It is a friendly area with many restaurants, shops and bars where you will be able to appreciate the real Barcelona way of life!

From the sun-drenched roof terrace there are views beyond the market towards Montjuic & the Olympic stadium and behind to Gaudi's magnificent unfinished church la Sagrada Familia. Enjoy a glass of wine on the roof and watch the sun setting (or even rising again) over Barcelona.

If you are arriving at the airport, you have several options: The easiest and fastest is to pre-reserve a taxi (about €45), the driver will collect you at the arrivals terminal, with your name on a sign and help with your luggage.
- By bus; the Aerobus (40 mins) last stop is on Plaza Catalonia, a 20-minute walk from the building.
- Or the train; arrives at the Sants train station where you have the option of taking the metro L5 (towards Vall d'Hebron (4 stops) to Verdaguer then walk), or taking a taxi.

FAQ's:
1. ARRIVAL: I'm happy for you to check in early or check out late if there are no other guests before or afterwards, otherwise check in is from 16:00 and check out by 11:00 to allow plenty of time for the flat to be professionally cleaned. You can always store your bags with the doorman or in the restaurant. If you have a weird flight time let me know and we can work something out :-)

2. How do I submit a reservation request?
Enter your dates & click the Book It button.
You’ll find the Book It button on a listing or in a message thread. Make sure to enter your exact reservation details before you click, then review all details from the checkout page.

3. What is Instant Book?
The Instant Book feature allows you to book instantly without having to wait for my confirmation. This is a bit like a pre-approval without the need for a me to manually pre-approve each guest. I have made this listing available through Instant Book, once the reservation details and payment information are submitted the reservation is automatically confirmed on the site.

4. How does the Airbnb payment system work?
The payment system is secure, reliable, and convenient, supporting many currencies.
When your reservation is accepted, the payment is processed and collected by Airbnb in full.* Whether the reservation is two days or two months away, they hold the payment until 24 hours after check-in before giving it to me. This gives you security that everything is as expected.

5. How does Airbnb handle security deposits?
A security deposit helps protect hosts and guests from accidents that occur during a reservation. For example: spilled wine on the rug, a broken window, or an unreturned key.
Details on the process:
24 hours before check-in, the guest's credit card is authorized for the amount of the deposit.
48 hours after the checkout date, the authorization is released if the host does not make a claim.

  • The apartment is spotless, comfortable, and has everything you will need to enjoy your stay in Barcelona. Damien and team are extraordinarily professional, timely with requests, and helpful! The location can't be beat. This apartment is perfect for business travelers. One consideration - if you are sensitive to traffic sounds while you sleep you will need earplugs or to sleep on the sofa bed as the bedroom window is above a busy street.

  • This was my 4th stay at Picasso suites. That fact says it all! The service team are friendly and efficient, the apartments are clean, the location is great,the roof terrace is lovely and the market next door is amazing. And most importantly the price for this is very reasonable. I have not been able to find a better rental in Barcelona at this price (And I've tried hard!)

  • Couldn't have asked for a better apartment or host in Barcelona. The apartment was in a perfect location - a nice little walk to so many wonderful places including Sagrada Familia. Damien and his team took great care of us, checking in with us on a daily basis. The market next to the apartment building was wonderful - great place to look around, get groceries or coffee. Apartment was the perfect size for a couple or a couple of friends. Fairly quiet overall. Very clean. No complaints. Transportation to and from the airport was organized by Damien and his team which was very helpful as well. Would recommend staying here, or any property that Damien manages.

  • We arrived to the apartment on Sunday afternoon to the sights, sounds and aromas of the Sunday street market all around us! We couldn't wait to drop off our bags and explore! The adjoining market, La Concepcion is abundant with everything we needed and the location is excellent. We walked everywhere. The apartment is clean and well resourced. Thank you Damien and Karolina for a wonderful stay and being such responsive and efficient hosts. This was a great Airbnb experience for our family!

  • Eine Woche Picasso Suite in Barcelona kann nur weiterempfohlen werden! Das Appartement ist schick, super sauber und die Gastgeber Karolina und Damien sind einfach klasse. Wir fühlten uns rundherum betreut und haben gern das Angebot angenommen, täglich ein kleines Frühstück in der Bar Can 60 einzunehmen. Dort kann man auch lecker essen! Das Appartement liegt perfekt für diese tolle Stadt. Viele Sehenswürdigkeiten kann man zu Fuß erreichen und man hat rundherum viele Möglichkeiten einzukaufen oder einen Drink zu nehmen. Für uns war es auch toll, am späten Abend auf der Dachterrasse ein Glas Rotwein zu genießen. Diese Unterkunft ist absolut weiterzuempfehlen! Allen folgenden Gästen einen ebenso schönen Aufenthalt!

  • Lovely clean apartment in a fantastic area. Barcelona is such a small city, it's easy to reach all the tourist hot spots from Picasso Suites. Booking a breeze through Damien and the tiny niggles we reported on arrival were sorted the very next day. Our taxi transfer was charming and good humoured, even though we were delayed for 1.5hrs on the flight out. So many amazing sites visited, incredible food, wonderful friendly people. Travel via Metro or taxi, both are good value in this bijou funky city. Can't wait to return. Thanks for having us.

  • The flat was clean, organised and well equipped and the roof terrace proved ideal for morning coffee and evening drinks. The flat was also ideally located for our purposes being in a more residential district although within easy reach of the main attractions. Damien and his team were also extremely helpful in responding promptly to any queries whilst providing some very good recommendations of places to visit. In conclusion we would certainly use the Picasso suites again.

About
Having traveled and lived all over the world I appreciate the simple pleasures and the benefits of staying in a home rather than a hotel. I started off with sharing my spare rooms through Airbnb and now with the help of my little team we have a dozen private luxury apartments, however we strive to maintain the family feel and love to share the best of Barcelona with you. My assistant Karolina, the cleaning team and I are here to help. Feel free to grab a drink from the fridge and I encourage you to buy some amazing (email hidden) and utilize the kitchen.
