“Good location!”
Reviewed June 4, 2013

The location is very good and easy to get around everywhere. Hotel staff are helpful providing information. Will definitely recommend to friends. It would be great if it is blankets instead of just sheets in the room.

Stayed March 2013, traveled with friends

It is reasonably priced for Barcelona, in a good location but the rooms are tiny. You really might feel claustrophobia. If you don't mind that then the rest is fine, clean, modern, very good breakfast service, and good size bathroom (about a third of the size of the whole room)

The hotel is in the centre of Barcelona with easy access to the surrounding area. The hotel staff were exteremyl friendly and offered a complimentary glass of wine on arrival, a nice touch, and free internet access for several devices which again is great. There is just one lift in the hotel which does mean it is busy and sometimes is quicker, and healthier to use the stairs. The room was not large but adequate, but was spotlessly clean, neat and tidy. The room had a minibar, safe, but no tea and coffe making facilities. The bathroom was also very clean and relatively large in size with a good large shower, just lacking a soap dish. The hotel room has a dismal view from the window so keep the curtains closed. The stool provided at the table was too short and made working at the small difficult difficult. Breakfast was adequate.

Dear drakeekard:

Thank you very much for you review, we are located in the middle of Barcelona and it gives our guets a easy acces to all the most interesting visits, as you say, more over our staff are always up to date about what's on Barcelona. Also thank you for all the good things that you tell about us.
As I see in your review we have to improve the comunication about some of our services, as elevator, we have to elevators from the main floor to the higest, one is at the back side of the other, so it's difficult to know it if we don't tell you, sorry. Moreover we have coffee and tea facilities for free asking for it at reception, so next time you come to visit us we'll explain it better.
The soap dish is at the bathroom now, thanks.
I take note of your comments to improve our service, once again thank you very much.
I wish to host you again at H10 Universitat in your next visit at Barcelona.
Best regards.

Situtated halfway between Placa De Universitat and Placa de Catalunya, The Universitat is ideally placed for visiting the tourist heart of Barcelona. Less than five minutes walk from La Rambla, 10 minutes from Placa Reial and 20 minutes to the seafront, and with two Metro stations a few minutes walk away, it's an ideal hotel to stay at. Our room, 612, was lovely; a large, comfy bed, balcony with views down to Placa de Catalunya and a good bathroom - it's worth paying the extra for a superior room. The staff were always friendly and helpful, gave us maps of the city and directed us to locations we wanted to see. Breakfast was a good selection of cooked, cold and continental style selections.

The hotel has a roof terrace bar that is open from 230pm to 930pm, and it's prices are better than you'd expect for a hotel, and the views are spectacular. I'd definitely use the H10 Universitat again.

Room Tip: Pay extra for a superior room, ask for one high up for a good view

We spentbfive days at the hotel and we have to complained twice about no smoking rooms smelling of cigarettes. Once they changed the room, giving us smaller room that the one we rented. The second time we complained because onthe next door room were smoking (in spite that was a non smoking room), the attitude of the reception personnel was totally indifferent and rude washing their hands on the problem.
The hotel claims that from the 4th floor the rooms are not smoking, which is not the case. A very bad experience in this hotel

The staff was very helpful. The room, although very clean, was very, very small. We had what they called a standard room. We could only walk around the bed and the bathroom was teeny tiny, even though it was very nice. We had to store our suitcases under the vanity in the bathroom. Tiny closet with two little drawers. The breakfast buffet was very good. Lots of variety. The coffee was awful for us Americans. It was so strong that I couldn't drink it. The location was fantastic. Just 1/2 block from the square. You can pick up the hop on/hop off busses there. La Ramblas just a block off the square. We had an inside room so it was very quiet. The air conditioning did not work at all and we slept with the window open. It was quite comfortable. The rooftop bar was a nice touch. We sat up there every evening and had drinks. We would stay here again for sure.

Room Tip: You may want to upgrade your room as the standard room is very small. Otherwise, fantastic hotel.

Would recommend this hotel for the position being an easy walk away from all the action. The staff are very friendly and helpfully; the breakfast is excellent with an enormous choice of both hot and cold; the roof top bar was great; the room which we upgraded to was clean airy and the bed very comfortable. the bathroom was fine. No complaints at all.

Room Tip: I think the hotel is a little cramped so we upgradred for a junior suite; well worth it
