This hotel is situated bang in the centre, within walking distance of everywhere pretty much, and was refurbished in 2008, while clean and comfortable enough, the building lacks tender loving care. As it was March and cold at night the Air Conditioning was off, so the room was a constant 26C... You should be aware that all but 3 rooms... More

Straight from the Autovia to the hotel, with unloading space infront. Then the parking is not 3 streets away, as sometimes is the case, but actually across from the hotel. Though it is rather a challenge to park a bigger car in such an urban parking garage, with narrow spaces and curves. Room was clean and modern. But indeed noisy.... More

The best thing about this hotel is central location with available parking and helpful staff. The worst thing is paper thin walls, so you basically hear all the conversation, snoring and toilet use from another room. At least it doesn't cost much.

Hotel Universal is conveniently located for Granada town centre with all shops, restaurants, bars and other amenities nearby. It's only a 20-min brisk walk to the Alhambra! Staff was very friendly and happy to help whenever we asked them for directions etc. We also liked the mini-bar, wi-fi facilities and the price of our stay in this hotel! Our room... More

If all you want when travelling is a clean bedroom and bathroom near the centre of Granada, you may want to consider this. But do not expect anything else. What is laughingly described as "continental breakfast" consists of: a cup of tea/coffee, half a glass of orange juice, one piece of toast with pre-spread jam, and a cold croissant, for... More

Spent three nights in this hotel with my family (four people in total). The location of this hotel is so central we did not use the car or public transport, other than the tourist bus, the whole time we were there. The people are friendly, the hopping is amazing and you can immerse yourself in the history of the place... More

I kept changing my mind about this hotel, so I'll try and review this with the pros and cons. Good points: The location is excellent, near to everything. The man on reception was fantastic and very helpful. The car park is just opposite the hotel and reasonable for the centre of Granada (15€) The breakfast is not buffet and is... More

I have stayed in this hotel on numerous occasions as I find the close proximity to the City centre very good. Last time we travelled by train from Almeria and then caught a taxi to the hotel. There is a very good car park and the staff are quite happy to park your car and retrieve it on departure from... More

I spent two nights at this hotel in October 2011. I have no special impression of it, but it was clean, the staff very friendly and receptionists speak English, if it's important for you. Maybe I was lucky, but I didn't suffer from any noise. I think< it's a good decision for this price. Of course, the room was rather... More
