Clean and comfortable , easy to find, located within easy walking distance to all Vichy has to offer. The room was big enough to accomodate three persons, the wifi connection was the only downside and just was not worth the bother. It seemed not to allow simultaneous usage of more than one device in the room. Street parking was easy... More

Room for 2 adults & 2 children is very good. At least it's absolutely fine for 3 people. Very nice bathroom, large space, good design, looks new and fresh. Stuff is extremely friendly and helpful. Good breakfast which I would call 'typical French +'. Located in the city centre, close to all attractions yet on a quiet street.

Really sorry that I didn't review this hotel last year, because we stayed there in May 2013. The Arverna is a small hotel located in a quiet street. The owners are lovely people (they even waited for us to arrive at 11 pm) and try to make your stay enjoyable the best they can, providing information on where to eat... More

We stayed at the hotel on the way to the south of France it is very conveniently placed and there was no problem finding metered parking on the street. However, they do offer garage parking at 8 euros, but it only cost 2 euros to park right outsi the hotel. The couple who run the hotel are very welcoming and... More

Once we found it we experienced a warm reception, help with our luggage to a spacious room with bath and balcony. There was plenty of hanging space, so a longer stay would have been a comfortable one. We were given good personal advice on where to dine, in addition to the booklet provided on arrival. The directions given on google... More

We stayed a night on our way to Toulouse, now with a 11 month old we can't make the long trip all in one go. First time in Vichy a small town, with a cute downtown. The hotel is very conveniently located right in the heart of downtown but on a quiet street. We arrived early (12:00) because it was... More

We booked this as an overnight stay between Brussels and Agen-big mistake-firstly the whole of Vichy appeared to be dead on a Sunday night, and when quizzed the patron of our hotel simply shrugged his shoulders and recommended not one, not two but a total of three restaurants that he not only refused to book on our behalf, but that...

Dear Sir, I wrote the review that you posted lately on Tripadvisor about our hotel. You did not appreciate your stay in Vichy either at the Arverna Hotel and I ‘m sorry for that. I agree with you that Vichy is not a very lively city in the evening specially on a Sunday of November. It was a pity that... More

Something tells me there are other mom-and-pop hotels in Vichy that are just as good as this one -- a likely candidate is just across the street, in fact -- but this property has achieved that coveted critical mass of positive tripadvisor reviews so that people come because, well, people come. It's a good choice, especially from the standpoint of... More

Amazing location, lovely staff and the attention to detail was remarkable. I let my son crawl on the hotel floor it was so clean!!! The rooms were charming and recently updated. Would stay here again if in Vichy no question about it. My husband chose it because of the trip advisor reviews and they were right....
