The hotel is fairly cheap and the location is perfect. That said the rooms are old and cramped and the elevator (lift) is so small that I had to struggle to fit my small suitcase and backpack. The breakfast is not worth it.

The Hotel is in a great location - an 15 minute walk from the Ferry for foot passengers or close to good parking if visiting by car. There are many local restaurants and bars within easy walking. The Hotel has been updated since we first stayed here and the rooms are adequately furnished and clean and the beds are comfortable.... More

This is a mature established hotel. Situated at the main gate to the Intramuros and near to shops, restaurants and the wall. It could not be more convenient. There is parking meter parking nearby, but you are better parking outside the city walls on the harbour side (3 min. walk to hotel). The hotel is under going refubishment to the... More

Having stayed in many hotels priced more or less the same as Hotel l'Univers, I must say that I did not find this was value for money. The room was small and basic. Situation is very good but I'd look elsewhere next time.

We stayed for 2 nights in a double room. The location of this hotel was perfect. An extremely short walk to restaurants and sights. Breakfast left a little to be desired but the quality of the hotel made up for it. Very friendly staff who spoke perfect English.

The breakfast buffet cost €10, but was good value. We stayed for a week and it was a memorable and enjoyable stay. The hotel must be in the classic French style - our room was certainly described as such - and is beautifully situated within the great walls around St Malo old town and with the Hotel de Ville just...

Third time we have stayed here. Arrived off the ferry booked in around 9.00am and room ready. Found the room was on two levels as I tripped on my way to Bathroom! Shower has sliding doors and no handrail or shelves to put anything. Staff always helpful and happy. Breakfast not over the top but good enough. Location by the... More

Room 111 Staff most helpful - we arrived direct from the Brittany Ferries journey a little after 6.30am!!! Luggage carefully stowed away so we could enjoy the day unloaded The room was small but comfortable - unusually there was a large step into the ensuite which was problematic when we forgot it was there! The shower too had a very... More

Good little hotel in a perfect spot inside the walled city of Saint Malo. Only a walk away from the ferry terminal and train station. Buses are also just a minutes walk away. We only stayed for a couple of nights en-route from Guernsey to Paris. Wished we had stayed longer though as there is so much to see and... More
