My husband and I just returned from our first visit to Barcelona we stayed in the boutique hotel “Barcelona Universal Hotel” it is right at the Metro stop Paralel-lei at the top of the stairs. Our room was fantastic right on the corner of the hotel on the 6th floor. The hotel is no more then 5 minutes walk to Las Ramblas and 5 to 10 minutes to the stylish Port Vell where anyone interested in sailing or motor boating will appreciate. There are plenty of stylish tapas bars within very close proximity to the hotel and for the traveller who would prefer to try the hotels facilities is has a lovely cosy bar and the restaurant serves a fantastic dinner for a very reasonable price. For the sportier clientell the hotels pool and gymnasium can be found on the roof and we were fortunate enough to experience very good weather in Barcelona for the month of November.
