3 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

The location itself isn't in the city center where all the action is, however, it didn't really bother me too much. Some small things would have made the experience better; there was no plug in the washroom to use your own hairdryer so we were forced to dry our hair in the hallway, there was no alarm clock radio for...

The hotel is in a good location with a large shopping centre across the road. The room is basic and although the bed didn't look very inviting it was quite comfortable. The bathroom was quite large with only a shower cubicle. These is no balcony. A very good breakfast is on offer. The rooftop swimming pool is very nice although... More

Excellent location, easy to get to the beach either by foot or by bus. The closest beach seems to be more for local people rather than tourists so it wasn't too crowded. Shopping mall with restaurants and supermarket across the street makes it very convenient for families. On the down side, I would say the hotel needs to improve their... More

This is a lovely hotel with fantastic views over the city (provided you have a city facing view). There is a metro station and tram stop right next to the hotel, and it is only 15 minutes walk to the Sagrada Familia and the beach. The nearby Ramblas El Poblenou has excellent restaurants, and the hotel is situated next to... More

Stayed here as a family of four during the Easter school holidays. Rooms are quite small for four, but very clean and modern with a big bathroom. The hotel is not very close to the main tourist attractions; however, the metro station is less than 5 minutes away walking. The pool was closed while we were there, but it looked... More

I would and will recommend this hotel to others. The location is convenient to the beach and metro station. Far enough away from busy tourist stops. Sorry but no photos. The room was clean and the wifi was good. The pool on the roof was nice and the games for kids was nice.

At first I thought I made a huge mistake booking this hotel because of its location outside of the touristy area, but that was just not true. True, if you want to walk Las Rambla from your hotel this might not be your prime location, but with a taxi stand just across the street and within walking distance to La... More

Stayed here last Thursday (13th August) Check in at reception was quick and easy, the room (junior suite) was fantastic, loads of space and really comfortable beds (although I'm not sure what the square pillows were all about!) The roofside bar and pool were fantastic loads of English up there - and, when the thunderstorm that they'd wanted for 6... 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.
