5.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

The receptionist who checked us in wasn't at all friendly. We said hello to her, but she acknowledged us after she finished her conversation with the bell-man. Even after that she wasn't willing to find out our needs for the room. I was very surprised that this hotel was considered to be a 5 star. The staff at breakfast were all nice.

The hotel is located right in the center of the city within easy walking distance to most attractions (Placa de Catalunya, Sagrada Familia, La Rambla etc.). The train station is also just a block away which makes it very easy to get to and from the airport. Currently the hotel is being renovated and there are scaffoldings all around the building but I did not notice any noise early in the morning or at night so it was not a problem. I would definitely stay at this hotel again.

Friendly staff, great location. Very comfortable for three of us. We stayed there for three nights and really were able to relax. We had a lot of rain so we did spend more time than usual in the hotel. may daughter loved the free internet access in the lobby and my husband and I sat and had a glass of wine. Nothing really fancy but as hotels go in Europe it was lovely and spacious. We could walk everywhere. I would stay there again. it's not cheap and we stayed in a nice hostel our last two nights but we were never in the room and it was small. Depends what you want.

Just a couple of blocks away from Plaza Cataluyna which was very convenient yet not being so close to La Rambla made the area more quiet and relaxing. The hotel is very clean and comfortable. Beds were OK. The rooftop deck is a peaceful spot with nice views of the city. The small pool is just enough to cool off on a hot summer day. The mini-bar in the room had nice cool drinks that were included in the price. No snacks though. The hotel staff was very accommodating to call in a cab quickly for us.

We stayed in Barcelona for 2 days before our cruise and 1 day after our return. We chose the AC Diplomat for all 3 nights. We were very pleased with the location, close to the main Plazas and we could easily walk to dinner and sightseeing. Hotel had full size hair dryer, and many personal care items. Friendly. Very helpful and many English speaking employees.

Good hotel aimed mostly at business travelers. The front desk was friendly and the location is walking distance to most tourist destinations. Walking to the beach is a little long. Rooms are clean and comfortable, but a little dark. Balcony views from the back side are nothing special. Rooftop is great with a very small pool.

There are so many hotels in Barcelona that it is very easy to find anything you like; but it's also easy to make a mistake. We took a chance with this hotel and have absolutely no regrets. Perfect location; walking distance to everything important, yet on a quiet street away from the hustle and bustle of La Rambla. Nicely appointed hotel. Rooms big enough. Super clean. Good service. Free wiFi in the lobby and for pay in the rooms. If back in Barcelona would absolutely come back to the same place.

The hotel was central to everything! Large room for a European hotel. Beautiful marble bathroom. Very clean. Beautiful rooftop view of the city. I would definitely stay there again.
