Everything a standard Marriott quality but hot water was very poor, hardly any pressure. Good breakfast though. Overall I would say it was ok. Due to location there's no parking at the hotel and a parking nearby was quite expensive, I believe circa 25 Euros for the night.

The location was good, the service was great the amenities are good but the reason that i couldn't give it 5 stars is that the AC was only heater with no cold sitting which is very weired for a big hotel under the marriott management , and needed more attention based on the price paid and the big name

Since my last stay the hotel has done some remodelling. The major change is to convert the 13th floor fitness room to a bar. From a bar perspective this add as natural meeting place to the hotel - however the fitness room is now a windowless room roughly 5*5 meters on the 3rd floor, packed with equipment.

The room was clean and very comfortable. Located next to the Diagonal Mall, plenty of restaurants within walking distance. Short cab ride to the downtown area. The staff was very friendly and helpful, with recommendations and advice.

Our experience was enhanced by the excellent service from Toni the bartender on the magnificent 13th floor lounge. His Sangreas and mohitos were perfection and his knowledge of his city was wonderful. We thank him for his excellent service and personality. Our front desk service was exceptional as well and all provided smiles and fabulous service.

If you need to find an excellent hotel for business or pleasure you should look no further than the AC Forum in Barcelona. It's close to both the business area and main city. The hotel is stylish and offers great value for money without being in anyway detached from the most important aspect - customer service.
