Being here for a long weekend citytrip. Our room had an excellent kingsize bed which gave an absolute brilliant night rest. The curtains can be closed by a remote control and will give you the perfect shade how ever you wish it will be. The hotel has some design elements in lobby and restaurant. Rooms are spacious enough and do...

If you are shy or very "private" with regard to you body, this is NOT the place for you. If you want a "unique" hotel experience, centrally located in the heart of Barcelona right next to the famed Torre Agbar and minutes away from the Sagrada Familia, this place is great! As expected, friendly staff, helpful Concierge, wonderful views from...

One week stay with wife and two teenagers. Comfortable. Right beside a metro station and Torre Agbar. Adequate nearby places for breakfast. Rooftop pool area barely worth using, better taking the tram to the beach if you want a splash!

My husband and I stayed here for 2 nights in April 2012 during our visit in Barcelona. Nothing special that I could recall. The room size is OK, bathroom is OK, toiletries OK. But no kettle or complimentary drink. This is annoying as i would like to have a cup of tea when I get back into the hotel. But...

We stayed at the Silken Diagonal for 3 nights. First impressions were good, the hotel is ultra modern in style and leaves you feeling like you are staying in a huge art installation! This is carried over into the rooms which are minimalist yet luxurious and comfortable. However, style often wins over practicality. The bathroom is a case in point...

Where shall I begin? This will be kept short and simple, overall I can't complain about the hotel; *Approx 1 minute to the metro station *Close surrounding to a supermarket and various restaurants *25 minutes walk from the beach *Staff are friendly and English spoken However there are certain things that they can improve on. For example, we stayed in...

The hotel is very trendy, was a bit concerned about the bathrooms being see-through but it wasn't so much of a problem if you showered with the bathroom light off! The only reason i am not giving 5 stars is because the bathroom door is glass i kept leaving it open but when my friend closed it i bounced off...

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.
