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.
