ABaC Barcelona Hotel

Reviewed 20 October 2013

A very nice 4 night stay here. Situated away from the main downtown areas near where the tram stars its climb to Tibidabo. Opposite taxi ranks, bus stops and underground links so travel easy. 2euro gets you a tube ride to central Barcelona, or about 8 or 9 euro by taxi. You can hop on/ off
the open top tourist bus which is a great way to get a perspective of the city's layout.
We stayed in the penthouse which was fun. You have to go through the kitchen to take the direct
route to the restaurant which affords a glimpse of the smooth running professionalism of the chefs, cooks and staff. No shouting here! We had the very simple continental breakfast served by
a charming lady who was very kind to us, and the receptionists, particularly Paloma were friendly and helpful with recommendations and bookings of various museums etc.
Just great

Room Tip: Our penthouse room was very quiet - even the A/C was inaudible. The bed was superb and most comforta...

Rooms were large and modern. Staff very friendly and helpful. Beds are a little firm for my taste. Great coffee shop and bakery across the street. They would exchange Dollars for Euros at fair price with no service charge.

ABac Barcelona is a very modern hotel located a little outside of the crazy hustle and bustle of the city. The staff is great and the rooms are large and comfy. There is a wonderful bar and restaurant in ABaC for you to enjoy and head back upstairs.

This is the perfect place to stay if you want to go walk the Ramblas, but enjoy quiet most of the time

On a recent stay in Barcelona we had five very comfortable nights at the ABaC.
Its location is just far enough from the inner city of Barcelona its airport and cruise terminal for some real peace and quiet.
Our room was open to natural light with electric curtains,extremely comfortable, clean and quiet.
The free wifi was fast and easy to connect with.
The hotel is right on the underground rail line, on a red hop on/off bus stop and the yellow one as well and across the road from a frequently utilised taxi stand.
All the staff were extremely helpful and spoke good English
The concierge managed to get us tickets to an FC Barcelona game during our stay which was an experience in itself - not to be missed on any visit to Barcelona
There are many small cafes within walking distance as well as a small quiet park adjacent to the hotel itself.
The included breakfast was sufficient and tasty.
We are unable to comment on the restaurant or spa as we did not utilise either during our stay however the restaurant was busy on all nights during our stay.

I stayed at the ABaC for a week with my fiance. The ABaC was and is the most modern and amazing hotels I've ever stayed in, and I have stayed at some amazing places. There are only a few rooms, making this place very exclusive. From the moment you enter your room, you feel like royalty, with 2 huge flat screens, a massive couch, the most comfortable bed i have ever slept in and a bathroom that will impress the pickiest travelers. It is a stones throw form the metro making getting around Barcelona a breeze. I would not even think about staying anywhere else. And the restaurant is in my top 3.

We stayed for one night in a junior suite this summer. We knew the hotel from visiting their fantastic Michelin restaurant a few years back and were looking forward to a wonderful experience. Unfortunately, the restaurant is closed on Sundays, so we didn't get to enjoy it, but we were not disappointed with the rest of the hotel. The suite was 45 sqm of luxurious interior! The breakfast was as fantastic as expected (so was the room service). A quite expensive experience, but totally worth it - if not for the food or the interior, then maybe just to sleep in the best beds in Barcelona...

Room Tip: Try visiting when the restaurant is open. The dining experience will for sure enhance your stay.
