This apartment has been created with love and good energy. It certainly is a cozy and comfortable, quiet and peaceful place, despite being in the middle of the "movida" of Barcelona.
The apartment is located in the center of Barcelona, in the neighborhood of Poble Sec, tourist and youth area with many bars and restaurants typical (though it is a very quiet floor). There are supermarkets very close and small and charming stores.
Just one minute walk is the green lung of the city on Montjuic, ideal for walking or visiting the Miro museum, the MNAC (National Museum of Contemporary Art), the Poble Espanyol, the Olympic Stadium, as well as beautiful gardens and the Botanical garden of Barcelona.
At night, just 10 minutes walk, you can witness the spectacle of the Magical font in Plaza España.
Walking you also arrive in a few minutes to the old town and the beach of Barceloneta is faraway less than 4 km.
If you prefer public transport, there is metro and bus nearby that connects directly to the main tourist stops (green metro line 3).

Sebastian and Elena's apartment was perfect. It looks exactly the same, if not better than the pictures. The bed was comfortable, and the bathroom was really clean with a nice shower. It was definitely the perfect place to rest after being out all day. I would stay here every time I come back to Barcelona if I can.
The neighborhood is really cute, and there are lots of places to eat just outside your doorstep. It's also really easy to hop on the metro and get around town. The neighborhood is vibrant and lively, but the apartment is super quiet.
Sebastian and Elena were super nice and helped us with whatever we needed. They even had their friend pick us up from the airport for less than a taxi would cost.
Overall, the experience was the best I've had through Air B&B.
The apartment is in a lovely part of Barcelona - surrounded by plenty of bars and dining options. Sebastian was there to meet us and show us around the apartment. It was very comfortable and quiet made all the better by Sebastian and Elenas thoughtful guides and suggestions for what to do/ where to eat. A great place to stay!
Pasamos una estancia genial en casa de Sebastian & Elena!
Nos acogieron en su casa para enseñarnos todo y darnos consejos de visitas, bares, restaurantes... Nos daron un plano de Barcelona con tarjetas de bares/restaurantes.
La casa es exactamente como en las fótos, el baño es incréible!!! Nos gustó mucho el barrio : cerca del mar, de la Rambla, bares/restaurantes, mercados.
Sebastian & Elena estuvieron a nuestra disposición por cualquier cosa/pregunta.
Era muy agradable sentirnos como en casa.
Seguro que volveremos allí para nuestra próxima estancia a Barcelona!
We were made to feel very welcome, our hosts gave us lots of useful information about where to go, places to eat etc. The apartment was lovely with everything we needed for our stay. We loved the area, slightly off the really touristy track, but a lot more authentic and only a short walk away from some fantastic bars and restaurants. We will definitely be returning !!
Our experience with Sebastian and Elena's Barcelona apartment — and with Seb and Elena themselves — was wonderful. They were very gracious in helping us to arrange delivery and pickup of a mobile wifi hotspot we'd ordered from the US prior to departure, and their friend Diego who provided (reasonably priced) transportation to and from the airport was a delight.
The apartment itself was the perfect home base for our stay in Barcelona. It is cute and clean and has everything you need for your stay, including a well equipped kitchen, comfortable bed, small balcony (no view, as it faces the backs of other buildings, but great to let in light and fresh air!), and an awesome rain shower head. Wifi is quick, and there are speakers for you to connect your device to play music (no TV).
The location was not quite as central for sightseeing purposes as we had hoped, but what it lacks in centrality (at least for the things we wanted to see), it made up for in neighborhood charm/being off the beaten tourist path. We enjoyed ducking into various tapas bars in the neighborhood and finding lots more locals than tourists. It's close to a major street with good metro and bus access and at the foot of Montjuic, home to the Font Magica, Museu Nacional d'Art de Catalunya, Poble Espanyol and more.
Word to the wise: In Spain, there are a couple floors in buildings before the first floor, so third-floor walkup is more like fifth-floor walkup. (We could all use a little more exercise to work off those patatas bravas, right?)
Overall, a fantastic place for our stay. Seb and Elena are wonderful hosts: communicative, easy to reach and clearly explain everything at check-in. Great Airbnb experience.
Seb and Elena were excellent hosts! Not only was the flat beautiful, and in a great location, but Seb & Elena were gracious enough to let us store our luggage at theirs while we waited to check in. The stairs could be a little killer after a day full of walking thru the city, but it was worth it to stay where the locals do. The building was very quiet, and had tons of great restaurants (go to Quimet & Quimet!) and bars close by.
