This is a great budget hotel for exploring Barcelona, just out of the main city and very convenient location. Free breakfast, wi-fi, and kids stay free too. We would stay here again when we return. Barcelona city is amazing, and cheap to get around if you get a metro/bus pass.

Room was clean and adequate to sleep two adult and two children. The reception staff are very helpful and friendly. The continental breakfast is what you would expect but need better machines for tea. Hotel is not far from a Llacuna metro station and very close to supermarket if you need things quickly.

The hotel offers free wifi and breakfast, although its simple, it gets the job done. The staff were great and helpful, and will offer tips and directions for where to go and what to do in Barcelona. The rooms are small almost resembling an ikea showcase room, but its clean, modern and comfortable. The hotel is nearby to small local... More

This hotel is highlighted by incredible staff that was always positive and willing to help. The location is great, close to a grocery store as well as a pedestrian walkway that had a lot of shops and restaurants. It is possible to walk to the city center, in fact I would recommend it because the walk is incredible. We were... More

This place is a bit away from the city, so going in is either a metro ride or a cab ride. But this hotel has free breakfast and also free wifi included with stay, so balances out with places in the city that do not include these amenities. The place is clean and is close to a metro location (2... More

I stayed in this hotel along with my spouse and two kids for a week. Rooms are a bit small but clean and tidy. Easy access to metro/tram/bus. Friendly staff. Breakfast is not bad. Relatively Safe area. Excellent wifi

We stayed here during our first trip to Barcelona. Rooms were small but we found we wanted to spend little time in our room with so much to see and do. Nevertheless, the rooms were clean, comfortable, and quiet. The hotel is convenient to the Poblenou and many great restaurants. There also is a grocer nearby if you want to... More

This is a excellent hotel if you don't want to stay right in the heart of Barcelona, easy to get to on the Metro Llacuna station being the closest as stated on other reviews. The staff were very friendly on check-in, and as an express in europe a typical breakfast offering. The location made this hotel stand out though, just... More

Staying in Poblenou

Neighborhood Profile
The futuristic Agbar Tower stands out from Barcelona's skyline in Poblenou. It is no coincidence then that this area of town is the newly crowned technological park of the city, its own mini Silicon Valley containing a tech incubator (Barcelona Activa) as well as a host of local and international high tech companies. To accommodate the onrush of new residents and workers, the area of Poblenou has seen a surge of activity in new high-rise residential buildings and two top-notch shopping centers catering to everyone's need. The ambiance of this area is calmer than the city center and the beautifully relaxing Bogatell Beach, popular with locals, is just a handful of blocks away.
