AB Viladomat Hotel is located a five minute walk from Sants Estacio train station. This makes travel to and from Barcelona Airport very simple. This train station is also the home of the hotel's nearest Metro link. This ensures that most of Barcelona is easily accessible via the underground system.
The hotel is approximately ten minutes walk from Gran Via Corts Catalanes. Where Calle Viladomat meets this major road, it is possible to find Casa Golferichs. This is a Gaudí-esque building, designed by one of his followers. It is a civic centre, but the exterior alone is worth a look - wooden arches, colourful tiles and a palm tree make it stand out from the more modern buildings on the strip.
The hotel is located a fifteen minute walk from Plaza Espanya. This is the home of the Fira de Barcelona conference centre. Many guests of the hotel are likely to be attending conventions at the centre.
Any necessary amenities that you will not be able to find in close proximity of the centre will be available on Gran Via Corts Catalanes. These include banks, pharmacies, internet cafes, bureaus de change and supermarkets.

Private transfer (advanced reservation required)
With a private transfer service the driver will be waiting for you at your arrivals gate. He will have a board or a sign with your name on it so that you can easily identify him. The driver will help you with your bags to the vehicle and then drive you to your hotel.
