Great apartment, want to come back

The apartment is great - basic, but clean and has everything.
We were met at late hour by the owner and given keys and phones of both owners. Just in case we needed any help. We did not need it, everything was fine. And, they let us stay the last day till late afternoon, as we had an evening flight and the apartemnt was free that day!
The stairs and neighbourhood is friendly and queit, nice green Diagonal boulebard outside.The location is very good, next to metro stations of 3 different lines (Monumental, Glorias) and a bit away, but stil close, one called after Sagrada Familia, which you can even see from the window. Tram line to the beach is close too.
We found that Barcelona metro is so good and reliable, you can get from anywhere to anywhere in approx. 30min, including wait time, no closed lines and stations nonsense.
There are few small shops downstairs, small supermarket round the corner, and a big Carrefour on the other side of the huge Glorias junction with a glowing gerkin building.
Book Sagrada Familia tickets online or in the large yellow Caixa banking machines which you can see everywhere. It will save you a lot of time. You can do the same for Casa Batllo and Casa Mila/La Pedrera, and save even more time.
