The hotel was a great location being just off the metro with easy access to the train station as well as the originating point for the hop on/off buses. The hotel staff helped with tour info as well as other travel.
Breakfast was very nice.
Hotel features (5 = best, 1 = worst):
Short walk from hotel
Get the ten trip metro pass. It will allow you to cover more territory and get more sights and attractions in.
Barcelona is a very big city, much more so than even we realized. While I would be the first to advocate walking above ground as so not to miss the beauty and architecture everywhere, the city has one of the very best Metro systems, clean and super efficient and will help you have an even better trip.
Wonderful hotel in an excellent location if you're arriving late at Sants station. Extremely convenient transportation to the airport nearby. Staff was friendly and rooms were comfortable! We will definitely go back there next time we go to
A friend I was visiting in Barcelona suggested that I stay at Abba Sants because it's close to transportation and in a good neighborhood. What I found was better than I could have imagined! The room was perfect! It was modern, large, well
equipped, good air-conditioning, with lots of drawer and closet space. The bathroom was also very large and well-designed, everything new and clean. The staff was courteous, helpful, and informative. The lobby was large and comfortable, the bar and restaurant very nice.
Transportation by metro and train was only steps away from the hotel. I was able to get to every destination in minutes. The neighborhood felt safe and there were many cafes and shops nearby. I was pleased to find that the Diagonal was only a few blocks away.
I will definitely stay there again when I return to Barcelona.
Excellent location as we just took the train from airport to Sants station and hotel is easy 5min walk. We had room on 7th floor with large balcony that overlooked city !!!! so ask for room on 7th floor.
There is a great pastry shop across street
for breakfast for about 10 euros. Hotel is in very nice location and we walked 1/2 mile down to Pl Espanya train station to catch train to Montserrat (a must do day trip) Also take funicular to the old fort on top of the hill near Olympic park for a great view of the city of Barcelona.
Decent hotel. 3-4 star. About a 100 ft. walk to the metro, which was excellent. Good value hotel for Barcelona. There is a dog park out back, which is amusing if you like dogs, but could be annoying if you're trying to siesta mid-day.
