Just come back from Barcelona and stayed in these apartments, well you couldn't ask for a better place to stay.On arrival friendly staff, apartment had fantastic view of the cathedral, the apartment was spotless beds comfortable and everything you needed. We was recommended to a tapas place to eat which was great food and not over priced, supermarket 2 min walk the bus stop for bus tour which I recommend you do was 5 min walk round corner. Nothing more to say just FANTASTIC !!!!

It is a modern apartment and has all the mod cons u could ask for but it is not in the center of town and it is 30 mins away via walking and 10 euro cab fare

The beds are shocking so uncomfortable I asked for a double and we get two singles in squashed together what the hell is that with two single donnas.
Not impressed the bed was so uncomfortable

If u r going to see Barcelona don't bother with this place major disappointment

The amount of noise at night was terrible it was like someone was moving furniture

Dear Brigette,

thank you very much for your review.

For us, all kind of reviews of our high valued guests are very important and taken into deep consideration.

Regarding the location of the apartment, it is clearly shown on the booking portals where we are located and which transportation is nearby the apartment.

About the beds, unfortunately we did not receive any request to arrange this for you. If we would have known about this prior to your arrival we could have found a solution. Some of the apartments offer a double bed and some apartments have two single beds joined together. We offer this for guests who prefer to sleep in seperate beds.

About the comfort of the beds and the noise in the night, this is new to us, all our guests so far did not have any difficulties.

Once again thank you for your time to write us a review.

We kindly ask you to contact us if you return to Barcelona and we will do all our best to fulfill your needs.

With best regards,

The Sensation Apartments Team

My seven friends and I rented one of the four bedroom apartments for 4 days, while we were waiting for our Mediterranean cruise to depart from Barcelona. We absolutely loved it!!! The staff was friendly, knowledgeable, helpful and very much minded their own business. The place was impeccable and what you see in the pictures is exactly what you get, no gimmicks. The place is stylish, clean, modern and minimalistic. This place was amazing, quiet, conveniently located near the Metro, one block away from the Sagrada Familia (with excellent views of it), it is a 15 minute train ride from The Ramblas. There is a Colombian bakery a couple of doors down, where they had awesome, strong coffee. A mini market where you can get all the essentials for a great dinner, they even had wine! We were all very pleased with this place and would definitely stay here again.

I decided to book an apartment rather than a hotel to give us more space during our holiday to Barcelona and couldn't have picked a better location! The apartments are just a stone's throw from the Sagrada Familia which is also a stop on the Barcelona Metro which made it very easy to get to from the Airport using the train and metro. It was also very convenient for exploring the rest of Barcelona via the metro.

The apartment itself was modern, spacious and very well appointed with everything you would need for your stay. Everything was spotlessly clean, the shower was good and the beds were very comfortable. The air conditioning was also very effective which was extremely welcome given the warm August temperatures.

The reception staff were extremely pleasant and very helpful. They booked tickets online for the Sagrada Familia for us which saved having to wait in a 2 hour queue! They also have a selection of DVDs available to borrow, including kids titles, which was useful given that the TV in the apartment only had the usual range of English news channels available. There is a small 'pool' on the roof terrace which isn't really suitable for swimming in but is great to cool off in after a day's sightseeing.

There are several supermarkets within short walking distance and the local area also has lots of well priced, decent restaurants. The area itself is mainly residential but is clean, quiet and felt very safe so is ideal for families.

Great stay just a few blocks from Sagrada Familia. Lots of places to shop and eat nearby. Only short walk to metro. Friendly reception who will help to book tickets for you. The pool is tiny and shallow, not to swim in. But gorgeous views from pool terrace to Sagrada Familia. We did hardly use the tiny balcony or open windows as the road below was very busy/ noisy. But great place to stay if looking for central and without a car.

The apartment was stylish, clean and of good quality. We had a 2 bedroom apartment for the 4 of us,with ample space and facilities (two toilets was a plus). It was peaceful atmosphere even though the hotel is situated very close to shops, restaurants, metro station and the Sagrada Familia temple( good view from our lounge). The rooftop terrace and pool were an added bonus.The staff were very friendly and most helpful. Overall we had a pleasant stay and would recommend this hotel for an enjoyable stay in Barcelona.
