Avinguda Diagonal, 205, 08018 Barcelona

Welcome to The Hoxton, Poblenou. We’re so pleased you’re here and hope you have fun exploring all the gems in our neighbourhood and beyond.

To make sure you get the most out of your trip, we’ve put together this handy Survival Guide covering all the bits and bobs that you might need whilst you’re with us. From getting around town to last orders at the bar, it’s all here, laid out nice and easy.

And if there’s anything you need, just dial 0 on the phone and we’re here, day and night.

In the neighbourhood

We’re pleased to call Poblenou our home. One of our favourite corners of Barcelona, here you’ve got it all, with the sights and the sea in easy walking distance, as well as a homegrown creative scene and a more local way of life to dip in and out of.

Poblenou was established as a thriving district during the industrial revolution, when textile mills and factories were built here and the neighbourhood was forever woven into the history of the city. In recent years, it’s evolved again. The 22@ District urban regeneration project has seen the old factories and mills converted into artist studios, galleries, restaurants and art schools, breathing fresh life into the neighbourhood and establishing it as one of the most cultural districts of the city.

Rise and shine, breakfast time

For just €5 per person, we’ll fill up your breakfast bag (the one that’s on your desk) with a light breakfast so it’s ready to tuck into when you roll out of bed. Just fill in the details and pop it on the hook outside your door before you go to bed.

For more, head down to Four Corners for coffee, pastries, hot plates and more, or hit 150 on the phone and we’ll bring it right up.


Here’s a little heads up about pool bookings: Pool space, sunbeds, cabanas and tables around the pool are only for the use of hotel guests like you until 7pm.

The pool opens at 7am and you can go up and sit anywhere without booking until 10am when TOPE opens. After that you can reserve a 2.45-hour slot per guest or group (10am to 12.45pm, 1pm to 3.45pm or 4pm to 6.45pm).

Reservations can be made in the week for the week before your check-in and are on a first come first serve basis.

There is a minimum spend of 50€ to book a sunbed and 100€ to book a cabana (4 persons max.) To book, please drop an email to

Hox Shop

In front of the front desk, you’ll find our Hox Shop where you can buy beers, wines, soft drinks and snacks at supermarket prices to stash in your fridge (the water and milk are on us). You can also purchase our Blank body products and Hox mugs, so you can take a bit of The Hox home with you, as well as a selection of gifts and wares from our fave local makers.

Hox Experience

We’re big on community, and love to support and showcase the good and the great in our neighbourhoods. From events and workshops, to exhibitions, pop-ups and collabs with others in the community, there’s always something going on! Keep an eye on our socials to see what’s on, or ask one of the team while you’re with us.
