Poblenou Travelodge: a strategic, but peaceful location

10 minutes from the beach

Planning on topping up your tan whilst you’re in Barcelona? Great news: Poblenou Travelodge is just a 10-minute walk from Mar Bella beach. This is one of the busier beaches, but it’s not as crowded as Barceloneta (which is closest to the city centre).

You’ll find more locals, fewer tourists, and fewer pickpockets.

A seaside quarter

Poblenou is a former industrial quarter. Don’t miss the change to walk along the Rambla del Poblenou, a stone’s throw from the hotel. This busy thoroughfare is packed with restaurants and shops, and is one of the nicest parts of the quarter.

The city centre is easily accessible from Poblenou Travelodge, as there’s a metro station nearby and a bus stop right in front of the hotel.
