We stayed 4 nights at Abba Sants Hotel. The hotel is about 15 mins away from the airport (about 25-30£) & very close (5 min walk) to Sants train station. The surrounding area is quite but we enjoyed two good meals nearby (Plaza Catalunya). The hotel itself looks rather grand but our room was far from that! It was just average & the bathroom door was once wet which prohibited from closing. The staff (especially Javier) was helpful & informative. They assisted us 2 nights with dinner recommendations & reservations. Depending on why & who I return to Barcelona will determine if I stay again. I prefer a much more lively atmosphere.
We stayed one night, arriving and departing by train. The hotel is very close (5 minutes) to Sants station. The surrounding area is quite pleasant; we enjoyed two good meals in nearby street cafes. The hotel itself looks rather grand (we were allocated a rather grand room on 7th floor, don't know why). But the restaurant was a bit too fancy for our needs; it lacks a simple cafe in the hotel, but there is plenty of choice nearby.
Stayed on a group tour. Great location - short walk to some great sights, and the Metro station is right there. However, the room left a lot to be desired. Uncomfortable beds, broken shower head, weak air conditioning. On our first night, we had to request a new duvet and pillow cases because the ones in the room appeared to have a blood splatter on them = gross. Not sure I'd repeat this experience...
Half block to the subway (6 stops) to La Ramblas. Three blocks to the train station with $4 shuttle to the airport. Very friendly staff, nice room with outdoor deck. Decent area with quite a few restaurants, but best to take metro to La Ramblas for dinner.
Stayed for 1 night with my 8-years old son, enjoyed a nice room and good location for our visit = relatively close to the Camp Nou and the Sants train station. Wifi was smooth and good in most places (not in bed though). Breakfast was nice, especially when they only charged me (15 euro) and waived my son charge (I didn't ask, they just did). Pleasant and good-English receptionists. Nice places to eat close by (out of the hotel and to the left a fair restaurant recommended by the reception, just after it a nice pizza place).
The hotel is easily accessed using the metro from the airport as it is close to a major station. One of the metro entrances is just outside the door of the hotel and allows access to everywhere in the city. I like the neighborhood as there are grocery stores, coffee shops, restaurants nearby and not a long walk to some sights nearby. The area feels safe at night, which may be important to some. The hotel rooms are comfortable enough, but my room was particularly noisy as it was on the lower level on the street side, so would recommend getting the other side if you have a choice.
We stayed one night arriving late in the evening and leaving early the next morning so the experience was quite short. The front desk service was very friendly. But as we got to our room it was hard to believe that we are in 4 star hotel. The room was dark and did not feel clean. The bathroom needed renovation. Bathroom door had water damage. The room did not feel comfortable at any way. No extras, no coffee machine. Maybe we happened to be in that part of hotel which was not renovated yet? Don't know. We were more than happy to leave next morning and are not staying there again.
Basic, no frills, clean room. Here on a tour, so can't comment on value since price was included. Good included breakfast with hot protein choices. Location not close to major tourist location. Two super markets just around the corner. Several restaurants nearby in addition to the hotel restaurant.
I recently stayed at this hotel with my girlfriend and we had an interesting time. First impressions of the hotel were good, the staff were very helpful at check in. Upon arriving at our room we discovered we had a room with a balcony to which we did not ask for #Santastic #Upgrade! The only downside is that we had asked for a double bed and were given 2 single beds pushed together to create said requested double bed, these were spacious and comfortable but did slide apart on numerous occasions, which in the middle the night during a nice dream about the Sagradia Familia can be quite a fright! For the first day, we were very impressed by the bathroom. Marble tiles and sinks were nice. The second day we decided to see the sights of Catalunya and returned to the room to discover a smell that could burn the hairs from your nostrils, although this smell could also be smelt in and around Barcelona so I will put this down to a problem with their drains as a city on a whole. It also only occurred after we used the power shower. I don't however recommend using the bum cleaner, as when squatting over the bowl and turning on the water supply, the pressure of the water fired the cap off of the tap like a shot gun bullet and I nearly lost my testicles. It also took a small chunk of China from the sink. The bar of the hotel was very nice, created a very authentic Spanish vibe and the complimentary nuts were a nice touch. My only advise here would be to never ask a Spanish bar tender if they have Sangria. I can only assume he took offence and poured us what can only be described as death in a glass. There was more alcohol poured into the drink than in Paul Gasgoines blood tests. I lost count of the different bottles he picked up and the amount of sugar he sprinkled over the ice could've finished a diabetic. Also, as soon as you check out you no longer receive the complimentary nuts which put the end of the holiday on a bit of a downer #SadTimes The mini bar in the room was fully stocked and as the local supermarket was closed, I decided to satisfy my needs for a savoury snack and indulged the Pringles and Toblerone. I washed this down with an ice cold San Miguel. Upon discovery of the price list in the room I calculated that my snacking outburst had cost me a whopping total of €12.40!! I therefore took it upon myself to replenish the stock on my way home from La Rambla, even opting for the same flavour of Pringles #Tactical. I re stocked the fridge and when questioned at check out on my mini bar usage I simply said "No, nothing from the mini-bar". Apparently honesty is the best policy in Barcelona, as I avoided any charges. When checking out the staff again we're very helpful, nothing was too much trouble. We reprinted our lost boarding passes and held our luggage at reception until our flight. Also exceptionally helpful with Hoppa. One of the staff was a little strange when hanging around for us to say thank you to him after his colleague took the praise #FOMO. I can say that I was looking forward to a good nights sleep without the anxiety of slipping into freefall through the gorge in the beds onto the cold abyss of the floor. Overall a great hotel, you get what you pay for. If you're going to Barcelona it's a nice surrounding room and a bed to sleep in. Thank you Abba Sants #Santastic
Hotel has all amenities required, very very close to underground station (literally meters from front door) and on the main line into city centre. Could walk to camp nou (about 20mins). Bed is huge but not the comfiest, but if you're just looking for somewhere to sleep at night... just the thing. Watch out though we hadn't booked breakfast online and it was €15 a person, so if you want quantity great, but quality not amazing.
