A little headache during check-in, but otherwise, good experience; would definitely stay there again!

I had a great stay at the apartment. It was near everything, about 4 blocks from Sagrada Familia. There is a supermarket directly across the street, fish store to the left of the apartment building, and produce shop down the street. There is also a Halal restaurant across the street that was good. Taxis were easy to get at the corner or a block down at the main intersection. The apartment was clean and comfy. Loved the terrace, the kitchen was great and the beds were comfy. The place is decorated nicely, not extremely extravagant but good enough, looked just like the pictures. What I did not like: 1) Very nice kitchen and fridge but no ice trays 2) apartment does not have a full length mirror 3) hot water ran out, it was on the next day but that would be annoying had My stay been in colder months. Overall I was pleasantly pleased and what I did not like were not major deal breakers. I would definitely stay here again!

The apartment was great space for five adult travelers. The staff gave us ticket options and ideas of ways to get to those sights. We had a great time and it was enhanced by having a comfortable place to regroup and rest.

We only stayed here for three nights, and I wish it would have been more! The location was great. The staff were really helpful. The facilities were really nice, with a good view and nice furniture. Be aware: This is not a traditional hotel suite, but a true apartment. We had two bedrooms, a full kitchen, dining area, an expansive sitting room, and two balconies. There were four beds total, and someone could probably sleep on the couch, too. Reception is located four blocks away, which was not convenient, since our flight was delayed and we arrived after the reception area was closed. But we called the emergency reception number, and they met us there after 10:30 p.m. Throughout our stay, the reception staff were really helpful. They helped set up tours and taxis for us. Super nice, super friendly, and they spoke English well. The Basilica at La Sagrada Familia is an easy five-block walk. There's a Metro stop there, as well, which opens up the whole city to you. All the cool stuff around La Sagrada Familia is also easily accessible. There are decent restaurants around, but the apartments are not located in a very busy tourist area. Las Ramblas is too far to walk (although you can easily take the Metro). Cab fare was 30-35 Euro each way. I enjoyed staying here very much. I highly advise it, although it's probably a better fit for families or larger groups than singles or couples.

Excellent location, nice surroundings , lively neighborhood ( but peaceful )local restaurants, grocery stores, fruit shop very nearby (within 100 meters ). 10 minutes walk from Sagrada Familia, and 40 minutes for La Rambla. Appartment very nicely set up, staff is very helpful, I do recommend it without any reserve

Reserved 36hrs prior to arrival. Staff went out of way on few occasions that made our stay much better (The few staff I met spoke very good english). They were helpful in getting us grounded to enjoy our stay. The apartment is designed to have an extended stay. Wifi strength is good. 3-4 blocks from the subway, get the day passes, allowing for quick movement around town. Just up the block from Sagrada Familia Cathedral (thats one of the must see things in BCN).

The hotel is located less than 10 mins to La Sagrada Familia and the subway and is situated in a nice barrio (neighbourhood) where locals meet and dine. The hotel itself is very well maintained and quiet. Would stay there again and definitely recommend this to everyone.

Very clean hotel located in quiet area. Beds were very comfortable, in walking distance to good restaurants and tourist attractions. Would book again when returning to Barcelona.

The apartment we stayed in for 3 days was comfortable and had everything a couple could want; washer, dishwasher, comfortable bed and close to everything in order to enjoy all that Barcelona has to offer. The apartments have been renovated nicely and I appreciate that the kitchen is well stocked but the apartment isn't crowded with a lot of extra junk. We cooked fresh dinners with food purchased from the local market and fish store, both around the corner from the apartment. The only problem we encountered was that the internet was down for about 36 hours. Evidently Sensation Apartments depends on a private firm to repair the internet.

Though finding the place was difficult and then the email did not mention there are multiple locations and the office is where you need an address to, then the actual place. Otherwise, I have NO other issues. The apartment was more than comfortable for 3 young children, with amenities that were suitable to our needs. Located in a very nice area within walking distance of the Sagrad familia and close to just about everything else on our list. Classy place and clean, the packnplay was very comfy, more comfy than the one I have at home!!! Nice set up all around and I will definitely be staying again on my next visit!!! The place even came with "hotel-like" soaps to use in the shower/sink. Air conditioned place dwith WIFI rounded out our entire stay!!! Great place and more than worth the money spent.

Didn't take pics of the apartment but everything was there for us to enjoy breakfast on the terrace. And all food items were bought across the street at the local market.
