As part of my transition to retirement, we booked Picasso Suites for the month of July and invited family and friends. They are centrally located and within walking distance of most popular attractions - Sagrada Familia, Parque Guell, the Beach, museums and just blocks away from Passieg de Gracia. The neighborhood is lovely with lots of sidewalk cafes, shops and even a super market. We shopped in the morning and hosted great dinners in the evening on the terrace. Picture yourself having dinner on a cool starlit night with a panoramic view of Sagrada Familia, Mt. Tibidabo and the many neighborhood plazas and other attractions. Most highly we recommend the restaurant 9 on the first floor. Excellent food and service. Most importantly, we friended and loved the staff - Karolina and Inyaki. They were so helpful and treated us royally. Even when we experienced a minor emergency in the early morning, they were more than willing to lend a hand. Train stations and are close by and can access most destinations outside of the city. They were so responsive to our email inquiries putting us at ease before we arrived. Most definitely we plan to go back and friends of our have already booked for the summer of 2017. 5 stars, highly recommended.
The rooms being a little small and small for luggage is the only drawback to this apartment. The folks were available to us and helped make our week fantastic. They even give a small continental breakfast daily in the cafe around the corner which is lovely and makes one feel a little like a local. The location and hospitality made the experience very memorable and we would recommend it.
We used the Picasso Suites to entertain clients at the Spanish Grand Prix - there were 12 guests in total and we used 4 of the apartments. The apartments were exceptionally clean, tidy and spacious, and the roof terrace gave wonderful views over the City. The service we received from Karolina was absolutely top notch - she couldn't be more helpful and dealt with my various requests for birthday cakes, fridge supplies, and breakfast queries quickly and so efficiently! Nothing was too much trouble. I would recommend these apartments to anyone who is looking for a great space in the centre of the City - you are guaranteed a warm welcome, and super efficient staff.
