Never having been to Barcelona before we were a bit in the dark as to where to stay. After some reviews and research we plumped for here. This was a good choice if you are looking for a budget Travelodge equivalent type of stay. Three major advantages: 1) rooms have air con 2) continental breakfast is included, eat as much... More

Nice hotel in a calmer area of Barcelona. A bit far away of the airport about 30 min 40 euros. Rooms good size. Very close to a street full of restaurants abd coffee shops. Good free internet and good service at the reception.

My mum and I booked this last minute as part of a British airways deal. Great value, good transport links, nice breakfast and polite staff. Would recommend this hotel to other travellers. Be early for breakfast as after 8.30am the que can take around 10 mins to get through whole buffet bar

A good location within walking distance to many restaurants in Rambla del Poblenou. It is away from the more touristy areas so you do get to see the local out and about-if that is what you are looking for. Clean and large rooms enough for a family of 4. Within walking distance to beach which was good for kids. Breakfast... More

The quality of Holiday Inn Express hotels, everywhere in the world, seems to be consistently good. I stayed here for 3 nights in Sept 2016. This hotel is fairly conveniently located, within 5 minutes walk of the metro and 15 minutes' walking distance of the beach and some historic parts of town. There is a grocery store, a small shopping... More

Overnight stay before going on a Cruise. Reception Staff very friendly and very helpful. Only on type of beer on draught and small selection of bottled beers. Rooms very good, comfortable beds. Breakfast is continental style. Not many other facilities near by so be prepared to walk or go on the Metro trains.

The location was good, walking distance to Diagonal, where there is a Carrefour that is enormous. It felt empty in the neighborhood, but crowded in the hotel. The room was fine, no view but enough room for a family of four. There were so many kids, including ours, I guess due to Disney Cruise. Breakfast was a zoo and we... More

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.
