The hotel is very trendy, was a bit concerned about the bathrooms being see-through but it wasn't so much of a problem if you showered with the bathroom light off! The only reason i am not giving 5 stars is because the bathroom door is glass i kept leaving it open but when my friend closed it i bounced off... More

The rooms at this hotel are huge, with tall ceilings and floor to ceiling windows. So comfortable and spacious - now, it is a bit off the beaten track but the tube is a 5 min. walk and cab fair is not at all outrageous to the center of town. We have been throughout Europe and this is still one... More

This hotel is really funky and trendy. Really close to the Glories metro station, the mall across form the hotel is great with supermarket, loads of shops and food options. Maybe not the best to go sightseeing on foot although the Sagrada is quite close. The room was spotless and really modern. The rooftop is great but it was impossible... More

We went to Barcelona for our honeymoon.

I loved staying at Silken. The service is great, the suite we stayed in has windows all over and gives a magnificant view of Barcelona like Gaudi's Sagrada Familia. The hotel is modern and has a roof top pool. The staff is very friendly and the metro is close by. Across the street you will find a shopping centre and... More

Location could be a bit of a problem but worked fine for me as I was in town for meetings nearby (kind of). Hotel is very modern and generally clean. Rain shower is awesome, though the glass walls may be an issue if you are staying with a friend. Service is very good - asked for an iron and got... More

Like the hotel and the pool on the roof but as others mention there is a lack of privacy in the bathroom if you will share rooms. Also the hotel had a incident while staying and the personnel seemed to have no training how to handle things and there was total lack of communication to the guests. Still I'd probably... More

The glass enclosed bathrooms are very dangerous because you cannot see the walls. There is absolutely no privacy while using the sink or shower. The overall property is very nice. This hotel is close to the pier and not at all close to any of the sites of this beautiful city. All of the people, except for the manager in... More

We stayed here in the summer of 2011 during our first visit to Spain. The great thing about this hotel is proximity to the metro and rails. The room was outstanding and the views were very nice.

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.
