This hotel is charming and full of character. It is in the corner of a busy square surrounded by restaurants and cafes but right next to the ramparts and sea although it doesn't have a sea view. Our room was adequate with a large bathroom. It was a cold weekend but the room was warm and comfortable and had British... More

Situated just within the city walls, a very short walk from the tourist office and buses. A very helpful receptionist, clean and comfortable room, very quiet. An old building, so the lift is very small, but the plumbing very modern and efficient. Excellent breakfast, no other meals in the hotel, but a short walk to the good Jacques Cartier restaurant,...

We used this as a base to visit Mont Saint Michel and was suprised at the location and how close it is to a very pretty town. The hotel is basic and has no aircon so could be a bit warm in the high season and as a tip try and get a room away from the stairway and lifts... More

Had a short break here, 3 nights. Myself and two children had a double room with put up bed added. The room was lovely, clean and comfortable. Everything worked well, and the staff were extremely friendly and helpful. Breakfast was included in a very reasonable price and the choice of food was excellent. Location wise, the hotel is perfect for... More

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
