Good location, but somewhat old-fashioned hotel - needs refurbishment. Comfort is good, but missing the smile from the reception and breakfast staff. Rooms are quiet and clean, bed OK, bathroom small (but not surprising for France). I expected that little bit extra from a 4 star hotel.

The hotel has an ideal location right across from the train station. The rooms are clean, but very tiny. Bathrooms do not offer much space, but still manageable in the shower/tub and sink area. The toilet is in a separate room and there is not much space between the toilet and the wall so it felt a little cramped. Hotel... More

I arrived at the Gare St laud which is just opposite this hotel only a few minutes to cross the road to the reception area. The hotel is so central ,an easy walk to the station, the town and the wonderful castle. I have read the many reviews relevant to this hotel and can agree with most. Having arrived here... More

I have arrived at the Gare St laud on around 50 occasions and then collected by my French friends. I had visited Angers on day trips but I thought it would be nice to spend some time there. The hotel is so central and opposite the railway station. The hotel was very comfortable and the staff very helpful. The rooms... More

Staff super helpful, rooms nice if a little small, but clean and nice, - larger executive room recommended. Great location for station and shops and general sights, - nothing fancy but very comfortable.

This hotel is located directly across from the train station making it very convenient to access from the Paris airports by high-speed train. We rented a car from the rental agency at the train station for the rest of our trip. This was much easier than renting a car at the Paris airport and having to navigate the traffic in... More

Stayed here many times. We love it's location and friendly staff. Rooms are clean and very comfortable. Great to sit outside for lunch or drinks. We always stand at the French windows in the evening with our nightcap drinking in the atmosphere. It is a lovely drive here from Paris and Angers itself is easy to walk around and soak... More

I stayed here as a member of a group of 50 for 7 nights. Lots of groups stay here. Access from the railway station is easy - just walk across the large square. Less good for car drivers as parking outside the entrance is very limited on a busy road. The main historical sites and shops are within walking distance... More

Very easy to access via the Angers train station as just across the road, no stairs required either in the train station or hotel. The staff were very helpful, there are maps of Angers at the desk also wifi as well as a laptop and printer in the reception area. A restaurant is attached to the hotel or if you... More

Sometimes I think I must have stayed in a different hotel from the one I think I'm reviewing, when I read some reviews. We just spent three wonderful days in charming Angers and if I ever return, as I would love to, I wouldn't stay anywhere else. By the way not everyone who comes to this district has a car.... More
