Great hotel, value for money!

Great (4.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on December 14, 2011

We stayed here 4 nights over New Year's 2010/2011. The hotel is great - big rooms, clean, modern, pool, gym, and free soft drinks in the minibar! Definitely value for money. The hotel is located a few minutes walk from the subway station, so you're very conveniently connected to the rest of the city. However, if you prefer staying right in the city center, in the middle of all the hustle and bustle of the city - this is not for you.

For those who love shopping there's a huge mall 1 minute from the hotel.

Directions: At the end of the Diagonal.

Nice hotel close to the Congress Center

Great (4.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on February 28, 2009

I've spent a couple of days here. The hotel is just next door to the Congress center (CCIB), kind of handy unless you are not attending a congress! This is quite far from the center and there is not much to do around. Thanks god, there is a metro station at walking distance.

The architecture of the building and the surrounding is quite new and definitely with a modern touch. I find it a bit too cold/unpersonal, maybe due to winter!

I really appreciated my room, it was furnished in a modern way! For once, no dirty carpet but some fake wooden floor. The bed was indeed made of two narrow single bed, not the most comfortable I've seen but it was ok.

The bathroom was rather kitsch! There was a really nice glass lavabo but it is a real pity, they covered all the wall with a green marble imitation!

The good thing about the breakfast is that it was included. Other than that, don't expect too much from the buffet, a few warm thing and then mostly sweet options.

Wireless connectivity was available but you have to buy a pre-paid card from the reception.

Unique Quality: There was a *free* mini bar, just a few soda and a couple of beer but that's mostly what you'd need anyway.
First time I see this...

Directions: Close to the CCIB

The closest to CCIB

Best (5.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on August 28, 2008

I have been staying in this hotel for several days in a row during a congress I had organized. The AC Barcelona is the closest one to the CCIB, the International Congress Centre. It is in the same block. Actually several other hotels are very near and all of them are as new as the AC, because this is a newly developed area of the city.
I was extremely pleased with the choice, because the hotel is not only beautiful, with perfectly appointed rooms and bahrooms, but also provides very good service, including a great buffet breakfast.
The minibar is free of charge. There is not much, only soft drinks, fruit juice and beer, but those are precisely the things I look for when I am thirsty.
I was impressed also by its internet point, located just behind the lobby, because it has eight or ten computers, vs. the one or two as I usually see in most hotels.
The centre of the city is not near, but there is a Metro station just across the street, and also the tram, which I personally prefer.
If you want to go shopping, there is a large mall just across the street.
With regard to prices, they change considerably according to the dates of events at the CCIB.

Unique Quality: Apart from being so convenient to the CCIB, a big quality of this hotel is the sea view. Although I must say that also the view of the hills on the other side is very nice, I recommend to try to obtain a room on the side facing the sea.

Directions: At the end of the Diagonal Mar avenue, by the sea.
