Reviewed 16 April 2014

Beautiful fully equipped apartment about a block from both the basilica Sagrada Familia and the associated subway stop. The balcony and living room had a view of the church towers, and there was a table on the balcony perfect for a sunny breakfast. The entire apartment was spotless and in essentially new condition, with comfortable beds. The kitchen was well equipped. Security was good, with key required to open outer door. There are plenty of services nearby, including several groceries, a pharmacy, and a number of restaurants all within 2 blocks. The staff was professional and helpful, although we did experience a few mixups with reservations they made for us, and some of their advice, so double check things with them to make sure everything is clear. Keep in mind that these are apartments, not a hotel, so there is no daily maid service, in-house restaurant, etc.

We booked into the Sensation Sagrada Familia Apartments today and are extremely disappointed because there is a barking dog next door. We went sightseeing today and returned to our apartment about 4pm and it is now 9.10pm and the dog is still barking constantly.

I asked the Manager about 7pm if he could speak with the neighbour and he said he would.
I again spoke to the girl at reception about the barking dog about 8.45pm and I was told that nothing can be done legally until 10pm. She then told me to close all the doors and windows, and I have but it does not make a difference.

When I questioned that it was unfair that a dog can bark constantly and nothing can be done and I also mentioned that I would have to warn others of this problem she told me I could phone the Police if I wanted.

When visiting Barcelona previously I stayed at another apartment and I only stayed here because it was closer to the Sagrada Familia.

I am extremely disappointed because the check-in staff were extremely helpful and the apartment is excellent and in a great location.

The dog has been barking constantly - no breaks for over 5 hours. I am tired after travelling and sightseeing BUT cannot go to sleep because of the dog.

If I disturbed the guest of the hotel or neighbourhood I am certain that I would be asked to leave.

Think twice about staying at this Apartment Hotel be warned.

Dear former guest,

thank you very much for your review.

We are really sorry for the disturbance of the dog of the neighborhood. In non of our apartments pets are allowed so it was something that we could not influence. Also, this is the first time that we get this complaint, none of our guests have been complaining about a dog yet.

Anyways, we are thankful for you that you mentioned this and we will take noteand try to find a solution to avoid this for the future.

Thanks a lot one more time for choosing Sensation Apartments for your stay in Barcelona!

We arrived as a family on the 6th April , and spent a happy week in a nice comfortable apartment( husband, mum in law and 6 year old son. A great view of Sagrada Familia from the back. Free use of washers and dryers. Helpful reception staff, friendly and approachable. The roof terrace with the plunge pool suited our 6 year old son who enjoyed playing in it.
The apartment was bright and airy, enough equipment to keep you happy and fed over a week. Simple , clean furnishings, an ideal base for a week in an amazing city.
The staff were really helpfully trying to get our airport transfer to pick us up on time today, so we would not miss our flight. A warning to all, don't use aero city transfers. We booked our holiday with Expedia and they are recommended by them. When we arrived on the 6th April they turned up at the airport about 40 minutes late. I should have known when I approached the aero city desk at El Prat Airport and she told me she was stressed due to traffic problems in the city. When we flew back on the 13 th April, they were an hour late and still hadn't arrived. The great staff at Sensation rang twice trying to get someone to pick us up. We had to get a taxi or would have missed our flight. Avoid at all costs !
As for Sensations Apartments -Highly recommended as a base. For our family a great choice, plus the international guests staying there were also really nice!
The recommendation from the staff of the local tapas restaurant is a good one, we had a great meal there. Coming out of the door and turning left there is a takeaway Sushi place, fresh , really nice, give it a try. We also booked a night tour of La Pedrera with a meal, it is a really wonderful way to see a Gaudi property without the crowds. If you are interested in Gaudi, book on line as everywhere is very popular.

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.

Winding down our stay here at Sensation. Real comfortable apartment (here with my wife and daughter), with a full kitchen, and two nice bedrooms. View of the Sagrada from our terrace. Quick two block walk to the metro for our excursions. Free use of the washers and dryers is nice. Also, complementary coffee for the coffee maker (I am the only coffee drinker, so saves those morning jaunts to the local Starbucks). Highly recommend for small families, or if you want something more than the ordinary hotel room. Also would like to echo that the room was very clean and tidy upon arrival. Also, the staff is helpful and knowledgeable. Would definitely stay here again!

We stayed in apartment 401... Modern, lovely decor, everything you need. Comfortable beds, seating and great shower. Very clean! Amazing views of the cathedral from our balcony. Roof terrace with plunge pool and sun loungers was a nice touch. Just round the corner from the metro and plenty of nice tapas bars and restaurants. Couldn't ask for more! Will be returning in the future.

We ended our trip to Spain in this lovely apartment hotel. We had a spectacular view of the Sagrada Familia from our balcony. The other reviews (especially Fred RB11) hit it right on the head, so I won't repeat everything. We were two minutes from the Basilica and most importantly, the extremely efficient subway, which makes the entire city completely accessible and in my view, is the best way to get around the city because traffic is dense. The subway is fast, safe, clean and very logically-organized.

We loved the staff and got great tips about where to go with kids, etc. I would go back in a heart beat.

You will hear the church bells, so again, ear plugs are a good idea for light sleepers.

Couple of tips: there's a great wine store across from the apartment - 75climes - with a very knowledgeable, English-speaking staff member. (ask for Guillermo (spelling)?). We lucked into a wine-tasting one Friday night. They had a great stuck of Spanish wines from a variety of smaller vineyards at all price ranges. There's a couple of excellent and well-priced grocery stores in the area, if you want to stock up. Several are open quite late.


One thing: the king-size bed was just two twins shoved together. I didn't like it, but my husband said that he quite enjoyed it because I couldn't hog his covers. Not a complaint, just an observation -- if you are honeymooning, you might want to ask specific questions regarding the bed arrangements.
