Most apartments in the old town (Gothic quarter) are on narrow streets where the light and views are limited. However Beates is a fantastic street with only pedestrian access meaning it is completely silent but still in the center of town (no noisy motos driving past). Right next door to a museum and 5 minute walk to the heart of el Born or Placa Catalyuna.
Watch out for streets that have scooter access as they are really loud and drive like idiots.
The apartment is on the 3rd floor (sorry no lift).
The apartment is directly between 2 metro stations: L4 - Urquinona and L1 - Jaume I.
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 after 16:00 and check out before 10:00 to allow plenty of time for the flat to be professionally cleaned.
This will be your home not a hotel, make yourselves at home :-) ¡Mi casa es tu casa!
Also please respect the neighbours and keep noise down to a minimum.
Barcelona has some funny rules about subletting so just say you are friends of mine if asked, thanks :-)
Just a couple of obvious things:
- Please no pets & no smoking in the house! (€250 fine)
- 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!
Damien's Colleague came and meet us right on time. Showed us around the place and gave us some tips on stuff to do. They were very nice and professional.
Nous avons passe un super sejour chez Damien. C est un hote tres a l ecoute, prevenant et reactif, toujours de bon conseil. Accueil chaleureux par son assistante.
L appartement est idealement situe, nous avons tout visite a pieds: meme le park Guell (les escaliers sont un peu raides apres une grosse journee de marche). La sdb est vraiment sympa avec une bonne pression. L appart est charmant et les pieces a vivre spacieuses.
Le point negatif: les voisins sont bruyants et il y a pas mal de bruit la nuit, prevoir des boules Quies. L appart est un peu frais aussi.
Bref, si nous revenions a Barcelone, on retiendrait cette adresse sans hesiter.
I felt very welcome and enjoyed my stay at Damien's apt in Barcelona. The location was extremely convenient, near all the major neighborhoods. I also appreciated the quaintness of the apartment, which offered a quieter environment compared to the major streets nearby.
My mother and I had a wonderful stay at the apartment. The location was the best part of staying here. It's at the center of it all. Walkable distance to the Mercat Santa Caterina, Plaça de Catalunya, Catedral, la Rambla, the Arc de Triomf, Parc de la Ciutadella and the beach! If you're not much of a walker the metro stops to the red and yellow lines are also very close. The kitchen supplies weren't as clean so we couldn't take full advantage of the kitchen, but the bathroom was very clean. Our only problem with the apartment was how cold it got at night. We were visiting in the beginning of April and the nights were still chilly. There were no electric heaters so we were walking around wrapped in blankets. If we had visited at a warmer time, we would've left the beautiful windows open all day!! For those thinking that the place is pricey, you can say that you're paying for the location. Cannot emphasize enough how convenient the location is.
Damien wasn't around to great us but we still had a warm welcome from someone else who met us outside the apartment .
The flat was clean and nice , with towels etc at the ready. The street is quiet at night so you will get some decent sleep. We were not really in the flat much but it was quite dark and bare. Also if you struggle with steps it has quiet allot of steps to get to the flat.
But all in all I had a great birthday the location is great . Recommend you get the Barcelona book CITIX60 loads of places to eat /drink (some of which are near by )
Damien and his team were very accommodating and responsive! This was a dream come true given I didn't reach out regarding booking until a few hours before I was hoping to arrive. After an initial mishap with the original unit I was offered several options to choose from in different neighborhoods of the city. The entire time Maria, one of Damien's assistants, did all that she could to ensure our vacationing was impacted as little as possible by the change of venue. Unexpectedly, Damien also altered our reservation and gave us a discount for the inconvenience. Overall, very professional staff and Damien has many options to choose from to fit your taste and budget. It's the feel of staying in a private home with the service of a more traditional hotel visit.
Thanks for the bottle of cava and we'll definitely look your way the next time we're in Barcelona! Oh, and Damien also has a pretty cool operation going with the mini-cars you find in Hawaii and other locations for sightseeing and/or joyriding through the city. Definitely a fun way to make a run down to Barcaloneta on a sunny day! :)

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.
