The Holiday Inn Express - Poblenou is a nice, newer hotel located in an up and coming part of Barcelona which is experiencing tremendous redevelopment.  It's located about halfway between the beach and the main thoroughfare Avinguda Diagonal which are each just a short walk away.  Additionally, the Llacuna metro stop is only about 2 blocks away and the Rambla...

Excellent staff, good variety of food for breakfast (including quaffable orange juice and tortilla), good sized room (including a bath in a HI Express!!!), close to Llacuna Metro stop, Poblenou Rambla is nearby with excellent bars and restaurants, and close to the beach. What more could you ask for?

As stated in other reviews there is major construction in the area with lots of noise. When we tried our AC it did not work. Called front desk and they said that the AC had not been turned on yet! So we opened the window and let in more loud noise. Room was nice and front desk staff were very...

Hi Steven W, Thank you for posting a candid feedback from your recent stay with us. It is great to know that you were able to appreciate the service provided by our front desk staff and the condition of our room.

First of all I want to say that all comments about location and outside noise I read before booking a room in this hotel are true to fact. It wasn't easy to find its location when we just arrived (although it' 5 minute walk from the nearest metro station) but few days later we could do it easily. The noise...

Was a bit concerned having read the mixed reviews of previous guests, however i shouldn't have worried. The hotel is in a great location with plenty of cafes and restaurants just around the corner. There is a supermarket at the end of the road and a childrens' park on the way. The hotel was clean and tidy and our room...

This hotel is situated a 4 minutes walk from the Llacuna Metro station. The area is not the nicest in Barcelona, but was quiet and we did not experience any problems at all walking to and from the hotel. The receptionist was very helpful and the check-in was fast. The hotel room was ok. The bed was comfortable and the...

Our party of 5 persons from Australia stayed at Holiday Inn Express for 6 nights across 2 rooms. The hotel is in a great location and close to the metro, and a pleasant stroll to the beach. It was nice to be slightly out of the tourist area and be amongst the local Spanish people. What really makes this hotel...

Booked this hotel for a short business trip and have to say that it was perfect for a short stay. Rooms were spacious enough, free wifi was working fine in the room. Hotel staff was very nice. Would definitely book again.

Staying in Poblenou

Neighbourhood Profile
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.
