    Fabulous 8.8 From 2,302 reviews

    Exceptional 10.0
    Loved this hotel
    We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Hotel Barcelona Universal. The staff were very friendly, welcoming and helpful. We were very well looked after. The hotel was clean and cool... it was sometimes quite a relief to arrive back from the heat of the day, knowing the room would feel fresh and cool. The room and bathroom were a good size and we enjoyed a great view across the city rooftops from the 7th floor. Breakfast was excellent. We arrived towards the end of the breakfast sitting most days, but there was always a plentiful buffet on offer with such a wide selection of options it wasn’t possible to enjoy it all! The location of the hotel was also super... easy walking distance to La Rambla and the docks, and a metro station right outside. Would definitely recommend this hotel, and would stay again if returning to Barcelona.

    Absolutely great hotel in the centre of Barcelona, staff cannot do enough to help, the buffet breakfast was substantial with more that enough delights for every morning. The terraced pool was a bit noisy with children but the views more than made up for that. I would stay here over and over again

    Would definitely stay there again.
    Lovely hotel in the heart of the city! Ideally located! Despite been on the main road the noise levels were fine due to the glazed windows. Very happy overall.

    Fabulous experience
    Amazon stay. Hotel brilliant and staff could not do enough to help us. Special thanks to Elias, Tony and all the Terrace bar staff. Will definitely stay here again if we visit Barcelona.

    Good 6.0
    Great Hotel, shame about the voucher scam..
    Hotel itself is great, i had a bad experience with the staff. I speak native spanish AND english, and i checked in both languages 3 times.. the so called 20euro voucher, i was told it was valid for mini bar as well as in the main bar. I drank some mini bar water.. and then the hotel on checkout insisted it isnt included... after much arguing they did the right thing, but it left a sick taste in the mouth, im not the first, wont be the last, and it seems this scam is constantly happening.. night check in staff say one thing, daytime crew another and its a case of trying to wear you down. luckily for me, i was checking out into another hotel and wasnt in a rush so was happy to argue my case in front of a group of people checking in, being told about the voucher too... well done for doing the right thing, but i feel its a common theme.. Otherwise, rooms etc are fine, swimming pool is tiny, dont believe the photos.... but rooms are clean, beds are comfy, sound is quiet, everything else is spot on!
