Stayed here for 6 nights visiting an event in the forum that is next to the hotel. The rooms (standard) were spacious and modern but some wear and tear was clearly appearing at multiple place in the rooms. The room was very clean. The room was however missing a few items like coffee machine and ironing machine that you can...

Thank you for posting this review and sharing your feedback on what appears to have not met your expectations. According to our records we did not have problems with our air conditioning. We would remiss, however, if we don´t mention that our hotel has a central cooling/ heating system and we would like to apologize for any inconveniences that you...

The room was clean and very comfortable. Located next to the Diagonal Mall, plenty of restaurants within walking distance. Short cab ride to the downtown area. The staff was very friendly and helpful, with recommendations and advice.

We had a great stay at this hotel. Very clean and spacious rooms. The breakfast buffet had plenty to choose from. Beautiful views, great food and we had the best Sangrias and Mojitos from Jose Pozo. Great location, short walk to Metro and a taxi pick up in front of hotel. The mall is across the street, perfect to pick...

Our experience was enhanced by the excellent service from Toni the bartender on the magnificent 13th floor lounge. His Sangreas and mohitos were perfection and his knowledge of his city was wonderful. We thank him for his excellent service and personality. Our front desk service was exceptional as well and all provided smiles and fabulous service.

This hotel is probably ok if you are on a business trip and staying here one, maximum two nights, paied by your company, but not longer. Everything is quite expensiv for what you get, hotelroom, food and drinks and every little extra will be charged as wifi and parking. For being not in the city center, one could expect this...

Thank you for your comments! We regret you stay was not entirely satisfactory but we can assure the prices are set acccording the current ones in the market. However, even we have a lot of business guests coming, we have also lots of facilities for families and those leisure guests who want to come just for relax, like family rooms...

This is our second stay at the AC Marriott Hotel and Restaurant. We are here waiting to board the World's Largest Cruise Ship "Harmony of the Sea" for its Transatlantic voyage and entry into United States service. So it is only reasonable that we again stay at what I believe is one of the best Hotels and Restaurants in Barcelona!!...

If you need to find an excellent hotel for business or pleasure you should look no further than the AC Forum in Barcelona. It's close to both the business area and main city. The hotel is stylish and offers great value for money without being in anyway detached from the most important aspect - customer service.

Seems as if all room types here are suite size. They are extremely comfortable and the beds are massive, king size beds instead of queens. I really enjoyed the location of the hotel as well. Would definitely stay here again.

I must admit, although some risk averse aspect of my personality likes the predictability of a four-star chain hotel like Marriot, there is a part of me that wants to be embedded in the guts of a city. My window ajar and the sounds of cafes and bars late at night, a lover's tiff over cobbled streets... the burble of...

Hotel is really nice and modern, attached to the forum convention centre. Very close to the beach, has a rooftop pool with a nice bar area. Rooms have no tea and coffee making facilities at all (which I read about before hand, and as a Brit this is disappointing) but I brought a travel kettle with me!! Hotel pumps in...
