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....

A modern, clean and comfortable hotel in a residential area. Staff were very accommodating even though we arrived 4 hours before check-in we were able to access our room immediately.

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. Word of warning - be careful about entering their garage. It was so tight, steep and narrow that it took us about 45 minutes to turn the car around... More

Well This is an average AC hotel, It is decently located not to far away from city and not to far away from airport. Taxi downtown is aproximetly 10 euros. The hotel is quiet. but rooms are small. bed is OK. Staff are friendly and helpful! But overall good value for your money! I would come here again!
