Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Jimbo Billy Bob Great Non-City Center Location
This is a great location if you are not interested in the city center. I enjoyed the quiet location but could easy get to the noisy center.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Lady Margot Poor Service and assistance
Room without shower cap, without safe. Some people of the staff no English speaking. I needed to iron my dress and I had to come to reception to fetch iron and ironing board myself because staff was not available to do it even if there were two people at least at reception and when I went there they were not busy. The worst is that the morning after I received a call from reception as they wanted me to bring back iron and ironing board, regardless I had two cases. I will definitively try to avoid this hotel in the future. Then wifi was not free different lay from many holiday inn where i stay. And i have the membership card.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Weltenbummler2014 verlängertes Wochenende mit Komfort
Das Hotel ist mit den öffentlichen Verkehrsmitteln sehr gut erreichbar; nach 10 Minuten Fußweg erreicht man den Stadtstrand mit seinen vielfältigen Möglichkeiten. Das Hotel ist modern; die Zimmer sind ruhig und komfortabel; das Frühstück ist im Vergleich zu anderen Holiday Inn Express Hotels abwechslungsreicher.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by BigBadJohn2 Nice Hotel and staff in Barcelona
We recently spend 2 night a this Hotel. The staff was very friendly and accommodating. They have a nice Breakfast Buffett and a pretty convenient location. We travelled by car and thus, it was nice that the Hotel had indoor parking. We would stay there again if and when the opportunity arises.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Mawb Early checkin
We had a trans Atlantic flight arriving in the morning. I called to see if we could get early check-in. I was told it wasn't guaranteed but our luggage could be dropped off so we could tour Barcelona. We were surprised and delighted that our room was ready when we arrived and we were able to clean up and take a little rest before our tour. It made a huge difference and we appreciate the early check in.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by pahadoc Perfect choice for the short stay
I attended to the scientific conference near Barcelona and took my family (my wife and 8 - y.o. son) with me. We decided to spend a one day in Barcelona before leaving Spain. We chose this hotel because very attractive price/level balance and we were not disappointed about this decision. The hotel is very easy to reach by public transport, about 5-10 min walk from a metro station. The facilities are good and the hotel is quiet. The receptionists were very polite and extremely helpful, especially , I wanted to thank you the guy who was on duty during our stay, Ricardo, I suppose (but not sure) - very good English, very informative and helpful. The rooms are good for a short stay. The breakfast is simple, and maybe there were too many people for the small place, it looked a little bit overcrowded - but not too much to disturb us. Very good - in total

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by FSGBCN21 One to avoid
This hotel simply does not live up to the standard of other HIE hotels.
There is a real problem in the staff and management's attitude in dealing with genuine complaints: we had booked and emailed the hotel in advance requesting a smoking double room... we were allocated a non-smoking room away from the lifts and after much complaining we were offered a twin room next to the lifts. After much more complaining, they offered to join the beds... not exactly comfortable. On arrival in the room there were discarded tissues under the bed from the previous occupant, there was no kettle in the room and the aircon did not work.
the last straw was that when we asked to speak to the manager she stayed in her office (we could see her through the glass) and refused to deal with us directly. Instead she relied on the senior receptionist to deal with us as the 'novice' receptionist whom we dealt with at first (she advised us to go to the lift to reach our room when the room was actually on the same level as the reception... something I knew as I had stayed at the hotel before... BUT she insisted that we had to use the lift).
Beyond the problems with the room allocation and the state of the room there is a serious shortcoming in terms of staff and management attitude...
Hence, beware and avoid!

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by wayahead Good value but limited storage
The hotel is not far from a Metro station and near to a Rambla where there are good restaurants, to the east of the city. Otherwise the area looks run-down because of an empty development site opposite, graffiti tagged. It is a little far out but not too inconvenient.
Access by car to the front of the hotel to drop off and pack luggage is blocked all the time by waiting taxis in the road.
Reception and bar staff were helpful. Public areas are noisy.
Ice dispenser and snacks in a machine are available.
Three good and fast lifts.
Rooms sparsely fitted, lacking drawer space and just a couple of shelves. We had to keep our clothes in our suitcases.
No access to terraces for smokers, only the street outside.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Emperorbilius Very good hotel, clean, friendly and efficient.
The hotel was very good, situated near many good eating establishments, a short walk to the main transport network, tram, buses and tour buses nearby. All in all a very enjoyable stay in a beautiful city.
Some fabulous architecture all around, near enough to the beach and with many great attractions all on the doorstep.

Very enjoyable stay. Hotel staff, Monica and Miquel were very polite, helpful, efficient and attentive to our needs. Great location for shopping, restaurants, groceries. Beach was a five minute walk and was worth the time to see. Would definitely recommend this property to anyone visiting Barcelona. My wife and I were here for a cruise. There is a lot to see and experience just around the hotel area and La Rambla Poblenou. Felt very comfortable just walking around the area.

A great break, short or long, we like Holiday Inn anyway so were even happier when we realised the location was close to the Poble Nou Rambla with great local shops and places to eat and drink, it also leads direct to the beach, brilliant, highly recommended.

It would be nice if you would possibly consider adding some hot foods to your breakfast solutions. Scrambled eggs and bacon are easy to prepare and can be maintained on a steam table. It would also be very nice if you had the availability of an ice bucket in the guest rooms.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by EilMan Komfortabler Familienurlaub
Der äußere Eindruck darf nicht abschrecken. Das Hotel wird vom Service exzellent geführt. Die Räumlichkeiten sind im guten Zustand und sauber. Von den anderen Gästen Haben wir in den Zimmern nichts mitbekommen. Das Frühstücksbüffet war einfach aber lecker und ausreichend. Das Beste ist die Lage zur Rambla (nicht zu verwechseln mit der in der Innenstadt) die schön ruhig und noch nicht so überlaufen ist. Man ist zu Fuß in 15 Minuten am Strand und die U-Bahn, barrierefrei, in 5-10 Minuten. Wir kommen wieder.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Dhez-Chris14 Recommendable and great staff
My husband and I had a great time during our stay. Just a walking distance to the metro train where you can go any where you want. 10 mins walk to Mediterranean Sea if you are a beach lover. I love the fact too that theirs restaurants just around the corner, supermarket, shopping store. After a long day of touring we did rested comfortably plus a good selection of breakfast. This hotel is highly recommendable you won't regret it.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by kexonma Quite an remote corner of Barcelona City
The breakfast did not provide any salad, mainly meaty cuisine. Food were not labelled until 15 minutes after commencement of breakfast time.
Not even complimentary email was provided in the lobby, other Holiday Inns in Spain provided complimentary wi-fi in room for convenience. Wi-fi has become a standard feature for most hotels in the world, at least i the lobby. The paid Wi-fi speed was so slow that it takes 10-15 minutes to upload a file of less than 1M!

Im Großen und Ganzen ein ordentlicher und gepflegter Aufenthalt.
Natürlich gibt es immer etwas zu kritisieren. In diesem Fall war
die Matratze ziemlich durchgelegen, die Federn machten Geräusche
beim Umdrehen im Schlaf, aber das kann vorkommen bei einer
Noch einen Punkt möchte ich anmerken: Beim Frühstück war es
sehr unruhig, man kann es auch Hektik nennen.
Ansonsten in Relation alles akzeptabel und okay.

Overall we had a good stay, and the staff were very friendly and helpful
Only negative was the breakfast. It was always very busy and there was not much choice. Coffee was not good and always had scummy froth on top. The coffee machines just really need a good clean!

I had a two night stay in this Holiday express, it was excellent.
Rooms were very clean and very brightly decorated.
Every member of staff I found very helpful and willing to go the extra mile to be very supportive.
Breakfast was great and set you up for the busy day ahead.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Snoopy one Good hotel - poor beds
This hotel is clean; the staff are friendly and helpful and the facilities are what one expects from a HI Express. However, the beds are far too hard and I had an uncomfortable, broken night's sleep. I shall not stay there again.

Absolut nicht empfehlenswert, mieses Frühstück-schlechte Qualität, lustlose Mitarbeiter, laute Gäste die einen angenehmen Aufenthalt nicht ermöglichten (mitten in der Nacht laute Parties)-die Mitarbeiter hat es aber trotz Information darüber nicht besonders interessiert. Lobby, Bar und Eingangsbereich dreckig und Möbel lieblos dahingestellt.
WLAN funktionierte während unseres 3 tägigen Aufenthaltes absolut nicht-und es machte auch nicht den Anschein als würde sich jmd darum kümmern, geschweige denn interessieren.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by SekharReddy happy to stay again
Travel: 20min taxi from Airport costed about 34euro's. ( for family of 2 or morel taxi is best option ).
Stay: 4 nights in March 14 with family ( 2+1)
Favorite Things: a) Beach front which is only 5 minutes walk and very nice when compared to tourist magnet Barcelonetta beach (which is more crowded and dirty.)
b) EL 58 Tapas restaurent on Rambla de Pablenou ( next road). Very nice and simply loved the food.
Service: The gentlemen at reception is really helpful directing where to get Dalsya ( spanish equivalent of Ibuprofen ) at 2 AM when my little one suddently had high temperature middle of night.
Good continental breakfast and over all very happy for the price paid and the service and member points received

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by inco67 Good hotel with very comfortable rooms
We stayed 5 days in this hotel (2 adults and 2 children) in a family room. The hotel is located about 250 meters from the nearest metro Llacuna, close to the "Rambla del mar" where there are bars and restaurants. The hotel is very nice and modern. Our room was comfortable for two adults and two children even if not great. The only drawback: a bit of dust on the shelves after the first few days, otherwise very comfortable and quiet. Breakfast very plentiful and varied, served in a very nice and bright hall. A perfect hotel for a family vacation!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Tapirro Really good hotel in Barcelona
Holiday Inn Express was the cheapest "normal" hotel in Barcelona. Price for the room for 3 persons with breakfast, in Barcelona, is more than suitable. When I was reading other opinions, I had a little bit doubts. You have to remember that this is Holiday Inn Express, not a Inter Continental or other premium hotel from IHG group. So do not expect super central location, swimming pool and luxurious rooms - you are not paying for that! Barcelona 22 is new looking hotel, with good size of the rooms. They are clean and quite modern. Breakfast was typical continental one, but with a lot of diverse foods. Windows however were not 100% soundproof. What you can improve? Looking very carefully, you can see here and there a little bit of limescale. And please install toilet brush!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Simcn Great Service, restaurants nearby and fantastic location for jogging
The staff here offers great service. On arrival , the staff at reception briefed me on the surrounding restaurants and nearby public transport.
Rambla del Poblenou is just around next block and is a great place for all varieties of dining - chinese food, spanish food, pubs etc
My early mornings (due to jet lag) are spent running to Rambla del Poblenou , along seaviews of Port Olympic to Port del Mar.
Free breakfast lacks variety however I enjoyed the quietness and solitude of starting breakfast earlier than scheduled time.
Small room, very basic amenities, facilities and atmosphere. Would be unfair to comment as this hotel cannot be compared to much costlier 5-star hotels.

We really enjoyed our stay in this hotel, it's close to Llacuna metro where it can take you to the city or even to the famous las ramblas within 10-15 mins,, the hotel is in a vicinity of restaurants and bars which is just around the corner, just please be very careful with pick pocketers,we met few locals and warn us to be very careful with our bag,wallet and specially our mobile phones, Barcelona is well know for this so please be alert,.this hotel is highly recommended and we will come back again, the service is excellent and the room is clean and tidy, breakfast is excellent and it's really value for money
