Like Charlotte H we also have recently returned from a 3 night stay at the H10 Universitat before embarking on a 7 night cruise. The hotel location was ideal – very close to Catalunya Square, La Rambla and the city tour buses, the staff were lovely and the glass of cava was very welcome after our journey.
But what a letdown when we opened the door to our room – it was claustrophobically small, hot and very dark – and certainly not intended for travellers with 4 suitcases! When looked out of the window we realised that the darkness was because our “view” was a concrete atrium with virtually no natural light. We had to cram our luggage under the bedside shelves, the tiny wardrobe & the bathroom - there was virtually no space between the bottom of the bed and the door and we couldn't even pass each other to move around yet the bathroom was about one third of overall size of the room! There was nowhere to sit in the room other than on top of the bed. Housekeeping was not as good as it should be - the bed linen and bathroom were clean but when we removed the cases they were covered in dust from the floor. The bathroom was was separated from the sleeping area by frosted glass partitions so you would need to be on very intimate terms with your travelling companion (and don’t bring the cat!) – no bodily function can be left to the imagination!
Breakfast wasn’t included in our deal but we dined in the hotel on the first morning – the food was okay – not the best or worst we’ve ever had but definitely not worth 12 euro each so we went elsewhere for the next two mornings. There was a nice roof terrace to enjoy a drink in the evening.
We will definitely return to Barcelona and I would love to say that I would stay again but sorry - it’s too cramped and claustrophobic – even for the short time we spent in the room. Definitely not a four star hotel, even by European standards and I would not recommend this hotel to others.
