We stayed 3 nights at Universal last week wth 8 friends came from California. The hotel is excellent in service and cleanliness and good breakfast food. Just walk less 10 min to the Ramblas. We enjoy the stay at this hotel. The only thing to remind you to bring your own face towel to wash face since the hotel does not provide it.

(Hotel Barcelona Universal wants to mention that towels are provided always, not understanding what guest might refer as “face towel”)
