4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW via mobile

Close to beach, good transport links nearby. Area going through major redevelopment so a bit grim and maybe don't venture out alone at night. Staff very warm, friendly and helpful. Breakfast good but no restaurant, but plenty of good places nearby.

Stayed 5 nights in August family 2 adults, 2 children. Attentive staff. Breakfast plentiful. Room clean, well serviced and appeared to have been refurbished. No problems with cleanliness of hotel. Beds comfortable, especially for one child who usually finds sofa beds uncomfortable but not the case here. Brilliant location, few stops from centre on metro and 25 mins from beach... More

This is a good hotel and the location is also good. It is close to the metro station and has a taxi rank outside. The best part is that it is walking distance from the beach. The rooms are ok and do not have minibar. There is a super store and good restaurants nearby. Overall good hotel.

i arrived around 8:30 in the morning and was very pleasantly surprized - the room was ready! the breakfast was delicious and the room was ok, far from luxury but worth its money. one thing i didn't liked was neighbourhood but really for no reason, just bad first impression.

This hotel is close to the beach like 10 minutes walking through the ramblas full of restaurants and shops. Rooms are not big but comfortable, breakfast is very busy and basic. I like better the next door place with great coffee and more variety of food, delicious pastries and also good for light lunch I (forgot the name).

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.
