Modern convient hotel in Barcelona Dec 13, 2011
A very modern hotel in a convient location. The Paral-Lel Metro stop is directly in front of the hotel, making it convient to get around the city. The metro is easy to navigate, however all escalators are going up, so there are a lot of steps going down the the trains.

The Universal has a small rooftop pool, excersize room and garden area, and has fantastic views of the city. The marina and cruise port are within reasonable walking distance, however I suggest calling a cab if you are going on a cruise. You don't want to drag your luggage that far.

The universal has a cocktail bar on the main level, and a restaurant on the first floor, however I never ate their. There are many small sidewalk restaurants in the area and part of the fun of travel is getting to know the local area.

Language was not a barrier at the hotel or at most of the "tourist" locations.

Very Clean, good location, but overpriced Nov 27, 2009
we stayed here for 3 nights in november 2009 before a mediterranean cruise. pros: great location right by the metro stop made it easy to get anywhere you wanna go. the room was spotless, the bathroom was large and very nice with a great shower and a towel warmer. they have 2 computers for your free use of the internet (although they are unbelievably slow). cons: even though it was convenient to the metro, the neighborhood directly around the hotel wasn't nice. the beds were hard as a rock. they didn't provide hand soap, or hand towels. one day when we came back, the maid had left our door open! thankfully nothing was stolen but that was ridiculous. they have an OK breakfast buffet, but they charge you 14 euro each for it, which is really overpriced for what it was. Overall, it worked out fine for us, but next time we will stay somewhere else.

I found the beds OK when I stayed therre, though probably indulged in a few more beers before sleeping in it :-D. Plenty of soap and shampoo and stuff as I filled my travel washbag with stuff on the way out. The bit between the hotel directly to Las Ramblas was decidedly dodgy

Good location,good value Nov 05, 2007
Might not have been overwhelmed by Barcelona, but this was a good hotel to stay at. Good sized comfortable rooms, with a great bathroom and shower. Well decorated and maintained,and found it very quiet. Easy walking distance to Las Ramblas and to the marina and it had a metro station right outside, which was great for our purpose of going to the Nou Camp as it was a direct line. Staff were really helpful in giving directions and recommending places to eat. There was free access to the web on the hotels PC's in the lobby and it had wi-fi in the room. There was a health studio, pool and rooftop terrace but we never made any use of them during our stay
