    100% recommend!!!!!!
    Hotel was amazing; staff very friendly and welcoming; views at the rooftop bar/pool were amazing; complementary cocktail making class was great. Only issue I would raise would be the lack of daylight in the hotel room we stayed in. Room was spacious and clean particularly because there were three of us in a room, we felt very at home. Location was fine.

    Great hotel
    Wonderful hotel with great amenities. The roof top bar and solarium are lovely and provide a quiet haven in a busy city. They also have great views across the city which are especially impressive at night. The hotel provides a daily teatime treat and on selected nights there is beer tasting, both activities adding to the enjoyment of your stay. The hotel is very clean and the buffet breakfast is exceptional. An example of the foods on offer are a variety of fresh fruits, breads, preserves, a hot selection including bacon, meatballs, Spanish omelette and quiches, a cold selection including meats and cheeses, yoghurts, churros and hot chocolate, a large selection of pastries and cakes and a choice of hot drinks and juices. The staff are very helpful, friendly and knowledgeable about the area. The hotel is situated within easy walking distance of La Rambla and the waterfront. All in all the Hotel Barcelona Universal is a great place to stay.

    Good 6.0
    Could be better
    My 2nd stay here and quite disappointed the 2nd time. The room we had had no window / view and felt very dark / closed off. Also the wait times to check-in and check-out are unacceptable. The gym is also useless (small and no machines). With some minor changes this hotel could be great.

    Disappointing stay in Barcelona
    Disappointed in the room I was given. Website description was a courtyard view but the rooms windows were blanked out with a white opaque film basically making the room windowless. This was very depressing to be inside.i would not stay at this hotel gain because of this. The rooftop bar and pool area was very good and so was the breakfast with good staff service. Bed was not very comfortable.
