This quiet old style French hotel is situated in a quiet side street near to the town hall. The owner was most welcoming and gave useful advice. However, two failings. Firstly, my room was on the third floor and the single means of access or escape was up / down a narrow wooden (?) staircase. There are notices prohibiting smoking... More

First I must to say that I spend around 120-140 nights a year i hotels around world and this is the most appalling and nasty hole I've ever seen!!! Stayed here for a week as I moved to Poitier for work and thought about the location. On arrival I was given uncleaned room (brown human produced snake in toilet), room... More

This hotel is in the heart of the old city of Poitiers. In order to reach it you need a code to get through the security into the square. The instructions we received from the hotel were in french and though I translated the basics it was not clear that we had to type in the code to make the... More

We stayed in the family room of this hotel for two nights in July. It has a fantastic location in the heart of the city and we got a rate of 75 euros per night for a 4 person room. The hotel is a basic old fashioned french hotel, but it'svery clean and the proprieters and staff were very helpful... More

This hotel is located in the very centre of Poitiers. The rooms are big but not cosy at all. The beds were not very comfortable. Breakfast was not rememberable. There is parking in the garden but doors close at 10 so if you visit futuroscope for the fireworks you have to park on the street. (No big deal....) GPS is... More

We stayed one night and wanted a central hotel in Poitiers. The location is good if a little hard to find but it is right next to an Irish pub at the back of a theatre and this created noise at night. We were able to park the car at the back of the hotel for 5 euros and this... More

If you've read the other 2 reviews you may wonder how the same place could be viewed so differently, so let's get this clear - it is a two star hotel for which you will not pay a lot of money. It badly needs to renew facilities in the rooms, simple things like light bulbs, shower holdings, etc. For me... More

How on earth this 'hotel' has been awarded two stars is totally beyond me. All it has going for it is that, at the moment, it is quite clean, and the breakfast is acceptable. It has no facilities whatsoever. No lounge, no bar, nowhere to sit except on the hard chair or even harder bed in your room. No complementaries... More

Great location, friendly staff (very helpful with bus routes, train schedules, restaurants, etc.). Room was fine. I would definitely stay here again. The location is perfect, just off the main town square. Great value at 46 e/night.
