We did not stay at ABaC but ate at their signature restaraunt.

Without a doubt; some of the best food Europe has to offer. Exception in every sense of the word; the tastes are inspired, the delicacy of each dish does not go unnoticed and even with the hefty price tag I would go back again if I ever return to Barcelona.

This is a 'once in a lifetime' dinner. Make sure you do it once in your lifetime.

This luxurious boutique hotel is easy to overlook because it is located in a quiet residential neighborhood rather than in the center of the city, which turns out to be a big plus. The neighborhood is utterly charming and only a quick taxi or metro ride (taxi stand and metro station both across the street) to all the main attractions. Our king room was very spacious and included a separate seating area easily closed off with pocket doors, double closets and a plush bathroom, although I agree with a previous reviewer, it's way too dimly lit. Everyone on the staff, was attentive, very helpful and extremely professional. Special thanks to hotel manager, Marien, and Roberto.You met our every need, and promptly at that. We recommend this excellent hotel to anyone visiting Barcelona, whether for a 1st trip or return visit.

The idea of an ipad at the room was very good. The arrival was not excelent. Our luggage was not picked up at the entrance and the service level was not as good as other same level hotels.
The restaurant was excellent and deserves the 2 stars.

The Lady at breakfast was a little strange. Trying to be friendly but a little professionalism more should improve overall quality.

The room was very confortable and silent. A enormous giratory Bang & Olufsen tv is opulent but not very user friendly. The remote control is confusing as well as the tv's software.

The toilet zone at the bathroom has extremely low light.

The material used in the bathroom construction or lighting when cooling makes some sound (a little disturbing cliks)

As you can see my comments are small things which are easily solved. Anyway the hotel was excellent.

We were in the Restaurant in a party of 50 for a pre wedding dinner.
From the moment we arrived the understated service confidence and professionalism of all involved was immediately apparent. We loved the stylish garden and enjoyed a per dinner drink.
The restaurant itself is a joy with well spaced tables allowing plenty of space for audible conversation.
The meal was an absolute delight with culinary surprises, tastes that challenged and lifted the pallet. Course upon course served quietly, efficiently and professionally.
I have no idea of cost. Style confidence and stunning food and service. Highly recommended, the only other restaurant where i have dined that could hold a candle to it is Le Petit Nice in Marseilles. Both well worth visiting.

Room Tip: We did not sleep there

We chose this hotel because of the reputation of it's restaurant. We were not disappointed. The 14 course tasting dinner was phenomenal. The wait staff were so attentive. Ratio of staff to guests is nearly 1:1. Front desk staff knew who we were by name and were very helpful at all times. There was a fire in the hotel 48 hrs before our arrival. The smell of smoke was noticeable in our room, but the hotel provided us with a filter which worked exceptionally well.
Bathroom was a bit of a disappointment. Shower was small with unusual drain which did leak onto the bathroom floor, however the rooms are well appointed and soundproof.

Excellent hotel, location, staff, spa, and service! Oh, and Jordi Cruz runs the restaurant! We will return to Barcelona and when we do, we will return to the ABaC. Our meal at the restaurant was a memory, indeed. Go there and do that!

Room Tip: We had a terrace and would ask for the same room again.
