This hotel consists of 6 storeys, the room we're staying is quite small but it is clean and comfortable for 2 persons. Paid 150 euros for 2 nights via IHG membership website, and it provides basic amenities such as kettle, instant coffee, hair dryer, soap (love the Lux soaps & shampoos) however there's no slippers, robe or shower caps, but...

Well, what can I say? What really made this hotel excellent was the staff - the ladies who cleaned our room each day were thorough and wonderful. The man in the breakfast room was particularly helpful when my toddler smashed a bowl and made a mess. The reception woman was friendly and helpful. The location is also excellent - not... More

Having stayed here 3 years ago, I went back 2 nights for business reasons. The hotel was loaded of package tourists which made the place pretty load and busy. Bed quality was pretty low and I had to take a smoking room in order to get a double bed although I booked the room weeks in advance and mention on... More

We stayed at the Holiday Inn for 2 nights. It would have been tricky to find if we had taken public transport to get from the airport. We got a cab from the airport to the hotel which took about 30 minutes to get there. The hotel doesn't have very nice surroundings, it has a gym owned by a different... More

Internet speed was very good. Beach is at walking distance of 10 minutes. Also there are various eating outlets, restaurants, pubs, supermarket in surrounding area. Room service was... More

There is not restaraunt as such but they do... More

Had to cancel the room at short notice due to a death in the family. Provided death certificate but were not interested in giving a refund, changing the dates or any kind of compromise stating that there is a no refund policy on non cancellable rates. We got refunds from everyone else apart from HIE on the whole trip 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.
