Reviewed today NEW

Located away from the touristy area just next to the modern Torre Agbar building. Nice spacious rooms with generous sized bathrooms. Was thoroughly dissappointed with the hotel, ranging from sour faced reception staff, unresponsive cold and definitely not sure what customer service is. After a long flight from Asia arriving early (10ish) the unforgiving Reception staff insisted that we can... More

Thank you for another very enjoyable stay at your hotel. Everything went to plan, and I would recommend your hotel to anyone who is planning a trip to Barcelona. Excellent value for money, cracking choice of food for breakfast, and with a tram stop outside the hotel and a subway station only 200 yards away, you can get around Barcelona... More

I am travelling with my adult daughter and we have been very happy with our accomodation. The rooms are very clean and beds comfortable. I have slept on the sofa bed which has also been as comfortable as a sofa bed can be. The girls on the reception have been helpful, confirming some of our bookings for us. The buffet... More

Very good option for business trips. Great buffet breakfast and service. Rooms were simple, very clear and comfy. Location is good, but not great. Taxis are easily available in front of the hotel. Staff very attentive.

I spent 3 nights here and appreciated the location, the room, and the service. I was upgraded to a suite, which was very spacious and comfortable. It certainly served my needs in terms of location as I had meetings (relatively) nearby, and taxis were easy to find. I'm not sure how good it would be for tourism, but there seemed... More

Its a Novotel so the rooms look like they came from IKEA but they are very clean, beds are comfortable and the shower is good, so its covers all the basics. Breakfast is good, wide variety and good quality. Dinner is fine, good wine selection. The bar on 19 is nice when the weather is good, it wasn't when we... More

I have stayed at many a Novotel, and this is the best I have ever stayed at! We stayed for 6 nights and were so please with our choice. Really well located, right near Glories station, as well as the shopping complex Glories, which is approx. 200m walk from the hotel. It has an excellent supermarket, 'Carrefour', H&M, C&A, Zara,...

The hotel is placed very centrally, right next to Glories, but I don't know enough about Barcelona to be sure this is the best place to be for tourists. What is certain is that you have plenty of ways to explore very close by: taxis, a tram, busses, a metro station and a train station to the airport. I took... More

Staying in Poblenou

Neighborhood Profile
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.
