A fantastic modern apartment with communal swimming pool in the cool area of Poble Nou. Two bedrooms, two bathrooms, a lovely sunny terrace plus great attention to detail along with quality bed and bath linen make for a real luxury experience.
Poblenou enjoys an enviable location; close to the city centre for fast easy and convenient access but far enough away to retain its village-like feel. With three of Barcelona’s beaches it’s a definite contender for a base to stay in Barcelona.
Our apartment is centrally positioned on the top floor of one of Poblenou's well-designed modern residential buildings and provides a great opportunity to stay in a white, light filled penthouse apartment in this newly popular district of Barcelona.
This apartment has a simple symmetrical plan and a modern interior, with wood, white walls and terrazzo flooring. The large open living space has floor to ceiling glazed sliding doors which lead directly onto a private terrace. The central high level terrace is the perfect spot for breakfast lunch or dinner and it faces directly onto the main element of the architects plan - a beautifully maintained secluded interior garden square with children's play area, paddling pool and 18 metre swimming pool.
There are two bedrooms, two en-suite bathrooms, a lounge and a separate kitchen. The bedrooms have 150 and 135 cm double beds and there are two 110 cm wide very comfortable click down sofa beds in the lounge. Most of the bed linen and towels are high thread count, high quality luxurious Egyptian cotton from john Lewis with equally luxurious pillows.
This large apartment is equipped with everything you might need for a fabulous stay in Barcelona and has air conditioning, central heating, free Wi-Fi and free landline national phone calls and incoming calls to help reduce your mobile roaming charges. The apartment has step free access from the street to the apartment and is served by two lifts. There is a day time concierge and public car parking is nearby so this apartment not only provides easy practical access for anyone using a wheelchair or a child's buggy but it also a great place to be once you are inside.
The apartment is both very quiet and very light and is located right next to the delightful tree lined Rambla del Poblenou which is filled with great local shops, cafes, restaurants, and is the heart and social hub of the area…. and best of all, a pleasant stroll down this charming wide walkway brings you directly to one of the city's best sandy beaches. Within a few minutes’ walk you will also find a public sports centre with a well-equipped gym, classes, swimming pools, low cost bike hire, and several supermarkets.
Poblenou has many green spaces a laid back sunny atmosphere and of course the Mediterranean Sea. The area is perfect for anyone who wants a calm local and charming, neighbourhood experience, be close to the beach and yet have quick easy access to the frenzy of the city centre.

There is a dishwasher in the kitchen, we would be most grateful if you could put all your dirty dishes in the machine before you check out and put it on.
Very nice and quiet flat. The Sleeping Roms are perfectly seperated from each other. The terrace is huge, the kitchen well equipped. Everything was very clean and in good shape. Check-in and check were easy. Just better call the concierge instead of sending text-messages, to arrange check-in time. We have been there at the beginning of March.
Einfach genial!!! Dieses Appartement ist wunderschön. Genügend Platz, super ausgestattet, hell und modern. Man fühlt sich super wohl, sehr ruhig gelegen. Tolle Gegend, Einkaufsmöglichkeiten gleich um die Ecke. Der Stadtteil Poblenou mit ihrer Rambla einfach perfekt um tolle Tage in Barcelona zu verbringen. In 20 Minuten ist man zu Fuss am Strand. Fahrradverleih ganz in der Nähe. Ich werde diese Wohnung gerne weiter empfehlen. Eric und sein Team sind super nett!!! Gracias!!
Апартаменты идеально подходят для семьи или двух парт, так как 2 спальни изолированы друг от друга и в каждой комнате своя ванная. Квартира очень уютная. На кухне - все необходимое. Постель - словно облако. Ну и потрясающий большой балкон, на котором мы каждый день завтракали и ужинали.
Nice location and nice, quiet apartment. Check in and Check was perfect.
A perfect base for a stay in Barcelona.
The apartment was absolutely awesome! The shape of the apartment is perfect for couples or families (two bedrooms with seperate bathrooms and a nice living room). The neighbourhood was very family friendly and we had everything we need within a 10 minutes walk (supermarket 5 min, beach 15 min, metro 10 min and about 20 minutes in total to the city center) and there were some supernice restaurants around the corner. We really enjoyed the terrace to have dinner or just sit together. Everything we needed was provided at the arrival like draws, towels and even a more than basic kitchen equipment (we love to cook and found more or less everything we needed).
The pool was also very clean and even had a lifeguard. Further, it was surprisingly big for a privat pool in the middle of a city.
All in all, we can really recommend the aparment as it is situated perfectly between the beach and the city and provides you with everything you need during the stay!
Eine wunderbare Location. Kleiner Fußmarsch zum Strand, kurzer Weg zur Tram, Shopping und Supermarkt direkt um die Ecke. Top gepflegt, toller Pool! Weit haben uns sehr wohl gefühlt und kommen ganz sicher wieder, vielen Dank Eric...:)
Auch für die ganzen Extras....Geburtstagskuchen...etc.
After having to wait a while to be let in, due to some confusion about our arrival time, our friendly concierge let us into the apartment. It was exactly as described in the description.
We regret that you had to wait before check-in. We never wish to cause any inconvenience to our guests and this will help us improve. But as you commented to me privately, I am pleased at how much you enjoyed the flat and the local offerings. We would be happy to welcome you again!

My name is Eric. I am French but have lived in Barcelona since 2007. Before that, I lived in London for 14 years. I love Barcelona and I hope you will love it, too.
I am the proud director of a company that helps Tourist Flat owners with the logistics of their investment (Check-in, Check-out, Cleaning, Maintenance, etc...).
I have my own apartment rental close to Sagrada Familia, too, with 2 bedrooms and 2 shower rooms with toilet.
I hope to welcome you soon!
