We enjoyed our stay , it was a comfortable room facing a quiet side street within the beautiful fortress in St. Malo. Nicely decorated and very clean. Views and vignettes are readily available everywhere in St. Malo, as are shops and bistros. This city is a little paradise. Hotel L’Univers is a lovely place with very cordial people. The bar...

We have just returned from a wonderful stay at Hotel l'Univers in St Malo. The location of the hotel is amazing. You are near the bars, shops and beach. The staff were incredibly friendly and helpful. Our room was spacious, very clean and overlooked a quiet side street. The breakfasts were lovely and you can help yourself. There is something... More

Hotel is located inside city walls, next to the fortress of St. Malo. This mean it can be very noisy outside if your room is facing main street, due to lots of bars and restaurants are located just few meters away. Shops, restaurants, bars, harbour, city walls - everything within a few minute walk, very convenient. There is no parking... More

We had to ask for the croissants to be topped up as there was only 2 left, the orange juice was nearly empty and there were no juice glasses. It took 30 mins for this to happen and then we had no apology just 'I need your room number'

Recently, we enjoyed a comfortable room facing a quiet side street at the very well located Hotel L'Univers within the beautiful fortress in St. Malo. Views and vignettes are readily available everywhere in St. Malo, as are shops and bistros. Early June is not at all crowded; that comes later in the summer. A lovely place with very cordial people.... More

3 night stay as part of a Brittany Ferries golf trip. It's a pleasant hotel, but very quirky. Rooms were clean, as was the ensuite, but low doors, steps into shower etc meant lots of bruises if not paying attention to where you were going. Right in the old walled part of St Malo, it certainly has character, lots of... More

I've stopped here for 3 nights on 3 separate golf trips in the past 5 years. It's in a great (touristy) location just inside the city walls and although parking is an issue anywhere around here it is probably the best served in terms of the pay & display car parks with lots of spaces within a 5 minute walk....

This hotel is in a great location in the old part of town inside the city walls. We had room 303 facing the square. It got noisy with the window open but ear plugs fixed that. The room was small but we expected that. The bathroom had a tiny light and it was very hard to see. The was no... More

Stayed here for 2 nights on the 3rd&4th of May. The hotel is in a perfect location right near all the restaurants and shops inside the old town of Saint Malo. It is also about a 2 minute walk to the beach and about a 10 minute walk from the ferry terminal.We stayed here quite a few years ago and... More

We stayed here over the weekend of 20th April, having booked the hotel via friends as part of a Brittany Ferries package. The welcome was warm and accommodating - we were able to leave bags while we explored the town. The location is good and the room was perfectly adequate. We used the bar and the staff were friendly and... More
