A fine building in a quiet area of the town while at the same time very central, with secure parking behind electronic gates. It contains a lot of antique furniture and pictures, but the public areas are decorated in dubious taste. The owner/manager is rather in your face - literally, as he gave my wife a quite unsolicited kiss on... More

If you are looking for modern and fresh, this is not the place for you. However, if you want to have a comfortable vintage time in an French Inn, this is a wonderful stop over with an attentive staff and wonderful breakfast. The rooms are small, but have quaint views of the city.

It was rather like staying in a National Trust property, with many personal items around. The patron was very (almost too) friendly. Our room was on the ground floor opening into the garden but didn't feel secure enough to leave doors open at night. A bit noisy in the night with party and home goers.. The breakfast was modest ,...

Lovely, older building, well located in the centre of Agen, within very easy walking distance of all you would want to see and do in the town. The rooms are large, very high ceilings with furniture to match! It is a fascinating house to look round and the patron, Stephane, speaks good English and will recommend restaurants to try that...

A beautiful old Chateau right in the centre of the old city, running as a hotel / guest house. The room sizes vary (therefore the prices - suggest you check) but you can still feel the grandeur of the building and its furnishings. It could double as a museum. Quirky.

The main attraction of Jacobins is that it is an attractive old house centrally located in Agen and with secure parking (see photo). The house is decorated in a very imaginative style and contains many antiques and good quality furniture. Our room, on the ground floor, was very well appointed and with, what appeared to be, a newly renovated bathroom... More

Despite its name, this is not a hotel and does not offer the services or facilities of a hotel; however it is a pleasant bed and breakfast establishment with traditional decor and furniture, very well located in the centre of Agen.

This hotel is in a great location in the middle of old town in Agen. There is free secure parking in the hotels courtyard. The owner is very friendly and speaks very good English. The hotel and our room were filled with antiques and period furniture. All very nice. Breakfast is served in the lovely courtyard. It's about a 5... More

This is a find. Perfect location right in the old section, quiet, with parking in the courtyard. 4 star, Nice sized, air conditioned, Room 16, ( a two floor walkup), twin beds, table chairs, free wifi throughout the hotel, CNN, minibar, Kleenex but no washcloths. Perfect.

To start, I am a fairly high maintenance traveler and I was a lot worried to stay here based on the reviews, but as it was recommended I went for it. It was GREAT! The owner, a quite elderly woman is a bit eccentric and her grandson runs the place and his English is not the best which, but the... More
