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.
My wife and I spent two weeks staying in the El Poblenou district of Barcelona.
It was nice to be somewhere not too central and touristy but at the same time, just 15 minutes from the centre of Barcelona by metro.
El Poblenou can be characterised by its beachfront and Rambla, I can imagine living here would feel like being...
"Interesting main street through the Poblenou district"
reviewed 5 days ago by ConsumerBloke
My wife and I stayed at the Holiday Inn Express in the Poblenou district and it's almost impossible to get anywhere without walking through the Rambla del Poblenou.
It's like a little sister to Las Ramblas in the city centre and far less touristy as a result.
In fact, it was great to still have this pretty street so near...
Really great beach.
Easy to get to in walking distance from the nearby hotels. Facilities here are very good, toilets, bars, volleyball nets, showers, deckchairs (at a cost) and not too far from other eateries.
Minus the beach sellers it was very good.
the place isn’t very big and it looked very original! Nicely displayed. Delicious food, friendly staff who really wanted us to have a great evening! Loved it. Thank you for all your help in our holiday choices.
First time visit to Barcelona and was not sure where to eat. Came across this place sat right on the beach! Amazing atmosphere, food and service! Was served by a lovely man named Felipe! Will definitely return!
Really great breakfast. We ordered a flat which which was delicious and I ordered the eggs royale which was perfect together with the most amazing potatoes- they were to die for! My boyfriend ordered the pulled pork pancakes and said this was the best breakfast he ever had. Would definitely recommend!
Stayed here for 3 nights post our cruise. Loved every minute of it from the check-in and glass of champagne, to the aptly furnished rooms.
Our room had amazing views and indeed we could see La Sagrada Familia.
Breakfast was buffet style but they concentrated on quality rather quantity which was perfect. Reception and concierge staff went above and beyond....
A comfortable base for a one week holiday in Barcelona. Around 30-40m walk from the main attractions and 20m from the beach. Right next to the Glòries Mall that has a big Carrefour and food court with lots of options. The hotel would benefit from getting new towels and upgrading the phones, and making sure that the electric plugs work...
Edward’s honest and true review
Good hotel but the room was small with little in the way of sound proofing,we could have heard a pin drop in the next room.The on line check in was impossible to achieve and when we phoned the help line the best they could do was advise text customer service to have points added, we...
The hotel was really nice and designed with a god taste. The location wasn't that good, yet there was a few good restaurants in the area and the beach was very close. If you wanted to visit the highlights, Sacrada, Rambla etc it took appr. 45 minutes walk. The rooms were very spacious!
Stayed in this lovely hotel for a 5 day break. Lovely friendly staff, clean rooms and super comfy beds. The location is ideal close to llacuna metro station and poblenou is a lovely area closeby with bars and restaurants. Thanks for a lovely break.
