From reception staff, housekeeping, security, chefs at the restaurant etc, 99% of the staff were friendly and helpful. The room: clean and tidy when we arrived, and the housekeeping kept this up while we were at breakfast everyday. There was a minibar and kettle, and tea and coffee were available in the room. Nice view of the city and coast,... More

Great location to explore the city. Bed and breakfast a good option with plenty of choice available. The roof top bar gives great views of the city but I'd question the cleanliness of the pool water which seemed very oily and cloudy. There's a supermarket across the road for any supplies and a number of bars and restaurants within easy... More

Overall, while not a complete disaster, this is probably the worst hotel experience I've had for quite a while. And as someone who completes 100+ nights a year, I stay at hotels pretty often. The location is fairly poor and not particularly central. You will need taxi or metro to get to anywhere in central Barcelona. There are a few... More

Was here for a congress. Got an upgrade and stayed in a corner room with all facilities and great view on the Torre Agbar, locally better known under different names ;-) With a bit of stretch I could even see the Sagrada Familia. On walking distance of the Picasso museum and the downtown area with the port and the ramblas.... More

The Novotel in Barcelona is a nice hotel for a city trip with kids. The family rooms are sufficient with two children and the prices are moderate. Only the parking is a bit expensive with 18€ per day. The kids corner is okay to entertain little kids for a while but not for hours.

Lovely helpful reception staff. Clean, compact room with a nice view. Comfortable bed, but dreadful pancake pillows. Loved that we could open a window - the damm thing wouldnt stay open though which was disappointing. Bathroom obviously leaking into the bedroom as the carpet is wet - but housecleaning dont notice? When you make up the room I would presume... More

We stayed for one night, the hotel is far from Barcelona downtown (12 kms in the south) but it was an issue as we traveled by car. The hotel amenities and service gave us full satisfaction (cleanliness, staff members, breakfast, easy to park the car).

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.
