HOW TO GET HERE:
If you plan on arriving by car, please know that there is the possibility of renting a parking space for only €20. The address is "Carrer Valencia 334" situated on the corner of Valencia and Girona Streets.
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.
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.
This will be your home not a hotel, make yourselves comfortable and relax :-)
Just a couple of obvious things:
- Please no pets & no smoking in the house (fine of €250)!
- Please respect the neighbours and keep noise down to a minimum.
- Please no drugs on the premises
- Please insure that the front door is closed behind you.
- Be very careful of pickpockets on the streets of Barcelona!

The place was clean and located in a great area. There's a market right next door and lots of restaurants nearby. Wifi was spotty, but the property manager responded to the issue quickly.
Our stay at Picasso Suites has been a highlight of our honeymoon to date! Damien, Maria, Karolina and the team have been nothing short of an absolute delight to deal with at every interaction - from our initial booking months ago, to liaising with us before our arrival, to greeting us at check in, to surprise honeymoon flowers delivered to our door. to a smile at the front desk when wandering down to the included breakfast, until check out. We booked an airport transfer less than 24 hours before our arrival, which Damien kindly arranged. As promised, we were punctually met at the airport by a lovely driver who helped us with our luggage and drove us to the apartment. The check in process is hands down the best I've ever experienced. A short survey a few days prior guides you through a number of options and services that the team offer in order to make your stay the most enjoyable it can be - from airport transfers both ways, to pre-stocking the kitchen, to guiding you through booking parking and suggesting options for late check out and luggage storage, as well as providing information about tours and GoCar hire - so many things we hadn't yet thought about. The breakfast that is included is so good - the staff at Bracafe make a sensational ham and cheese sambo, and they're open from about 6.30am until at least 2pm most days, so there's no rush to get to breakfast if you sleep in. Their hot chocolate is next level - you'll need to eat it with a spoon! The apartment is in a lovely, safe area; right next to a beautiful flower market (well worth a browse!!), and sandwiched between some lovely cafes and bars. It is located a close walk to a number of Metro stations, and a nice wander to Las Ramblas and the bustling cafe and tapas bar districts. There are a number of supermarkets close by, but it's worth a wander through the back streets of Las Ramblas to pick up some awesome local produce! The apartment itself is even lovelier and more immaculate than pictured. The floorplan is perfect for either a short or an extended stay; well-appointed with ample toiletries and kitchen utensils, a sofa for additional guests, and a generous sized bedroom with loads of available powerpoints and storage. The bed is comfy, the shower is hot, and the upstairs terrace (that we didn't know we'd have access to - massive bonus!) is an absolute treat - it has stunning panoramic views over neighbouring rooftops, and all the way to the tip of La Sagrada Familia. It is the perfect place to crack a bottle of wine at sundown. We only had two, very minor issues: my iphones had issues connecting to the wifi; however my husbands' samsung phone connected with no issues. The shower is also a little slow to drain, which meant we kept showers a little shorter than normal; again,...
The location of Picassio Suites 1.3 Paseo De Gracias was excellent. From the time we booked the apartment we got periodic updates from Damien with respect to our arrival and how to access our apartment. The apartment was very clean and met all our expectations. We opted for the pick up service from the airport which was great but the fridge stocking option was not worth it given that you have a supermarket right in front of the apartment.
Damien, Karolina and Maria were all extremely helpful. Check-in was simple and did not require a specific meeting time which was very nice. The hosts gave us great tips on things to do and see. Apartment is wonderful with great amenities. The roof was a very comfortable place to share a glass of wine after dinner. Location is great, walking distance to sights/beach/restaurants. The free breakfast was also a great touch! Nice sandwich and a great cup of coffee. I will definitely be recommending this apartment to friends!
A modern well located apartment. Damien and his team are fantastic! The first apt. was not exactly a fit for us so Damien switched us to a different one after the first night and it worked out great. The Mercado next door along with a full grocery means you don't need to go anywhere else to shop. The continental breakfast in the café (Bracafe) next door was a nice extra. The staff at the café was super friendly. And on the first day when we arrived we went to the café/restaurant on the other side (OnTime) and had a wonderful prix fix lunch and the staff their was equally nice. When my wife needed help with buying a bedspread she wanted to take home from the store on the corner Marie from Damien's team was there to help translate. Damien and his team make your stay feel like a hotel with a personal concierge. Lastly, if you book from Damien in the building don't forget to check out the great terrace on the roof. Thank you Damien!

About the Host, Damien
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 assistants Karolina and Maria, 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 ingredients at the market and utilize the kitchen.
