minutes walking by La Rambla to port area. We have booked 2 superior rooms (#333,339) from Jan,02,2012 till Jan 08,02,2012 at cost of EUR 1200 for 6 nihts. Rooms were very spacious and bright. Windows of both rooms were looking to Le Meridien hotel.Nights were very calm and quiet. Restrooms were very clean and tidy. "ETRO" shower and bath amenities were a good suprise as well. Special attention to breakfast. Nice choice of hams, fruits, cereals, desserts, nice diet menu. And brut sparkling wine at last.That breakfast costs it's money (EUR 23 per person). Fine servce is remarkable too.

    We couldn't find a shoehorn in rooms. We even haven't asked anybody for it as it is very insignificant.
