[Spain][Barcelona] Brief review of Hotel 1898.

I stayed in Spain from December 16th to 21st, stayed at Condes de Barcelona from the 16th to 19th and moved here.

My friend recommended this place and said it was really good, so I actually had high expectations.
To conclude, there was nothing particularly good about the hotel itself, except for accessibility.

Looking at the reviews on Yurangdo, I didn’t get the feeling that it was “too” good, perhaps because it was a few years old. – Close to many tourist attractions such as Plaza Catalunya, El corte ingres department store, Barcelona Cathedral, Boqueria Market, and the Gothic Quarter.
(If you walk to Gracia, you will get there quickly.)

– Close to subway station and airport bus stop (Plaza Catalunya).
(Because the airport bus departs from Plaza Catalunya, there may not be a place to leave your luggage if you take it at another stop along the way.
There are times when you have to send a bus.
Of course, they go frequently during the day, every 5 minutes, so you don’t have to wait much.)

– There is always a guard present at the hotel lobby or entrance.

– Carrefour is very close (the scale is large. If you go in the morning, there are a lot of products. If you go in the afternoon, they are all sold out)

– There are 4 elevators, so waiting time for the elevator is short.

– Since it was a honeymoon, we were provided with a bottle of champagne in an ice bucket. –
Room cleaning was completed very late
After going out, I came to the accommodation around 2-3pm and it had not been cleaned at all.
I had no choice but to go to the lobby, hang around, go around the Gothic Quarter, and return after 4 o’clock.

So I came back and was resting when someone knocked on the door. I opened the door and went out, and they said something in Spanish that looked like they were cleaning staff.
Then, after about 20 to 30 minutes, there was another knock.
Since she just left earlier, I thought it wouldn’t be a big deal for her.
When he didn’t respond, he opened the door with the master key and came in.
If there was anything I didn’t get when cleaning the room, I should have taken care of it, but there wasn’t anything like that.
He said something in Spanish again and just went away.????????????
If I had come to bring you towels or amenities, I would have had something in my hand, but there wasn’t anything like that.
It was my fault for not responding to the knock, but I felt a little uncomfortable.

– As for the accommodations I have experienced in Barcelona, ​​there are two: Condes de Barcelona and this one, and both of them are not very soundproof.
The other side?
The building next door also seemed to be a hotel, but it was very noisy for about an hour, either because the door was open or because someone was talking in the alley. – A deposit of 100 EURO is payable upon check-in.
When checking out, they deducted the city tax, but the cancellation fee was 73 EURO or something.
Personally, I think it would be right to cancel the deposit and pay the city tax separately.
I couldn’t ask if I could cancel and pay the city tax separately.
There may be exchange rate fluctuations in the meantime.
This didn’t sit well with me.

– The taxis waiting in front of the hotel are waiting to go to the airport or long distances, so they don’t go short distances.

– I didn’t know why everyone was telling me to buy apple mango in Spain.
If you go to Carrefour, you can buy two sturdy apple mangoes for about 3.5 EURO.

When I first bought it, the apple mangoes were not ripe red like you see in Korea, but rather greenish.
The second time I bought it, I bought a ripe apple mango with an overall red color.

For me and my husband, the green apple mango was more delicious than the red ripe apple mango.

The green apple mango flesh is more chewy and sweet and sour.
It’s not unripe!
The red ripe apple mangoes that are eaten in Korea have a strong sweet taste when ripened well.

*If you call the hotel reception and ask for knives and plates, they will provide them through room service.
There is no additional charge and tips are free.
(They didn’t bring it to me even after an hour after I first talked about it, so I called again and they said they were sorry and brought it to me right away;;;) Simply do it!
Other than accessibility, the hotel itself had no charm.
