The Silken Diagonal Barcelona is located around 3km from the main rambla. Tram station just in front, with a big shopping centre with food and shops. The room was really nice, it's a design hotel and very quite at night, good for a night sleep after long walks in the city centre. Just on one side of the hotel, there...

After surfing 4 hours on the net, we decided to choose this hotel. Lke others have written, great location, close to a medium shopping center with Carrefour supermarket. Close to subway and tram. Beds are a bit firm and only 2 pillows are provided. More can be obtained if required. Shower is tricky to use, do NOT put your towels...

Super modern hotel. Absolutely loved our stay there! We stayed one night after the cruise, did so much sightseeing on the cruise that we just decided to go shopping in the nearby shopping centre for the day. But I'd say it really convenient to go sightseeing from the hotel, as the metro is just a few steps from the hotel....

This place has some very unique selling points that one has to really explore a lot to get. I shall keep this short an to the point: 1.

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.
