As others have mentioned, this is a modern, stylish hotel, about 15 minutes walk from Sants railway station (so ideal if you're wanting to do a day trip out to Sitges or further). Our room was quite gorgeous and its brown tones reminded us of a luxurious chocolate box. It was quiet, but overlooked a not so nice courtyard, so we didn't really use the balcony we'd paid a bit extra for.

The staff were very friendly and were more than happy to give us directions and restaurant recommendations.

The price is excellent: €117 per night. We didn't pay the extra for breakfast as there are plenty of breakfast options in the area.

If you like gelato, don't miss the Cremería Toscana, a few minutes walk away at Carrer de Muntaner 161.

Room Tip: If you want to pay a bit more for the balcony, then ask for one on the street side. The courtyard is...

Booked this hotel via the web and have been truly delighted with the stay.....staff so very friendly and helpful, suggesting nearby restaurants that are superb! Maitea is a local tapas restaurant that is fabulous...reasonable prices, fresh, authentic Spanish tapas..... Manuel at the front desk is the best- really helpful!

The rooms here are great- very comfortable mattresses, nice balcony, up to date amenities, strong wifi signal and easily accessible location to metro, main streets, shops, restaurants- what's not to like? Would definitely stay here again on next trip to Barcelona.

This town has so much to offer and U232 makes it a great place to stay!

We had stayed in their sister hotel the b hotel which we loved and so were looking forward to here. Very disappointing. Booked direct with hotel staying 4 nights. Our bathroom complimentaries were never replaced on any of the days! The bed linen especially the covers looked very old and frayed. Wifi wasn't working and they said they would send maintenance to look at it never did and wasn't restored for 7 hours. And finally on our day to check out, we got a call at 12.30 to say check out was 12.00. We were just finishing packing and said we would be down in 5 minutes. Got a reply that we needed to come down immediately as there were people waiting for our room. When we got down surprise surprise no one was at reception to check in. After staying 4 days it left a bad taste. As frequent visitors to Barcelona, wouldn't recommend coming back here.

Dear U232 guest,

Thank you for your feedback regarding your recent stay at Hotel U232. I sincerely regret your disappointment with our property, specially after having enjoyed our sister property, B Hotel, so much. I can only apologize for the many inconveniences you mention, but rest assured, as confirmed by the many positive reviews from other clients, they are isolated incidents and not an example of our operating procedures and service standards.

If your future travel plans bring you back to Barcelona and you are willing to give us a second opportunity, please contact me directly at apareja@nnhotels.com, so I can handle your reservation.

Best regards from Barcelona,

Ms. Asun Pareja

This is a nice, clean and stylish hotel in the Eixample residential area of Barcelona. The Metro is just a block away. Enjoyed a room with nice balcony facing the inner court, where we could enjoy the warm Catalonian nights. Friendly staff, efficient room service, good breakfast. Nice roof terrace and a small but sufficient gym. Everything is very modern, well designed and stylish. The romantic package included a bottle of cava as well as dinner at a nearby restaurant The Office. We had no expectations for the restaurant but it proved to be very good - not just the food, but also nice ambience with a lot of locals enjoying the night.

All in all, a good hotel and good value for the price.

Great little hotel, I was concerned about the location having read some reviews however the Metro stop is a few minutes walk and requires one change at diagonal to get to las rambles. Whilst we were there the weather was hot so we took advantage of the terrace on floor 10. There are lots of little cafés to get coffee and croissant in the morning, there is a supermarket turn right out of the hotel and right again and you will see it. I would recommend taking a bus tour you can get on the red route which is four blocks up form the hotel (ask at reception they will direct you) this is a great way of getting your bearings. I did think the hotel was quite expensive however it was really nice! My only complaint is we had to pay a tourist tax on departure which we did not know about, but it is in the small print!!!!! It was only 8 euros though!!!! Ooh having read about the noise was a little concerned as I am not a great sleeper, however managed to sleep 12 hours the first night and 10 the second not sure if it was due to exhaustion or the massive bed and very dark room.

My husband and I decided to stay at this great hotel after reading lots of reviews and we were very happy with our choice. Lots of great places to eat and the metro was near by. The hotel was very clean and very comfortable and the service was great. I would stay here again. Internet was great to have. Enjoy your stay at U232.

We got our reservation at a reduced rate so feel it was very good value. Huge bed, good sized room on first floor just above parking garage. Very quiet. Small terrace with no view. Fabulous shower! So close to the metro and with on walking distance to El born, Gotic, Ramblas, and fabulous shopping in between. Excellent restaurants within two blocks. We always felt safe walking around the area. The only unfortunate incident was one we saw as three thieves followed us into the hotel, distracted the desk clerk and pinched a guests phone from her bag as she sat in the bar lounge area. This is not a negative indictment on the hotel as they immediately knew what was going on and told the men to leave. But it was such a quick, slick and brazen operation that it was all over in 30 seconds. We had read all the warnings of pickpockets and were ultra careful but were very surprised to see it unfold in a good hotel. Be vigilant everywhere. We would definitely recommend u232.
