AC Barcelona Forum is located in the heart of Barcelona in a boosting business area, near the trade Forum area, the International Convention Centre and the fairground, 10 minutes away from downtown and 23 minutes from the Airport.
Metro station : 200m.
Bus stop : 2min away.
Arrived at Barcelona Airport and took a taxi to the Hotel (around 25 Euro or something) Its a bit west of the city centre, but only a couple minute walk from L4 Metro line which will get you right into the city centre and to all the main attractions. The beach is probably within a 10 minute walk, but I didn't go there my self. The pool on the roof is nice, but it's a bit windy which makes it chilly. It's also a bit small so on a busy day, there isn't many seats or places to lie down. As previously mentioned, the perfume in the lobby is quite strong, but there is complementary water and marshmallows when entering. Rooms were comfortable enough. Didn't notice anything bad about the beds or pillows. Staff were friendly, and happy to accomodate and help print things, etc.
The hotel is mostly nice, except for the reception being way too heavily perfumed and the Wi-Fi being slower than a dead snail. The location is far from downtown Barcelona, but close to a big shopping center and the beach.
"Hotel was averahe"
Beds and pillows uncomfortable ( the bed was hard the pillows soft) but the overall feeling and location was good . The hop on hop off busses went straight from hotel and the bar had lovely views for drinks buffet breakfast was ok
"Great 3 day business stay"
This is my second time at this hotel. Checking in and out is always a breeze - very courteous and pleasant experience. The rooms are nice - modern decor, all amenities in the washroom in case you forget something. Mini bars and flat screens. Nice 13th floor bar/snack restaurant and pool - Breakfast was also good...would like to have some more cheese options, and maybe some eggs, but otherwise fine. Gym is small but functional. Location is good - right by the beach, and 15 min cab ride to center of town. Tons of restaurants nearby - would return
"Med Beach Vacation: Impressive Service"
We have stayed at the Barcelona beach on previous trips to Europe, but tried this Marriott at the recommendation of family. We were quite impressed by the service. The rooms are spacious and comfortable, and the breakfast service was phenomenal. We were using the hotel as a gathering place for a large family group flying in from different US locations for a cruise, and we were very thankful for the help the hotel staff provided. There are lots of great places to eat nearby, and there is a modern shopping mall across the street. We'll be back.
