Very good hotel on a good location, nearby metro/train station.
Floor was not so clean, and very poor WIFI (which I needed badly for my business)

We had 3 nights at the abba sants hotel post cruise sep/12 We found the hotel to be just as we wanted not far to the centre and magic fountain etc about 10-15 min walk or you have the tourist buses hop on off which pass through sants or metro or train station on the door step and it is not as noisy as the main centre what more can you ask for?I would not bother with the restaurant above the converted bullring shopping centre very expensive and a complete insult to spanish cuisine well thats how we found it maybe you will have better luck. there are restaurants and bars near the abba sants which are good one is named (ASADOR DE LUGO)it is near the train station.our room at the abba sants was very large and on one of the highest floors it was at the back and had a balcony we did not suffer any bad noise. we found are room at the hotel very clean and the breakfast good and also included caver if you would like it. also nespresso coffee.This was part of my 50th holiday celebrations and the hotel were aware of this and made our stay very enjoyable even to placing a bottle of something sparkling in our room as a surprise.Thank you to all staff at the abba sants and we will see you again soon.

Room Tip: higher the better. back of hotel. balcony

We stayed at the Abba Sants for 3 nights, and had a great time. It was literally steps from the metro entrance, and a short walk from the Regional train line which we took directly from the airport. We were able to check in upon our arrival at 11am, no problem. The concierge gave us directions as needed, though we had done a good amount of research on our own. The room was clean, the A/C worked, and we had a balcony which was just perfect in the summer evenings.

Breakfast at the hotel was great, staff was friendly and there was always someone at the front desk to assist if we needed.

Room Tip: Ask for a balcony!

I spent 3 nights in September 2012 at the Abba Sants located within easy walking distance of the Sants train station. This is an older property that is a bit worn, but clean. The room with the a/c on is bit damp & musty, neither of which are noticeable after a while. Barcelona is next to the ocean so it may be just a by-product of the climate. The best thing about the Abba is there is an entry point to the Sants Metro station right outside of the hotel. The Metro map may look intimidating at first, but after a few trips it’ll all come together. You will need to use the Metro for the Abba Sants is located out of the way from the tourist area. Two very important Metro lines for tourists, L3 will take you to the heart of Barcelona Placa Catalunya (take L3 heading for Nova) & L5 will take you to Sagrada Familia (take L5 heading for Gorg). Both lines are directly accessible via the Sants Metro station. Be sure to buy the 10 trips in 1 ticket.

Best part of my trip was biking along the beach front on the bike/walk trail. Great for views, people watching, lots restaurants & music. To get to the beach area from the hotel via the Metro take the L3 line heading to Nova, transfer to L4 line at Passeig de Gracia, take the L4 heading to La Pau & get off at Ciutadella Vila Olimpica station. The beach is 10 minutes-walk south of the station (just follow the crowd).

Located on 4 mins walk from Sants Railway Station (very easy to come from/go to airport), this is a fair 4* hotel. Kind and helpful front office. Nice, spacious and clean rooms. Bathroom well equiped, carpet in room clean, desk to work, laptop safe, mini bar, fairly good quality beds, air conditioning functioning well.
Bar keepers looking well after guests, including mixed nuts with the drinks.
Breaksfast buffet has good variety of products, incl FRESH juices.
Although not most interesting area, worthwhile to pay bit less than heart of the city. For only € 2,00 by bus, you're in 15 mins on Ramblas.

This is a standard business hotel - large, clean, well appointed bedroom and bathroom, with excellent transport links to the touristy areas. Rooms at the front are on a busy road, and on lower floors this may be too noisy for some. There is also nothing to do in the immediate area round the hotel, so it is just a place to retrun to sleep after seeing the sights.
Overall, because of significant discounts on the room rate, the hotel was good value for what we wanted and the room quality and service was very good. That said, if you are looking for accommodation in the thick of things and with a lot of character then this is not the hotel for you.

Room Tip: Ask for a room on one of the higher floors, preferably at the back, if noise from a busy road will k...

We stayed here for 3 nights prior to a cruise. It's a very nice clean hotel that offers a good full breakfast, close to metro and train station, and friendly service. The only downside is that it feels isolated from the attractions in the center of town. But good public transportation still allows access to it.
