Reviewed September 17, 2012

We found the front desk unfriendly and unwilling to resolve a problem with the internet; we were told "Only Macs cannot access the wifi." What??? We had to make do with a work around for five days.

The AC in our room was anemic and the bathroom ceiling was falling apart.

Room Tip: Next time we'll stay elsewhere.

Stayed 4 nights. Reception staff friendly and they spoke English. Get safe key at reception, refundable 10euro deposit.
Rooms are a good size, beds comfortable. We were on 4th floor, not disturbed by traffic.Room has air conditioning (included in the room rate)
Breakfast buffet had a good choice. Never a problem in getting a table - we ate from between 08:00 and 09:00am. Issues were that the staff were a bit slow to clean the tables for the next guests and to replenish items that had run out.
Used the T10 ticket to get around (includes train from airport). I would walk from Sants railway station to the hotel as its as close as other nearby metro stations circa 10 minutes.
If you have any difficulty getting around then this might not be the hotel for you as most things ie restaurants, sights, metro, etc are a distance away albeit plenty of bars nearby (signed as bar restaurants serving "fast food"

Room Tip: Look to get a room on 4th floor or above if you might be disturbed by traffic noise.

Had a lovely 4 days stay with my partner at the hotel. Staff were all very friendly, welcoming and helpful, Rooms were clean and spacious, and the room we had on the top floor came with its very own roof terrace. As for location, we read very mixed reviews - we didn't find getting round the city hard from the hotel, nearest metro was less than 10 mins away and super easy to use.

Would highly recommend the Hotel AB Viladomat.

I only stayed for a few days, and honestly i was pleasantly surprised at how clean and friendly this hotel was. The staff are a real credit, always smiling and nothing is too much trouble. The rooms are similar to a premier inn....they have everything you need, including a t.v and a mini bar and the beds are comfortable, plus the maid service is daily. The bathrooms are a great size and fitted with modern fitments. The only negatives were...the main bar was always closed, and the location is a little far out of the main hub, but there are buses close by and taxis right outside. We mainly opted to walk everyday as the sun was shining, but a taxi is only about £5 to the main stretch or £6 to the beach. I would definitely stay here again, thank you for a lovely clean stay x

I stayed 5 days in this hotel in May 2011 and I"d recommend it. It has good service and is located quite close to the metro line, besides being a residential area, it has its cozy atmosphere. The continental breakfast has a good variety. There's also a bus service to the airport in street nearby. In case of doubt you can ask any Barcelona citizen, specially elderly people who are pleased to help.

Room Tip: ask for a room far from the street and the lift.

when we first arrived we where not 100% sure on the hotel after some mix ups and dodgy tea but after the first day we made our mind up that it was a good hotel overall. we were only there for 4 nights but we were pleased with the full bathroom (which was spottlessly clean!). the staff were attentive and helpfull, advising us about the city. the only downside was the traffic noise but this will be the same nearly anywhere in Barcelona. the hotel was a fair distance from tourist hotspots but there was a taxi rank outside the hotel, we found this useful on our day of departure. :)

I stayed here for a week august 2012. Before I left the Uk I read a few dubious comments about the hotel but when i arrived i was pleasantly surprised. The staff on reception were fantastic and got us checked in quickly. They also answered all questions we had about the area. Our room was a good size and was very clean. The room was well cleaned everyday and the cleaning staff even found a book of vouchers we had lost and left it on the table. The room had a flat screen tv but there were not a lot of english channels. As for the location the hotel is situated between two metro stops but we enjoyed walking around the local area and always felt safe even walking around at night. I would highly recommend a stay in this hotel.

Room Tip: The rooms that are road facing can be noisy with scooters passing at all hours of the night.
