Grown-ups retreet
Stayed with my 12 year old son on Easter weekend, for a sight seeing adventure. Barcelona Universal Hotel was a great base camp. Located right above a Metro station, which in my opinion is the best way to travel longer distances around Barcelona. La Rambles and the Marina are in walking distance, Also the Magic Fountains are only two Metro stops away, which are a must. The Hotel was very smart and the room we had was fantastic. The outdoor space we had was amazing, however being on the 2nd floor at the back of the Hotel (in a built up area) we were over looked by shabby residential building and had no sunlight. But the space would be perfect for smokers. We chose the Hotel mainly because of the roof top pool, however this was closed during our stay so there was nothing at the hotel to keep my son entertained. My son loved the Hotel but in my opinion I feel its for the more mature guest.

Nice comfy stay!
Very clean, comfortable and location good enough as right in front of the metro station and easily walkable to La Rambla in 10 mins. Quiet location and loads of eateries and supermarkets around.
Really good. Would recommend this hotel for sure.
