Reviewed 8 hours ago

We stayed for 2 nights and will recommend this hotel to anyone. Amazing and friendly staff, great breakfast and plenty of events to participate in during our stay. Situated next to the metro station Paralel which makes it easy to get around

Friendly Staff, Beautiful Room, and Excellent Service
Reviewed 1 day ago

Our fantastic week long stay at Hotel Barcelona Universal was nothing short of fantastic. The friendly staff went out of their way to make us feel right at home. We received excellent care, as though we were part of their family. One young man in particular, Vincent, made our stay even more special. The Wolf Tavern and rooftop bar located in the hotel were not only convenient, but served delicious food in a timely matter and again, served us with incredible care. The various planned events made our time even more exceptional, especially during the rooftop celebration during the Saint Joan Festival. Last but not least, the front desk made us feel especially welcome. Because of this experience, we plan to return to Barcelona to stay at Hotel Barcelona Universal sometime in the future. They made our stay one to remember.

Staff absolutely fab, friendly and helpful. Straight off metro outside hotel, brief walk to La Rambas, touring bus stops ten/fifteen mins walk away. Lovely stay,thank you
Would definitely use this hotel again

Great Location
Reviewed 2 days ago

Stayed here for two nights after a week in a Villa. It was a great base for exploring the city with lots of amenities nearby and short walks to various attractions. The hotel has a small roof top Pool, but plenty of chairs available for sunbathing as a thoughtful grassed solarium area has been created. The bar serves incredible cocktails that are mixed professionally with absolute precision, disappointingly they are served in plastic glasses (understandable when you’re going to the pool, but disappointing when you’re just popping up for a sundowner to admire the view). Rooms were simple and ours had no external window, we looked in to an atrium. The downside was that the noise echoed and carried through the rooms because of this. Great hotel for a short visit without spending too much.

Unbeatable rooftop deck, pool and views

We had a fantastic stay made especially good by the rooftop deck, pool, cocktail bar, lounge areas and incredible views. Can highly recommend. Service great and perfect access for the metro. Would love to visit again.
