We stayed here with a large tour group. The rooms were nicely appointed and clean; the bathrooms were lovely. Only complaint would be the teensy tiny elevator which could only accommodate one person at a time with a suitcase... but once you get to your room, all is well. Excellent location here!! It can get a bit noisy at night... More

Have stayed here several times on short golfing breaks to Brittany. Less than 10 minutes from the ferry terminal its a great place to stay and explore the town and local countryside. It's located within the walls of St Malo, plenty of restaurants and bars right outside the hotel. The rooms vary and on my last visit I was given... More

We stayed at this hotel as part of a package with Brittany Ferries. The hotel was quite easy to find and is well positioned within the walls. It is well worth walking round the walls and access is easy from the hotel. Free parking on the road is available near the hotel although is very limited. There are some spaces... More

We did a three nighter with Brittany Ferries & with such it's worth what you pay! It's within the walls & therefore you are well located! Despite various comments parking is available & only some 5 mins from the hotel (free!) it's not a problem ! Certainly finding a parking if an eve is not a problem! The first room... More

We had a wonderful experience at hotel l'Univers. The personnel was friendly and incredibly accommodating - the room we had initially reserved had a shower and we made a last minute request for a room with a bathtub and they were to happy to accommodate. Our room was modern and clean - the bed comfortable. The bathroom was very large... More

We have just arrived home after our 4th short stay at this friendly hotel, San Malo is a wonderful place to explore. It has much of its world war history on show a much fortified city. Many of the 'pill boxes' are stil in situ and its forts still visible. The city wall is complete and offers a very interesting... More

Enjoyed a few nights here recently as part of a Brittany Ferry package. Super Hotel with comfortable warm rooms and a very generous breakfast. Nicely decorated throughout and very helpful and pleasant staff. Will certainly return. Good easy access just a short stroll from the Ferry Port. Easy parking close by.
