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

A nice hotel situated midway between Llacuna & Poblenou metro stations (L4 line). Easy to get to from the airport (buy T10 ticket from machine as does both RENFE airport train & Metro). 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.

Staying in Poblenou

Neighborhood Profile
Poblenou
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.
