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.
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 - €200 fine applies!
- 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!
As we were very spontaneous with this trip, we were happy to get confirmation immediately as we requested this booking. So perfect for the last minute reservation. The check in - check out procedures were very easy. Also after check out we left our baggage with concierge downstairs and had a nice last walk in the town. The flat is spacious and there was everything we needed. A bit a lack of a personal touch in the interiors, as it is a professional holiday apartment, not someones house. But it is pretty much visible on the pictures, so we knew what it is beforehand. What we didn't like was stains of rust on the bathtub - we couldn't bath our little son there, though we booked this apartment partly because of the bathtub. The terrace upstairs is great, we had there breakfasts with a nice view on neighbourhood. And he neighbourhood is perfect - just next doors is an old roofed market, where we bought fresh vegs and fruit every morning. The flat is centrally located, pretty everything in a walking distance.
Отличная квартира в центре города в 5 минутах от Пасео де Грассия и в 10 мин от Саграда Фамилия. Весь квартирный блок апартаментов находится под управлением одной компании, которая, на постоянной основе имеет там своего представителя, что значительно облегчает взаимодействие (получение ключей, другие текущие вопросы). В соимость аренды входит завтрак.
В целом квартира очень чистенькая с новой мебелью и скоростным интернетом. Единственный недостаток квартиры это ванная комната. В ванной в середине корыто (bath tab) ржавчина!
Very easy to check in, quiet area, great for using as a base to explore barcelona. $30 cab ride to/from the airport. We used the Metro to get down to all the beach, Las Ramblas & Montjuic Castle ( Highly recommend). We were glad to have a safe place to come and go throughout our stay & we used the roofdeck every night!
Damien and Karolina were fantastic! Very smooth check in process and any problems (which were pretty much non-existent) were taken care of immediately. The flat itself was perfect. Very clean, amazing location and that rooftop was wonderful! I would definitely stay here again next time I come to Barcelona and would highly recommend to anyone else. Overall - fantastic experience... thank you Damien and Team!
First of all Damien and his team are really great. They did an amazing job and our stay at the picasso suites where absolutely perfect. That is the way service orientations looks like!
the picasso suites are very nice apartments with all you need - clean and modern, better than any hotel. we would recommend these apartments to everyone.
From our first moment of contact with Damien and Karolina at Picasso Suites 5.3, we had the most professional and attentive service. This suite is perfectly clean with tasteful and modern decor. Every day we congratulated ourselves (haha) on (blindly) choosing a place that was as well situated and well maintained.
For us, the Eixample neighborhood is such a relief from the more touristy Gothic and Ramblas areas and a great place to experience how Barcelonans go about their days. It's like the elbow in Barcelona -- you can walk or bike in every direction and to every neighborhood in the city, including just a 10 minute walk to La Sagrada Familia, and experience some of the best architecture, shopping and Barcelona lifestyle just by stepping out the front door. Also, some excellent tapas to be had in that neighborhood, where locals are served huge portions of very authentic dishes. We also loved the daily breakfast in the cafe each morning. where Laura made us con leches and the typical Spanish breakfast sandwich. We loved the jamon and cheese one best.
The Suite and host:
A couple of things we especially loved about the Picasso Suite 5.3 were the access to the roof top deck and the very genuine helpfulness of Karolina. She planned a day trip up the Costa Brava for us that was one of our most memorable days and gave us great recommendations for restaurants in less-travelled neighborhoods like El Raval near the university. When we had difficulty understanding how to pick up our online ticket for La Sagrada, in about two seconds she was walking me over to the ticket broker. We also found letting Karolina book our taxi to and from the airport provided reasonably-priced, smooth transitions at the beginning and end of our trip.
All in all, a really great experience in a really great location with a really great host. My only suggestion for light sleepers is to bring your earplugs, because Barcelona is noisy everywhere, and enjoy a very good bed and a very nice suite at Picasso 5.3. Other suggestions include getting a bike to explore the huge bike network around Barcelona. We used a company called Green Bikes. The bikes were great 3-speed cruisers, so we were able to go all the way up to Park Geuil and travel for kilometres along the amazing beach boardwalk. Green Bikes was totally relaxed and the employees all speak English very well. Like everyone else, we just parked the bikes on the street at night, using the locks provided. The city-wide bike share program seems to be more geared toward locals. Green Bike was 10 euros a day.
Muy buena ubicación, mercado y supermercado al costado el departamento limpio, todo nuevo, impecable.
Tiene una terraza muy agradable en la azotea.
Sin dudas recomendable

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.
