U232 Hotel

Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 3 May 2012

This hotel is not located near las ramblas or Plaça Catalunya but in a typical residential area in L'Eixample. Therefore, while walking to and out of the hotel, having a café in one of the many nice cafes nearby, you could feel the atmosphere of the true Barcelona, not that one over crowded in las ramblas. Awesome neighbourhood. Despite that, we were never too far from the main atractions, either by subway or bus.
It's worth to do some research before your trip to discover amazing places to eat nearby.
The hotel itself was pertty comfortable, with a nice terrace, good TV and good storage space. Pretty good beds too, and room of apropriate size.
I didn't have breakfast at the hotel but in cafés nearby. Try that, it's not too hard to order a café and great pastries in Barcelona!
I will definetly stay here again when I come back to this amazing city!.

Room Tip: They have several types of rooms. Also, street Comte d'Urgell might be a bit noisy early morming...

Stayed April 2012 with my wife and year-old baby. We had a good time.

LOCATION:
About half-an-hour's walk from the "tourist centre" of Barcelona, or there's a metro stop about five minutes from the hotel. It felt a safe area to walk around, and there are places to get food nearby and a supermarket just round the corner.

RECEPTION/STAFF/BOOKING/ETC:
No problems at all, friendly and helpful staff with excellent English.

ROOM:
We had a standard double with a baby travel cot by the side of the bed, and there was still plenty of space in the room. The bathroom was acceptable but not amazing; the shower was okay -- hot and reasonably powerful -- but was just a hose plus head coming off the bath taps. Small balcony outside (but nice large terrace available on the roof).

MINOR ISSUES:
Had to ask each day for them to replace finished bottle of shower gel and bar of soap.
Shower could be better.

OVERALL:
I'd be happy to go back, but would probably look at what else is available for the price (paid about €120/night)

The hotel is well maintained, very nice rooms, even if on the smaller side.
great location just next to the metro and nice neighborhood, I walked alone at night and felt very safe.
The stuff is very helpful and professional.
good experience for a business hotel.

We booked this hotel based on the reviews we read on TripAdvisor, very disappointed!! Good points: staff were nice, clean room, ok mattress. The "not good" points: DARK small room without any windows, never saw a ray of sun light in that room. Low ceiling, very claustrophobic! The bathroom is very small, I had to be extra careful not to bang my head on the sink when getting up from the toilet. Other than the first night we stayed there, amenities were not replenished for the next 2 nights. Breakfast was not appealing for the price we paid for. We paid 190 euro per night, including breakfast for 2 … I really felt I was ripped off!!

The hotel is located about 20 minutes walk from Ramblas. I had a room on the 2nd floor facing the back of the building. It was very quiet so sleeping was not a problem. The room itself was small but adequate and quite modern. The bathroom was good although I did have to ask for some soap. Wi-fi was free throughout the hotel. Breakfast was ok but nothing special.
