4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW via mobile

Overnight stay before going on a Cruise. Reception Staff very friendly and very helpful. Only on type of beer on draught and small selection of bottled beers. Rooms very good, comfortable beds. Breakfast is continental style. Not many other facilities near by so be prepared to walk or go on the Metro trains.

The location was good, walking distance to Diagonal, where there is a Carrefour that is enormous. It felt empty in the neighborhood, but crowded in the hotel. The room was fine, no view but enough room for a family of four. There were so many kids, including ours, I guess due to Disney Cruise. Breakfast was a zoo and we... More

A standard hotel beds were comfortable and room is decent. Breakfast was like an assembly line in the mornings with families and all sorts, but at least you were able to take fruit and yogurt with you. Continental breakfast was not the best but alright. The location of the hotel is very close to Llacuna metro station and beach Barceloneta... More

As a loyal IHG Gold Elite member I try to stay in the IHG-chain of hotels as much as possible. So this choice for this hotel was mainly based on this fact. I knew the location was a bit off so I am not complaining about that fact. But if you want to be in the middle of it all... More

Many earlier have commented about this - it's a no frills accommodation. They have commented on the need to refurbish, and on the rather bland and standard breakfast - and I have to agree. Liquid soap is the only toiletry provided, you can ask for something that you forgot to bring, they say. I asked for a moisturiser but they... More

My extended family and I had three rooms at this hotel in July 2016. We were able to easily leave our bags, and the friendly, multi-lingual staff gave us maps of the metro and the surrounding area, even pointing out a few restaurants to try. The metro station is quite close and the Barcelona metro is easy to use in... More

Maybe I just was unlucky but our family room was horrible. Carpet thin & stained, left my shoes on. Bathroom, grout was black, plastic on bottom of shower screen was yellow. Plug sockets didn't look safe. It was most probably clean but as it was so badly in need of updating just looked horrid. Good points allowed us to store... More

Staying at this hotel was a good choice. Room was very clean. Staff was very helpful and breakfast was good too. We had an internal room so no views but a lot of quiet. Hotel is about 20 minute walk from the beach. If you walk to Torre Agbar you will find a number of food stores, a supermarket, restaurants... 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.
