    We really enjoyed our stay at the Barcelona Universal Hotel. Our room was comfortable and spotless. Front desk staff was terrific. Great location - within walking distance of many tourist sites but just far enough away from the busiest part of the city.

    Once a downtrodden corner of downtown Barcelona, this
    gritty area has seen a cultural resurgence boasting an
    excellent nightlife and one of the most multi ethnic
    spots in the entire city. A sense of humble
    authenticity protrudes from the many independent
    record stores, second hand shops, and student bars
    that seem to light up the streets day and night. The
    rocking epicenter, the MACBA Plaça, is a modern day
