Good vfm- good breakfast, few bus stops and a metro station nearby and not too far from Barcenolata beaches and main city tourist attractions. A good choice for a short haul in the city. Friendly staff.

This Holiday Inn Express isn't near the standards what one would expect from this this Brand. They allow smoking in the rooms. This is for the rooms on the 1st floor, hence the whole hotel stinks! They only offer 1 cheap wall attached soap, shampoo, body gel & conditioner in 1 plastic container! They told me they had only single...

Like other guests was slightly worried from the reviews. We had a great stay here, hotel near metro, beach, supermarket, restaurants, shops. The reception staff were great and were more than helpful. Many thanks for all the assistance given in trying to re-book our transfer. Hotel provides a continental breakfast which is more than adequate. Also the reception area offers...

Well sized rooms, ideal location for travel around Barcelona, close to the Metro. Breakfast queues everyday were a little annoying, difficult to find seating during peak times. We found bed bugs in our rooms though, didnt expect it from a global chain of hotels

Staying in Poblenou

Neighbourhood 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 centres 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.
