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! (€250 fine)
- 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!
Our stay at Picasso Suites was lovely. Room was just as advertised, and Damien and his team were fantastic! After a poor lodging experience elsewhere in Barcelona, we booked at Picasso Suites last minute and Damien and the team were very quick to accomodate us, making it a very smooth and comfortable transition. Would recommend 100%!!
The appartment was very clean, with good decor and was in a nice part of Barcelona making it easily commutable with good transport connections nearby.
The road noise at the front of the building can make it difficult to sleep so if you are light sleeper ear plugs are recommended and if there are large groups of people using the roof terrace late at night it can be loud if you sleep on the top floor (floor 5).
There were building works next door to the appartment which we weren't warned about in advance which was a shame as we got woken up early on the week days. That said, the staff are all very helpful and respond to emails etc very quickly and sought to resolve any problems as best they could and promptly.
Overall i would recommend staying here.
Damien & his team were very professional and communicated very effectively throughout the process, receiving multiple emails prior to our arrival to ensure a smooth check-in procedure. He was also very accommodating in letting me change my method of payment w/o any cancellation fees, so much appreciated.
The apartment is not your typical Airbnb property as it's owned/listed/managed by a real estate group vs being an individual's personal home, so apart from a less personalized feeling it shouldn't change your expectations.
The apartment was clean, comfortably furnished, TV worked (hardly watched it), wifi very reliable & fast, kitchen appeared clean (never used it, except to chill some cava), A/C had some on/off issues but worked fine (chilled main living space SUPER cold but not much movement to other rooms), bed was ok (not Westin Heavenly Bed comfortable) but after walking all over town was sufficient (albeit a bit short for this 6' 2" guy), bathroom was surprisingly big for a European apt with solid water pressure and sufficient hot water, being on the 5th floor I would have expected a bit quieter but we did have some 4am revelers on Sat night & some consistent traffic noise throughout the nights, but plenty of space for two with bags & large closet w/ a safe.
Breakfast (coffee & pastry) at coffee shop around the corner is included, a nice touch and just enough to get you started before a day full of tapas.
The apartment is very conveniently located just north of old town, a 4 euro train & easy walk or 30 euro taxi from BCN, but in the perfect spot to walk to Sagrada Familia, Gracia, Park Guell, Barrio Gotic, La Rambla & even Barceloneta/beach for the ambitious.
Good location in Barcelona for the sights and yellow line for the beaches, a little noisy due to road ( especialy when Barcelona win the champions league ;) !
but soon get used to this and the location makes up for it,
flat is on the top floor so great access to roof terrace), can see the Gaudi Cathedral from the flat (just) and terrace!
nice and spacious well maintained, hosts ( maria and Katerina) were very helpful sorting out arrival and providing baby stuff for us at no extra cost! + at the front desk daily for advise on trips and transfers,
some great places to see on the doorstep ( market, resultants etc)
only thing would be nice would be another fan or too for the bedrooms ( aircon only in lounge)
lovely trip all in all!
Perfect experience -Damien and team were helpful and friendly, providing lots of pre-arrival info and assistance. The flat was beautiful and in a great location. Breakfast was a really great touch, as was the welcome bottle of cava. Huge thanks for making our time in Barcelona that much better! Highly recommended!
The experience was perfect. Right from the check in process to the information provided and to the check out process everything was just perfect.
Damien gave us great tips about restaurants and bars to visit...... Which we just loved... Couldn't get better. The apartment is centrally located in a upmarket and safe neighborhood. The pictures don't to justice to the actual place it's even better than the pics. Clean place and very comfortable beds with enough storage for a family of 4. Kitchen is well equipped and the complementary breakfast is awesome.
This is the best apartment in Barcelona. I really enjoyed to be there... Thank you!

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.
