In a central location near the University of Barcelona
The H10 Universitat Hotel is conveniently located near various tourist spots in central Barcelona. The modernist landmarks that line Passeig de Gracia, along with the boutiques and restaurants of the Gothic Quarter are all within easy reach. Las Ramblas -- the tree-lined, pedestrian-friendly avenue filled with shops and nightlife options -- is a short jaunt away as well. Public transportation for the rest of the city is a breeze, and there are plenty of bus and metro stations in the area (Universitat station is the closest). For those arriving from BCN, the airport shuttle is just down the road. The actual location of the hotel is quite busy, so light sleepers might want to request rear-facing rooms.
Barcelona is an eclectic city that is popular for its historic and remarkable architecture, vibrant club scene, and urban beaches along the shores of the Mediterranean Sea. The capital of the Catalan region, Barcelona speaks its own language -- literally and figuratively. Known for a frenetic pace, the city is full of modernist architecture, medieval history, quirky fashion, and endless tapas bars. Located on the northeast coast of the Iberian Peninsula, the city has a Mediterranean climate with mild, humid winters and warm, dry summers.
The H10 Universitat Hotel has a central location about a block from the University of Barcelona. This 94-room hotel has contemporary decor with dark wood and pops of color. All rooms have big flat-screen TVs, free Wi-Fi, and appealing bathrooms. Hotel features include a restaurant and meeting space, but there is no spa, pool, or fitness center. This central hotel offers good value within easy walking distance of sights such as Las Ramblas and the Gothic Quarter.
