Welcome to Barcelona!
IDEAL QUIET LOCATION IN THE CENTER OF BARCELONA CLOSE TO LAS RAMBLAS fnt
Come discover why this is a lovely and unique accommodation which will offer you not only a comfortable stay but also a nice experience in Barcelona if you want to be part of the “local scene”. In the past the building was an industrial factory and then a school. Since 1999 there are several apartments in the building with nice neighbours and our apartment is a nice place for our guests who want to visit Barcelona.
Highlights of the area: close to the centre of town, near Plaça Espanya and the Magic Fountains of Montjuïc, Poble Espanyol.
*OUR HAPPY GUESTS are mature and young couples, families with older and young children, groups of friends and solo travelers.
*WE OFFER OUR GUESTS this really elegant and comfortable apartment with very high ceilings and big three windows. Bright and comfortable space. It is fully renewed from an authentic loft with great space and luminosity.
It has now one bedroom and a second floor as another big room with beds for four, comfortable seats and an original hand-made hammock for maximum comfort!. Very well equipped kitchen with a washing machine and a dryer.
The flat is surrounded by semi-pedestrian streets with a relaxed atmosphere. There's a supermarket with fresh products across from the flat. It is a family-friendly place and even toys at hand if you come with your children. The interior has recently been completely renovated and equipped with all new furniture, a practical bathroom, a spacious kitchen including all amenities so guests can take full advantage of shopping for delicacies at the local markets. Furthermore, there’s a separate dining area to enjoy sharing meals, and a living-room with lots of light.
Paral.lel and Poble Sec are barrios included in the district called Montjuïc. Paral.lel is an avenue that cuts down from picturesque Plaça Espanya right down to the World Trade Centre at the tip of the port. Poble Sec is an area spreading out from the middle of Paral.lel.
The areas are safe and primarily residential but there is much entertainment to be had as well. This includes popular bars, theatre and even a club. However, whilst Paral.lel is a busy thoroughfare during the day, the areas are quiet and just a 10-20 minute walk to the centre of the city and Las Ramblas. A good choice if you want to be central but away from the crowds of tourists that populate more central areas.
Montjuïc and Plaça Espanya are also very close by. The event halls and the Palau de Congressos near Plaça espanya also make the Paral.lel/ Poble Sec area perfect for those in Barcelona on business. Although both Plaça Espanya and Montjuïc have a lot to offer tourists as well.
There are several restaurants and many cafes which line either side of Paral.lel which also is home to some beautiful building facades, making it popular with visitors.
There are 2 metro stops, aptly named Paral.lel and Poble Sec, they are on the same line and are a stop or two away from Las Ramblas.

We booked at very short notice and our hosts were extremely helpful confirming the booking, communication, sending relevant documents and meeting us at the appartment.
We found them exteremely flexible on checkout which was a great help. The appartment was nicely laid out and very clean, there is a modern bathroom and kitchen, the living area is nice and spacious, with tv and Wifi, loads of maps and books for information.
We would have prefered if the 2 bedrooms were a little more private, the second bedroom had an open aspect.
It is located close to metro Para liel in a very small street, but within a radius of 100m are a number of bars and small restaurants, we even walked to La Ramblas and up Mountjuic...fantastic views of the city. Really enjoyed our stay.
