The flat is in the neighbourhood of Poblenou, which is very lively area and I really enjoy living here. Sometimes I even forget that the rest of Barcelona exists, even if it's very close too! My neighbourhood used to be an industrial area. Nowadays there's a mixture of old industrial buildings, new technological companies, cozy small streets, etc. Some very nice parts mixed with not so nice ones. But I like the mix. And other people must like it too, as I very often find people shooting films around :-). It's very close to the beach, to markets, bars and restaurants. You can walk to the markets, to the beach, hire a bike to cycle along the beach, hire a windsurfing board, or walk to a nearby restaurant.
Poblenou is a rather busy area, within walking distance to shops and restaurants. It's also very well connected with other areas in Barcelona with 2 underground lines and buses just in front. In 15 minutes by underground you can get from my door to Plaça Catalunya (the very heart of Barcelona).
