My family visited Nantes and we found Hotel Voltaire Opera to be the perfect place to stay. It has an ideal location close to city center, yet it is on a quiet street so that it is possible to get a good nights sleep! All of the staff members were very friendly, helpful and went above and beyond meeting our... More

We had a wonderful stay at this very clean and friendly hotel. The staff was extremely accommodating and did everything possible to ensure we enjoyed our visit to Nantes. They constantly replenished the nice breakfast buffet, and provided excellent concierge in cheerful English.

This hotel is rated among the top 10 in Nantes and has had a lot of positive reviews. I don't really agree, but yes, the breakfast is top quality and the receptionist was very, very helpful, but the rooms were not very nice. My daughter and I each had a room and we both found our rooms a bit substandard... More

Dear Mr Olle A, Thank you for your feedback regarding your stay. We were most concerned to hear that the room did not meet your expectations and we would like to apologise for this disappointment..

We spent one night in this hotel while we were in Nantes for a family visit. We arrived well before check-in, but as our rooms were ready the helpful lady at the reception desk allowed us to move into the room earlier. The room was located on the first floor at the end of the hallway. It was very spacious... More

We were a large party of 5 children and 2 adults needing 2 rooms. The rooms were just lovely. The receptionist was friendly and helpful and not at all put out by the kids'many questions. We didn't stay for breakfast but it looked good. Nantes is wonderful and this hotel a superb location. So pleased. Will return.

This hotel is excellently located. The staff were very efficient and friendly. The parking is around the block, but once there (and it was easy) the car felt very safe to me. Room small, but correct and very quiet. Bathrooms clean and well set up. It was very good quality for a cheap price.

We stayed one night on our way home from Hellfest Open Air festival in nearby Clisson. Arrived around 1pm, lugging heavy gear and looking like the great unwashed - 5 days camping in blistering heat on dusty ground will do that do you! Muddy boots and knotty hair the pair of us!

I didn't expect much from this hotel because of the price which is very low, but it occurred to be a wonderful place and I feel sorry there are no such hotels in Paris or Lyon. It's located close to the city centre (and Cigale restaraunt and to the island of machines, you may also easily walk to the ferry... More
