Great location, quiet yet so close to where it's all going on. This old fashioned hotel offers a quiet place to lay your head. The facilities are basic and there are no frills. That said, if you are like me and you only use a hotel to sleep in, then it's just fine. Good breakfast, pleasant courtyard garden. Private parking... More

At first time you see the hotel, garden, room, you are just amazed, after one night, especially in the morning, everything beaufiful comes away...very uncomfortable beds! Nice, old, but not good to sleep there. Average breakfast. And it is not true that madame Rousseau is running whole hotel by herself. She has at least two more helpers.

From reading other reviews we knew this could go either way, but we loved the idea of a dated, quaint hotel, and were rewarded with a delightful night's at the Hotel Rousseau. It was a rare and precious experience. All criticisms are probably factually correct - bed was uncomfortable etc etc - and if we'd had a room without a... More

If you are looking for a fresh, modernized room -- keep looking. However, if you would like to stay in the house where owner Madame Rousseau was born -- and little has changed in 40-50 years -- book early. This places fills, often with pilgrims and trekkers. I booked two days in May 2013 and stayed for four, mostly because... More

This is an inexpensive (approx. 60 Euros) hotel that includes breakfast at no additional charge. It is located within a 5 minute walk from the Hotel Dieu and tourist office. It is furnished today as it probably was in 1932. Almost nothing appears to have been renewed or refurbished with the important exception of the bathrooms, which include a good... More

We booked this hotel during our honeymoon because it was reccommended by Lonely Planet. My husband and I really enjoy old charming hotels and we were very pleased when we first arrived at the hotel. It is an old house, with antique decor, the room was very spacious. However, it lacks in basic structure. The bed was absolutely horrible, impossible... More

The main floor rooms were a gift since dragging our luggage to a higher floor might have really ruined my day, having just disembarked from the second floor of a train on the 'opposite' track. I liked the 'frumpiness' of this hotel and found it to be clean and 'old French' just to my liking. Compared to most other hotels... More

We chose this hotel and knew from the trip advisor reviews that it could go either way...love it or hate it! I loved it, my parter hated it. The hotel itself is in need of a total makeover. It, I assume, is a typical old style French hotel, but by today's standard is more like a flop house/hostel. Our room... More

Although, the room seemed fairly clean, it was very crowded and frumpy. The bed was very uncomfortable and the towels were unusable---scratchy, old, and dingy. I could not bear to use them and used my camping towel instead. The breakfast was minimal: 1 croissant, bread, and a hot drink. For 48 Euros, this seemed overpriced. I would not recommend this...
