Me and my cousin went to Barcelona to celebrate our birthdays which was one day apart. I made all the arrangements and after reading the reviews for the Hotel Barcelona Universal, I decided to give it a try and I must say NO REGRETS whatsoever! The staff was amazing! Martins checked us in and gave us a courtesy upgrade with stunning views of the Main street and we loved it! She also helped us with finding a great restaurant for dinner. Carlos is superb and assisted us with everything from where to go for nightlife to restaurants. Alessandra assisted us with booking our tours and no question was too much for her! They even treated us to apps and drinks on the house for our birthdays! The hotel is perfectly located and within 10 minutes from all the action of Las Ramblas and La Boqueria Market. The metro station is steps from stepping outside the hotel. Talk about convenience! I plan on being back and when I do I will definitely stay there again! Thanks to the mentioned staff who made our birthday stay a memorable one!

It.s close to everything you would like to see. There’s lots of restaurants and cafe’s nearby. About less than minutes walk to Las Ramblas,, Columbus circle and the beach. The surrounding is quieter than it it is in the Las ramblas district. This hotel is very nice. I will stay here again.

Less touristy area w/ restaurants/bars and subway

Location was pretty convenient. Hotel staff was kind. Hotel room was the issue: 1) The housekeeping staff would ignore the "Do not disturb" sign and on two occasions walked in (without knocking either!). One time they came in and cleaned while we were out despite the do not disturb sign. 2) Air conditioning would shut off after 1-2 hours so if the room was still warm, you have to restart it. This was annoying in middle of the night. It never hit the target temperature. 3) Toilet had slow leak and every hour or so the tank would fill. 4) Wifi was slow and unstable.

Great location and typical European hotel

Pros: The location was great and the pool on the roof had a spectacular view.
Cons: The breakfast was expensive and not all that great.
Location: It was located within walking distance to Las Ramblas and the subway was just outside the front door.
We had three people in our room so I slept on sofa bed. The room was large enough but sparse in luxury. It had hardwood floors and Ikea style furniture. The were no windows to the exterior of the hotel just to the interior.
