Stayed at this hotel during my first time visiting Barcelona. The rooms were decently priced, and the hotel is in a convenient location, close to many restaurants open late at night. It is also near the train station, making it easy to visit all the different areas of Barcelona. The front desk staff were excellent in letting guests know what... More

My daughter arranged all the bookings for a 4 day trip to Barcelona through BA holidays and this was the hotel that was part of the package. I was pleasantly surprised. Check in was easy and the Reception staff were friendly and helpful. Our room was on the 4th floor which overlooked a side road and not a very interesting... More

We were there back in December for the 2015 Ice Skating Grand Prix. Staff members were all very approachable, welcoming and with a comfortable command of english. Breakfast was basic and rooms were more spacious than expected, with the only downside being that the closets are a tad too small. All in all well done

Stayed here for 3 nights and generally the stay was positive. The staff are competent and friendly and gave sound advice regarding how to get around the city. The breakfast was typical of a Holiday Inn Express with the same fare each day but was generous and always renewed. The room was fine and the wifi was generally quick except... More

I've stayed here twice and will probably stay here again. The price is good, the wifi is fast, the rooms are clean and the staff is friendly. The beds aren't as comfortable as I'd like but the real drawback is the lack of control of the air con. While there is a controller I don't think you have much control... More

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.
