This small hotel is clean, quiet and well located. We walked from the train station (north exit) with our luggage in less than 10 minutes. The staff were very helpful. The rooms were quite okay, if dated, but the shower worked better than at some other places we have been staying. The breakfast buffet for E 9 included coffee, some... More

Stayed for 1 might in this hotel last week. It was cheap enough and clean but only has the basics with no bar and only 2 car parking spaces available. It is in a great location for sight seeing around Nantes and Nantes itself is a fantastic city with lots to see and do.

I stayed in this hotel for 1 week on a business trip. The rooms are quite small but clean and cozy. The hotel is ideally located close the the historic center, the Erdre river (nice for running, kayak and other activities ...) and many good restaurants and fast food places. Despite it's location I had no problems with outside noise.... More

I booked hotel this as our base for Hellfest 2014. It's less than a ten minute walk from the central train station where you may well have been dropped off by the airport coach that runs from outside the terminal. It's absolutely fine for a few days stay - nice and central location, you'll be in the centre of Nantes... More

Despite the small rooms and a few outdated fixtures, this hotel is a wonderful place to stay when visiting Nantes. Right in front if one lovely church, it is only about an eight-minute walk to the cathedral and château. What's more, the street that takes you there is lined with restaurants, shops, a market, a laundromat, a pharmacy, etc. -... More

If you want a clean room with comfy bed and no other demands, then this hotel ticks the boxes as its location is ideal for a stroll into the heart of the city. Also handy for the rail station. The staff are courteous and will do their best to help. Some rooms are very small, but all very well looked... More

We stayed here for one night (a Thursday night) and we would not return. The hotel facade is dated and inside the hotel does fare a bit better but needs an overhaul. The rooms were clean. It was about a 5min walk to the old town. The biggest issue we had was the noise. The hotel is located beside a... More

After climbing winding stairs with luggage was surprised how spacious the room was, with direct view of cathedral opposite. Unfortunately there were roadworks/alterations taking place when we were there but would still recommend because of room quality and helpful staff, as well as reasonable price, main reservation being no lift.

I arrived in Nantes after cycling down the Brest/Nantes ship canal and this hotel was conveniently located close to the centre of the city, ideal for some sight seeing. My welcome was warm and I was able to store my cycle securely in a lock up garage to the rear of the hotel. Climbing the steep stairs was a struggle... More
