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 not 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!
The place was perfect for us, we worked all week in Barcelona. The apartment was comfortable and close to everything. The door system was also a plus because we didn't need to organise for someone to wait for us.
Das Apartement ist geräumig, modern und elegant eingerichtet. In unserem Fall hatten wir besondere Anforderungen, da mein Bruder im Rollstuhl sitzt. Die Wohnung ist weitestgehend rollstuhlgerecht, auch wenn das Bad nicht einem "behindertengerechten" Bad entspricht. Für uns war alles sehr gut machbar. Die Wohnung liegt in zentraler Lage. Einkaufsmöglichkeiten gibt es ohne Ende. Die Sagrada Familia ist fußläufig gut zu erreichen. Der Transfer vom bzw. zum Flughafen war perfekt, das können wir nur weiterempfehlen. Auch Karolina war jederzeit ansprechbar. Die Wohnung können absolut weiterempfehlen.
Nice apartment, really well-located with nearby access to the supermarket right across the street, bank branches with ATMs, bus lines, metro and a variety of affordable or upscale restaurants. Damien was very helpful and flexible. We had a great time in Barcelona and we highly recommend this apartment.
While everything went smoothly (airport pick-up and drop-off, keycards and breakfast tokens ready, baby cot set up, as requested), the place itself wasn't *quite* the luxury it looked in the pictures. The AC worked well, but the wifi was weak and didn't work in the sitting area. It's not quite as cozy as staying in someone's home, but there also aren't the perks of staying in a hotel, i.e. we took out our own trash, bought our own toilet paper, no linen service (we stayed 5 nights). However, there was enough space for us all (4 adults and 1 toddler), and Damien and Karolina were friendly and responsive. The breakfast is a sandwich or croissant and a coffee or juice. My in-laws visited the restaurant for dinner and enjoyed it. There is a market two doors down from the apartment, which was really fun. Also, there is a supermarket across the street and another just around the corner. Just past the Spar grocery store on the corner is a terrific tapas restaurant (De Tapa Madre) that is open all evening. Being unadapted to the Spanish schedule, this was a godsend! We went 3 nights in a row! The metro lines are also 5-10 minute walking, and nearly all areas of interest were just a few stops from there so we were fine with just a 10-journey, Zone 1, Barcelona travel card. All in all, it was a positive experience and aided us well in our visit.
Nous avons passé cinq jours (à cinq adultes) dans cet appartement, en août 2014. L'appartement est vaste, moderne, sans cachet particulier mais tout à fait confortable et agréable, exactement conforme à la description. Propreté impeccable. Le marché juste en bas de l'immeuble est très pratique pour les besoins quotidiens. Le petit déjeuner inclus (1 café ou thé + 1 croissant ou sandwich) est pratique aussi. L'emplacement est excellent pour découvrir Barcelone. Quartier calme et élégant (le bruit du trafic est moins fort qu'ailleurs mais on est en ville quand même). Il est possible de laisser ses bagages en consigne. Damien et son équipe sont efficaces et aimables. Le prix est assez élevé mais nous ne pouvons pas dire si l'on aurait pu trouver pareil pour moins cher. A recommander
Damien and his team were amazing! Best communication I've experienced yet with an AirBNB property. Place was in a fantastic location with really great shops and restaurants within 3 minutes walking any direction. The apartment itself was nice and well equipped and very clean.
This was my second time at Picasso Suites -
They are very professional, excellent price-to-quality flats, in a good location, next to a fantastic market. This time I chose a three bedroom flat for a group of 3 co-workers to stay in during a business trip.
Everyone had a pleasant private room, for a fraction of the cost of three hotel rooms.

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.
