This is generally a very nice hotel in a good area, close to the station, the town and the seafront. However, visiting in August we found it to be just 'ticking over' and obviously waiting for more guests to arrive. The room was quite spacious but had no armchairs to sit in. There was no mini bar. The shaver socket... More

The hotel was clean and tidy enough and the staff polite and helpful.... There is no restaurant available (although they do breakfast) and... More

A pleasant enough hotel with a distinct art deco theme. Beds comfortable enough (pillows less so) and room airy (if you ignore the views of the back of other buildings)..... but a few things really let it down. We were here for work, left at 9 am and returned at 3pm to find the room hadn't been serviced - not... More

The location is good. The room good, the A/C perfect, the tv perfect, but a bit more of ammenities (for the toilet) could be nice. The staff were very pleasant and disposed to help you. The breakfast????I went to a near bar, it´s toooooo much expensive and I think that mny clients think like me.

The hotel is in the centre of Brest, very convenient for the station and the main shopping centre. The room was fine, everything did what is was supposed to do. We had a great nights sleep, the breakfast was better than we had hoped for, scrambled eggs, sausage and bacon as well as the usual continental offering, all included in... More

Every thing was OK: The Hotel location, very close the rue of Siam (the Commercial street of Brest), the Room, Installations, staff. Only one objection to do, the breakfast was quite good, but it is very expensive.

Entering this impressive art deco lobby and walking up and down the staircase with its stained glass windows is definitely part of the legend. I would be happy arranging informal meetings there and will be happy to return to stay overnight again.
