A modern, nice hotel with walking distance to the metro, shopping and restaurants. The only thing missing from our end was that the water in the pool on the roof was cold. Had the water been heated, it would have been perfect. The map of the city handed out at the hotel was not the best, except for this all... More

Just checked-in couple of hours ago, and shouldn't have chosen this hotel actually. - Wifi dated from 80s (56k speed) - Furnitures very tired - No complimentary water bottles - Terrible springs mattress, springs not being covered by anything and killing your back as well as all the other bones of your body. When we know that the purpose of... More

Stayed here with my wife, while I was on a business trip to Barcelona due to its convenient location in the business district. Price wise the hotel was excellent value for money, however I found the whole hotel very dark. The hallways were extremely dark, to the point where I would say it was actually dangerous. The rooms were not... More

I stayed here two nights with my teenage son. The staff were lovely, friendly and helpful. The tram and metro are literally just outside, and its a short journey to the city centre and the beach.

We stayed in the silken hotel in the first week of February as my Christmas present. I definitely wasn't disappointed! The bar was right at the entrance which is enticing, and the friendly batman, Jerrone I think his name was, was so smiley and professional every time we saw him. He was particularly helpful when we asked where's good to... More

The hotel was fantastic. The room was excellent and my nephew and I had a fantastic time. I would recommend this hotel. Walking distance to the beach and very central if you want to shop. The metro and tram lines are just next door and the hotel is spotless.

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.
