“Excellent location”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 30, 2012

If you are visiting Dijon, this three-star hotel is the perfect location. It is in the centre, within easy walking distance of most major tourist attractions and restaurants. The staff was friendly and the rooms, though small, were very clean. There is also low-cost parking opposite the hotel - 13 euros for two nights.

The other plus is a lovely central courtyard with trees, flowers and lots of seating area. A nice breeze blows through making it an idle setting for an afternoon tea or evening drink and chatting with friends.

There are two restaurants, one of them a more expensive dining experience. The food was good, but not remarkable and the wine list was very pricey. On sunny spring and summer days, be sure to ask for a table on the terasse.

My four star rating is because of location and the terasse. The rooms themselves and the restaurant only warrant a three.

Room Tip: The standards rooms are all on the street side and very noisy, making it difficult to sleep with the...

We arrived and parked in St Anne's car park opposite. Only six Euros overnight! A good start. When booking in we were told our room number by 2 female Receptionists who were polite and then given the key. No Porter offered, which I thought wasn't on for a 3 Star Hotel.

The room was okay, noisy in the morning being woken by the bin men at 6.30am, and the Duvet was so heavy it was like pulling up a bag of coal every time it slipped down the bed. Separate toilet and shower were alright; hot and powerful. Wanted to leave ASAP.

Room Tip: If you are offered a room directly facing the St Anne's car park, refuse! The bin men come at 6...

Just returned from 4 nights at this hotel. A review from someone who travels widely worldwide. If you are expecting a modern chain hotel, then this is not the place for you. This hotel is a traditional old building familiar in most of Dijon - great location by the way. I stayed in a standard room on the second floor - so cheapest they do and a good price. It was a typically Continental European size - small yes - bathroom and separate toilet bigger than the bed area. Fully rennovated bath and comfy bed. If you want to hang out in your room all day, yes you might want a bigger place. Flat screen TV but only French speaking channels. Breakfast was just fine - it is a European continental - big selection of breads, fruits, cold cuts, cheeses, scrambled eggs, cereals etc. But if you are expecting full English or American breakfast - no. Staff fluent in English and very nice, helpful. Hallways did smell musty - but rooms were no problem. Room service prompt and excellent food. In total, not sure what everyone is moaning about unless they were expecting the Hilton.

Don't be fooled by the gorgeous pictures on their own and partner websites of beautifully decorated, boutique styled rooms that you might expect from a 'Exclusive' hotel claiming to have completed a renovation. We could have been in an Ibis. The carpet was filthy, the fitted furniture hideous, and the room was freezing cold and we couldn't work out how to heat it. When I pointed out this advertising discrepancy (the decor) to the receptionist, he gave the impression of being barely able to care less, informing me that only some of the rooms (maybe ten, he vaguely calculated) had been renovated. And that they were at a different price. On the other hand, having just come from a terrible experience in Courchevel trying to get a chef in a very expensive hotel to prepare vegan food four nights running, the chef here excelled, producing a delicious and exquisitely presented vegan supper, and for an extremely reasonable 10 euros.

We had a small but adequate room in this hotel for a couple of nights and we found the staff friendly and helpful and the location, although about 20 minutes walk from the station, was only a short walk from the historic centre of dijon. The carpets were pretty dirty but the bathroom was clean and the hotel had character.
It was also close to some very good restaurants.

We stayed at this hotel for 1 night in October on the way to Reims, the 3 rd floor room was dirty, cramped and airless. The room was nothing like the pictured rooms.
The corridor from the lift looked like a condemned apartment block , filthly carpets and marked walls and was pitch black till the sensor turned the lights on leaving the lift.. The bathroom had been renovated but was poorly laid out and you could not stand at the toilet due to a angled ceiling above.
The breakfast room is an underground bunker decorated in 70's style.
This hotel got the award for the worst hotel on our 3 week tour of France.
