The congress will take place in two different venues of Barcelona. The first of these is Fira Gran Via, located on Joan Carles I Avenue in L'Hospitalet de Llobregat, right next to Barcelona. The second venue is in Fira Montjuïc, on Avenida Maria Cristina, next to Plaça d'Espanya.

We are a family of 4 (2 adults and 2 young teens). This apartment is very easy to get to, with a metro station within a stones throw. The system they have to get the keys is easy, and they also check in person and via email if everything is okay. The apartment has everything you need , and we could stay here easily forever. The neighbourhood has heaps of places to eat. The Sagrada can be seen from the balcony - the view is amazing. The trip into Barcelona central is easy, about 3 metro stops, which is about 10 min, plus a short walk. We would stay here again, and would recommend any of the EnjoyBCN apartments based on this one.
We are so glad to see that you had a great experience in our apartment and that you liked the location. The truth is that Sagrada Familia is a great neighborhood: calm, well connected and with everything you may need around you.
It has been a pleasure to host you. We hope to see you soon in Barcelona!

We enjoyed the stay very much and have well appreciated the gesture of the roses of the first. Yes, it did help us to understand the tradition. We met twice a French man who regularly came into the building, apparently working for your company, who was very kind and helpful. The flat was very well organized and suited well our purposes of sightseeing with a family of 5. The only little negative note would be the pool on the roof, which definitely looks much larger on the pictures. In reality this is no pool and could be indicated to your clients; Otherwise, everything was perfect! Best regards
We are glad to see that you liked the apartment and felt well taken care of by Pierre, our concierge. He'll be so happy to see this comment.
We appreciate your useful feedback that will help us to improve the apartment for future travelers.
