Stayed here in 2015 August. It was fantastic. Staff was so friendly and inviting, rooms were amazing. They don't have a gym or pool, but they have a partnership with someone so you can leave the hotel and use that. I have no idea where it is because I never used it, but great to have that option. Right next... More

Another wonderful short stay. Can't recommend the restaurant dining experience highly enough. Hotel modern and cosy, service attentive. Check the prices of the airport transfers, particularly out of hours, but otherwise outstanding.

The Abac hotel, whilst being about a 10 minute taxi ride to La Rambla was the perfect style of hotel to call home after spending all day touring this busy city. The decor is stylish, the rooms luxurious, the staff friendly and the ambience one of a secluded spa resort. We will definitely return.

The ABAC is in an older part of town but has all the amenities of a 5-star hotel. Very minimalistic. Dinner is quite nice and the breakfast is too. Very nice reception. The room we had was quite small but had a huge curved HDTV.

The ABaC Hotel, from the outside, does not look like a hotel, rather more like a modernist mansion of glass, steel, and wood, hidden behind towering wooden gates in a leafy suburb of Barcelona. Once inside the modern-minimalist ethic continues, shaded on the sumptuous side, with electric curtains, B&O televisions, a shower that imitates a torrential rainstorm, and many other... More

GASTRONOMY, ARCHITECTURE AND DESIGN...

Close to the most important points of the city. Work of the architect Antoni de Moragas, consists of two buildings integrated in a garden. The centennial building was refurbished due to its historical value and it was the old residence of Dona Madronita, an intellectual of the born Catalan bourgeoisie at the end of XIX century. She was the daughter of the famous pharmacist Dr. Andreu, and she was the wife of the North American Max Klein (president of the Chamber of Commerce of the United States and one of the introducers of the basketball in Spain). On the other hand, the new crystal pavilion is covered of lattices of wood and joined the garden. Landscape and architecture give themselves the hand in a space of pure lines.

Located in the newly constructed pavilion in direct contact with the garden, the interior and the exterior are found through large windows. It is a caprice of whites, in all tones. In a calm, neutral and elegant atmosphere, the sense of sophistication is shaped by the small details and the materials used, as well as a sophisticated combination of lights.
