It is easy to get from Barcelona airport to Clot Arago station. It is then only one metro stop back to Glories Metro which is an easy walk from the Novotel. The cheapest way to do this is on a T-10 ticket which will also work for the tram outside the hotel to go to the beach. Our room was... More

It's been a while since I've stayed at a Novotel. I liked it then and I liked it now. The hotel is very nice and clean, the service excellent, the room perfect. Everything in good working order. The service at the restaurant was a bit slow the only time I dined there, but the breakfast was excellent. The location is... More

We arrived earlier than the check in time but were able to check in fairly quickly. The room was fresh and modern with a great view of the Torre Agbar. Only a 5 minute walk from Glories metro station and a 20 minute walk to the Sagrada Famila / La Ramblas. These were only a 5 minute tube ride otherwise.... More

I have stayed at this hotel recently and they have free internet access (Wi-Fi). If you are going to use only the internet, the speed of connection is fast enough. On the other hand, if you need to establish a VPN connection with your company, the speed of connection is quite slow. I requested a faster connection option (even if... More

I booked this hotel for a week for me and my family (Wife and two children 7yrs and 9yrs) we had visited Barcelona before so knew roughly the location. It is a little out of the main area but is only a long walk or five minutes on the metro or tram, there are stations for both just outside. That... More

Just perfect city hotel. Great location, very easy to go around the city as there are tram and metro stations and the tourist buses are passing just in front of the hotel the whole day and there is a big shopping centre just opossite the hotel.

Public transport access to the Hotel is reasonably easy from the airport. You can take the airport train to Clot station (El Clot Arago) direct and takes around 30 mins. The station is near the hotel about 10 mins walk away. There is a closer Metro station just a few mins from the Hotel called Glories and there is also... More

Excellent hotel and a good service, but pay very atention to the pickpockets at the Glòries metro station and at the Glòries comercial center. The city of Barcelona it is not handling very well with the pickpockets problem.

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.
