The staff at the hotel were great! We enjoyed the room except we found the beds to be super hard and uncomfortable. The bathroom and room were very clean, but the carpets and walls were stained. It was great that it was so close to Rambla de Poblenou, lots of great restaurants. Nice that it had breakfast which had meats/cheeses,... More

Holiday in on Calle Pallars is central to many shops and restaurants. Staff was friendly and helpful. My family and I arrived early morning and we were able to check in right away. It's rare for hotels to allow early check in. I am thankful that Holiday Inn accommodated us. Staff at the front desk provided us with a map... More

Stayed here three times over the last 4 years and each time the service has been consistently good. First and foremost this is an affordable hotel in what can be an expensive major Spanish city, Good brand name giving assurance to standards expected, multi lingual polite desk staff, free inclusive continental breakfast, family rooms at no extra cost ( 2...

Spent a week here with family. Poblenou is a great area with a nice vibe. The beach is only about a 10 minute walk away, there is a supermarket around the corner,and Rambla Poblenou is full of cafes and restaurants. The metro (L4) is also just around the corner.

Liked the property, walking distance to and from the beach. The breakfast was great. Even though they maintain the standard across all holiday hotels, I found this hotel clean and specious. Staff were friendly...No problem at all.

Stayed here for 2 nights in March and you cannot fault the hotel. staff were friendly and breakfast was great. I believe we even got free wifi while we were there. They also had a luggage room so you could store your bags after check out so you do not have to take them with you. I would definitely stay... More

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

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

Family Friendly, needs better mattresses, but overall good value, easy location. Room includes breakfast, close to the Metro Station within three blocks.. Would stay there again, hope they update soon.

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.
