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...

This is the perfect business hotel. Everything you need for work and pleasure. Highly recommended but doesn't come with coffee in the room and limited options. Also doesn't have a sauna as it seems it was removed and replaced with a bar.

We stayed here for a week. The hotel was very clean, very modern. The room was a little small (room 1127) but it did the trick. Hotel staff are ALL extremely nice and helpful and seem to be happy to be there which is nice. The staff does make this hotel worth it. We loved Jose and Alexandro in the...

Very modern, nice hotel for a business trip into that area of Barcelona ideal. 13th floor pool and bar terrace are great. Staff was very nice and supportive. Why checkout is so complicated I will never understand, may be worthwhile to have somebody double check the process.

Overall a nice stay, it bit out of the way from the City Centre. I was attending a conference at the Congress Center and was staying at AC Barcelona. The Congress Center is just behind the hotel, a five minute walk so it was very convenient. The room was comfortable, huge and had the view facing Congress Center. Rates included...
