10/10 Exceptional

Great location and quality hotel
Although it was after the summer season we were surprised how quiet the hotel and area was. The Universal in made up to two differently designed parts joined by a central lobby and uppper floor restaurant so it has different lifts going to different parts. Staff were really friendly and always very helpful. There is an underground garage (chargeable), as well as street parking but we had our car parked in the sister hotel across the side street. There are not many restaurants to eat at close by other than the hotel but a short drive takes you up to the marina / harbour area and centre of Cervia where there is a far wider choice. The hotel is a great central location for travelling around the area as well as being right across from the beach but it does not have any private area although ample options exist. Swimming pool is heated and was fantastic, as was the jaccuzi. Again ample loungers by the pool and umbrellas for shade. We were there with breakfast included which again was extensive and covered every option - really impressive. Rooms were smaller than some but typical of area and for age of hotel.No room safe and limited english TV channels if that is required. All in all an excellent Italian rated 4 star hotel which I would consider returning to if I was in the area.

2/10 Poor

4 stelle non meritate
Hotel a 4 stelle che dovrebbe averne 3 (o forse 2) Ero in viaggio per lavoro e tutte le sere si sentiva musica fino a tarda notte. La mia camera non era così bella, molto vecchia con apertura della doccia difettosa. Ho consumato al mini bar e il giorno dopo non è stato neanche fatto il refill, sono tornata la sera e non c’era neanche un po’ d’acqua. Al check out, nonostante ero di fretta (ero lì per lavoro non in vacanza come probabilmente gli altri clienti), mi hanno fatto aspettare 20 minuti per avere la ricevuta della tassa di soggiorno. Ciliegina sulla torta, ho chiesto di poter lasciare la macchina nel loro garage (garage vuoto), ma mi hanno detto che per lasciare la macchina altre 2h avrebbero applicato la tariffa giornaliera

Non e’un 4 stelle
Un 4 stelle che assomiglia molto ad un 3 stelle scadente.Camere minuscole e molto datate. Personale rumeno/moldavo low cost con conseguenze sul servizio ai tavoli pessimo. Unica nota positiva la colazione. Non ci siamo. Prezzo alto per il servizio offerto
