Review AC Sants Hotel, Barcelona

Page Content

AC Sants Hotel
AC Sants Hotel, Barcelona is located less than a minute's walk from Barcelona Sants station - Barcelona's largest train station. Of all of the large hotels based on Plaza Sants, it is one of the smaller and more intimate options - with only 78 rooms. Its style is also more modern and 'boutique' than some of its competitors. However, it also has fewer facilities - there are no meeting rooms or business centre in the hotel.

The hotel's exterior is chic, with a large brown wall jutting out to a pyramid position. The hotel's lobby area is cast in a low lighting, creating a cosy feel to the area. The front desk sits to the left area of the lobby, behind a seating area. A large cream leather couch sits alongside a tube light that is twisted and turned into a writhing ball. A bar area to the right of the lobby is filled with individual leather seats and low black coffee tables.

The hotel's situation is particularly convenient for travellers due to its location close to the station. For tourists, it is a Metro journey from the touristic centre.
