Located on the emblematic Rambla of Barcelona, the H1898 manages to harmonize its forceful personality with the modernity typical of the 21st century. In its spa, in the colonial-style lounges, the library or the lobby, one breathes the history and art transmitted by every detail in the hotel, in marked colonial style.
The establishment has 169 guestrooms of 6 different types: classical, superior, privilege, de luxe, junior suite and 3 colonial suites with private terrace and swimming pool. Also well worth highlighting is La Isabela, a terrace with exceptional, total- surround vistas of the Barcelona skyline and with a heated pool available to clients throughout the year www.hotel1898.com

More and more travellers think that researching and planning a European city break is half the fun and they're not interested in pre-arranged trips or escorted tours. Self-guided tours offer a lot of advantages but require some guidance and good resources.
With the recent wild fires, disrupting flights and increasing air pollution, environmental quality is a growing factor in attracting tourists.
