My boyfriend and I stayed three nights at Melon District. I was immediately impressed on arrival with the pleasant greeting from the Reception staff. A clear explanation of the facilities was provided in English, which was a great help! The room is small, but for a place to sleep and shower after a long day of walking the spectacular streets,...

The hotel location was perfect but the room was a bit too small for 2 persons for the rest everything was perfect.

Cheap and new hostel. Friendly staff but not in a great part of town. Also, promoting the hostel by saying it is close to the beach is probably a bit of a strecth. Still quite a walk and not a charming one at that due to the neighbourhood. The thing we found most negative was the cleaning of the rooms....

We checked in with a large student group and we were quickly greeted by these automatic glass security doors that painfully require your room key to open. The hostel was very modern industrial chic, with lots of concert and metal. The rooms are very very small, so small you have to close the washroom door in order to open the...

We checked in quite late, around 12 in the night. The room felt little cold than outside and we found that the floor was covered with water under the bed. We asked to change our room and luckily we were given bigger and better room. Nice panoramic view from the building terrace. Kitchen facility was good. Clean, cozy room. Bathrooms...

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.
