I stayed here for a week as I was posted to Barcelona for work. Room is cleaned daily and the towels are always changed despite me trying to keep it dry on the sides.... Oh well... The breakfast spread daily is nearly the same everyday except for some changes in the ham. What I find great about this place is... More

This hotel is in great location - close to Llacuna metro and 2 minute walk to Rambla de Poblenou which is the social centre of the area. Lovely tree lined pedestrianised thoroughfare with lots of good restaurants. Hotel room was well maintained and cleaned. Breakfast was traditional continental fare of bread , cheese/ham , cereals etc but was good quality... More

Me and my wife stayed in this hotel for long weekend and it was just fine. We got early check-in and late check-out without any problem. Room is not new, but clean and everything functional. Very close to metro. Breakfast is very simple, but it's what you get for that price. So if you need decent hotel for modest price... More

Location is bit away from city center but there are lot of restaurants and beach still in walking distance. Rooms are in good shape and very clean but not very big. They are very clean and A/C works very good. Also noise from streets does not come in. Breakfast is Express stuff so not very good. Ok, coffee/juice/cereals/bread/rolls/yoghourt so all... More

Has a 3 night stay during our recent trip to Barcelona. The hotel is located in the new development area with many high-tech looking buildings among the many older properties. The Pablosec neighborhood seems a middle class area and many trendy restaurants and bars on this main walking street. Always nice to have lunch/dinner on the outside seatings. Check-in was... More

If you like to visit foreign cities but want a familiar style of hotel to retire to, this is the place for you. Strictly conforming to the Holiday Inn Express franchise format it is clean, comfortable and quiet. Breakfast has a continental flavor with generous arrays of cold meats and cheeses but no hot food. There is also a small... More

Stayed in this hotel for 1 night returning from a cruise. It is just outside the city centre but still convenient for the beach and sight seeing. The access is a bit difficult as entry is on the ground floor but reception is on the first floor with rooms above that. You have to use stairs or 2 small lifts... More

The hotel has the basic needs: - clean room - free wifi - good bed - breakfast The hotel is located near a nice shopping street with some nice restaurant. It looked as only local Spanish people where there. No one was bothering us with tourist stuff. The neighbourhood felt very safe.

As you would expect for a holiday inn express clean comfortable and extremely friendly and helpful staff. Metro less than 5 minutes away. And 2 minutes away a street full of restraunts shops and a supermarket and kid friendly for evening meals.

Takes a lot for us to write a poor review but feel pretty disappointed. We arrived at 23h after long journey with two children hoping to get them straight to bed but they had forgotten to make sofa bed up for kids so had to wait for that to be done. Room size standard, basic, v tired and not paryicularly... More
