Super time at the City hotel - we have stayed at other Novotels before as a family (11 and 8 year olds children) and always enjoyed the facilities - this one did not disappoint. Great Breakfast super fresh and excellent friendly staff that were particularly helpful given our split arrival dates and guides to travel around the city. Will definitely...

HOTEL’S FAVOURITE REVIEW
Reviewed 4 weeks ago

We (a family of four) stayed in the hotel during a short summer vacation. It was easy to find by car, as it is located on a major avenue. The location is great as it is very close to public transportation (tram stop just accros the entrance and a subway station , just five mins walk away). The first impression,...

I'm currently staying here and my experience so far is mixed. It's possible to get fairly good room rates here for a 4* hotel, but the "extras" are much too expensive. The breakfast is a ridiculous €19 per person, more than double the price of any other hotel I've stayed in in Spain. And even in the "superior" room there...

We re here for 3 nights and the hotel is clean and beds good but there are little lazy things that do make me cross. The cleaners removed our second room tag from the room but didn't leave it behind,so now we only have 1 room key tag.They haven't replaced disposable cups both in the bathroom or minibar area. I...

Recently stayed here for 4 night's. We had a room on the 18th with floor with an excellent view over the city. Breakfast was decent with a varied selection of hot and cold food, cereals and breads. Enjoyed a few drinks on the rooftop bar whilst watching the sunset. All in all a nice hotel with the city easily accessible...

Nice hotel. We paid extra to get a room at a higher floor, and were lucky to have a view over the Torre Agbar and Sagrada Familia. There are also rooms at these floors that give a view to another high-rise. The rooftop terrace bar is open to all guests, and it is worth going there to relax after a...

Stayed for three nights with hubby and son. Greeted at reception and swiftly I checked in, lollipops given was a pleasant bonus. Beautiful hotel and great location. All the staff we came across were extremely efficient and helpful. Room was spacious and spotless. Attractions within walking distance. Buses and metro right by hotel. Would definitely stay again.

The hotel is really nice when you are in the city for business. It is comfortable, the staff is nice and the breakfast is good. Location: it is far from the most important touristic places. Ok, you can take the metro, but if you want just walk and enjoy the view (night and day) it is not a place to...

My husband and I only stayed 3 nights at the Novotel, but would definitely recommend it. The staff were very helpful, though their english was not the best. But that's OK because my Spanish is non existent. The room was spacious and clean, exactly what I'd expect from a Novotel. The restaurant is also used for breakfast in the morning....

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.
