Jakob is a really pleasant host. The flat is perfect and very well located. We enjoyed our stay in Barcelona. Thank you very much Jakob.
Had a great time in Barcelona. The flat was great and the location was perfect. Good food right outside the door and close to a metro stop
Communication with Jakob was great, first by mail and once in Barcelona on the phone. He is very friendly and helpful.
The attic is good. The terrace is a real pleasure, with amazing views of town and even of the greenery of Montjuic, which is so close. The living space is small but well designed. Kitchen is very well supplied and organized with a big window with views.
Poble Sec is a interesting neighborhood, with popular bars and theaters. We went to Barcelona to attend the Festival de Teatre Grec and the location of the attic was very convenient.
We will like to come back.
Great host, lovely flat, truly amazing terrace, perfect location – many thanks!
Jörg and his girl friend, very nice short term guests. Highly recommended!
Our long stay in Barcelona wouldn't have been the same without the beautiful views and comfortable design of Jakob's apartment. The balcony is great for enjoying a quiet morning with the birds and the view, especially in the early Spring. The apartment may be somewhat small for two people depending on your space needs, but when the weather is great and the patio available it shouldn't be a problem (we were there for a few months and it was absolutely fine for us). The kitchen is very cute and nicely designed, and has everything you need. The apartment is on the top floor of the apartment building, hence its' stunning views, but never fear, there is an elevator to take you up and down.
Jakob was always very kind and friendly and he'll make you feel at home.
As for location, Poble Sec is a nice thriving community and it's not nearly as over crowded or touristy as other parts of the city. There are many convenient stores and vegetable stands within a few minutes walking distance and Blai Street, very close by, as some of the best tapas in Barcelona. Escaping to the landscaped park/mountain of Montjuic is easy, it's just a block away to the bottom of the mountain. A walk to the Ramblas/Gothic quarter is about 20 minutes, and if you prefer the Metro, there's a stop less than 5 minutes away to take you almost anywhere in the city. It's a great location, not too close to the bustle, and not far away either.
We fell in love with Barcelona and the apartment and would love to go back.
Laura stayed for five months. I particularly appreciated her and Dan's easy way of communication. Nice and quiet guests. They left the apartment in an acceptable state, and I would always gladly welcome them back.
This was a fantastic place to stay in Barcelona and I would recommend it to anyone. The best feature of the flat was the large terrace with great views of the city, where we sat aand enjoyed dinner on our final night. The location was great too; only a short distance walk from the port, he beach and la ramblas.
The apartment is a perfect choice for smaller budget. There is everything you need, many usefull things for cooking, cleaning,etc. The view is stunning, tarace is huge and perfect for evenings with sangría. Bed is big, but a bit hard, yet it is not hard to accustom.
The whole apartment is perfect for 2 people. The surrounding is calm and silent, yet only 3 minutes from nearest metro station. 20 metres from flat there is small cheap supermarket.
The only downsides were pigeons living on the other building near one of the windows, and some people occasionally walking there (or living) which due to the lack of cover was uncomfortable (but window cover was planned to be repaired so better to ask about it)
Overall, good experience, Best value for money and Awesome view. I recommend!
Nous avons passé une semaine absolument superbe, en couple avec notre fils de 2 ans.
L’appartement est doté d’un ascenseur, qui monte jusqu’au dernier étage ce qui est assez rare pour un attico. Il est bien équipé, et très bien entretenu. Le propriétaire venait juste de le repeindre.
La vue est superbe : sur les toits de Barcelone, avec les montagnes en arrière plan, et Montjuic juste derrière : de la terrasse, on peut notamment voir le sacré-cœur, la Sagrada Familia (un peu caché par une antenne). Elle est également idéale si vous aimez les levers de soleil, car la vue EST est bien dégagée.
L'appartement est bien placé, a proximité d'une rue très animée pleine de bar a tapas. Le métro est à 5 minutes à pied, les Ramblas à 10-15 minutes et nous avons mis seulement 30 minutes pour rentrer de l'aéroport.
L’hote est très sympa et soucieux du bien-être de ses guests : il a de plus été très flexible sur les heures d’entrée et de sortie dans le logement.
Nico Mar & family are the kind of guests any host can only wish to receive. Very nice people, reliable, clean & orderly. Thank you! Hope to see you again!
The highlight of this unique studio is the large terrace and the terrific views of the mountains and hills that surround Poblesec. Even on a chilly day, the sun hits about 50% of the time and it is a delight. Fontrodona is a quiet street with the much more active Blai right down the way, always full of life, and on the weekends, festivities, tapas, you name it. Montjuic is a short hike away, or by bike you can conquer the mountain. So fun! And the large bay window makes working on a laptop, reading or writing a joy. The kitchen is small and well equipped, while the bathroom is larger and equipped with a hand held shower and a Japanese style bathtub. And the futon sleeping arrangement is cozy. We were very happy here for two months, with easy access by metro, bike and on foot. The Raval is a blast, and great to leave behind for a quiet night's rest in Poblesec, which is multi-cultural and full of families as well as artists. Just great. And Jakob is very accommodating. We'll be back!!
The apartment is really nice! Its in the centre, and just a few minutes walk to the nearest metro (paral-lel) It has everything you need for a short or long stay in Barcelona. The best thing about the apartment is the roof-top terrace. We spent many nights there having drinks, bbq, and just enjoying the beautiful view. I highly recommend the apartment to anyone, I would absolutely stay here again.
