A very stylish hotel.

Posted Oct 17, 2017
Pros: Clean and with a feeling of excellence. And very friendly and helpful staff
Cons: The in room TV selection is poor and no in house movies or English programing.
Location: Postioned between town and beach with lots of transport choices outside the hotel
Enjoyable stay. But guests need to understand the policy of debiting credit/ debit cards with an excess charge on checking in against unpaid bills.

Overall it was a very positive experience. One problem was that the area near the pool was very small.

Nice hotel 15 walk to the beach

The hotel is very nice but the staff is not very helpful. We asked for recommendations on things to do and how to get there and they didn't seem very knowledgeable. We had to figure out the public transportation on our own because all they would offer is a taxi. Please be aware of the pricy laundry service.

Clio!

Posted Aug 20, 2017
One word sums up our stay here at AC, Clio. We were unfortunate enough to be in the heart of the terrorist attack area in La Rambla and found ourselves in need to change hotels. After stopping across the street from AC, at the Pri**es Hotel and getting "the terrorist treatment" from one of front counter staff, we ended up visiting AC. At the Guest services counter we met Clio and that's the title of this review. She is the most helpful, kind and hospitable person in Barcelona. My wife and I can't thank her enough. AC is very fortunate to have her as part of their team. We are now in Santorini and her services still reign supreme! The hotel itself is very conveniently located in DT Barca and has a very nice mall directly across the street. The Hilton is also adjacent to this property. The staff are all amazing, the rooms clean and fantastic for the price. Great value. A special thank you to Clio! Calvin and Patrice Akefi

Clean, relaxed location

Posted Aug 6, 2017
Easy walk to beach, which is popular with locals too. Beach bars and facilities at the local beach. Selection of shops, eateries & a big supermarket in 'Diagonal Mar' mall opposite hotel. Metro is a few minutes walk & is easy to use. Tour buses stop outside hotel. Staff were helpful with tips/maps etc. Breakfast highly recommended. Room had comfy beds, handy fridge (minibar), safe & air/con was excellent. Location is fairly quiet on outskirts, but easy to get into hustle & bustle of city when required. Pool was too busy to use, during our stay! But pool deck is nice location for dinner/drinks while watching the sunset.

Hotel stay was very uncomfortable.

Posted Aug 2, 2017
The stay at this hotel was horrible. I was told we would be getting a family room... instead we got two small beds for 3 people. Hotel lied about coming to my room for the daily cleaning. I had to argue to get someone to clean the room. It is actually far from the city center regardless of what the staff say. And the worst was, there was a water leak in our bathroom... the staff didn't believe us on how bad the leak was. When we were told we would need to switch rooms, they didn't have another room available because it wasn't ready. It was very inconvenient and irresponsible of the staff when you are on vacation and don't want to spend any extra time than needed to switch rooms. My husband specifically told the staff we don't want anyone working on the leak while we are out because we had many things laying around, but the maintenance man worked on the room while we were gone. I would never stay at another AC Forum by Marriott.

My favourite hotel

Posted Jul 31, 2017
This was a beautiful hotel, we had a perfect stay. The staff were very friendly and helpful. The only negative I have is that I think the breakfast is very over-priced. Would definitely stay again!

Great location for work and pleasure

The service was on the slow side both at the front desk and in the rooms. Hotel itself is bery nice with beautiful views of Barcelona on one side and the beach on thr side. Great bar and pool also with really good food.
