What a great space! The 'beach loft' is just full of delights: architecturally, it's a really interesting renovation (a former workshop turned into spacious living quarters); and Maria and Jordi have equipped it brilliantly – it has absolutely everything one could need (particularly brilliant catering facilities) and, in addition, is full of fascinating artworks and installations. It is a brilliant – and very comfortable – place for hanging out.
Equally, it's in a terrific neighbourhood. Extraordinarily tranquil after the buzz of the old city, Poblenou has a hip, relaxed vibe. The apartment is only 2 blocks away from the vibrant Rambla of Poblenou with its cafes, restaurants, foodstores, greengrocers, craft stalls and seemingly non-stop paseo. At the same time, it's only 2 blocks from the beach – good swimming, great seafood restaurants. And it's an easy stroll into the old city along the seafront or through the Ciudadela Park – or, if you're feeling lazy, it's just a few stops in the Metro which is up the street.
Maria and Jordi couldn't have been more welcoming or helpful. They met us when we arrived; they had a bottle of wine on the table waiting for us; they filled us in on things to see, places to eat/shop, Catalan culture, cuisine, art.… And they were always on hand with advice and recommendations after that.
The best possible place to day if you want to experience Barcelona!
Maria and Jordi are extremely warm, helpful, the contacts with them are really perfect!
The apartment is big, well located and functionnal, but light and noisy at night.
I had the most wonderful experience staying in Maria & Jordi's Loft accommodation.
Their Loft is such an amazing space. I just loved it. It's full of charm, warmth and lots of interesting art to enjoy. It is incredibly spacious and the perfect place to stay for my stay in Barcelona. Just a VERY short walk to both the beach and subway - the location was perfect. Jordi offered to help with restaurant recommendations in the local area and was available 24/7 if we needed advice.
Maria & Jordi were amazing hosts. Both so incredibly friendly and hospitable to our needs, allowing us to check out when it suited us.
It was my 3rd visit to Barcelona and definitely my most favourite accommodation in BCN. I think I have found my new Spanish home when I return there next. I highly recommend staying at the Loft... Quite simply, a pleasure.
Thank you Maria & Jordi. I will be back. See you again.
We spent a wonderful time at Maria and Jordi's appartement. Their loft is absolutely lovely and definitely a perfect place to stay in Barcelona.
You are so closed to the beach which is perfect for a midnight bath :).
Their advice were also very helpful for finding good restaurants ;)
I will recommend this place to any couple who want to stay in Barcelona in a charming environment.
When travelling to Barcelona during summer together with a friend of mine, we had very little time to find an apartment. After a couple of hosts who did not answer, I came across Jordi and Maria's Loft in Poblenou, and was immediately in love with their tasteful decoration. Everything went super smoothly, and the hosts are some very friendly and attentive folks! It was my 5th time in Barcelona, and whilst I had stayed in the old town a couple of times, I really found this mixture of city live and beach time very entertaining and pleasurable! The apartment is very close to the centre and to the beach, as written in the despription, and has the great advantage of being in a safe and quite area. The Loft is spacious and the hosts did not hesitate to welcome us with a bottle of cava and provided all the necessities for a good holiday. What is best though, is the creativity and love for the small things this apt transmits - every day you wake up you find cute little drawings, stylish lamps and so on that make you feel warmely welcomed and at home! The kitchen is well fitted. The bathroom was just fine and there was plenty of warm water. When leaving, the couple let us leave late, as our flights left at night, something very much appreciated.
We enjoyed our stay there, and are sure others will too!
We hope to see Jordi and Marta sometime again, as Hosts or Guests!

Une rencontre avec un couple formidable et très sympathique.
Un loft atypique, dont l'empreinte d'artistes se fait ressentir dans les moindres détails. Une cuisine plus qu'equipee, un séjour très vaste. Une chambre sur mezzanine confortable.
Nous vous le recommandons fortement !!
I spent 2 weeks in Jordi's and Maria's appartment, and had great time there: it's close to the beach, metro, and some great local restaurants. Artistic ambience of the appartment makes it a great place to spend a holiday!
I loathe being looked at through windows and I distaste overly fresh air in indoor areas. So this was my place to be! Alas, the apartment does have a milk glass door to the front street. But since the door has to be closed at night, leaving no space for unwanted breezes or curious glimpses, no prying promenader will ever have the faintest clue of what might or might not happen inside. Further, the loft sports a 1.5 square meter window at the roof, but that's far too high to be a cause for concern, and it cannot be opened. At first, given my predilections, I was a little worried because of the Airbnb approved photos, which conveyed a light and airy impression on me. But there was instant relief when I saw that the photos were a far cry from the true light setting. Not being distracted by visual information exchanges with the outside world, I could more closely inspect the beauties of the apartment itself, its delightful artwork, the design furniture, and the artsy feel of the place. Not to ignore the efficient hosts and the prime location of the loft between subway and beach. So, if you want *real* intimacy, this is the place for you to be!
Maria and Jordi are the sweetest hosts, who went far to make our stay pleasant. Though we experienced some noise from neighbours and street, we were happy to stay in this gem of an artists´ home.
Many Thanks for all Warny! We are delighted to have met you and hope to see you again soon! Kisses for Sinne!
Con una amiga en común nos hemos alojado en casa de María y (website hidden) espacio es una mezcla de tranquilidad ,encanto ,arte y confort.
Recomiendo el piso y a sus anfitriones por su cordialidad y todo lo que ponen de si, para que sus huéspedes lo pasen genial!!
Aran(their pet), Maria, and Jordi are absolutely fabulous, incredibly lovable, and so much fun to stay with - the best hosts ever! I was lucky enough to stay with them during my trip to Barcelona. Staying with htem in shuch temple of art is a fantastic treat that I strongly recommend to anyone headed towards Barcelona. They are both so laid back and full of information about the best places to eat, drink and dance in the city. I felt like I was at home and living with my best friends. They do an amazing job of keeping the place clean and I enjoyed their art everywhere. I will never stay anywhere else when visiting Barcelona and I suggest you book in advance since i'm not the only one who feels this way.
