I recently stayed at the Hotel Universal for business. The hotel is conveniently situated in the old Olympic precinct of Montreal. Rooms are comfortable and the breakfast is well presented and inviting. Steak house a convenient 2 minute walk down the road if you are interested in external dining.

Great location, walking distance to the Planetarium, the Bio Dome and the botanical Gardens. Easy access to the 40, Boulevard Metropolitan. So about a 20 minute drive downtown, or take the metro just down the street. Great restaurants just down the street. We went off season, but even in season the rooms are very reasonable. The staff were great and... More

The hotel has some renovations, but it didn't affect my stay. Great staff, quick check-in and room was clean and well maintained during the few days. This hotel is across the street from the Olympic Stadium, Saputo Soccer Stadium and in easy walking distance from all major events that take place in the area. Great location and great value.

This has the feel of a hotel built for the Olympics. It's probably only had one makeover since then. The rooms were a little on the dark and gloomy side, with a fixed heating system that you have no control over. The pool was nice. We didn't use the restaurant - but there are only a couple within five mins... More

Nice hotel close to Biodom and Planetarium.Great sleeping quality. Comfy beds, low-noise air conditioning. One big downside is an Internet. It's free, but painfully slow. I wasn't able to used even to browse website or place a Skype voice call. Nice restaurant on the first floor. If you travel east to Sherbrooke you will find many other places to eat.... More

Rooms were clean, but the heat system was making very much noise when it started. The shower was mall and there was many variation in the water's temperature. The beds and their mattress were very comfortable!!! I would maybe return, but I don't think it's really a four-stars.

This hotel was ok. Stayed because it was near our conference location. However, it's not near any amenities like a Starbucks and it had very little amenities. You definitely needed a car to stay here. As noted in other reviews, elevator was extremely slow (this is an old hotel and it shows). When you stepped out of the elevator there... More

The room was very clean and open. I really liked the open concept even if you don't have a lot of intimacy (the open shower separate bed from toilet) elevators are really slow and it was a little bit noisy at night but not much as anywhere else. The breakfast is included and it was ok if you like eggs... More

I stayed here for a week. It's a solid average hotel, that showed it's age. The lobby is nice and check was was good, however they only have 1 elevator and it's not a fast one. This resulted in in bit of waiting time during the week. Housekeeping could do a little better. My room has a layer of dust... More
