          This hotel is central to all the attractions in the city with the Metro right outside the hotel.Le Ramblas is within walking distance and is very vibrant. The hotel staff were very helpful and nothing seemed to much trouble for trouble. My Partener celebrated his 50th birthday and we were provided with a complimentry bottle of carva, a lovely touch.

          The only thing I would say is, it would be nice to have tea making facilities and bottles of water in the room. There was water but it came at an extra charge out of fridge.

          Fair price and reasonably located for sights.

          Firstly the Staff who were always polite, friendly and helpfull. They also shamed this Brit by speaking 2 or 3 languages with ease. Price was very competitive and good value for money. The roof top gym and solarium was nice place to spend a morning, and terrific city views from there. Good location, walk 10 minutes to Port and La Rambla

          Hotel seemed noisy at night. Rooms could be sound-proofed better.

          Hotel room was lovely, had a triple room, v spacious, double sink in bathroom, shower and bath...v clean. Found the staff excellent, location is perfect for getting around the city. In general an excellent hotel. The hair dryer was not good however so id advise bringing your own if necessary. No iron in room either, selection of tv channels only average. It is quite noisy at night but that is to be expected considering the central location. Perfect for a city break with friends.

          hair dryer, no iron in room. little bit noisy at night but thats to be expected really.

          the attention of staff when requested to deal with a problem with the safe in the room

          The cost of the breakfast. No facilities to shower after checking out. The location of the hotel required you to be alert when returning to the hotel after dark

          Barcelona Universal is one of the best hotels I have stayed in and I have stayed in a lot of 4 star hotels. It's location is excellent 10 min walk to La Ramblas and the port wat a lovely beautiful city Barcelona is. I went with 8 of my friends for 4 days and I must say it was the best trip we ever went on together. Pubs are very good restaurants most of them very reasonable and food top class Italian Thai steak/seafood etc. Back to the hotel the staff are the nicest people I have witnessed in any hotel they could do enough for u a beer is 3 euro in the bar did not have food as we went off every mornin to different places. The roof top pool is fab we had some craic in it for 4 days in the afternoon. Yes do watch our for pick pockets my brother had his iPhone 4 taken well he thinks he was pissed. A friend had 80 euro stolen on the tube so defo beware folks. I cannot recommend this hotel enough. Aircon in rooms lovely spotless rooms beds very comfortable. I cannot remember the hotel staff names but thank you very much for all your help and we will be back next year. Ray Simpson Waterford Ireland.

          The room was immaculate. I could not have asked for better service from the staff. The location is perfect for the visitor wanting Las Ramblas, touring generally (it sits right on top of the metro), and the beach is in easy walking distance too. Breakfast was excellent. All in all, great value and I would recommend it to anyone.

          Within walking distance of La Rambla and the Market. Cathedral and the waterfront also just a short walk from the hotel. Reception was very helpful and the doorman very polite and kind
