The room is average nothing special about it. Free WiFi in the common area (lobby, cafe, gym) but NOT in the room. You will get some of the Wifi connection in your phone but very slow. I didn't get why there isn't a free Wifi in the room. Ain't it suppose to be standard already? I've requested an iron but... More

I am sorry you did not enjoy your stay with us. We check our irons weekly to make sure that they are in good working order, but I apologise for its malfunction. I am not sure whether your informed us of this fact during your stay, as this would have given us the opportunity to remove that iron from circulation... More

Wonderful location close to beach and mall. Easy walk to neighborhood RESTURANTS too. A perfect stay except for last night there when a heavy rain caused leaks in many rooms. An accommodation for the problems was not offered, disappointing. Also for cpap users beware that all circuits in the room are on one switch so lights stay on to use... More

The hotel was located a little far out of the action but the public transport in Barcelona is both modern and readily available. On entering the reception area, on our first evening after a delayed flight and struggle from queuing for tickets for the airport bus and taxis I found the receptionist to be rather rude initially however, all other...

I had mixed feelings about my stay at this hotel. Here is the breakdown: Positives - friendly staff who want to help; decent location; good looking facility; nice pool, jacuzzis and health amenities; ability to use facilities before check in/ after checkout, 2 free drink vouchers, easy access to bike rentals through a private service (however after leaving the property...

I am very sorry your stay with us was not entirely satisfactory. I would however like to comment on a couple of the points you make. We do usually have WIFI in all hotel rooms. On occasion we have experienced difficulties with connections in the rooms (sometime due to our connection and sometimes due to the settings on guest's devices),... More

The AC Hotel Barcelona Forum was a disappointment: it is the kind of hotel that was designed and built adjacent to a convention center such as the Barcelona Forum. Following the collapse of the Forum, the hotel has tried to transform into a tourist destination but keeps the nuances of a business hotel. For instance, the hotel capacity is simply... More

I am very sorry you did not enjoy your stay with us. As you correctly point out, our property was built as part of the "forum district". We in fact still work in close collaboration with other hotels in the area and the adjacent CCIB convention center hosting important worlwide congresses and conventions all year round. The hotel was built... More

As two 20 something females we loved this hotel! The hotel is stunning and the pool is beautiful. It is opposite a shopping centre with a wide range of restaurants which made eating out easy! We didn't eat breakfast at the hotel but went to the enormous supermarket over the road. The open top tour bus stops directly outside the... More

I was disappointed to have to wait almost 2 hours for my room service order. Difficult to get through on the phone. When I queried where it was I was hung up on as the staff did not speak English. They then advised that the order had already been delivered which was not the case. Extremely poor. I would not... More

We enjoyed staying at the A.C. Diplomat prior to our cruise. The location was perfect for touring thw beautiful city of Barcelona. The rooms were tastefully decorated and offered enough room for our family. Lobby area offered plenty of space to get comfortable and the service was also good. Best part of the hotel was the pool area and the... More

Recently we took a cruise leaving from Barcelona and arrived a day early to insure against flight troubles. We stayed at the AC because we had some points to use and it was relatively close to the airport and downtown tourist areas. Metro is cheap and easy, cabs ran about 30 Euro and took 25 minutes to airport. The hotel... More

Have stayed here twice. Great value for the price. Rooms are clean, spacious and well-supplied. Breakfast needs a bit of work. Staff are nice but overwhelmed- it shouldn't take 30 mins to get poached eggs. Also would love to see a coffee kiosk in the lobby or on the first floor (the Day and Night Restaurant did not appear to... More
