The grandeur of the Citadel is one of the first things you see when arriving by ferry to the Belle Isle, and staying in this beautifully renovated fortress is an absolute must if you want to soak up its charm and historic ambiance. The friendly staff ensure that your stay and needs are efficiently met with grace and ease. We... More

Just returned from a wonderful holiday in this Citadelle. The rooms are delightfully decadent, spacious and tastefully decorated befitting this 1500s citadel (tip: ask for a sea view), the staff incredibly friendly and helpful. It's the perfect base to explore Palais and the rest of belle ile, just a couple of minutes walk to the centre of everything. We were... More

I spent one night in this hotel with my partner: this night was a gift we received. Our stay there will stay in our memories for a long long time: we will never forget the situation of the hotel, inside the historical Citadelle Vauban of Le Palais. It was a delight to visit the site, and its museum at our... More

We stayed a couple of days in this amazing and unique place! The 2 negative points: 1/ over priced for sure! 2/ the service not at the level of the price e.g. our pick-up at the harbor was just forgotten so we had to make it on foot and hotel doesn't organize any bicycle or car rental. The breakfast room... More

Our stay at Citadelle Vauban was unforgettable. We cannot recommend it enough. The location is hard to beat : spread out over ten hectares, surrounded by landscaped gardens, overlooking the harbor of Le Palais , the Citadelle embodies a thousand years of history of Belle Ile en mer. Founded in the Middle Ages and rebuilt by the famous architect Vauban... More

We only spent one night at La Citadelle Vauban but we really felt welcome. The hotel sent a shuttle to pick us up at our arrival to the harbor and at 11am the room was already ready for us. They made our reservation for the restaurant for the evening. The next day they kept our luggages and delivered them to... More

Stayed for one night in this fine quality hotel, wished my visit was longer. The staff were first class and the restaurant was an experience in itself. Can praise highly enough.
