The second oldest house in town, warm and generous owners, very well located and the charm of a historical house! Besides the rooms there is a very nice common area with a living room and terrace. The market is 5 min by walk and it's the region's second biggest...

We stayed in this glorious hotel in the heart of Rennes's old medieval quarter surrounded by a plethora of great restaurants for two nights. Our hosts René & Françoise could not have done more to make us more welcome or our stay more memorable. Our room was charming overlooking a lovely seated sun terrace where we enjoyed our breakfast on... More

My husband and I stayed at this property for two nights, both in June 2015 and June 2014. When we return to Rennes next year as we probably will due to work committments, we will again revisit this charming property. Fabrice is a wonderful host who provides an intimate, cosy and elegant environment right in the centre of the historic... More

What a find. This incredible building is located in the perfect area of old town Rennes. Walking distance to all sites and restaurants. Our host, Fabrice, was a perfect gentleman and very accommodating. Rooms were very spacious and beautiful. Breakfast was private and delicious. Thank you, Fabrice, for your kind hospitality!

Reside in a building going back to 1480, with ancient stairs and well-furnished rooms, a cozy lounge (wines and spirits available on a honor basis!) and a terrace that will definitely be wonderful if the weather cooperates. The continental breakfast for a reasonable amount of Eu9.50 includes juice, coffee or tea, bread, croissant, pastry, yoghurt, butter and jam and a... More

What a charming and we'll run B&B. We drove here and circled the area and parked some distance away before returning on foot. We were met by the charming Favrice who seemed to run the Hotel single handed. The building is 600 years old and very well adapted for a comfy stay. The bed was comfy and we slept well.... More

Rennes historic area where this B&B is located is a bit scary to drive in...but that makes the walking so wonderful through this very old district. A wonderful city. This B&B is wonderful. Very old world and beautifully restored. The room was comfortable and the breakfast was delicious - I highly recommend this B&B

Our sat/nav had great difficulty and we ended up parking and walking in. A VERY old building which was fascinating in itself. Host was charming, very helpful. Huge room, comfortable bed and peaceful. Great location for walking. Highly recommended.

Doubtless we have all seen the advertisement for the hotel, where every role is performed by the same person wearing a different uniform: the receptionist, the commissionaire even room service, well this was the proprietor of Symphonie DES Sens, known to all as Fabrice. He operates an amazing establishment 'Kind Hearts and Coronets' fashion. Being the custodian of such an... More

Part of the charm of Brittany is walking down the quiet streets of villages among the traditional homes with their colorful chevron and striped woodenbeam facades, leering over the streets as they slump in their antique foundations. Now imagine living in the oldest one in Renne! In fact, this boutique establishment does a great job of preserving the history while... More
