“Great parking - but you'll pay for it”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 21, 2009

Part of Etap chain follows standard Etap layout... but seems to be manned more! Wifi did not work at all. Room was generally clean but there was a bit of grafitti under bunkbed.
Location is good town centre bars and restaraunt all walkable. On a tighter budget there is an excellent pizza shop very close by (has an advert in the lobby - 2 for 1 pizzas)

3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 5, 2008

We had a one night stay at the Etap Hotel, Le Mans central on a Saturday night in late May.

The hotel is located down a quiet side street about 10-15 minutes walk from the main railway station, a 5 minute walk to Le Republique and about 10 minutes to the Old Town.

It is situated next door to The Mercure.

We were surprised when we entered the room as we only had a double bed - not that this bothered us as there were only two people in the part - however, all other Etap hotel rooms have had the "bunk bed" above above the double bed for a third person.

We checked in at about 7pm and this went smoothly. Access to the bedroom is via a swipe card and we were given this at checkin. On our keycard holder was another hand written number and (Given our limited understanding of French) we didn't know what this was for. It was not until 10pm when we returned to the hotel that we realised the front door was locked. A sign in the window said that access to the hotel was via the Mercure Hotel next door (they are both part of the Accor Hotel Chain). We went to the Mercure and asked for directions and got pointed in the direction of a rear entrance (in the car park). This rear entrance was secured with a keypad - hence the number on the swipe card holder we had. However, the number written on the holder was less than inteligible and we made numerous attempts to enter a four digit code (2567/3567/3287 etc etc etc) by guessing what the code could be. In fact the hand writing was so bad that we were eventually helped out by two other guests who input a five digit code!

Breakfast, the following morning, was served in the basement and for 5 Euros consisted of the standard Etap fare - Toast, Cereals, Yoghurt, fruit juice etc etc.
