For a smooth check-in process we would like to ask you to contact us in a timely way before you actually go to the apartment on the day of your arrival.
At the apartment there is no reception desk and any of the accommodation managers will need some travel time (about 45 minutes) from the location where our office is located to arrive at the address of the apartment.
By contacting us before we hope to be able to reduce your waiting time at the apartment to a minimum.
Special request: We would kindly ask you to please let us know your arrival details like for example your flight details, or if you plan to come to Barcelona by other means of transport, explain us please how and at what time you expect to arrive.
Thank you very much in advance.
We also would like to ask your attention for the following.
In compliance with current legislation, every guest that is staying in a hotel or an apartment is required to fill in the guests registry and we would like to ask for your kind collaboration. It consists of scanning or taking a picture of your identity card or passport when you check-in. In our experience, this is the quickest and most convenient way for all involved. Please bear in mind we will ask to do so for every member of your travel party. Thank you so much !
To be complete: towels and bed clothes are being provided and are included in the price as well as the final cleaning of the apartment, after your stay.
Any payment due upon your arrival can be settled by paying in cash or by credit card.
A little advice
There have been cases of people being the victim of pickpocketing so please take good care of your belongings.
Most of the victims are people that come to visit the city and that travel with their suitcases, what makes them easily recognized as people from out of town.
Please take special care while changing buses/ trains or traveling in the metro. Do not let anyone distract you.
It is one of the less nicer things of the city of Barcelona but there is still a lot to enjoy.
To get rid of your garbage there are some big grey containers placed on the street in the vicinity of the apartment. These are meant for your garbage in general. The city welcomes your contribution to the environment. That’s why there is also the possibility to separate your garbage. Accross the street, coming out of the building to your right, you will three deposits of different colours. They are meant for:
The blue container: paper, like newspapers, magazines, carton
The yellow container: plastic and metals like plastic bottles, soda cans etc
The green container: glass
The brown container: bio waste
Unfortunately we do no have any possibilities to store your luggage after the checkout time of 11:00 am.
At times there is some margin to leave the luggage inside the apartment until you have to leave to travel to the bus or train station or airport. Please consult your check-in manager upon arrival.
We recommend to store luggage in a place in the very city centre, at only 150 Metres from Plaza Catalunya and the Aerobús stop.

By Taxi (recommended)
The airport has taxi stands at all terminals.
The price of the trip to the apartment depends on the time of the day you are traveling, your luggage and the required travel time it takes from the airport to the apartment but you can expect that a trip costs around 35 Euros.
If you plan to buy a ' Hola Barcelona' travelling card, (please find here a link , all public transport included) then you could consider taking the metro L9.
Change at station 'Collblanc' to the blue line L5 and get out at ' Sant Pau/Dos de Maig' . Travelling time is about 1 hour.
(Quite a good option)
By Train and underground line 5
To reach the station from Terminal 2, head for the pedestrian bridge that begins at the southern side of Terminal 2, Building B. Terminal 1 is the new terminal of the airport and so far there is no direct connection with the train system. There is however a shuttle bus service between terminals 1 and 2.
You better not take a taxi to travel from Terminal 1 to Terminal 2 because the fare is around (20 euros) and is disproportional with the time you try to save.
If your flight arrives at Terminal 1, we suggest that you directly take the Airportbus from here (line A1) to travel into town so that you save yourself a lot of time.
The railway line R2 or C2, runs about every half hour from the airport.
By train you travel to the railway station ‘BARCELONA SANTS’. The journey takes about 35 minutes and you can even travel with a metro ticket (or one of those cards for several days, 10 travel card). You can buy the tickets for the subway at the ticket selling machines at the station. Get out of the train at the station BARCELONA SANTS. From here, take the metro, the blue line #5. Travel in the direction of VALL D´HEBRON. Get off at the metro at the station SANT PAU / DOS DE MAIG. Once on the street, the building where the apartment is situated in, is about 2 minutes by foot.
By Airport Bus and Underground
At the airport, take the airport bus. There are two buslines from the airport with a direct connection to the city. On both lines, big blue buses are being used. Line A1 begins its route from the new Terminal 1 and from Terminal 2 line A2 starts at building A and also stops at the building B and C.
Tickets for the trip to the city can be purchased at the ticket selling machines at the bus stop.
This is the website of the Aerobus.
The buses run every 10 minutes throughout the day and in about 45 minutes they bring you to the last stop, Plaça Catalunya, in the heart of the city.
Once arrived on Plaça Catalunya, from the bus stop you go in a southerly direction (with the department store ‘El Corte Inglés’ in your back), towards the other side of the square. Here you can take the underground, the green line, number3. Travel from here in the direction of TRINITAT NOVA. Get off at the stop DIAGONAL, where you change to the blue line. Travel in the direction of VALL D´HEBRON. Get off at the metro at the station SANT PAU / DOS DE MAIG. Once on the street, the building where the apartment is situated in, is about 2 minutes by foot.
No smoking is allowed in any apartment or in the common areas (elevator, stairway, building entrance) inside the building.
