    Very Good8.0
    Short break in Barcelona
    Basic hotel but clean and in a good location. Very good breakfast in fact breakfast was first class. Good service by hotel staff. The hotel itself is in need of some renovation . Nice view from the roof terrace . The gym could do with being a bit larger as it gets crowded with two people in it.
    Michael, ie5 night romance trip
    Hotel Barcelona Universal
    Excellent facilities and service.
    A first class hotel experience with a matching level of service. The only slight issue was an extremely slow check in procedure, which the very customer orientated front of house personnel apologised for..
