Hotel Universo has modern rooms albeit the wallpaper is perhaps a little too °funky° and bright but it gives it character. The bathroom was a little small with the shower and the shower curtain leaving little to be desired. The curtain sticks to you when your showering and makes the floor all wet but perhaps this ties in with the °funky° theme.
Due to the number of thefts of airconditioning controllers, the concierge will control the aircon in the rooms. If you want to change the temperature, you will need to make a request to the front desk.
The breakfast is the best we have had in Italy. Served on the 1st floor, the selection of yoghurt, cereal, fruit (green apples), fruit juice and baguettes is sensationally fullfilling. The (upon request) expresso is also of exceptional quality.
If you need the internet, the hotel does have apple macs and charge Euro 3 for 30 mins or 5 euràs for 24 hours (yes, thats right 24 hours - bargain!) They dont have a printer but you can send them an email and they will print for you.
Overall good, but did miss some key touches i.e. small bathroom with a bad curtain shower, a bed on wheels which can move around a bit and cleaners who do not replace bathroom amenities i.e. soap, toilet paper etc.
