We stayed here by coincidence. We had a booking at another hotel and last minute they canceled us, so we where looking at the same day for a nice hotel to stay as I was traveling with my husband and daughter. We have chosen this hotel, it's bit outside the touristic area, but still has lots of shops and restaurants... More

As a Marriott gold member I was pretty unpleased with this property. Bad air, noisy and bad beds and pillows. For a ngt only maybe but don't stay more than one. I've never called Marriott about a. Property but I'm going to about this one. Locations is good for shopping.

Location is a bit remote, room a bit small, but everything was very clean and new. If it didn't carry the Marriott brand, I'd probably give it four stars, five if the price were 20% lower or the hotel a bit more central. This was a perfectly nice hotel, I just expect a bit better from a Marriott.

We stayed at the AC Irla using reward points for four nights. We liked that it was not in the tourist part of town and we could sample little restaurants nearby where locals eat. Many had only menus in Catalan but that was part of the fun. The first night we were put in a room on the third floor... More

Visited the hotel on my anual business trip to Barcelona. The hotel is usual style and quality of the AC hotels. Extremely friendly and helpfull staff at the reception. Many nice restaurants and pubs in walking distance can sustitute the missing restaurant at the hotel. It is nice walk to the city center if you have time for it otherwise... More

Pleasantly surprised by this wonderfully-designed room for a relatively-bargain price in Barcelona. Only spent one night, but would have been happy staying longer. Excellent bad, great bathroom. quiet. We used it as a place to sleep and change - too much to do outside - and it was perfect. Front desk staff was friendly and helpful. A bit north of... More

Because of my need to use CPAP machine, I always book a 2 beds room. In fact I rated the type of bed as my highest priority in my Marriot profile under Reservation Preference. I booked a "Queen/Double bed room" through the Marriot official site as a silver elite member. I was quite disappointed to find out at the AC... More

Overall, a nice hotel for the price. The staff was very helpful and courteous. Rooms were well equipped and clean. Only negative is location, it is a little bit out of the way for tourists, but it's also pretty quiet. Getting a taxi is pretty easy and the subway is not too far.

Nice hotel in a quiet location. Comfortable rooms, helpful staff. An overall pleasant stay. I booked through booking.com who I won't be using again but all the problems caused by them were resolved by the great hotel staff. Thank you

We stayed at this hotel for 4 days. It was nice and its location isn't really ideal, far from all the "action" (la Rambla, Barceloneta, sightseeing places such as Sagrada Familia....). We were able to get to these places using public transportation but the bus and metro stations are a bit far. Other than that the hotel in itself was... More
