Sata apartments are holiday rental apartments situated in the Sagrada Familia area in Barcelona. The apartments are located just 5 minutes walk from Joanic metro station and 15 minutes from Sagrada Familia. If you’re looking for affordable accommodation for your next family vacation to Barcelona, consider Sata Apartments.
Traveling as a family can be quite expensive especially staying in hotels, this is why I recommend rental properties. In February we stayed in Casale Amati a family owned holiday rental in the Tuscany region of Italy. It was during our Tuscany Adventures that I was definitely convinced that holiday rentals are better than hotels. Don’t get me wrong, we loved staying in Hotel Albert 1er in Toulouse, but for a family apartments are affordable. Whenever I travel with my parents, it means two hotel rooms which can be quite pricey.
Whereto Stay in Barcelona: Sata Apartments
Our visit to the incredible city of Barcelona was a 48-hour affair, we found ourselves limited on time. But looking at how we spent our time, you wouldn’t have thought it at all, we took our sweet time. One thing I have come to love about traveling with parents is exploring at a leisurely pace. Often when I travel alone, I have a busier than usual schedule and opt to only chill at night. But with my parents, I have to be mindful and take everything at their pace.
Our planning to visit the historical city of Barcelona started weeks prior when I found an incredible deal. If you haven’t seen it already, check out the four travel apps I used to find incredible deals. Our flights to Costa Brava and return were £15.98pp via Ryanair though first seen on Skyscanner. I would encourage anyone who wants to travel more to read my previous post for tips.
How-to get to Sata Apartments
Since we landed in Girona, we took a bus to the main bus station in Barcelona, then a taxis. The apartment is not too far from the station but since I was traveling with my parents, taxis was best. You can also take the metro, hop off at main station the take another to get off at Joanic. As mentioned the metro is 5 minutes walk to the apartment.
Good to-know information.
Sata apartments are two bed apartments, a living room and a functional kitchen. The owner provide the minimum essentials in terms of foods for a small fee. We booked the apartment because it would then buy our own food and cook our meals.
There is one bathroom to share which is adequately sized with a shower cubicle but no tub. When I travel I prefer shower cubicles to tubs except for luxury accommodation. Towels are provided for four persons, two per room which is quite handy.
Other essentials provided in the rooms include iron and ironing board and extra blankets/pillows. Each room has a radiator for when it becomes a bit colder but the beddings and warm enough. The storage in each room is sufficient, what stood out for us was the decor of the apartment.
If you don’t fancy cooking whilst staying in the holiday rental, there are plenty of restaurants around. We loved the local shops were we picked up some fresh fruits and essentials.
What we loved about Sata Apartments
When I was booking the apartment on *Booking.com, one thing that struck me was the decor. The apartment was is very spacious for Barcelona, the location is perfect. Our aim was to visit the Sagrada Familia and Park Güell and this apartment was perfectly located.
To enter the apartment building you are provided with a code and there is a lift available. If you’re checking in outside the working hours, there is self check in service available. Instructions are provided in the confirmation email with the code to enter the building and open the locker.
Terms and conditions are provided in a form of a one page contract and should be abided to. There is a 10-pm no noise rule which is great as some places can be quite noisy. One thing we loved was the seating area was quite relaxed, we felt like we were home away from home.
I would definitely recommend the apartments to anyone looking for affordable and comfortable accommodation. Check out their website and book your own stay on your next visit to Barcelona.
