The Space

Our recently renovated flat in Poble Nou has a single room and 2 large double rooms available, brand new, spacious and well designed kitchen and bathroom with new fridge, oven, stove, central heating, wifi and washing machine. The common area is quite large, ventilated and well illuminated. Two internal terraces flank the flat and help maintain a really pleasant temperature.

Guest Access

As our guests you're welcome to use the flat and everything in it as your own. Bathroom, kitchen etc.

The Neighborhood

Spend summer with the locals as street fiesta’s take over this relaxed seaside barrio, with the option of a vibrant night life in Port Olympica just around the corner for those who want to party that little bit harder, or its 5min on the metro into the Barrio Gotico for traditional celebrations and all the major tourist attractions. There is a little bit of everything here in Barcelona's newest barrio, from family activities to footloose and fancy free fiesta's!

Getting around

Situated 4 blocks from the beach, 2 blocks from Rambla Poble Nou and adjacent to Metro station Poble Nou (literally across the road - then 10-15min to city centre). The flat is extremely well serviced with local butcher, fishmonger and supermarkets (Lidl, Condis & Mercadona) within a 40 metre radius. Mercat Poble Nou is also close being only one block away.

  • My friend and I had a great stay at Ida's place. The location was absolutely perfect - felt super safe and close to everything. The apartment had everything we needed and the other people staying there were really helpful. Also, Ida was very responsive when we had any problems or questions. I'd definitely stay there again!!

  • James and Ida are fantastic hosts, who went above and beyond to insure a pleasant stay in Barcelona.

  • We had a great time staying in Ida and James apartment and would highly recommend it. It is in a great area of barcelona, very close to the beach, shops and metro. Ida was lovely and her sister was very helpful with things to do in Barcelona and directions. The apartment was very social as there was another couple staying in a different room, a housemate and Ida and her sister would pop in from time to time. The only negative thing we would have to say about the place is that it wasn´t very clean (in comparison with the photos) and the hot water was temperamental.

  • Our stay with Ida was perfect! She's an awesome host who will provide you with detailed information on Barcelona catered to what you're looking to do. The apartment is clean, spacious and a very short walk to the beach. It is also located about 10 minutes to the centre by metro, making it super easy to spend time in Barcelona's busier areas while still feeling like a local by staying in Poblenou. Our time in Barcelona was amazing and we look forward to getting back to Ida & James' place!

  • Ida and James were very nice and helpful since the beginning. I had a great time at their place, the room was just as I saw it in the pictures and the whole apartment as well, so it was great! its soooo easy to get to the apartment by subway and its pretty near from the rambles of Poble nou. PLUS James is a great chef. I totally recommend them if you wanna have an international experience in Barcelona.
    thanks for everything guys, everything was great n see you soon !

  • Great welcoming hosts, always up to show you around, cook, bbq, eat together...

    I really loved the location, Poblenou is a cool little hood and IMO way better than living downtown that has a bunch of little tapas bars, and markets around. Beach is 10-15mins walk, metro is 1 min walk(!)

    I had the small room for 2 weeks which is more than enough for 1 person. The other bigger room is really nice but is very noisy and that is just plain Barcelona I think. So bring earplugs if you take it!

    My advice to travelers to Barcelona, don't be afraid to get OUT of the city - There is awesome stuff to discover, and better beaches. Check out Sitges, Montjuïc and Montserrat for example.
