Good For Solo
Good value for money
This hotel was a good choice. Liked the location -- quiet neighborhood very close to Montjuic attractions and with easy access to public transport going to the city center, as well as to the airport. Liked the modernist layout of the lobby and the rooms. Though we found the room a bit small for a longer stay, it was good enough for the 4 nights we were there. Desk staff were not that friendly or courteous, however. Complimentary bar is a nice touch, especially after a long, hot day out.
Ac Hotel Vilamari
Very modern small hotel close to the tourist areas. The hotel is very clean and has staff which speak English. The only downside of this hotel is that it doesn't have a bar.
Unique Quality: Free water on every floor. Soft drinks, tea, coffee and some pastries are available daily.
Directions: Turn right out of the hotel and right along the main road and in a couple of minutes you are at the nearest metro station (Rocafort).
Comfortable, Modern and Affordable Lodging
The AC Hotel Vilamari is a very comfortable, modern and reasonable affordable hotel located just a few blocks from the Pl. Espanya. The hotel staff is very friendly and helpful and most will speak English for the non Spanish speaker.
The hotel lobby is beautifully decorated with modern decor which mixes perfectly with the grey marble, stainless steel, frosted glass and rich woods. Rooms have the same warm, modern feel and include hardwood (synthetic) floors in addition to marble (synthetic) bathrooms.
The hotel offers a free snack bar with drinks (soda and alcohol) from about 11am until 7pm. At 7 the free snack bar shuts down and dinner is offered in their restaurant at varying prices. We didn't eat at the restaurant.
One of the things that I liked about this hotel is that they offer free, refrigerated bottled water on every floor along with news papers and fresh fruit. It was great to come home after a long hot day and drink some cold, fresh water. We also cheated an took a few bottles with us every morning when we left for the day.
Our room came with a queen size bed, toilet/shower/bath and TV. I was at first concerned that our room would be noisy since it overlooked the street but thanks to their double pained windows we couldn't hear a thing.
The location is very convenient, located just a 5 min walk from the Pl. Espanya metro station. From there you're about 4 stops from Los Rambles and about 7 stops from Sagrada Familia. You can get just about anywhere in a a reasonable amount of time.
The neighborhood around the hotel is relatively quiet and free from the crowds of tourists. In the area you will find a handful of restaurants and shops one of which (I believe called Carpark) is open all night sort of like a 7-11 but with a much bigger selection.
Overall I would highly recommend this hotel to anyone who is concerned with comfort while staying in Barcelona. This is not a budget hotel but it's not as expensive as a luxury hotel. I would put it in the class of business hotels.
Directions: Just a few blocks from the Pl Espanya.
Great value & placing
Set in a central location, this hotel has great value. It is designed for business, but the leisure traveller will certainly enjoy it, too. In this city full of expensive hotels, I would certainly recommend this place.
Unique Quality: Complimentary drinks in the lounge.
Directions: near Placa Espanya
