As soon as you walk through the door you feel welcome. The staff were all very friendly, suggesting where to park, where to have a meal and which way to go on the next stage of our trip. The room was quiet, clean, comfortable - what more do you need? Within minutes you are on the main shopping street of... More

We had a comfortable stay here, and would recommend it to anyone wanting to stay in the heart of the city. The staff are friendly and very helpful, and recommended several restaurants, the closest of which turned out to be outstanding (the Alambic) - the best meal we had in two weeks' travelling in France. Our room was a very... More

We stayed in a pristine newly renovated room under the roof. Bed was very good. Amenities were more than what would be expected from a 2 star hotel. Very nice and helpful staff. An overall outsanding value.

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
