              6.2

              Free fresh OJ available in the lobby during the AM.

              The sheets were rough. Noisy right after 9AM. No face towels in the room. Water leaking from the shower due glass partition wasn't blocking the water from flowing to the floor.

            • Couple
              10.0

              The hotel was located in a great area one block over from Passeig de Gracia which is full of shops and if you continue down this road you get to the city centre in just about a 10 minute walk. It is a very clean and well designed hotel. The room was very spacious with a great bathroom and it had a balcony with a view to the city towards the sea. I will definitely stay there again!

            • Older travelers
              7.8

              The location was excellent. The views were nice and the roof top terrace was nice as well. I liked the complimentary coffee

              I did not like that the complimentary coffee ended at 7:30.

              Good location, easy to walk to shopping, eating and site seeing. Staff very friendly and helpful.

            • Couple
              9.2

              Ac Diplomatic was in a great location with great staff – all very helpful and requests were attended to. The mini bar was also free – yes free and got restocked daily. Highly recommended!

              The only thing that we didnt like was that there was no temperature control in the room. The room temperature was controlled from a central system within the hotel. The room was quite warm and made sleeping a little uncomfortable.

            • Couple
              10.0

              We had an excellent stay: The hotel was very luxurious and clean, the room was big and not too cold/warm, the staff were friendly and helpful. The location is perfect if you want peace and quiet (thus to stay off the busy streets of La Rambla) close to several metro stations, cafes, restaurants etc. We would very much recommend this hotel!

              Apparently there was a church situated fairly close to the hotel and the church bell struck every hour, which I found a bit disturbing at first; however, my fiancé wasn't bothered by the sound at all, and I got used to it after a couple of nights as well. The hotel breakfast was very expensive - I would recommend eating at one of the small and very nice cafes just around the corner!

              Location

              No locker in room, poor parking facility, no customer service

            • Older travelers
              5.4

              The location was good.

              The hotel service was not good. There is no ice machine, and it cost 4 euro to ask for it through room service. The bathroom is too small and no room for two people to use it at the same time. The room temp. can not be adjusted and so hot.

            • Older travelers
              8.2

              Location, Comfort, close to La Rambla and all the excitement. Very clean and with all the amenities a traveller may require. Also, very quiet

              I would have preferred a better view from my room, also, internet access in the room woud have been very handy

              Room, breakfast, rooftop, design

              Noise from visitors and cleaning staff in hallway.

            • Family with children
              8.2

              We stayed for 7 nights in ac Diplomatic hotel, it was a great experience, mini bar contents are free and refilled everyday, internet access is free in the lobby, room is fairly large and the staff is very friendly. Needless to mention that the location is very good as well.

            • Family with children
              10.0

              The fact that we could have breakfast right in the hotel.

            • Couple
              8.2

              Nice big clean rooms. Only problem was we were a couple and the king sized bed was made by pushing two doubles together. Huge bathroom, wood floors, nice big windows. A nice room to come back to after a long day exploring barcelona. Only problem was no balcony and windows aren't really designed to be opened. Hotel design feels very sixties, like stepping into a Madmen episode. Nice bar and lobby area with plenty of room for chilling out. Quiet at night, good for sleeping or working in the room for a business traveler. A bit of a walk to old city and Las Ramblas, but this was perfect for us. Good for travelers with kids / business travelers or leisure travlelers who want to get their sleep and need nice, comfortable quiet room to retreat to at night. Service by staff was excellent.

              Can't get regular "big" bottles of water from room service. Charge you 3 euro for ridiculous glass designer bottles that can't be resealed. Also - no bell service after midnight. We had a flight at 4am, and with a lot of luggage, could have used some help.

              I arrived at the hotel after a very early start from the uk and a long day working in Barcelona. I was kept waiting for 15-20 minutes while they searched for my booking, at least 5 other people checked in while I was waiting. I was told that they could not find my booking and they were full. They did offer to book a room at another hotel and organise a taxi to take me there but I was so tired and annoyed (the booking was made almost a month in advance) that I insisted they found a room for me and they did, so not full after all. Not impressed.

              The hotel location is excellent, nearby the city center and some popular tourist attractions.

              The rooms were very noisy, any noise from the corridors could be heard. Staff was very friendly after a night with noisy people in the corridor, they offered to change rooms. We accepted, however the noise isolation did not improve. This is unfortunate for a Marriott hotel.
