Lonely Planet review
The former Compañía de Tabacos Filipinas (Philippines Tobacco Company) has been resurrected as a luxury hotel, replete with idylic rooftop bar La Isabala. Some rooms are smallish but deluxe rooms and suites have their own terraces. All combine modern comfort and elegance, with hardwood floors and tasteful furniture. Some of the suites have access to a private indoor pool, while all guests can use the outdoor one.
Our independent authors have visited Hotel 1898 and selected this as one of our recommended hotels in Barcelona.
