the service was fast... they front desk explain everything very clear... the room was perfect en the bathroom very nice

No internet Access in My Room Despite the staff at knew that I do not have any Wi-Fi; however, they did not offer any solution for my room and in particular, any room above the second floor, unless the last day of my stay there. I could not believe this hotel was part of Marriott organization. They absolutely did not know what they are doing as a hospitality organization. They offered below average breakfast buffet, which adds up to their overall rating as a welcoming hotel with a skill management lineup.

Excellent location and staff, the room is clean and the bed is comfortable, internet access is fast. Within walking distance to Buses and trains. I'd definitely come back here.

Great hotel. Close to metro station. 20 minutes walking distance to Pl. Espanya

I needed a hotel to stay for one night before embarking on a 7-day European cruise. I chose this hotel for price point, but was a bit disappointed when I arrived to discover it's a bit of a haul to get to the tourist destinations. The hotel is closest to convention and meeting space, as well as to the Justice Building, but not really near any tourist locations. There are several bus lines that run nearby, but I chose to walk about a mile to the nearest Metro station which was able to deposit me into the city-center in less than 15 minutes. Additionally, there isn't much in the way of restaurants open, especially on the weekend as it was very obvious this is a M-F weekday part of town. Overall the room was very clean, the staff extremely helpful, and free Wi-Fi in the lobby. The bar was a nice touch to grab a drink before heading off to bed. I was also delighted at both the size of the room and the amenities.

Hotel is about 10 minutes from the airport. Staff was very helpfull. Rooms are fair size and clean. Hotel is near a beautifull mall with various restaurants. Would stay here again for a short stay.

Very nice, add a star to this one. Lots of free amenities. Good proximity to airport without hearing the planes take off. Close to food sources. Room was dark and quiet.

We had a great time at this hotel. Very well located, close to bus and train transportation. Staff was courteous and very professional. Rooms were great size, very modern and more than I was expecting. I would recommend it this hotel to anyone and I will definetely use them again when going to Barcelona.

This hotel is in an excellent location with both the Metro and bus systems having nearby stops. The Ramblas area is only four stops away on the Metro. The airport is a 20 minute bus ride. The hotel was quiet, clean and had nice bathroom amentities. There is a large shopping center just a five minute walk from the hotel.

It is important for my fellow travlors to be aware that there is a Calle L'Architectura in both Barcelona and in the Barclona Vicinity (were AC Som is located.) When I arrived in Barcelona Airport, I went to the TI office to get help finding the hotel. They suggested I take the Metro, and gave me directions that were easy to follow; unfortunaly, they were directions to the wrong street! Adding to my frustration was the fact that there are no elevators in the Metro and the escaltors only go out. Many friendly and helpful locals helped me carry my suitcase up and down and up and down the maze of stairs. When I realized that I had been given bad directions I called the hotel for help. The clerk (Alex) was so helpful and patient. I can't say enough about how I appreciated his help. All the staff that I dealt were welcoming and spoke both spanish and english. The room itself was modern, clean and comfortable. The location is the only negative about this hotel. While a bus stop is conviently located out side the main entrance it will take about 30 minutes via bus and metro to reach Las Ramblas. Public transit is cheap, but you will want to take this into consideration before booking a room. P.S. The hotel offers a free mini bar, which was a nice surprise.

The Hotel itself is excellent and 200 meters from the metra or bus. It is a little outside the city but the area is quiet. A huge shopping mall with restaurants is next door. We recommend the hotel because it's clean, quiet.

the hotel is very clean and a great price for people looking to visit Barcelona on a budget. There is a wonderful shopping center across the street called Grand Via 2. Across from that is a metro stop that can take you into the city center with connecting in Placa Espanol. The location is not near the city center, but it's close to the airport. The staff is very friendly and the breakfast is very inexpensive which is fabulous. It's not in a high tourist area so the prices everywhere are great. Please note that the hotel class is so different from US standards. We are spoiled americans and expect everything, but when you have a clean room and fresh towels and friendly service, that is what makes the best experience when you are traveling overseas.
