— What's nearby? —
This apartment is located in central Barcelona only 500m from the famous Sagrada Familia.
There are four supermarkets and all normal shops within a 100m radius as well as several secure public car parks.
There are also plenty of bars and restaurants very close by and it only takes three minutes to get the 'Tetaun' metro station where you have direct access to the L2 (purple). It's a 15 minute stroll to get to Plaça Catalunya.
Street side parking is free in August but I can provide access to parking at less then ten Euros per day all year round but this is a metro ride away.
So, if you are looking for a modern apartment, with a very stylish decoration, centrally located and very well communicated, this is the apartment for you.

Positives: reasonably clean, nice showers.
Negatives, where do I start ?
So, we got there, met some pure whealer dealer called Nick and his Scottish missus. They were reasonable friendly until, for some reason, all 8 of us had to pay another 50 euros with no warning. The pathetic men that we all are, we oblige.
So we all choose are rooms the minute they left and realised that the apartment doesn't sleep up to 8 people at all !! One of us, albeit he was the shortest, but the kid is still like 5"10, had to sleep on this 4 foot sofa for the whole week. 2 of us rotated so he didn't have to sleep there the whole week, but still poor.
About 2 days into the holiday we found that the front door to the apartment was becoming harder and harder to open and shut. We rang Dania (the women who partly runs it) at midnight, and she was extremely unhelpful, and had no helpful suggestions, basically she didn't really care. So we went out for the night and returned in the early hours of the morning to find ourselves locked out. We had three keys between us, but the door was completely jammed. We attempted to sleep in the filthy stairwell the whole night which only a few of us managed. We rang Nick and Dania at the time and they reluctantly answered the phone at 9 in the morning. When Dania answered her phone it sounded like she was receiving Nicks daily morning load. Therefore she wasn't helpful again. However, Nick tried his best and being full of energy I'm not surprised. But then he claimed that he couldn't get his car out of his garage, further delaying our wait. He sent a locksmith to unjam the door but nothing. He had to buy a new lock and then complained about the money it cost him, but he did show compassion that we had been locked out the whole night.
Lastly, it should be mentioned that the neighbours hate any noise, but obviously this isn't mention on TripAdvisor.
