About the property

Located at the foot of the Montjuic mountain, which offers a breathtaking view over the city and many parks, the apartment was completely renovated in 2012. Its two balconies overlook a quiet street and a square with trees, and the neat inside offers new and modern equipment in a traditional atmosphere. The neighborhood of Poble-sec is really typical of family life in Barcelona, you will meet few tourists and enjoy a quiet stay after a day of sightseeing in the city. The metro is less than 5 minutes from the apartment and two bus routes within 200 meters will take you directly to the beaches of Barceloneta in 20 minutes or the Ramblas in under 10 minutes.

About frederic noguer

I'm french but fluent in English ;) and live in Barcelona for years now where I run a company dedicated in importing furniture and antiques from India. I will be happy to share my enthusiasm and knowledge about this great city.

frederic noguer purchased this apartment in 2012

Why frederic noguer chose El Poble-sec

I started with touristic rental 8 years ago while I was living in Amsterdam. I discovered then a real enjoyment to welcome travelers travelers and to share with them my local places and to help them to discover the unusually seen in touristic trips. I know for having traveled quite a lot how important is to have the right contacts in a city !!

What makes this apartment unique

Great Neighbourhood central and well communicated.

Neighbourhood authentically spanish, quiet and... in the last years becoming the bohemian place to be, attracting more and more artists, musicians and self employed young entrepreneurs.

Apartment spacious, comfortable et totally equipped.

Property was in a great location.

  • 5 of 5

The property was in a perfect location. In an area that was all local people and close to everything. In fact in the seven days we were there we never needed to take a bus, cab or the metro. Grant it we walked 8-10 miles a day but really took in the city. Within 1 block was of the apartment was a coffee shop, multiple bars with great tapas, a butcher, a olive shop, 4 or 5 grocery stores, a bakery and restaurants. Within 5 minutes walk was a no vehicle street with multiple bars and restaurants with people sitting outside enjoying a beer or a wine and tapas.

We didn't get a second set of keys, make sure you ask for them. The apartment had Netflix on a good size flat screen tv. Within 2 blocks is the metro and bus stops and 1 block is a large hotel that was easy to grab a cab if needed. We have traveled all over Europe and had the best pizza we ever had 2 blocks away at IL Golfo De Napoli. Don't miss out on the Barratta Pizza!.

All the appliances worked perfectly but there is 3 flights of stairs to walk up to the apartment. Would classify this as very nice but not upscale.

Charming and convenient location

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I spent 8 days in Federic's Barcelona flat. The flat had all we needed and found the beds comfortable. The front door was very secure with 5 solid metal bars that simultaneously locked the door. We felt very safe in the neighborhood which had convenient shopping steps away. The Metro (subway) is within 2 blocks which made getting anywhere convenient. I highly recommend this apartment. It was clean, comfortable and very accessible.

Convenient, quiet, and comfortable location with easy access to Barcelona's many sights

  • 4 of 5

Convenient, quiet, comfortable location for an extended stay: non-tourist area but within easy walk to local restaurants, groceries, drug stores, banks, even an urgent care center. Within walking distance to to the dazzling Montjuic area with its vistas, hiking and museums.

Very close to Barcelona's world class, tourist-friendly Metro and bus system which gave us easy access to Barcelona's Old Town and its Gothic, Born and nearby Eixample districts which are full of destinations but very busy.

Apartment itself quite suitable for a couple and perhaps one child; third floor location without an elevator worked for us but would be a challenge for some visitors.

Finally, Frederic, the owner, was very helpful in promptly retrieving and safeguarding a passport left behind in the apartment and only discovered after we left town for a week.

Owner's Response: Thank you Dave for your review, I was happy to be of help about the credit cards and passport that you have been forgetting in the apartment at the end of your stay . One precision, the apartment is located on the second floor of the building and not on the third floor. And effectively, it might be challenging to reach the second floor through the stair case for elder people or people with disabilities. Kind regards, Frederic

Very nice apartment, great location.

  • 5 of 5

This is a very nice apartment with all the amenities. There are markets, breadshops, and many eateries nearby. The metro and buses are steps away. It is a great place to access Barcelona from. Frederic was very informative and responded quickly to our emails and we were without mobile phone. He also provides a landline for quick access. I have to say we never had to call him except upon our arrival as everything we needed was there. Thanks Frederic.

Super location on a quiet side street with everything you could want close by. Very helpful landlord

  • 5 of 5

Spacious and well equipped apartment on the second floor. Our landlord, Frederic was there to meet us when we arrived and took a lot of time to familiarize us with the place. He also gave us some good tips for places to visit and restaurants to try.

The neighborhood was safe and friendly. There were all sorts of shops along the street. In the beginning we intended to cook for ourselves and there were certainly lots of meat, fish and produce shops just a few steps away. But the restaurants in Barcelona were so good and relatively inexpensive that we never got around to cooking. However, you easily could cook your own meals there if you wanted to.

We enjoyed the balcony with its colorful flowers and watching Spanish movies on the television.

The metro was just two blocks away.

Very convenient.

There are two bedrooms with one small inconvenience being that you must walk through the master bedroom to reach the toilet and bathroom.

All in all a very good place. We loved our time there and would highly recommend it.
