Best Accommodations in Barcelona yet!

  • 5 of 5

This was my fifth trip to Barcelona and my favorite place to stay so far. The apartment is beautifully remodeled with fantastic views and lots of natural light. The location is great, close to the old city, but not thick with tourist traffic. Just a couple blocks away is a wonderful botanical garden with lots of trails.

The owner, Montse, was wonderful. She was easy to contact, and went over and above to make our stay perfect. Highly recommend!

Could not have asked for better!

  • 5 of 5

We had an amazing time here. The apartment was beautiful, and the location was great. We were within walking distance of great sites and restaurants. The view from the apartment balcony was stunning and perfect for enjoying the sites and a glass of wine. Above all, the owner was extremely accommodating and helpful. We can't wait to plan our next stay here.

Absolutely perfect!!

  • 5 of 5

We booked the apartment for 6 adults and 2 children. The apartment has three bedrooms and one sofabed in the living room, and is very comfortable and spacy. We took advantage of the remodeled kitchen and cooked breakfast everyday. Centrally located and within walking distance of Maremagnum, Columbus monument and Las Ramblas. We were able to see so much of Barcelona without having to pay for transportation, mostly because of the location! Montse was great, and made sure we felt right at home. She even put up some Xmas decorations for us! We will certainly be back in the future!!

Great Location, Apartment, and Host!

  • 5 of 5

When booking, we understand that the photos don’t always tell the whole truth. Usuallly, the apartment isn’t as grand as how you’re led to believe. However, we were pleasantly surprised when checking in to the unit and seeing that the photos were actually holding back! The apartment is better than most hotels. Very clean and modern. Best of all, the water heater was perfectly sized for apartment and actually supported two hot showers simulaneously. The location was perfect, being only a couple minutes’ walk from the apartment to the end of las ramblas and the board walk. Best of all was Ms. Montse, the host. She didn’t mind the numerous questions we had before booking and was very prompt in her responses. Will definitely book at this location again when we come back to Barcelona!

Perfect

  • 5 of 5

The apartment is stunning, spotlessly clean, very modern and great location. Overlooking the Trade Centre and marina, you could see all the cruise ships and Columbus statue. I chose it for its location and although the nice old traditional flats might be lovely, you don't know what is beneath you and how noisy the street could be at night. Only two minute walk to La Ramblas it was a perfect location. And a balcony to watch the sunrise from

Great accommodations and great location.

  • 5 of 5

Monte's apartment was exceptional. She provides everything for a comfortable stay. We only stayed three nights and relied on the many wonderful Barcelona restaurants in the area for our dietary needs and didn't use the great kitchen she provided.

Being by the port was very convenient for us since we arrived by cruise ship. The apartment is only a short walk from the Columbus statue at the south end of the La Ramblas. Also, only a short walk to the metro which we used often to get to many of the Barcelona sights. Located on the seventh floor of the building, the apartment is above the noise of the city and the area is not as busy as the Las Ramblas which can be a madhouse with both locals and tourists. Also located at street level below the apartment are small markets that provide most necessities, including ice.

Montse, was a great hostess. She willingly changed our arrival meeting time to accommodate our needs and she also arranged a cab to the airport for our departure. If you are going to Barcelona, I highly recommend using Montse's apartment. It is great place for two couples to share and very reasonably priced. Muchas gracias, Montse.

Why Montse Blasi chose El Poble-sec

Perfectly located and spacious at the top of Av.PARAL.LEL street. You can go perfectly walking to all touristic areas In front of Columbus statue and near Old and GothicTown, Port Vell, Las Ramblas, Boqueria Market, Plaz REial square, Maremangnum shopping center etc.1 minut walking to metro. Facing the sea/arbor and with Colon monument views from the living room and bedroom.

Montjuic Mountain is just behind the building where the apartment is located. From there you can see spectacular views of Barcelona; is recommended to up into the red cabin cable next to the Miramar restaurant and enjoy an aerial view of the city.
