Great location and ideal for a familyPosted Feb 25, 2014
Pros: Location and facilities.
Cons: Less creaky sofa bed!
Location: Sagrada Familia on your doorstep.
We are a family of five and the apartment was ideal for us. The apartment was spotlessly clean and the kitchen well stocked with utensils and crockery. The location is very convenient with the Sagrada Familia just around the corner; metro station and hop on-hop off tourist bus stop a couple of minutes walk away; restaurants and supermarket pretty much on the doorstep. The staff were very helpful and friendly. The only slight negative I can come up with was that the sofa bed was a bit creaky!

A Few Days in BarcelonaPosted Feb 23, 2014
Pros: The location was key for us and it didn't disappoint with Metro and Supermarkets close by. The rooms were modern and clean.
Cons: We never found the Juicer. Revise the recommended places to eat.
Location: The Apartment is situated on the block next to the Sagrada Familia, (hence the name) where you have easy access to the Metro, and places to eat.
This was the first time we tried an apartment, having previously gone on city breaks to hotels, and the experience was very positive. The Apartment itself was clean modern and well served by its location to shops and the metro. If you are staying a few days I highly recommend the official 3-5 day Metro card that covers busses and trams too. Staff were friendly and are on hand from about 9-1; we did ask a lot of questions being our first time in Barcelona. The only issues we had were with not knowing our way around the city which was not helped by the short time we were there, (there is a lot to do/see). We were not aware of some of the facilities/restaurants nearby until the last day and a more useful map of the local area would have been a boon.

Very nice apartment.Posted Feb 22, 2014
The apartment is very nice. Look much more good in reality than the website picture. The only glitch is the wifi doesn't work in the living area you need to go to the bedroom to get a good internet access. One more the taxi driver that took us to the airport charge us an extortionate fee of 51.50 euro. I think the reception guy who called the is not aware about what the driver is doing. Other wise the apartment is perfect.

Great place to stay!Posted Feb 22, 2014
Pros: Very roomy for a family. Hotel staff very helpful and very courteous.
Cons: Hotel staff with increased hours.
Location: Sagrada Familla around the corner. Plenty of restaurants nearby. Markets close by. Metro one block away.
Very comfortable apartment especially for a family. We stayed in a beautiful 3 bedroom apartment with a full kitchen and 2 full baths. Kids loved it! Very nice area. Not in center of city but still good area just around the corner from Sagrada Familla. Metro around the corner. Plenty of markets and restaurants. Hotel staff very helpful.

Great location, friendly staff & comfortablePosted Feb 11, 2014
Pros: Good location Comfortable & convenient with plenty of room.
Cons: If you are looking for a full service hotel with all the amenities, this is not the place for you.
Our family stayed here for a long weekend in Barcelona. The location is very convenient. The staff is very friendly and helpful. Apartment is nice and comfortable. Was nice to have a kitchen for late night snacks or some of the meals.

Perfect apartment, great location!Posted Jan 1, 2014
Pros: It's a well-equipped and maintained apartment which gives so much more flexibility compared to a hotel room (in particular when travelling with kids)
Cons: 'cherries on the cake': coat rack,coaster(s) and oven mitts(great oven;but how do you get a pan out of the oven without burning your hands or table?!)
Location: For Sagrada Familia buy your tickets on-line (saves you the huge lines). Metro system's great: buy a 'tarjeta' instead of travel card, as it's cheaper
Less than a 2 minutes walk away from the Sagrada Familia and its metro station you'll find this pretty (new) apartment complex. You'll have to ring a door bell (right lower corner) to enter the building. At the end of a narrow corridor you'll find the reception desk with very efficient, nice employees. The 2 bedroom apartment we had on the second floor had a great balcony facing the Sagrada Familia (probably it's even better at higher floors). Master bedroom is relatively big, second bedroom's small but excellent for kids. Both bedrooms have sufficient closet space. The interior is modern and well maintained. Dining table seats 6 persons and kitchen has china and cutlery for six. A large fridge, microwave, sufficient pots and frying pans, ceramic hob and oven guarantee you great meals. Even a juicer and toaster are available. Dishcloth and dishwasher tablets are also taken care off. Within the close surroundings (1 minute walk!) of the apartment building you'll find a supermarket and other excellent shops. The wireless internet functioned perfectly during our stay. What more does one need to enjoy this beautiful city?!?

Wonderful Place to Stay!!Posted Nov 14, 2013 on Hotels.com
We had a great time at Sensation Sagrada Familia. It was like staying in an apartment rather than a hotel! Wonderful views!! It was a little hard to find when we got off the subway system just because we were new to the area. Once we found it, it was so close to anything we needed. If something wasn't near our hotel, there were 2 subway stops near by that got us to our destination with ease. The hotel staff was very nice and helped with anything we needed. Everything was clean and they had a lot of your essentials for the kitchen and bathroom already there for you! I only found 2 cons to this place - 1. The beds were a little hard for my liking. 2. We had trouble connecting to the wireless in some spots of our 'apartment'.

Great place to stay with familyPosted Nov 13, 2013
This is a great apartment hotel and perfect place to stay since one has a nice kitchen included, supermarkets are close by and don't forget you are next to one of the main attractions in Barcelona. The staff is super friendly as well. Loved it. Thanks.
