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.

Antonio is so nice. He helps us for lifting the luggage upstairs and he tells us about what can we do near the apartment and how far it will take from the apartment to the attractions~~ we love the apartment so much!!
We loved staying in Anton's apartment, great location and well equipped. Only criticism we would have is it got very very hot in June with no air conditioning! Anton was very helpful and made us feel welcome. Would definitely recommend!
Hi Matilda, thanks for your lovely review! Just a quick line to tell you that there was a big fan in the small room that you can place wherever you like in the apartment. Actually, my current guests are currently using it. Too bad that you did not see it. Next time ;-)
Anton's apartment is clean and spacious, in a great less touristy neighborhood, but within walking distance to Las Ramblas, the cathedral, and many other attractions. He was very helpful in providing recommendations on things to do and places to go. We are very happy with our stay here and recommend the apartment. Thank you!
Such a lovely apartment in a brilliant location. Anton was so welcoming and very helpful in giving us ideas of what to do as well as making us feel comfortable in his home. Would recommend it to anyone going to Barcelona
It was a treat to land in Barcelona and be greeted by Anton! His English, like most in Barcelona, is excellent and was helpful with info about the neighborhood. Location was a s may have difficulty.
Thank you so much Anton, we would definitely stay again.
P.S. Do not drink the tap water if your North American stomach is not used to new bacteria. After switching to bottled water symptoms resolved
We had a great one night stay at Anton's apartment. The apartment was easy to find and a short 10 minute walk from the metro. The aerobus also picks up about 15 minutes away.
Anton had great recommendations for local places to eat and was extremely welcoming. He even helped us bring our luggage up the stairs and was kind enough to store our bags during our trip to Madrid.
The apartment is very clean and bigger than we expected. We felt right at home and would definitely stay here again.
