I have stayed at this property a few times before (when it used to be The Auberge) and have never been disappointed. It is close to the Bio dome and Olympic Stadium and not too far away from Downtown. The rooms never disappointed us and we were always impressed by the value we got for our dollar. I recommend this... More

My family and I stayed here this past week, great stay at the hotel, very friendly and helpful staff. Wheelchair accessible, clean rooms, nice pools. Good and reasonable priced restaurant in the hotel and in surrounding area. Close to metro or use their friendly shuttle. Highly recommend staying here and plan to return.

Our visit started on July 12th......... Free parking for a start, and if you are looking for a 5* Hotel this isn't it but if you want a hotel that offers helpful service a shuttle (when available) clean rooms and comfortable beds this it. Also the breakfast buffet starts at $12 (INC TAX) for a so-so buffet. Close to the... More

This hotel is in walking distance to the Biodome, Planetarium,Botanical Gardens, and most importantly the metro and bus line. There are a few restaurants in walking distance,but nothing particularly good. Our room looked old and dark. The most modern thing in the room was the t.v., but it had an old universal remote that did not work well. The indoor... More

I failed to realize that the Montreal Jazz Festival was in town, so when I started looking for a place to stay in Montreal for late June / early July, my choices were dwindling. The Hotel Universel has good nightly rates, an outdoor and indoor pool, gym, bar, restaurant, and gift shop. The hotel itself was clean. I noticed a... More

If you are looking to stay near the Olympic Stadium, or Pierre Carbonneau Centre this is the hotel you should stay at. Although it seemed a little older, this property is well maintained , stayed for 2 nights, clean , comfortable, and pretty good value. The staff at the front desk were very helpful, and everything in the room worked... More

Large room, queen bed, refrigerator, free wifi. Very satisfied with our stay. Close to Botanical garden and not far from Metro stop Viau. Helpful front desk staff. Would choose this hotel again. On-site restaurant and bar are convenient after long day of travel.

tripadvisor@tripadvisor.com I am sorry to remark that, for the first time in quite a long period, my reservation through booking.com was very far from a success. On a vacation trip with my wife, from Rio de Janeiro through New England and up to Quėbec and Montrėal in Canada, we found the Hotel Universel in Montrėal quite comfortable, well located and... More

I stayed here for 3 nights on a business trip. From the outside it looks very average and perhaps even a little drab. Foyer very warm and inviting and staff super friendly and helpful. Check-in was friendly and efficient. My room was spacious, well furnished and clean. On my first night I decided to unplug the clock (as a 'test")... More

We stayed here for the Grand Prix weekend, and we were delighted. I found the desk staff to be very helpful, especially Tzatiana, who's name I just misspelled I'm sure. At any rate, they went out of their way to help us out and make us happy. It was convenient to the metro, and the shuttle was happy to take... More
