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.

Huge room, new and clean, inside the walls, for a great price on low season. Good ambient bar in front, good service, easy to park (again, it was low season), and perfect to explore the walls walking.

Stayed for 2 nights on our mini-cruise from Plymouth to St.Malo. Still very French, which is great. Wi-Fi is very hit and miss but free. Will be back same time next year. The goldfish in the Breakfast room is still on his own but they more tanks and lot more fish. Breakfast is French basic but very acceptable. They do... More
