About This Listing
an apartment with a lot of light near the sea and very well connected, it's about 20 minutes walking from the city center and 10 by metro. i have two little rooms with a single bed each.
come and stay with full access to the apartment! wi-fi, washing-machine, dryer, and fully equipped kitchen!. to use the washing-mashine plus dryer would be 3 euros each time.
metro and bus: "llacuna" metro stations (yellow line) it is just 3 blocks away of the apartment and with six stops you'll be in the CITY CENTER (10 min). red line, is also very close, about 5 minutes walking. with these two metro lines you can get to most places of barcelona. also, if you want to enjoy bus there are some just in front of the building that will also bring you to the center of the city.
about the area: in it's origin it was a residential area of St. Martin of Provençals that grew quickly in population and industry. in the late nineteenth century was the area with the highest industrial concentration of catalonia. today is a constantly changing area, located where you want the new technological district of Barcelona, 22 @, "cohabiting" with old factories and neighborhood life trying preserve the FAMILY ATMOSPHERE that it is lost in other popular districts of Barcelona.

Didn't spent much time here, but had everything I could possibly need during my stay. Nice and cozy room, good rest, convenient kitchen and bathroom, good location, friendly and helpful host.
Oh and the cat is the most well-behaved cat I've ever seen in my life =)
David is a witty person and a great host who likes to provide support when needed, his recommendations always suited me nicely. I had a very pleasant stay at his apartment, i.e. I found the desired calm that I needed after my busy tourist working day, and even slept like a baby, thanks to a cosy bed. I hope to come back soon to Poble Nou and David's strategically well situated apartment.
The room is great! Privacy was a wooden sliding door, but if you have a respectful neighbour, it will be all good! David is also great to talk to for tips around local food in the area. If you do get a chance to, ask him! You won't regret it! I had a very good last dinner in Barcelona thanks to his reccomendation ;) as well as breakfast. His cat is also a little playful one. Keep your bag straps at bay!
Also his house is super near the metro llacuna - less than 4 minutes walk? The neighbourhood may seem very quiet, but I assure you its pretty safe, as a solo female traveller walking back at 12 midnight.
I'm completely satisfied staying at David's place. All is neat and clean. Small room,but you have all,what you need. I didn't see my neighbor at all. And practically David too. So I didn't feel uncomfortable because of sharing a flat with smb else. David has lovely cat. It's very well-behaved. This flat has a great location. It's near the sea,just 10 min walk and 5 min walk to metro. I highly recommend this flat. I fall in love in Barcelona and had amazing 6 days there.
