“it was a good Choice in Barcelona”
Reviewed July 13, 2013

This was a Businesstrip to Barcelona. As it already have been recommended to me from other Businesspartners, i did went into this "AC Hotel" Hotel and i can say, that it was a good Choice. It is managed by Mariott hotel Group. It have a nice and cosy Design - i liked it. Top friendly Service there. Staff did speak good english and also they gave me few good Recommendation for some typical Restaurants in that Area. Also in that Area have been a large Train Station and few very good Shops.

Perfect in every way. Clean, modern, excellent use of space in rooms (most hotels in Barcelona are small by US standards, but these rooms were large for Barcelona, and felt even more spacious because of their contemporary design). All the employees made every possible effort to make our stay wonderful. Monica and Ilanith (and one other girl whose name I can't recall) went way beyond the call of duty. They offered us free passes to places when we just mentioned where we were going, they even found us a wheelchair for my elderly mother, even though the hotel did not offer it. We were coming here after a cruise so we arrived quite early, and they were nice enough to provide us with rooms by 11:30 a.m. We felt completely at home here. Breakfast was excellent quality, fresh juices, breads, danishes, hams, etc. Would definitely stay there again. We travel extensively and have had good service at many places, but I have to say this was the best service ever. As others, I agree that the location was good because of proximitey to subway, but many places are also walking distance. Many restaurants nearby, including McDonalds across the street at the train station.

Room Tip: Get a Marriott Visa ($50/yr) and you get a free room once a year plus a bonus for signing up. We go...

I stayed at the hotel for only one night as part of a two week rail trip around Europe and this hotel is within a couple hundred meters of the Barcelona Sants railway station. About the only major facility I used was the Internet connection which worked reasonably well. The room was quite spacious although a bit unusual in shape.

We spent one night at the AC Sants Hotel on May 31, 2013. We chose this hotel because we understood it was very close to the train station where we were to pick up our rental car in the morning. In reality, it is extremely close - a two minute walk out the front door to the Sants main railway station.

Hotel Pro's:
--------------
+ Interior has a clean, modern design
+ Room was small but clean, well-designed and reasonably quiet
+ Air conditioning!
+ Check in was smooth and easy. We are Marriott Rewards members and this is always a plus.
+ Two minute walk to the Sants train station. Rail, bus, taxi and rental car transport are all available.
+ Fitness center on-site (small)
+ 10 minute walk to the Carrer de la Creu Coberta, which is a main shopping and restaurant street that leads to the palace and art museum. (Note: we had a great dinner at Casa de tapes Bar & Restaurant located @ address 48 on this street. Just a little basement place with a great selection of paella and other foods.)
+ Free Wi-Fi in the lobby

Hotel Con's
--------------
- Continental breakfast was underwhelming. Lots of breads but limited cereals, no eggs and meat selection was weak.
- Wi-Fi was not free in the room. Figure at least 10 euros per day.
- Not well known among cab drivers. In two separate rides, I had to show the cab driver a map on my iPhone to get him to the hotel. Definitely bring an address with you, and at least a small map. Our advice is to ask the cab driver to take you to the Sants Railway Station as an anchor point.

There is not much to complain about quality of room and location. It is just outside Santa staton and so transport connection is never a problem. There are quite a few restaurants serving tapas nearby and few cafes too. Most of the tourist hotspots are a short metro ride away.

Rooms are standard - fairly spacious and with expected fixtures and amenities.

However, I am giving only two stars as we found someone else's dirty socks on the chair when we first checked in the room! This shows a tremendous casualness in cleaning rooms and deserves a low rating. Also, as pointed out by others, the hotel is bit pricey compared to other hotels in the same category.

The location of the hotel was great. By a train station along with the Metro for ease to get around the city. For us getting around on the Metro was great, a couple stops and transfers got us to the main tourist spots without having any issues. We didn't stay out too late but felt safe in the area and didn't have any issues.

Our room was a bit noisy, not sure if we were by the maid's cleaning area but every morning it was noisy out our door area. There wasn't free wi-fi in your room but there its free on the main first floor.

I'd stay here again if I was to visit due to price and location.

Our recent stay at this hotel was enjoyable, especially the outstanding help we received from the receptionist (we think her name is Natasha) in obtaining tickets to the Sagrada Familia, something we had tried to do unsuccessfully before leaving home. The location is good for transportation and for small restaurants nearby for breakfast and dinner. We would have liked to have had the ability to make some coffee or tea in our room as many hotels offer.
