In my view, the big plus of this hotel is the location: in the city center, central pedestrian area in a two-minute walk, Talensac market around the corner, public rent-a-bike station just in front of the hotel. The room was nice, clean and fairly big. I pretty much appreciated the quality of the bed. The Wifi was free and working... More

We absolutely fell in love with Nantes. Its historic buildings and quarters merge beautifully with modern infrastructure and traffic-free centre with highly impressive public transport provision. A real jewel. The Duquesne is a charming two-star hotel which is well located for the city centre, the sites and restaurants of all qualities. The welcome is very warm and attentive; the breakfast...

We used this as a halfway staging point to our destination further south in France. Excellent welcome with friendly staff. Very central. Very good continental breakfast. As it's a city centre location, in the middle of a pedestrianised and tram area, accessing the hotel is not so easy, but the staff direct you to a nearby car park where the... More

OK, the room was tiny, but quiet and clean. The staff was helpful and friendly and that was all I needed for a short stay. If you are looking for a good 2 star hotel, you are making a good choice. I'd definitely would return.

Bit disappointed in this hotel after seeing thd reviews. The staff were brilliant, so friendly and helpful, but the hotel smelt strongly of lavender air freshner, our room was painted a sickly lilac colour, and you could hear every toilet flush and footstep from nearby rooms.

Duquesne is a good 2 star provincial hotel. Our room was spotless but tiny. Typical bathroom arrangements meaning no shower curtain. The sloping floor was pretty disconcerting until we found out that the hotel, like many old buildings in Nantes is built on a filled in canal. Many are not very level. Breakfast was good. The location is very good... More

We booked this hotel online for 4 nights. On arrival we were given the keys to a very small room on the first floor, at the back. The window looked out unto a wall and a small courtyard. The smell of cooking (sprouts or cauliflower) in the room itself was appalling. Upon requesting at the reception desk if we could... More

The best thing about this hotel is undoubtedly the fantastic staff. They were so helpful and really went out of their way to assist us. The hotel is probably what you would expect for a 2*; basic but clean and perfectly adequate. Our room was small and the bathroom was actually a wet room which I'm guessing is because they... More

For a short stay in Nantes, the Duquesne Hotel is well located for sight-seeing and dining. It is in the old quarter and is esy walking distance from everything you are likely to want to visit - the chateau, the cathedral, the elephant (?), the shops and restaurants. The rooms are well-decorated, clean and are a good size. Reception staff... More
