Other Things to Note
You'll have the place entirely to yourself so make yourself at home!
I hope you will enjoy the apartment and treat my home like your home.
Please no smoking inside (on the patio is OK) and no pets (€250 penalty applies).
Please also no parties so you don't disturb the neighbours.
P.S. Barcelona has some funny rules about subletting room, if asked by the neighbors please just tell them that you are a friend of mine, thanks :-)
Easy access neighbourhood. Host was communicative in making sure we were welcomed.
Lovely apartment in perfect location. Home away from home, and extremely responsive and helpful hosts before and during stay. Damien and Karolina great. Outstanding all round.
This space is absolutely amazing and even better than the photos suggest. Perfect location for sightseeing Barcelona with a lot of main attractions within a few blocks. The apt is cool, ground floor, air conditioned and decorated in such a quirky fashion I fell in love with it straight away. I even came back to stay here again only a week later!
We were greeted by Karolina who is charming and very welcoming. She gave us a great first impression of what to expect from Spanish hospitality. Damien was easy to contact through the app and Karolina was on call if we needed anything at all.
The only issue here is parking. Expect to pay upwards of 26€ per day extra to park close by.
Other than that this is one of the coolest places I've ever stayed!
We were just two people staying at the Damien's place but it was perfect, quite big and located perfectly to explore Barcelona, if it's your first time visiting. Communication wen't really well so there was no trouble at all, we even got some welcome drinks on arrival. I can only recommend Damien's apartment.
Appartement situé dans un quartier très sympa.
J'attire l'attention sur le fait qu'il n'y est pas de fenêtre et il est donc assez sombre.
Pour 2 jours sans enfants, c'est pas dérangeant.
A notre arrivée, une bouteille de champagne nous attendait ainsi que des dosettes Nespresso.
Sinon appartement très bien équipé, il y tout : les draps, les serviettes, internet... BIEN
The apartment is just fantastic, and in a brilliant spot easy walking distance to the metro and a number of nice sights and tourist areas. I would definitely stay here again if I was visiting Barcelona (I do regularly), and recommend you do too! Nice touch to make sure we had drinks in the fridge on arrival. I can only be complimentary about this host and property. Also, why are people saying this apartment is hard to find? If you look at the map, and take a look at how the front looks, it is super easy.

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.
