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 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!
The reservation was canceled 120 days before arrival. This is an automated posting.
Cryst była bardzo miła i pomocna. Dotarliśmy dość późno, ale nie stanowiło to dla niej żadnego kłopotu. Mieszkanie było bardzo czyste i praktycznie urządzone. Kuchnia wyposażona. Może tylko warto byłoby wspomnieć, że wysokość sufitu to ok. 180-190cm :-(. Dla większych osób trochę mało miejsca pod prysznicem. Wszystko rekompensuje lokalizacja. Do metra 100m, na La Rambla ok. 10-15 min pieszo, do Kolumba tyle samo. Ok 200m do ulicy z knajpkami, gdzie piwo i tapas bez (website hidden) obiad warto się wybrać w okolice (website hidden) de B z pollo tzatziki, albo Kiosko z super burgerami. Polecamy lokal - idealny na bazę wypadową.
Appartamento fantastico! Ci ha accolti una ragazza di noma Maria molto gentile e ci ha portati all'appartamento! Corrisponde al 100% alle foto ed è molto bello e confortevole. Pulitissimo con all'interno tutto l'occorrente possibile: phon, asciugamani, lenzuola, lavatrice, forno, detersivi, medicinali, bagnoschiuma e via dicendo. Ottima la posizione, a 5 minuti a piedi alla Rambla e con la metro difronte la piazzetta. Lo consiglio vivamente a qualsiasi coppia che voglia andare a Barcellona perché è assolutamente il top!!
Très bon accueil de Cryst. Appartement cosy, très bien équipé et au centre de toutes animations (Ramblas, Barceloneta, Montjuic...). Et à seulement 20m du métro.
Cependant, l'appartement manque un peu d'isolation. On entend les passants et les éboueurs qui passent à 3:50 le matin sauf le dimanche et lundi.
Néanmoins, je recommande cet appartement.
Hi, I'm Cryst and I'm from Buenos Aires, one beautiful city of Argentina but live for many years in Spain. I have recently moved to Barcelona and I'll start renting my apartment, I'm sure the experience will be rewarding for both parties. If you need any stuff or Information, suggestions, recommended places, I'm quite willing to do it.
