|Minimum Stay||3 - 5 nights|
This modern apartment has a swimming pool, a balcony and you'll stay nearby the beach. A perfect combination for your holiday or city trip in Barcelona! After a day in the city or on the beach is it nice to come home to this comfortable and spacious apartment.
Divided by the Eixample’s long Diagonal road, the New Town is mainly residential. There are a couple of ultra-modern buildings and an old, brick chimney or two, just for good measure. The weird and wonderful Parc del Poble Nou is worth checking out. And you can’t help but like the equally odd-looking Torre Agbar. The charming Rambla de Poble Nou, provides as pleasant a stroll as you could wish for. You’ll reach the beach eventually. But it’s impossible not to stop off for a terrace coffee.

Great views over the city and to the sea. Good location in walking distance of Poblenou Ramblas and the seafront. The apartment needs maintenance: very bad smell in the shower room (ignored when we commented on this at check in) and missing tiles in the en-suite. Lounge shutters faulty. Heating and air con temperamental. The website said there was a modern espresso machine but there was no coffee machine at all (we bought a cafetiere)and the only kettle was a stove top 'whistle' kettle with the whistle missing. Website said there was a safety box but there wasn't.
Fabulous apartment - spacious, stylish and spotlessly clean. The view from the small terrace is panoramic - I don't know why they don't make more of it on the website - you can see the Sagrada Familia, the Torre Agbar (lit up blue at night) and also the Med. Rebecca, the English lady who checked us in was delightful. We called WaytoStay next morning to report a leaking shower and it was fixed by the time we came back from sightseeing, so a big tick for their prompt reaction to a problem. The apartment block is gated and has a concierge/security man who buzzes you in and out so is super secure. Not that the area feels in any way dodgy, quite the opposite. We didn't try the pool but it looked lovely - no loungers or deckchairs but a grassy area to sunbathe - bring your own beach towel. When we were there a corner shop right beside the apartment had just opened a few days previously so a great place to stock up on cava, diet, coke and snacks. The nearest metro station is Poblenou - a 10 minute walk, although busses and trams are closer. The Poblenou Ramblas is also a 10 minute walk away and just wonderful - some tourists but mainly where locals of all ages come to eat and drink - the atmosphere is terrific. We gravitated there everyday whether it was after sightseeing for coffee and pastry or for dinner. The beach is a 15-20 minute walk from the apartment and you can walk along it all the way to the bottom of the more well known Ramblas, although it would take you an hour. We walked along as far as the Villa Olympica Metro which is also close to an entrance for Cuitadella Park which has a fabulous fountain which apparently Gaudi helped design as a young man. Villa Olympica also has the Frank Gehry designed copper fish which you can see glittering from viewsights all over Barcelona so well worth stopping for to get a closer look.
It was our fourth stay in Barcelona - we just love it there. If we come back we'd definitely book this apartment again.
Dommage que toutes les lampes ne soient pas fonctionnelles et qu'un store de chambre n'est pas voulu ni descendre ni monter mais cela n'a pas empêché de passer un bon séjour!!
Het was al aangegeven op Zoover maar het bleek opnieuw dat er rioollucht uit doucheputje van een van de badkamers kwam. Daarnaast weining keukengerei om zelf even te kunnen koken.
Prachtig uitzicht en goed bed in vooral de woonkamer,
Понравилось: расположение, вид в 15-го этажа- отлично, добираться до центра вполне удобно. Квартира большая, удобно обставленная. Спать комфортно, дом тихий, шум от соседей и с улицы не беспокоит.
Минусы: постоянно вырубались пробки при включении кондиционера на отопление (было очень холодно); ужасный запах из душевой кабины и ванной.
По поводу уборки. Условия не предполагали какую-либо уборку, когда мы въезжали, квартира была не сказать, что очень чистая, средне убрана. Если не придираться, то все в порядке.
Ruim appartement met fantastisch uitzicht over de hele stad. Redelijk complete keuken. Tram en bus voor de deur. Wel wat achterstallig onderhoud o.a. Rolluiken, rioollucht in badkamer (opgelost door er een bakje overheen te zetten), kille verlichting. Veilige buurt met voldoende supermarktjes, cafe's en bakkers in de buurt.
