Fantastic hotel
Reviewed 2 days ago

My daughter and I visited this hotel for 2 nights on 8th July. We were welcomed at Reception and upgraded to a room at the rear of the hotel with a terrace! Location of hotel is fantastic with a metro station literally outside the door of the hotel. This made for a very easy journey by metro from the airport. Easy to walk to Las Ramblas, just as easy to take metro anywhere! There is a handy 24/7 convenience store almost next door to the hotel which was great for cold drinks and snacks.

Our room was great, we were glad to have the air-con. We found the room to be quiet with no noise from the road at the front of the hotel.
The hotel staff are very friendly and the service we received was always first class.

However, the best thing about the hotel is the bar and pool on the rooftop. Fantastic views over Barcelona, great cocktails and very friendly staff. We had lunch there on arrival and the food was good. On our second night we had a nightcap on the rooftop, watching the lightning in the distance - amazing!
We had paid for breakfast in advance and I have to say the selection was impressive. Plenty of healthy options as well. They also have Cava and fresh orange juice, so we enjoyed a lovely bucks fizz with our breakfast!

Overall, this is a fantastic hotel in a great location and I wouldn't hesitate to book again next time we return to Barcelona.

Spent a night in the trypp across the road as we arrived into Barcelona early and the universal was fully booked. We walked over early on our check in date and have to say the reception staff were amazing. We were issued our room straight away and offered free drinks.

The Universal is in an ideal location and has a metro stop outside the door. The ten trip ticket on the metro system was brilliant value.

The room was satisfactory though the lifts could be heard throughout the night.

Rooftop terrace is stunning as the the bar/restaurant on the first floor. The bar is simply stunning but such a waste as it was always quiet. The only reason I can think for this is that there’s no outside areas.

We would happily stay here again

Wow! A fantastic place to stay....

This trip was for our wedding anniversary and we had the most perfect time.
We had arranged a bottle of fizz for our arrival in the hotel room, which was duly waiting for us. The extremely informative lady on reception even gave us her personal favourites for special places to eat and recommendations on the menu itself.. The rooms are air conditioned which was a god send. We didn’t use the pool or terrace but they looked fabulous. We only stayed for breakfast on one day as we explored other eateries in the area. The breakfast was lovely and plenty of it, even including fizz if you can handle that first thing..! The metro just outside the hotel is a real bonus. We got to Camp Nou and Montjuic on it. Le ramblas is a 10 min walk away as it the gothic quarter. The beach is a bit further away but definitely worth the adventure :) All in all, a great hotel, welcoming, informative and in a brilliant location.

We stayed for 2 nights at the end of our holiday. The room was very clean and we had a king size bed which after 10 days in a mobile holiday bed was amazing. The staff are very helpful and friendly. You must visit the terrace bar if not for the view itself but for the lovely staff that work there. We really enjoyed our stay here and thanks again
