Reviewed 19 May 2012

We stayed two nights here at the start of May, and were really pleasantly surprised by just how nice the hotel was! Both the room and public areas of the hotel were all very well decorated and very clean and tidy. The room was quiet and had plenty of space for suitcases, the queen size bed was very comfy and although we had a view of the apartment buildings out the back, the balcony was a nice addition. The jazz music played throughout the hotel was a nice touch, although we could just make it out from the bedroom during the night. The only negative thing I can mention about the hotel was that the price of drinks from the hotel lobby bar were pretty expensive, but as there are many local bars nearby, we had many cheaper alternatives to chose from, also loads of nice restaurants nearby recommended by the hotel staff (try Maitea for great local tapas!) All in all, a great hotel in a great location, close enough to the main parts of Barcelona to walk, but far enough to be away from the crowds. Would highly recommend staying here for any length of time, and would definitely return next time in Barcelona.

My wife, daughter and I spent three nights at this hotel in May 2012. It was a little way from the very centre of Barcelona but is easy walking distance to The Parc Guell and to the Sagrada Familia and close to a number of excellent restaurants and tapas bars. We tried 'Flash, Flash' and the 'Velodrome' both of which were good value and had excellent menus. The U232 has a metro stop about 100 yards away and a garage next door where you get 5 euros discount off the 24 hour rate. We didn't take breakfast there as there are a lot of good breakfast places nearby which are fun to try. The hotel room was fine - decor a bit dark for some tastes but quite stylish. Free wifi and very helpful and friendly service at the desk. Would certainly recommend.

We have just returned from our second stay at U232 in Barcelona. The hotel is really very nice. It is not very centrally located but is a two minute walk from the Hospital Clinic metro station and we enjoy the quietness of the area. The metro service in Barcelona is really fantastic so there is really no need to stay right in the hustle and bustle.

We had a 'top room' which had an incredible large terrace with very comfortable furniture. Also the bathroom was amazing and just massive with a huge sunken bath tub and excellent shower.

We really like this hotel and would definitely stay there again. If I had to give some constructive criticism it would be about the coffee with breakfast which was really not good.

Overall I would recommend this hotel to anyone visiting Barcelona.

well! i know when you are travelling you really are more concerned about the location and other things about the hotel, as one is expected to be partying in a city like barcelona..
So, both me and my husband.. we had been travelling to south to Spain, so coming to barcelona meant we wanted to see the night life.. go dancing.. casino etc and much more..
This hotel was amazing. well located.. central. very warm staff, nice business center etc.
On the first night, we came back to the hotel super tired.. wanted to take a half hour nap and leave for a mad night.. however! it didnt happen.. because the beds were sooooooo comfortable.. next thing we woke up after 6 hours.. both of us! The beds were like super comfortable!
I think party animals should stay away from this hotel.. else you'll end up sleeping:)
nice place overall!

Room Tip: any room should be fine!

My daughter and I stayed one night here at the end of our trip to Spain. We were pleasantly surprised with all aspects of our stay, which exceeded our expectations. Room was immaculate and reasonably spacious, with modern decor and a balcony overlooking the city. Hotel staff were unfailingly pleasant and helpful. Location is out of the hectic traffic and noise of the Rambla area, and quiet, expecially the rooms on the back side of the hotel. Location is removed from many of the major attractions (Rambla, Park Guell, Sagreda Familia), but still easily accessible by public transportation or committed walkers such as we are. Overall, was the best of the Barcelona hotels we used, although not the most expensive.

Room Tip: the balcony rooms, although more expensive, are more spacious and the balconies of the upper floor r...

The first time I went to Barcelona, we stayed at a hotel on Las Ramblas and didn't sleep a wink because of all the noise. This time we elected to go to a quieter neighborhood. We weren't disappointed by U232. It's in an area called L'Eixample which is more of a residential area, but not deserted or boring. In fact, there are several nice restaraunts, bars and tapas bars within walking distance. Avenue Diagonal with all of its great shops and restaurants are within walking distance. And the metro stop is basically across the street - so it's very easy to get into town. My husband and I bought a 4-day metro pass for 23 Euros and had no problems getting around (Even to the FC Barca game!) The hotel itself is very boutique-y and chic. The rooms are modern with a comfortable bed and nice decor. The bathrooms are spacious with new fittings. We slept very well. Unfortunately we got a first floor room and would have preferred a room on the higher floor. But it was still great. There's a gym and a terrace. The bar is well-stocked (but closes at 11pm). The staff are very friendly and helpful. There were mostly middle-aged and older people at the hotel - not too many young backpackers. All in all, we really enjoyed our stay and would recommend this hotel to anyone.

Room Tip: Pick a higher floor.
