Great Hotel, Great Location

It was only used a base for exploring the city, but the staff were great and the room was excellent value for money. It is a few metres from a metro station - which was handy for getting around and a few hundred metres from the bus station. Did NOT use any amenities, so they may have been better than my rating.

Money-saving tip: Short walk from hotel

The Barcelona card is only good if you use the free/discount entry into museums - otherwise go for the 10 ticket metro bundle. I would have saved 30 or more euros per person on a 4 day break

staff not very helpful

Aside from the fact that the cleaning staff enter your room at 8 am to clean and the maintenance staff enter your room at 6 pm randomly without explanation and quickly leave when they realize someone is inside, the desk staff is also very unhelpful. If someone calls for you, they do not record the message. If you lose something, they make no effort to help find it. Very poor service.

Bring your ear plugs

This hotel is beautiful and very comfortable. It has an excellent breakfast buffet with everything you could want to eat or drink. It is wonderful except for one thing. The cleaning staff begin cleaning around 7 am. The vacuuming above your room at 7 is definitely loud enough to wake you, when the vacuum slams into all of the furniture and walls but if that wasn't enough...you will definitely be up for the day when the maid opens the door to your room at 8 am to clean! It is nice of them to allow people to check in early but I would rather wait to check in than be awoken this way, particularly when one is recovering from jetlag! This should definitely be changed. Otherwise, bring your ear plugs and don't forget to put the do not disturb sign on the door or you will get a fun surprise early in the morning.

Comfy and reliable hotel

We arrived early that day to check in our luggage but the hotel had our room available! It was nice to be able to get our room, hours before check in! The bathroom was nice and spacious as well as the room (there were 2 of us). Wifi is shared/free so slow, but i'm not complaining that it's free. Professional service and took care of our issues very well. Super close to the metro, like 50 feet away from it so it's a convenienent location to get to other places.

Unassuming exterior, great interior

The hotel is a couple of blocks uphill from Barcelona Sants train station. It is an inexpensive train ride from the airport - just take the Renfe train from terminal 2 (there is a shuttle bus from terminal 1 to terminal 2) and get off at the "BARNA SANTS" stop. The hotel doesn't look like much from the outside but inside the rooms are very nice. The restaurant downstairs has a fixed price menu that is a good value.

What I most liked about abba sants is staff were able to speak English and very helpful with directions and calling museums for us to make sure they were open. Also hotel is one block from train station. Andceven closer to metro subway.

Good hotel

The staff was great and always had someone who spoke English since my Spanish isn't the strongest. They offer an ironing service, which is expensive, but no iron in the room. That was a little annoying and inconvenient. My wife and I used the Metro to get around everywhere and there is a station right outside the hotel. That was great. The bed wasn't very comfortable, but we managed. Good hotel, but not outstanding, for the price.

extended cruise

Good location to transportation, bus terminal (Sants) was just a couple of blocks from hotel. We used the hop on hop off bus for transportation, the location for this was at this station too.Was able to tour and see many of the sights we wanted to for the 3 days we were there. Hotel clean and the staff was very good at helping us with any questions.We stayed in an inside room since I needed a handicap accessible bath. No noise, in fact almost too quiet. Not very many restaurants close by, but did eat at a couple of them, Friends down the street and Frankfurt across the street, these were more reasonably priced than others....of course everything in Europe is more expensive than what we are used to in the Midwest USA !!!!!
