Excellent situation, right next to easy access for the ramparts and the whole of the walled city; also very near several beautiful beaches. Room was clean, with a very comfortable bed and we had no problem with noise at all. The breakfast was good, lots of choice. Many good restaurants a short walk away, also about a million creperies (more... More

The hotel is conveniently located within the city walls very close to most of the bars & restaurants. Our room was located in the middle of the building so it was quiet. Check in was quick & efficient as we had booked Online. The staff spoke good English as you would expect. The room was quite small, with a separate... More

We stayed at l'Univers hotel in St Malo for three nights after a week in Normandy. I wasn't prepared for how stunningly beautiful St Malo is and I fell in love with the place immediately. L'Univers hotel is on one side of a beautiful square inside Intra Muros, packed full of charm and character and opposite the artists stalls where... More

We went for a weekend break lasting 4 days, flying into Dinard. St. Malo is a memorable place with restaurants to spare and is full of interest, charm and history. We stayed at the hotel L'Univers which is an old hotel but stacked with French charm and the best bar in France. L'Univers isn't a modern four star hotel so... More

There was a party in the next room with people coming and going all night banging doors and talking loudly, eventually we couldn't take anymore and went to complain to reception at 5.30 am . An hour later the noise stopped. We overslept not getting to sleep before 7 am and missed our train to Paris, we explained all of... More

A great end to our holiday staying at this hotel. A great location and a busy, buzzing atmosphere. Very helpful staff and a lovely bar to have a drink before sampling the many restaurants nearby. The ramparts are well worth a walk which takes about 40 minutes or so and you can ascent and descent right near the hotel. Artists... More

We loved our stay at this hotel... The location was the best thing! And the cocktails in the bar were outstanding and not over priced - the room was quite basic and tiny TV but we didn't spend much time in the room - we were in the town or on the beach and the location can't be beaten...

Yet again having been let off the metaphorical leash, (I dislike line-dancing and my wife hates sea crossings) so my friend and I visit St Malo each June and we have a few days misbehaving, eating, drinking and ogling. Brittany Ferries have a deal that cannot be beaten and as a result I decided to take the plunge and take... More
