“Fantastic Stay”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 May 2014

Truly relaxed and great staff - with Jordi's food, made an exellent weekend.
The area is a little in the back of Barcelona, but great to get away from the hectic center.
Just top nuch and I would recommend it at all times.

This luxury hotel in Barcelona is like an oasis of calm with first class, friendly service for the duration of the stay.
We booked the hotel because we wanted to eat in the restaurant. The service, the food, the atmosphere are first class. Considering the quality of room, service etc. this place is good value for money.

This was our fourth stay at ABaC, and this stay only confirmed why this is our favorite hotel in Barcelona (and possibly the world!)

We again stayed in the room on the top floor because we love the deck, the view and the hot tub after a long day of walking in the city. We had a remarkable lunch at the incredible restaurant on the first floor -- an experience not to be missed. They were filming B roll of Jordi Cruz, the Michelin starred chef, for his judging position on the Spanish version of Master Chef. The grounds are beautifully maintained and so peaceful away from the rush of the central city. Although the streets surrounding the hotel are reasonably busy, you don't hear a sound in your room.

But it is the staff of the hotel that really make this hotel extraordinary. They are attentive and personal. They arranged tickets for an FC Barcelona game at Camp Nou for us without any fuss (much simpler than us trying to do it from the US on short notice). They helped us figure timing and transportation for several of the things we were doing on this trip.

But our favorite staff member is the lovely woman who serves the fabulous breakfast in the morning. She has been there since our very first visit and she is just a delight! By your second breakfast, she knows your beverage choice and brings it to the table. She even sent us off to the airport with a bag of the amazing fresh baked pastries on our last morning. I feel dreadful that I do not remember her name, but it is that kind of person and personality that can make a wonderful hotel so memorable!

We will keep coming back to ABaC!

Room Tip: We love the Attic/Penthouse for the view, the large relaxing deck and the hot tub.

My husband and I spent a long weekend at this fantastic hotel and could not recommend it more. The meal we had in the restaurant was the best meal we have ever eaten. Absolutely superb!
The hotel is a little out of the centre, but very close to a tube stop, so this isn't a problem at all. Our room was fantastic. There was an extremely comfortable and spacious bed and we had modern furnishings throughout our suite.
My husband was involved in a road accident the evening before we were due to return home and I cannot thank the hotel staff enough for their help, thoughtfulness and kindness. They truly went out of their way to make things as easy as possible for me.

Absolutely fantastic stay at this beautiful and very stylish hotel. The room was one of the nicest we've ever stayed in, and although expensive it was worth it. Very warm welcome (and glass of cava) from the staff who cannot do enough for you.

The rooms are beautiful and have everything you could want - if you are into modern style and architecture then this is the place for you. Superb bed and bathroom and plenty gadgets to keep you happy!

We enjoyed lovely drinks and cheese on the terrace for a light lunch, before heading out for a stroll around the surrounding area which although not in the central tourist belt (this is a good thing!) is a lovely residential area. The metro is a few meters away and is very easy and cheap to use to transport you around Barcelona.

We enjoyed an hour in the small spa which was lovely and almost like your own private spa as no one else was in it. The heated beds are a must for weary tourist legs!

Dinner in the evening was absolutely superb, not to be missed.

Similarly breakfast in the morning was one of the best I've ever had, very high quality and local ingredients imaginatively served by a charming lady who looked after us so well.

Overall superb experience and a place I would love to return to.

If you are looking for the perfect boutique hotel to stay in, in Barcelona look no further. The only problem with this place is that the bed is cozy and amazing, it's hard to get up and get ready to tackle the city sights! Enjoy your stay.

Room Tip: Ask for the terrace.

My wife and I stayed here for a long weekend and the hotel is amazing, exactly how the website describes. It's very clean, we had a lovely room and, although slightly out of town, it's in a great location. Being slightly out of town allowed us to go for a really nice walk up the Tibidabo mountain (hill?) Which I think we'd have missed if we were in a more central location.

The service at the hotel was second to none. Greeted late when we arrived after midnight, with a glass of cava and the staff were immediately willing to show us the best locations to go in Barcelona. Also as we were staying for an anniversary, we chose to book a table at the hotel restaurant in advance (mainly because another review mentioned it was difficult to book in advance - thank you!) We had an awesome meal, 13 courses of some of the most amazing food ever, and the staff were brilliant all the way through, giving advice for wine and describing each course in English perfectly. We even had an additional course of chocolates and sweets that we definitely were not expecting.

Lastly, my wife was ill on our last night (not due to the hotel) and the staff in attendance (David and Paloma?) were brilliant - helping us get an earlier flight and being exceptionally understanding.

Despite the illness, we had a great time here and would highly recommend anyone consider this hotel. It's not cheap, but with every penny...
