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 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. 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.
Please leave common areas more or less as you find them.
Visitors only after previous agreement (this does not apply for guests who rent the room for longer periods).
Jens has been a great host, very accomodating with the arrival and departure time.
His house is very clean and close to the subway, supermarkets, great tapas bars and the historical centre of Barcelona.
Therefore, i highly recommand his place.
Thanks Jens. Had a great time in Barcelona and Jens was very helpfull with advise on the various neighbourhoods, etc. Good location - walking distance to all the old Barcelona barios.
Jens met us right on time and the apartment was as described. Jens went above and beyond what I expect from a host by providing a nice print out of cool spots in the neighborhood. His apartment has an excellent view and is well located. I would not hesitate to stay with him again.
Jens was a great host, we really enjoyed the 3-Night stay at his beautiful apartment!
He gave us a very warm welcome and some nice Tips for Barcelona and the neighbourhood. The Apartment was in perfect condition, clean and bright and really charming. We definitly recommend staying at Jens apartment and would love to come back!
Jens fue un anfitrión muy atento, muy simpático. El piso es tal como aparece en el anuncio, limpio, ordenado y en buen estado. Está muy cerca del centro, en definitiva un lugar muy recomendable para pasar unos días en la cuidad .
My time in barcelona was only made better by staying in this house. It has really lovely furnishings and offers great views of the city. Jens was also very helpful and helped me bring my really heavy luggage up when I arrived and down when I left. The room has a terrace connected which I absolutely loved! Spent time watercolouring and journaling there, it's a gem. There's ample space in the room, furnished with cupboards and Jens provided extra duvets in case of the cold which was also great. There were guidebooks and a Jens own map of good restaurants in the el poble sec area! I'd very much stay here again. It's also so close to the metro or you can walk all the way to barri gotic, barcelona cathedral, catalunya and la rambla which is the best way to explore barcelona! Thank you! Hope to see you in Sydney!
Great host, great apartment, great location. The room has a beautiful light, is spacious and super quiet, I slept well every night! I recommend staying in Jens apartment if you are in Barcelona (what a beautiful city it is!).

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!
