    Superb location for walks in the city. Two sets of double glazed windows completely isolates from the rather noisy street. Nice cafeteria at top floor with a view to Sierra Nevada. Very friendly and helpful staff. Secure parking cellar across the street.

    Good

    city center, 5 minute walk from the airport (blue bus) drop off point, 5 minute walk to the bus stop which takes you to AlHambra, safe, helpful staff, clean room, fair price. Budget hotel.

    Very small single room, hardly any place to keep luggage. Very noisy as there is no sound proofing. Windows for the rooms open in a weird cylinder-like area which adds to the noise as it echoes. Internet connection was very weak in the rooms.

    Location was really good. You could reach everywhere by walking.

    The room was interior and hence dark.

    The staff is very friendly, and the hotel offers paid parking.

    The colour of the room and the small bathroom. The carpet on the corridors looks very old. The mattress is too soft.

    Superb

    The hotel is basic but very good value for the money. It is very central and puts all Granada within walking distance. The Alhambra and environs is within walking distance but up steep inclines so a taxi is a good cheap way to get there. The rooms (we had two singles) were small but clean each having it's own bathroom. Fairly basic but that's all we need for a city tour as we only tend to sleep and wash in our room, we don't spend much time there. The rooms were cleaned properly every day fresh towels provided. If you travel by car (using satnav) the hotel is situated on a main road but the signage will try to direct you off the block before the hotel as the road becomes buses and taxis only. You need to ignore these signs as the parking is an underground facility directly opposite the hotel.

    Superb

    Location and value for price paid. Breakfast inclusive also a great plus.

    Parking was confusing on arrival. Had to get the bellman to park the car for us. When retrieving it at check out, had to hunt for the car, which was parked three levels below ground. Also one ramp for entrance and exit made it risky, particularly when someone insisted upon entering when I was already halfway up the ramp. Also, hotel is on a traffic- restricted street, so we did not initally know we could drive right up to it despite the road-restrictive signage.

    - Localization was very good in the centre (30 minutes from Alhambra) 5 minutes to Cathedral) - nice parking area (personnel will park your car) - taxi from hotel to Alhambra 4,60 Euro (the best choice if you visit it at 8:30) - bus number 30 to Alhambra 5 minutes walk to bus stop

    - Personnel was not very friendly, not speaking English very good, sometimes you feel like intruder - no wi-fi connection at all (even in reception) you have to use internet kiosk which wasn't the best as well - even if they park you car at arrival, they are not doing it again when you leave hotel. Parking area is huge, so finding your car is a challenge (elevator to lower floors only with a key) - rooms with a view to internal area (you feel like in a chimney) better not open your windows if you do not wish to get depressed

    Superb

    It was my second time at the Universal. Receptionists and waiters were very kind and gentle. The hotel is in a very good position, close to the Cathedral and to the Capilla real. It's only 20/25 minute walk far from the Alhambra and to Albayzin quarter too. Our room and the bathroom were wide and clean and our bed absolutly confortable.

    Comfortable hotel with good facilities including free internet. Pleasant staff and excellent location. The cathedral is five minutes away and close to it a lovely square, Bib-Ramblas, with loads of good eating places.
