This was a marvellous base for visiting both Semur itself and many parts of Burgundy. The off-street parking was particularly welcome as I was driving a full car northwards; and the parking was secured at night. Access to the courtyard in a Stilo Estate was easy: any criticism about access being narrow is just unfair. The staff were friendly; the... More

Just steps away from the ancient town centre this hotel is somewhat tired and shabby - the very chilly grey rainy weather didn't help - the rooms were not heated despite the weather having been like this for several days. More positively, my room was clean and the bed comfortable, no frills at all. The breakfast very much portion controlled... More

An older style hotel a few steps away from central Semur, with a walled courtyards where one can park a car. Careful though, with tight turn we were glad we parked in parking lot 30 yards below. No elevators but a stairway up to "deuxieme etage"--third floor-- nice pictures on wall of stairwell, bedroom on top with large exposed beams... More

Well-located with convenient parking, but the hotel is shabby and worn, with a bad odor throughout. We were unable to find good restaurants, and the town was not very interesting. It's a convenient stop on the way from Burgundy to Paris. The hotel is probably OK for the cheap price, but don't expect anything charming or quant.

We stayed here after reading about it in a Rick Steves guidebook. The room was dark, dated, and quite tired. A bit on the small side, but this is not unexpected in Europe. Unfortunately, we were placed directly next to the stairwell, which was terribly noisy. We asked to move rooms, but they told us it was not possible. We... More

We stayed at HOTEL DES CYMAISES for 3 nights in early September. We enjoyed our stay and will not hesitate to stay here again – beautiful and convenient location, peaceful, free parking, great breakfast – a solid value for 68 Euros per couple. Location: In the heart of an amazingly beautiful medieval walled town. Parking: A very convenient free parking... More

Semur-en-Auxois is a charming village in a lovely region. We had a perfectly nice room up the stairs. This is not a luxury hotel, it is fairly basic, but clean, comfortable, and furnished with antiques. The price was fair, and it's very well located, if a bit hard to find in the car. The entrance is on a narrow street... More

We had a large room on the top floor with some views. Didn't eat the hotel as there are plenty of choices nearby in this quaint old village. Well worth a walk round. To use the car park at the hotel you must drive up a very narrow lane from a car park nearby, saves carrying your cases.

We stayed one night at the hotel on our way to Paris. Cosy room, good service and a traditional breakfast. For our family room, room no 14, we paid €116,-. When entering the room there was a light smell of "old room", but nothing to worry about at all. The room was divided into two sleeping areas, one double bed... More

We were in room 8 this time for three nights. The room was a bit small but adequate. We stayed here last year and had a much larger room (maybe 11?). Free courtyard parking is available and easy. Service wasn't as hospitable this year as it appeared the owners were away so the helpers were running the hotel. We tried... More
