4 of 5 stars Reviewed 3 days ago NEW

We arrived without a reservation, and chose a room on the front - large, high ceiling, modern and well appointed. It had a balcony looking over the square. (Initially I was worried about the noise, but needn't have - good double glazing - we slept soundly) Decor, modern and uncluttered - really liked it. We didn't eat at the hotel,... More

We were there just 2 months after the reopening, and the hotel is now modern, stylish and really confortable. Located in the pure centre of Clermond-Ferrand is a really interesting option to stay. Also the restaurant provides good quality food and drinks.

If you are looking for a modern style hotel, anonymous but with facilities, forget it. It's an oldish hotel with old fittings and to be honest you'll find yourself wanting a bit more. It's got creaky floors and everything's a bit tired. BUT, and it's a big but, it's friendly, warm, well priced, brilliantly located for the tram and the... More

If you are into carrying your luggages up and down stairs (stairs to get to the reception, stairs to get to the elevator, elevator stops between floors) while the staff looks at you, then this is the place for you. The room was okay but forget about the hair dryer unless you are bold!

So you are going to Clermont-Ferrand and have heard bad things about this hotel? Don't fret. This hotel is actually quite fine. There is a wide range of rooms. You may end up with a tiny room atop a spiral staircase or a large room with a balcony. Whatever you end up in, remember, it is a place to shower... More

This is one of the worst hotels I stayed in, never again. Very run down, damp and smells of must.

Fairly good service, but not a very nice hotel. Great location on the Place de Jaude. 5/10

Normal doubles are small with very small shower cubicles. Rooms with two double beds and bath are a good size and are only marginally more expensive - well worth the extra. Common areas smell quite bad. Access to the hotel by car is very difficult and you have to park in the local underground car park - paying normal rates.... More

This hotel is an older building. Elevators are very small and sometimes you must carry your bags up or down a half flight of stairs. Room was very nice and had an outstanding view of the Place de Jaude. Tram stop right in front. Hotel restaurant has the traditional sidewalk seating as well as inside and the food was good... More
