This 17th-century Jesuit monastery now sees service as a 4-star hotel, and restaurant. It is excellent, and, being in an impasse side street, is away from traffic noise, guaranteeing a good night's sleep. The bed was very comfortable, too. Our room was small-ish, and that's a comment I've noted by others, but it's all very warm and cosy, and with...

My friends and I recently did a self-styled battlefields tour of northern France and Normandy and our first stop in France was Arras (after spending the day in Ypres, Belgium). We chose the Hotel de l'Univers because of its central location ... and because the building looked rustic and charming on their website. Happily, they lived up to their website....

our twin room was clean and well decorated, slight quibble that there was little storage space apart from wardrobe and very small bedside drawers. We had evening meals which were very good, although choice was limited, menu the same every night except for dish of the day.

We had read many of the reviews and were quite worried that this hotel might not be a great place to stay, but it was lovely and some of the reviews don't reflect how nice this hotel is. The staff were very friendly, our room although small was very well decorated and the bathroom was new and very clean. We...

We stayed here for two nights and overall were quite satisfied. Having travelled in Europe a number of times, we've come to accept things we would not be pleased with in America. We had a room on the first floor. There was a mixup in our reservation and they kindly gave us a junior suite. This was very well appointed....

We have stayed here many times, mainly when it was a Best Western, and we feel that standards have slipped a bit. The room was a good size, as was the bathroom, but we felt that the bathroom could do with updating(particularly the loo!). It was very hot at night, and it would have been nice to have a fan...

Good room, spacious,clean and comfortable, bijou but good modern bathroom. Kettle and tea/coffee available but only one (mint) tea and 2 coffee sachets, one milk. Dinner - varied menu, high standard of food. Menu also offers vegetarian options - rare in France! Staff very helpful, friendly and efficient. Location - very central in Arras, with parking (best to reserve a...

I stayed for 2 nights with a group on a full board basis. The room was clean but very small. The welcome at the hotel was only about the parking charges. No smiles, no welcome or interest in our large group. Dinner was very average. On the second night there was only one waiter for a group of 45 people!...

My wife and I have stayed here many times, the most recent was for her birthday. I reserved a more expensive room (luxe) which promised a few extras such as slippers and a dressing gown; in addition I ordered flowers. On arrival we had to wait a while at reception whilst a phone call was answered, then we received the...

My wife and I had a great time, beautiful room, excellent customer service and a wonderful restaurant for breakfast and dinner. Worth paying extra for the car parking. Close to grand place but hotel quiet which is good for restful sleep. Check in and out was so professional.
