El Poblenou Apartment Rental Photos and Description

Apartment, 3 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 7)

CHECK OUR NEW PROPERTY 3668242 ITS AN AMAZING NEW APARTMENT WITH TOP QUALITY

An Unforgettable opportunity to experience Barcelona, staying in a unique design apartment. This flat has an exquisite taste. Each room has its own character giving the flat a great atmosphere.

The flat is located in Rambla Poblenou St. (pedestrian street). This street is the core of the Poblenou neighborhood. There are many cafes and nice restaurants. It is one of the most commercial streets in Barcelona.

Just a few minutes on foot down the Rambla Poblenou you have the beach of Barcelona and the Olympic Harbour. On walking distance you can also visit some of the icons of Barcelona: The famous Sagrada Familia by Antonio Gaudi. From there you can walk up on Gaudi´s Ave. to the Sant Pablo’s Hospital another icon of the Art Noveau in Barcelona. The modern Agbar tower is 5 min on foot, this modern building designed by Jean Nouvel that holds the water company. Some nights of the week it’s illuminated with color lights.

The flat itself is 123 sqm (1345sqf). It has two double rooms each with a queen bed and a full bathroom (bathtub). There is a third bedroom with a queen bed available if needed. The main bedroom boasts a large windowed balcony with a Elizabethan style armchair, from where you will have the chance to see how life flows on Rambla Poblenou. The large living room is devoted to details and to a mixture of styles. A smart use of color on the walls creates the necessary warmth, then the designer furniture, the leather couch, a Bose sound surround system and a large plasma TV and cable TV, are the punch, the ingredients that will make you fall in love with this home. The walls have been thought by an interior designer to give the flat that very stylish look. It took us more than a year to plan all the areas. Every piece of furniture is intended to be special for the room its located. The kitchen is a paradise of gadgets: refrigerator with TV, wine cooler, washing machine, dryer and all the gadgets you need to cook as a chef.

We are sure that you will love our apartment and its perfect location to discover Barcelona.

ADDITIONAL AMENITIES:

* Complementary bottle of Spanish wine and fruit

Awesome, loved it

  • 5 of 5

This was a great experience. The owner, Miguel setup our pickup from the airport and when we arrived the driver was waiting for us. Upon arrival Miguel's Dad (also called Miguel) a very sweet man was waiting for us and gave us a tour of the flat and all instruction on how to operate the appliances. The owner had left a bottle of red wine and a bowl full of ripe peaches which i thought was a nice touch.

The flat was clean, modern , well equipped and very nice. The flat has a balcony that faces the intersection and a great place to have your morning coffee or late night drinks watching people taking their kids to school, older people walking, younger kids roller skating. It is located in Poblenou area, a semi residential area full of trees and sidewalks full of life. It is a beautiful area full of restaurants, bars, bakeries, grocery stores, shops and whatever you need. You can spend a good couple of weeks just exploring the hidden gems in this neighborhood alone. Very friendly neighborhood and after a few days patronizing a couple of our favorite restaurants we were getting complimentary after dinner drinks. If you like to eat, drink and relax, this is the place for you. Miguel had also arranged for a taxi to take us to the airport. Right on time a very sweet lady cab driver showed up and too us to airport stress free. I recommend it to all my friends.

Awesome job Miguel.

We felt at home!

  • 5 of 5

My boyfriend and 20 year old son and I just spent over a week in this apartment and we loved it. We agree with the other reviews about the location and the feeling of respite it gives from the hustle and bustle and touristy sections of Barcelona. Poblenou does not have the old historic charm of other parts of Barcelona, but it is a peaceful neighborhood with its own charm. It's a place where you feel like a local. We could watch or mix with the many families that live in Poblenou and who gather in the evening with kids playing and teenagers skateboarding in the Rambla as is the Spanish custom. We rented bikes from a place down the street (Pedal Bikes) which turned out to be a great way to get around. We also found tennis courts very nearby (yes - red clay!) at the Club Olympia for very reasonable fees and went (by bike) every day. Miguel and his dad were very good hosts and made us feel at home with gifts of wine and fruit and helped us in so many ways. The AC and Internet worked just fine. The TV did not work but we didn't need it. Taxi stand right on the corner. Great bakery where we bought bread every day. We loved the foodie stroll with Aida. All in all a lovely time!

Owner's Response: Thanks for your nice comment. Our Poblenou flat is located on one of the most charming boulevards in Barcelona: The Rambla del Poblenou. Its out of the tourist crowds with very easy access to the most important sightseeing’s in Barcelona. The area has lots of local and cozy cafes and restaurants. We are glad that you enjoyed the local life. Regarding the TV I check it just after you left and the problem was that it was not set the right input. I just set the input 3 and everything is working fine again. We do offer Satellite TV (with all major channels). We want to thank you for staying with us. Its been lovely to have you as a guest at our flat.

Outstanding apartment - very well-equipped, perfect location

  • 5 of 5

We spent 4 nights in the apartment and we definitely want to come back. Apartment has 3 beautifully appointed spacious bedrooms, 2 excellent bathrooms and a large comfortable living dining area. Everything has been thought - the bathroom has Gel & shampoo (always annoying to buy a bottle for three days and then throw it out at the airport), the Wi_Fi was easy and fast etc...Kitchen was very well-equipped. We rented a mobile Wi_fi for the car from the owner which was very helpful as our rental car didn't have GPS. The owner's Dad welcomed us with a very gracious tour of the apartment in perfect English - absolutely no problem with the handover either way.

Now a word on location - PobleNou ("New Town") is an up & coming part of Barcelona - the apartment is right at the ramblas of this part of the city - literally tree-lined streets with a big pedestrian walkway in the middle and almost no traffic (just locals). It's about 10 blocks to the beach and you'll pass 20 restaurants, 5 artisan ice cream stores etc... on the way there. The building itself has a great fruit & vegetable store and a fantastic artisan bakery in the bottom - you get the idea. Subway is 2 minutes away - you really don't need a car.

So... couldn't be any better in my view - very comfortable for our family of five and we'd like to be back soon

Fabulous stay in Barcelona!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay at Miguel's apartment. It was very comfortable for our family of four. He neighborhood was very safe and pretty. We almost felt like we were living in Barcelona for the week.

The apartment was very clean and nicely furnished. The beds were comfortable (although the king bed was a little too big for the room and we couldn't get around it easily) Miguel was very helpful prior to put stay answering my email questions right away. The best thing we did was the foodie stroll with Regina! It was also easy to get a taxi and walk to the beach!

Best Flat in Barcelona

  • 5 of 5

We had an amazing trip to Barcelona thanks to staying in Poblenou! What a great apartment in a fabulous part of town.

Here's my review based on what I am always looking for:

1. Owner: As many reviews have noted, Miguel was very responsive before we left and answered all my questions. He was also super responsive when we were there. We asked for more towels and he showed up with them that day! Honest, kind and easy to work with.

2. Actual flat: My family has stayed in many places around the world and I can say this place is CLEAN! The bathrooms, the shower, the kitchen, the tile and grout.. all clean!

The layout is wonderful for a family (we were 2 adults and 3 kids under 9 and 2 grandmas for part of it!)

The balcony was our favorite spot to sit out in the afternoon for wine and cheese. The kitchen was well stocked for cooking and eating and easy to use.

The apartment building was quiet

The flat has the most AMAZING black out curtains we have ever experienced. Even my 4 year old slept until 9 everyday!

Location: Location to me is everything. I thought we would regret being away from the hustle and bustle of the city centre but we fell in love with Poblenou. The kids could walk outside with leisure. The best coffee, fruit, pizza, restaurants, bakeries... all within a 5 minute walk of the flat. School kids walking to school. Even a neighborhood parade happened when we were there! There is a park close by that my kids loved to go to after a day of sight seeing. We returned numerous times to the gelato bar and the restaurants at the base of the apartment. The workers knew my kids names and greeted them each day!

We are foodies and found some amazing restaurants in the neighborhood that were super inventive.

With kids we could walk to the metro in about 15 minutes. We walked to the beach in 15 minutes (In the mornings I ran to the beach in 5 minutes - the boardwalk there is unbelievable).

We rented electric scooters in the neighborhood.

Taxis are easy to get as well.

Thanks for the great spot Miguel and family! We will be back!

Rambla del Poblenou is one of the most enchanting commercial Boulevards of Barcelona. Its nice cozy cafes and nice restaurants where to have al fresco lunch or dinner makes this avenue a fantastic place to pass your vacation. Its very close to the Old town but you won't feel as crowded with tourists here. This nice Boulevard has lots of delicatessen shops, nice fruit stores and organic markets.

Its a pleasure to walk down la Rambla to the beach promenade. You can eat Paella relaxed at one of its nice restaurants and see the real Barcelona way of live.
