“Beautiful”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 July 2014

.My partner and I arrived at the ABaC hotel looking forward to a fantastic holiday in this wonderful hotel. We weren't disappointed. It is truly amazing. Staff who are attentive without being pretentious. Our check in was a relaxing and very welcoming experience..Thankyou Christina for making us feel so special.. our room was beautiful with the most amazing Tv I have ever seen. We were greeted each morning by the lady serving breakfast (Pilar) I think was her name. Sooo friendly .We had the pleasure of eating in the restaurant on Tuesday evening. WHAT AN EXPERIENCE. The most spectacular food I have ever tasted. Thank you to (Mar) who waited on us the entire evening. The only down side and its a very small down side was the fact that I had booked us in for 4days with a continental breakfast. This meant for 4 mornings we had fruit,orange juice and a selection of breads. If we wanted cooked food it meant we paid another 31 euro each every day. A liitle steep. The hotel is very convenient to the tourist bus stop and also the tram which takes you up to the most amazing views over Barcelona. All in all we had the most relaxing break we could have wished for and hope to return, Thankyou team ABac.

My daughter and I only spent one night (sadly) at this marvelous gem of a hotel in Barcelona.
It is located in a lovely neighborhood; we were so pleased the moment our taxi pulled up and we discovered this perfect spot. As we had just flown in and it was a bit late, we immediately got seated in their smaller dining room and had a very special dinner. Most original food presentation and very tasty. Then we were escorted to our room, which was beautifully designed, immaculate, and very fashionable. I would love to design my own bathroom at home like this. Latest (it seemed to me) European modern elegant design, materials, great shower, beautiful sink, tub, etc. Just a lovely place. We also had a nice breakfast in a pretty enclosed garden in the morning. Want to go back!!

I spent one night (only unfortunately) at ABaC and it was a great experience. This small hotel has great rooms, services, and the quality of the food is outstanding. I did not have the opportunity to enjoy the restaurant because it was the weekly day close, but I experienced the room service with great aperitiv and snacks and breakfast in the morning.
The room is really nice with outstanding bathroom and high quality furnitures.
The personnel is keen to protect the privacy as well as the location and the way to access the hotel makes it a perfect choice for persons want to keep a low-profile and defend the its own privacy.
Service is accurate and gentle.
The only negative note is about the price that is in the high-range for such class of hotels.

this hotel when you arrive its in the best location, but it looks very much hidden behind a high fence, exclusive is the definitely the word. inside is perfection. the staff how ever are polite and highest service with out being snooty.
the famous chef Jordi cruz you will see sitting with guests, his food is the best you will ever try in your life.

the cost is totally within reach and so much worth every single penny. will i go back, too right i will
the best place to visit for a short break or long. the spa is award winning.

Room Tip: all are fantastic, although the penthouse is saw, but did not stay in, looks tremendous always booke...

I was taken here for my birthday recently as a surprise. The treat was the 16 course menus with the wine pairings and a night at the hotel. Wow.

The room was very well decorated with a separate bedroom, amazing bathroom with a giant tub and a phenomenal shower that was like standing in a hot rain storm. The bed was incredibly comfortable (especially after the 4 hour lunch) and the living room very comfortable. I loved the whole experience.

The hotel is in a very quiet posh neighbourhood with a trolley in front that runs up to the funicular railway to the top of Tibidabo. There are some fun bars near the top but very little else around though the Metro is close by.

This small boutique hotel was wonderful. From the minute we checked in, everyone made sure our stay was perfect. They made reservations of us at local restaurants, arranged tours and site seeing, and helped us as we checked out and discovered the rental car agency had no more cars even though we had a confirmation of reservation.. They went above and beyond to get us to our next location. The rooms were wonderful and very quiet and luxurious! The restaurant was fabulous and it was our highlight meal while in Barcelona. We are so happy we spent 5 days enjoying this hotel!

We stayed for just one night , wish so much we booked for longer . I can not recommend the hotel and restraunt more .
We had the grand ABaC , a 16 course meal , it was incredible , my taste buds were taken to places I have never experienced . The service is impecible ever thing is done to military precision in a very relaxed atmosphere . Be prepared to give the meal at least 4 hours , it will not be shorter but you will savour every minute
The bedrooms are very comfortable , with everything you could wish for .
Thank you Paul
