In the middle of the city. Little bathroom and little kitchen. Light and silence with a beautiful view of one of the oldest churches of the city.
Where is it?
My apartment is located on a quite street in the trendy area of Poble Sec. The neighborhood used to be an industrial district back in the 19th century, and many constructions date back from that time. Over the last 10 years the area has become very hip and trendy, with lots of cafés, restaurants, terraces, art galleries, theaters, etc. Just one minute away there is a plaza with several nice options to eat, have coffee outside, or a drink at night. However, the exact spot where the apartment is located is very quite, and there is not much traffic. A few minute walk from the apartment you can enjoy enjoy amazing views of the city from the Montjuic Hill, with many green areas and parks, ideal for a walk or pic-nic outside.
The old city of Barcelona is just 15 min walk, and you can walk down to the old harbor and the beach in 30-40 min. respectively. There are two different metro lines/stops less than 5 minute walk from home, however I usually cycle everywhere (happy to give you tips on where to hire a bike!), and I would strongly recommend cycling or walking as the best way to explore a city like Barcelona.
