I was in transit seeking a good central hotel with a quiet room for a reasonable price. The room was spacious, clean and comfortable. The hosts were friendly and very helpful with my arrangements and my limited French. I would stay again.

Spent a night at the Brel with a family group on our way to a barging holiday. I caught a taxi from the station which was a quick and easy trip. The people that drove said they battled to find the hotel. There was great secure parking as we didn't feel like unpacking everything from the car. I has a... More

Large room with separate toilet and separate bath - lots of space and that quite nice in order to relax and almost feel a bit like home. The decor and the funiture was far from the standard hotels so that's a huge plus in my point of view.

This was a flying visit and we needed a comfortable place to rest our weary heads after a long day, and the Hotel du Palais did well. It is in the heart of the old city and a bit difficult to find with road works and one way system. Paring in the square and secure hotel spaces. Very friendlt family... More

A very unusual hotel, very individual , where "shabby chic" is the order of the day. A bit basic but if you want an antidote to the big international chain type hotels this could be a good choice. I go to Angouleme quite a lot on business so had no difficulty finding the hotel. You can park in the street... More

This hotel is located in the center of the walled city of Angouleme. Our Garmin GPS lead us directly to the hotel. Great location for exploring the city. This older hotel has been renovated with features that include a lift, WiFi, new bathrooms and WCs. The color scheme is very different and whimsical. Beds are comfortable and rooms are clean....

We stayed here for one night en route to the SW coast. It's right in the centre of town, a great location and has its own garage facilities (although you do need to book this to ensure you get a place). We loved the decor - really quirky - lots of pink and purple, and the reception area was full... More

An excellent find. We needed a base that would combine character town, ample choice of dining within walking distance, high standard of cleansiness and a peaceful nights sleep. Top that off with very hospitable staff, good breakfast available and a parking space! Parking in the old town is difficult so pre-book at the hotel advised (this too is quite tight!).... More

Thank god for hotels like these !! Bang smack in the middle of the old town, walking distance to plenty of restaurants, shops, market etc - parking available and extremely pleasant staff. At first we toyed with the idea of booking this hotel or the Mercure in Angouleme and I am so pleased we chose this hotel. We booked a... More
