My friend and I went to barcelona for the weekend just gone, I found melon district marina after a good old trip advisor scout, and for the price I thought it sounded pretty good. The location is great, it's not central but it's pretty accessible via tram,bus, metro or simply walking which was what we did mostly. The metro is...

The residence is very well located. Close to the city center (7min by Metro) and very quiet area. The staff was great and very welcoming. One of the nights the room given to us was occupied. It was embarrassing! The staff handled the situation very well and got us a fast solution. We were offered breakfast for the trouble. The...

Small room but me and my partner stayed for 4 nights and found it perfectly suited to our needs, we wanted an affordable option and did not care for luxuries, the room had what you need, bathroom, double bed, tv, storage, air condition and security box with code lock. There is a roof top pool that was perfect for our...

This accommodation isn't in the center but is quite good connected to the metro and tram lines. From what we experienced the rooms are spacious and clean. On the downside the air-conditioning/heating dries the air to an unbearable level. In the summer you have the possibility to use the swimming pool on the roof.

Friendly staff and good position within walking distance of a lot of the sites. Cafe provides good and simple fare at a good price. The rooms are basic student style accommodation with the added bonus of swimming pool on the roof giving fantastic views of the city day and night.

This is a kind of flat/residence very well organized. The apartment (double in my case) is enough for a short visit an offer nice installations. Close to the Metro (2 stations in walking distance) and also some bus options. Nice price for what it offers (room, shared kitchen, pool).

Features of this pool are really good including the pool and some friendly staff however the rooms were really depressing and bathrooms were poorly designed. I know this is a student hotel but I stayed in a few on my trip and this one was well below standard. Staff refused us a bottle of water despite having boxes and boxes...

Student accomodation, small room and bathroom. Perfect for travellers visiting the city and who would not be staying in the room for long. Very close to razzmatazz and the marina and bogetel metro stations. 2km walk to barcelona centre- Plaza catalunya,Las ramblas

Stayed for 7 nights, was given the disabled room at the end of the corridor because it was free that week which was plenty big enough for 2. Rooms are clean and well presented. Great location, not noisy at all and walking distance to everywhere we wanted to go! Will definitely return!! :)

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.
