Sensation Sagrada Familia
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 29 July 2014

Having read the reviews, we expected something special and we weren't disappointed. These beautiful, spotless, spacious apartments are perfectly located to explore this fantastic city. If you want to explore on foot the "centre" of the city ( place de catalunya and la ramblas) are around 30 mins walk through the fine architecture of the side streets or about 6 euros in a taxi (there are taxis everywhere so its very easy to get to anywhere, if you don't want to walk)
The apartments are surrounded by a vast array of restaurants, the Avenu de Gaudi is around 100yds to the right, as you leave the apartments and it stretches for around half a mile, lined with loads of places to sit and and enjoy the atmosphere, there are similar streets all over the city if you let your feet take you
Back to the apartments, they are ultra trendy, well equipped with everything you could wish for and the reception staff are very friendly and helpful, nothing was too much trouble and they always had a smile and greeting for you every time you passed by. The rooftop terrace areas are a wonderful place to relax after a day sightseeing with the refreshing plunge pool at one side and another deck on the rear with a view dominated by the Sagrada Familia.
Believe the reviews, Barcelona is a wonderful city and these apartments are a fantastic place to enjoy it from
We had a wonderful time and would come back to these apartments in a heartbeat

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 :-)

Our family (two kids aged 12 and 15, two adults) booked for 8 nights in high season (late July) and we were incredibly impressed with all facets of the 'Sensation Sagrada Familia.' All of our pre arrival questions were promptly answered by email, and when we called from the airport the very friendly gentleman at the front desk seemed genuinely happy to welcome us. When we arrived we were not disappointed. We were welcomed with a seamless and efficient professionalism and were offered tips on where to go for an evening meal along with a thorough overview of the facilities at the apartments, which are many and varied. There are two beautiful rooftop decks. One facing the stupendous Sagrada Familia, which is only a few hundred metres away. This is a lovely patio with oversized outdoor furniture suitable for an evening drink or to just contemplate Gaudi's as yet incomplete masterpiece. The other deck is fully enclosed and very private, and it is well furnished with new lounge chairs and a cozy shaded corner section as well. On this deck you will find the tiny and very cute dipping pool along with an outdoor shower, both of which are welcome after a hot day in the Barcelona sun. Other building amenities include a fitness facility, a washer and dryer room with two Bosch washers and two dryers (free of charge, soap included), and most impressively, a full concierge service. The smiling and incredibly helpful and friendly front desk staff (especially the young gentleman), were absolutely invaluable for everything from daily trip planning tips, to ticket sourcing for the many attractions in the city, to shopping suggestions, to re supplying with extra towels, soap, toilet paper and other incidentals. There was even a complimentary bottle of wine in our apartment when we arrived, and we received a complimentary cleaning as we were staying for longer than a week. Now to the apartment itself: it was spacious and had a lovely, large, private terrace looking directly on to the Sagrada Familia. The air conditioning kept the apartment nice and cool at night, and it was incredibly quiet so we all slept very well. The apartment was very clean and stylishly appointed. The kitchen was well stocked with everything we needed to cook meals at home when we wished, and all of the appliances (stove, microwave, stove top, dishwasher, Nespresso maker, fridge etc.) worked well. The beds were comfortable and the shower had excellent pressure and a good supply of very hot water. We would highly recommend the 'Sensation Sagrada Familia' for anyone who is looking for apartment style accommodations while visiting Barcelona. It is excellent value, and the staff go well out of their way to make your stay enjoyable.

We had a large group of 10 and this beautiful 4 bedroom apartment (with a pull out bed in the livingroom) was perfect for our group! Our group ranged in age from 15 to 80 years & it met all of our needs for each member. The apartment was very clean and well maintained. Nice and quiet area of town with a great grocery store just a few blocks away and a beautiful view of the Sagrada Familia. Also lots of restaurants within walking distance. We walked all over the city from the apartment. The staff also had great suggestions for restaurants. We would stay here again in a heart-beat!

My family of five (including three young kids, aged 9, 7 and 2) had a really nice 9-day stay at Sensation Sagrada Familia.

The apartment was clean, comfortable and modern. We had a lovely view of the Sagrada Familia from our balcony (and fireworks on the Night of St John, as a bonus!). Housekeeping was prompt in meeting our requests - we asked for a cot for our toddler, and they came with cot, baby chair and baby bathtub, on their own initiative. The reception was always generous with everything we needed - help with dinner reservations, advice on car rental, etc.

There were many lovely restaurants and cafés in the vicinity for meals. Bambu next door served reliable cooked breakfasts, while the bakery directly across the street had such a wide variety of delicious pastries that our diverse preferences could be accommodated. Many choices too for lunches and dinners: literally around the corner, Paradeta (no frills, super fresh seafood) and Fidalgo (sophisticated and innovative food, served in settings with candlelight and nice linens, yet always welcoming of our three young kids) were favorites. (Caution: avoid Babilonia! It's expensive and gives Spanish - and Italian - food a bad name.)

My husband surprised me with a trip to Barcelona for our anniversary and we stayed here for four nights. The rooms are very modern and beautiful decor but above all spotless!! The apartment was well equipped with everything we could ever have needed pots and pans, glasses, dishwasher, fridge freezer, oven etc. It's one block from the sagrada familia and the metro, Gina on reception was super helpful booking us reservations to restaurants, advice on metro tickets and excursions all booked through her for no extra charge! They even gave us a bottle of cava to celebrate our anniversary... I wouldn't hesitate to recommend to anyone!

Just stayed 4 nights at these apartment and it was lovely. The beds were great and the pillows. Metro within walking distance. Very clean and just loved the supplied toiletries as they smelled lovely. Missed not having a fill length mirror. Great location. Staff were wonderful and always helpful at the reception. Helped with suggestions. Good size rooms. Missed no washing machine in apartment. Lounges comfortable. Just loved our stay there. Went with family and never an issue. Noise level good. Loved having a balcony. Shops for groceries around the corner. Would recommend. Knew about the very small pool but had a drink around 5ish on the top balcony overlooking the familia and it was breathtaking.
