Perfect Place, Great Location

  • 5 of 5

This apartment was perfect for us as a couple. We both cooked in the apartment (what ingredients to find in Barcelona!) and went out to dinner in the area. The Poble Sec Metro stop is right down the street, and we used the Metro system extensively for all of our travels throughout the city. Beyond that, Mar and Susan were great hosts with lots of communication. We'll definitely come back!

Owner's Response: Perfect Guests, Great Communicators Glad you enjoyed the very central location of your home in Barcelona and the very near Poble Sec Metro stop for discovering the city sights, as well as the well-equipped kitchen that encouraged you to cook those delicious ingredients found in the nearby food markets and shops! We are looking forward to your return, you've got a home and good friends here and you are welcome any time!

El apartamento es comodísimo, tiene bellos balcones para disfrutar del clima de Barcelona, un amplio salón, Wifi, cocina equipada, y baño remodelado. El cuarto es muy luminoso y las camas comodas. La anfitriona provee información y ayuda si es necesario.

Just what we needed

  • 5 of 5

This was an excellent apartment and also very well located for our tastes. It was very clean, with updated furnishings, quite spacious for our needs (two adults and one baby). Although it is not in one of the highly trendy areas, we liked that and had everything we needed around us (bakeries, vegetable stores, cool pinchos bars and restaurants, nice people), and it was a 10-15 minute walk to Placa d'Espagne (sp?), one of the most important metro and train stations. Moreover, both Mar and Sylvia were so friendly and accommodating. It was a pleasure meeting them. The only thing that might be difficult for some people is that there is no elevator (However, I was happy to take the stairs with all of the eating and drinking I had done!!)

About Mar

My name is Mar and I speak several languages, enjoy meeting people from all over the world. I like walking uphill around Monjuic in the quiet morning hours to watch the panorama and do a good workout, return home, shower and go, as the locals do, to have breakfast and read the paper at one of the many cafeterias nearby.

At the apartment I enjoy a speedy wi Fi 100 mega

Mar purchased this apartment in 2015

Why Mar chose El Poble-sec

The very central yet quiet location provides a safe haven to come back to rest after a day's hard work (as sightseeing is). It is near the subway and bus stops, besides you can walk everywhere safely and quickly.

What makes this apartment unique

It is very near the Ticket's Restaurant, well connected by all transport means, within walking distance to many monuments and sights, has got an organic food supermarket in the same street, the air you breathe in this area is less polluted due to the vicinity of the Monjuic Hill Park and wooded area, than air on the noisy and crowded Ramblas or in the rest of the city.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We were very happy that we chose this apartment to stay in while we visited for a week in mid-October. The flat is very secure, clean and private with quality fittings, and very spacious for two people. It is well-located just outside the medieval city wallwhile having easy access to the centre, either through a comfortable 15 minute walk to the metro (line 2) or a 3 minute walk to the bus. The very friendly owner was available to help us without ever intruding on our privacy.
