Perks for the Parents

Well located in the city near the beach with transport links taking you to Barcelona’s key sights in 20 minutes, this is an easy place to stay with children in the city. The hosts can offer a range of treats: tourist information, shuttle services to the airport, babysitting and concierge services (including tickets for the Nou Camp). The residence is near the Diagonal Mar shopping center, one of the best shopping destinations in Barcelona.

Why Kids Love it

The residence is 15 minutes walk from the beach - pack a swimsuit and bucket and spade and get ready to make the most of it! Toys are provided. The hosts can arrange entry to the Camp Nou for a discounted rate. Surfing, yoga, running about on the beach and swimming are key activities in the area. It is a short walk from playgrounds and parks. Note that there is only 1 bedroom, with a sofa bed and air bed available for kids, who will sleep in the lounge, and that baby items are not provided.

Things to Know

The balcony is child safe although small children may need supervision. The residence is on the third floor with an elevator. Car hire is not entirely necessary; there is free parking nearby. The sofa in the lounge folds out into a bed to sleep a further 2 guests and an air bed can be added. Please note, there is no kettle or iron at the property. Tourist licence number HUTB-008388.

About the Location

The former Olympic Village of Poblenou is located ideally between the beach and the historical city center. It’s easy to walk to the beach (15 minutes), local parks (under 10 minutes) and to get around the city itself, with bus lines and metro stations on the same street and a journey of approximately 15 minutes into key sights including La Rambla. Barcelona El Prat airport is 15 minutes away by car.

Accommodation Details

One double bedroom apartment with large lounge with dining area and sofa bed, well equipped kitchen with Siemens appliances, and spacious bathroom. The bedroom has a double bed; the sofa bed sleeps 2 comfortably and there is space to add a travel crib if you bring one. There is a balcony with comfortable armchairs and a table, plus city views.

Style Notes

Bright, light, modern and sophisticated. The color palette is pared back with grey, white and natural materials, and it is neutral and uncluttered. We love the sunny balcony with wicker chairs, the luxurious walk-in shower with giant Grohe flower shower head and the sleek kitchen with its stainless steel appliances.

We are Valentina and Joan, we decided to make the most out of this corner of our beloved neighborhood of Poble Nou. Professing our faith in the fusion of traditional materials with modern, creating a dance of bright colors and shapes that the most pleasant day, and night the best nest. We had not gone but comes Sofia, and we need to fly to create the new nest. We have lived at ease and give us the opportunity now that some of you have this wonderful home for a few days.

We had a great time at the Diagonal residence. Great, family friendly neighborhood with parks and large green spaces close by. Valentina was welcoming and gave us tips on where to go. We have a 4 1/2 and a 2 year old boy who liked the apartment very much, however they would have enjoyed a wider selection of toys and books.

We loved our stay at Valentina's place. It was a nice respite after a whole day of travel and sight-seeing about Barcelona. It was great to come home to a place where we can relax away from the hustle and bustle of the city center. We definitely felt at home at Valentina's place and would definitely use her place again in the future and recommend it to family and friends as well. Her place was conveniently located to parks and public transport. Valentina was great in getting the keys to us, especially since we arrived in Barcelona before she would be able to meet with us personally.

We had a wonderful stay at the Diagonal Residence. The apartment was immaculate & our hosts were very generous & helpful. We loved the Poblenou district, with its great park, lovely local restaurants a short walk away, & proximity to the beach. Would return in a heartbeat!

Poblenou, Barcelona

From the sea to the city

Largely unnoticed by tourists, Poblenou is a large neighborhood running from the sea to Sant Andreu and is a great base for a ‘live like a local’ trip. An up and coming creative area, art studios, galleries and lofts fill the former factories and warehouses. Ideal for families, it is near the city’s best beaches, the center’s key attractions and plenty of open green spaces and parks, unlike the center itself.
