Great hotel with friendly helpful staff. Stayed with my sister and nephew in a triple room which had two bathrooms which came in handy. Breakfast has a good selection for all tastes. Nice area for restaurants and close to tourist bus route.

We have never stayed in a hotel this cheap and this wonderful. The breakfast buffet is only 10 euros and you have a great selection to chose from. The decoration is very cool, original and a breakthrough from the traditional hotels. It is a very modern hotel with an inviting lobby with nice sofas and a dimmed atmosphere. The reception staff is generally helpful and friendly. We had a room on the first floor, close to a nice resting area with tables and sofas where you can chill out. It is all wooden and with very nice finishings. The room itself is spacious, with a good bed and the bathroom is nice (all in black marble which is not necessarily the nicest one, but let's give them credit that they tried hard). The room has a big window with automatic courtains that black-out. So generally you can get a nice rest. And finally, you can get there very easily as it is like 5 min. walk from the subway station.

We stayed 5 nights in this hotel. The location was near the metro station and near the bus touristic stop. The black and brown colors in the rooms and bathroom was quite nice for us considering we like jazz theme and modern style.
The room was spacious, the closet was open which i don't fancy much, the shower was nice with two handles. Room service took for ever to get us our dinner but staff was helpful and kind.
I recommend U232 hotel and I am sure I will book it next time I am in Barcelona.

We booked at this hotel because of its good reviews and we got a good deal at the time of the booking. The hotel was close to the metro station which was handy and a short walk to one of the stops for the open top tourist buses. The hotel has a jazz theme going which might work for some people and myy wife quite liked it as well. I personally found it a bit dark however. Since it was September and technically summer season the aircon in our room was set to cooling mode and I sometimes found the room to be really cold because the aircon could either be switched on or off. There was no option of leaving it on and adjusting the temperature which was a little annoying. All in all though, the hotel was good.

We stayed here over the weekend of the Barcelona marathon. The location was great and the rooms were very well decorated if not a little small. The bathroom wall was transparent except where the toilet was located, so bear this in mind if sharing with somebody or showering with the curtain open. The bar was a little expensive but this is to be expected in a hotel like this. The library/computer room was nice and the whole hotel had a very elegant feel.

Located close to the Hospital Clinic metro station this hotel is ideally situated when arriving into Sants Estacio or Passeig de Gracia using the Airport train service; it is also ideal for reaching the main tourist areas of the city in 10-15 mins. We were quickly checked in by pleasant staff and found a room cooled by the easily controllable air conditioning and decorated in a contemporary style. The bathroom was of a good size and was kept consistently clean although I did find the shower slightly cramped as the bath was a little narrow. We used the downstairs bar on several occasions which was reasonably priced for a hotel as long as you stick to the draught beer and cocktail of the day list. We did not use the terrace but would have done had we been staying in the city longer. Overall a positive experience.

Room Tip: Choose a room that faces away from the busy Comte d'Urgell thoroughfare

You would miss it if you didn't know it tucked between two buildings ... Once we were inside we were nicely greeted and checked in, unfortunately we had to wait to get the room as we arrived early and the room was still occupied. the front desk was very helpful and suggested we rest in the lounge area while he places our luggage in the luggage room. the whole staff are very helpful and most converse in English. Our room was extremely nice. Although I felt the bed was divided and could have been a one king size bed but still it was comfy for the night ahead, the room spacious with a nice open closet (safe included); the bathroom has a bath tube which is a leisure treat after a long day walking Las Ramblas and Cataluña ... The hotel has free WIFI and a small business center were you can print (if needed) The breakfast is decent and very affordable (we added it later on; it has all the right ingredients to give you energy for the day and leave you full). the hotel is just a bloke away from the metro station (Hopital Clinic) and from there you can venture anywhere; although most Spaniards we encountered told us to walk, walk and walk. The hotel is surrounded by many bistros and cafes so its nice to venture about ... We were very glad we booked this hotel but I would have liked to see upon our check out some personal interaction and inquiry of how our stay was ...

Room Tip: We requested a balcony which provided us with a good view. Careful though that you will hear the amb...
