Forgot to review ABAC last year. My wife and I stayed there for 5 nights and truly loved the place. It is a unique hotel experience. Very private and away from the hustle and bustle of Barcelona. We would be thrilled to stay with them again. Wish we had booked a room with a balcony. Regardless our room was fantastic.

Such an amazing hotel. The best hotel we have ever stayed in. As soon as we got there the staff were extremely friendly in getting us settled in to our rooms. We had a tour around the hotel were we got to also see the spa area. Such lovely and modern rooms, it almost has a futuristic vibe to it with the glass elevator and open views. Also located in a lovely area, quite a lot of restaurants near by and the metro just outside. The beds were unbelievably comfy if we didn't have so much to do in the city we would have loved to have just stayed in the room all day and enjoyed the rooms comforts. The television was a massive added bonus absolutely huge! Amazing! The bathroom was beautiful a rainfall shower in the centre and a jet tub. Lovely added extras like chocolates on the pillows once we got back to the room. Wish we didn't have to leave! Can definately say we will be returning soon!

This is a small (only 15 rooms) modern hotel in a good location. Originally it was a private residence and therefore doesn't flow like hotel should, I suppose you could call it quirky! Our suite was large, very comfortable and spotlessly clean with a lovely bathroom. The pool and spa was very pleasant for a small hotel. There was an underground car park which was very handy as it would have been very difficult to park nearby. Unfortunately we found the staff to be rather surly, a little bit like they were doing you a favour! We stayed four nights and on one of the nights we dined in the ABaC's 2 Michelin Star Restaurant (now 3 star) and had the 18 course tasting menu. The meal was very good but unfortunately the restaurant lacked atmosphere due to other guests spending most of the evening starring at their iPhones! Again the staff didn't smile and came across rather cold! We arrived the day after the Catalan regional election and the following day Barcelona was on strike, so perhaps this may have an impact on the staff.

This is a beautiful boutique hotel situated in Tibidabo at the end of one of the Metro lines. Although looking tired in places (chipped paint, etc), the room was spacious and very comfortable with a large bathroom with whirlpool bath and separate shower. The hotel has just 15 rooms which is both a strength and a weakness. On the down side, when ringing for room service, it could take several minutes for the ‘phone to be answered. At breakfast, there was only ever one member of staff on duty. Coping with one or two tables was no problem but, when other guests arrived, the level of service decreased and it took a long time to be served. Surely it should be possible for a hotel of this quality to provide additional members of staff when required. Although this is, in so many ways, a wonderful hotel, we’ll probably look to stay elsewhere next time we’re in Barcelona.

The ABaC Hotel is a wonderfully intimate and luxurious boutique hotel. We booked the penthouse and absolutely love the coziness and decor of the room. The beautiful deck isn't the most useful during winter but the private jacuzzi is lovely and a wonderful way to wind down after a day of sightseeing. The rooms are advertised as soundproof and that's mostly true. You don't hear the traffic or noise from the streets but occasionally sounds from the elevator and downstairs can be heard (though to note, I'm supersensitive to sound). The service at ABaC is mostly to notch. Irene, who checked us in and helped us ought train tickets and find local sights to see was particularly helpful. However, another front desk person told us it was impossible to get train tickets without going to the station first and seemed completely uninterested in helping us (thank you Irene for making things easy!) The restaurant, which was just awarded its third Michelin star, is a MUST if you're here. It is an experience from beginning to end and worth every penny. While its not within walking distance of most tourist attractions, ABaC is right across the street from the very convenient and easy to use subway which is only a 10 minute ride to the main square. If you're looking for a quiet hotel a bit off the beaten path, this is it!

ABac was the last stop on our multi city tour of Spain. We wanted to relax and get ready for an early flight back to the states. When we arrived to the Hotel it is more of a coumpound in the city. It is very much a boutique hotel behind a large gate. We were buzzed in and in awe as we walked through the courtyard. As you walk through you can tell that time and attention is paid the the exterior of the hotel with well manicured plants and shrubbery. We entered the lobby and were checked in and shown to our room, we booked the Deluxe Suite. The room (and hotel) is very modern in design, the room was pristine with a chase lounge and oversized bed that was incredibly comfortable. Mood lighting illumates tge room as you enter and the minibar is full of delicious snacks. Although this hotel is out of the city center it is close to the theme park and other things to do. We ventured in the city and found great food and beverages and were ready to retire for the evening. The room has an amazing shower with privacy glass so you can see in the room as you shower but if anyone is in the room they can’t see you. With a great waterfall shower and great smelling shower gels. Once we cozied into the comfortable bed we turned on the large Samsung 4K curved tv (I remember this because I wanted one) we were pleasantly surprised to find that Netflix was available. We watched a great movie and relaxed, also the rooms are soundproof which is great because you can turn up the volume and not worry. We woke up enjoyed coffee from the nespresso, packed and were ready to go. We didn’t have much contact with the staff, but what when we did they were all polite and very courteous. I would definitely return to the 5+ star hotel, next time longer!

ABaC hotel is a wonderful place to stay when visiting Barcelona. The perfect distance from the thick of things, just a short metro ride to whatever you want, located in a quiet neighborhood setting. Walking distance to excellent restaurants and shopping. very comfortable beds, excellent shower with rainfall shower head. Michelin restaurant located on premises. Right next door to a nice outside space. A short ride to the airport. i cant think of a single negative. It's all good.

Located in the north part of Barcelona, this isn't a luxury hotel with very attentive staff. Rooms clean and is located in a quieter part of Barcelona. The tour bus stops right outside the hotel, metro is easy too. Spa is amazing. Las ramblas is about 45 minutes walk. Ideal hotel and would recommend highly.

what an amazing hotel. staff is absolutely superb, go out of their way to help you. room are splendid, well worth your money. location is great as it is near to a metro station and Barcelona has a good network of metro,so you visit the city cheap and fast. restaurant there is just superb,outstanding. stay there if you can afford it. amazing.

We were met after our cruise and taken to the hotel where upon arriving were met by the receptionist where the check in was prompt,efficient and very helpful. Our room was exceptional as were the spa facilities. Breakfast was delicious. This really is an exceptional member of the SLH, to date our favourite I honestly don't think there is any area that could be improved on. Keep up the excellent work look forward to seeing you again.
