We had a wonderful stay there for one night. The location is perfect. The staff were very friendly and courteous. We had a problem with our hot water and they went out of their way to solve this and even gave us complimentary breakfast the next morning. I will recommend this hotel to anybody

This charming hotel in Saint-Malo, Le Palais, is located in the intra-muros historic centre, just minutes walk from the …More
This is a cheap hotel in a great location. Rooms are relatively small and the decor isn't great, but it is in the walls of the old town, and you can't beat it for the price. I went with a friend so we weren't in the room much and it did the job for us. Perhaps wouldn't recommend for a romantic getaway unless you like the cheap and cheerful options!
Great little old town with fantastic cafes, bakeries & lots of set menus in local restaurants to take advantage of, definately try the kouign-amann pastries.... wow!! sweet buttery little delights! also indulge in the Cidre (ciders) in the bars these are really delicious. Definately recommend a trip to Jersey for the day (if you havent already been)... its cheap and can be booked at the Condor ferry terminal just 15mins walk from the old town (intra-murros) of St Malo. Dinard is worth a short bus trip over the old power station road bridge (Barrage de la Rance), have a walk along the promenade there and try some Mulles and Frites for lunch, you can get a ferry back to St malo from Dinard (on the point bayside promenade facing St Malo). I would reccomend a 4 night stay in St Malo but you could probably enjoy the place and see plenty if you go for a long weekend. St Malo is also a great place for windsurfing and water sports if thats your thing.
Perfect for a long weekend, staff absolutely so friendly and did not bother us. Rooms cleaned to perfection, great spot with having a balcony and listening to the music in the evening & on check out they allowed us to keep our room until later on - definitely will be back very soon !!!
Two day stay, re-visiting this hotel & the buzz of St Malo
Ideal location for short stay--especially if no car. The hotel is a focus of activity within the walls. All the attractions are just outside the hotel door.and within walking distance.
Access to the hotel by car is difficult (streets are pedestrianised) & there is little or no parking by the hotel.& no free parking between 9.00am-8.00pm
Parking in general is a nightmare in St Malo with NO free daytime parking close to the walls (Nearest free parking to the hotel is 3-400yds away, if lucky) All car parks are extremely busy during peak season.

Standing on Châteaubriand square, in the heart of the Corsair town and very close to the sea, the Hotel De L'Univers enjoys …More
lovely old hotel which has been renovated. From our room we could see the beach, and part of the square where the artists set up. There was a band on while we were there which we thoroughly enjoyed but if you enjoy peace and quiet you would be best to ask for a room towards the back of the hotel.
The only poor comment that i have is that the breakfast and breakfast service were the worst that we had encountered during our trip. Pastries and bread were rather stale, selection poor and service non existent.
