Located in the new trade fair area of Barcelona, AC Som is 200m away from Fira 2 and few minutes away from El Prat airport.
The hotel is well connected with the centre of Barcelona and Plaza España.
"Excellent and highly recommended "
Staffs working at this hotel deserve 5 star rating , very helpful and attentive. The hotel is modern . Nice modern room and bathroom (a bit small in size). The bathroom was stocked with very good collection of toiletries. Breakfast was delicious. Though the hotel is not located in city centre the connectivity was excellent. The location was very good for airport I.e. It's just 20 mins via bus and monsterrat ( there were frequent direct trains). Gym had few useful machines however there was no space to workout.
"City trip Barcelona"
We arrived quite early in the morning (8h30) and after the check-in we got our key for the room. Ninth floor with a nice view over the industrial park. Rooms are sufficient for a 2 night-stay, good bed, clean sheets, nice bathtub with shower-head. TV has a few English, German and Italian channels as well. The hotel has a tight modern design and is well maintained. Staff is extremely friendly and helpful in many ways. Thanks Ainara for your fine explanation about the subway. We managed to hop on and of as we lived in Barca for many years :-) Breakfast is more than ok !! The only remark I can make ... the hotel is a little out of the center of town but with bus 79 (stop is just around the corner) you can go to the Plaça Espanya in no time and start your visits from here. I you have a late night flight the hotel has, free of charge, a place were you can put your baggage till you leave. To get back to the airport ask for the subway station Fira-Europa, it's a 15 min walk from the hotel and goes straight to the airport. (check your flight in advance because there are 2 terminals !).
"Smarter on the inside than the outside"
Whilst arguably a bit of an eyesore from the outside, the interior of the hotel is well appointed and the staff attentive and friendly. The rooms are well appointed, clean and in good repair. The breakfast provides plenty of choice and is well worth the charge/extra. More suited to business visitors, but ideally located for the more adventurous explorers too, who don't want to be in the middle of the city.
"Great Location Away from the Crowd"
The rooms are small but sufficient with all the marriott amenities. The restaurant offers selection of hot and cold breakfast. Very close to Gran Via Mall. There are a lot of restaurants nearby including a Catalan restaurant.
"Improvised visit to beautiful Barcelona!"
The hotel was great! Walking distance to the metro. Within 20 min including the walking to the metro you are in plaza espana. Awesome breakfast and the amenities of the hotel were excellent! They have a bar downstairs at the lobby. There is a quick mart very close for any little thing You may need. There is little bar almost beside the hotel.
