When you can stay at a property that is 12 years older than the date of Columbus discovering the New World you do it. Fantastic hosts, centrally located in Rennes, and wonderful breakfasts. The building is an incredible piece of architecture that will leave you awe struck.

In a narrow cobbled street in the old town of Rennes you can stay in this historic property. The hosts will make you so welcome and give every assistance possible. The car access is difficult, but Rene immediately took over and we were allowed to unpack our luggage at the door, then he took us to the car parking area... More

It started a bit badly when our SatNav kept trying to take us up streets that were closed off. We eventually decamped in a nearby carpark and walked as there isn't car access to the street where this hotel is situated. On arrival we found a placard saying to call the host and he would come round, which he did... More

We have often walked by the half-timbered buildings in French Gothic towns and wondered what it would be like to live inside. At Symphonie des Sens, we enjoyed that experience in great comfort. Housed in the oldest building in Rennes (built 1481) in the historic district, this small hotel offers a selection of different rooms arranged around an extraordinary original... More

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
