Stayed here for two nights in January 2009 during a business trip to Barcelona. I had a large room on the 15th floor overlooking the harbour. Both the lounge / bedroom and bathroom were very spacious and well-appointed - there was even a separate dressing room area off the bathroom. It was too cold to try the pool but the... More

Stayed here for two nights after our Mediterranean Disney cruise. The hop-on hop-off bus stop is just across the street, and there are taxis just in front of the hotel. The modern furnishings look very sleek. We arrived at 9am and our room was ready. The mall across the street is readily accessible. Beautiful view from the top deck that... More

We spent 4 nights at AC Barcelona with my wife. While the layout of the building and the rooms were a carbon copy of the many 4-star hotels we stayed at previously, the quality was also up to par. The differences mainly concerned a great 32" LCD TV set with a nice selection of programs, a completely free minibar and... More

The hotel is located approximately 20-25 minutes from Barcelona airport (by taxi), in the business district of Barcelona. It is 10 minutes walk from a clean, sandy beach. It is also located opposite a large shopping centre, which proved to be very useful for food shopping, since the quality of the food served in the hotel restaurant was disappointing (the... More

Booked a room three weeks in advance without using an advanced booking discount - hoped our room preferences would be fulfilled - non-smoking, sea-view, double bed. Nevertheless, when we were checking in, they offered us either a room on a smoking floor with a sea view or a non-smoking room with a city view. After some wrangling, they found a... More

This hotel is great on all points, it's big, the rooms are nice, the pool on the rooftop is great, it has a magnificient view on Barcelona. There is a health centre with jacuzzis, a sauna, a hammam and a gym, all are free of access for all hotel guests. Everything is really very pleasant and free. The location is... More

The rooms at AC are nice, tidy and modern. Location is convenient for the Diagonal Mar shopping centre, but otherwise the neighbourhood is very boring. As for dining it's best to go out. The restaurants are scorchingly expensive. Over €21 for an unremarkable breakfast buffet is not my idea of value. And after a flight in to Barcelona, do hope... More

Modern hotel with good facilities. Nice room. Only negatives are that the sauna and steam rooms were closed when I went there after 9pm, and my room didn't have a safe.

Location was great for the business trip I was on, but is away from the city center. Transportation is readily available though, so not a huge challenge. The room I stayed in was very small and the furniture was falling apart. I would rate this a 2 star hotel at best. However, the breakfast buffet they provided was very good,... More
