ABaC Restaurant & Hotel
What We Love
- Away from the city center in Barcelona's posh Zona Alta neighborhood
- The gorgeous building is a protected architectural monument and once housed the US consulate
- Spain’s youngest Michelin-starred chef is at the helm of the on-site, double-starred restaurant
- The interiors mix glamour and good taste
- Breakfast on the quiet patio in the landscaped gardens
- An exclusive and romantic spa designed for two
- Close to the subway and minutes from Plaça de Catalunya
What To Know
- Good for foodies and romance-seeking couples; it is about a 15-minute metro ride to the city center
- A city tax of approximately $3 per person, per night, will be collected by the hotel at checkout
- The quality of the rooms and the restaurant is reflected in the prices
- Unless your children enjoy being little adults, this is not a good hotel for families
- Great for travelers seeking privacy and seclusion
- Don't come here with a car: You'll get lost and it will sit in the expensive ($54 per car, per day) garage
- The concierge can organize a segway tour of Barcelona's Gothic quarter
- Free WiFi
- Handicap Accessible
- Parking On Site

How to Get There
After being in Barcelona for several times, staying at ABaC hotel was by far the best hotel experience I've ever had in the city.
The Hotel is perfectly connected with the city centre. The metro stops right in front of the hotel and with a max 10 mins ride and only 5 stops you can get to Gracia and plaza Catalunya.
The rooms are much more spatious compared to 5* hotels in Barcelona and the ABaC hotel has a nice little garden surrounded by trees which gives to every room a very relaxing view.
The interior design is very accurate and modern, favouring a very comfortable stay also for longer periods. Also bathrooms are designed to be relaxing but at the same time very practical.
The rooms are equipped with coffee machine, tea boiler, sat TV with all the main channels in every language and a bluetooth loudspeaker for listening to music.
The staff speaks very well all the main european languages and is always ready to help with any need that a guest might have (from revervation in restaurants, to extra services). Furthermore, the room is always in perfect conditions thanks to the perfect job done by cleaners. You don't see them around and the cleaning service never bothers, but they are always present, morning, day and eve (turndown service)
Special mention goes to the really delightful breakfast with premium ingredients and perfect service thanks to very experienced and empathetic personnel.
I really wanted to rate this 5, but some nagging details prevented me from doing so. That’s a shame because it is a very nice place and certainly expensive enough.
Our penthouse room was spacious and provided an outstanding roof top terrace to enjoy breakfast or wine at the end of the day. Staff was super helpful, friendly and tried very hard to please. Check in takes a bit of time if you arrive at the same time as others. The restaurant on site was a fabulous experience - reviewed separately.
What we continued to notice were the little things. The faucet handles were loose on the bathroom sink. One door handle to the roof terrace was falling apart, no instructions for the complicated lighting system (which we figured out after a day), worn furniture and scuffed floors, and a confusing terrace door system that allows the top of the doors to fall partially into the room. This last item surprised the crap out of us as we thought it was falling out of the frame onto us. More instruction at check in or written placards would have made some of these moot points. If these details had been attended to, this would have been a solid 5 rating.
The neighborhood is quiet so if you want a nice place out of the city with a master culinary restaurant on site, this is the place. Cheers
Amazing hotel, so beautiful and so friendly staff. They will take care of you like a king and queen. Really nice spa and all the services you can think of. The restaurant is fantastic and to visit this place is a must.
