I think we must have had one of the rooms waiting to be re-furbished, it was very outdated but it was clean and the bed was very comfortable. Once we figured out how to get in the room (the door was tricky) we managed a hot shower and a good nights rest before heading up the mountain. we didn't even... More

We paid for a superior room in order to get one of the recently refurbished rooms. The room was attractive and the bed comfortable but because there were so many hard surfaces it was very noisy. The metal bedside tables were particularly irritating. The biggest and deepest bath I have ever found in a hotel - bliss!

Short summary: First room (204) : shabby, in need of paint (blackened walls in corner), lots of scuff marks on wall by suitcase stand, broken light bulb; stained lightshade, leaky toilet, not very clean bathroom, derailed closet door; lack of soundproofing – noise of scooters and trucks despite window being closed. We asked for a room change after 1st night’s... More

We stayed at the Agora Hotel for five nights as my partner was attending a conference based in Aix-Les-Bains. Aix-Les-Bains is a very pretty small Spa town to the west of which lies Lac du Bourget. The hotel is situated on Ave de Marlioz which is in a very pretty and central position. It's a 10 minute walk to the... More

First impression: a bit outdated but nothing special. Then I noticed that the bathroom was not very clean, except for the sink and the bathtub itself. Looking closely, cleaning seems to be very superficial since several weeks at least. Then I noticed filth in the side of the bed that looked like someone ejaculated on the bed. At this point...

The Agora Hotel on impression looks fairly average - the room was - it desperately needs a refurb but it would appear that this is happening as the bedrooms on lower floors looked great. So request first floor! The food served in a smart dining room is superb - really knowledgeable and friendly staff. If the rooms get overhauled in... More

We recently stayed at the Agora for five nights. There were about 15 in our party, we were in Aix Les Bains for our son's wedding. The hotel was a perfect location for everything we needed. The staff spoke English, could not have been more helpful. The rooms were certainly adequate with some being upgraded. Breakfast was great and the... More

I was surprised when I opened the door to the room. Not the smallest but it has been a long time since that room at least had seen investment. It was very 20th century French style. On a better note the food and breakfast were nice and the lobby and restaurant areas are clean and stylish. Despite being on a... More

Good central location, pleasant helpful reception staff. Bathroom ok shower over bath usual athletics required to get in.Good heating, pointless balcony too small to be of any use except for advertising that you have one. Excellent free wifi if you're near the routers (turn left from the elevator) can be poor elsewhere. Breakfast very average as are the breakfast staff.

We stayed here for one night on a trip further south. Aix-les-bains is a lovely place and this hotel is ideally located, being just a few minutes' walk from the centre. There is parking (which you pay for, but it is convenient) and there is a nice bar, restaurant and (on the lower ground floor) a pool and sauna. The... More
