Location is amazing and almost everyone at the reception is very helpful. We upgraded to a Junior suit at €50 per night and agreed a 2pm checkout. The room was very clean with a decent view and we got snacks and water every day. The gym was decent, the pool was ice cold and the jacuzzi was cold too. Sauna... More

We were a big group..we arrived at 11AM and our room was only made available at 4PM- for no reason at all. At the end they also overcharged us and we had to discuss with them back to the real price. +They will charge you to WiFi Just, avoid this place. Thanks, Victor

The hotel AC BARCELONA FORUM is within 3 minutes walk to the beach. The subway,across the street, brings you to the city center in 10 minutes. Full of restaurants and shops in the shoping mall just in front of the hotel. Very nice room and very friendly staff allways willing to help. The breakfast is extraordinary and full of choice....
