We had everything we needed. Great location. In city center. Close to many attractions and public transportation. Nice quiet lounge. Nice clean room. Had breakfast in the rooftop restaurant. This was very handy.

Stayed for 3 nights. Fantastic value for money ! Great location for everything. Great staff who can't do enough for you. Spotlessly clean. Great cafe/bar on 6th floor. Had breakfast there - the orange juice really is freshly squeezed ! Also great for a nightcap. As far as parking is concerned - just park up in front of hotel and... More

Hotel Universal is a threestars hotel in the center of Granada, near the Alhambra. Parking is difficult, on the other side of the street and you pay 15 euro's a day. The rooms are a bit outdated. It's a pity that the hotel isn't quiet at all. There's no noise from the street, but from the cafe on the rooftop.... More

I stayed in this hotel for one right recently when visiting Granada for the weekend. It was easy to find, with its central location in the city centre. I arrived before check in time but the reception staff offered to store my bags so I could get out and start exploring! There is free wifi throughout the hotel which is... More

The rooms are too basic for a 3*, but are clean. Part of amenities are air co, free wifi, safe, fridge. Our room had 2 windows facing interior court, facing other windows. Not very comfortable. The bed was not very comfortable and rooms and corridor smelled way too much cigarette. I recommend this hotel if you have a deal as... More

This hotel exceeded my expectations. We only stayed one night but it was a pleasure in every way, staff at reception kind. The room is clean and equipped with all the modern amenities of a proper hotel room. Wifi reliable, and location is right in the center of downtown Granada. This room had two windows facing to two court yards,... More

It is what it is, not aspiring to be the ultimate grand scale. But, its clean, nice room, friendly service and made us perfectly happy with location, rooms and service. Recommended. Supplies parkering, ac in the rooms and very centrally located.

Drove to the Universal from Alicante, easy to find, Sat Nav direct to the door. Parking was opposite in underground car park, guided in by porter. Reception was pleasant and directed to our rooms, my wife and her mum in a neat double room, myself in a fairly small but ok single at opposite end of corridor. The walls are... More

The best thing about this Hotel was the privately own cafeteria 'The Azotea' in the six floor, all the family loved the variety, convenience and quality of the food. The Hotel itself has a great location, the rooms were clean and okay. We had a problem with the shower head which would not stay in place. It is a 3... More
