I have stood in this hotel twice just for one night. I have to admit it has a really good location for travelers that just transit Chambery and follow their road further to other destinations. Prices are reasonable for the offer and the train station is just 2 min away on the other side of the road. Rooms are decent... More

Stayed for one night on a quick sightseeing visit to Chambery. Literally across the road from the Gare, so perfect for the train. The hotel itself has a cafe/bar/restaurant and there are also several other cafés and restaurants on the same road. Room was budget standard but clean and comfortable so no real complaints. Free wifi worked in our room... More

The only good thing about this place is the price. My room reeked of tobacco smoke and there was even a dirty ashtray on the desk. In Nov. it was freezing. Neither the radiator nor the space heater could do much. As for the revamping referred to in another review, I didn't see a sign of it. I would say... More

The hotel has been rather lazily revamped and made into a 2 star ok priced hotel but the front bar downstairs is still the old scuzzy "Hotel de la Gare" ouvert-open quasi 24/24 thingo. Some dodgy clientele there, so go elsewhere if a few ruffians (harmless ones) put you off. Chambery old town is a 10 to 15 minute walk... More

This hotel is really conveniently located if you are relying on public transport. We chose it based on location to train (25meters!) Not sure what I was expecting after the negative reviews but we were pleasantly surprised. Room and bathroom always clean. Cupboards perfectly adequate for a few days. Beds comfy and crisp white sheets and towels. Lift helped with... More

The first impression was horrible. Everything was old. My room smelled of smoke. The moquette was worn out, the furniture very old, there was a tiny wardrobe and no enough space for my clothes , so that I was obliged to keep it inthe suit case for a week. But the position was very useful, near tothe centre and just... More
