The hotel is very well located attached to la Illa shopping centre and within minutes by bus to the centre of the city. The rooms are spacious and well appointed with AC distinctive touches for travellers and they offer a great value for money breakfast with very good quality. Good for families with kids as the bus and tram are...

The hotel is located very close to city center and is part of a big mall. There are plenty of restaurants and bars very close to the hotel. There are many good shops close by by shopping. It's a modern hotel with very big room size. Very few staff in the hotel but the staff is very friendly.

I like this hotel and have been visiting it several times. The rooms are spacious and modern. But be sure you book a room at the back of the hotel. The front is facing a busy road and these rooms are not well insulated. The back is much quieter, unless Barcelona is playing then some of the supporters might visit...

I used to visit this hotel before AC took it and now its a different story! Great ambient and service, very NY Shoho style. My room was at the 5th floor and was big and confortable. Breakfast assortment is good and quality fine, in a very modern environment. Having L'Illa shopping mall nearby is great as you can buy ot...

Arrived at 8am and they have room available for me to check in. This is great because you can freshen up before going out. Check in and out were easy with friendly staffs. The room is also big compare to European standard and cleaned as well. However, they did not refill the water bottle like other hotels in Barcelona did....

With a friend we went to a concert in Barcelona and we stayed at AC hotel. I arrived very early (10.30) and wanted to leave my luggage and walked until check in time, fortunately for me they had one room available and gave it to me immediately. Was able to take a small shower and relax a little. The hotel...

We spent 4 nights here and found it quite comfortable. I ended up with the king suite that had a conference table in the outer room, which was rather unusual but spacious. Very modern and quiet space, and a good location from which to explore the city. We didn't eat in the restaurant at all and went for crepes at...

We arrived at 6:30 in the morning from a 7 day cruise. The desk staff were ready for us and were able to get us into a room immediately. They also spoke English which helped with the process. Tiny elevator but opened up to a very large hallway on the 3rd floor. We entered the room into a sitting area...

If my plans were for a shopping trip, this would be a great choice! In fact, because of the helpful, friendly, courteous, and kind staff, I would think they are all Eagle Scouts! This street is the longest in Barcelona, stretching from the mountains to the sea. It is filled with shops and sights to behold. Highly recommended.

The receptionists were great given that we were sent to ac really late at night as the Hilton had overbooked itself. And if you need to stay in this area then this is definitely the better of the 2! The bar shuts early for a hotel ( 11.30pm!) and the bar staff were hopeless in speed and knowledge of basic...
