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

This place was a real gem - the staff are fantastic, the rooms are stunning with automatic blinds, crazy comfy beds, a lush spa area, a stunning terrace and a fab restaurant! Can’t fault it!!! We spent our honeymoon here

Amazing value for money

We stayed for three nights in a suite and had the dining package including 3star abac and 1star angel.

The suite was beautiful, the 30 courses of food over two nights was incredible

We cannot get over how inexpensive it all was - even the wine flight each night was reasonably priced

Whilst the hotel is really a taxi Into the ramblas and active part of the city - budget €40 a day for that, it was incredible.

We normally stay at hotel arts but never again

Congratulations.

Very unique and nice!

Forgot to review ABAC last year. My wife and I stayed there for 5 nights and truly loved the place. It is a unique hotel experience. Very private and away from the hustle and bustle of Barcelona. We would be thrilled to stay with them again. Wish we had booked a room with a balcony. Regardless our room was fantastic.

Perfect!

Such an amazing hotel. The best hotel we have ever stayed in. As soon as we got there the staff were extremely friendly in getting us settled in to our rooms. We had a tour around the hotel were we got to also see the spa area. Such lovely and modern rooms, it almost has a futuristic vibe to it with the glass elevator and open views.

Also located in a lovely area, quite a lot of restaurants near by and the metro just outside. The beds were unbelievably comfy if we didn't have so much to do in the city we would have loved to have just stayed in the room all day and enjoyed the rooms comforts. The television was a massive added bonus absolutely huge! Amazing! The bathroom was beautiful a rainfall shower in the centre and a jet tub. Lovely added extras like chocolates on the pillows once we got back to the room.

Wish we didn't have to leave! Can definately say we will be returning soon!

Small Luxury Hotel
Reviewed 4 months ago

This is a small (only 15 rooms) modern hotel in a good location. Originally it was a private residence and therefore doesn't flow like hotel should, I suppose you could call it quirky!
Our suite was large, very comfortable and spotlessly clean with a lovely bathroom.
The pool and spa was very pleasant for a small hotel.
There was an underground car park which was very handy as it would have been very difficult to park nearby.

Unfortunately we found the staff to be rather surly, a little bit like they were doing you a favour!

We stayed four nights and on one of the nights we dined in the ABaC's 2 Michelin Star Restaurant (now 3 star) and had the 18 course tasting menu.
The meal was very good but unfortunately the restaurant lacked atmosphere due to other guests spending most of the evening starring at their iPhones!
Again the staff didn't smile and came across rather cold!

We arrived the day after the Catalan regional election and the following day Barcelona was on strike, so perhaps this may have an impact on the staff.
