It's clean, quiet and the staff are very helpful and pleasant. Hotel is in a residential area with easy access to restaurants, a very good shopping mall, and five mins from the train. Spent four nights here with the family - fully endorse it for value!

This hotel has been lovely. It is quite modern and very clean. The location is outside of the clatter of town. Our room has a whole wall of window that gives a panoramic view of Barcelona. It is an outstanding view at the mountains and castles. In 10 minutes by bus, we were strolling the Ramblais. The neighborhood is family... More

Lovely hotel, good small rooms, well managed. However it is outside the city centre and not compatible with a metro. Not many restaurants around, isolated place although looked to be safe. 5 mins from a bus station where I get buses very regularly (5-10mins) to the plaza Espanya and (20mins) frequency to city centre which is a 30-45 minute ride....

I understand that AC (Marriott) policy is that breakfast is not included for Platinums. So Platinums essentially receive nothing. Yes, you can elect for 250 bonus points, worth, what 25 cents?

I've stayed at this hotel before. It's clean, does a good breakfast and the service is friendly. It's not the best for access to the centre. But if you're happy to try public transport its easy to get into the centre. It's also in walking distance of Montjuic.There's a shopping centre across the road that has several, average bars and...

AC Som's location is not conducive to travelers that want to experience Barcelona's great activities. It is clean and the price is low, but the lower cost for the room was offset by the $30+ round-trip taxi fares to get to the city center. We were spoiled by staying in the city center area for 3 nights prior to our... More

The hotel was neat and clean and modern. The staff was friendly and helpful. There're is a very convenient mall across the street and some nice, casual places to eat nearby.
