Ideal for 5-6 people, the apartment can comfortably host up to 7 to 8. Just consider in this case, the flat has only one bathroom!
The flat is on a 4th floor (with elevator), quite high up, so is quite sunny, particularly in the mornings and early afternoon.

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.

Bienvenidos a BCN!
Antonio was a perfect host and we loved the apartment. Nice local area and lots of cool places nearby
I have stay in a couple of place via airbnb, all the host have been extremely but Antonio hospitality to an other level he really make his vest to make you feel at home. His place has a real caracter, it s clean and he s improving it every day. The neighborhood is perfect quite but with some nice restaurant and bar. Easy access to airport, train station and sights. To summarize, if you are a group of people don t hesitate a second to stay at Antonio s place.
The appartment is very well located between MontJuic and the old city. The street is very quiet at night.
It is also in line with the description and Antonio is doing some renovation work which are good, the bathroom is all new with good shower.
possibility to buy food in small shops in the street and also very good and cheap restaurants just in the nearby !
A very good address for reasonnable cost.
And Barcelona is so amasing ! ...
Had a fantastic stay at Antonio's place in the heart of Poble Sec. A great central location with lots of bars and restaurants nearby and a short walk to the sea front and the Raval district. It is also near the metro, so very well connected. Antonio was very welcoming and made sure we had all we needed. The sunny balcony was fantastic in the morning and we enjoyed lovely breakfasts in the warm sunlight. We visited at the end of November, and it was very cold in Barcelona. In the night the flat was a bit cold for comfort, but now Antonio has purchased new heaters, so it should be better!
Very nice apartment, big, comfortable and beautiful. We enjoyed having breakfast on the balcony! The location were great too, close to the center but in a calm quarter. And Antonio were so nice, he received us so well (and with a bottle of wine and other things ;)) and cared about our comfort.
Gracias por todo Antonio, hasta luego!

We had really a fantastic time at Antonio's flat! The flat was big enough to accommodate 7 of us (yes, big group :)), it was very clean and spacey and located in one of the best areas of Barcelona. Antonio has been a really helpful host, and everything went smoothly both in the check-in and check-out process. Overall, it was a positive experience, I'd say this flat is good value for money, and I'd recommend it for whoever wants to visit Barcelona with a 6+ group of friends. Thumbs up!
The apartment was very clean and its proximity to La Rambla and the port were all within a 20 minute walk. Antonio was very helpful on our arrival and made us feel right at home!
Nous sommes arrivé à 8 dans l'appartement de Louis qui nous a accueilli avec gentillesse et bonne humeur ainsi que de quoi petit déjeuner et déguster un bon saucisson espagnol! Il y'avait même un petit stock de bière à disposition!
L'heur d'arrivée et de départ sont à votre choix, il vous suffira simplement de lui écrire un petit SMS avant coup..
L'appartement n'est pas un palace mais il est propre, bien situé, plutôt calme et l'on y dort bien!
Il y'a deux balcons et pour les fumeurs il est autorisé de fumé dans les pièces qui y donnent accès.
Le prix est imbattable pour un groupe de plusieurs personnes!
En gros je vous recommande ce lieux si vous êtes au moins 5 personnes!
(attention ce ne sont que des lits double!
Luis was such a lovely host. Cold beers and fuet were waiting for us when we arrived late at the apartment. Three girls going to Barcelona for a small city adventure and Luis' apartment was the perfect place for us to stay. Very convenient for everything we needed and wanted to see. Simple but lovely. Luis was on call with any questions we had and even emailed us a list of great places to eat in the area. We felt very at home and would definitely stay here again. Thank you Luis for a lovely place to stay in a beautiful city!
Luis was a great host!! My friends and I stayed in his gorgeous apartment during our visit to Barcelona and we couldn't be happier. It was spacious, had all the amenities we needed, and was in a central location - we walked to all the major attractions! Luis welcomed us personally and had several guides for us to use!
