We spent two nights here and the staff were super helpful in terms of how to use the subway, where to go, and how to get to the hotspots. However, we had a problem with the noise. Whenever the neighbors' doors closed in the morning, the doors would slam shut and we would wake up. This was our only complaint....

The hotel checked many boxes for us as a couple traveling to Barcelona for the first time: close to the coast, beautiful view of the ocean from our windows, close to shopping mall area with many choices of food, close to Metro station- take L4 from Maresme Forum and it was about 30 minutes to center of town, big room...

Staff very cold, not helpful and rude. The rooms are an absolute joke! Tiny rooms with a very claustrophobic feel. Noisy surroundings. Business district, not the charm of Barcelona. Better food options across the street, you can find great small restaurants.

Slowest check in and check out ever Location is correct because there is the shopping mall next to the hotel but for the center and all the touristic attraction its very far. Its good for 2 3 nights for business in the hotel but foe leisure a more central hotel is better. Otherwise food is good Ps: the housekeeping didnt...

Great hotel, clean rooms which are every day serviced. Complementary water on the room however just provided once per stay. Breakfast is quite expensive. Wifi is fast and reliable. Nice bar at the 13th floor serving drinks and snacks.

Hotel itself works fine - great view from the pool, nice restaurant and breakfast buffet, bar area very modern. The rooms are very small, not much space to leave bags, etc and it feels very cramped in. Everything is modern and works, but no tea/coffee facilities in room. Location of the hotel is very bad - it is the conference...

I stayed at the AC Forum for 5 nights. It was a very good experience. As others noted the rooms are small (its europe!) but they were clean and the staff was good. They all spoke several languages and really tried to help with directions and recommendations of things to do. I would definitely return. Everyone must also go to...

Was at a congress and was booked into hotel by work. First time in a AC hotel and was suitably impressed. Clean rooms, friendly staff but rooms are a bit cramped and no real desk. Would stay again and assume the rest of the chain are as good
