Yes this a basic hotel, and this shows with the breakfast where we found the coffee was so bad we could not drink it. However the staff were friendly and the room we stayed in was perfect for our needs (some coat hooks would be a great addition to the room) and the location was good. A short 5 min... More

Amazing location, near some amazing restaurants and 5 minutes walk from the beach. Taxi's readily available to go into the city of Barcelona. The hotel overall is clean, welcoming and pleasant atmosphere- the staff can not do enough, nothing is too much and they always stop to chat. Would highly recommend this hotel.

Holiday Inn Express is a no frill and no plush brand of its bigger sister Holiday Inn. So do not expect doorman, minibars in room and all extras associated with 4 or 5 star hotels. If you are looking for place to have comfortable sleep and don't expect any of these extras it is perfect hotel in perfect location. Hotel... More

I stayed for 2 nights with my son. The hotel is about 3 blocks from a Metro stop and he and I were able to spend 2 full days touring the sights of Barcelona with out ever getting the car from the hotels underground garage. Its right on the yellow line which is just a few stops away from downtown... More

The location was good for us as it was walking distance to Barcelona beach and to a variety of nice restaurants. Not too crowded and the service was good. The hotel breakfast was included in the price and was quite okay. The aircon in the room was excellent as I know this is one complaint of many folks that stay... More

It may not be a 5 star luxury hotel where suited and booted limo drivers drive you around, but it is a 5 star in terms of staff hospitality, patience and intention to meet every guest demand to the best of their abilities. Convenient location, close to the metro, close to the beaches, quiet area, perfect for a family holiday.

First of all I would like to thank Monica for being so kind and professional. This hotel is the best choice if you want to be close to the seaside. We've booked a family room that was very clean and spacious. The hotel public areas look very nice, the breakfast was very busy around 10.15 when we arrived but the... More

The front desk reception team is cheerful and very kind. They speak English very well. I am a Platinum member of the IHG so I received a complimentary alcohol drink and snack at night. It was lovely hospitality on behalf of the IHG at this hotel. Our family loved that hotel because of the hotel team's positive attitude and kindness.... 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.
