    The 1898 hotel houses 169 rooms built inside a beautiful historical building of neo-classic style with 5 levels, it was built in 1880 and it is serviced by three elevators. It belongs to the hotelier group Nunez Navarro, that has 9 hotels in Barcelona including the beautiful Soho, the last one added to the group, open in the summer of 2006. Since its launching in 2005, the hotel is open all year round and it could accomodate a maximum of 340 clients. You enter inside the hotel by a swing door, innovative to the era of construction of the building in 19th century. The hall, by its stained glass, the sol and the elegant ceiling, is spectacular and original. The historical atmosphere takes over the entire building that enjoys an undeniable air. While the building sends out a classic style from the outside, inside you could feel the colonial atmosphere of the decoration. Linked to the trade with the colonies, it sheltered the headquarters of the cigarettes company of Philippines, whose name is recorded on the facade. Models and transatlantic boats, historical chimneys, black and white movies and mute movies with Charlie Chaplin transmitted in a continuous loop on a huge screen, black and white pictures taken in Philippines in 2005 by the Swedish photographer Maria Espeus, you don't know where to look first! In the "chill out'' atmosphere, the deck located on the 7th floor is fitted with a small rectangular pool of 230 feet˛ (10 feet x 23 feet) size, two showers and restrooms. The scenic view to Barcelona is simply mind-blowing! The hotel has also a stylish snack bar that offers an easy-going atmosphere on a musical background, between 10:00 AM and 9:00 PM. Beach umbrellas, beach chairs and towels are also supplied. The spa of the 1898 is built on brick vaulting of the original warehouse where the tobacco was stored.
