Due to flight delay, arrived after 10 pm which cost an additional 30 Euros (which we already knew as it was in the T&Cs). Excellent reception service at all times. Clean apartment with wonderful view of Sagrada Familia. Reasonably equipped. Welcome pack consisted of 1 bottle of red wine and 1 pack of coffee capsules for the Nesspresso machine. (Milk, sugar and bread would have been nice.) Excellent speedy Wifi.
Pool was like a small paddling pool, set into the floor - good for cooling off aching feet after all that walking. Some sun beds and a small seating area also available on the roof.
The apartment was within a few minutes walk of the church and the metro. Very easy to get to all interesting sights.
Some good restaurants around but avoid La Fromagerie. Terrible food, extortionate price - their idea of a main course is a cheese fondue pot with a bowl of bread pieces. - and the other main meal of chicken/rice dish was inedible. Not sure that the place actually had a kitchen!
Also, on no account book a taxi from Reception unless you agree the price first. The taxi driver who took us to the airport (leaving at 8:30 am) charged us 45 Euros - a third more than it cost travelling from the airport after 11 pm! He took us the long way round.
Would recommend Barcelona Segway Glides. Great way to kick off your sightseeing - great fun.
Would return to Sensation Sagrada Familia apartments without hesitation.
