“great breakfast”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 June 2014

A very good hotel out of the centre of town so quite quiet, excellent breakfast and very comfortable beds and very clean rooms. The only downside is the dark interior and if you happen to have a room with no view it can feel very colaustrophobic! and very dark and no idea what the time or weather is. loved the roof terrace though. Also it can be quite a walk to find your dinner in the evening after an exhausting day sight seeing.

Room Tip: make sure you have a room with a window that has a view

This hotel located in the Le Eixample' neighborhood of Barcelona was perfect for our stay of ten days. We had a balcony and the metro was 2 blocks away. Not in the center of town but an easy 20 minute walk to the top of the Ramblas. The metro was easy to navigate so we took that around town. The staff was helpful and friendly with a lovely terrace on the roof for lounging. Comfortable bed and good shower. Plenty of room for two. Keep in mind the metro closes at different hours depending on the day so have taxi fare in case you are having late tapas in the Gotic area.

Room Tip: Request a balcony - not guaranteed. Good breakfast buffet.

While we read different opinions about U232. Ultimately we were delighted with our choice. Great location for exploring Barcelona and a lovely boutique hotel to rest and relax in at night! Definitely would recommend to any body who has doubts... Would definitely return.

I can't recommend the Hotel U232 high enough. The hotel is self had a warm and welcoming atmosphere, the staff were extremely accomodating, friendly and very knowledgable. Language was no barrier either.. The premises were always so clean and nothing was ever any trouble, whether it be giving directions or their local knowledge on attractions and how to get there.
10/10 from me.

Initially on arrival I thought perhaps I should have picked a hotel more central but there is a metro stop very close and it is a brilliant way to get around the city so don't be put off by the location. Metro is clean, easy to get around and cheap.
The staff were very helpful and friendly.
The room was lovely, modern and clean. The shower was great, an important feature of a hotel room for me, especially in a city after a long day seeing the sights. We had a little terrace out the back but hardly used it as the sun was on it in the morning and we were out exploring at those times.
We didn't have breakfast booked because we like to try out little cafes instead but tried it one morning and there was a wide choice of food.
It would have been good to have had a kettle and tea/coffee in the room but when I mentioned it to the staff at the end of my stay they said I should have asked for hot water and they would have provided it. It is something expected in UK hotel rooms and I was surprised that it wasn't mentioned on any reviews.
I would recommend this hotel to anyone that didn't mind being a little way out from the centre as travelling around the city is easy to do and it was pleasant at night to eat out in the local restaurants that weren't so crowded as those in the tourist hot spots.

This hotel felt like a 4 star hotel, sometimes when going over seas you might not get the same star quality as the US. However this hotel felt very modern, clean and well kept. The bed was extremely comfortable and the carpet smelled cleaned. The bathroom had a rain shower head and great preasure, the shampoo and body wash were just average though. The size of the room was nice for 2 people, plenty of walking room, lots of mirrors and a big bathroom (full size blow dryer). The closest Metro stop is Hospital Clinic, which is maybe a 10 minute walk. Near the hotel were a few spots for breakfast, lunch and dinner, we stopped at Dino Pan for breakfast everyday(I think was the name) 2 ham cheese crossaints and 2 sodas or coffee under 5 euro. Felt safe at night as well, since they were a few party spots 2 or 3 blocks away. Hotel is about 1.5 mile away from the Casa Mila and Casa Batllo, so you can walk it or just use the subway. I purchased our room using Hotwire for a 4 star L'Eixample- Passeig de Garcia Boutique Hotel, 95% rating, Ammenities included Free Internet, Business Center, Smoke Free Rooms and Pet Friendly.
