Marinaalekseeva stayed here on Sep 29, 2010 during their trip titled: And finally 1: Barcelona.
... know Spanish as well so I wasn't completely a fish out of water! I was really excited to get to Spain because there was the promise of warmer weather and my best friend Larissa is studying there so I was going to be staying with her for those 4 days. It doesn't feel like we have been apart as long as we have but the last time was on my birthday in Rome! The plane ride was neat because I watched out the window as we went from mountains to ocean all in 1.5 hours.
... in the sights including some Gaudi homes and hoped the rain would hold off until after our tour of the Sagrada Familia. We had tickets to go up the Nativity Tower at 1pm. If the rain would hold off, we could get a decent view from the towers and better light to admire Gaudi's best work inside. The clouds parted right on time, and we explored every corner inside and every step outside that basilica. The outside is adorned with neo gothic and ...
... right in front of an Italian sailing ship visiting the port, the Amerigo Vespuci. Following lunch it was the aquarium, and then again by taxi to Barceloneta to take the teleferico to the Mirador at Mont Juic. We had to go up a steel tower probably a hundred feet high, but from there one can see the beaches full of people enjoying the summer sun and Sea. The ride to the Mirador above the port is short and takes about ten minutes, it ...
... nicer than the sangria I had had the night before. :) The show itself was not as enjoyable as we all had hoped. It wasn't bad as such, but just dragged on a bit. In the second half it became more fun as they got some of us up on stage to learn how to dance, and then did a big dance lesson at the end with everyone. After the show we were driven by Martin to Port Olympico. We all separated to grab some dinner, and then met again at 10pm to go to a bar. The ...

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.
