Stay as a local in this gem of apartment!
Everything about our stay went perfectly, from pre-arrival to departure. Jacob texted me the day before we arrived just to double check when we would be coming and made arrangements for us to text him when we landed. He ran into us on our way to the apartment and helped guide us to the building's door. Once inside, he showed us around and then sat with us for a good 15-20 minutes, describing areas around the neighborhood and city, and pointed out some great places to eat.
The apartment itself was clean and just as described and pictured. It was quite spacious and plenty of room for just the two of us for a week. The apartment and neighborhood was generally quiet, but very close to the metro as well as shops and restaurants. It felt more like a local neighborhood than staying on the Ramblas. We felt very safe, even when walking back very late at night. (A note to those who might be concerned about the graffiti which is over the entire city of Barcelona -- you needn't worry about it being a sign of danger. In fact, we found it to be quite beautiful in a lot of places.)
Overall, we had a great time in the city and felt completely safe the entire time we were staying at this apartment. Jacob was excellent in communicating with us and I could not ask for a better host. Highly recommend!
Catherine, thank you for your kind words and for the time you took to write such a detailed review. I think there is no clearer proof than this to show how much you enjoyed your stay in our "ACOMODIS" apartment. It was a real pleasure for us to be your hosts and provide you with genuinely Spanish attention. We love that everything was to your liking during your visit to Barcelona. Hope this experience motivates you to come back again. Here at ACOMODIS, we have different apartments around the city. Choose which neighborhood you would like, and we make it possible. Until the next opportunity, greetings!
Warm & Welcoming Apartment in a Colorful Neighborhood
First of all, Jacob and Elizabeth of Acomodis are superb and delightful. They made our stay from our reservation to our send-off smooth and easy. We felt welcomed. Elizabeth answered all our emails in a thoughtful and timely manner. The morning we arrived in Barcelona, we contacted Jacob and he met us at the apartment early (ahead of our check-in time). He spent a lot of time answering all our questions about the apartment, the neighborhood and Barcelona and showed us all sorts of places on the map to sightsee. And, best of all, Jacob arranged a taxi to pick us at 3:30 A.M. on the day we left. Thank you so much. And our driver was wonderful.
The apartment was extremely clean and welcoming. Its high ceilings and large windows made it feel spacious. The wifi worked perfectly. The furniture was functional and comfortable. The lighting was good. The kitchen, although small, has a big refrigerator and gas stovetop (we prefer it over electric, which a lot of the places have). It also had a good toaster and coffee maker (I think a moka pot, which we loved) and all the dishware and pots and pans one might need. We were more than satisfied with the water pressure and hot water for the shower. It was easy to relax and have meals there.
The neighborhood in Poble-Sec was interesting. This part of the city feels more like you’re staying amidst the locals. Just steps away are lots of restaurants with outdoor tables. We had a delightful meal at one of them. Everything you may need is close by. You can walk to many attractions from the apartment. The metro is very close and the subway system is easy to navigate for a non-native. Mont Juic is within walking distance and we went the Joan Miro museum there (which I highly recommend).
We really enjoyed our stay in the neighborhood and at the apartment.
What a wonderful review, James. We want to thank you for your words, for your time and, above all, for the emotion you convey with this comment. We are very happy to read that your stay in our "ACOMODIS" apartment was worth every second and that it was also a perfect place to enjoy with the family, as well as to discover and travel around the city. It was great to host you all -excellent people to deal with. We hope you all have made magical memories on this trip, and take a little piece of Barcelona in your thoughts. All the best to you all! Greetings!
You do not want to stay here
We booked this online so, we didn’t really know what we were getting into.
This is located in a dirty, crime-infested neighborhood with spayed graffiti everywhere.
Pictures lie – this is a very bare-bones apartment located in a former industrial building. It was fairly clean however; it was infested with small black bugs.
The little air conditioner could not keep up with the moderate temperatures of September.
The beds are extremely hard and are like sleeping on a board. The pillows are like using a sandbag for a pillow.
If you are taller than about 5’ 8” you will not be able to stand upright in the upper lever without hitting your head on the concrete ceiling.
I have travelled all over the world and this is the worst review that I have ever written.
This, more than an appreciation, is a fallacious testimony.
We wonder when you say “We didn’t really know what we were getting into” if you mean that you didn’t really share with the other people of your group the information of the accommodation, to avoid any disagreement. Sometimes it happens, fortunately it’s an exception. Then, this is not our fault because there are not discrepancies between photos, descriptions and accommodation.
The neighborhood is far away of being dangerous. Barcelona is a cosmopolitan city and there are locals and people from all over the world, residents and visitors.
Barcelona has graffiti in many places like shops on their main doors. We don’t understand what the problem is with it.
The apartment is located in an industrial building. This information is in the ad. Apparently you didn’t read it. There are plenty of industrial buildings and churches in Europe that have become residential buildings, shops, theaters, cafés, etc. It’s a plus for us because it makes it different compared to a standard apartment. It is also called sustainability and the results are amazing and beautiful spaces. That is why we mentioned it in the ad.
There are no bugs. There are no problems with mattresses and pillows because they are replaced frequently.
There is no little air conditioning. There is a very new and powerful air conditioning. Otherwise previous guests would have complained before.
You stayed for a week and you never communicated with us during your stay. If you had contacted us during your stay we could have offered you another of our apartments according to your needs and standards.
Checking pictures and description with all friends and family members before booking is a good advice.
Great location! Able to walk to most tourist locations with ease. Convenient store located directly across the apartment. Less than 30 minutes from the airport.
Thank you so much, Mary. We are delighted to know you had a great time staying in our "ACOMODIS" apartment. It was really lovely to meet and host you all. We are looking forward to welcoming you all back again soon. Until the next time. :)
Very thoughtful, informative host. Property was great and creative space for our crew of 6 in great neighborhood.
That is wonderful Laura, we are so happy to know you liked our service and our “ACOMODIS” apartment. See you next time!

We are Elizabeth and Jacob. We speak English, French, Spanish and Catalan. We have always enjoyed meeting people from all over the world and that's why since 2007 we started offering our apartment to people who want to come to Barcelona to have a nice experience. We like what we do!!! :) *I and my husband Jacob are the real owners of the apartment. We are not an agency or representatives of the owners. Then, we are involved and we take care directly with our guests in case of any need or help. *Our apartment is located in a quiet area in the center of Barcelona. It’s not easy to find a quiet place close to everywhere (Las Ramblas, Mercat de la Boqueria, Plaça Espanya, etc.). *Our apartment has a lot of natural light. It has 3 exterior large windows. *We accept credit card except the cleaning fee. I mean we accept credit card for sure. No surprise on arrival. *Our apartment is a legal holiday apartment with license from the Government of Catalunya.
ACOMODIS purchased this Apartment in 2007
Why ACOMODIS chose Sants-Montjuïc
We got this property because it's in a nice location in Barcelona. We have this property here in Barcelona city center because it's a nice place to stay for a few days as it's calm and comfortable and also it's a great point from where you can have access to the main attractions.
What makes this Apartment unique
From our property, which is located in a completely renewed old factory (in the past - nowadays it's a residential building -), you can experience living in an authentic, original, spacious and unique barcelonian loft. As it's in a very quiet street it's very calm. Also, there are plenty of services nearby, like a supermarket of fresh products just a few steps from the location. At only a few steps from the apartment you'll be able to taste the best and delicious 'Churros con Chocolate'. Also, there are no words to explain the great Tapas you'll find at Quimet Quimet at only 2 minutes far from the apartment.
