We have stayed here twice now. Its a pleasnt family run hotel, they are very friendly and helpful, the rooms are all clean and nicely appointed and incredible value for money. I would say that you should try and get a room in the new extension if you can, there is nothing wrong with the older rooms as such, it... More

Briancon is worth a visit. The old town has a nice athmosphere ,but somewhat touristy( of course) . We stayed in this hotel, in the new part of the town , some hundred meters away . It was nice and clean , good breakfast, a little balcony in many of the rooms. Parking outside .

Family-owned hotel, just outside the city walls. Rooms fine, a little spartan but did the job. Wifi and breakfast good and service friendly. Not the Ritz, but does the job. Great views across the valley towards the mountains.

Internal free parking in a central position between the old town and the modern central street, 200mt from the supermarket. Modern rooms, good bath tube and wonderful balcony, Free good wifi. Nice concierge that booked for us the refuge for dinner and allowed to keep the car parked after checkout for the entire day

Our group of six cyclists choose the Edelweiss as a base to explore some of the famous climbs of the French Alpes. The Edelweiss was a great choice with very friendly and helpful staff (a family run hotel), very good bike storage/maintenance area and full free laundry service. Rooms were spacious and comfortable in a homely style (ones that face... More

Location and cleanliness is always first on our list. This property would score well on both counts. One can walk downhill (uphill return) 10 minutes to the center of town with a decent variety of dining opportunities. There is car parking on site, no charge if you have a vehicle. The hotel, while simply furnished was quite clean. We were... More

We have stayed in many of the hotels in Briancon so this was another to add to our list. The man on reception either could not speak English or chose not to do so, either way if was inconvenient trying to guess what he was telling us. Nice room, small, facing the road and bins on the side (not that... More

A good location, as it is only about 200 metres downhill from Briancon old town, which is well worth a visit. The rooms are basic, but clean. Good wifi access. Parking is limited and the spaces are small. The hotel is by a main road, so traffic can be noisy.

A group of 9 friends stayed at this hotel for 3 nights in June 2014. The hotel is just brilliant, and the staff are fantastic. The rooms are well sized and clean and comfortable. We had half board and the food was exceptional, (home made croissants). What made the hotel really special was Stephanie and Gregoire, who are great hosts... More

Easy parking at the door in a secure yard, great views over snow-capped peaks and friendly service all make the right recipe. Rooms are basic but warm and comfortable. Breakfast is basic, but typical. A slight negative is that you are neither in the old city or the new one. It is a do-able hike in either direction...maybe 10 minutes... More
