If you are heading to Barcelona to explore the city there is a problem staying at ABaC: you might not want to leave the hotel. Located in the upscale Sarriá-Sant Gervasi, a neighborhood a little distant from the hectic historic center or waterfront attractions (10 min by taxi), the ABaC is a small and intimate retreat surrounded by nature in a very quiet region. It is the perfect option if you are looking to relax after a day’s stroll in the hectic city. It has only 15 rooms and the current hotel is a fusion of two buildings, one of which is a listed monument by the city council. We considered ABaC an oasis in town and welcomed the fact that this hotel boasts an amazing and a highly recognized two star Michelin restaurant (check our Eat & Drink), as well as a tapas bar, a great spa with hammam and pools, and a garden to enjoy some fresh open air. The rooms are big and as soothing and comfortable as you can get, with large windows that allow light and nature to come in, magnificent.
