This was a pleasant surprise for us. Nicely located, fairly modern with excellent service. We walked from there to Plaza Espanya rail station (2km) and caught the train to Montserrat. We would happily recommend this hotel.

We ve stayed 3 nights in this hotel and were very satisfied guests. Upon arriving we got a free room upgrade, so that was a first pleasant surprise. The room itself is comfortable, beds are good, bathroom a bit dated but nevertheless more than ok. The hotel is not situated in the center of Barcelona but the subway is just around the corner and you re just about 2/3 stops away from barcelona s most popular touristic sites.

Breakfast buffet is quite nice, everything you need is there and if you want somethi g extra you can order it (not for free of course). Staff is very helpful and friendly. We ve tried the gym, it is rather small, but again all you need for a cardio workout is there.

This is a good value for money hotel, undoubtedly there are better hotels in barcelona but u232 is a very good 4* hotel for a more than reasonable price.

Room Tip: We ve got the most interesting rates via the hotel website and saw that prices lowered the last week...

U232 was very much as described by other reviewers. Our room was at the back of the hotel, and the balcony view was of the back sides of other apt buildings in the block, which we did not find objectionable. A reviewer had mentioned previously that the shower was either too hot or too cold- I am happy to report that the water temp was very consistent, and the showers were wonderful. We were told that breakfast was 10 €/ person, so we tried out a couple of different local bakeries which were very satisfactory. A nice touch was the business center with 2 computers and a printer which we made use of since we did not bring a computer with us. Staff was helpful, and recommendations for meals were spot on, especially the tapas bar Maitea. Multiple bus routes within 1 - 3 blocks of the hotel with frequent service get you to tourist areas easily. A delightful four day stay prior to our cruise.

What a lovely little hotel in a good location. The service was good and the mojitos were the best I've ever had. I would definitely return. Good restaurants, shopping and transportation options within a few blocks. Loved the decor and rooftop terrace.

We loved the hotel. We booked a Top Room and it was beautiful, large with a grand terrace, nice visits and the price was terrific. Breakfast at the hotel was a bargain and rather good. The staff were great and very helpful, especially with restaurants, of which there are many wonderful ones right nearby. We had a minor glitch with payment, but nothing to worry about. Overall, it was a terrific 5 nights.

Room Tip: The Top Rooms are great and a bargain, as is much of Barcelona.

This is a really nice and afordable hotel in a very centric location. We used to live a few blocks from its location so we knew that would be fine although not in the main touristic streets. Excellent transportation options from here as well. We booked the cheapest room on offer an it was excellent. Really comfortable king size bed, beautifully decorated, everything looked almost new, and a really nice bathroom with an amazing large shower. The front desk service was very friendly and attended a couple of our request always promptly and with a smile. We never had breakfast there as we prefer to enjoy the many offerings of Barcelona's bakeries so we can't comment on that. We will definitely be back on future visits.

Room Tip: The hotel is by a major street with heavy traffic. If you want a quiet room I would recommend you re...

As others have mentioned, this is a modern, stylish hotel, about 15 minutes walk from Sants railway station (so ideal if you're wanting to do a day trip out to Sitges or further). Our room was quite gorgeous and its brown tones reminded us of a luxurious chocolate box. It was quiet, but overlooked a not so nice courtyard, so we didn't really use the balcony we'd paid a bit extra for.

The staff were very friendly and were more than happy to give us directions and restaurant recommendations.

The price is excellent: €117 per night. We didn't pay the extra for breakfast as there are plenty of breakfast options in the area.

If you like gelato, don't miss the Cremería Toscana, a few minutes walk away at Carrer de Muntaner 161.

Room Tip: If you want to pay a bit more for the balcony, then ask for one on the street side. The courtyard is...
