“Watch out for other surcharges and taxes. Lifts were unpredictable”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 May 2014

We just returned from Barcelona in late April 2014. Booked this hotel through booking .com. Situation of this hotel is not centrally, yet communication to center of city was good. Few small restaurants were around. The hotel is clean. Breakfast from ground floor restaurant were basic buffet type. We had a room with double bed on 7th floor. Found the lifts sometimes were not working properly. We used the stairs instead.

Room Tip: Watch out for other surcharges and taxes. Lifts were unpredictable

I stayed here for 10 days in January 2014 and would recommend to anyone. The service was excellent, the only fault was the laundry lost one of my shirts, but it was mostly my fault. All front desk staff were extremely helpful. The room was very large by European standards especially for a single traveler, with a queen size bed. Very comfortable, Excellent housekeeping. Excellent heat/air conditioning. Room safe but did not work. Minibar was convenient and very reasonable. Computer staying at front desk was good with free printer, and hotel WiFi was good. I avoided the hotel restaurant as it did not look good to me at all and was never busy, mostly deserted, never a good sign. Lots of excellent restaurants, bakeries, and shops within walking distance. Very good access to the excellent bus system and close enough to walk to three different Metro stations, but each station is probably a quarter mile away, so it is worth it to figure out the bus system. Taxi stand right in front of the hotel. I got a great value rate online in the off-season, but would stay again anytime in beautiful Barcelona.

Room Tip: I had a room facing a inner courtyard, was very quiet if that matters. All rooms modern.

Stayed here for 4 nights in March 2014 on a combined business trip and weekend getaway. The hotel's location is OK, not really close to anything, but only 5-10 minutes walk to subway stations. The room was average size and the bed comfortable, but a little hard (which is good for someone with an aching back).

The room was clean, but it was obvious that the latest round of renovations wasn't recently. The bathroom was clean, but the shower curtain had small mold stains on it, and the toilet paper holder was broken and had obviously been that way for a very long time. The paint in the ceiling was slightly peeling, too. None of this was really bad, but it wasn't very good either.

I was less impressed by the breakfast. The buffet was a little thin, the automat coffee was nothing to write home about, and the breakfast as a whole was below standard. Again not much, but clearly below.

The staff was very friendly and accommodating and as a low-price option while staying in a big city it would be OK, but I will choose another hotel the next time I go to Barcelona.

On a girl's trip to Barcelona we stayed at this nice hotel. I didn't have anything bad to say about it. The rooms were spotless, the breakfast was good, and the sangria in the restaurant is amazing. We enjoyed this beautiful city and hotel. Our stay was in Sept 2011.

We stayed at AB Vidalomat during our recent stay in Barcelona in February 2014. This was our second stay at AB Vidalomat and both times we enjoyed our stay. The hotel is convenient to Estacio de Sants (OR Sants Estacio) which takes you to the airport. Sants Estacio is a main hub to the rest of the metro. The hotel is about a 10 minute walk to Sants Estacio. This is a simple walk and if your not up for at least a 10 minute walk, a vacation to Europe is probably not for you. The hotel feels safe, clean, and comfortable. Both times, we had a special room request and AB Viladomat kindly accommodated us both times. It seems that the front desk are all at least bilingual. The staff was friendly and helpful even showing us places in the city on a map. We utilized the downstairs restaurant only for late night one night and it was what we expected: quick and easy. We didn't expect a 5 star experience at the hotel restaurant, we saved that expectation for local restaurants like La Forquilla! We enjoy immersing ourselves in the city we are visiting, not expecting a worldly experience in a hotel restaurant (like some of the other reviewers). Overall, AB Viladomat was a lovely experience that facilitated a wonderful vacation!

Just one night I stayed there.
Room is huge enough.
Hair dryer didn't work.
Someone's hair wax was in a trash can.
It takes 10min from Metro Station & Aerobus stop.
Wifi worked well with iPhone, but iPad didn't work even with right log in name & password.
Wifi instruction in a room was only Spanish.

My wife and i took a trip to Barcelona and book this hotel based on reviews and got disappointed. Not so clean room, not the best location, and the cafeteria service was not the best. What i mean is that you can stay in much better place with the same money you pay here in other place. There are much better places around it with the same amount.

Room Tip: Do not book a room that looks to the street, Try to get at list something in 4-5 floor
