“Hotel Universal is finally back!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 12, 2014

We are particularly fond of this hotel, where in the past we have been celebrating our wedding and several important family anniversaries.... Then, the hotel was closed for renovation, and remained closed for several years. Therefore it was a nice surprise to discover in september that the refurbished hotel was operating again. I like very much the restoration: the building is a liberty-style villa, and they kept the historic romantic atmosphere, but at the same time made the internal decor simplier and lighter than before. The position is spectacular, 2 meters from the sea, I would say the best one in Livorno. There is plenty of parking space, a nice outdoor swimming pool, a terrace facing the sea, the same spectacular dining room where we celebrated our wedding many years ago and where now they serve breakfast. Rooms are furnished in a contemporary style, and of course everything is brand new and functional. The staff is very helpful, the director is the young son of the old couple which was running the hotel before renovation. The quality/price ratio is very good: in september the cost of the double room was 110 euros per night including breakfast, free wi-fi , free parking and free use of mini-bar in the room. Consider that if you are not travelling by car, the hotel is not in the center of the town: it is located 5 km from the harbor and 6-7 km from the main square. We highly recommend this hotel if you love quiet charming hotels.
