I had to opt for this hotel since I had unpleasant experience at Holiday Inn - Molins. I found this property amazing. As usual room was spacious like other hotels in Barcelona. Internet speed was very good. Beach is at walking distance of 10 minutes. Also there are various eating outlets, restaurants, pubs, supermarket in surrounding area. Room service was... More

I stayed at this hotel with 4 of my collegues for a 4 day stay. Its average, the bedroom was fine but there was a lack of plug sockets and the bathroom was tired and I had to get the shower repaired; this was done quickly and efficiently I must add. There is not restaraunt as such but they do... More

Had to cancel the room at short notice due to a death in the family. Provided death certificate but were not interested in giving a refund, changing the dates or any kind of compromise stating that there is a no refund policy on non cancellable rates. We got refunds from everyone else apart from HIE on the whole trip and... More

This hotel is in a remote area with some new office buildings and a lot of old empty houses, but bus and Metro are near by. The hotel is quite new with decent rooms, clean and rather quiet. The free breakfast is above average with several breads, cold cuts, cereals, and some sweet stuff. A bar open until midnight has... More

We stayed here one night on a recent trip to Barcelona. We arrived late and were leaving early, so we wanted something cheap and clean. This hotel fit the bill. The staff was very friendly and recommended a nearby street with several restaurants (and the one we ate at was outstanding). The free breakfast the next morning was a nice... More

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. Overal I enjoyed my stay at the... More

I had a perfect stay at this hotel. No problem with check-in and check-out procedure. Hotel staff was really helpful. Breakfast had variety of items. Rooms were comfortable and wifi was good.

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

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.
