“Boutique Hotel.”
Reviewed 4 September 2013

This is a boutique hotel located close to Plaza Catulunya. However there is another H10 hotel right on the plaza and we initially went there to check in. This particular H10 is located on the street leading from Plaza Catalunya onto Plaza Universtat on the right hand.

Pros.

1. Located very centrally right in the centre of Barcelona making going places very easy
2. There are Tourist hop on Hop off buses and Airport buses which can be caught from the Plaza and you can travel to most of touristic Barcelona
3. The rooms are well appointed with clean bathrooms.
4. There is a facility to ask for Tea/Coffee and Kettle in your room though it it not provided initially
5. The breakfast buffet is reasonable with a good selection of hot and cold food.

Cons
1. Though Wifi is free it is unreliable and very slow
2. The rooms are very small

I was very pleased with my room which had a small balcony overlooking the Main Street looking up towards Las Ramblas - the rooftop bar was very nice and relaxing.

I would stay here again in a flash......just need the cash!

If you are looking for a very nice hotel close to la Ramblas and Plaza Catalonya, then this is it. We found this hotel on Tripadvisor and it lived up to its recommendations. Good location. Friendly and helpful staff. Nice terrace bar with a view. Nice clean rooms. I easily recommend this hotel to all.

Was in barcelona from the 16th to the 22nd of Aug, 2013. Stayed at the H10 Universitat.
The check in was easy and the staff were cordial . i had emailed and informed them in advance that i would be arrive by 3 PM and to hold the room till then. The room was small...but very neat and clean.
The most amazing part of the hotel was its fabulous location. Once you exit you are bang on Ras Lamblas and then Catuluniya...were all the major shops and designers are located. We walked to the port, we walked everywhere as the hotel was at such a brilliant location.
Just for its location i might stay there again...other wise it was like any other 3-4 star hotel.

Room Tip: Great Location and a clean Hotel

Quiet hotel despite being just one block from one end of La Rambla. The staff were courteous and spoke decent english. We paid a few extra bucks for the "romantic getaway" option, which came with a continental breakfast, nice bottle of prosecco, and chocolate-covered strawberries - tasty! No real dinner option in the hotel, but there was a hopping bar on the roof, and plenty of places to eat within a block or two. The beds were comfortable, and they had no problems putting our kids in a connecting room.

I think I spent a solid weekend scouring Trip Advisor trying to find the perfect hotel in Barcelona for my price range. I landed on H10 Universitat as a modern, upscale option with a great balcony. Overall, it met all of those expectations. The balcony is not huge- roughly 6 tables?- but there is a bartender, good drinks, and a decent view of the city. The balcony is equipped with very comfortable chairs for lounging in the sun.

The room was very clean and very nice. The downside is that it was absolutely tiny. There was no place to put a suitcase. There was a small closet and a safe so you could hang the important stuff and leave the suitcase zipped up in the corner, but the size was the biggest limitation. The window also just had a view of the side of a building- nothing fancy. We thought we upgraded to the next size up in room, but it was so tiny that I don't believe the reception staff that assured us we were in the right room. Generally the reception staff didn't win me over- they answered all my questions and helped with directions, but were not overly friendly or helpful. Not a big deterrent though.

When you check in they have cava for you in the lobby to jump start your stay. There are computers in the lobby you can use with internet, plus there are wifi slips that they will print for you so you have internet in your room.

The bathroom was nice- plenty modern.

The location was very good. The crepe store across the street was a great way to start my mornings, and it is a half block from a main plaza (Las Ramblas shoots off of this main area). As a tourist, it's a decent location to see most of the main sites- head south for Las Ramblas, head north/north east for your Gaudi fix. From the main plaza you can also catch a bus to Park Guell which is a must see (bring a picnic lunch!). Ask the reception for the bus number (go to the far end of the plaza by the department store, somewhat close to where the airport bus is, but at a different stand).

If you want a clean, pretty, safe place to crash, it's great. Extra bonus with the rooftop. If you plan to spend much time at the hotel get a bigger room or look elsewhere.

Room Tip: Upgrade to a bigger room plus see if there is a view available.

This was our last stop on our trip. We had stayed in a hostel, an apartment and lastly this hotel. The hotel and the staff were great. They were very patient and nice to answer all of our questions and our check in was easy after getting to the hotel around 1 am. This hotel is in the center of the city but if you were looking to go to the beach, it is a bit of a walk. After all the touring we had done, it was on the long side for us. It was a cheap cab ride to the beach so we didn't mind. The breakfast was really good but my favorite part was the roof deck bar. We bought a couple of bottles of wine and bought it up to the patio before the bar opened. When the bar opened they made tasty drinks...loved the mojitos! Also, the prices were great. House wine was only 3 euro and it was pretty good!

My friend and I stayed in a room with only a double bed. This was a tight squeeze. We were fine but don't think I could have spent an entire week in this room. I would suggest getting the bigger room with 2 double beds simply for the space.

Overall we had a pleasant stay at this hotel.
