Arriving at midnight to find the hotel was kind of difficult, especially to find the main entrance to the hotel. Disappointed to see a small lobby, but at least checking-in was fast, and the front desk guy accompanied us to our room on the 4th floor. Helpful and accomodating at least. Large room with a marbled bathroom, and push-botton controlled... More

The lobby of the hotel is tiny, there was a group arrived when I checked in and it was packed. I got a room at 4/F, nice view at the balcony. The blinds of the balcony is able to control from the panel next to the bed. Comfy bed and pillow, very clean bathroom. The swimming pool and spa open... More

I'm definitely biased towards modern, stylish hotels over the more rustic ones and the Hotel Vatel didn't disappoint at all. Great lobby area and bar for hanging out. Nice, large room with a large bathroom, full shower and working climate control. My balcony overlooks downtown and is enclosed for privacy if I want. The wifi is very fast and strong... More

The exterior is like arriving in immediately post war East Germany. There is no ambience as you enter the hotel and it doesn't get better. There is a problem with everything ..accessing wifi which keeps quitting, television controls that don't work, phone system that is complex. The brasserie is so bright you need sunglasses, zero ambience. The decor is plastic... More

This hotel and restaurant are on a business school campus. Students serve you. If you have patience, you will eat an excellent meal. The rooms were clean, spacious, and comfortable. Staff was friendly and did their best to ensure you were satisfied.

After staying in a rather unpleasant hotel in Nice, my wife and I were looking for something a little more upscale. We were pleasantly surprised when we found this little gem. The room was very well appointed for the price. The bed was very comfortable, and the staff were very friendly.

The hotel itself is newly rennovated. The rooms are modern and clean. The top floor restaurant is excellent. The concept of this hotel being a school for students studying hotel management is pleasant. However, it is far away from the city center. Right next to the hotel are some welfare buildings and student homes. Take a quick guess...- Part, alcohol,... More

A great small hotel, just 44 rooms, and an "école hotelliére" at the same time. The rooms are big and in grat condition, ( a big overhaul 2 years ago, I was told), and the staff--students willing to work and satisfy the customers. It's a bit of the city centre, in front of the Hospital--Medicine School of Nimes, wich can... More

A little hard to find, but well worth it if you want a full size room and don't need to stay in the city. The lunch in the main floor restaurant was delicious and at an affordable price. The staff was extremely friendly and attentive. Yes, this is a "school", but the attitude of the employees was 5 star. Would... More
