      Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Vilamari Barcelona

      Excellent Referral

      from

      Was given the name of the hotel from my brother-in-law who has stayed in AC Hotels in Milan - and we were not disappointed!

      Good location, quieter streets but very close to everything at the same time!

      Hotel was exceptionally clean, modern and after a very long day sightseeing - the bed was extremely comfortable! The shower was very impressive, strong enough to pin you against the wall, if that's how you like it! First class staff also!

      Thoroughly enjoyable, and will definately use this chain of hotels in the future!

      Accolades to AC

      from

      We recently spent 7 nights at the AC Vilamari in Barcelona. The hotel is located in a side street very close to the Plaza Espana, one of the two stops for the Airport Bus (E3.60 pp). It was an easy 15 -20 minute walk up the Grand Via, past the University, to the Plaza Catalunya and the Ramblas. For those who don't know the AC chain, they have a formula for their 60+ hotels in Spain. Desingned primarily for the businessman, their hotels are clean and modern with a design feel (green marble bathrooms with glass sinks; hardwood floors in all the rooms; modern soji screen cupboards) delivered in a mid-range price. The contents of the minibar are free. Downstairs a "lounge" offers free large minibar, coffee machine and surprisingly good pastries, also free. There are free newspapers (the Vilamari had the International Herald Tribune daily) and a large screen tv on the wall (BBC News and CNN were available). Wifi is available throughout the hotel and you could use a computer in the lounge area (upon purchase of a prepaid card by the hour or by the day). There was a small gym stocked with water and fresh apples for those who want to stay fit during their stay. Staff were invariably helpful and friendly. We did not sample the breakfast buffet at the hotel but ate at a bar across the street where delicious coffee, fresh orange juice and pastry or a cheese sandwich cost around 5 Euros for two. We did eat at the hotel restaurant the first night as we were tired from the trip. The menu was limited but what we had was unexpectedly good and the waiter was very helpful with spanish wine suggestions. Of course the prices were more than in a restaurant but you are paying for the convenience of eating in your hotel. We loved Barcelona and this hotel and would go back in a heartbeat.

      Good hotel whit constant quality

      from

      Stayed for the thirth year at this hotel. It still looks good and things are still working correctly.

      Rooms are smaller than at the Silken Diagonal but are more comfortable because it isn't over designed like the Silken. Bathroom had a large shower which worked superbe. The mattresse is getting softer over the years, but it is still comfortable enough.

      Breakfast was ok, nothing special. What you see is what you get, there is no cook available at the breakfastroom. Maybe one can order an omlette at a waitresse but I haven't done that.

      Conclusion : Ac chain has got some verry nice hotels, one knows what one can expect. Would defenetly go back to his hotel next time.

      A very good hotel at a reasonable price

      from

      This a very good hotel with great prices. The rooms are small, but typical for Europe. Everything was very clean, and the sodas and water in the small refrigerator are included in the price of the room. The hotel is located near Plaza de Espana, and thus, is not close to Las Ramblas. However, there is a stop for both the metro and Bus Turistic (Hop on, Hop off) nearby.

      Better than expected!!

      from

      We needed a one night stay prior to the start of our Mediterranean Cruise in June 2004. This hotel was a quiet oasis upon entering with very clean, nicely appointed rooms (though a bit small based on US standards). The free bottled water was a definite plus. Be sure to note the restaurant times since most were closed after we got up from a nap on our arrival day. The front desk was helpful with information and arranging taxi transportation to the ship the next day.

      While it is not in the heart of town (not many restaurants or shops), it is conveniently located within a couple of blocks of Placa D'Espanya (location for Bus Turistic pickup, metro, etc).

      We would definitely stay here again.

      Very Good Hotel

      from

      Me and my wife were staing in this hotel at October 2004.

      The hotel is almost perfectly situated - 3 min walking till Espania plaza, 3 bus stops (1.10 eur) till Catalanya plaza.

      Rooms are not big, but quite comfortable and clean. Hotel is new and you can feel it. There is no minibar in room. But free water/soda-water on your floor and pastries and coffe free in lobby (12:00-19:00) makes minibar unneded..

      Cool hotel for reasonable price.

      Great Hotel

      from

      We stayed at this hotel for five nights in Oct 03. The hotel is near to the Placa Espanya, within five minutes by metro to lots of tourist sites. We found the hotel to be modern, comfortable and v. clean. The staff and amenities superb. Although no coffee making facitilies or mini-bar in the room, you were able to help yourself to bottled water, hot and cold drinks, pastries as well as spirits! My only minor complaint was that the restaurant only provided a menu in catalonian spanish. The hotel room was small to medium, with wooden floors and very comfy bed. The bathroom was sumptious in green marble and non-steam mirror. Highly recommended, would definitely go back to this hotel.

      Excellent AC Vilamari in Barcelona

      from

      An extremely nice stay at this hotel - excellent location in the heart of Barcelona's beautiful architecture, yet still a haven of tranquility in the middle of this capital city. The rooms are immaculate, modern throughout, especially marble bathroom. The free water, fruit, coffee, pastries, and -yes- alcohol (!) all make for a very civilised and comfortable stay. Excellent value for money.

      There is quite a bit of controversy now in Barcelona because of the secession vote that was cancelled. I don't know all the details, but from what I gathered, the Catalonian parliament voted to call a non-binding referendum to vote on Catalonian independence. The vote was supposed to be on Nov. 9, but the Spanish parliament declared it unconstitutional, saying that any referendums should be open to all Spanish voters, not just ...

      ... idea is not to put your teeth, mouth or any body part on it... one woman didn't quite get the point, but I digress.

      That account only scratched the surface of what was a brilliant and memorable final day in Barcelona, but I will leave it there lest I bore you to tears.

      Tomorrow, me voy a Valencia por tren! I'm off to get some shut eye before my four-hour train journey in the morning.

      ... dinner again, the 1 euro shots of tequila are too hard for me to pass up this time, we all have 5 each with dinner then return to the hostel to start prinks before our open air pool party tonight. Wanting to spend as little as possible tonight we demolish a bottle of Vodka, Michael and I then talk to the Scottish bartender and have some unneeded cocktails, since we are so 'ladsy' the bartender keeps topping up our drinks, this exact moment is when my memory disappears...
