We came back to Abac, after three years, and we found everything perfect. Again we stayed at room 812, which enjoys a beatiful terrace. My wife also enjoyed the spa, which is small but really chic. Special greetings to Pilar, the women in charge of breakfast, who makes you feel like at home. And the rest of the staff is simply fantastic. In my view, Abac is the best urban hotel in Spain.

Luxury boutique hotel, we got a free room upgrade - bonus! Clean, well appointed rooms. The hotel is not near the main attractions like Ra Lambla, etc. but we loved the area anyway. Used the Metro (across the road from the hotel) to get around which was a pleasure - clean, efficient & cheap. The huge breakfasts were a treat as well.

My husband and I were looking for a quiet but conveniently located hotel with luxurious amenities to spend our week in Barcelona. ABaC a luxury boutique hotel far exceeded our expectations. The hotel staff were very friendly and looked into all our needs promptly by booking tickets for popular sights, recommending places to visit, dine and chill. Our room overlooked lush greenery which was very soothing to wake up to in the mornings. I just loved the bed and bedding the best. You could just sink into the bed after a long day out and have a very restful and peaceful night. The shower and mood lighting was also amazing and modern.
And finally I would like to recommend the ABaC Restaurant. You should go for the degustation menu. We were serenaded with the most exotic flavours throughout the evening, and cava and wines to match. It was indeed a very memorable experience. Thanks to the very professional and friendly staff.

Room Tip: Choose the rooms facing the garden.

My best experience in an hotel from all the trips i have done, Little but comfortable spa ( the two times we used it there was all of it for us, prívate spa jajaj, I suppose because there are very few rooms) as far as I remember the spa has vapor sauna, cold water pool, jacuzzi hot water( sort of beds inside the jacuzzi, very nice) and great massages, spa out of charge fOr all guests. U got to try the restaurant, its expensive but it totally worths it, creative and delicious food. It is located in residential zone, u have very near tibidabo and it is like u where living in barcelona and just at the entrance of the hotel u got underground starion and taxi station and u will be in the city center in máximum 10 minutes. Absolutely recommendable

We went there to celebrate New Year's eve and my son's birthday and that was an unforgettable night. The staff was most helpful and courteous, food and drinks were far beyond anything that one could wish, so were the music and the decorations. The hotel is far from the crowded centre and provides an ultimate intimacy and enough space for feeling at home.

This ultra modern hotel is conveniently located near a metro station (just across the street). Located in a neighborhood, away from the main tourist area which was not a big deal for us since we had a car and with the metro being so close. The neighborhood does not have many restaurants, but there is a nice bakery/cafe across the street that makes excellent cappuccinos, bread, croissants, pastries, and ready made sandwiches. Although the hotel offers breakfast with a nice selection of breakfast items, we preferred the cafe across the street for having coffee, croissants and fresh squeezed OJ every morning. There are also several small markets within a 5 minute walk for picking up fruit, wine, gourmet goodies, etc. I would HIGHLY recommend making a reservation for dinner at the hotel restaurant. It's a bit pricey, but well worth the experience. There is seating available inside or outside on the garden patio. Although the patio garden is a beautiful setting, I would advise sitting inside due to loud traffic noise that somewhat distracted from the whole culinary experience. Also, we did get surprised by a rain shower later in the evening and had to be moved inside to finish our dessert course. Our room was very quiet despite the fact it was facing a busy street. The accommodations are quite modern with tastefully appointed, generously sized rooms and bathrooms. The bed and down filled pillows were very comfortable and dressed in quality bed linens. The hotel is very private and secure with several gated entrances and a gated underground garage. Most importantly the staff was extremely nice and very helpful.
