“Superb”
Reviewed June 21, 2014

We booked this hotel through a deal on a travel site. The visit was outstanding from start to finish. The location is brilliant as its a short walk from the plaza catalunya where the airport bus drops off/picks up, metro station and the main attractions. First impressions were very good, the hotel was clean and modern. We arrived early so our room wasnt ready, dropped our bags off at reception with no problem and whilst checking in received a glass of cava, a nice touch. I needed to use the business centre, the staff were very helpful and facilities were good. We had a superior room, which was brilliant, it was light and airy. I like the minimalistic look and dont find it impersonal but I can see how others would. The bed was large and very comfortable. The bathroom was again very clean and a good size, the shower was lovely. The glass/frosted bathroom doesnt bother my partner and I but I can see why others may find it an issue. The sink in the bedroom is a little odd but not a problem as means you can use sink/mirror whilst someone else is in the shower/toilet. We had a veranda which was overlooked but still a bit private, it was too cold for us to use it but had it have been summer we would have used it. Breakfast was plentiful and of a very high standard. All the staff we encountered were attentive and friendly. The metro station is below and you could hear/feel the trains occasionally, we were on the first floor and I am a fairly light sleeper but it didnt disturb us at all. All in all a very positive experience and we would definitely stay here again.

Room Tip: If the metro station noise would bother you then requesting a room on a higher floor would be benefi...

We were impressed by the friendliness of everyone we met in Barcelona but the staff at this hotel were simply outstanding. From the moment we were welcomed through the doors we realised that we had made a good choice. Everything was quite simply perfect ... the decor, the administration, the welcome glass of cava, the stylish well-equipped room, the lavish breakfast and superb location. We can't wait for the next opportunity to visit Barcelona, and there is no doubt over which hotel we will head for. Top marks to the staff of H10 Urquinaona Plaza.

If you intend to stay at the centre of Barcelona for most of the trip, this the perfect hotel for you. Bus and Metro is literally just outside the front door of the hotel. You do hear a bit of rumbling from the Metro in your room because of this, but it only bothered me the first night and got used to it after awhile (we were on the 4th floor). What bothered me more was the sound of doors opening and closing even when you're inside the room.

We had a standard room with twin beds and a small balcony overlooking the street. It was quiet enough at night. The air conditioning seems to stay cool even if you set it at a high temperature, but it was mostly good for the hot summer days. Some people were bothered about the sink in the room and the glass door of the bathroom. But i actually liked it that way. The room size is also big enough (my husband is 6'4 and beds are long enough as well). The bathroom tiles could do with extra cleaning or an update but overall the room was clean, relaxing and nice modern decor. It was also cleaned everyday but the timing is a bit annoying at times ( we were out all day up until 3 pm one dat and it still wasn't cleaned even though we have put the please tidy sign on the door)

We've only tried some nachos, sangria and milkshake from the hotel, a bit expensive, but pretty good. But we did keep eating the marshmallows in the jar by the lifts.

Pool area is good for sunbathing and the actual plunge pool is good for cooling off. Garden are is ok, nothing to rave about, but relaxing enough.

Overall, a good and satisfying experience and recommend this hotel.

This a really elegant, high quality hotel. The staff are attentive, helpful and friendly (we took their recommendations for dining and a show and they were all good) and the breakfast is excellent.

BUT!!!! As others, have mentioned, the standard rooms really are very, very small (they would have more floor space laid on their side!) and there is nowhere for a suitcase. They provide towelling robes for going to and from the rooftop pool (well, plunge bath) but nowhere to hang them in the room. In short, space is at a premium. So for a night or two, no worries, go ahead, it's great (and very well situated) but anymore than that you will regret not getting a bigger room!

Room Tip: I say again: the standard rooms are very VERY SMALL!

The staff absolutely make this hotel - everyone we encountered was incredibly friendly and helpful. Our bags were delayed by 24 hours and the staff couldn't have tried harder to minimise the inconvenience of that - whether true or not they certainly gave the impression that they were sincerely concerned about our plight! The hotel's location is ideal, just two minutes walk from Placa de Catalunya but in a much more peaceful square. Yes, you can hear the Metro trains rumbling beneath you but it's hardly noticeable. The rooms facing into the internal "courtyard" are very small but also very well appointed.

Room on 6th floor was tiny and overlooking the 'well' but no noise from street or trains. So
take your pick. How many of your waking hours do you intend to spend in your room? TV could be watched comfortably from the bed.
Hotel was spotless. Staff were so pleasant and helpful - booking tickets, booking tables in good restaurants, advising places to visit. Breakfast is superb, but dinner needs to be 'out'.
Roof terrace is pleasant but may be overwhelmed by sunworshippers; Ground floor garden can also be a haven.
Hotel is 5 minutes walk from Catalunya Square - 2minutes would be a sprint- where Airport Buses depart every few minutes - cost 5.90 Euros per person one way - easily accessible, even for old folks wheeling cases.
