Decent hotel, free breakfast, on the edge of town
Posted Apr 20, 2017
My wife and I stayed at Hotel Barcelona Universal for three nights. We arrived early to check in and even though our room wasn't quite ready, the front desk staff were very helpful in storing our luggage and giving us things to do while we waited. When we arrived back, we were found to have gotten an upgrade for free to a superior room! The room itself was rather large and we loved the wooden floors. The hotel appears to be older, and you can definitely tell its age, but they have a done a good job of keeping it clean. The breakfast included was great and the same restaurant serves lunch and dinner till midnight. We had dinner there one night and it was actually very good! The hotel is definitely on the edge of town, but it was nice because it forced us to walk all around the city and we discovered restaurants we wouldn't have found if we didn't stay outside the city center. Overall, great value for the price.
