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

Metro map and directions can be had from Tourist Information in airport terminal. Going by Metro to the city centre from the hotel takes around 20mins or... More

We picked this hotel for a one night stay before heading in our rental vehicle to France for a few days. Checking in as an IHG member was fast and efficient and it was easy to find a number of reasonably good restaurants two blocks away. We also went pass a supermarket which was rather convenient. It is late November,... More

The hotel is ok, rooms are clean and very functional. Friendly staff, good location, a good place to stay for 2-3 days. Rooms are not big, but clean and well organized. Location is good, not far from public transport (metro, bus and tram). Good breakfast.

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

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.
