Very good experience. Very modern lounge and bar. Busy but quiet location. A good 4 star hotel but not really worth prices more than 130 Euros per night.

Excellent experience (compared to subsequent Plaza Mayor in Madrid). Brand new, clean, excellent bathroom, good bed, fridge. The only trivial nit is that the water tends to splash out during shower on the floor -- yes, that's how good a hotel it is. ... But all other reviews say that as well already. A few extra comments on the location:...

Stayed here at an excellent rate in July 2008. Hotel very modern and design conscious, rooms spacious and clean. Roof terrace was lovely for a quiet drink before heading out to dinner or a nightcap - great views. The pool's up there too - small but better than nothing. Location ok, as in its not right in the centre but...

This hotel is very clean, modern and in a good location. It is situated in a 2 min walk to the Glories Metro station on L1 (red line). To get to the hotel, after you exit the metro train, take the right exit of the metro station, turn left when you get out of the station, walk up the steps...

Booked in May for girls only break-had been recommended hotel by colleague. Was a bit unsure after reading some of the reviews but needn't have worried.

We had one big problem with our room which accounts for the neutral rating. If it had been sorted out we would have given it a 4. Check in was quick and friendly and we found the hotel very easily from Glories metro. You can't really miss it as it is next door to Torre Agbar! Room was fine -...

I stayed at this hotel for a business convention from July 5th - 10th 2008. The pluses of my stay were that the location of the hotel was pretty close to the convention center and there was a tram stop right across the street which really helped. I also utilized the hotel dry cleaning service and they were excellent. Other...

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.
