“Nice and quiet”
Reviewed 22 March 2011

We stayed in the U232 for 3 nights. The hotel is very clena and nicely decorated if a bit dark but it adds to the atmosphere. The service at the front desk was very good, staff very helpful.
The rooms are a good size and on par with the decor inthe lobby, flat screen tv with a bit of a dodgy signal on international channel. Bathroom was great, you could spend hours in the big shower. We stayed in room 307 which is at the back and there was no noise whatsoever, no view either though.
The Hotel is very close to the Hospital Clinic metro stop which is great but as this particular line runs west to east you need to change at the next stop to head down to the main city part. No biggy though. The metro is great and a single is €1.45.

As in many spanish hotels, breakfast in not included, it's an extra €14 in the U232 hotel which is crazy. We had all our breakfasts in the little student packed cafe called Dino Pane, cafe con leche with 2 croissants is only €2.10!
The bar in the hotel is very dear too, stay away from as there are plenty of bar (with a terrace) to choose from in the vicinity.

I have just finished a stay at the U232, and was not impressed with the hotel. The location was great for me, being next to the medical center, but that was the only great thing about this hotel.
The upkeep on the hotel is poor. The shower leaks all over the floor due to poor design and upkeep.
I needed to press several shirts for meeting but was told that irons are not available here. The front desk said I needed to have it sent down the day before, not possible for business travelers staying a day or two.
The staff was not helpful with my concerns during my stay, even with the few things that I did require.

My friend and I stayed at U232 last weekend and loved it, and the price we paid for it.

The location was fantastic - it was easy to walk to most of the places we wanted to see or we took a quick cab ride. There is a metro stop close to the hotel too.

The rooms were extremely clean and nicely decorated. We found the beds very comfortable and the shower actually had good pressure (unusual for Europe!).

Finally, the staff was very helpful. They offered us great restaurant suggestions and took care of our every need.

U232 is in a residential area of Barcelona. There are good cafes nearby for lunch and breakfast & I don't think breakfast is of good value in U232 (14 euros per person).
Hotel rooms were good, bathrooms were very nice. No tea & coffee making facility and there is no provision of kettle, etc.
Reception staff was brilliant. Hotel is well connected with public transport therefore you can go out late in the night.
Would stay again!

Booked this based upon TripAdvisor Reviews, and must say, was quite disappointed. Let's start with the good stuff: staff are very helpful and pleasant; the place is impeccably clean; aircon works perfectly. The not so good stuff: the rooms are tiny (you could not swing a cat in them) and our rooms (206 and 306) had no views whatsoever. The bathrooms are incredibly small. The rooms we had were next to the lifts, and were very noisy. The location is not as good as many make out: it is 20 minutes' walk to the centre, or a tube journey that involes changes. Best to take a taxi when leaving this place. Breakfast was average but on the positive side, served,in a clean room and by very polite staff. Stay here if you can handle shoe box rooms, and if you are on a budget. If not, stay somewhere else.

My title says it all. It is a cool little hotel with nice rooms and wifi, i'd spring for the u232 rooms. The front desk guys were money and always had the solid dinner recommendations in the neighborhood. As everyone said it is a four minute stroll to the subway stop (Hospital Clinic is its name), but it is on the blue line, so you will have to change trains to get to/from the Ramblas, Beach, El Born, Park Guell or the Train Station that goes out to Monserrat. It is the right line to the airport train and Sagrada Familia though. I'd stay here again unless I could find a comperable price closer. That's my take! You could do a lot worse.

I stayed here with my boyfriend on our recent trip to Barcelona. I picked the hotel based on the previous reviews of the place and I was disappointed. My initial impression was very good. The hotel is lovely and the staff were friendly and helpful. I had specifically requested a quiet room and the first night there was fine. The second morning we were there we were woken up by workers in the hotel. There was building work going on which started very early. I was not happy about this at all considering we had requested a quiet room. On top of that when we returned back to the hotel room that evening we discovered that the glasses in the room had not been cleaned or replaced, nor had some of the toiletries in the bathroom, the mini bar had not been restocked either. I made the reception staff aware of the faults with the cleanliness of the room and this was rectified, however nothing was done about the noise! We were offered an alternative room on the night before we checked out. Overall, the hotel was pleasant but considering the price we paid, I was disappointed. Good location though!
