      Historical Traveler Reviews U232 Hotel Barcelona

      Loved the hotel, loved the city

      from

      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

      from

      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.

      Excellent

      from

      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

      from

      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

      from

      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

      from

      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

      from

      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

      from

      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.

      ... Pyrenean-Paradore-trifecta and this version was probably marginally of lesser standard and the town just didn't have the immediate appeal of the other places we've visited. It could also be that after three in-and-out one-night stands, a fourth was probably one too many.

      Though we did find the town did rise in our estimation today after we wandered into the central area for a relaxed breaky only to find the narrow streets alive with a bustling market. It seems ...

      A travel blog entry by emmadahlen on Nov 06, 2013

      In the summer I took a magnificent trip to Barcelona. It was probably the best trip of my life. Everything there was so artsy and beautiful. I am an artsy person and I am convinced that I will die there. I loved the friendliness of the people there. They are so neighborly. I think that the tourist places are absolutely beautiful. La Sagrada Familia was the prettiest church I have ever seen in my life. The second I walked ...
