About the Hotel
Why We Love This Hotel
- This 4-star hotel is housed in a former Jesuit monastery described as "historic and atmospheric" by The Daily Telegraph
- Arras's historic centre is less than 10 minutes' walk away
- The Le Clusius restaurant serves traditional French cuisine with a seasonal tasting menu
Najeti Hôtel de l'Univers is a converted 17th-century Jesuit monastery near the centre of Arras, less than 10 minutes' walk from the town's "pair of beautiful, arcaded squares" (The Daily Telegraph): the Place des Héros and the Grand Place. Visit the former to see Arras Town Hall and its 75-metre-high bell tower.
Citadelle d'Arras, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, and the Carrière Wellington, a former underground quarry that was part of a network of tunnels used by Allied forces during the First World War, are a 20-minute walk from the hotel.
The Le Clusius restaurant has exposed brick and limestone walls and serves traditional French cuisine with a seasonal tasting menu. It also has an outdoor terrace.
Rooms are invidually decorated, and "many have a notable swagger, with antique furniture and heavy curtains held back by extravagant tassels", says The Daily Telegraph. There is free Wi-Fi.
