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 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.

  • Great apartment. Clean, modern, comfortable. Great neighborhood. We walked to all major sites and attractions. Lots of good restaurants nearby.

    Damien and his team were very attentive and helpful.

    Highly recommend.

  • Damien, Karolina and Siobhan were great. The breakfast downstairs was a lovely touch. The apartment is in a wonderful location and very comfortable. This was a luxurious indulgence for us and a very special treat. Siobhan went beyond her job to find concert tickets for us through her own friends then even dropped them at the apartment!
    Two of the 3 bedrooms are quite noisy, facing a busy street. This was not a problem for us but may be for some others. The Wifi was not usually available in the bedroom but was stronger in the living room. When it stopped working altogether Karolina reset the router and fixed the problem quickly.

  • Nice apartment in a very good location. Great market next door and the little breakfast restaurant is a plus as well. Karoline was very helpful. Very clean and well equipped, also liked the rooftop terrace. There is a view of the Sagrada Familia up there. Would stay there again.

  • Nous avons eu un séjour tout à fait confortable dans l'appartement Picasso suite. Il est très bien situé dans un quartier commerçant et agréable d'où nous avons pu visiter Barcelone à pied ou en métro. Le premier jour, un petit problème d'eau chaude mais qui a été réglé dans le quart d'heure. Très bonne adresse.

  • This is a really great appartment! The location was very convenient, walking distance from Sagrada Famillia and even Gracia neighborhood. Also several subway stations at just a few minutes away. But these practicalities don't mean anything in comparison to the cleanliness and comfort of the appartment. Damien and his team are great communicators so all information you need is within hand via email correspondence before and during your stay. We highly recommend this place!

  • Super buena localizacion, piso muy bonito y moderno, limpio y bien equipado! Ademas hay una azotea comun para los vecinos que esta super bien para tomar el sol o para cenar alla al aire libre! Un sitio muy recomendable!

  • Great apartment, perfect location, superb service and simple procedures for keys, check-in and check-out.

    March 2014
  • The service provided by Damien and his team was exceptional. Check-in, check-out and all the logistical arragmenents were effortless. Moreover, Damien was very friendly and helpful. I was a bit disappointed with the quality of the apartment, and the limited comfort of the furnishings. The apartment is in a good location and is very practical. Thus, if you are not looking to spend much time in the apartment, it is a good option.

  • This was a great short stay. The apartment is ideally suited for a family visiting Barcelona. We had three children (early teens) with us and the accomodation was absolutely perfect - plenty of space. Great design. Very responsive hosts.

    February 2014
  • Damian and Karolina were great hosts. They quickly rectified some minor problems with the apartment and organized extras like babysitting quickly and efficiently.
    The location is right by a great and old produce market and walking distance from Sagrada Familia and the main shopping street. The apartment was clean and as advertised.

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.
