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.

We stayed 2 nights on a demi-pension basis via Great Escapes on the hottest weekend of the year. Arriving on the Friday in 36C heat we were a little disappointed that even the public areas were not air conditioned. That said, it was still much cooler inside than out, although our otherwise very pleasant room on the first floor was...

I was glad that I chose the Univers Hotel instead of the higher rated Ibis, Mercure or Holiday Inn. Furthermore it's much closer to the old part of town. The hotel has much more charm because it's in an old Jesuit monastery (that said, I'm sure a large portion had to be rebuilt after the war). I had room 102...
