The hotel is located in a very nice and affuent area of the city and is a 3 minute walk away from the nearest Metro station which is an excellent way to see the city. Booked online through the hotel website which was the cheapest way. Arrived at 2.30pm room was ready, very modern and had a small balcony. Rooms cleaned daily to a high standard. There are some excellent restaurants and bars nearby so if you enjoy good food and drink at the end of a long day sightseeing this is a great hotel.

I booked this hotel online for 2 nights for our last two evenings in Spain. When we arrived (at 2:00 p.m) we were told that a room wasn't ready yet, however, the receptionist stored our luggage and took our cell phone number, promising to call us when a room became available. No problem - we left and had lunch. We returned to the hotel at 3:15 p.m. (check-in time is 3:00 o'clock), only to be told that a room still wasn't available, but if we sat in the lobby she would call us in what she hoped would be just a few minutes. We sat in the lobby for 30 minutes, by which time I was getting a bit annoyed as it was now nearly 4:00 o'clock. I approached the desk again - the receptionist has forgotten we were waiting!! Anyway, we get to our room which was clean, modern and beautifully decorated. There was very little closet space and the bathrooms were small but functional. Big flat screen television and free wifi. The bed was king size and very, very comfortable. We did not have breakfast in the hotel as we thought it was a bit expensive considering we could walk out the door to many cafes.

The lobby of this hotel is beautiful - all black and white and has a lovely ambiance. I would recommend this hotel for short stays, but the lack of closet space would make it too uncomfortable for long stays.

The hotel is very contemporary, clean and modern. Hotel staff was super helpful and friendly. One of the nicest hotel we stayed in on our 7 cities, 5 countries vacation. If we go back, we would definitely stay here again.

Just returned from Barcelona and would recommend a visit in November as weather perfect for sightseeing.Hotel staff were very friendly and the hotel immaculate and very modern.The entire hotel decor was black, white and mustard and we had the added benefit of a balcony which we would recommend. Breakfast was great and available from 7 until 11.Hotel which has free internet access is very centrally located as the metro is a very short walk away.Public transport is first class and at no point did we have to wait more than three mins for the metro.Would highly recommend this hotel.

Room Tip: Some rooms are interior and therefore have no natural light. Would recommend a balcony room as it wa...

Just home Nov 2012 from Barcelona. Perfect time of year for experiencing this facinating and beautiful city from the U232 Hotel.An immaculate, modern, clean masterpiece of modern interior design. Matt black, marble, golden brown and crisp white at its best. Friendly staff and an excellent city location. Highly recommended.

Room Tip: The balconies are very pleasant to take in the bustllng atmosphere of this great city.

U232 Hotel Barcelona is comfortable and safe-away from the tourist area hotels. Staff was friendly and helpful. Our triple room had 2 bathrooms so that really helped us get ready each day. Their lounge was cozy and convenient. My only suggestion would be to have the lounge close a little later. When I return to Barcelona I would definitely stay at U232 again.
