Steeped in history, this hotel is very nice and conveniently located place in town. The staff is warm and welcoming. The restaurant is a very good address. Rooms, concise and simple, remain comfortable for a short stay. Some of the reviews say the hotel is dirty and dilapidated. I dont agree, I'd consise. This's not the kind of hotel where... More

Stayed here on a school trip visiting from the United States. As an aficionado of colonial architecture and history, this hotel does not disappoint! It helps to have a working knowledge of the French language to smooth your visit to Hotel La Residence. The rooms were clean, and the staff pleasant. The restaurant is very pleasant, and an excellent way... More

We did not stay at the hotel la residence but simply ate at the restaurant. It was disappointing to say the least. 1. The service: maybe one of the worse ever seen. We had to wait over 30 min to get drinks. We asked if the air conditioning device that was right above our table could be switched off and... More

The hotel is in the middle of the St. Louis Island, so location is central and great. The old-style colonial decoration, with pictures of the times gone-by and posters and news from those times, makes an inviting atmosphere. The restaurant serves fantastic food and internet was ok. However, there was a black-out in a series of rooms in the only... More

I loved the stay. Its a very charming atmosphere, colonial style, staff very friendly and right in the city centre. We had to cancel one night at short notice (one day before) and they were very understanding and didnt charge us. The upstairs terrace has really good views.l and the downstairs terraces hosts some good concerts if you are lucky.... More

This hotel is not as old as some, dating only from the 1950's. It's Aeropostale themed decor help give it a pleasant ambiance. Clean rooms, decent breakfast, generally good restaurant, plus live music, often jazz, once or twice a week. WiFi works but is spotty in places.

I recently stayed at Hotel La Residence for 6 days during New Year's and found it to be a wonderful base from which to explore Saint-Louis. As other reviewers have mentioned, the building itself is an old French administrative building. However, it is kept in an austere, but tip-top condition. My room was simple but very clean and well-maintained. I... More

We only used the restaurant and did not stay at this hotel over night, but we were very happy with the friendly and professional service and the quality if our food. The design of the restaurant is very colonial and you feel transported back in time in a very nice way. There is a court yard setting with nice art... More

My husband and I had 2 nights here and thoroughly enjoyed it. The rooms are quite basic but we had a room off the roof terrace and it was lovely. There was a bit of noise from the neighbouring water pipe but the room was otherwise quiet and private as no-one used the terrace during our stay The highlight of... More

Although lodged in a old french administrative building this hotel has a great personality. The rooms are basic, without frills, but the bar and restaurant are a must. The expresso coffee was great and the restaurant has very nice quality
