I don't know the AC brand of hotels but I expect feather pillows in a Marriott. This might sound petty but it makes the difference between a good night sleep and a poor one for me and why I stay at Marriotts a lot. That is why this hotel gets a poor rating from me. For the rest it was... More

Dear Belgo, Thank you for honest feedback while I'm so glad that you enjoyed your stay in our Hotel. Nevertheless, we were deeply sorry to read that pillows didn't meet your expectations. Rooms are dressed initially with foam pillows due to avoid allergies so common inside Today’s Society. However we propose on our Room directory the option of enjoy feather... More

I stay at Marriott properties everywhere. The AC Irla is NOT up to the standards of other Marriott properties. Even other AC properties. First, the rooms are tiny. Unacceptably small for the room rates charged. Second, our mini bar fridge was broken and everything was warm inside when we arrived. Third, there are not enough electrical outlets on the walls...

Booked in for a weekend in the middle of July mostly because of the rate it offered and the reviews of the accommodations. Rooms were small, but very well turned out, with excellent AC. Staff were friendly and helpful. Worth noting on the down side that they have frosted glass walls for the bathroom that while do maintain modesty, do... More

We stayed for 2nights at this hotel prior to leaving from Barcelona on a cruise. The rooms are so small that my husband and I did not have a place for both of our suitcases. A section of the room was carved out for the bathroom. However, it is located in a nice neighborhood.

I use AC hotels quite often and they are normally pretty basic, if a bit eccentric in design. My biggest complaint is the sound proofing, which is a general problem in Spain anyway but all the more disturbing in a hotel. This one is no exception, you can hear the people next door and the traffic from street and aisles.... More

We stayed here for one night before leaving for a cruise from Barcelona. Nice looking property with small rooms in a desirable neighborhood, however that is where the positives ended. Extremely noisy street traffic that made it so that we couldn't sleep. Since we are frequent Marriott customers we chose this hotel for the normal perks. No executive lounge, which... More

This really was a nice surprise, 3 days in the city, reception staff happy to supply maps and recommendation, room not bad for a city hotel, a bit noisy but to expect traffic to stop because I was there was a bit much to expect. Ideal for seeing Barcelona without all them tourists getting in the wat
