This hotel was nice find. In a great area with an attentive staff. The traffic around the hotel was a little heavy on a Saturday morning, so the taxi took a bit of time to get there, but no fault of the hotels. It's in easy walking distance to public transport. The lobby was laid out nicely and the room... More

The hotel is located in the super safe and upscale Placa Francesc Macia area. Room rates offer great value and the service from all staff was excellent. The room itself was super clean with all new and modern amenities. The hotel exceeded my expectations - Perfect for short stays for the business traveler or couple.

Disappointed. Not up to Marriott standards. Missed the mark on wifi signal strength. Better off in a smaller hotel near Gracia or the Gothic district. Would not recommend for future visits. Even with free breakfast

We spent 3 nights. Nice room on street side. he hotel is very close to the Diagonal. It is in a lovely residential area with many restaurants so the not-quite central location was fine. The lobby is modern and the rooms updated and clean. Price wise this is a good location and offers good value

We stayed for 4 nights, and liked the location so much, came back a week later before heading back home. The rooms all face Calvet ( Road) which can be a little noisy) and free Wifi is available in the lobby area. Rooms were... More

The welcome in the hotel was warm and welcome. The rooms are convenient, well designed and clean. All normal facilities are available. The distance to the city center is not too long. Only one thing I don't like. A 12 euro charge per day for wifi. In a hotel that wants to attract business guests wifi should be a given,... More

I stayed here four days and the hotel is very nice with great staff. The hotel is located close the Diagonal street 15 min walking to Plaza Catalunya. Breakfast is nice although after 4 days I would appreciate a bit of change. The reception staff was very proffessional and always ready to help. Thank you

We stayed at the AC Iria Barcelona for 4 nights in October. Due to many negative reviews, we were expecting to have to check out the 2nd day and look for a more suitable place but we're Marriott rewards members and wanted to give it a chance. We're glad we did. I'm not sure why the nay-sayers had such a... More

A tidy hotel in a quiet neighborhood admittedly not "in the center" of things but within a long walk of major attractions, easy access to metro and bus lines, the neighborhood has plenty of shops and restaurants that are not touristy, amenities including wifi are satisfactory, staff is helpful and pleasant

This is really a bare bones hotel, that does not have much of anything to offer, except a bed, toilet and shower. The neighborhood is nice and quiet, but not well located with respect to activity, eating options nor metro stops. Barcelona is truly an exceptional city. This is just an average hotel.
