We are ideally located in the Eixample neighbourhood, between Plaza Catalunya and Sagrada Familia. Whether you visit Barcelona on holidays or for a business trip, this location allows you to enjoy Barcelona in an easy and convenient way: in 10 minutes you can access most tourist attractions as well as the major business centres. 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.

Transport:
Being so central you will probably walk everywhere, but...
- Metro / Subway stations
L4 - Girona (yellow line to the beach, 3 stops)
L5 - Verdaguer (Sants - Barcelona's Main Station)
Bus lines to almost everywhere from the Mercat de la Concepció, buses: 43, 44, B24, N7 - (website hidden)

Thanks for considering our apartment and I wish you a fantastic stay in Barcelona.

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 not 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.

  • Comfy apartment, great location, terrific value, professional and attentive hosts. Pros: wonderful market next door; attractive modern apartment, friendly free breakfast. Cons: some traffic noise in our front apt; tiny second shower, aircon in lounge but not bedrooms, all minor things which would not deter us from a return visit. Recommended.

  • Great experience! Apartment location was very central and the Mercat de la Concepcio next door was a treat. Karolina was great when we had an issue with some lights and responded very quickly.

  • From the start, Damien was very prompt with his communication and this continued throughout our stay.

    The apartment is spacious, modern and very clean! It's also in a great location for all activities with plenty of local shops bars and restaurants on your doorstep. Damien made us feel extremely welcome with a bottle of Cava already chilling in the fridge on our arrival! Many thanks, it was a lovely surprise! The cafe underneath served us breakfast every morning from 8am with a warm friendly smile. The rooftop terrace is a welcome bonus on a typical sunny day in Barcelona.

    I would definatley recommend this apartment! We had a fabulous holiday in Barcelona made significantly better by Damian's wonderful apartment and hospitality.

    Thanks Damien!!

  • this apartment is comfortable and big enough for 6 persons. it is gut located and you can walk to some sight-seeings. The Restaurant under is very friendly and helpful for visitors. Damien and his crew don't really speak Spanish but they left a very good explained letter (English) with the instructions of the place. Unfortunately we didn't find the right coffee for the machine and at the end of our stay we didn't have a good internet connection but all in all I will recommend them.

    Response from Damien:

    I and all of my team of course speak Spanish but I was on holidays the week you came (sorry but I have to travel too) and my replacement for that time didn't have much Spanish. I'll make sure the correct coffee is in the apartment now that I am back in BCN, sorry about that. Internet has had a complete revision now.

  • Super location. We had an extraordinary week in Barcelona and found the location of the apartment very central. The roof top was a great place to take in the fresh air.

    Damien, the host was most gracious.

    Highly recommend this for a short or long stay.

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.
