great place to stay if you're looking at a few nights in barcelona and you're on a budget very clean, great facilities, walking distance to beach The rooftop pools were great (not always busy either) Each floor has a kitchen which is great for when you're trying to save money not eating out - fridge to keep beers/drinks cold too!...

We stayed in this hotel for one night in May 2014, our room was new and clean. We arrived at the hotel before check-in and we were allowed to store our bags as we explored the city. The hotel was about a 30 minute walk from La Rambla, the bathroom was very clean and the bed was small but comfortable,... More

Not as well located as its Poble Sec location, but it is a much nicer area. Can see the beach from the high floors. Convenient kitchen and eating area. A bit uncomfortable sharing with students at times... But great concept for exploring BCN.

They say that first impressions count and the staff at the reception desk do everything they can to make you feel welcome when you first arrive. That level of first class customer service continued throughout our stay. The Hotel/Hostel has a mixture of residential students and tourists and I would say that the accommodation is more suited to the former.... More

The rooms were quite small with only 1 double bed (140cm) and the bathroom was more like a bigger wardrobe. However, Wifi was included and worked well and also the little desk and cupboard with an integrated wardrobe came in handy. The kitchen/lounge located on every floor was a nice place to hang out after a day full of sightseeing... More

I stayed here for 4 nights on a last minute trip to Barcelona. I booked through another website and did not realise it was a student halls of residence. The room was fine although it smelled of smoke and needed re-painting. The bathroom was small but adequate. It had everything you needed for a city break when you don't spend... More

Ok so entered this room on a short weekend break for a conference with a friend, room was very small but not something to complain about for the value of money, room was very clean on arrival although if you want the room cleaned during your stay it's an extra charge, good place if your Young close to a metro...

horrible experience. studied abroad in Barcelona and only stayed for a month it was that bad. Maybe okay for a hotel for a few nights. There is only wifi in common areas. They took away my whole security deposit (over 1500 US dollars) when I wanted to leave due to their horrible facilities. Also ghetto area with construction and sewage... 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.
