HOW TO GET HERE:
If you plan on arriving by car, please let us know so that we can help organise parking. The address is "Carrer Dos de Maig" situated between Carrer Mallorca and Carrer Valencia.
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), hop off on Plaza Universitat and take Metro L2 direction Badalona, get off at Encants.
- Or the train; Line R2 arrives at the El Clot-Aragò train station where you have the option of taking the metro L2 (towards Parallell (1 stop) to Encants or walk.
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. If necessary we can usually help with storing your bags, but need some time to arrange it. If you have a weird flight time let me know and we can always 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). Smoking is of course fine on the covered balcony and on the roof terrace.
- 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. Neighbours have recently decided that the second door should be locked with key, please do so.
- Be very careful of pickpockets on the streets of Barcelona!
Nach dem freundlichen Empfang von Karolina, der Schlüsselübergabe und den zusätzlichen Insider Restaurant Tipps haben wir uns die Wohnung angeschaut. Die Küche ist sehr gut ausgerüstet..Teller Messer Gabeln Gläser Gewürze Kaffee Tee etc. empfehle trotzdem die Sachen nochmal in die Spülmaschine (Tabs vorhanden) zu tun. Im Kühlschrank sind eine Sektflasche, Eiswürfel und Kühlakkus die sich hervorragend für gekühltes Bier am Strand eignen. Die Wohnung entsprach im großen und ganzen den Bildern wie im Internet wobei der Grillbereich auf der Terrasse schon ziemlich alt und abgenutzt war. Der Terrassenboden war nicht richtig sauber und ein Stuhl war kaputt..die Betten auf den Bildern sehen etwas größer aus , dennoch genügend.
Dass Bad ist modern wobei eine Dusche davon etwas klein ist und der Duschkopf für den Körper undicht war.
Nachdem wir leider erst gegen Ende unseres Aufenthaltes dem Vermieter die Mängel berichteten zeigte sich dieser sehr Verständnissvoll und bedauerte es dass wir es Ihm nicht früher mitgeteilt hatten weil er sonst die Mängel gleich Repariert bzw gereinigt hätte.
Allgemein gestaltete sich der Kontakt mit dem Vermieter unkompliziert und schnell was auf uns zusätzlich einen Vertrauenswürdigen Eindruck hinterließ.
Die Lage war gut weil sich um die Ecke ein großer Supermarkt befand und die U Bahn Haltestelle nur 3 min zu Fuß entfernt ist.
Fazit : Diese Wohnung ist absolut bewohnbar und den Spanischen Verhältnissen gerecht !
The place was as advertised, in a good location, close to the metro and groceries. Checking in was a little more complicated than anticipated and the place took longer than we hoped to clean so plan accordingly and ensure you request a couple of hours earlier than when you truly plan to arrive. Damien did help us out in the interim but it was difficult to deal with the change in out schedule and we didn't get a walkthrough due to the adjustments.
Damien has a whole team available to help which can be good but it also makes it hard to know who is available at any point to solve any particular problem. It would be much better to have just one contact number that someone was responsive on immediately.
Check in time is early afternoon. Your arrival time was 9am and we did our best to make it as smooth as possible, storing your luggage, providing breakfast and also paying the taxi to deliver your bags to the apartment. We made the most to have the apartment ready as soon possible, but apparently it wasn´t enough... My team was eager to assist you and called you several times, but both your portable numbers were not available making it hard to communicate.
Nice, central, clean & spacious! Loved the air conditioning and balcony! We had a fantastic time.
We loved the apartment. Everything as described. We even found a bottle of champagne as a welcome gest. Will stay here next time I visit Barcelona.
Great apartment in perfect location. Short cab to the beach and a 10 minute walk from Razzmatazz. Roof terrace made the holiday complete and all the rooms were clean and spacious. Carolina and Damien even agreed to an early check in and late check out. Only issue was the air-conditioning making a noise every hour or so but more than bearable for the quality of apartment. Will definitely be staying here again!
Apartment location was very non-touristy and close to metro, had great air conditioning, was spacious, relatively comfortable beds, access to washing machine, however, it evidenced some wear and tear (e.g., some furniture was worn through).
Damien and his team is very professional and we had an absolutely positive experience with them. They welcomed us with a bottle of Cava which was a nice surprise.
The apartment was spacious, very nice and clean and very well equipped. The location was also great. I can recommend this place to anyone.

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.
