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.

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.

  • We had a very good time staying at the Picasso Suites. It was easy to get around the city from the apartment, it was beautifully clean and everything seemed brand new. We had the roof terrace to ourselves whenever we used it and everyone was very helpful. Highly recommended.

  • Sono stata in questo fantastico appartamento 4 giorni ed e' stata un'esperienza fantastica, in pieno centro con un mercato molto carino sotto casa. Il portinaio molto gentile e ospitale, sono stata davvero bene e consiglio a tutti di provarla!!!

  • The Picasso suites are professionally run apartments. They have been tastefully fitted out and the everything has been thoughtfully designed, including the excellent exterior blinds to cut out the sun. Everything is spotless and well maintained. Our apartment was to the side overlooking the market and was very quiet. The shared rooftop terrace is a lovely addition to the flat and a really nice place to hang out. The location is next to one of the best markets in Barcelona (or the world) where you can buy amazing food - particularly fish and seafood. The kitchen in the flat is small, but it is fine for making meals for two people, after going shopping in the market. The arrival system is very efficient including electronic codes for entry to the building so that you don't have to organise meeting anyone. Our contact with the management was excellent and helpful. the price was competitive, and we were very happy with what we got for that price.

  • Everything was fine !
    Thanks a lot

    Très bon emplacement dans la "dreta del eijample" à côté d'un très joli marché et de la station de métro Girona.
    Appartement décoré avec goût. Tout fonctionne correctement. L'organisation est parfaite. Je recommande !

  • Picasso Suites was absolutely what we had wanted for our stay in Barcelona. The centrally-located apartment was immaculate, decorated in modern tones of white, black and gray with a kitchenette containing dishes and appliances. There was even a vase so we could buy flowers from the charming market next door.
    The roof-top terrace is an added bonus with a view of Eixample and environs. Can60 is the restaurant on ground level which features a daily light breakfast served by a friendly staff (Laura being our favorite.) Karolina, host Damian Harris' on-site point person, keeps "office hours" every morning in the restaurant answering questions on the apartment or on any number of tourist queries. She is a veritable Barcelona concierge. We availed ourselves of Damian's recommended taxi driver, Andres for our trip to the airport and would ask to be picked up by him next time as well.
    The six level building has an elevator, staircase and a sweetheart of a manager who will check your bags before check-in or after check-out. There is wi-fi in both the apartment and the restaurant.
    This home away from home gets our highest travel rating and provided the perfect hub from which to discover Barcelona by foot, bus or metro.

    Thank you very much Elizabeth for your lovely review of Picasso Suites! We were happy to hear that you enjoyed the character and atmosphere of our team and the place:) We love your CD and you definitely 'got the sun':))

  • Wonderful stay and what a great neighborhood. Karolina was so helpful in pointing out excellent restaurants, a bank and all the needed information.
    We want to come back sometime!

  • El departamento es como un hotel de 5 estrellas. Está en una excelente ubicación (a pasos de Paseo de Gracia y Casa Batlló de Gaudí), es impecable, moderno y funcional, idéntico a como aparece en las fotos (tiene aire acondicionado y calefacción). Demian y Karolina fueron muy correctos y siempre dispuestos a ayudar en todo (incluso nos facilitaron una lavadora y secadora para no perder tiempo yendo a un autoservicio). Todo excelente!!!

    Mariano gracias por tus palabras:) Nos hacen realizar nuestro trabajo con una sonrisa cada dia:)

  • Had a wonderful stay here for four nights at the end of October. The accommodation is just as it appears in the photos, beautifully clean, comfortable and everything you need whether you intend to eat out or cater for yourselves. From the start Damien's replies we're really prompt and helpful. The Picasso Suites are really well-situated, close to La Sagrada Familia and other major tourist attractions. During our actual stay , Karolina (Damien's assistant?) was really helpful, recommending places we shouldn't miss and a lovely restaurant for a special meal. Karolina is a definite asset and helped to make our little break in Barcelona even better.

    Carole, I am glad to hear that you had a wonderful stay in Barcelona:) My team and I are always there to help you enjoy Barcelona to the fullest:)

  • We stayed in the apartment for 1 week. We opted for the car service pickup which was excellent, on time, clean, and friendly and 45 euros. Karolina, Damien's assistant was present when we arrived to introduce us to the area and amenities.

    The apartment was at it appeared in the pictures. It was clean comfortable and had some great amenities like tea/coffee, toaster, and complete kitchen equipment for some small home cooking.

    The breakfast included is a piece of pastry and a cup of coffee nothing more. We tend to eat bigger breakfasts so we went to the supermarket right next door and bought breakfast items like eggs, milkd, bread, and ham. The market has everything from farm fresh groceries to home electronics so you will find it hard pressed not to find anything. The apartment is also located very close to Casa Mila, Familia, and metro stations.

    Damien himself and his associate Karolina were excellent and responded quickly to all questions and were very helpful. Check out was as easy as leaving the key in the room and walking out. We also opted for car service to the airport which was once again very nice and easy.

    Overall an excellent stay in an excellent apartment and we were comfortable the entire time! Don't forget to bring a convertor however because we did and we had to go to FNAC to buy one.

    I would highly recommend the apartment for anyone looking for a comfortable convenient apartment and with highly professional service from the owner!

    Michael, I am glad to hear that you liked your stay in my apartment:) As far as the breakfast is concerned, I sometimes miss those huge English breakfasts too...but what can you do;) when in Rome...Cheers!

  • The flat is very clean, spacious, and very well located, within walking distance of most of the places we wanted to visit. The service was perfect: pickup at the airport, nice welcome gift, help during our stay... Everything was perfect making our stay in Barcelona unforgettable.

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 ingredients at the market and utilize the kitchen.
