“Great position and nice staff (strange bathroom)”
Reviewed 22 May 2014

I spent a weekend in Barcelona in March and stayed in this Hotel.
The position is great, you can basically walk to every point of the city centre (Old Town and Eixample), well connected with Public Transport, a few meters from Catalunya Sq (where you can catch the shuttle bus to El Prat Airport), Universitat Metro but also to Passeig de Gracia, where you can catch regional trains if you want to visit the coast.
The Hotel structure is the typical 4 stars modern chain like NH, Novotel etc, so you are quite sure of the standard. The staff is very nice and friendly, more than I expected, and this is definitely a plus.
The only thing I did not appreciate in this hotel was the bathroom, it was actually inside the room, divided only by frosted glass, don’t’ take me wrong, the bathroom and shower were excellent and clean, it’s only you don’t feel a lot of privacy, so unless you stay there with someone you are really close to, it might make you feel a bit uncomfortable.
Apart from that, if I come back to Barcelona, I will surely come back to this hotel, also to enjoy the lovely terrace on the top floor.

Pretty much right on La Rambla next to Placa De Catalunya this is an excellent location. Next door there is restaurant Bacoa (alleged best burger bar in town - and yes, the burgers were good). Also, 2 min walk to metro and bars and shopping and open bus tours etc.

So perfect location - tick!

Our room was small but modern, clean, spacious bathroom and, free wifi.

Staff were friendly and greeted us with champagne - tick!

But the piece de resistance is the beautiful terrace bar on the roof over looking the city. Great vibe, great cocktails and, my girlfriend was very impressed with apparently how fit the bar men were!

We really enjoyed our stay in Barcelona. Next to the city and the sun we loved our stay in the H10 Universitat. The staff was really helpfull on every question we had. An absolute plus is the super roof terras to enjoy the view and a perfect mixed drink. Even after the roof bar was closed, the bartender showed us upstairs and provided us with a late night drink.

A full recommendation, we will return to this hotel. Location of the hotel as well is ideal to enjoy Barcelona, close to the old centre.

Centrally located and clean.. but in typical European style, the room is teensy-weensy by American standards.. Spacious bathroom though with all the usual toiletries.. lotion, shampoo, shaver, toothbrush, comb, robe, slippers, etc.. Friendly front desk staff although a couple of them could have been a bit more knowledgeable about area restaurants and tours. Good breakfast offered. All in all, I recommend.. especially if a central location is important to you.

Very nice hotel with clean and comfortable rooms, enormous bed, little coffee machine, good shower. Small bar on roof with excellent views. Staff helpful and knowledgeable. Plenty of inexpensive cafes around if you don't want hotel breakfast. The location was really convenient, close to where the airport bus stops, metro, etc, and a few minutes walk from the madness of Las Ramblas.

Room Tip: Room at the back of hotel was quiet all through the 3 nights we were there. Unusual for Spain. View...

Our stay at Universitat Hotel in Barcelona was great. The ladies at the front desk were polite, professional, and very helpful. The location is fine and within easy walking distance of the major points of interest, if you are inclined to do so. As with most hotel rooms in Europe, it was small but comfortable and clean. The shower was wonderful. The breakfast area was great and the breakfast selection was better than at the other hotels we stayed at on our trip. Would stay here again any time.

Room Tip: Ask for a room off the street as it is a major street and can be a little noisier.
