About this listing
Cosy apartment in an old Modernist building (with its original decoration) in the core of the picturesque Poble Sec district close to the very center of Barcelona.
The apartment has two bedrooms (one spacious double and one single), a living & dining room, bathroom, one fully equipped kitchen, a balcony and lots of sunlight (in the living room and the main room)!! Wifi Internet available and included.
It is on a 4th floor without elevator, so stay away if you are not fond of stairs!! ;-) On the other hand, since the apartment is so high up, and faces the East, it is quite sunny, particularly in the mornings and early afternoon.
Our pleasant and welcoming apartment aims to be your perfect hideaway for your BCN stay… Ideal place for 2-3 people, it can comfortably welcome up to 4 people.
Your budget may be limited, but the quality and comfort of this BCN apartment is not!
Note: the single room has no direct sunlight and has a double sofa-bed.
Good connections from the airport!!
THE POBLE SEC NEIGHBORHOOD, RIGHT BY THE CITY CENTER:
It is located in the core of the Poble Sec district, and old modernist and now trendy multi-cultural neighborhood with a unique atmostphere: you will find terraces, nice and varied restaurants, great little wine/tapas bars, local stores, pedestrian streets and cultural amenities.
From its pedestrian streets you can take a nice walk down to the main points of BCN’s old downtown: Ciutat Vella, with the Cathedral and historic streets and buildings or the Raval district, famous for its cultural diversity, nightclubs, museums of contemporary art and its streets full of charm. Both are just about 10 mins. walk away
Located on the doorstep of the Montjuic Mountain (Park), the ideal place if you love to enjoy some nature (and fantastic views of BCN!!) without leaving the city. Also a great location, if you are into running or any other outdoor sport activity. If you the sports spectator type, check out the Sports Museum and the 1992 Olympic Stadium!! Montjuic offers also a wealth of cultural attractions such as the Miró Museum, the Etnology museum, the MNAC (National Museum of Catalan Art), the Caixa Forum contemporary art museum, the “Pueblo Español” , etc… along with the well known Magic Fountain of Montjuic.

It was a really nice stay ! The flat has a very good location in Barcelona, and it's very cosy and quiet. Anton is very kind and he gave us a lot of good things to do.
Everything was as described, the flat is in a lovely neighborhood, Anton welcomed my girlfriend and me kindly, thank you.
Anton is a very nice host. The flat was perfect for our short stay in Barcelona. Aquarium, Montjuic castle, Font Magica are very close!
L. Anton has been an amazing host, he welcomed us in the apartment and shared with me and my girlfriend a lot of useful information about Barcelona and the house.
Unfortunately we went during a big heatwave so the house was extremely hot and we had only a fan to help us fight the hotness.
As said by others, the house is on the fifth floor with no elevator, it helps to keep a good shape!
Anyway, we LOVED the "barrio" el poble sec, it was so alive and full of local people and tapas bars. So the house is perfectly placed in Barcelona, a few steps away from the metro and buses, but in 6 days we only used them once, because everything is reachable by foot, especially if you are a heavy walker like us. It's like 20 minutes to the Barrio Gotico, 35 to the beach, 15 from Espanya station and so on.
The house was really clean and hospital. Two bedrooms and one big living room, perfect for 2-3-4 people max. The kitchen was clean, but the pots and pans could need a little cleaning.
There was everything in the bathroom.
I would suggest this house to everyone, but not if there are up to 37° degrees and Anton hasn't repaired the air conditioning system! (He told me that he will, and he will get more fans)
Everything about my airbnb experience in Barcelona was great! The apartment was just what I expected, it was large enough for the three people in my group and the kitchen was well equipped. It was a little hot without ac but it was a heatwave in Barcelona when I was there. Also, the mattress in the pull-out couch was a bit uncomfortable, but both beds are comfy and bug enough for two to share. The neighborhood was safe a well-located near the city center with restaurants/cafes/bars nearby. Anton was lovely and very easy to keep in contact with. He met us at the door, showed us everything we needed in the apartment, and even recommended a great Flamenco show!
Très bon accueil!! A noter que l'appartement est au 49 et non pas au 57 comme indiqué par erreur par AIRBNB... Belle situation dans Poblesec. Immeuble calme. Balcon mignon et typique de Barcelone!! Merci Anton!
