We stayed in the 2 room apartment on 4th floor - lovely, just like the pictures on the website. Check-in was easier than expected given that it was a different location but the lady spoke good English and was very helpful, pointed out places to eat as she walked us over to the apartment. Lots of small grocery shops nearby and a great boulangerie round the back of the block. A short walk to the Sagrada Familia with a small park (swings for kids), metro stop and lots of restaurants round the other side of the cathedral (go past MacDonalds, Subway, KFC...). Food is a bit cheaper than UK. Metro is good clean and fast - we never had to wait more than 3 minutes. An A-10 ticket costs 9.8Euros and gives you 10 metro rides. From Sagrada Familia take line 2 a few stops to Passeig de Gracie, then a short walk to Catalunya and the Ramblas or line 5 to Collblanc for Camp Nou stadium, definitely worth a visit though the must-have souvenirs are not cheap. We had an easy trip back to the airport too, metro to Passeig to Gracie and then walk to Catalunya to catch the Aerobus to the airport (takes about 30 minutes). Just a small grumble about the apartment: we were surprised to be interrupted so often by the staff when we were only there 4 nights. One day we had 4 visits, the maintenance man rang the bell but the cleaning lady just walked in. We saw her often and it was a bit intrusive. But overall a great stay, great choice of apartment, we'd choose it again.
