Hôtel de l'Univers

Hotel in Arras

Ensconced in a 16th-century former Jesuit monastery, this fashionable inn is arrayed in a horseshoe shape around a quiet neoclassical courtyard. Heavy drapes, tassels and bedspreads give the 38 spacious rooms an elegant feel.

There's just one family room so be sure to book. Reserve ahead too for courtyard parking (€13) as spaces are limited.
