My husband and I stayed there in mid December 2012. We drove from Barcelona and parking in Valencia was next to impossible. There are free parking by the train station but you have to walk back to the city center which takes 10-15 minutes. It was difficult to find Pension Universal as the sign was way up on the building and it took more than half an hour for us to go round and around to find it. It is located on the 2nd or 3rd floor and it is pretty secured as the pension front door remains locked all day. The reception was nice and helpful but he does not speak a lot of English. The room was a bit small, floor was dusty and everything could be cleaner but it was ok for an overnight stay. As the photos show, there is a sink with a mirror in the room and a metal rack for clothing. There is extra blanket also. The bathroom and separate shower room are clean and has plenty of hot water. Location is very close to the market and the main square. As the floor is not carpeted at all throughout, sounds and noises bounce around so when a guest opens or closes a door, you could hear it. Likewise, when someone is using the shower, you could hear it as well. Overall, it is not bad for the price.
