    The hotel staff were first class - they knew our name on arrival and went out of their way to ensure that we had the best stay possible. they kept our bags safe when we went out (after checking out) until we picked them up, and nothing was too much trouble. The best welcome and service I have ever had in a hotel - Thanks! The rooms were clean and spacious with fantastic showers! the décor was interesting but the rooms were really clean. There is a double hob, kettle, fridge and microwave, preparation space is limited but rooms had a table and chairs and were very comfortable. Lots of supermarkets, local bars and restaurants nearby. a 10 minute walk to Sagrada Familia and near to the city centre and metro stations. The hotel does not have an obvious frontage and is accessed via a glazed door to the left of the 'CAINSA' shop - this made it a little hard to find initially. (look for CAINSA and the building number 430). Would highly recommend this hotel. Good value for money for the price - We will definitely stay again.

    We stayed 5 nights at AO430 during our 2 weeks holiday in Spain. You can reach AO430 pretty easily as it is at 7-10 minutes away from a couple metro lines and 5 minutes away from several bus lines. The apartment we've stayed in was spacious, clean, with functional appliances and furniture, but a little bit outdated. If you look closer to the apartment, there are details that should be taken care of, but nothing really disturbing if you are visiting the city all day long. A big issue indeed might be if you are a light sleeper as the building is rather noisy and our apartment also faced the street and there were a lot of scooters and motorbikes that ran the street from early hours to late at night.

    We are a mature couple and this was our first time to Barcelona. The apartment building is very non-descript and not easy to spot from the street, even our taxi driver drove right past it. The room was plenty big enough and very clean. the location was convenient to most things and was very quiet. The staff was friendly and helpful. We would stay here again and would recommend this place to our friends.

    This place is much better then a hotel, with only a sleeping room and a bathroom. For two people, there is plenty of space to sit, sleep and eat. The room and the hotel were very clean. Near the hotel there are plenty of shops for food and drink or bars. Barcelona is a beautiful city and this hotel is a perfect base to explore the city and its highlights. Within walking distance you find the Sagrada Familia 600 meters), Busstation Barcelona Nord (800 m), the Ramblas (800 m), Metro (600 m) In short, a perfect place to stay.

    The hotel was located close to the city center, however I found it a bit too far away to reach the city center by foot. After we rented the bikes, the city center, the beach and other attractions became very close. The metro is a good option too. There are a lot of product shops and backeries around. So we had a very nice breakfast every morning in the room. There were all necessary things in the kitchen to prepare it. The room had space. Minor things, which may bother: - The bed was a bit small. I had a feeling that it was even smaller than 140 cm. - It was a bit dark in the room. The lamps, which were in the room, produce too little light - only Spanish channels on TV

    About 20 min walk from the metro, I personally, knowing what i know now would not get the metro to verdaguer as suggested, but to girona or tetuan by changing tubes which is easy enough. Unfortunately the staff on the desk do not speak English but I managed to communicate with my iPad when i really needed to. The decor in this place is rather tired and a bit strange, and that's being diplomatic. The lighting in the kitchen and lack of equipment let it down, it doesn't take much to provide the basic condiments either. No air con, which meant we had windows open all the time and was on busy Main Street (which all streets are in Barcelona, due to street layout) so was rather noisy. The big plus was that a maid came in daily and even washed some breakfast dishes that we left in a hurry. Although we did not eat there, there was a little place just on corner of street that always seemed popular at all times. Plenty of supermarkets on the street in both directions (keisley and marcedona probably best for variety).

    The hotel situated in the nice area and near the Tetuan metro that very convenient to go by foot or by metro to nearby tourist areas. Surrounding full of restaurants and bars and supermarkets that can supply most of the daily things. You can cook and make coffee in the kitchen which feel very cozy after going out for all days. The service attendant would make up the bed everyday and clear the bin and bath tub, so comfortable and relax and a big clean on each 3 days, I can't see any disappointment by staying here.

The neighborhood is nice and seems perfectly safe. The staff is very friendly and will keep your bags for you if you have a late flight to catch, as we did. Overall, highly recommended for anyone who doesn't mind longish walks.

There is a divan, tlow table, chairs, the bed for 2, a lot of space and a small kitchen with microwave and extractor as well. Very wide with a decoration somewhat bland. Bathroom complete with bathtub. I will come back for sure... Looking for negative points? Very low table (we should have eaten on our knees), no hairdryer, dishes and pans are minimal.

Would have been better if we had been provided with directions to the apartment as we found it difficult to find.

    We can´t add anything relevant to most of the previous comments. Spacious rooms with small double beds however, friendly staff and most places to visit within easy reach by metro (Plaça Tetuan). Authentic neighbourhood: you get the feeling you are the only tourist in the area. We certainly will recommend this place. The only thing we regret is that the staff (at least those we met) doesn´t speak or sometimes even understand English. So start polishing your Catalan!

    The location is 20 minutes walk from Ramblas if you don`t want to take the subway. From the airport, it is easier to take the airport shuttle bus which will take you right to Ramblas (or 2 minutes walk from Ramblas). Then you can take subway or just walk that 20 minutes to the quiet neighbourhood.

    An excellent location in Exiemple. Quite noisy traffic but only to be expected. The apartment itself was roomy and immaculate with everything we needed. Staff were really helpful, ordering a taxi for the airport for an early departure. The apartment was difficult to find as we didn't really understand the logic of the numbering of the buildings- clear instructions on how to get there would have been useful. Some excellent little shops and cafes nearby. Not at all touristy- we felt as if we were living in the real community and would have liked to stay longer.

This studio apartment is quite spacious with microwave and cooking facility. The supermarket is in 5 min walking distance.we manage to make our own breakfast.got free porn channel 24 hour (he he).a stone throw away can catch bus to the city centre catalunya bus no 55 n 19.this place is very quite n safe.

    The apartment was wonderful, and we liked the residential neighborhood and local restaurants (far less touristy than the center places) and services. One drawback was that any metro was 5 blocks away which would be fine for a longer stay. We were in Barcelona only two days, and the distances were somewhat inefficient. Also, the elevator broke and could not be fixed by the time we left -- Sunday, National holiday made repair impossible. Four flights (3rd floor) up (with luggage down).

We used always the Girona metro station or we walked to Sagrada Familia, Arc de Triomphe, Casa Batlo, Catalunya,... There are backery, supermarket, greengrocer in the street and a post office in front of the house. It was one of the best choise in our journey practice.

We thought the location was good, close to Metro and busses and about a 20 minute walk into the city if you don’t mind walking (we walked a lot and the area was safe). The kitchen was good and had the basics except a toaster but we worked around that. The room however did smell of cigarette smoke which wasn’t good for a non-smoker but the room was clean and has air-conditioning. The owner was nice and helpful and gave us a map and pointed out things to see and do. Overall we really enjoyed our stay and though it was good value for money.

It was a very pleasant surprise to find a spacious clean room, comfortable and ideal for our 2-night stay, we even had a patio.

    Excellent location for most attractions in Barcelona and excellent value for money. Close to 2 metro stops. It was good to be able to visit the attractions all day and then come back to a flat where you could make yourself some coffee/tea/beer and imperative siesta before venturing out at night again. Supermarkets and bread shops nearby. No safe there but the apartments seemed very secure. Supposedly had wifi but we could not get it working. One staff member spoke some English, the rest very little.

    Not a good experience. Room was dim and dingy. It has no actual windows to the outside. What's there is an opaque sort of window that lets in light but you can't actually see through it or open it. This wouldn't have been such a problem for just one night except that I returned from dinner to find my room full of cigarette smoke. I always book non-smoking rooms. My room had ashtrays but I didn't think to ask if I was on a non-smoking floor (or if they even have one, which is doubtfull considering the size of the place and the fact that the staff were always smoking in their office when I went there). Anyway, I had no way to ventilate the room and the smoke seemed to be coming from other rooms via the central air. It was a very unpleasant night for me.

    The check in is strictly at 8 pm. that is why it is so cheap but definitely worth the price, manager a bit rude and we had to cancel a dinner due to the late check in. nice big room, apartment style.

    Excellent place with a great location. 10 minutes walking from Sagrada Familia, close to Metro stations and to the city's center. Hotel staff is great, very helpful. They even allowed us to check in early without paying the early check in fee. The room was very clean and spacious, and even though cleaning was supposed to be every 3 days, it was cleaned almost daily. We loved it and would definitely go back.

    Not really an "apartment"... more like a low-to-no-service hotel. All rooms poorly decorated (except the ones pictured on the website), we had stayed at beginning and end of our holiday. Poor kitchen amenities (not even a light over sink)just a hotplate and espresso maker to use. Apartment was spacious, however, and cleaner than most. I agree with other reviewer who mentions that linens had a foul vinegar smell. Location was very good... easy walking distance to Sagrada Familia and the bus station, also close to the west end of the Ramblas and other Gaudi sites (Casa Mila, Casa Batlo)... lots of cafe's, grocers, and shops in neighborhood.

    Very good hotel, but no good reservation. The price is not so clean in the booking-email. The price refers only for the night and not for the all day. The overall price is not indicated!!! PAY ATTETION. you have to add 55 euro more if you want the room for the all day!

    The room was very clean. It was very big. It had lot of facilites. But I could not leave my luggage till 8 pm and I was in Barcelon much earlier than that. Another bad thing was that the room had to be empty by 10 am, too early. Our room was in the side of the street and was a bit noisy. You could hear the people in the other rooms too. The prize was very good compared to other hotels, hostels...in Barcelona. Anyways, I would go again and I recommend it.

    Indications on how to get there were clear and precise. The local manager was efficient and speak good english. What has been seen on Internet was the reality. We asked for a iron board and an hair dryer and they were in the appt when we arrived. Our appt was located on the street side but on the fifth floor and with all windows shut it was silent enough for a good night sleep. Well located at 10 minutes waking from the Sagrada Familia and Passeig Gracia and Playa Catalunya we were closed enough from the activities of that beautiful city. Metro station was two blocks from the appt.

Very good value for money. Only disadvantage: a school near from the apartment, so kids screaming are noisy. We have also heard all night along noisy people in the room next from our.

We stayed there for 4 days, and after busy days of exploring Barcelona, returning to AO430 really was like coming home! It was like having your personal appartment in Barcelona - thanks again to the staff for the wonderful stay.

    The AO430 primarily caters to couples, who know eachother very well, because two persons have to share one bed 135 cm., and AO430 do not provide 2 single beds. The neighbourhood is very good and calm and with a lot of good bars/cafes/breakfastplaces. In the future, it would be nice, if AO430 could offer single beds and free wi-fi -everything else is very good.

    We had a good stay in AO430 apartments: 5-10 minutes walking to closest metro station (L2-Tetuan), pharmacy and banks in the nearbies. The bed was double/full (135 cm large) size as described in the web, but we really do think that there would have been enough space for a queen size. General level of noise inside apartment is decent: a part from continous slamming of apartments' doors resonating in the stairs, we were unlucky the first two nights only due to a "too much passionate" couple in the near apartment. AO430 was cheaper than a hotel (no breakfast in both cases) and we enjoyed a free minibar use included.

    the location was slightly north of the main central area and we especially liked that we were in a "real area" where people actually live and work. it was also a very nice /upper class kind of area. the only complaint is we had some very rude people on the floor above us who walked back and forth very loudly on top of our celing at all hours for a couple of days. otherwise the appartment was fantastic and we really enjoyed our stay.

    My major issue is the very basic cooking facilities. There were hotplates, and after 2 days a microwave oven appeared. Then on our last day, dishwashing equipment appeared. The apartment complex should also intall internet access. Good location but not truly an apartment, more like a bedsitter.

    Overall, I believe this apartment is an excellent value. The surrounding area is very nice and is within several blocks of three metro stations. In addition, the apartment was fairly clean and met our needs. However, the apartment had several things that should be improved. First, the bed is a US double and is quite small. Although the apartment is fairly clean, the sheets and towels had a vinegar smell. We ate our breakfast in the room but the facilities and eating area are small and lack essentials such as a coffee pot. The room has a pot to brew hot water so we had instant coffee and expresso throughout the stay. The brands we used were quite and was not a major problem. The room could also use an iron as our clothes were quite wrinkled from traveling. Although the unit lacks internet capability, an internet business is located within a short distance of the apartment. Overall, the unit was as advertised and met our needs, it is really for the frugal traveler.

    We stayed 4 nights at Apt AO430. We were delighted that although we arrived on the dot of 11pm (our ferry docked 5 hrs late) the reception was still there awaiting us! The apartment was spacious and the bathroom excellent, but the kitchen facilities did not really allow for cooking as there was no bench space and little crockery or cutlery. But the location was good - close to the Sagra Famiglia - though a bit of a hike to the centre of town. The lift was a bonus and there were plenty of restaurants in the vicinity. We enjoyed our stay there and would go there again.

    Really close to Sagrada Familia, and really close to the metro. For people coming from the United States, do keep in mind that smoking is allowed in the hotel, so if you have severe allergies, that might be a problem. However, it is not overpowering. This hotel was great in the sense that it had a fridge and was very close to several grocery stores. They kept it very clean, and the staff was very friendly.

    We have to ask the change of the matress, because it wasn´t good enough. But they have really complimented our request. The area is very good is near The Sagrada Familia and it´s full of shoppings. (If I were the owners I take off the artificial plants and clean the curtains or not permit to smoke in the appartments because or the cigarette smell).
