About this listing
A couple of years ago I was looking for a place to turn into a bar in the quiet and bohemian Poble Sec.
Finally I found it, but instead of a bar it was gonna be my home. In a couple of seconds I had imagined how to make it into a
lovely place to live in and that allowed me to display part of my artistic work.
For this, my guests, as they come in, see that they not only count with the comodity and comfort of a flat to spend
an enjoyable stay, but also, they can appreciate disign, creative details in each room and some exclusive services
as the wine cellar & cinema collection.
The place is ideal for couples or grups up to 4, for cultural turism, surprise, romantic or business trips.
During the past 2 years I have been putting in hours of work and inspiration in this space made to my measure.
I hope my guests will enjoy this creativity and a more original Barcelona!
Possibility of late check out (providing there is no other booking on the same day), ideal for weekend breakes.
Collection of international movies and books.
To go from the airport to my house in the most economical way, you first would have to buy a card-carrying T-10 (about 10 € for 10 trips)
Then MUST take the bus 46 to Plaza Spain. From there and using the same ticket, you can take the metro line 3 to the Poble Sec station (Exit parlament). Then MUST walk up Av Parallel Blasco de Garay and turn right about 200 meters to find the number of my house.
They can also share a taxi between 4 people (approx € 10 per person) or take the Aerobus to Plaza Spain and walk 800 meters into the Parallel Avenue to Blasco de Garay.
La norma más importante es el cuidado del mobiliario, ya que a diferencia de otros pisos o casas que se alquilan con lo mínimo, en esta se conservan gran parte de objetos artísticos y personales de valor como obras de arte, películas y libros de diseño. El espacio está pensando para que los huéspedes puedan disfrutar y acceder a todo esto, pero con conducta y responsabilidad.
Hote tres sympa. L'appartement est tres bien placé. Nous avons tt fait a pieds, que ce soit la mer ou les ramblas. Appartement sympthatique et original. Seul bemol il est bruyant. A part cela un grnd merci a Pablo qui nous a bien guidé.
La estancia en el apartamento de Juan fue buena. El apartamento está situado en una zona muy agradable con mucha vida, y además muy cerca del centro. Esta muy bien comunicado por metro y bus e incluso fuimos muchas veces andando al centro pues no estaba muy lejos. El apartamento corresponde con las fotografías, muy original y un diseño muy bonito y a la vez cómodo. Juan nos recibió a nuestra llegada y a los poco días nos mando un mensaje para ver como estábamos.
Juan was excellent gave us all the information we needed. The apartment was so cool, such a big space. Near everything. Will be staying there again when we are back in Barcelona
This was an awesome find in a nice quiet part of the city but close to plenty of things to do. Juan was an amazing host, no problems meeting him to get the keys and show us around the place. I definitely recommend this place
Juan provided helpful information and greeted us with hospitality. The room looks exactly the same as pictures and very spacious. Great location to most tourist locations in barcelona: espanaya plaza, gracia street, catalunya plaza, and lam blas street. We will definitely come back to Juan's place in the future.
Jan Pablo was an excellent host. We stayed at his artistic loft for 2 weeks in June. We arrived late and he met us at the loft to take us through his place and explain everything. He left us a bottle of wine and grapes for our welcome to Barcelona. During our time, he checked in with us to offer suggestions and see how we were doing. If we needed anything, he was quick to respond.
Juan's loft is in a perfect location! We were able to walk almost everywhere. We only took the subway once to Parc Guell, but walked to all the other sites. We are runners and his place is near the botanic gardens. We were able to lace up our running shoes and run through the parks to Castell de Montjuic...a challenging up hill or up multiple sets of stairs climb. Well worth it!
We had a late flight the last day and Juan let us store our luggage in his loft so we could continue enjoying Barcelona to the very last minute. We would definitely stay in his place again.
Fantastic place and location near everything. Art work in flat was a plus. Neighborhood is very eclectic and fun to explore. Would definitely come back and stay. Local bars and restaurants had great food.
About the Host, Juan Pablo
Luego de 43 años, felizmente enamorado. He cruzado el océano varias veces y mi corazón está un poco repartido con afectos de aquí y de allá. Geminiano con espíritu bohemio y humanitario, a veces, excesivamente idealista. Me encargo de llevar un bar de copas "very cosmopolita" y en mis tiempos libres, intento avanzar con mis ideas artísticas. Cinéfilo empedernido, soñador a gran escala, viajero de presupuesto flexible, buen compañero, ofrezco hospitalidad, confort y creatividad para todos mis invitados. Los espero.
After 42 years, happily in love, I crossed the ocean many times and my heart is spread on both sides.
Geminies with bohemian and humanitarian spirit, sometimes excessively idealistic.
I run a very cosmopolitan bar and in my free time I try to get some artistic work done.
Cinefile, dreamer on a big scale, traveler of flexible budjet, good company,
I offer hospitality, comfort and creativity to my guests.
Looking forward to meeting you.
