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
- Parking On Site

How to Get There
Its a gorgeous smaller hotel, right in the Sarria-Sant Gervasi that we really liked. From the start, reception staff were warm and inviting, and very quick, and we were given an upgrade, thanks! Excellent location and facilities and service, made good use of the minibar in our room, the room was just gorgeous, all beige, pastels, very bright and inviting. Overall, total luxury at an affordable price.
For her birthday, I invited my girlfriend there...but it was also a gift for me :-) The experience is not limited to sit at the table and being served. You get to begin your journey in the kitchen and see where the magic gets done. And then, you go from surprise to surprise. I suggest the wine pairing for an augmented experience. We got wines from 1970 and tried also a Jerez 2 palmas. Of course it comes with a price, but once in a lifetime it totally worth it because we are not going to forget it. The service was excellent and we appreciated discussing with the people serving the delights. It is not stilted but rather cool and we had some good laugh and that is also very appreciable. All in all, an unforgettable experience full of incredible and rich tastes. We weren't hosted at the hotel.
We have chosen the Hotel because we wanted to dine in their Restaurant. ( see sep. review) and also we wanted not to be directly in the centre but with a good connection to it.
The Hotel has a good connection to a sub-way station as well as to bus stops incl. the hop on-hop off. It is not in the city centre but in a great small area with some Restaurants, Bars and Cafes and easy to get to the centre.
Also a little park is just beside the Hotel and our room, No. 821, did have a view towards it. The room was spacious and had a large bathroom with sep. shower.
The breakfast was included and the value for money was great. Just one small issue in regards to breakfast, the service was slow.
We would stay there again.
I got the gourmet package for a night in this fabulous hotel. The service was excellent, room was fantastic, and the food at AbaC was amazing. I recommend doing a massage in their spa, it is a great way to relax and chill out before the long dinner.
The only issue I had with my room was late night noise from some kitchen maintenance downstairs. This needs to be addressed, otherwise, it was almost perfect.
I always choose this hotel when I visit Barcelona. It is a luxury boutique hotel, offering a three-Michelin star restaurant which alone is worth the travel.
The hotel is enclosed in a private property only accessible for guests, which allows for a private, exclusive feeling.
Rooms are modern and bright. The penthouse is nice, featuring a very spacious outdoor terrace with a private whirlpool which makes a bit of a worn impression though.
The location within the city is rather noisy, which you do not hear within your room, though, but on the terrace. I therefore prefer the suites which are more spacious inside and also seem lees "used" than the penthouse. The furniture in some rooms really needs to be replaced.
One tricky issue: the LED lighting in the rooms sometimes leads to cracking noises, probably due to the heat-related expansion of some materials, so if you're sensitive to that, don't worry, it will stop some minutes after the lights were switched off and have cooled down.
Water pressure in the shower of the penthouse was annoyingly low.
Expect for some these minor flaws, I'll surely return.
