“Good substitute”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 6, 2013

We were sent to this hotel having orginally booked for the H10 Montcada (obviously overbooking although the staff blamed 'plumbing' issues!) The H10 Universitat is well situated and the staff were helpful (although the bar staff weren't particularly friendly or forthcoming). Unfortunately the weather wasn't good enough to enjoy the rooftop bar. Rooms were compact but clean and well appointed. We asked for a kettle for tea and coffee and this was happily provided. Location was a little further from the harbour and old Cathedral than we had hoped for but was very central and easy for bus and metro. There were some lovely local restaurants and a fab locals cafe across the road.

Dear Terebius 772:

Thank you for your comments, I am glad you enjoyed H10 Universitat and aslo your stay in Barcelona, sometimes there are situations like technical isues or weather conditions that we can't handle the way we've deserved moreover H10 Hotels owns nine (two more next year) hotels in Barcelona with similar standars to bring you the experience expected.
I hope to see you again in H10 Hotels in you next visit to Barcleona.

Marc Riera.

The H10 was first class and perfectly located ,staff could not be more friendly or helpful. We did the two day open top bus tour of the city which was interesting but overall felt we were missing something. Doubt we will return

We booked H10 Universitat via BA after a lot of research to find a good hotel in Barcelona.
Check in was quick and efficient with helpful, friendly staff. Our room was a good size with a comfortable bed and good shower.
Unfortunately our "view" was six lanes of traffic and a major intersection. The "convenient" bus stop was immediately below our window. So it was impossible to have the terrace door open and we had to use the aircon which we usually avoid, preferring fresh air. It did not appear to work so when we went out to explore the city we asked reception to check it out.
When we returned, the room was slightly cooler. The fan was very noisy - so the choice was traffic noise or aircon noise??
The "kettle" service is a great idea - provided to those who want/need it on request and not to all rooms.
The breakfast spread was wide and tasty.
I guess you have to trade off location/noise but the rooms at the front of the building should be properly sound proofed with efficient aircon.

Room Tip: Definitely not at front of building unless you are a heavy sleeper.

Dear CadmansKent

Thank you very much for your comments and sorry for the inconvenience of noise, we are checking our rooms facing Ronda Universitat to improve soun proof, more over air con noise is solved in your room.

I'm glad you liked our "on request kettle service" we realised that it's very importat for some of our guest so we bring, to all who may need it, the possibility to enjoy a coffe or tea at room.

Thank you very much once again!

Best wishes from Barcelona.

We stated at this hotel for 2 nights in a junior suite on the 8th floor. Our suite was nicely appointed, very clean, modern and comfortable. The balcony was a great bonus, as were the jacuzzi jets in the bath. Our bathroom also sported two showers and an impressive selection of complimentary products. Breakfast was also very good (€10 if booked with the front desk, €12 at the restaurant), with a nice selection of items in a lovely setting. My husband enjoyed a mojito in the rooftop bar. Speaking of the rooftop bar, this was directly above our room but we didn't hear any noise from there at all. We were also right next to the lift but again didn't hear anything from it.
Our bedroom benefitted from two built in wardrobes, a tv, safe, small armoire and triple sheeting on the kingsize bed (which was lovely by the way :D ).
The lounge also had a tv, armchair (very comfy), sofa and mini-bar with quite possibly the cheapest prices I've ever come across!
Barcelona itself is a big city and one we will no doubt return to but not in the middle of the summer. It is HOT and there isn't much in the way of a breeze outside or air con going on inside (unfortunately the air con in our room is the one grumble I have - it works but its not great). The architecture in the Gothic quarter is spectacular and Gaudi's work is breathtaking. We did the red and blue routes on the bus tours which were informative, covered a huge area and not too expensive at €26 each person for all three routes (there's a green route as well). We were warned to watch ourselves as the pickpockets and scam artists were out in force in Barcelona but we didn't feel at risk at any point and this includes wandering down La Rambla on a Saturday night.
We were also warned that Barcelona was an expensive city, which we found largely true however we also found some great bargains.

We have just returned from 5 nights at the H10 Universitat and can highly recommend it. Located a stones throw from the termination point of the airport bus and right in the centre of Barcelona. Booked through the Monarch site as a flight/hotel combi but actual provider was Cosmos. On arrival checked into room which was 'internal' - the only window opened onto an internal light well. On checking booking details we saw our room should have had a 'balcony/terrace'. Speaking with reception they told us they woul only receive a request from the agent for a double room so we don't know who's (lack of) duty is was to provide us with a balcony/terrace room.
Anyway the reception manager the following day transferreed us to a room at the front of the hotel which was much bigger and with a balcony...problem solved. The reception staf really are polite and obliging and of cheerful disposition.
The room was immaculate and well looked after. Breakfast had a great fresh selection of items and again the staff and dining area were excellent.
The roof terrace was a lovely area to relax at the end of the day and the drinks prices were good value.
In all would definitely recommend this hotel. The street outside is a bit noisy (but only from traffic) but given it's central location this is to be expected.

Room Tip: Not an 'internal' room, however these are much quieter than those at the front of the hotel.

Had a lovely stay at this city centre hotel in Barcelona.

We arrived early and were given our rooms without too much of a problem. We were also given a welcome glass of Champagne which was a lovely treat.

The hotel is modern and clean and the bedroom was comfortable. Close to many shops, restaurants and bars and within easy walking distance to La Rambla. The beach is a bit further away but there is a bus which runs down there, if walking is a problem.

The only downside was the WiFi was a bit hit and miss and there was no kettle in the rooms, so take a travel kettle if you want a cup of tea.

The staff were helpful, friendly and very efficient. Would stay again.

The H10 Universitat Hotel is located in a great quiet position close to the Rambla, about a three minute walk. Staff was helpful and friendly. A group of six (three couples) used the hotel as a stopover before joining a ship cruise. Highly recommend.
