“Wonderfully superb hotel!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 11, 2014

We visited the hotel on the 7th March 2014 and stayed for 3 nights and I have nothing but praise for the hotel and it's staff. The room (610) was spacious and very clean and the bathroom was of a good size and spotless. The beds were comfy, sheets crisp and clean and there were enough pillows. The mini bar had a decent selection of drinks and you don't have to take out a second mortgage to pay for them. The only thing that I would say is that tea & coffee making facilities and an air conditioning unit that can cool below 19C would be a welcome addition to the room.
The staff were approachable, friendly and warm. I have mention the check-in clark (a bearded young man - Carlos I believe) who was very helpful and did his job very, very well.
The location of the hotel is in a residential area, 1 block from the metro, on the same street is a stop for the city tour so an excellent location. It is however not near any of the sights but the quality that the hotel offers makes it all worth while. Taxi's are inexpensive in Barcelona so if you miss the last metro there's no need to worry about the cost (€6 for an average 15 minute journey). I would be very happy to stay at the U232 again and again.

Room Tip: Do make sure you request a room with a window as there are some without.

5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 9, 2014

Stayed here last week. The hotel is lovely, staff are pleasant and will give any advice on places to go too or restaurants to eat at. The location of the hotel is perfect, your only 150m from the nearest metro, which will bring you to any part of the city that you want to go. The staff told us of a great tapas bar to Vist, which turned out to be a super night out, great food and drink with the locals. I would recommend this hotel to my best friend. When we go back this is the hotel I'll go too!

Room Tip: Book room on the high floors for great sleep, no road traffic noise

Location - Very good. Don't understand when people moan about not being near the centre. It's a large city. Where is the centre exactly? The bottom line is it's a three minute walk from the metro which will get you anywhere in Barcelona in 10 minutes. Easy.

Neighbourhood - No problems. Seemed quiet for such a large city apart from car horns and police sirens of coarse, but what do you expect.

Hotel - Clean, modern.

Customer Service - To be frank only dealt with them at check in and out but no problems at all.

Room - We stayed in one of the more expensive rooms on the top floor. Well worth the money (still well well cheaper than equivalent London hotel). Spacious and clean. Had a great view, huge terrace, massive bath, double 'rainfall' shower, and huge bed. It was all lovely and was enjoyable to go back to after a hard days sight seeing.

Summary - So can't fault it really. Had a great time in Barcelona, can't wait to come back and if/when we do it'll be back to this hotel again.

We stayed in one of the top rooms, 910 located one the very top floor. Everything was perfect, a slight minus was that we were neighbours to the gymnasium. But hardly anyone used it, so for the most part it was not a nuisance. The neighbourhood is nice with many restaurants and small shops. Would definitely stay there again for our next visit in Barcelona.

Room Tip: top rooms are lovely.

I spend one night on business trip to Barcelona on this excellent hotel. The facilities were new, the room had balcony and overall quality impression was good. The breakfast and service were excellent. The hotel is nicely located close to metrostop "hospital clinic" and provides ease of access to all parts of Barcelona.

Room Tip: Top floor has nice terace and relaxation.

Spent 4 nights here, excellent room, we had 909 on the 10th floor. Great terrace. Excellent room, and amenities. Excellent wet room/bathroom, pay the extra for this room and you will not be disappointed. Staff very helpful. Excellent breakfast. For once there are 2 chairs in the room, and a great size desk, there are also 2 sofas. A kettle to make a cup of tea/coffee.

Room Tip: 909 on the 10th floor was wonderful, very quiet and great terrace with a table, 2 chairs and 2 deck...
