... decided to play up so I spent a little while in the loo. Thank god for medication.
So that kicked in and off we went. We met Lisa at Sagrada Familia and went and saw the most beautiful building. What an amazing masterpiece. Everywhere you looked you could see something different. And Em obviously still thinking of chocolate thought a set of spiral stairs looked like chocolate swirl. We took lots of photos and I'm hoping to get some from Lisa ...
... knows what. We thought it was a hen's night but on a Tuesday? They were well and truly plastered and chased groups who ran past, made friends with dogs and even the police. They asked us to join them as we were leaving but we made a hasty retreat - the cocktails they were drinking looked pretty lethal.
The other group was from Poland and carried on like yobbos but were harmless enough. They were drinking sangria on ...
Tuesday 21/1Striking lucky once again with a clear and warm day, I met up with Ross and Sarah by a huge market off the main shopping street, La Ramblas, and we caught the metro out to Gaudi’s cathedral, the Sagrada Familia. I have never seen such an incredible building as this. Begun in 18**, the largest of Gaudi’s architectural works has been under construction ever since, a mere 1** years! At the front is an elaborate array of four huge ...
... From Belgium, Flemish speaking, on expenses. I had to get the true story - they set up exhibitions (Mercedes etc.),spend their lives internationally, love food. They booked their table for tomorrow, off menu, lobster and scampi. So we booked the same food (same special price). Football and good food. Yum. Now for the bad news. Sent 5k to Freeport by wire transfer one week ago. Those of you who have had dealings with CIBC/FCIB will not be surprised to find out that it ...
We've explored a good part of the city within walking distance of the apartment. It's central location makes exploring the sights and sounds of Barcelona very accessible. Virtually everything in the old city down to the seafront is walkable.
We found purchasing the Artticket a very good deal, it gets us into all the major museums without standing in line to purchase individual tickets, like a lot of people we saw massed in front ...

Historical Traveler Reviews H10 Universitat Hotel Barcelona
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.
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!!
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.
I stayed at the H10 Universitat Hotel from 10 to 14 November 2004.
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.
