Hotel Universel près de l'Université Laval
December 10, 2014

Je n'ai pas vraiment aimé ma chambre car la salle de bain sentait vraiment la vieille cigarette. Je l'ai dit à la réceptionniste et elle m'a proposée de changer de chambre, mais il était tard et j'étais vraiment fatiguée. Selon moi le problème aurait dû être réglé avant que j'arrive (lorsque la femme de chambre a nettoyé la chambre...).

This is a renovated older hotel that received a facelift that is wonderful, three story spa and pool area is wonderful after a day in the cold, the whirlpool with warm waterfall spouts is great. For the price, great hotel; staff is friendly, good food in the attached restaurant

Light bulb was dead and had to be changed. The bath had mould on the walls as well as cracked tiles. For a short stay, one hardly want to call the reception to tend to a light bulb. For the price the breakfast should have been included.

I stayed Hotel Universial for attending ICCE2014, which was held in Laval Univ. The hotel office workers were kind for me as I asked some questions and helps. It was comfy to attend that conference from Hotel within 10 minutes walks. My colleagues and I used a bus from hotel to old town within 20 minutes distance by bus. I recommend to stay there with reasonable budget prices.

Very comfortable bed and spacious room but room hot - air con not the best. Did not have time to use - but pool/spa area looked great. Not bothered by roadworks outside as on a coach trip and not driving for myself. However- remember bulk of construction occurs during the all to brief summer (no snow then!)

This run-down motel is dark, musty, stinky, and had bug carcasses in the beds.
