Reviewed 26 July 2016

This is a basic a/c hotel. Good location, nice patio, clean and comfortable. The staff is very friendly and helpful. Free WIFI. Breakfast and dinner are Very good. Near by a river and a spa. We enjoyed it very much.

The hotel is a bit dated but it's clean and cosy. There aren't many plugs and the one near the bed didn't work with any of my devices but the breakfast, a/c and wi-fi are free, the location is great and you can use the swimming pool.

The room was basic, only just clean and lacking basic amenities, no hairdryer etc Breakfast was meagre and a notice in the breakfast room forbids any removal of food, with waiting staff almost like security guards keeping an eye that this did not happen. No bar inside hotel, intact interior looked like a 70's shopping centre, complete with triffids!

We had a great stay in Hotel Universal. We only payed 40eur because it was low season, and for that value the hotel is excelent! The decoration was a bit old, but very cosy. We highly recommend it!
