The appartment was very clean and modern and we were welcomed by friendly staff who were regularly on hand throughout our stay. Lots of small supermarkets and cafes close by to purchase provisions and grab a coffee and cake. Museu Nacional D'Art De Catalunya is fantastic, if you like Art, and the ticket allows for 2 days of visiting- just watch out for the price of soft drinks (take a small picnic!). Roof top restaurants at the Placa Espanya have great food and fab views. Worth wandering through the city and down to the beach but to speed up journey times but a T10 ticket (10 journeys for less than 10 euros), the metro is very quick and efficient.
