What a fantastic find! A delightful hotel built in the 15th century and located right in the heart of Rennes. We were visiting our son who is studying at the University. This five-night short break was ideal. We spent our time walking around the historic parts of Rennes, visiting the Museum at Champs Libres where we spent a whole afternoon... More

Other hotels may have bigger bathrooms and bedroom floors that don't squeak, but how many of those were built in the fifteenth century in the historic heart of Rennes and have the incomparable Fabrice as host!

This is a charming little inn, perfectly located in the center of historic Rennes, run by a very sweet and helpful family. The building, itself, is one of the oldest houses in the town. The rooms, while small, are charming and full of character. There is a lovely sitting area for guests where breakfast is served or, alternatively, they will... More

Absolutely the perfect place to stay in Rennes for our trip to visit our daughter, who is studying here. Beautiful accommodations and hospitality could not be warmer or more welcoming. Highly recommended!

We visited France in Aug 2013 and stayed at Hotel Symphonie des Sens (bed and breakfast) in Rennes for two nights. We had been provided the wonderful rooftop apartment which had 3 rooms. As we understood, the owner Fabrice was away and his parents were filling in for him, handling all the operations. The hotel is around 15 minutes walking... More

The facility is located in the old town in Rennes: be adviced it's a pedestrian zone but parking lots are available few minutes walking distances (Lices or La Vilaine). The building is a fascinating historical typical Bretagne house named to be the oldest house in Rennes. Friendly welcome by the father of the owner (Fabrice was on vacation that days...)... More

I cannot recommend this B&B highly enough. Definitely worth the price. The building was built in 1435 and is located in the old part of town. It has all the old-world charm you could want with all the modern comforts (save an elevator). Run by the amazing Fabrice, this place is immaculate, elegant, charming, quiet and comfortable. The breakfast was... More

The first problem was how to find Symphonie des Sens - access in the heart of the historic centre of Rennes is not easy, but Fabrice's instructions were clear and it was certainly worth the effort. What an amazing building - my engineer husband couldn't take his eyes off the 1470s staircase construction and we lay in bed admiring the... More

We stayed only 2 nights in Fabrice's beautiful home in the heart of Rennes but wish we had stayed much longer! The rooms of this historic building are beautifully furnished and cosy with private bathrooms and are made up each day with fresh towels etc. The rooms have tea & coffee making facilities and there is wine, cider and other...
