jakob - unexpected barcelona landlord
I had a great stay in this perfectly-situated Poble Sec flat. The view of the city from the terrace is a delight—the pictures do not do it justice.
Though lacking an oven, the kitchen is otherwise very well equipped—remarkably so, for the size of the flat. The bathroom is unusual and has its quirks, but everything works well.
The tatami-mat bed is SO COMFORTABLE that I'm thinking of ways to get one for my home! Sleep is easy on such a quiet street—the only noise came from the Greek chorus of pigeons roosting outside the window and providing commentary on the changing weather. The shades kept the room nicely dark.
Markus was very helpful when I accidentally locked the keys inside the apartment; he responded promptly to all inquiries.
I would not hesitate to stay here again.
Although Jakob wasn't present he did call to make sure we had arrived ok. The apartment was as described, small but modern and nicely designed. Great roof-top terrace. Really liked the popular and lively neighborhood. Highly recommend.
What a relief not to have any problem occurring during our stay.
Stunning penthouse, perfectly located, amazing views and nice cocooning area.
We loved the athmosphere, there is all you need.
5 stars for commodity, convenience and utility.
Last but not least Jacob is the perfect host !
We'll come (website hidden)
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.
