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.
