There is a touristic bus stop near the Hotel.

Also, bus number 24, which goes straight to Park Guell (Gaudi's Park), stops in front of the Hotel. The Barcelona Universal Hotel has 167 modern rooms and 3 suites with private terrace and Jacuzzi. We also offer 4 fully-equipped conference rooms and a floor with rooms that can be used as personal offices, private parking and a Business Centre with free internet access (broadband and wireless). The Hotel offers WIFI free of charge in all areas and rooms. Also in the rooms exists the possibility of using broadband internet connection free of charge. The hotel also boasts a gym, an outdoor pool, and a solarium that offers extraordinary views of Barcelona. Discover the unforgettable Rambla, or go for a stroll along Port Vell, through the Gothic Neighbourhood and explore the Liceu Opera House, the Catalan Music Palace, the Cathedral, the Magic Fountains of Montjuic, the Caixa Forum, the Grec Theater, the Poble Espanyol, the Mies van der Rohe Pavilion or the Olympic Stadium.

Clean and Friendly

This hotel absolutely did the job for our stay.

I booked it with 50% discount, including breakfast. If I had paid full price i might have expected more - our room overlooked an odd internal courtyard, so all we could see was other rooms, and it was very noisy - seemingly from the metro running under the hotel as well as in the corridors. As we were out most of the time this wasn't worth our while complaining about, and we both got very good sleep despite this.

The room itself was fine - clean and in good order - with an excellent shower. Breakfast was great - hot and cold food with a good range, fresh coffee and juices. Hotel is in a great location, just 5 minutes to Las Rambla, 10 to the Gothic Quarter. We didn't use the metro, because everything was within a nice walking distance. We had intended to use the pool, but didn't even go up there in the end, as we found so much else to do in the city.

Great hotel in a great location

From the first greeting at the door to check out we were made to feel special.

Every member of staff was polite and efficient. The rooms were very comfortable and clean. The breakfast had a fantastic selection to choose from. The hotel is a short walk from the main tourist area with lots of restaurants in the area. We had a fabulous time in Barcelona and hope to return and we would stay at this hotel again.
