Reviewed 22 May 2014 via mobile

Stayed here for 3 nights with my friends. Hotel is nice, clean and good value for money. It's also close to the airport which was a bonus.

The bad thing about it is that it's slightly out of town so we had to get buses/metro into town where all the fun was. The rooms were a bit too dark for my liking. The bathroom was ok. The breakfast was a bit overpriced.

Everytime you step out of the hotel you're greeted with the sewage smell which was quite off putting and I know it's not the hotels fault as the smell was quite widespread across the area.

If you want peace and quiet this is the best place to stay but if you're looking for action this isn't the place, the hotel lacks that kind of vibe.

Stayed: May 2014, travelled with friends

The Hotel is not in the center of Barcelona, it is about 4km, but it is great choice. You can get to the city center by underground in 5 minutes it is just 1 or 2 stops from Plaza de Catalunya.
Really nice, clean, modern, convenient, hotel. Breakfast is very good.

On May 9th at 7:03 am get my purse stollen, while having breakfast, the hotel had tape of the man which they did not hand over to the police. The police report was done, I had to go to the American Consulate to get an emergency passport. I WOULD NOT STAY AT THIS HOTEL!!! The attitude was extremely limited, police was not called to go to the hotel

Room Tip: Be aware of robbing inside the hotel!!!

Dear guest,

We were in a shock for the unusual episode you've lived.

Our front desk manager went personally, with you to the police station to make the report, she also accompanied you to the consulate and pay for your emergency passport, and took you back to the Hotel.

From the very beginning we kept in touch with the police, and we have inmediately provided them the security images.

We always take care and do our best with our guests.

Kind regards,

Although not in the tourist centre of Barcelona, this is a great choice if you are a business person or a tourist looking for a clean, modern, reasonably priced hotel in Barcelona. A quick 3 euro bus ride from the airport or 30 euro taxi trip from the airport, this hotel is located in a residential/business district outside of the city. There is an awesome mall with restaurants and movie theatre across the street as well as a metro stop which can get you linked in to all of the tourist sights in Barcelona. Rooms are clean, modern and equipped with mini fridges. Decent size for Europe. Full buffet breakfast costs an additional 16 euro but is well worth it.

Room Tip: Ask for corner room or one of top floors.

We ended up at this hotel during our recent trip to Barcelona. It was a decent hotel, quite clean and well maintained. The service staff were very attentive and helpful. Modern design and very functional. The hotel isn't really in the center of Barcelona so you will have to take cabs, the surroundings don't really feel "spanish" as it's quite business park chic, but again clean+safe+cheap, it will be easier for you to hail a cab yourself than to order a cab at the front desk. We were in a non-smoking room but could smell smoke from other rooms.

Dear reviewer,

Thanks so much for sharing your experience at the AC SOM by Marriott.

We are glad you have enjoyed your stay and find us clean and our staff helpfull. We are placed in, on your own words, "a safety and clean" neightbour, with one of the biggest and nicest shopping moll, almost in front of the Hotel. And not only with a cab stop in front of our door, but also quite close you can find subway station (Ildefons Cerda) an bus stops, that takes you in about, 10 to 20 min, to the city center. Also you can take a local bus (46) that takes you to both terminals of the Airport (2€)

Hope we can welcome you back soon for your next visit to the splendid city of Barcelona.

Kind regards,

I was arriving late at the Barcelona airport and I decided to stay in a local hotel. I chose AC Som and it was fine.
Price was reasonable for the purpose of arriving late and leaving early. I suppose prices maybe quite different if there are activities in the nearby FIRA so check this carefully.
Room space was adequate, but not much to spare. Bathroom was also OK although some of the design makes you wonder. Bathtub is sank on the floor and while not too deep it is dangerous as you can slip when entering. The shower splashes on the floor and water accumulates on the back of the tub. Like in most hotels, you have to think how to turn the water on without getting the first cold water on.
The parking is extra (my wife came to pick me up). We were carrying a few extra things so we decided to park inside instead of leaving the car outside and risk a break in. We have a large car and it was very challenging getting around the corners. I was lucky there were a few empty places because if not I am not sure I would have managed to get in or out.

We hope we can welcome you back soon on your next visit to Barcelona.

Stayed there for a week in March. Walking distance from the Fira Congress Centre and shopping mall. Breakfast was good. Room was clean. Bed was comfy. It was also affordable. Would recommend if you have to be near the Fira Centre.
