Clean comfortable hotel. Staff friendly and helpful. Room small and lift did not go to the 4th floor so had to cart suitcases up a flight of stairs. Good location close to town. Restaurant pricey and limited dining options in town. Walking tour of old town well worth doing and visit to Abbey a must.

A pleasant hotel in the town square. Staff were friendly and attentive and spoke good English (far better than our French!) Our room was large with a comfy bed and really good pillows - not so for some of the hotels we have stayed in. Bathroom was clean and well appointed and breakfast was plentiful, including scrambled eggs. Secure car... More

This hotel is in the centre of town at one side of a square. There is a very good restaurant incorporated into the building and a garage by the side. We were greeted by a friendly English speaking receptionist. Our room was not large but adequate for one night and had very efficient air-conditioning which was most welcomed. The lift... More

We stayed here for 3 nights on a road trip to Italy and found it very good. The room wasn't the biggest and had a strange "split" bathroom and toilet that could have been in one room, instead of having to go to one side for the loo and the other for the shower/bathroom!! Unfortunately our shower leaked all over... More

After 2 or 3 years we were once again travelling through France and decided to stay once again at Hotel de france, Bourg-en-Bresse. We were not disappointed as we found the welcome, the hospitality, the food, the facilities better than ever and will certainly return!

Located in the town centre on a square with a fountain, the Hotel de France couldn't have a better location. It is a traditional French hotel and has managed to retain it's character whilst offering very comfortable and a good standard of accommodation. We had a good sized room overlooking the square and was not particularly noisy, the spacious bathroom... More

Nice central but quiet location, lovely building. The room was quite small but the bathroom was huge, not recently modernised but all clean and fine. Nice big towels and plenty of them, but the shower gel is super hard to use, not good if you don't have a lot of strength in your hands. Friendly staff, all in all a... More

We travelled to Bourg-en-Bresse for a triathlon and just needed a hotel for 1 night stay. We don't know the area and found very few hotels in town that seemed ok. This hotel had good reviews so we chose it. It was a good location for us. Across from the cathedral and walking distance (5-10 minutes) from many restaurants. Area... More

This hotel reminds you of the good old times. You hear the whole house resonating...Rooms are large and so is the bathroom, both with a nice view to a little square. Both recently renovated. Service is very friendly and helpful. Breakfast buffet quite reasonable, you can order scrambled eggs included in the price. Hotel is just in the center of... More
