Hotel France is in the middle of Evian les Bains at with wonderful view to the Lehman lake. It was very clean and comfortable. Very rare in France but members of the staff speak English and Italian and are very helpful. There is a ferry to Lausanne in about every 90 minutes so Hotel France is a perfect place to... More

Arrived mid-morning after long international flight only to find that check-in was normally a bit later. The reception told us to wait just a bit on the lovely terrasse - that also is part of the breakfast area - and they would get the room finished shortly. The room had very nice linens and the bed was very comfortable. Great... More

thierry M, Directeur général at Hotel de France, responded to this review

old and not comfortable! this is wrong, we renovated all our rooms in 2013 and 2014. The wireless terminals that covers the hotel are brand new, coverage is very good. We remind you that you have booked in a 2 star hotel with a 2 star price on Evian. You wanted more comfort and service, you should book a 4... More

Arrived after 9pm at the hotel (email to advise them of late arrival) and our room keys were left out for us. The twin room we had was small but clean and cool, it had a lovely view of the square too. Breakfast was continental and the owners were very happy to help out. A nice touch was being able... More

Just what you need. Clean and comfortable in an ideal location. The staff were friendly and helpful, and checking in out of hours was no trouble at all! Also features a garden for relaxing and breakfast on a good day. Recommended.

Possibly the friendliest receptionist I've ever encountered in France, and I've lived here for 6 years! The Hotel de France is a very large building smack in the middle of Evian at the top of a pedestrian street sweeping down towards the lake front promenades. Many rooms offer delightful views towards the church and lake, and I made a point... More

If you are supposed to be checked-in later than 9:00pm then please contact with front desk and then they will supply instructions for letting you in. Do not forget to take your credit cards... More

Very convenient because located right downtown, close to many restaurants; and yet pretty quiet at night. We won't hesitate to come... More

We accidentally booked the room for the previous night, but the director graciously honored our reservation at no additional charge. The breakfast was an additional cost, but it was very good. The hotel is a central location to all the shops and restaurants. We had a wonderful view of the clock tower and piazza below. The hotel is a bit... More
