H1898 of Barcelona recently ranked among the top 100 hotels in the world

H1898 Hotel, Barcelona
H1898 of Barcelona, managed by NN Hotels, has been praised by the US-based Fodor’s, a well-respected travel and hospitality publication which recently released its picks for the 2014 edition of its annual ‘Fodor’s Hotel Awards’. H1898’s “impeccable service,” “excellent location,” and “spectacular” décor and design” were just some of the aspects to make H1898 worthy of this prestigious recognition.

Fodor’s 500 contributors, located throughout the world, started by nominating the best hotels in their respective regions. After they made their initial selection, Fodor’s editors-in-chief narrowed down the list to arrive at the Top 100. The United States was ultimately home to the greatest number of establishments within this carefully culled list, boasting a total of 20. Among the 4 Spanish hotels included, H1898 was the only one located in the city of Barcelona.

The 100 featured hotels are classified into 9 categories that reflect each hotel’s exclusive attributes, and for the first time this year, included a subset dedicated exclusively to readers’ comments. H1898 was listed under the “Boutique Chic” category, denoting a concept that defines it perfectly, considering its prime location in the heart of Barcelona, its elegant and cozy design, and its exceptional personalized service.

It’s no surprise, considering that the hotel, housed within the old headquarters of the Philippines Tobacco Company, manages to perfectly blend its historic charm with 21st century style. Its spa, its colonial salons, its library, and its lobby all exude the history and art that live and breathe in every corner of the hotel.

The establishment features 169 rooms in 6 unique styles: classic, superior, privilege, deluxe, junior suite, and 3 colonial suites with private pool and terrace. The hotel is also known for its on-site restaurant La Isabela, featuring a terrace with exceptional panoramic views of the Catalan capital skyline and a heated pool open to guests year-round.
