Stayed here for one night on 4 July. Everything went to plan and the hotel is very clean, comfortable rooms and a pleasant buffet breakfast all in the price. I pre booked the car park at the hotel. There is also 3 free computers for internet access. Close to the beach and the tour bus stops, but a good 25... More

this is one of the hotels the touroperator Europamundo has for its tours through Spain. Bad choice after being in better hotels on other cities. Carpet on floors (halls and rooms) very dirty. Breakfast very poor and very poor service. Try different hotel when in Barcelona.

The only reason I took the hotel is to collect points. The paradox is that I didn't get any points while I supposedly had used a discounted rate. The truth is that i booked this rate through the Ichotels website, and have used this rate more often in other hotels in the world. I always got points for it. However... More

We stayed for one night before our cruise departed. It was very nice, clean, and comfortable. Decent location, easy walk to restaurants and the beach. There is a very nice Rambla a block away. We were out past midnight finishing dinner and walking around and felt very safe doing so. My wife's only complaint was the graffitti (sp) on the... More

First off, this hotel is not right in the middle of the action on the Ramblas. Depending on your point of view, this may be seen as positive or otherwise. We have stayed in this neighbourhood before and most certainly will again. The hotel is a 5 minute walk from Lacuna metro which itself is only 4 stops from Ramblas.... More

Standard well run Express by Holiday Inn in a part of Barcelona being redeveloped.Plenty of bars and restaurants a short walk. Metro and buses within 5 minutes.Only drawback was that local metro sataion only had stairs to street - not good if you have suitcases. Well maintained rooms, good breakfast choice, quiet area , friendly staff - very good.

I have recently stayed at Holiday Inn Express in Barcelona. The hotel provides you with the standard Holiday Inn quality. Fairly sized and clean rooms, clean facilities, complimentary tea and coffee in the room. Breakfast is nice, although gets a bit boring after 3 days always having the same choice of food. Staff is polite and helpful, the hotel itself... More

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.
