Accommodation Review: AC Hotel Som (Barcelona)

Barcelona: AC Hotel Som

AC Hotel Som

The Good:

  • New, modern hotel with fitness facility
  • Close to public transit (5-10 minute walk)
  • Huge shopping complex and supermarket nearby

The Bad:

  • Quite far from city centre
  • Staff wasn’t very friendly
  • Marriott Rewards member benefits (Silver, Gold and Platinum level) are not recognized at AC Hotels in Europe

The Verdict:

This hotel is not conveniently located for anyone looking to easily explore Barcelona. We booked the last two nights of our stay there, but had already done most of our exploring from a more central location (Airbnb). It is likely better suited as a business traveller hotel. We booked our room using Steven’s Marriott Rewards points, but current rates posted (as of November 2014) are roughly $95 CDN/night.
