I volunteer in a local expat club and we used this hotel as part of a two day trip to Granada, we had 10 rooms all of which were fine, some did overlook the internal courtyards but for one night this in not a problem and means an even more peaceful night. The beds were amazing all memory foam and... More

A clean modern hotel in the City centre. Very basic but a comfortable bed and a quiet good nights sleep. Menu and bar are token and you will choose to eat out. There was a courtesy fridge in the room but then the snacks are always overpriced so did not use it. The bedroom looked over a lightwell but better... More

what should you know about the Hotel Universal? The location is easy to find and offers parking. The room was spacious and had a super comfortable memory foam bed...which was divine after a day walking. The airconditioning worked well. The hotel offers free WIFI. There is a rooftop bar/lounge that serves drinks and snacks. Mostly you should know that this... More

Despite being by the busy main road, the room was completely silent at night - thanks to very effective double glazing. The beds were comfortable too, and the cafeteria on the 6th floor was perfect - with an excellent outside area from which you could just see the corner of the Alhambra. Very grand and imposing entrance with enough room... More

Checked into here because the hotel we had booked was just too far from the centre. Booked on internet from first hotel and turned up ten minutes later. Great location. On a city break, you want to be right in the centre and this is there. Spent little time in the hotel, but found it to be clean and the... More

I enjoyed this hotel. Its situation is perfect. The parking is just in front of it. Recogidas street is wonderful. The big problem is the WiFi. It didnt work the second day. Anyway I recomend this hotel in one of the prettiest city I have ever visited.

My first impression of the place was the location was pretty good, located on a shopping street with nice views of the Sierra Nevada (I think) overlooking that street. The staff were quite friendly at first, but on the second morning when we tried to enquire about cycling tours etc, the receptionist insisted he could not help us search online... More

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
