We stayed there recently and loved the hotel. It's large, modern, clean and close to the beach and a Metro station to get you to all of Barcelona's sights. We had a nice modern room overlooking the Mediterranean for 3 nights and had no complaints. The bar on the 1st floor (2nd floor for us North Americans) was great and... More

Overall spotless hotel with good facilities and within easy walk to the beach & local shopping centre (Diagonal Mar) for a range of restaurants/shopping/cafe's. We chose to walk into central Barcelona which took approximately 1 hour at a gentle pace. The room was slightly cluttered but well equipped. However, the value for money was marginally questionable compared to other comparable... More

Barcelona is a beautiful city and so is this hotel. The hotel is very modern and the rooms are very smart and sophisticated, as well as comfortable and clean. I had a room overlooking the Sea. It was beautiful. I felt fortunate to get this room because I actually opted for the lowest rate. So, this was nice. As another... More

I wanted a compromise between the culture of the city centre and the joy of laying in the Barcelona sunshine. The AC Barcelona fitted the bill perfectly. A friendly, very efficient hotel that is clean and very comfortable. The bathrooms are very well appointed in green marble and contain luxury fittings. The hotel pool situated on the 13th floor was... More

My 15 year old son and I spent 4 days at the AC Barcelona at the end of our trip so I could attend a conference. It is located in an industrial area away from the heart of the city but it worked for us. It is close to the beach and even though it is not the best beach,... More

Lovely hotel in Barcelona. Clearly business class hotel (new and high standard hotel). Maybe a bit far away from the down-town but metro station is nearby as well as a big shopping center. Great gym at 13th floor, including swimming pool with sea-view.

My wife and I stayed at this hotel for 7 nights because it was the conference hotel chosen by our professional society for its annual conference.
