Stayed in this Holiday Inn Express in Barcelona,Spain last week. This is without a doubt the dirtiest, most dismal Holiday Inn I have ever stayed in. The carpeting in the hallways were threadbare and stained throughout, as if they were salvaged from a long ago flood. The wallpaper was torn and dirty and these conditions were the same on all...

Pay attention and bring your credit card or you will be left... out, even if you already paid your room. Clean service is bad, breakfast poor, location is perhaps the best, but yet not so good. I won't repeat!

The hotel is pretty cool location-wise . I think it was fit into old office buildings . It's an express so expect basic amenities but rooms are clean a little old but overall acceptable. Breakfast is the typical express style very basic but enough to fill you up. The staff was great !! Very nice and helpful..

We stayed there for 4 night prior to going on a cruise. It is a small hotel but close to the beach to restaurants and to the subway. The subway in Barcelona is fantastic and cheap so transportation was easy. The room is not to big bur very clean, the breakfast included in the price is a very high end... More

The neighbourhood is not attractive but I certainly didn't feel uncomfortable walking back from the Metro late at night. Room is pretty standard and exactly what you would expect.

Stayed here for 4 nights recently. The hotel is very much in line with other Holiday Inn Expresses. It is basic but very clean and quiet. Breakfast is a buffet with plenty of options. It is not 5 star but is is not priced as such. Not 100% sure as to location in respect to sight seeing as I was... More

We spent 3 nights at this hotel in Barcelona. We enjoyed the area, away from the tourist sights but close to the metro, the beach and to a pedestrian street with nice restaurants - this seems to be one of the up-and-coming neighbourhoods of Barcelona. We had a family room, the kids didn't complain about the sofa bed but when... More

A great place to stay when visiting Barcelona for a few days. A taxi from the airport meant that we had no problem locating this hotel, as it is somewhat " tucked away". We were very early and our rooms were not ready as the hotel had been full the night before. Storing our bags securely meant that we could... 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.
