We stay at this hotel several times each year, and it never fails to please! Several of the rooms have recently been upgraded and are absolutely lovely, the same staff always friendly, helpful and welcoming. Excellent location for that area of the city, and great value. Over the years we have checked out other hotels in the area, but for... More

This hotel is verging on grubby and it would be seriously improved by a deep clean or a total refresh. That said it is very central, located on the Piazza in the old town, very convenient and not too expensive. Tolerable for a single night but I suspect you can do better for the money in the vicinity. Breakfast was... More

We have stayed a few times in this hotel, I'm sorry to say that this year will probably be our last. The hotel is not clean and the breakfast has gone downhill in the last couple of years. On the plus side, the girl on reception was very friendly and it is in no central position with many places to... More

We chose the hotel because we wanted to be able to be within walking distance to the old part, cathedral, restaurants and shopping lanes. We were delighted. Not only the friendly reception, but also the clean rooms, made our stay in Rennes very pleasant!

Great central location , very helpful staff, good breakfast and very good value for money. No noise issues when the windows are closed . The Italian place next door is good . The Mexican down the street should be avoided at all costs .

Spent four days with a group of golfers and experienced the worst hotel room ever. It was really only a single box room with a Double bed. The layout and lack of natural light gave the feeling of being trapped in a cave. The bathroom was a disgrace..Poorly maintained , tatty ,foul smelling and dirty. The windows were something else..Grime,... More

We have stayed at this hotel numerous times over a period of several years but this is the first time I have got round to writing a review. If you want to be in the midst of absolutely everything but only a few minutes walk away from the the quieter historic squares that Rennes has to offer then this is... More

The Hotel Des Lices is well located in the city centre of Rennes, close to the market and at walking distance from Ille-Vilaine rivers, Sainte Anne Metro Station and main attractions. Though, since it is located in such a lively area, it can be very noisy, especially if your room overlooks Des Lices square. Furthermore, also other rooms are very... More

A great small and inexpensive hotel slap-bang in the centre of Rennes. But beware: pack your earplugs. Admittedly, we stayed on a Friday night but it seemed as if le tout Rennes wa partying five floors below us. But with that caveat in mind, recommended.

I stayed at this hotel in April of 2011 while visiting my boyfriend who lives in Rennes. I had stayed at a much more expensive hotel the month prior, which did not compare to this hotel. The rooms are of great size considering being in Europe, the rooms are very clean, everything in the hotel is environmentally friendly, and the... More
