This hotel is exccellent. Staff very helpful and friendly. Food at breakfast was great. The coffee was excellent (wish I knew what kind they use, I haven't been able to equal the taste here in Texas). The rooms are very spacious. The cafes and stores around the hotel are great. Thank you for a great experience we will be staying...

Excellent staff. Good breakfast (to avoid rush hour recommended). I didn't see the restaurant as mentioned in TripAdvisor. Parking on street is quite easy, for free during weekends. Although it seems an industrial zone, live is only 2 streets far. Convenient metro station at 8-10 minutes walking,so it's very easy to get to the city center.

Very cut and dry hotel. The rooms are basic with no amenities. The only item hot in breakfast is the beverages. Saving grace is the beautiful street Rambla Poblenou which is less than 100 meters.. And in about a kilometer of walk along this street you reach the beautiful beachfront. It's away from city but you can pick up a...

Not a bad location, about 7 minute walk from the metro. Beware, there are several stair climbing inside the metro system, so if you have luggage, it may be a problem. Now back to the hotel…The breakfast is exactly what you will find in a North American HI Express establishment. Staffs are not super friendly, but will answer any questions...

This is not a luxury 5 star hotel but you get what you pay for. Check in staff a bit unfriendly but other reception staff (Jordi?) made up for it. Free wifi for loyalty card holders.

We have stayed in the Holiday Inn Express in Barcelona in the Rambla Poblenou neighborhood twice. The property gives good value for the euro, with a nice continental breakfast in a sunfilled room. The hotel rooms are a little small but adequate and nice for the price. The hotel is located adjacent to the Rambla Poblenou which has a variety...

The poor hotel is more tired than I was. All public areas and my room are worn, broken or tired. The receptionist was friendly on check in and helpful which was the saving grace. Time for a refurb I think

Staff were nice, and allowed us to check in early. Clean and quite room with all the necessary facilities. A bit far from the city center, but easy enough to find, about 5 minutes walk from the Metro as advertised in their website. Breakfast was standard and sufficient.

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.
