TravelPod Member ReviewsAC Hotel Sants by Marriott Barcelona
We had a very nice room but it overlooked the train station and in that square was a carnival which went on until about 2 a.m. the noise came right into the room and made it difficult to sleep. we were one of the last ones into the hotel that night so they would have been willing to change our room but there were no rooms available that were away from the noise. otherwise, it was a good place to stay.
