Myself and my partner Lesley, her sister Carol and fella Bruce all stayed here for 5 nights. Brilliant hotel, clean, very snazzy, attentive staff. The location is a fair distance from the tourist places but with 8 euros to La Barceloneta, 35 to the Airport and 11 to Las Ramblas it is no hardship to be out of town. The... More

A friend and I stayed at this hotel for a long weekend in August. It was a great choice for a relaxing few days in the sun, close to the beach and a stone's throw from Glories station and shopping centre. It is a modern hotel, with a small swimming pool and rooftop bar. You will have to get up... More

Third stay in thus hotel. Again a great experience. Situated away from the main drag of tourist hotels, but great access to All attractions via tram and underground metro, plus walking of course! Roof terrace is nice but can get very busy.

I have just got back from a lovely week in Barcelona. I got this on a deal via Expedia. First of all I have never been to a 4 star hotel before (can never usually afford it). I fell in love with it straight away. The smell to the hotel is lovely. All the staff are welcoming and very friendly,... More

Well-placed, modern hotel in Barcelona. Handy for trams, shopping mall, restaurants and 25 mins walk from Port Olimpic. Staff polite and helpful; food very good - either dinner or snacks. Rooms comfortable and well-furnished. Rooftop pool is small, but good for unwinding by with a drink. Room rates also good VFM. Catered for children/families despite the "boutique" tag. Will definitely... More

A cool design hotel in an edgy industrial (but improving) area. However we just checked in and it's clear that maintenance is a low priority. In our room the carpet is dirty to the point of sticky, water damage stains in evidence on the wall, a broken door fixture in the bathroom and the sofa is torn. The rooftop bar... More

The hotel is located in a great area and the rooms are nice. The roof terrace was a little bit disappointing because the swimming pool is very small and doesn't look like the pictures on the Internet. The sun is blocked by the big buildings nearby and therefor you have to count on shadow on the roof terrace in the... 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.
