We enjoyed our 4 nights stay at the hotel de france. The lady at the front desk was really nice and helpful. We had a nice bedroom with a great view on the Leman lake! Nice bathroom as well. 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

We stayed in October during the tattoo convention. This hotel was very nice and you can't beat the location. We were very pleased with the room itself. Modern and very clean. The gentlemen who was at the reception desk was very nice as well. I would definitely recommend this hotel and come back for sure.

I seldom write reviews, but this time I just feel I need to. We knew we would arrive late to Evian having travelled all day from Denmark, so I wrote the hotel warning of our late arrival, but got no answer. So I thought all was well. Turned out the next evening that we arrived at a locked door, that... More

Very nice stop on ourway to the mountains. Located in the very center of the town, it is within walking distance of cafés, restaurants en the lakeside boulevard. Rooms are small but clean and efficient and the modern bathroom is excellent. The (free) own parking lot at the back of the hotel is a great bonus Important: to reach it... More

We agree with other reviews, that Hotel de France is basic, functional, spotlessly clean, provides a good continental breakfast and is good value for money at a time of year when accommodation in France is generally very expensive. We slept very well on twin beds pushed together ( our choice ) into a wide double size. The bathroom was small... More

Two star French hotels can be a bit hit and miss. The Hotel de France in Evian was on the hit rather than the miss side. The staff were very helpful and friendly, the rooms functional but spotless and nice and bright. Bathroom was of a high standard, only let down by the shower over the bath that had to... More

Spent one night there on my way from Zurich to Geneva. I choose that place because it was way cheaper then in Geneva and it is located only 30km from the Swiss border. Hotel is quite nice. Clean and staff was polite. Free underground parking. Great location. Breakfast included in the price. Free Wi-Fi but I got a problem with... More
