Stayed at the Novotel Barcelona city centre for 3 nights ended yesterday and it was ever so good that I can't understand how can people write negative reviews which could put others off. I requested a room on a higher floor and my request was met without any problems or hassle room 1816 on the eighteenth floor with a great...

We (a family of four) stayed in the hotel during a short summer vacation. It was easy to find by car, as it is located on a major avenue. The location is great as it is very close to public transportation (tram stop just accros the entrance and a subway station , just five mins walk away). The first impression,...

I booked the hotel for a birthday break for my husband. The reviews I read were helpful. The location of the hotel is great, public transport outside and within 5 min walk. The journey from the airport was easy. We invested in travel cards for the days we were in Barcelona and would recommend this, as you can use bus,...

Everything was really good instead of some problems with air conditioning. The hotel is located in 500 meters from the Gracia subway station. Sagrada Familia is in walking distance as Park Güell. This is no any problems to reach airport and a city center from the hotel. The service is very good. Because we did not have breakfasts there, I...

Good hotel near underground train station. Situated close to the city centre. Buffet breakfast was good. Rooms are kept clean. Good customer service. It would have been good if they have lounge service for Platinum Member.

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.
