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!
Picasso Suite was fantastic! Just imagine that the apartment is almost same as a great hotel. Additionally, all condition is good and Damien kindly provided a bottle of wine. The location of the place is also amazing. It's really near Sagrada Familia and the heart of Barcelona. A lot of good food stores and restaurants are located around the apartment as well. I can highly recommend it!
My whole experience at the apartment was great from start to finish. The apartment was advertised accurately and was very clean upon entering. The neighborhood is very nice and the cafe that comes with free breakfast with the apartment is delicious and has great service. The beds and pillows were very comfortable and there was tons of closet space in each room. One thing to be aware of is that the wi-fi is not very strong and I often lost my connection, especially in the bedrooms. This wasn't a huge issue since I wasn't in the apartment too much but it would've been nice to be able to use my phone at night in my bedroom. Also note (the apartment advertises this) that there is no A/C in the bedrooms so it can get quite warm at night. We actually asked for a fan and they provided us with one. The front bedroom with the bunk beds doesn't have a curtain (it just has a semi-transparent shade) so it's bright at night and the other front bedroom is a bit loud if you have the window open at night. Other than that, the apartment was great. The roof deck was also very nice and we really enjoyed using it.
The organization was very easy and well set-up. We felt welcome and the apartment was perfect for a group of friends or for a family wishing to discover or enjoy Barcelona! It was very well located, clean, spacious, and the rooftop was a great bonus!
Damien and his team made us feel very welcome. He answered all of my messages promptly. The apartment was as advertised in the photos. It was very well appointed and comfortable. The refrigerator was even stocked with bottled water and cava! A free daily coffee and bocadillo/croissant from the cafe next door was an especially nice and unexpected bonus.
Very friendly and easy booking process. The host was always reachable and responded immediately to questions. We felt welcomed.
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.

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.
