I was in Barcelona earlier this week for a conference at the CCIB. The hotel is just a 15-20 minute walk to the CCIB. It is located in a less aesthetically pleasing part of Barcelona but the area is perfectly safe. There is a metro station just a 5 minute walk away. The room I had was clean and the... More

Stayed at this lovely hotel. Excellent for our needs. Room was spacious with a lovely bathroom. The hotel offered free breakfast with our package which consisted of meats and cheeses. A variety of hot and cold drinks. Cereals. Fruits and yogurts. No hot food. But we wasn't fussed. The hotel it's self is very close to the subway and not... More

This is a very average property. The thing we enjoyed much was the neighborhood. One block away is the long Poblenou Rambla, an 8-block long mostly pedestrian street leading to the beach. There are several wonderful restaurants, outdoor cafes, pastry and coffee shops, small dive food shops and stores along the Rambla. Because this Holiday Inn Express is just about... More

The rule at the IHG hotels is very simple. Offer breakfast for free to all when it costs close to nothing, i.e. it is of industrial quality that is not even fit for animal consumption, If it is slightly better than that, start charging for breakfast. So, now you know that when Holiday Inn Express tout free breakfast, it is... More

The hotel is very close to the metro station that brings you to major tourist attractions. There are quite a number of bars and restaurants just 5-minute walk from the hotel. A supermarket is just round the corner. The complimentary buffet breakfast offers good choices of food that could fill your stomach well to start a good day. The room... More

This is one of the rare hotels which children under 18 stay free. Checkin was efficient, though room a little tight to accommodate 2 adults and 2 teenagers. Very hardworking staff, especially Marta at reception and the ladies manning the breakfast area, keep up the good work! Location was great, we found Glories to be a good alternative to take... More

For a Holiday Inn I was really actually impressed with this place. The cleanliness of the rooms and bathrooms was excellent, the staff were all super friendly, there's free wi-fi and the free breakfast is certainly a step up from the free breakfasts you get in the Holiday Inn's in Britain. It's super close to a great wee supermarket and... More

The hotel is conveniently located close to two metro stations. Several bus routes around, including one which will take you straight to Park Guell. Beach is just a nice walking distance from the hotel. Many restaurants, bars and shops are close by. There is a supermarket round the corner for your food and essential needs.

I picked this hotel as it's near to the beach and the city centre - Llacuna station connects you easily to wherever you need to go providing you're confident using the metro, which is easy. It's in the business district, and is not scenic from the outside, but that wasn't a big deal. It was a fine hotel, nice and... 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.
