Arrived at the airport after midnight anf took the train into town. The hotel was right next to the station and they had late check-in. Found the room to be spacious and stylish. Everything I needed was provided. Breakfast buffet was great with a decent cup of esspresso.

When you book online, it can be a hit or miss. This was definitely a "hit"! We arrived to Barcelona late in the evening and took a train close to our hotel. The hotel is within walking distance from the train and when we arrived, the night concierge was cordial and got us situated very quickly. The rooms were modern... More

I returned to this hotel for a second trip to Barcelona, and I was again impressed by the hotel's convenience near the train station and its affordable rooms. While on my first trip the hotel was smoky, this time I did not detect cigarettes. I slept well and ate well, not only at the well-stocked hotel breakfast but also at... More

Having stayed now at a few AC hotels in Europe, I see what Marriott is trying to do in acquiring this brand. Many people complain that AC hotels are not up to Marriott standards. This is simply not true. It depends on which AC hotel you stay. There is a ton of variability between each AC property. There is less... More

This is a fairly standard/basic hotel located very close to Barcelona santa station. The hotel is actually closer to the station than it appeared on the various maps we used which for us was brilliant as we had an early morning train. Facilities are all standard (no tea and coffee making in the room but this is fairly standard in... More

Situated right near the train station, it provided an ideal environment. We could catch the hop on/off bus right across the street and get to all areas of the city very easily. It was not in the midst of the tourist or expensive areas of town so we found it very reasonably priced. We stayed there 3 different times over... More

I am staying at this hotel as part of a business trip in Barcelona, from May 30th to Jun 4th. The hotel is nice, clean and quiet, the wifi is fast and the breakfast is good without being extraordinary. Nice and helpful staff and good location (for me at least) within walking distance from the Congress palace.

As others have noted, the hotel is no more than 2 minutes from the Sants station. Take the exit by McDonald's, look past the taxis, and there is the hotel. After 24 hours air travel from California, it was a welcome sight. Great shower, very clean room, excellent staff at the desk. Air conditioning worked fine. Also able to open... More

My husband and I stayed here 1 night following a cruise using Marriott points and were very happy. The hotel is nicely appointed in a modern minimalistic style. Our room was comfortable and spacious. The bathroom had an open concept with a small toilet room and a shower stall so may be lacking in privacy for some but for us... More

Used this twice at each end of a train journey to Valencia. Ideally placed literally 2 minutes walk from Sants station using MacD exit. Very modern furnishings and fittings, very clean and toiletries provided. Excellent breakfast buffet with hot and cold offerings. Plenty of local places to eat in the evening within 5 minutes walk. Helpful and pleasant staff. Would... More
