We visited the roof bar for drinks in the evening. This was our second visit this last year.The chairs and tables were all wet so I asked if somebody could wipe off a table for four. We purchased our drinks and snacks at the bar and sat down to enjoy. There were max 10 people sitting outside at that time.... More

Located on the eastern side of Barcelona City, its in a relatively new area of Barcelona directly next to the Torre Agbar (Barcelona's Gherkin). Closest metro was Glories on the L1 line. I enjoyed staying here as there is a tram track directly in front of the hotel that takes you to directly past the Parc del Forum. The hotel... More

This hotel is lovely! The reception lady was very welcoming and it was a very modern looking hotel. The room did smell like sewage slightly when we walked in which wasn't pleasant but I later found out that's a problem in the area and not the hotel specifically. Room sizes were decent and clean. Can't complain really! Breakfast was decent,... More

Excellent hotel. The rooms are spacious and clean. The hotel is very well equipped for business meetings. Breakfast is very good with variety of choices.The metro station is 200 m facing the hotel and you need 10 min to reach the Rumbla street by metro. It was a very good stay.

Staying in Poblenou

Neighbourhood Profile
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.
