Overview

Poble Sec Apartment Rental Photos and Description

98 SQM, 2 Bedrooms, 1.5 Bathrooms, Studio, Large Kitchen,Sleeps 4

Nice modern apartment 98sqm totally refurbished in a bohemian building of 1910. It is composed by:

* 2 bedrooms (with king and queen size bed)

* Large sitting and dining room

* Big and fully equipped kitchen

* Sunny covered veranda of 12 square metres

* 1 complete bathroom and 1 smaller toilet

* 1 studio for working

* 1 complete room at disposition that you can use as a wardrobe and leave your luggage in

The apartment has individual gas heating and air conditioned.

Parquet floor and half timbered original catalan roof.

It is situated at the last floor(3 floor, sorry no lift, be fit to climb the stairs!) of a small and quiet building with few neighbors, it is very sunny and lightened all day long. Even if there is no lift and you have to climb 3 floors of narrow stairs we thought that the effort is highly rewarded. The apartment is quiet, sunny, spatious and full of caracter. It's an old small building with only 5 apartments and with wooden catalan typical ceiling inside that makes it unique according to us !We rent the entire flat, it is not shared. You will find that you have plenty of space to relax and access to all the comforts of a modern home. You are invited to cook, enjoy a sumptuous breakfast on the veranda or relax on the comfortable couch.

It is situated in Poble Sec neighborhood, that stretches from Plaza España to the port, nestled between Avenida Parallel and the enormous park areas on Montjuic, one of the city's most beautiful and interesting hill. The 'Poble Sec' has managed to maintain its charm and authenticity better than other Barcelona's neighborhoods and it is full of bar and lively restaurants. In fact, the Poble Sec is where you can find one of the best traditional tapas bar of Barcelona, Quimet Quimet (Poeta Cabanyes, 25 - very, very close to the apartment). Only at 20 meters you will find Carrer Blai: the main pedestrian street of the neighborhood, along with the charming Plaza Sortidor there are the ideal places where to enjoy a cocktail, a coffee or some delicious food in one of the many open air terraces.

The Poble Sec offers a wide range of cultural activities and features several popular theaters. 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 decide to walk up to the top if you feel fit or take the funicular from the Parallel metro station. The Ramblas, Raval and Gothic Quarter are a short 10 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 or Plaza Catalunya. The Poble Sec is also connected to other parts of the city and important tourist attractions by metro (lines L2 and L3 as well as several bus lines that are only 150 meters away from our apartment).

About Bruno

Hi we are Bruno and Luca, Italians living in Barcelona for the last 12 years. We have purchased this house in 2005 and decorated and furnished for ourselves reflecting our own preferences. We hope that you will enjoy this personal corner as much as we did over the years

Bruno purchased this apartment in 2005

Why Bruno chose Poble Sec

Even if there is no lift and you have to climb 3 floors of narrow stairs we thought that the effort was highly rewarded. The apartment is quiet, sunny, spatious and full of caracter. It's an old small building with only 5 apartments and with wooden catalan typical ceiling inside that makes it unique according to us !

What makes this apartment unique

We fell in love with this apartment when we sat on the veranda on the back of the house. Sun is entering through the veranda all the way inside the hallway and change the colors of the house. There is plenty of space and even if it is very close to the center and in a lively neighborhood during the nights it's very quite and you can sleep fantastically.

Most Perfect place to stay

  • 5 of 5

The most comfortable apartment, relaxing, everything there that you can want in an apartment - well furnished, a good neighborhood, views, great local shops and cafes and bars, public transport that goes to the best visitor places is just down the road. Bruno and his local assistant where so comfortable and friendly people to be in contact with. Beds are maybe a little hard which might be a problem for some and the staircase to climb to the apartment is steep and narrow and this has to be taken into consideration if you have reduced mobility.Would be staying at this apartment when back in Barcelona. Highly recommended.

Perfect location, wonderful apartment, great hosts

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this wonderful apartment in Barcelona. The neighbourhood was lovely - off the beaten path a little, but with so much to offer (tapas, bars and fun just half a block away, bike rentals just up the street, groceries just across the street, subway close by, etc.). We could walk pretty much anywhere in the city we wished - but had the convenience of a subway station nearby when we had enough walking. The apartment was clean and well equipped…the beds were comfortable, kitchen had everything we needed to prepare a few meals at home. The apartment is up some narrow stairs, but it made us feel like we lived there - rather than just staying at some boring hotel. We would definitely stay here again and will recommend this apartment to anyone we know travelling to Barcelona. Thanks so much for helping us out immediately when we had any questions or issues. You all (Christina, Asha, Bruno, Luca) made our trip awesome!

Great apartment and great host

  • 5 of 5

We very much enjoyed staying in this spacious apartment in a working class neighborhood of Barcelona, at the foothill of Montjuic just off Paral.lel and walking distance to most of the center city. It gives you a nice sense of the everyday rhythms of life in Barcelona. Unlike the situation with many rentals, Bruno (the owner) resided in this apartment for many years so it's got many personal and homey touches and an especially well equipped kitchen. We also especially appreciated that Bruno could not have been nicer about revising our reservation dates when our plans unexpectedly changed, which he was under no obligation to do. One caveat: the apartment is at the top of three flights of steep, narrow and slightly uneven stairs - it's no problem at all if you've got normal coordination and stamina, but you'll need to be careful hauling your luggage up and down. It's well worth the effort.

Barcelona okay

  • 3 of 5

Overall it was fine for the price.

The location was the greatest, it's actually a little off the beaten path. But we felt totally safe the whole time there and it was quiet at night time, which was nice for my 5 year old and parents and I. I feel that with this mix the Ramblas were actually a 15 to 20 minute walk, and nothing really close, the port was at least a 20 minute walk.

I was not happy that the WiFi didn't work in their apartment. So I was unable to use my cell phone or tablet (to Skype and research directions). The reason I was given was that it's because my stuff is from Canada. But it worked in Starbucks and any other public WiFi locations. I also didn't appreciate that there was no DVD player, for my daugher's down time.

But it was a good price.

Owner's Response: I am sorry for this review, we do our best to keep customer satisfied. But there are some remarks that have to be done to it. In the description there is a map showing exactly the apartment position and everyone can easily check before booking where the apartment is. It is close to Ramblas that are 10-15 minutes walking distance or 2 metro stops away, also old Port is only 15 minutes walking distance. We regret that Wifi has worked with every and single host we had in the past but not in this case: we showed clearly in our smartphones that there was WIFI in the apartment but was not catched from the customer's device. Also there is a cable to connect to the internet but the customer tablet didn't had a slot to plug it. We have been also asked to have air conditioned on : being in May this was not necessary at all, but still we gave the possibility to use it with temperature outside of 22 degrees... must have been penguins in the flat . We were given a verbal "suggestion" that apartment should have phone at customer's disposal, but there is no telephone although there is a telephone/internet line and everyone can wonder why.... Finally there is no DVD listed in the amenities.....maybe we will buy one for the near future, thanks for pointing that out as a "must" have item

Great & comfortable appartment

  • 5 of 5

The appartment was the perfect base for our stay in Barcelona! It is big, extremely comfortable ans very nice furnished. There was nothing that we missed and we really enjoyed having breakfast in the wintergarden, every morning. The owner even provide guest with information for tourists and personal recommendations of restaurants and bars. Whenever I come back to Barcelona I would stay at Bruno´s appartments, again!
