Very friendly staff who also spoke good english. Car parking avaiable across the road from the hotel. Allowed to bring our dog. Very reasonable room rates offering value for money.. Very good situation for town, shops, Alhambra Palace, etc. Would stay there again.

This is the second time I have stayed in this hotel, the first time we had a much nicer room, this time the room really needed some updating and repairing (light switches broken etc). Saying that, it was clean enough and good enough for a short break. The location outweighs the bad points so I would certainly stay here again....

Hotel noisy and dirty, I found hair on my bed. The staff is very rude and kicks the customer out of the hotel if they do not leave exactly at 12 o'clock. I do not recommend it in any aspect. It was the worst hotel I"ve been in all the trip.

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...

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 The rooms are a bit outdated.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....

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...
