Where do I start? The location? OK! The location is absolutely spot on (especially if you've been to Barcelona before). The area has a real living city, local feel to it, despite being so close to a major tourist landmark.
The apartment block is very new (and the car park very scary), reception is well covered and staff very polite and helpful. The cleaners were fantastic! A squad of them came in, very polite and blitzed the place to showroom condition in 40 minutes!
The apartments themselves are fantastic! Very spacious, clean, bright, airy and have an up-market executive feel to them. The roof terrace is the jewel in the crown! The back terrace looks over Sagrada Familia and the front terrace has the plung pool (which is very cold, but very welcome on a hot day).
There are lots of supermarkets and tapas bars around the area (try Aitor just round the corner - €1.40 per tapa and the G&T's are huge! The bonus is that all the patrons were locals!)
Taxi into the Gothic area is about €7-€10! Taxi from Airport about €25-€30 :-)More
