Had five days at the Barcelona Universal in early July 2009. On arrival we asked for a quiet room and they obliged. The staff were very friendly. The room was clean and spacious. The hotel was central for the Ramblas and harbour area and was very close to the Metro. We would definately use it again. There were plenty of cafes across the road for breakfast. Try the Dino pan. For evening meals try the Bella La Napoli on Margarit and La Bodegueta on Carre De Blai very close by in Poble Sec.
