We stayed at the AC Som with Marriott Rewards points post-cruise and were pleased with our choice. Yes, this hotel is not in central Barcelona and all of the tourist sites, but there is easy access through the nearby Ildefons Cerda metro stop and a short ride and transfer to everything in your guidebook. In exchange for having a little inconvience by not being in the middle of Barcelona, the rates at this hotel are excellent and our rooms were large (even by American standards) and stylish. A large upscale shopping mall (GranVia 2) with a Carrefours grocery and IKEA are within a reasonable walking distance.
Our two connecting rooms on the 9th floor were large, clean, and quiet. (Another reviewer noted the small size of their room, but our standard rooms were very spacious and had large, well-equiped bathrooms with tub/shower combos). The entire property has a hip boutique hotel vibe and the staff were friendly and helpful. The lobby offers a free wifi connection-- if you need to use the business center computer in the lobby, there is a small fee. The guest services staff were friendly and and fluent in English for non-Spanish speaking travelers. Marta, in particular, was very helpful with our early arrival and baggage storage until our connecting rooms were available later in the day.
A highly recommended hotel for those who need to be in the Fira area, or who would like to have an enjoyable and stylish stay for less money and only a short train ride away from all that Barcelona has to offer!
