We stayed here in September for three nights and had a great time. Our room was clean and spacious with a balcony. The first night was wet so we thought we would stay in the hotel for dinner. It was a buffet at 8 Euro a head. Normally hate buffet s but thought this was tasty,with great choice and amazing... More

We stayed at the Univers, using Roses as our base for travelling around the area. The location was good. The hotel was satisfactory and reasonably priced. It was clean, staff was pleasant, breakfast was good. They had a very nice pool area and evening entertainment. Good for budget conscious families and travellers. On the down side, our room was a...

Stayed here for 1 week in from 29th June 2013. Very pleasant hotel with all the basic needs you would expect from a Spanish 3 star hotel. Breakfast was ok. Fair choice to cater for most tastes. Evening meal was ok too. About what I expect from a hotel like this. Rooms are good but make sure you take a... More

This hotel offers real value for money. Our room was clean although a little cramped due the single bed along side the double. We had a balcony with afternoon sun, a very acceptable bathroom and a modern TV and wifi in the room. No fridge or hairdryer, but this was not a worry for us. The location right opposite the... More

To start positive: the bed was good. Also a good bathroom, although they could place the toilet in a better place, than exactly behind the door. It's an old hotel. One lift only goes down when there are enough people inside (very strange?). Cleanliness: you can find everywhere you look hair of people on the ground (and also of dogs,... More

We didn't prebook a hotel and arrived in Roses around 5 pm on a long weekend (no one told us about this Catalan holiday) and so we ran out of options. Yes, they had some rooms left. From the road, it didn't look too bad but inside was another story. Dated is one word to describe it. Even the lobby... More

Just returned from the hotel. Yes! the location is lovely and the overall price of the hotel reasonable. However, in all the hotels i have ever stayed in i have never been so sick of the food. It was more or less the same food every night, perhaps alternating the meat dishes. No imagination was ever used. The sweet dishes... More
