          Historical Traveler Reviews U232 Hotel Barcelona

          Loved the hotel, loved the city


          Although I can see why this hotel isn't ideally situated for many tourists, I happened to find the location more than agreeable. Yes, there are many hotels closer to the Ramblas and Tourist areas of Town, but we walked into & back from town every day & night without too much trouble ( and i would not class myself as very fit). The location is also central for walking to the Nou Camp and the Park, both of which are a 30-40min stroll.

          The hotel itself was very clean with a great decor. Everything worked and I would not hesitate to recommend to anyone staying for more than a couple of nights.

          I Liked It


          I stayed at this hotel in June, 2004. I stayed in a double room for 1 person. The room was very well appointed, however, the bed was pushed up against a wall and there was just about enough room to get around the other side to the bathroom and closet. It was an internal room so it was nice and quiet for afternoon naps. The location was good - near to the metro and far enough away from the tacky ramblas [why do all the tourists congregate there - it's a mystery to me]. Near to excellent restaurants - you will find that you need some spanish to understand menus etc though. Nice hotel - would stay again if they could gurantee me a bigger room.



          Just stayed for 2 nights with some friends, hotel was extremely clean, rooms lovely and welcoming, beds comfortable, air conditioning a must, but most of all the staff were brilliant, we did not know where to go to eat and drink etc so they gave us a list of places to go which were all excellent, SO, Thanks For A Lovely Stay!!

          Nunez Urgell a wise Choice


          I stayed at the Nunez Urgell from 1st to 7th. June 2004. For me it turned out to be a wise choice. I obtained a good rate through trip advisor. I was impressed with the efficiency or the hotel and the quality of the rooms.

          I was also very impressed with the two high speed computors available at no charge.

          The neighbourhood was clean and quite secure, if not exciting, and certainly not as tacky as the Ramblas area about which I heard many complaints. It was convenient to a number of interesting reasonably priced restaurants and easily accesibly to most tourist attractions.

          I would certainly stay there again.

          Nice hotel


          I loved this hotel even though I know it is not a five stars choice. The only problem with the hotel is that you really need to use the tube in order to reach the central part of Barcellona. There is a tube station one block away. If you prefer to be closer to the "Rambla", choose another place.

          Besides all that the hotel is very nice. Rooms are large and clean, very nice bathrooms, great breakfast, friendly staff. There are no restaurants in the hotel.

          A good value for the money


          We really appreciated Nunez Urgell for what it is; clean, very attractive, and well located with a great breakfast room, bar and meeting rooms. The hotel isnot located in a tourist distirct and is not oriented to tourists' needs. Rather, it is a hotel that caters to business activities and domestic travellers. If you don't speak Spanish very well, you may have difficulties getting your needs understood and satisfied. However, we were very happy with Nunez Urgell and would have no hestitation in staying there again.

          Barcelona is a great city


          The hotel nunez urgell hotel is in a good location about 20mins walk to the centre or 5 mins by taxi- cheap fares. The hotel is reasonably priced ,very clean ,polite staff, great breakfast. Our room was quit and a very good size. I would recommend it. Don't stay in room 101 , cramped and beside the laundry!

          Not what it indicated to be


          When we booked the Nunez, we were led to believe that it had: 1. A guest laundromat (turned out to be a laundry service for an exorbitant price-no washer machine or dryer on the premises), 2. Currency exchange on the premises (currency exchange was actually down the block and was opened only certain hours, 3. A pool and fitness center located 100 meters away free of charge (the distance was correct, however there was a 3.50euro charge per day and the pool was an olympic pool with lanes, not making it conducive to the average amateur swimmer, 4. There were no bathrobes in the rooms, 5. Although there was 220 wiring, the outlets did not fit our curling irons, clock radioes, or camcorder battery rechargers with one prong that is wider than the other, 6. Some of the staff were polite-we had several messages left for us by our friends and relatives, yet when we asked the desk if there were any messages, we were answered with a rather curt "NO". My advice is to call the hotel to determine exactly what it offers. My advice is also to speak in Spanish, as the staff does not have much patience for the english speaking tourist, which appeared to be common among many of Barcelona's residents. On the positive side, the housekeeping staff did an excellent job of keeping our room very clean. The hotel's location is good, as it is within 10 minutes by taxi to all the major attractions. I would however not stay there again, because of the barely tolerated to "us" atmosphere.

Full orchestra, full choir + student choir and 3 opera singers. Fantastic acoustics. We had great seats in the front row of the first balcony.

          crew Philipino so all very sweet. As it's another overnighter, we have our own cabin. After dinner we have a look at the disco! A few teenage girls & a couple of middle aged chaps....we leave. Off to the games room! Jacob & I play air guitar. Really fun! Obviously J has spent 100's of hours perfecting his skill, & is proficient!

          Back to cabin then wake up to Sardinia! ...

          ... but one annoying thing about eating anywhere touristy is how pushy the outside waiters are. Neither Brittany and I are big seafood eaters so a lot of the pre-fix menus are tricky. We actually ended up in an "irish pub" called temple bar. We decided we would eat some snacky things and aim for more Spanish food tomorrow. After all we have a good 2 weeks! While we were eating we made friends with ...

          There were no seats free, so we had to stand, but surely people would get off and we could get seats? No. It was one of those odd things, that at every stop, more people crowded on, but nobody got off. How long could this go on for?

          Almost all the way, apparently, until an old couple shuffled forward from the back of the bus and I sank into a seat. I am not good at standing for ...
