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.
"First time at AC "
Thanks to the good reviews and the rates hotel AC Som was offering I decided to book it for a quick weekend getaway in Barcelona. While AC Som is not in the city centre I found it to be close enough. With 20 min with direct bus L94 or 95 to plaza Cataluyna and different lines going to Plaza España running 24/7. From the airport you can take line 46 / N17 (late night) which stops 500m from the hotel. Same busstop to head to city center. Hotel itself is nice, found the room spacious modern and clean. The air vents could use some proper cleaning. Liked the AC "lounge" coffee/tea corner bar. Complementary for all guests . Gym was a bit on the small side but had some light dumbbells, bench cardio equipments and a multi function weight machine. For the joggers among us enjoyed my jogs around the area. Mount Jüic can be reached and surrounding is quite close by. Choose this AC too because just across it there is a very nice mall with a giant Carrefour (supermarket). Different dining options close by too.Found the staff to be fluent in English and professional. I'm really glad I decided to try an AC hotel, looking forward for many good stays at this European brand owned by Marriott.
"Good tactical stop"
All very good, no chills. Excellent staff, nice breakfast, more than acceptable rooms. Convenient and fairly priced. By chance, a huge team if UK bikers happened to make a quick stop at the hotel bar the night I spent there, quickly putting the staff to the test! Everyone seemed to be happy with the service, even though going from 2 thirsty customers to 20 is always a challenge for a single waiter! Recommended!
"AC Hotel Som"
A great easy and cheap stay. We came in late and wanted to stay as close to the airport as we could so we could go to sleep . Right on a subway line from the airport this was nice and convenient . No frills , but the basics of bed , personal bathroom and a non included breakfast . Staff was very friendly and helpful to us as out of Towners as well.
"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 !).
