About AC Hotel Barcelona Forum by Marriott


High on the wow factor, this designer hotel sits between the city of Barcelona and the glimmering waters of the Mediterranean. Across from the shops and convention areas of Diagonal Mal, this sleek and shiny hotel has both the beach and the city at its beckoning. The AC Hotel Barcelona Forum by Marriott is ultra modern in every respect and offers extensive business-related facilities, including a hi-tech business center. Rooms and suites are similarly slick, many offering expansive views over the Mediterranean. These views can also be had from the pool and sun deck, a glamorous venue where basking and bathing must be done with designer accessories. Guests will enjoy a complimentary mini bar in each room. Restaurants and shops can be found on Diagonal Mal, but don't limit the evening to one location when the city and Las Ramblas are less than 10 minutes away.

short breack stay
breakfast, quiet surroundings, near to shopping centre
It is nice hotel for short stay, breakfast was very good. Staff was friendly,though we were in queue for while for checking in, they could be better prepared for rush time. Location quite remote from the city centre but tourist bus stop just around the corner which was very convenient. Metro station in 10 minutes walking. Nice mall across the road,with a lot of places for dining. Not as expensive as in the city and with better quality. We loved korean & japaneese restaurant.

The stay was pleasant, rooms were comfortable, clean, nicely designed. Roof pool was nice, but small though. Wifi available in hotel lobby. Hotel is a bit far from central attractions, but just next to beach.

Convenient for the purpose of a business center
Friendly staff, cleanliness and confortable room.
The hotel has very important faults: location (it is not close to the city center or the best beaches and the public transport is not very close), there is no free internet in the rooms and there is no safe in theroom. If you need to keep anything in the safe you have to take it to the reception.

Easy transport, charged wifi & drinking water
Close to subway, large bathroom, nice ocean view
Kind of convenient. But free wifi only at the lobby is unpleasant. Wifi in room is charged and not much faster than at the lobby. All stuff in mini bar are charged with no free drinking water. Other things are at Marriott's standard.
