My wife and I had stayed in Barcelona before and as we were looking for the same quality and value we decided to stay in the area of L'eixample again.
Renting an apartment also gave us the opportunity to enjoy our own space and cook our own breakfast (there's a supermarket and bakery just down the street).
Our apartment was spotless when we arrived (the rooms are generally cleaned every other day after your arrival, which I was fine with). Our room was facing onto a school, but it wasn't as noisy as I thought it might be.
The bathroom had all the usuals (bathtub, decent shower with adjustable temperature). The kitchen was kitted out with a fridge, microwave, 2 hobs and a sink. The bed was very spacious and comfortable.
The Wifi was a bonus too. More than made up for the lack of English speaking TV channels as we just streamed some radio.
The main reason for staying at AO430, apart from the cost, was the close proximity to La Sagrada Familia. Especially as I wanted to take photos of it at sunrise (definitely recommended as there are no crowds!) A brisk 10 minute walk and you're there.
If you want to be close to all the action (la Rambla etc) and you want to be in close walking distance, then this place isn't for you. However, the nearest metro stop (Girona) is only 10 mins along the same road and you can get into the heart of Barcelona with ease.
One thing we couldn't comment on was the service. As we were fairly self contained and we'd been to Barcelona before we didn't need any help. We saw them at check in and check out. No problems though.
All in all, a lovely little place and a good base to explore Barca!
