Perfect place to stay
I cannot give this hotel a better review. It was very stylish, perfect location - 2 minute walk from the main metro/train station, 5mins to Las Ramblas, the staff were very friendly and genuinely helpful. We got cava and sembe on our arrival and the room had verything we needed and ours was a very good size (401). I think this was because I asked for a room overlooking the street - we saw into a few other rooms that were very small, so thats my tip. I also asked to be above the 3rd floor following a review on this site and we were never disturbed by noise from the metro or the traffic.
The breakfast is a site to behold and worth every penny. From Cava and wine, cereals, cheeses, fruit, yogurts, cakes and pastries, cooked breakfast to endless tea, coffee and juices. We often didn't need lunch after such a good start to the day.
We needed to leave our bags there for 5/6 hours when we checked out and there was no problem and no charge. Each room has a safe which was very handy as you really don't want to be carrying too many valuables with you round Barcelona.
Top tip for a nice place to eat is Cafe de l'Academia. Bit more expensive than the others but worth it.
Trendy and stylish!!
Superb hotel, they welcomed us with a glass of CAVA and the staff were extremely friendly and helpful, the rooms were lovely and clean, absolutely amazing, one of the best hotels I've stayed, the design was modern and everything was brand new, the bed was soooo confortable!! Brilliant place, very trendy and stylish!!
Comfortable stay in Barcelona
The hotel is in a great spot , just off Placa Catalunya so is an ideal base to explore Barcelona from.Our room was very clean , modern and comfortable if a little on the small side.Fantastic shower.8th floor so nice and quiet.Great breakfast , lots of choice and great value for an all inclusive deal.Staff are very friendly and helpful with info on Barcelona.We asked for some restaurant recommendations.They suggested a place in the Born area L'ou con Balla..very intimate but food and service was somewhat wacky and bizarre for our tastes !! We would recommend GAIG, we had a fantastic meal , Michelin standards.Note GAIG has moved from the Horta district to the design hotel Cram which is much nearer to the h10 universitat hotel.Only found this out after a 20 Euro round trip in a taxi !!!!!!! Another fantastic find in Barri Gotic is a traditional cava/tapas bar..a fantastic spot for lunch called XAMPANYET , always packed and full of atmosphere. Dined at Citrus on Passeig de Gracia but were very disappointed ! .Overall this is a great hotel in an ideal location. Would definitely stay again if ever return to Barcelona.
Wonderful little place!
Great location just off the Placa de Catalunya and therefore very close to the Las Ramblas but far enough to escape noise. We stayed from Nov 26-29 and found the hotel staff friendly and the breakfast good. The room however, was very small (avoid room 610 if you're claustrophobic and don't want a view of a wall). Two people could not walk by each other. That said, the rooms are clean and modern, internet access is free, and there's a decent selection for breakfast. The location however, is what makes this place worth every cent at £67/night including breakfast.
This is a Gem
I stayed at the H10 Universitat Hotel from 10 to 14 November 2004.
I picked this hotel by pure chance - other city centre hotels in the 150 Euro price range were full.
I was pleasantly surprised that this hotel has everything: tasteful comtempory interior/ art everywhere/ designer bathroom for my courtyard facing room/ nice toiletries / friendly helpful good-looking staff/ welcome drinks/ delightful buffet breakfast with over 30 food items/ free internet terminals/ central location.
Staying at this hotel was one of the highlights of my trip to Barcelona. My partner and I were very happy. This hotel was nearly as good as the Hotel Continental in Florence where I stayed last year.
However, if you prefer old world charm and associate contempory interiors with business hotels (think W and the newer Westin), you may want to avoid this hotel. One more advice: shop around for rates. I paid less through an on-line agent than booking direct with the hotel.
Just fantastic !!!!!!!!
Execellent location. Very near to La Ramblas and other shopping districts.
We took a city tour and the nearest stop was only 2-3 minutes away.
Helpful and friendly staff.
Room was spotless. Very nice and clean washroom.
Value for money. Will stay again if we go to Barcelona again.
I took my boyfriend to stay at the Universitat in September 2004 for 2 nights for his birthday. What a perfect loaction! The hotel is situated at the top of la ramblas in placa catalunya - so central to all the must see attractions. The staff were very friendly and accomodating, and although the room was very small (apparantly this is pretty much the norm in Barcelona) it was very clean, and furnished in a modern contemporary style with a great marble shower room. The breakfast was phenominal for the price you pay (a few euros) - you have such a wide choice of freshly cooked foods. The hotel is so easy to get to from the airport as well - there are two metro stations either side of the hotel (by the way get a T10 ticket for the train and the metro - you can use this for more than 1 person for up to 10 journeys - cheap). I would definately recommend this hotel for a short stay break.
Excellent hotel - greeted with a very warm reception, glass of champagne and nibbles!
Breakfast was included in our deal and was of a very high standard.
Room although a little small, very clean, ultra modern decor, LCD flatscreen TV, bathroom with very powerful shower. High standard all round.
Free internet access.
Location - excellent and very central for shopping, eating and transport links.
Underground/Subways run underneath the hotel - we had a room on the first floor, noise was quite loud, we asked to change to a higher floor - staff very helpful and noise level better!
An excellent hotel, would definitely recommend or return.
My husband and I stayed at the h10 Universitat the day before our cruise. The staff were quite friendly and helpful to our needs. Our room was small, but it was very clean and comfortable. The bathroom was huge and lovely. We both slept very well, barely hearing any outside noises. Our hotel was a short walk to the ramblas, making it easy to explore many of Barcelona's beautiful attractions. Taxies are quite reasonable for exploring areas outside your walking reach. We took one to see Park Guell, and were quite impressed by its unique architecture. We had so much fun in Barcelona and highly recommend this hotel.

... Hopefully this will continue on the Gaudi tour I’m going on tomorrow!
After the tour my new friend April and I headed towards the Arc de Triomf for lunch in a café off Ronda da Sant Pere. From here we stuffed around trying to organise train tickets, fortunately quite successfully in the end.
This evening I headed to Camp Nou, home of FC Barcelona. As someone that knows very little about the way football works I, all in all, really enjoyed myself. I had ...
... Parc Guell originally was made to be an elegant housing estate with family homes with Antoni Gaudi being contracted to style the place, but the development was unsuccessful and the area was later turned into a public park for locals and tourists to enjoy.
Parc Guell also contains a small home where Gaudi personally lived which has now been turned into a museum containing some of his famous artwork.

... and dance and drink. We learn this club is open until 5:30am! Definitely not in Cali anymore. If I had to guess, we pop out of the club around 3:30am. Still awake and happy, and also hungry, we begin down la rambla. In hope if food, but not high hopes, we ask a couple of the club promoters lining the street, but no luck. There are a lot of hookers, along with few street venders walking around with some sort of burrito and some fried something or other (good ...

And its off we go..... Taxi at 7:30 to Santiago airport. 9:15 flight with Vueling to Barcelona, we arrive around 10:45 a.m. And again take a taxi to our Hotel. Its nice to know we are assisting the economy of the taxi industry in the last few days. They certainly got nothing out of us until now!! lol Once at our Hotel, we basically dropped our bags and headed out to make the most of what was left of the day. We got onto ...
