The staff here are so, so friendly - especially Loick! He not only tolerated my mediocre French, he encouraged me to speak more, and I really appreciated the opportunity to practice! Rooms are a little impersonal (given their wonderful personalities, this would be so easy to remedy!!), but comfortable and spotless. I was grateful to be on the 5th floor,... More

Here's the thing: this is a good hotel as long as you're looking for a two star hotel. It was my own fault that I had not checked the rating before making reservations. Having said that, the hotel is very clean, the front desk people are very helpful and pleasant, and the location couldn't be better. All the things you... More

Thanks for this review. Well, you dont read the emails we sent you but you write. Lol We mentioned in one the FAQ we sent you : "Are the showers small ? Yes and no. The smallest are 70cmx70cm, most are 80cmX80cm, others 70cm X90cm and some 80cmX110cm. We advise guests in need of the larger showers to inform us... More

We've been coming to Saint Malo for 20 years and tried many hotels but for the past 4 visits we've stayed at Hotel Le Nautilus. There is a good reason for this. This hotel is great value for money. Its spotlessly clean and the owners are so welcoming. We couldn't ask for more.

My partner and I have visited St Malo several times and stayed in different two or three star hotel inside the walls, but this is the first time we have stayed at the Hotel Nautilus, it having been full on previous occasions in the summer months. The best way to book is to contact the hotel direct, either by email... More

This lovely, reasonably priced hotel is made even better by the absolutely delightful owners and staff. The room was really nice for my boyfriend and I; it had a good bed and was nicely decorated. Highly recommended.

We stayed at Le Nautilus in April 2013 and had a fantastic experience. We got engaged on the walk around the walls of the old city late one evening after a romantic and amazing dinner at Le Bistro de Jean, right down the block. The next day in the late afternoon the owners and family and friends in for a... More

We recently spent a few days in St Malo, crossing as foot passengers and were very pleased to have found Le Nautilus with its pleasant and helpful staff. Our twin-bedded room was extremely comfortable (good beds, which is very important) and spotlessly clean. The shower cubicle was tiny but we managed perfectly well, and although it wasn’t mentioned on their... More

The rooms and bathroom are small: not enough room to swing a cat, but when was the last time you needed to swing a cat in Saint Malo? It is very quiet, the beds are small but comfortable, and we slept very well (we had a two-room bedroom). Breakfast is good: be sure to order it the night before! The... More

This was our 9th visit to St Malo and our 4th staying at Le Nautilus. Well, having stayed there once why would we want to go anywhere else? Yet again, it was spotlessly clean, offered a varied breakfast (the home made bread is delicious) with plentiful good coffee. As usual we received faultless and friendly hospitality from Loick and Jean-Michel.... More
