NEW!! Check out also my new listing (CHEAP CENTRIC SUNNY MODERNIST FLAT) at airbnb. c o m/rooms/633952
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.

There are 2 metros within 5 minutes walking distance (Poble Sec metro station –L3- and Paralel•l –L3, L2-) and nearby many theatres which offer cabaret, musicals, comedy and drama. There are also plenty of buses to the beach and downtown.
Good connections from the airport!!

Bienvenidos a BCN! Hope you have a wonderful stay!
Location was fabulous. Apartment was clean and met all our needs. Was exactly the same as in pictures. Antonio was a great host. Gave us lots of input and emailed us with great recommendations. Would stay here again. Roger & family from Canada
Everything's just brilliant - modest but perfectly adequate and spotless flat, well-located, charming, quiet, ideal for a couple or a parent with a teenager. Antonio is a star, kind, accommodating and caring. Will definitely stay there again!
We have recently returned from staying at Antonio's place. We really enjoyed our stay, other than the football result (Barca vs Manchester City). Antonio is a very welcoming host and his apartment is exactly how it comes across in the description. He made sure we knew everything about the apartment and even left us with some basic goods (tea, coffee, water, snacks etc) before leaving us to begin our stay.
I actually enjoyed the location as it meant we got to see parts of Barcelona which other tourists might not get to see, yet it was easy to navigate the metro/ tram systems to be in the main city centre within a few minutes, whilst taxis weren't overly pricey.
Overall we all agreed that we would like to visit the city again but when we aren't there for the football, so we can see some more of the sights and attractions that make Barcelona what it is.
So thank you Antonio for make our stay comfortable and easy!
Muy bien todo. Si vuelvo a Barcelona repito
Antonio ist sehr zuvorkommend,hilfsbereit und seine wohnung sehr praktisch für drei personen.sie liegt nahe von vielen sehenswürdigkeiten und sehr ruhig,ein angenehmes wohnquartier und verkehrstechnisch gut erschlossen
Great place, great location, great host! Antonio received me despite my late inbound flight into Barcelona and showed me everything there was to know about the apartment.
Everything was great to stay at Antonio's flat. The location is really good-not super touristic area but lots of well known places are nearby (reachable by foot). Antonio is such a nice host, he gave us a perfect brief about his flat and the city. Really helpful.
My husband and I had an amazing time staying at Antonio's flat in Barcelona. Antonio was super helpful; he waited for us after a late flight into town to let us in, he made us feel at home and left tea, cava, coffee, and snacks, he gave us fantastic recommendations, and he came to say goodbye and helped us with our bags when it was time to go. The flat was a quiet, sunny place to have a late breakfast on the balcony or rest midday. The location was absolutely amazing. We walked most everywhere, as a 15 minute walk got us into the center of town. It was nice to have all of the sights so accessible, but to come home to a quiet place each night that is out of the tourist heavy zones. Lastly, I highly recommend you spend as much time as possible in Park Montjuic. It is amazing and a quick walk from the flat. Next time we're in Barcelona, we'd love to stay at Antonio's again!
Viajamos 4 personas y era nuestra primera experiencia 'airbnb'. Habíamos coordinado con el anfitrión quién respondió siempre a tiempo los mensajes, emails, sms, etc. y nos recibió a las 7 am incluso ya que llegábamos temprano y así no tuvimos que esperar en la estación.
El apartamento esta en un 5to piso, factor a considerar si se tiene mucho equipaje. Está ubicado muy cerca de una avenida principal donde hay transporte público y sus comodidades son suficientes para el concepto 'bed&beakfast'. Las fotos lo muestran muy bien.
Nos tocaron días muy fríos, pero Antonio estuvo dispuesto a llevarnos más ropa de cama y utilizamos un pequeño calefactor del baño para temperar la sala, por lo que no fue un problema.
En fin...Recomendamos el apartamento !
The flat is situated in the old part of Bcn, neighborhood is quite and safe. Its near to historical center – El Gothic, El Raval are about 20-15 min walk. Port Vell and seaside are also the same time to walk. Montjuic is fast beside (it's a pity the cable car in February was closed and we had to use a bus). The location is really great. There are a lot of shops round the corner: little fruit shops, bakery and also supermarkets like Condis, BonArea.
The kitchen is very nice, with all necessary stuff. We used to cook fantastic dishes from fresh food and to eat them sitting on sunny balcony. Rooms are also sunny and comfortable.
And there are some features of an old building: no lift, no central heating (there was a good heather).
But we can highly recommend this place to stay. And Antonio is a great host, he is very helpful, answered all the ?, gave a lot of useful information.
Thank you for our amazing vacation!
