Beautiful flat in the quarter of Poblenou with magnificent sights from the 11th plant. Two rooms, a bedroom, kitchen and bath completely equipped; terrace of 8 m2 and 100 MB Wifi.
Very close of the subway L4 and tram; to 15 minutes walking to the beach. You will fall in love!
The apartment is on the 6th floor of a modern building, with 4 LIFTS and conceirge overlooking southest, so the house is very sunny. I put a lot of energy in making it a cozy home (also because it's my home the weekends that I'm in Barcelona), not a cold flat for tourists and I really want to make you feel at home from the very first moment.
There is a double bed in the bedroom and a sofa bed for other 2 people in the living room. However, I only accept 4 people on an individual case by case basis, so don't hesitate to contact me anyway if you are more than 2.
In the quarter of Poblenou there are a big offer of bars and restaurants of local and foreign kitchen.
To learn more about all the hot spots around, don't forget to check the GUIDE I have prepared for you. To read it, click on the "maps" tab on the top of the page. You'll find useful information about what to do, where to eat, shop, even do your laundry and see a doctor if necessary.
Small commerce and two commercial centers to 15 minutes walking in opposite directions.
Subway (5 stops to the historical center) and tram close, several lines of buses.
The quarter of Poblenou is one of the few ones of Barcelona that the authenticity preserves, it does not seem that it is nailed in a big city.
100 MG WI-FI
This is one of the most modern areas of the city, the district 22@, in Poblenou. District 22@ is the innovation district, a quiet area with a lot of space and very, very safe, sorrounded by green areas and on walking distance to the beach. It is also very well communicated with the centre. A quiet neighbourhood made of young people and young families. The charm of a different "Ramblas", those of Poblenou will captivate you... since here you'll feel how is it like being a local in modern Barcelona.
Actually, the entire Poblenou is undergoing since year 2004 a transformation similar to what took place in other Western cities as neighborhoods Williamsburg and Meatpacking District in New York and the conducted by Wynwood Arts District in Miami. I will be happy to show you my favourite art galleries around!
HOW TO ARRIVE AND MOVE AROUND
Public transportation connections are:
METRO: the nearest metro stop (SELVA DE MAR) is 1 blocks away. Line 4 will take you in 8 minutes you'll be in Jaume I (Born, the Picasso Museum, Santa María del Mar) and in 12 minutes you'll be in Passeig de Gracia, just a few meters away from La Pedrera.
BUS: Bus no. 7 is one block away and goes to the city centre as well, while bus 36 to the Barceloneta 46 drives you to Poble Sec and Paral.lel. At night, the night bus no. 7 stops on the other side, so that you don't have to use taxis. There is a night bus N6 on block away. On the weekends, the metro works all night in Barcelona!
TRAM: Tram can be useful to get to Sant Adrià del Besos and from there take the train to the beach towns to the north of Barcelona, such as beautiful Tossa de Mar and gorgeous Sant Pol de Mar, both former fishermen villages. Or you can take it on the other direction to Glories and there change to the metro going to Plaça Catalunya.
Other relevant distances are:
AIRPORT: about 50 min with Aerobús + metro
TRAIN: 30 minutes from Sants Estació / 15 minutes from Estació de França
BUS: 20 minutes from Estació del Nord
Please note that transportation time is calculated since the moment you take the first metro/bus downtown. Once you'll book, you'll received detailed directions to get to the apartment, including maps.
All in all, you'll have so many options to get downtown and around.
Before booking, please send me an email introducing yourselves a bit (i.e. who you are, what you do, your purpose of the trip... I don't know, the kind of things you'd like to know from someone that's going to stay in your house). Knowing you better will also help me to give you some tips of what to do and what to see in Barcelona. I'm an expert on exploring cities in an off-the-beaten track mood and I will be happy to help you to discover the real Barcelona! In the meantime you can take a lot at all the sites I've listed in the map!
I look forward to meeting you, I'm sure you won't regret it!

I expect you to respect my house as if it'd be yours and respect neighbours. Parties are not allowed, as well as any unreasonable loud noise after 11pm or at any time in the common areas of the building. In reality, only common sense rules apply. Again, I'd like to to feel at home and treat my appartment as your own house.
One very important thing: smoking is not allowed!
We stayed in the apartment for 5 nights, and we absolutely had a really nice stay. The apartment is exactly as the pictures show you and is in a really nice neighbourhood, close the metro and the beach. We can recommand the apartment to anyone who wants to stay in Barcelona! Awesome!
Carme is an excellent host, with very good communication prior to and during the stay. She made me extremely welcome on my arrival and provided very helpful local information.
The apartment is lovely (comfortable, very clean/tidy & well-equipped), has a balcony with great views of Diagonal & the mountains, and is 15 minutes walk from the beach.
I look forward to staying with Carme again on future visits to Barcelona.
Carme is an excellent host. Her apartment is very well located 10 minutes from the beach and 2 minutes to the metro. It is clean and well appointed with all you need. Carme even left us a couple of cold drinks and other goodies in the fridge.
Carme is helpful and friendly. I strongly recommend a stay here!
Trato amable y cercano. Casa cuenta con lo que puedas encontrar en un hogar. Piso comodo y moderno.Zona tranquila y muy cercana al centro al lado de la playa y a menos de cinco minutos del metro.
We had a great stay in Carme's appartment. Carme was very helpful and open to reschedule checkin and checkout period in order to make our stay more confortable. The appartment is very clean and light-filied as is shown in all photos, as well as quite and well located close to the beach and surrounded by backeries, cafes, restaurants and tapas-bars.
I completly recommend this appartment for a short or long period in Barcelona.
This apartment is fantastic and very well organised to make your stay as easy as possible. It is exactly as it looks in the photographs. I had a very short visit and Carme went out of her way to fit around my schedule and hep me make the most if my time in Barca .highly recommended.
