The hotel is in perfect location for us, close to metro, beach and supermarket even though it is far out of the main attractions. The staff is are very friendly and helpful. The room was clean and bed is comfortable. Breakfast was great plenty of choices.

The location is perfect, the hotel is very close to the metro and about 1Km to the beach. Many shops around for a good walk or shoping. The room is very nice and the bed is comfortable. Room made is a bit loud in the morning.

The hotel is clean, comfortable, and modern. Beds were comfortable, bathroom was clean, all the appliances worked. There were plenty of outlets, and they had adapters if you needed them. The breakfast was easily the best I've had a Holiday Inn Express-they had an entire breakfast bar with a selection of sliced meats & cheeses, croissants and bread rolls, all...

We stayed at this hotel as a family, with two young boys. The hotel was primarily used as a base whilst we explored Barcelona. The Beds as already stated were hard but they weren't too uncomfortable and we all managed good sleep. All of the staff were helpful and friendly and gave a free map. Breakfast queues were good, probably...

We had read reviews complaining about noisy rooms and thin walls,and as it turned out those things were true. The Hotel is located in a not so great locality, though you do have bus stops and a metro stop fairly close by. They offer a fairly unremarkable breakfast buffet, and the seating area can get very crowded if you get...

The hotel rooms are nice, modern and spacious. Booking was fine online but a bit random when asking the hotel directly for interconnecting rooms. Breakfast was a shocker, even when it is quiet there are still queues due to the layout of the food, you literally have to form a single queue and wait while people make toast, get coffee....

Stayed here for two nights during xmas. Really efficient/kind staff but really worn out facilities. The worst holiday inn I've ever stayed in in terms of cleanliness due to the age of the hotel. Location feels really remote but make sure you walk 5 min. to La Ramba in poble nou so you realise it's not actually quite in the...

Nice hotel within 20 min cycling of city center. Neat and clean rooms and friendly staff (no safes in the room). My advice is not to book breakfast at the hotel but have breakfast just outside the hotel in a nice coffee bar or just go to city center. At some times it is too busy to have breakfast....

We stayed at holiday inn express for a couple of vacation days in Barcelona, we were surprised by how old and worn down the hotel is, even though I was expecting that after reading the reviews. It's a run down hotel, no noise isolation, woke up when each person in the neighboring rooms talked or closed/opened doors.. that sucks especially...

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.
