The hotel, staff and breakfast are very nice - I would give them a 5. However, the bathroom is made of glass walls, there is very limited privacy. To leave a light on in the toilet at night meant there was light in the bedroom too. Not sure who designed this? Also, I would have preferred to stay in an...

Stayed here for a week while attending an Expo at CCIB. It is very well located and fairly priced! Reception and bar staff are amazing. My room was very well maintained by housekeeping. Breakfast is a choice of continental or hot selections which were lovely! If you plan to dine in the restaurant for dinner then I advise you avoid...

This is a good hotel if you are staying for business or one night. There are tour buses (Grayline, Hop on Hop Off) across the street and the metro right outside. The rooms are modern. Our room looked out to the water tower which is lit up at night and can be seen all over Barcelona - beautiful. However, if...

We had a great pre cruise stay in this hotel. The staff were exceptionally pleasant and helpful. The rooms were spotless and well appointed. This is a modern hotel with all the amenities we expect these days. The corridor lighting is dim but trendy!!

This is a good, basic, hotel that is budget friendly. The location is close to the tram and metro which will get you to all the major sights including the the Olympic Village, the Gothic Quarters, La Rambla, and the Convention Center. The breakfast buffet was convenient and tasty. The rooms are small by US standards but average for Europe....

The Hotel is located a bit outside the City. Only a few stops with the Metro and you are in the heart of Barcelona. The Hotel itself wasnt all that 4 Stars.

Had a two night stay. Check in and departure was very easy and straightforward. Rooms were clean and modern however if you like your privacy when washing maybe you should stay elsewhere.

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.
