Residencia Universitaria Sarria

Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 4 September 2017

My wife and me spent there 5 nights, the hotel is good place to explore Barcelona with a limited budget.
the room is a little bit small but clean with 2 single beds, TV, small refrigerator, shower and air conditioning. the room cleaning every 2 days.
The rooftop swimming pool is small but the view is amazing from there, another pool present in the fitness center in front of the hotel and you can use it for free.
Staff are helpful and decent.
Breakfast is good with different varieties including fresh fruits, egg, bacon, nuts, bakery, hot and cold drinks but the only negative point that glasses are not clean and you can see finger prints on it.
Transportation is very easy to and from the hotel as the bus stop located in the front of the hotel, from airport you can get bus (46) then (V3) to the hotel and that cost you 1€ when using (T10 ticket ) and the same to go to the airport (V3 > 46), it takes 1 hour.
to go to downtown you can get V3 bus then Metro L3 and it takes around 25 min and late at night N8 bus will take you from downtown to the hotel directly, every trip will cost you 1€ when using T10 ticket as you can change from bus to Metro or train with the same ticket within 75 minutes.
i strongly recommend this place to visit Barcelona and saving money.

Good small room to share with a roommate. Good cleaning. Breakfast, lunch and dinner everyday included. Laundry service (6€ do it your self, 9€ they do it for you). Far away from the center of Barcelona (Plaza Catalunya, Barceloneta...). There is a bus stop in front of the Residence and the Ferrocarril is close by.

The university is set in the hills of Barcelona in a more affluent suburb. It is the last stop on the bus from La Ramblas. We had booked the university as a last resort as weren't able to find accommodation for 10 at the last minute. Barcelona was our last stop as we visited Madrid and Valencia during a our holiday. Finding our way by bus was difficult. So please get a taxi. Arriving at the uni tired we went immediately to our rooms. The rooms are basic but have tv and ensuite. The kids went down to enjoy pool and futsbal. The residencia is clean and tidy, people are friendly and the age range varies from the young to old. Breakfast is great not very different from any hotel buffet but we didn't enjoy the dinner selection on the first days, which didn't matter as we were out all day for the rest of the holiday so ate in Law Ramblas. Great selling points for the kids were the poola. One on the rooftop and the second, a 30 sec walk across the rd at the gym which you have free access to. The residencia is set in beautiful greenery and the views from the rooftop are amazing. The staff are extremely helpful. The use of the laundry, TV room, games areas and the vending machines are a bonus. If your looking for 4* hotel standard this is not the place for you, however it's fantastic as somewhere affordable. The place grew on us over the days and the kids had a fantastic time.

We spent 4 days here, it was great, wish the vacation was longer. The room was clean (except a stain on the bed mattress) and it was cleaned by the personnel once every 2 days. The breakfast was included and we really had a lot to choose from. There was free wifi everywhere. So, all in all, i would definitely return. I don't know how the transport to the city center was like, because we came by car, which we easily used (the traffic in Barcelona was light, even if it was mid-August).

Fantastic stay for a group of friends, there was 10 of us in total staying for a long hen weekend. This was a great place to explore, we often used taxis as we visited restaurants and bars ~10-15 mins drive away. Staff were extremely helpful, couldn't ask for better service, especially taking into account the price per night reflecting budget accommodation. Rooms were very clean and modern, great shower, great roof top pool, impressive buffet lunch (9 euros) and breakfast (included). I would definitely stay again as a base for exploring Barcelona more.
