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.

  • The location was great, decor was amazing and very friendly and knowledgable staff were able to make good suggestions about to eat. Room service was quick and rooftop terrace was fantastic. Breakfast was also very delicious, the spa and rooftop pool were enjoyable too.

    Tv and bathroom set up to impress an 11 year old lad, also the bar is expensive.

  • Excellent location on Las Ramblas and cheaper than a cab. Modern comfortable hip decor, historic building and from the beautiful lobby to the indoor pool. Car park great, drapes completely block all light and the staff is very professional and friendly. The rooms are clean and spa are fabulous.

    Drinks in hotel were expensive, at this premium price, for two people you got only one tiny bottle of water a day.

  • Spa areas are wonderful, the hotel is in a hot country; this should be automatic for an hotel of this standard and the staff are very polite and helpful. The beds/pillows are amazing and the rooftop bar and pool is fantastic and the inside pool in the basment too. Nice choice of hams, fruits, cereals, desserts, nice diet menu.

    Well designed and a real oasis in the busy city centre, expensive for you get, we wouldnt stay again, stupid high price. No conciërge bad info at reception and rooms too small. Computer connection was very poor.
