“Location perfect”
Reviewed August 17, 2013

I stayed two nights at this hotel with my cousin in June. The location is perfect, less than 5 minutes walk from the Plaza Catalunya train station and metro. A very welcome drink was given to us as we checked in.
Our room was large, clean and overlooked the street. I expected it to be noisy so close to Plaza Catalunya but after about 10pm the traffic seemed to disappear and we heard nothing till the morning.
Breakfast was excellent and we found several very nice restaurants a few doors up from the hotel for our evening meals.
A super hotel in a super location, I will certainly stay here when I return to Barcelona with my daughter next summer.

This was a good place to stay centrally located in a busy part of town. We got this recommendation from our friend Marion who had stayed there prior to the hotel's renovation, which was tastefully done. We had a good sized double room on the third floor with all the amenities, which faced the street (what we had booked) complete with a full modern marble bath. Both always kept clean.The breakfast was truly a full one with much to choose from. if you need to you can take a bus to the far away locations just up the street at the Passeig de Gracia, as well as the Airobus, the bus to the airport. The hotel is within walking distance to the main shopping areas, as well as near the top of Las Ramblas. You will find a good selection of restaurants nearby. We walked the city from there for our three day stay. The friendly staff could not have been more pleasant or helpful.

this was a beautiful clean hotel, had a lovely terrace on the top where you could drink in the evening overlooking Barcelona, great location local for everything, rooms were always clean, hotel was spotless and staff were friendly, curtisy drink on arrival. The rooms were stunning, the bathroom was absolutly gorgous mini bar well stocked, the maids kept it spotless! The only negative thing I can say about this hotel is there was maintence work being carried out while we were there and we werent informed, we were woke up several times, drilling and hammering began at 9am which unfortuantly spoilt our expereince a little bit. But overall it really was a lovely hotel and definatly earnt its 4**** rating

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.

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.
