A charming apartment in Poble Sec, definitely one of the nicest neighborhoods of Barcelona.

THE LOCATION: POBLE SEC
An ideally oriented Barcelona neighbourhood, Poble-Sec is located directly between the Montjuic Mountain and Las Ramblas
Because Poble Sec is a nice residential area just outside the gothic quarter, it is quieter than the city center and still only a 10-15 minute walk from Las Ramblas and Plaza Catalunya. It is the perfect choice if you want to be centrally located and, at the same time, away from the crowds of tourists that are found in other parts of the city.
Poble Sec is also the place in Barcelona for the lover of fine food. With lots of great bars and restaurants that are local gems and have not been discovered by the average tourist, in Poble Sec you can feel like a true “Barcelonés” and dine like a king for a reasonable price.
There are a lot of things to do in the area of Montjuic Poble Sec, you will discover an amazing view of the entire city and the Mediterranean on a beautiful ¨green walk¨ with fresh air and some amazing parks and gardens. A few other cool thing to check out in the Montjuic Mountain area are the Fundació Joan Miró, the Estadi Olímpic Lluis Companys, the Jardi Botànic de Barcelona, The Museu Nacional d’Art de Catalunya, the free museum at the Caixa Forum and the famous Magic Fountains of Montjuic – a water and light show choreographed to music played over loudspeakers that attracts more than 2.5 million visitors per year.
These are only a few of the many reasons why Poble-sec is a perfect place to stay while visiting Barcelona. You can both observe and feel a part of the real life of the Barcelona locals and with a very short walk take advantage of some of the fabulous tourist attractions that Barcelona has to offer… also, if it’s your thing, you will end up in the middle of some of the biggest parties in the city.
Do not forget to check out the guide of the neighborhood that I leave here, update it often so you have more places to enjoy your stay.

Cryst was an amazing host. We arrived to Barcelona at 1:30am on a Monday night and she meet up at the studio right away. Perfect location and great place to see the city for the first time!
Cryst a été très arrangeante puisqu'elle nous a pris nos bagages le matin de notre arrivé en attendant qu'elle nous donne les clés (vers 14h).
L'appartement correspondait parfaitement à l'annonce.
L'appartement est situé à 100 mètres du métro Para-lel ce qui facilite grandement les visites.
Je recommande cette appartement sans hésiter
Cryst was always very responsive in a short time and made the effort to satisfy the guests.Thank you
That was a great time in a cosy studio near El Molino. Cryst welcomed us with a cheerful smile and Spanish greetings... and that was only the beginning. She was really helpful with getting all stuff regarding the public transport and places worth seeing in the first place. The great guide and the great host. Thanks, Cryst!
Living in such a place is a great opportunity to have almost all amenitities in the close neighbourhood: metro and bus station, markets, theaters, Rambla and so on. The kitchen, bathroom and, let's say, bedroom area are well furnished. The apartment is only 190 cm high, so I had to be carefull all the time, but I didn't get any headache :)

Cryst was a fabulous host. Directions to her apartment from the airport was clear. Upon arrival, she met us to pass us the keys. She was very friendly and helpful, promptly replying our text if we had any questions. Her apartment was clean and tidy. Low ceiling, but no issues. La Rambla and other attractions were within walking distance. My husband and I had a great stay in Barcelona. Thank you!
My boyfriend and I met Cryst outside of El Molino, and she promptly took us to the apartment and showed us the basics. The apartment is very close to the subway, and in a good location. However, then we ran into some problems.
As others have commented, the ceilings are quite low and the street the apartment faces onto is noisy (you are only a half level up from the street).
Most notably, one of the deciding factors for us to rent this listing was there being a washing machine included in the amenities (we were travelling for weeks and thus needed to do laundry at certain locations) After settling in, we couldn't find the machine, and emailed Cryst. She danced around the issue and told us, "I regret the inconvenience with laundry service, as long as rented the apartment is the first time that this problem arises, (you can read the previous reviews) the washing machine is broken and that's not unexpected."
I do not understand how the issue was not to be unexpected, since it was listed as a working washing machine in her post. If there was no washing machine listed, we would've rented from another host. After a few more emails, she agreed to reimburse us for the inconvenience - however, after over two weeks later, she has not yet done so. This is not acceptable.
As we were only staying in Barcelona for a short period of time, a few hours of our time was unfortunately spent in a laundromat, when we could've been out exploring the city. I do not appreciate this type of treatment from an airbnb host, and am very disappointed with this experience. Airbnb functions on mutual trust, and this was not upheld.
The location is excellent and really close to a nice area, Blai, with bars and excellent cuisine. The apartment is clean and cozy and you have pretty much everything you need. If you are really tall, you have to be a bit careful, but other than that everything is fine! We had a great stay and Chryst was a lovely host!
