Hotel is in a very good location,

Posted Dec 31, 2017
Pros: Everything, from the staff to the décor and presentation of the hotel
Cons: The shower screen didn't have a seal at the bottom of the screen, which when using the shower the tiled floor became very wet and slippery
Location: Excellent Location, very easy links to the Tram, Metro and bus services also there is the Diagniol Mar ac with loads of shops & Restaurants
What can I say, the staff are superb, very approachable and very helpful I would also like to thank Kamila who went that extra mile and a big thankyou to the hotel who made my girlfriends birthday extra special with a complementary bottle of champagne. Barcelona is a lovely city and the AC Hotel Barcelona Forum by Marriot is a lovely place to be Regards Ted & Zoe

4* hotel with strange smell in lobby, cold food

Posted Dec 3, 2017
Pros: View, fast elevators
Cons: Get that bad smelling perfume out of the lobby, and stop charging extra for cooking eggs if you can't offer hot food. Breakfast buffet more vegetables
I normally stay at another hotel when I visit Barcelona but it was full, so I booked at the AC. The strange perfume smell in the lobby was an awful welcome, it was like being fumigated. The room was nice, I wish the windows went lower to have more view. Bathrooms were very nice. Breakfast buffet was for me a disaster. I can not eat gluten, dairy or sugar, and normally eat eggs with potatoes for breakfast. These were only available in the "Warmer" which had them lukewarm at best. By the time I got the dish to the table, it was totally cold. I asked for 4 minute eggs which they told me would cost 5 Euros extra and when I got these eggs, they were more like 2.5 minute eggs, lukewarm and runny. The elevators were very fast though. That part was nice. Will not go back.

Great Hotel

Posted Oct 22, 2017
Pros: The views and modern vibe of the hotel are what makes this a great place to stay.
Cons: The bar staff needs to be more attentive to it's customers and ensure that the drinks and food are always flowing.
Location: The location is right near the beach and at the end of the Diagonal. This is a great location and a great neighborhood.
The AC Hotel in Barcelona is beautiful. The rooftop bar gives you a view of the ocean and the city. What a great place to enjoy a glass of cava and the views. The staff was very nice and helpful. Especially the front desk staff.

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.

Could have been better

Posted Sep 20, 2017 on Hotels
The hotel is beautiful. It is very modern and very clean. Close to the beach and we had a nice sea view. Pool area and restaurant area are very trendy. Our issue was that outside of the hotels entrance was a festival with music blasting. We called at 8pm and were assured the music was only until 10. At 1:30am it was still blasting. I wish more information had been provided. And offering to move my room would have been more appropriate at 8pm not when I called back at 12am.

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

Posted Aug 24, 2017
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
