The TGV back to Rotterdam left the next morning. My holidays on the sailing boat were over, and I needed a place to stay. What a nice surprise that Hotel l'Universe had a single room available at this short notice. On the edge of the intra muros and a short walk to the TGV station

Absolutely charming hotel just inside the city wall. Near enough to the gate that dragging luggage in isn't a nightmare, but in the corner near the ocean wall so no traffic noise. Staff were all immensely helpful and personable. We were here with a school tour from Australia, and the staff was extremely accommodating, offering us use of the breakfast... More

We had a view of the castle from our room, but with the windows shut there was no noise even though it was in a busy area. The bed was good and the room was very spacious with a bathroom with bath and shower. Breakfast in the morning was average, but what you would expect for the price really. I... More

Location is excellent and the lady at reception was very kind and helpful. The lift was tiny, just about big enough for two adults and one, max two children. Our 'non smoking' room smells very strongly of stale cigarettes. This is very unpleasant and the hotel should sort it out as this kind of smell is not acceptable for many... More

This hotel is just inside the walled town close to the Hotel de Ville. We were extremely lucky to find a car parking space just around the corner from the hotel, generally would recommend parking outside the walls, its not far from the Univers. The hotel is in a square with other hotels and restaurants, would suggest you book as... More

This is an older hotel with many renovations. We had an excellent view of the medieval walled city. Our bathroom was one of the largest we've experienced in France and had a heated towel rack. Apparently Europeans do not use, nor offer wash clothes. The showers can be slippery so watch your footing. No microwave, no mini refrigerator and no... More

The staff was helpful, the nightlife was jumping, and the room was quiet. Price was also fair. Biggest issue was parking. Don't park inside the city walls. Knowing this ahead of time would have helped.

We arrived in Saint Malo via P&O ferry from uk as foot passenger, so it was a 15-20 mins walk from the port to the hotel which was located in the square. We arrived at 6am and the room was not ready until 3pm, but we were able to relax in the lobby and leave our luggage in the store... More

We stayed for two nights as part of a large group of students from the United States. It was a very quaint hotel in a great city. We learned a lot about the area and history of St. Malo, and it was fascinating! There are a number of bars and cafes all over (including in the hotel itself) that are... More

We first visited this hotel so long ago that my review has dropped off the bottom the TripAdvisor list. Then, as now, the welcome and the care was professional and always polite, but not fussy. Rooms were eccentrically shaped and decorated and we were delighted (really) to find the imprint of an iron on the carpet, just where the water... More
