Rooms are to rent in a 90 m², 4-bedroom apartment in the Poblenou area of Barcelona. The apartment is well equipped with everything you might need, including an oven, dishwasher, TV and AC, and has a welcoming feel to it. It would make a comfortable and charming home for anyone relocating to this area.
Poblenou is a quiet neighbourhood, away from the tourist destinations, with plenty to boast about from its proximity to the beach to its relaxed atmosphere, within easy access of the hustle and bustle of the city-centre but providing a tranquil escape too. Thanks to recent regeneration, there are plenty of parks for sunbathing during the summer or morning exercising.
Your by-the-beach Barcelona heaven
Say hello to Poblenou.
It's a beachside neighbourhood with a sporty, serene vibe. It's mellower – and more affordable – than heavily populated Barceloneta.
You have public transportation connections to Barcelona's most popular neighbourhoods.
Friends go to war here over a game of beach volleyball. Then laugh it off over a coffee on a terraza.
Want to enjoy the Barcelona beach life at a slower pace?
Poblenou is where you need to be.
What can I do here?
Relax. A lot.
It's what people do here.
Spend the day at the beach. Cool off in the Med. Grab a drink from the nearest xiringuito (beach bar). Oh yes.
Poblenou's own Rambla has shops, bars, restaurants and the rest. Its seafront promenade is perfect for cycling or rollerblading.
Poblenou was once an industrial centre. So it has lots of old workhouse buildings. They're now home to bars and apartments. It's a good vibe.
Plaça de Prim is the oldest plaza in the neighbourhood.
Once it was home to fisherfolk. Today it's home to fish restaurant Els Pescadors. It's one of those places you go to for simple, fresh food that tastes fine. (It's a little expensive, though.)
Plaça de Prim also has 3 ombú trees. You know, those huge gnarly trees with roots like a seething den of snakes. Photo op ahoy.
If you tire of being outdoors, you have good shopping in Diagonal Mar Shopping Centre.
In the 19th century, Poblenou was Spain's thriving industrial epicentre. This success earned Poblenou the nickname "the Catalan Manchester". Progressive.
