Las Ramblas is Barcelonaâ€™s main artery, but Hotel 1898 is a temple of luxury and calm in the midst of its madness. Smart, colonial-era decor (think hardwood floors and leather chairs) reference the hotelâ€™s name â€“ the year in which the last of Spainâ€™s colonies gained independence.
1898â€™s first floor restaurant serves up eclectic modern Mediterranean dishes to views of Las Ramblas. Live jazz in the main hall provides a relaxed setting for cafe snacks, while the hotelâ€™s roof deck is perfect for an evening drink in front of panoramic city views.
A rooftop pool is a glamorous place to chill out, while those in search of hardcore relaxation can head to the spa. Indulge in Eastern-inspired face and body treatments, saunas, steam baths and a dip in the heated indoor pool.
169 rooms and suites mix minimalist furniture with ostentatious modern styling â€“ expect hardwood floors and bold, monochromatic stripes on everything from bedding to curtains to sofas. Flat screen TVs and free Wi-Fi are techy treats, while marble counter tops and Etro toiletries give bathrooms a luxe finish. Pick a Superior room for extra space and a buzzy street view.
