It is situated in Poble Sec neighbourhood that stretches from Plaza España to the port, nestled between Avenida Parallel and the enormous park areas on Montjuic, one of the city's many hills. The Poble Sec has managed to maintain its charm and authenticity better that most neighbourhoods and is full of bar and restaurants. In fact, the Poble Sec is home to one of the best traditional tapas bar of Barcelona, Quimet Quimet (Poeta Cabanyes, 25 - very, very close to the flat). Carrer Blai is the main pedestrian street and along with the charming Plaza Sortidor are the ideal places where to enjoy a cocktail, a coffee or some delicious food in one of the many terraces.
The Poble Sec offers a wide range of cultural activities and features several popular theatres. It lies at the foot of Montjuic Park where you can find some sports facilities (including the Olympic Stadium), a Botanical Garden, the Joan Miró Foundation and the National Art Museum of Catalonia (MNAC). The view of the city you can enjoy from Montjuic is really impressive and you can walk up or take the funicular from the Parallel metro station. The Ramblas and Gothic Quarter are a short 10/15 minutes walking distance away and is very easy to get there: just cross Avenida Parallel and wander through the multicultural and lively Raval neighbourhood until you reach Las Ramblas. The Poble Sec is also connected to other parts of the city and important tourist attractions by metro (lines L2 and L3 and several bus lines only 150 mts away from our flat.

L'accoglienza di Luca e Bruno, tramite la carinissima Cristina, e' stata puntualissima; anzi hanno acconsentito ad anticipare il check in per accontentarci. La casa era proprio come descritta, ampia, accessoriata, pulita e comoda per gli spostamenti (vicino a metro') e spesa ( a 15 minuti a piedi anche un supermercato bio). I nostri ospitanti sono stati discreti ma anche cordiali e disponibili. Il quartiere e' sembrato tranquillo ( noi siamo poco attendibili perché facciamo poca vita notturna).
Our stay in Luca & Bruno's place was great! Although they don't live in Barcelona, they are communicative in a timely manner, and their friend who checked us in and out was very warm and helpful. The apartment is comfortable and has all the amenities one needs to feel at home while in Barcelona. Poble Sec is a vibrant neighborhood, with fantastic food opportunities very close by. The apartment is clean and quiet, and has an inviting closed varanda in the back, ideal for a nice meal at home. We enjoyed Barcelona a lot and resting at Luca & Bruno's as well.
Since our arrival we felt very welcomed in the great flat of Luca and Bruno. They left us bread, milk, fruit, jam and coffee - we felt like home :-)
The flat itself is very spacious and warm. We were also very pleased with the location: Nice neighbourhood with supermarkets - and of course: Tapas Bars! Just on the left one block further there is a long street full of restaurants, which are quite busy as well. The direction to the city (Ramblas) is walkable or to go by U-train.
Thanks Luca and Bruno for making our stay so wonderful for us - we would definetily come back here :-)
We thought the apartment was great. It was spacious, clean, well equipped and looked just like the photos in the ad (+ the written descriptions are accurate). The location was perfect as the apartment is fairly central without being noisy. The metro is just a couple of minutes away, making all travel options super easy.
The park complex above the apartment is huge and gives you great views of both the city and the ocean.
All our communication with Bruno was efficient, accomodating and helpful. We were met by Cristina at the apartment, who was punctual and helpful, giving us a tour of the apartment.
There is a convenience store right across the street and a large supermarket just 2 minutes away. Aside from that, the neighbourhood offers a large variety of cafés and restaurants.
The bed and pillows (tempur?) in the master bedroom were excellent- we slept like rocks.
All electrical appliances (air conditioner, kitchen equipment, tv) worked well. That goes for the wifi as well.
We used the covered veranda every chance we got. It has great morning sun and keeps a stable, comfortable temperature.
Finding the apartment was very easy. Bruno suggested several routes from the airport with detailed directions.
We would definitely check if this apartment was available the next time we visit Barcelona.
bien reçus par Cristina, à l'heure, notre séjour s'est très bien passé. l'appartement était conforme à ce qui avait été présenté et le quartier populaire et sympathique. toutes les commodités sont à portée de main. nous avons beaucoup apprécié notre séjour et nous renouvellerons cette formule.
Great, clean apartment in a really nice lively neighborhood. The apartment is easy to get to and very close to all of the main attractions (plus, it is downstairs from a delicious tapas bar). The apartment is incredibly quiet so it is easy to sleep in and the shower has great water pressure (something that is sometimes lacking in European apartments). All in all it was a lovely experience. Thank you, Luca and Bruno!
We loved our stay at Luca and Bruno's! It has a very homely, comfortable feel and is spacious and light. There were only two of us, but four people could fit here easily. We really appreciated the extra touches Luca and Bruno thought of - advice on local restaurants and sights; milk, coffee and breakfast food for us to eat. There's also a washing machine (with detergent) and an iron, which came in very handy after a week in hotels. The Poble Sec neighbourhood is a cool little spot. There are loads of tapas bars on Carrer Blai just around the corner, and you can easily walk to Raval or Barri Gotic. Highly recommend.
About the Host, Luca&Bruno
we are Luca&Bruno, we're Italian but we have been working and living in Barcelona for 11 years. Now we are back in Milan but we left a piece of our hearts in Barcelona and kept our apartment exactly as it was when we were living there.
We will be very happy to welcome you in Barcelona and hope you will enjoy your stay in our flat.
