This is a decent Hotel in the city walls. The rooms and bathrooms are nicely appointed if a little small. Breakfast was a nice buffet with decent choice. The bar was very busy with 20-30 year olds shooting the breeze. A decent budget hotel.

Stayed here again in December, staff very helpful and friendly, rooms small but adequate only 50 euro per night. Great bar and good atmosphere, lots of character, can't fault! Everything on the doorstep , lots of very good restaurants everywhere must mention the Alchemiste Bar just around the corner also highly recommended.

Stayed one night when doing a Brittany Ferries short trip last month. While our room was very quiet and not a bad size, it overlooked an internal courtyard, so no view although the position of the hotel is good for visiting St Malo, very central. However the welcome we received was less than warm, the breakfast was very poor and... More

Our room was on the third floor, directly above the bar area. The shower door fell off in my husband's hands as he opened it to take a shower before dinner. In addition, our "non-smoking" room was filled with cigarette smoke all night from the bar area, which was directly beneath us, though three floors down. Apparently the stairway which... More

Nice hotel, nice spacious double room! Great location, lots of little restaurants and bars close by. Stayed on the 4th floor so very quiet for sleeping. Spacious room and bathroom. No restaurant but a really nice old pub and drinks terrace. Don't be put off by the pictures or web site, it is a great place to stay!

We have stayed in this hotel many times purely because of its location. The rooms are large and spacious with walk in wet room showers. The beds are large and comfortable and the staff accommodating. Parking is easy enough and you are adjacent to the port for the trip back to Pompey. There is no restaurant but you are surrounded... More

Great location, nice or neutral receptionists, bedroom exactly like the photos BUT very NOISY. Inside and outside the hotel.Inside, the bedroom doors are slammed because that's the only way to close them. (Big old-fashioned knobs.) Outside, despite the double-glazing, noise from the street.(Double comfort room 115)

This hotel is located in the Intra Muros (within the walls) and is very well placed in the main square. We have stayed many times over the years at this traditional French hotel with our last overnight being last weekend. We always find the hotel staff to be charming, polite and accommodating, the rooms are clean and comfortable and if... More

Close to Porte St Vincent, to the north eastern side of the walled city, you should trip over this hotel, and bar. The outside sitting area was covered and heated when we visited (October), and was always busy. The inside bar area is very traditional, full of sailing memorabilia, and better for non-smokers. The beers (Belgian, French and Irish -... More
