My fiancée and I spent 4 nights at Silken Diagonal in April 2015. It was an okay stay... but we were not impressed. The good things first: - The hotel is close to the metro, which means you can get around the city fairly quickly and easily, even though you are not in the centre. Convenient! There is a mall...

We stayed here for 5 nights recently and really enjoyed our stay. We got a taxi for around $30 from the airport which took around 15-20 minutes or so. As we had an early flight, we knew we would arrive before check in, however the hotel kept our bags for us whilst we went to explore the local area. On... More

Had an enjoyable stay at the Silken Diagonal. A very modern, but comfortable hotel. We stayed 5 nights. Although away from the old town (20 mins walk and metro) it was very well located for the city's extensive offer. We walked to the Sagrada Familia (make sure you book in advance - even better inside than out). The hotel is... More

My partner and I stayed at the Silken Diagonal for one week and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The hotel is easily accessible using the local transport network (either via line 4 of the tram network which stops right outside, or on the underground Line 1 just a 2 minute walk away) and can be located easily by looking out for...

People tend to moan a lot on trip advisor, but I am genuine,y not one of those reviewers (please read my other posts) but on this occasion I was not impressed. Simple things let this hotel down: 1. I booked a king size room & a twin room. Upon check in I was told that we had a room with... More

Myself and my 2 children stayed at this hotel in April 2015, I have to say it was perfect. My son left his backpack in the back of the taxi from the airport to the hotel, the staff at the hotel couldn't have done more to try and get his backpack back. There was nothing valuable as much as his... 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.
