Perfect for those wanting to escape from the noise and bustle of the main touristy areas, right next to one of the most beautiful parts of Barcelona, Montjuïc, yet only a short walk away from the historical centre, Las Ramblas & Plaza España. We also have two kittens.
We live in a beautiful bright first floor apartment in a quiet traditional building right in the centre of El Poble Sec, a really vibrant area which has many amenities and is very close to the city centre by foot and served with Metro - green L3 less than 5 minutes walk away, with many local shops and supermarkets nearby.
The double room has a bed, small table with chairs and chest of drawers with a space for hanging clothes and it also opens directly out onto the terrace.
We have free WiFi.
Fresh clean towels and bed linen are provided
Music is our speciality and we are very interested catching many musicians and DJs at various events going on in and around the city.
We hope you'll really enjoy your stay us.
We are happy to provide you with any information on what's going on in the city during your stay.
If there is anything we can help you with during your stay please feel free to ask.
English, Spanish, Portuguese and Japanese spoken.
If there's anything else you need to know then please feel free to contact us.
Looking forward to meeting you,
Simon and Leilane
Guests have their own double bedroom and are welcome to use the kitchen, and the terrace (during the day).
The bathroom is shared but only with us.
As much or as little as required, we are on hand to help and assist with anything we can.
We have very good knowledge of the city and can recommend some great bars, clubs, restaurants, museums and beaches to visit etc.
Just let us know what you are interested in doing and seeing and I am sure we will be able to help you.
Including a few great local places which are off the touristic beaten track.
Poble Sec has a cozy small town feel in a big city, there are many great bars and restaurants within a few minutes walk.
It's a really beautiful and friendly neighbourhood.
On Carrer Blai there are many tapas bars with outside tables with a very lively atmosphere, many offering great selections of Pinchos for around 1€, just take a plate from the bar and help yourselves remembering to keep the sticks so the waiter can work out how much to charge you.
La Rambla and El Gotico (the historical centre) are a 20 minute walk away
The beautiful park of Montjuic is right on our doorstep and is a really beautiful place to go for a walk and have views over the whole of the city or enjoy a picnic.
At night there is the 'Magic Fountain' show, 10 minutes walk up the road. A beautiful colourful fountain display synchronised to a soundtrack.
It's possible to walk or cycle almost anywhere in the city.
The Metro - green L3 is less than 100 metres away.
Many buses serving the entire city and taxis can be accessed on Av Paral-lel (also less than 100 metres away)
Because we are fortunate to live in such a quiet apartment we try to keep the noise down especially in the communal entrance / hallway, so please be considerate if you're coming back home late and try to be relatively quiet.
Please don't invite other people (who are not guests) back to our apartment without speaking with us first.
You are welcome to use the terrace at anytime of the day but please refrain from using it at night because of the noise, so we can respect our neighbours.
We don't allow smoking inside the apartment but smoking outside is fine.
We like to keep the apartment clean and tidy so we can all enjoy the space.
Please can you take your rubbish with you when you leave, there are plenty of carrier bags available under the kitchen sink, we do not charge a cleaning fee but we'd appreciate that you help us by taking care of your own rubbish (there are many bins outside, close to our apartment).
Please note, when you arrive at the apartment for the first time (until you have the keys), always ring the bell 'Principal 1' (bottom left-hand corner of the panel) or phone us so we can let you in, please don't just walk in, even if the door is open or someone is leaving, as we have had problems with guests entering the apartment building and knocking on the wrong doors which understandably upsets our neighbours.
We're keen travellers who loves meeting new people, having new experiences, and very keen on music.
We enjoy socialising and sharing time with friends old and new.
