H10 Universitat in Barcelona

This hotel was clean and very neat. It is done in a modern tone and not in the old style you would think you would find in Barcelona. Be prepared when you walk into your room to put you bag on the bed as you will take 1 - 2 steps in and hit the bed. There is a small path around the bed and then a bathroom that is a fair size. It was clean and enjoyable, but be forewarned that if someone is in the hall with a screaming child it echoes in the hall and comes right into your room, because of the marble floors. This hotel however does put you in the Ramblas area which is a great area to stay! Great restaurants, sightseeing and night life!

Money-saving tip: Short walk from hotel

There is a siteseeing bus that you can purchase one or two day passes for. Get the 2 day pass! This bus is a hop on ...hop off bus! It's great! Get to a place you want to be and hop off! Then hop right back on and go somewhere else! You can also use this to stop and shop as long as the store you want is along the way!

Barcelona Hotel

Arrived at H10 Universitat after our cruise only to be told that they had some water problems and offered to put us instead at a sister hotel: H10 Casanova. They even offered a free cab ride over. It was fine with us for the one night as we were leaving early the next morning for our flight home. However, the foyer of the Casanova smelled like sewer gas and it was about 4 blocks further away from the "action"/ Plaza Catalunya. Not a good start ... but the staff was good and our room was fine!

Great location, friendly staff, could be cleaner.

I spent a few days at this hotel to explore Barcelona. Location is great and staff are friendly. The hotel is so close to Plaza Catalunya where all the main tourist buses are and La Rambla and Paseo de Gracia are just a short walk away. Room service was good but isn't actually served the standard way. It's a take-away service which will be delivered to your door in take-away bags. The single room was ok but decorative pillows and glass doors had stains, so the room could be a lot cleaner. The white walls definitely need to be repainted as they were dirty. Bathroom was clean though and the AC was working. Lots of supermarkets and restaurants nearby and a large department store is around the corner. Safe location and very convenient. Walls are rather thin and you can hear the noise in the hallway. Overall good experience.

Great location, nice hotel

Great location -- walking distance to a ton of Barcelona highlights including Las Ramblas, Catalunya, Eixample, and even Park Guell (that was a very long walk though). Hotel is on a busy street, remodeled rooms with wood floors, nice breakfast included, and a great roof deck/bar.

Great Hotel

While free wi-fi/pcs is great - I have an issue with the computers. the mouse on one is a trackball but the other computer sounds like it will die soon. Send a tech to look at the machine! The only other thing is...staff is okay...they're professional and not overly friendly. The room we were given exceeded expectations. the only real issue is the thinness of the walls. I could hear everything from the hall and the rooms next to us. Also at night, there is a light from the hall shining under the door. I had to take a coverlid to block it. Maid service was great. They really fixed everything for us. The issue I had were that the sheets were definitely not changed daily or at all when we were there...

Entertainment tip: Long walk from hotel

Two of Gaudi's ingenius works are a long walk along the north part of La Rambla. High end stores share alot of the space with cafes. Also, the Rambla south of the Cataluyna plaza is a wonderfully short walk. And the bus to the airport is also a short walk from the hotel - the metro is right there. and alot of cool stores are right next to the hotel. Humana is a good store too - secondhand stuff. I found good deals there.

Great Locations

Easy to get to from airport. Blue bus goes to Placa Catalunya and easy walk from there - even with luggage. Great location at top of La Rambla. Close to Metro and within walking distance to areas of interest.

Very Good Hotel!

The room is quite clean and had good amenities. It is located very close to multiple metro stations, making travelling very easy. Good internet wi-fi connection (but no LAN connection available). Room had a flat screen TV but lacked a decent TV programming. Breakfast buffet is quite good and worth it.
