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!
- 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 unit is in a perfectly picturesque and central location. Adjacent to a lovely market and walking distance to most major sights in Barcelona. The apartment itself is quite utilitarian and meets only basic needs. Damien was a highly communicative and gracious host.
The location was very nice. Everything was very well organized. Damien sent me very detailed instructions about every step.
Our very first Airbnb experience and the three of us were a little nervous and not at all sure what to expect! Turned out excellent. The apartment was spacious, clean and well furnished with fresh sheets and towels, a great first impression. We were happy to find ourselves walking distance to Passeig de Gracia, placa Catalunya, La Rambla, shops and restaurants. It was easy to get cabs everywhere else and we found Barcelona cabbies friendly and happy to speak English. Checking in was a little tricky because all that electronic code punching did not work as smoothly as you'd think, so thank goodness the super friendly doormen were there to help. Karolina and Maria were pleasant and helpful when on duty, and the driver they called for our airport runs, Andy, was friendly and efficient. We stayed twice in the same apartment, breaking our visit with a trip to Madrid. We returned to find everything just as good as the first time, except that the previous occupant was a smoker and the unpleasant smoke smell stayed day and night. This despite it being a no-smoking property with a sign in the door saying there is a 250-euro fine for smoking. Be aware that this is very central, so there is traffic noise from the street below. Overall, this is a great find in a choice spot and everything you could ask for in holiday accommodation. I will be happy to return any time. A lovely touch: you get free coffee and a croissant or sandwich for breakfast at the Bracafe next door. It's a super neighbourhood cafe, with friendly staff who communicated warmth so easily despite the language barrier. Started our days on the right note every time!
The apartment is in a great location situated next to the beautiful flower market. All rooms were clean, the living room nicely kitted out, a large living space. The roof top terrace is fantastic, we had beautiful weather and made the most of it. The apartment is perfectly described as in the advert. It's close by copious amounts of cafes, restaurants and is probably about a 20-30 min walk to the centre which is nice.
We will definitely be coming back to Barcelona.
Lovely apartment - well equipped, quiet and exactly as described. Bravo. The flexibility around check-in was extremely welcome.
Everything was perfect, the location, the service, the transportation and the cleanliness but the house seems smaller than it is in the photos. For 8 people it becomes a quite packed place.
Thanks for your assistance and understanding - much appreciated

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.
