“A good hotel once you find it.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 8, 2014

In a traffic free zone (except to locals) you need a SatNav.
Reasonable rooms for a cheap price. Very High tech in an old building. No real views.
Excellent Breakfast with good coffee.
Good and friendly receptionist (The Proprietor I think). Who is a 'propeller head'
Car parking is under the main square and 200metres from the hotel. your bags cannot be unloaded outside the hotel as you cannot drive there. A few cobbles are in the way also so take light luggage!
Pau is a lovely town with some great views of the Pyrenees but not from the hotel

Room Tip: Do not think room position matters

Good sized room, had everything you needed, friendly desk staff, yes it's not luxury but for 67 euro what are you expecting ? AND it has the most amazing view from your balcony of the gorgeous square below but make sure your window is properly closed at bedtime or you hear all the revellers coming home in the early hours. (it's a student town !)

My room had a wet carpet smell and did not feel clean at all, bed was uncomfortable and overall I did not enjoy my week here. Was with partner on his business trip so didn't complain - I am sure there are much better hotels at similar price in Pau.

This hotel was perfect for our needs. We had a big room (two bedrooms) and the beds were comfortable. The bathroom was large and just fine. The location is great and the staff is very nice and helpful. If we return to Pau (a lovely city) we'll stay here again.

Stayed for 2 nights on a golf trip. Considering the central location with nice view of Place Clemenceau, it was surprisingly quiet. The aircon was individual to the room and worked fine. Shower over bath was a bit feeble but OK. Comfy bed and all very clean. Breakfast at 7.80 € adequate but not exceptional. The desk staff were pleasant and helpful. Handy underground public car park only 4.80 € a night.

3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 25, 2013

The location is in the town center, and close to a number of city highlights. The staff are helpful and knowledgeable, with skill in multiple languages. The hotel offers a value for money breakfast, and there are a range of close by evening eating establishments. The underground public car park is convenient and economical.
I found this to be a good base to explore the Pyrenees by car.
