The hotel was close to metro station and we felt safe walking back around 11pm. The room was a good size for us and perhaps we were lucky but it was quiet. We had no trouble setting the temperature with the wall switch. The room is as clean as I expect from a hotel. The wifi was free and fast!... More

A very nice hotel, with lovely rooms which have everything you need. You can even buy some products at the reception desk if you'd forgotten your tooth brush etc. The room was clean, has got airconditioning. It is a bit further away from the center, but a metro stop is around the corner and a lively street with a lot... More

Room was worn and old feeling. The bed was extremely uncomfortable and the location not the best. The room was unbearably hot! It was very warm outside, but because of the season, the hotel had the heat on! Be aware that there is no ability to adjust the temperature in your room. So if you are traveling in a shoulder...

Stayed at this hotel for a short city break and it did everything that we needed it to. Loved that it was a short walk (<5minutes) away from Poblenou's bars and restaurants and not far at all on the subway to Barcelona's main attractions. Room was clean and well appointed, breakfast was fine to give us a bite to eat... More

I stayed in this HIE for the first time but I stayed at other HIE in the USA and Europe. I found this IHE is not consistent with the others. The maid services were not consistent. One day they leave tea bags and extra towels. Other day there was no tea and just 2 towels. The room has no wall... More

Breakfast is included and adequate, good coffee though. Wi-Fi is free and fast. Guest rooms are small and not catered for long haul travelers like us, there is no in-room safe, fridge and toothbrushes. The hotel is closed to a Metro station, also walking distance to Glories (20 minutes)and the beaches (15 minutes) with a supermarket on next block of... More

We spent two nights in Holiday Inn Express hotel in Barcelona. We were driving a rental car and had four people in our group. We booked two rooms in the hotel, one with a double bed and the other with two single beds. Barcelona is a big city and we normally prefer to stay outside big cities to avoid city... More

Location not a plus, too sparten (no safe, no closet space, no refrigerator, lack of amneties), adequate breakfast, friendly staff, clean room. Television was too small and not wide screen. Limited English speaking channels.

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.
