A Chic Trip to Barcelona
U232 is a 4-star hotel located in Barcelona minutes away from the busy Avinguda Diagonal. I would describe the hotel as retro chic with its black and white décor. As you enter the building immediately the reception and bar area can be seen, creating a welcoming atmosphere. The staff at the hotel are very courteous and helpful. You can get a map of the city from the receptionist who is also able to provide you with help and directions for finding your way around the city.

This hotel is only 20 minutes away from the airport and is close to various subway stations for the Metro. The shops located on Avinguda Diagonal are only a 10 minute walk away. These shops include the department store El Corte Ingles and many fashion shops such as Promod, Mango and Zara.

The rooms are very nice with stylish ensuite bathrooms. However, I would recommend that if you prefer a well lit room with a window then definitely specify this at the time of booking, our room had a small widow leading to the courtyard and this didn't really provide much light. The rooms include a minibar, safe, hairdryer, Wi-Fi internet access and some complimentary toiletries. Room service is available, information for this including the menu, availability times and prices can be found in the room guide. If you do order tea then be sure to specify that you want milk with it, I discovered in Barcelona that this isn't something that automatically comes with a hot beverage.

A buffet breakfast service is available, details on how to book this can be found on the hotel website. The restaurant area where the breakfast is served has a really calming environment perfect for those early start mornings. As part of the breakfast buffet service the waiter offered to make a fresh pot of filtered coffee, which I would highly recommend as it was delicious.

The hotel has a terrace area with a view of Mount Tibidabo. There is a Catholic church, Temple de Sagrat Cor, on top of the mountain and in the evening there is a great view of the lit up building.
