U232 Hotel

Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 10 September 2012

The U232 is a beautiful hotel. We really enjoyed our stay. The hotel decor of black and beige is quite chic. I liked the club feel of the lobby. The bar had the best sangria. The rooftop area was a great place to relax. Even though the hotel is a few minutes away from "the action", we were able to use the subway (less than 2 blocks away) or utilize taxis, which are relatively inexpensive compared to other large metropolitan cites. There were also good restaurants close by.

Now as good as this hotel was, and it was really good, the customer service was nothing short of fabulous. My hats off to the entire team as they made us feel very welcome. Each time we walked in the door we were greeted with an "Hola". They gave us wonderful recommendations for meals. We received an overview of the subway system along with directions on how to get wherever we wanted to go.

A special thank you to Crystina and team for their patience and wonderful customer service. Staying at the U232 was truly the best part of our trip to Spain.
I highly recommend this hotel.

We again booked direct through the Hotels web site and received quick confirmation. We requested the same room as last year and this was arranged albeit next door room 112. It’s on the first floor no need for the lift, a basic room but clean large and comfortable. More details on our previous review. We paid 99E per night for a three night stay more than last year but still good value. We did not have breakfast, the cost 10E each. There is a multitude of cafes nearby coffee and a pastry for two costs around E5.50. We enjoy the Hotel as its quiet, close to the metro, about 2 minutes and great restaurants within a five minutes’ walk. It’s a non touristy area and you mix with the locals. We particularly enjoyed the tapas and meal at Maitea Taberna 157 Casanova and also at Paco Meralgo, 171 Muntaner. Both highly recommended and very reasonably priced, under 60E for two including wine. The sun terrace on the roof is a pleasant relief for a half an hours rest. We will book again when next in Barcelona.
Another positive the staff this year where friendly and helpful.

Another great stay! Arrived at 10pm on a Friday and front desk were super friendly & helpful. We were very lucky and upgraded to the top room which had a large terrace and huge bathroom with whirlpool bath.....just what you need after a day of walking!

The hotel is spotless & housekeeping did a great job. The room room decor was chic and the bed so comfy!! We really enjoyed our stay & the restaurant recommendation was totally delicious. Although the hotel is not in the centre of town the metro station is close and we enjoy being off the tourist trail.

Another great stay, thanks U232.....we will be back again!

We stayed 2 nights at the U232 before our Mediterranean cruise from Barcelona. This hotel was perfectly suited to our needs, and was very comfortable. The front desk staff is top-notch, and had immediate answers to all of our questions. (They even saved us a couple of Euros by suggesting that we hail a cab on the street...if you call for one, there is a surcharge!)

The hotel is in the quieter Exiample section of town. Yes, it's not in very close proximity to the main sights of Barcelona, but the hotel is less than a 5 minute walk to the "Hospital Clinic" metro station. We found the Barcelona metro to be one of the best in the world, providing access to all the city's sights in a matter of minutes. Buy a T-10 pass for the best value.

There are many food/drink options nearby...most of them we did not use, although we absolutely loved eating breakfast at the little "Dino Pan" store right up the block. Best coffee and croissiants ever!

Bottom line...we really enjoyed our stay in Barcelona and at the U232...we highly reccomend it!
