Exceptional”

We have just returned from 3 night 4 day stay at Barcelona Universal. On arrival 10.30 we were able to book in which saved time later we left our luggage in baggage room and was then able to explore Barcelona without having to carry luggage. Great location easily walkable to La Rambla and the marina. The only downside was having to walk past a lot of homeless people hanging around the streets. Our room was spotless, clean sheets and towels every day. The grout around the bath could do with being touched up but that was a minor gripe. The outlook from our bedroom window was someones washing in the apartment opposite but you don't go to Barcelona to sit in your room looking out of your window. Reception staff were very helpful and always keen to help. I would recommend staying at Barcelona Universal.

Amazing stay!”

We started our 18 day honeymoon in Barcelona, and stayed at the Universal Hotel for 3 nights. They treated us SO well, and upgraded our room to an AMAZING suite that I can't recommend enough. The city view was fantastic and I loved how spacious it was. I made some booking errors, and the desk helped us keep the same room for our last minute extra night. The pizza across the street is great! The night life around the hotel was interesting... and a little daunting for someone not from a big city. The location other than the night life was all right. We could walk to La Rambla. Hotel itself though... I'm currently on day 12 of our Honeymoon and the other hotels we've been booking have been NOTHING like our first love, the Universal Hotel.

Barcelona be aware of your bags”

This place is perfectly located next to the purple / green metro line. You can get to all the sites by metro if you know the stops. Ask the staff. More importantly you can metro to the Sants Estacion, the train station. The area is eclectic and has obvious police strolling and patrolling area. In all of Barcelona watch your bag. Pick pockets are everywhere. I was in the church and a lady asked me to take a photo of her immediately as I entered. As I was adjusting my bag I caught the pick pockets hand half in my purse. If we weren’t in the church I would have broke his fingers. I made a big scene and he and his female partner exited the church. I told the staff as he was walking out and they said they are not the police and there are many thief’s in Barcelona. I said maybe they want to at least see who was preying in the people coming to church but so be aware they don’t care. Don’t let this keep you from visiting Barcelona is amazing. Toledo is more amazing!!!

This hotel deserves a 5 star due to its staff”

Enjoyed our stay at this hotel in Barcelona and couldn’t have been better. - Excellent location- 10 to 15 minutes to La Ramblas, right infront of McDonalds and Subway and one of the best restaurants I’ve been to (Antic Cafe), next to several supermarkets and clothes shops (including Carrefour express) - If you want to reach any place in Barcelona cheaply you could use the metro right infront of the hotel or use the bus on the other side of the road. I would recommend to buy 10€ ticket of 10 rides either by bus or metro. - The best thing about the hotel is its staff. They were really helpful in telling us the places to visit in Barcelona and how to reach them by metro or bus using the hotel map which was extremely helpful. MANY THANKS TO MR SERGI AND ALL THE STAFF!! They made the hotel feel more than a 5 stars and I haven’t found such welcomes staff like that in any hotel in the countries I have visited. Further to that, they gave my baby boy a balloon every time they see us. Really don’t know how to thank them! - Very rich breakfast buffet with a lot of choices and great drinks - Beautiful panoramic pool and rooftop to enjoy with a great bar to enjoy all sort of drinks and cocktails. P.S. Don’t forget to reserve for the cocktail classes or visit during their free beer tasting time. - Large spacious rooms which are cleaned everyday - Definitely would be back soon and I highly recommend it specially for all the service it offers compared to its affordable cost.

Fab hotel, very central”

Friendly staff, fantastic spacious room, fantastically located

We had a fantastic stay at the universal Barcelona. It is so central for everything. Room was very big and spacious although we were at the rear of the hotel and overlooked the rear of some flats. We didn't venture to the top where there was a pool but heard it was nice, but cold. Had drinks in the bar most nights. All the staff so friendly and helpful. Don't bother having the breakfast. Wasn't that great. Just seemed very unorganised, lot of empty trays. Would highly recommend the hotel and if we go back to Barcelona, would definitely stay there again.

Have absolutely nothing negative to say about the Barcelona Universal Hotel. It is literally the first thing you see when you walk out of the Paral-lel metro station, which has good connections. When it rained the hotel was happy to lend an umbrella, the room was cleaned daily and staff would help with anything. Completely recommend.

Exceeded our Expectations”

The location and staff at this hotel make it the perfect choice. Barcelona Universal is only 2 blocks from main street, La Rambla, and much more quiet. The breakfast was absolutely amazing, and far exceeded in quantity and quality any you will find included in American hotels. The room with king size bed (2 twins pulled together) was a good size and very clean. We will definitely stay here again when in Barcelona.

Close to La Ramblas

barcelona universal was a great place to stay. services were wonderful and room was great with plenty of space. location was close to la ramblas which is a busy street with shops, cafes, and al-fresco dining. we were able to walk back and forth and at times when it got too late, we caught a cab back to the hotel for about 5 euros. the staff even reserved a taxi for our return trip to the airport. i would definately stay there again. there was always someone at the front desk and they were all polite and very helpful when we asked for directions.

Super Hotel, great location & staff”

Recently spent 4 days at this hotel after a repositioning Cruise. Communicated with the staff (Dalyn) prior to trip concerning best way to get from ship to hotel(taxi) . Upon arrival was actually welcomed by Dalyn. She told me they were upgrading us from the booked standard room to a superior room. Outstanding room! Did a beer free beer tasting in the bar/restaurant one night. Hotel is centrally located not far from the port, several long blocks from Rambla and on the same block as the metro. Have stayed at other hotels in Barcelona. But this was far superior to others. Price point was good. I will absolutely stay there if I return to Barcelona and will recommend it to friends. Thanks for a great stay!

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 hotel and very nice staff”

It is a nice hotel and the staff were very friendly and helpful. They speak English very well. It's very close to the Barcelona port and takes about half an hour to walk to the Cathedral and La Ramlas. The metro entrance is right in front of the hotel therefore it's so convenient to hop on to go anywhere you want. The airport is not close by and taxi costs 36 euros for 2 persons. The Sants (train) station is very close by and costs less than 10 euros for 2 persons.

Escape after GCSEs”

We have (my children 12 and 16) have just returned from 5 nights at the Barcelona Universal which we went to as an end of GCSEs treat for my older son. We really liked the hotel - very modern, new and in a good location - a few steps from metro and about 10 mins walk from Las Ramblas. I chose the hotel because it was central and had a rooftop pool which the boys really enjoyed after hot day's sightseeing. It is very small but didn't get too crowded. There is a bar serving food and lovely looking cocktails. Breakfast was plentiful with a good choice and lovely fruit. Because we were 3 people we had a corner room which was very spacious with a separate wardrobe room and a large bathroom. Only criticism was that the decoration was all dark and it was difficult to get natural light into the bedroom. However, overall, would not hesitate to recommend.

Superb, I would certainly recommend”

This hotel sits at the top of the Paral El metro station. You can reach anywhere from this hotel by underground or bus. The room is very clean with comfortable beds. There's a small pool on the roof with a bar serving food. We ate up there on our last night before heading to the airport and the food was good and reasonanable value. The views from the roof top are fantastic and you can see 360° across Barcelona. We didn't eat in the restaurant and we didn't have breakfast there as it was €17 each. There are plenty of bakeries to have breakfast in the morning and lots of Tapas bars in the vicinity too. Also McDonald's, KFC and Subway directly across the road if your looking for something low cost one night. Your probably a 15 minute walk from Kas Ramblas. The reception staff were amazing and gave clear instructions on what route's needed to get to the attractions. If I was heading back to Barcelona, I would definitely stay there again and I'd recommend it without hesitation

We stayed for 4 nights at Barcelona Universal Hotel. Overall the stay was pleasant with no major let downs. Breakfast each morning was great, the pool area while small, was good for an afternoon dip to cool off from the Barcelona heat. the room was kept neat & tidy during our stay and can't fault the facilities provided.

Very easy to get there from airport via metro. which is at the basement. Take Line 9 right to last station and change to Line 3. Get off at Station Parallel, take Exit San Pau and hotel is just next to it....super convenient. Within walking distance to the city, La Rambla, La Boqueria( very colorful market selling hams of all types) and Columbus Monument and Port Vell. MacDonald and Subway are just opposite. KFC is also nearby. To visit Sagrada Familia, take metro and get off at Sagrada Familia Station. The hotel has helpful and friendly reception staff who can speak English . Special mention was Alexandria who delighted me with her great service. I was impressed when I 1st wrote this hotel via bcnuniversal@nnhotels.es for directions to get to hotel. The reply was prompt, detailed, informative and helpful for me to make informed decisions. Room is very clean and spacious. Enjoyed our stay here. Highly recommend this hotel for those coming to Barcelona.

All around great affordable hotel ”

Sparkling clean, excellent help for travelers from reception, lovely roof top pool, free wi-fi, steps from metro station and great bar

We traveled with 2 teenage children in a separate room. We were overwhelmingly satisfied with hotel room, service, location and cost. Our room fee did not include breakfast, but we were directed to a local cafe where all four of us ate for 15€ (the cost of a single breakfast at the hotel). Metro was steps away from hotel, but we preferred walking the 10 minutes into the center of Barcelona. We thoroughly enjoyed the roof top pool - an unusual treat in a European city hotel. The receptionists were extremely helpful with directions, making phone calls and personal faxing at no charge. Our only complaint was that the hotel provided shampoo and soap was not great quality or quantity, but this is hardly a concern for us.
