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

Breakfast is cold continental, you can...

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.

Remembered why I hate Holiday Inn Express hotels when staying here...every one I've ever stayed in has hot water in the bathroom sink but try and get better than lukewarm for a bath or shower and you're wasting your time. Hotel was ok other than that although some of the hall carpets were badly stained. Continental buffet breakfast was good....

Exactly what you would expect from a Holiday Inn express! Clean, confortable and good value for money. Continantal Open buffet breakfast that was a bit over crowded! the doenside is that it's a little bit far from the city center, but it's about 4 stops by subway which is a couple of blocks from the hotel.

Typical Holiday Inn express, good rooms with brf is basically what you expect. A bit far from the city center but subway station is in two blocks. It's also not far from the beach about 10-15 min. walk. Worth for money

You will have to take the Aerobus from the airport to plaza de catalunya then you take the metro from their to urquinaona station and you change the line...

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.
