    Nice hotel with a stylishly renovated lobby area, centrally located in walking distance to the city centre. The staff willingly, and at no extra cost let us have our car in the hotel garage many hours past the checkout time the day we left! :-)

    The airconditioning unit in out room was rather noisy, and the thermostat wasn't working properly. It was either on or off, and consequently the room was freezing cold in the morning.

    Met all our expectations and it even surprised us by being a proper hotel for the price that we paid..

    A little old (furniture, bathroom etc.)

    Location is very good. Located in a business street. Near Cathedral. In the Cathedral, you take a bus directly to the Palace.

    the elevator is located between two floors so it is not so convenient if you have heavy luggage. The staff recommended a flamingo show and it was very disappointed compared to the performance in Seville and the price was very high . It was said there would be some food but actually there was only one welcome drink.

    Free internet and location in the central, we can walk to alhambra and access to good food...

    Really nice staff. Very good price. Lovely roof terrace reasonably priced breakfast. Nice design and free Wifi was a great 'plus'. Perfect place for a short stopover when travelling with children or as a group.

    Convenience...easy to find

    Clean rooms. Cheap and good breakfast at the teracce at the 6th floor.

    The wireless Internet was not working in the room, but it was an Internet access at the public area (TV hall).

    Very nice hotel in very busy area. Conveniently located to many shops. Safe area. Just leave your car in their underground parking garage and use the bus at Plaza Nueva ( a short walk from Hotel Universal) to see all the sights. Great bus transportation. Hotel staff was very friendly and very helpful when checking in.

  • Single
    6.2

    A little bit old futniture and bathroom but the room was big and clean. Hotel position was good. Unbeatable value for money.

    The rooms, I guess all of them, are a little bit noisy because of thin walls.

    Location, price and friendly helpful staff

    The hotel is located right in the city centre. Very easy to locate. garage parking is opposite and very convenient. The staff were very welcoming and helpful. The room was a good size and well equipped. We will return again!

    location, secure parking, very helpful man at the reception

  • Older travelers
    9.4

    Staff were exceptionally friendly, helpful and efficient. Me particularly liked the rooftop café with attractive views. Food, drink and service there were all excellent and prices are very competitive. Location of hotel near Cathedral, BibRambla Square and bus routes was very convenient. Within 30 minutes stroll of Albaicín and Alhambra. Beds very comfortable and room quiet.

    Lavatory in the bathroom, though adequate and clean was in a cramped position. Toilet roll holder needs re-positioning to give a bit more knee room!
