Barcelona neigborhoods, with small children (apartment)


I'm traveling to Barcelona in october 2013 with my family (including kids aged 2 and 5). We are looking for an apartment to make things easier. We are staying only for four nights, so we want to be near some attractions, and I hope that area itself is an attractive enough so we don't have to always leave somewhere.

Can you suggest me neighborhood?

It's a big plus if theres park or playground near, and also familyfriendly cafes, restaurants etc. I also like pedestrian streets, because if we go without strolllers, those feel safer. Bakeries, supermarkets and small grocery shops would be nice.

We don't need nightlife, but it's ok if the area is busy - not planning to leave the apartment in the evening.

Thanks in advance,
