There is a lift in the building, very handy if you are carrying heavy luggage. The building was built in the early 1900's and the lift is small since it was added a few decades later, so if you are not travelling light you might need to use it a couple of times to bring your suitcases upstairs.
Both the building and our flat have been recently renovated, so they display beautiful original details such as wooden beams in the traditional 'volta catalana' ceiling, as well as the apartment's door, while the rest is brand new.
We have also upgraded the internet deal at home, so it's 100mb download now (a super fast connection thanks to optical fibre!!).

We want our guests to feel like they're at home so all the common areas in the place -kitchen, bathroom, living room, balconies- are accessible to them, with all of their equipment and facilities. The only place we'll keep to ourselves is a little studio we lock when we are renting out the entire place.
Interaction with Guests
Since I also use Airbnb when I travel, I know how important it is for a host to reply promptly and be easy to reach, so I make sure I'm always there for my guests if they need me.
I strive to communicate with my guests from the very first moment they show an interest in staying in my place. I'll be more than happy to answer questions and give you directions and tips to make the most of your stay, as well as accommodating you as much as I can.
Poble Sec sits at the bottom of Montjuïc, to the south-east of Plaça Catalunya. This zone is highly residential and possesses a wide range of services, several pedestrian streets and a pleasant village atmosphere, and there is much entertainment to be had as well. This includes popular cafes, bars, restaurants, theaters and clubs, making it popular with visitors. A good choice if you want to be central but away from the crowds of tourists that populate more central areas!
The main thoroughfare is Avinguda Paral·lel, an avenue that cuts down from picturesque Plaça Espanya right down to the World Trade Centre at the tip of the port.
The event halls and the Palau de Congressos near Plaça Espanya make the Poble Sec area perfect for those in Barcelona on business, having a lot to offer tourists as well.
Also very near Poble Sec is the Mercat de Sant Antoni which is a large market selling primarily food products, a good place to have a wander and overload your senses.
You can also easily walk to Las Ramblas through Raval in no more than 10 or 15 minutes.
As for moving around, it's really easy thanks to the location of the apartment.
Only 3 minutes away by foot you'll find the nearest metro station: Poble Sec (Line 3), from which you can change to Line 1 if you go to Plaça Espanya -one stop away, also connected to the FGC railway- or to Line 2 if you head in the opposite direction and hop off at Paral.lel -only one stop away as well, from which you can also take the Funicular up to Montjuïc, offering great views of the city and grassy areas to have a picnic-.
There are also several bus lines connecting you with the different neighborhoods, and with the beach too in less than 10-15 minutes.

We love keeping track of interesting activities to do while in Barcelona and discovering new places to eat an drink, and we love sharing them with our guests even more, so you will get a link to the guidebook we are permanently working on as well after the booking has been confirmed!
While at home we will be happy to provide you with maps and tips to make the most of your stay.
Like Japanese or Swedish people, we always walk barefoot inside the house and we'd really appreciate it if you did so as well :)
Please clean and leave things where you found them after you use them.
We live in a residential building and need to have a proper sleep, so quietness from 11pm to 9am is required. There are not rules about coming back home late, but if you do please be as quiet as possible and don't continue to listen to music/chat/drink in your bedroom or in other places around the house - we think it's a matter of common sense but since it's happened a few times we finally had to write it down here.
No acquaintances nor friends are admitted, you are the only persons allowed to get into the flat during your stay.
Smoking is ok only in the balconies.
Illegal substances are prohibited, as well as the abuse of alcohol.
