About This Listing
Very bright room with direct access to terrace in an apartment in a quiet street in the popular Poble Sec neighborhood, located very close to the center of the city. An ideal location for exploring Barcelona!
I live in a very bright renovated apartment in the heart of vibrant and popular Poble Sec, a neighborhood centrally located right at the foot of the Montjuic mountain, where you find the Olympic stadium, the Miro museum, the Montjuic castle, parks and gardens and much more. Poble Sec is a great neighborhood with plenty of life on the streets, but still with a relaxed atmosphere. It is largely a residential area, meaning it is fairly quiet at night (so you can get your sleep), but still very close to the hustle and bustle of the center.
The apartment is located a few steps from the ever more popular Calle Blai, a pedestrian street filled with great tapas bars and restaurants, a lot of them with outdoor tables.
From the apartment there is only a couple minutes walk to Parallel Metro (Line 2 and 3) where a lot of bus lines pass by as well (amongst them one that goes straight to the beach). It is also easy to get a taxi from here any hour of the day. There is around 15 minutes walk to Las Ramblas and the Gotic area. Or you could rent a bike or scooter from the shop that is located just around the corner from the flat, if you prefer that.
The guest room is very bright and is furnished with a big double bed (160x200), a desk, a bookshelf and a big wardrobe. There is heating and air condition in the room. Clean sheets and towels are of course provided. From the room you have direct access to the terrace where you find a table and chairs, sun beds and great views over the city and the Montjuic mountain. You'll find that the terrace is the perfect place for the morning coffee or tea, or for a relaxing drink in the evening!
As the apartment is at the top floor of the building, and the building is a bit higher than the surrounding ones, there is very little noise from the street or the surrounding apartments.
In the apartment you will also find a very clean bathroom, a big dining/living room and a fully equipped kitchen, which you would be welcome to use.
Check in and check out times are indicative. I am pretty flexible in that regard. I will usually be able to accommodate check in earlier than 16:00 if needed, especially on weekends, but I can not guarantee it though. If check in before 16:00 is very important to you, please ask in advance.
- Hair dryer
- Beach umbrella
- Iron and ironing board
- Guidebooks, including a guide to the Poble Sec neighborhood
- Washing machine (free to use if you stay at least 5 days)
- Keys, so you can come and go as you like
I'm the only one living here, so you would only be sharing the apartment with me, meaning you would have the place to yourself when I'm at work or out and about. I'd be more than happy to help you with tips and recommendations to make your stay as enjoyable as possible!
If the room interests you, please take the time to fill out your profile on Airbnb before contacting me. For security reasons I will not accept bookings from a blank profile. And please don't try to book a reservation before messaging and confirming with me first, thanks!
If you have any questions feel free to write me!
Other Things to Note
Please note that the flat is on the fifth floor and that there is no elevator, so if you have some physical issues, this might not be the right place for you :) I will help you bring luggage up and down if you wish, so that should not be a concern.
A bit of mutual respect goes a long way! :)
No smoking inside the apartment, please. You are welcome to smoke on the terrace.
Try to keep it fairly quiet late at night both in the apartment and staircase, especially during the week.
Visitors only after previous agreement (this does not apply for guests who rent the room for longer periods).
The apartment was absolutely lovely. Jens was a very welcoming host and we had a few really nice, short chats with him during our 4-day-stay in Poble Sec. The view from the terrace is awesome and the apartment is really clean, well furnished and the room we rented had air conditioning (which was absolutely needed).
We had a great experience and would certainly stay at this apartment again.
Jens apartment is AMAZING
It was in such a great location
The train is super close, there are bars and restaurants everywhere, the room was exactly as the photos showed and perfectly described! Jens was so lovely and very accommodating. The room has beautiful views of Barcelona and in the summer it's nice to have the terrace door open and have the natural breeze even though you have the option of air-conditioning. Jens was very helpful and the communication could not have been better!
Thanks again Jens :)
Jens ist ein sehr netter und zuvorkommender Gastgeber. Er ist immer ansprechbar und mit tollen Tipps parat, zwingt sich einem aber auch nicht auf, sodass man sich rundum wohlfühlt. Die Wohnung und die Terrasse sind wie beschrieben, alles sehr sauber und das Bett frisch bezogen. Nachts wurde es bereits sehr warm, dafür gibt es dann eine Klimaanlage. Bei offenem Fenster konnten wir nicht gut schlafen, da entweder Lärm von der Blai-Street (Straße mit vielen Tapas-Bars) oder der Müllabfuhr bis in den fünften Stock drang. Bei Leuten mit tieferem Schlaf sicherlich kein Problem. Alles in allem aber super Unterkunft und zu empfehlen.
Great location (5 mins walk to metro and bus stop). Good value for money. Jens is very friendly, helpful and strong. Room is cozy and The terrace is amazing. We would definitely recommend this house for everyone to stay in Barcelona.
Me and my friend had such a great stay at Jens' apartment. The location was perfect, it had everything we needed nearby and it was easy to find. The flat itself was clean, big and we loved the terrace. It was exactly as it looked in the pictures and we were lucky to stay there. Jens was helpful, friendly and a great host who made us feel really welcome. Could not recommend this apartment more to anyone staying in Barcelona. Thanks Jens!
Jens was an excellent host! My friend and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay with him! The apartment was exactly as shown in the pictures, clean and comfortable. Jens was very helpful. He provided us with maps and helpful tips for Barcelona. He was very friendly and welcoming. The terrace was an excellent feature to this place therefore I would highly recommend staying here. Would definitely return. Thanks for an amazing stay Jens!!

About the Host, Jens
I was born and raised in Denmark. I moved to Barcelona in 2006 and have been living and working here since. The great Poble Sec neighborhood has been my home since 2009. I'm a pretty relaxed and sociable guy who likes traveling, hiking, meeting friends and having the occasional drink, going to concerts, watching movies or a bit of football, working out, reading, listening to music, photography etc. In other words: a pretty normal guy!
