“Very friendly reception in an old B and B”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 16, 2012

We stayed here as an end of holiday staton a journey back through Italy. We chose it because it was cheap and well located. I think we had been spoiled as we had stayed at some great hotels on our trip and this was the money saving last one.

Do note it is a traditional old-school French B and B. It could do with a complete refurbishment. However if you like staying in quirky places this could be fine for you.

Madame was so friendly and helpful.

Breakfast was basic but OK

You could pay 25 euros more and get a modern hotel...

Room Tip: A room on the front may be a little noisy.... but it does have a good view.

A lovely stay in Aix Les Bains made all the more wonderful by the fabulous owners of this hotel! Such warmth and friendliness, and always ready to help! We had a roof terrace leading out from our doors on the second floor that gave wonderful views of the mountains - as well as a little table to enjoy a drink in the evening. A budget hotel, but perfect for our needs!

Room Tip: One with a roof terrace and view of Cat's Tooth Mountain - La Dent du Chat!

The lady working at this hotel is extremely friendly and goes beyond what I've seen in any hotels I have stayed in before, let alone a cheap 2 stars such as this one.
The hotel is an old building full of history and there is a picture of what it used to look like in 1885...what a change from traditional chains which all look the same.
I will definitely be back for the amazing staff and the great value.

Room Tip: No elevator as its an old building but that was fine.

We stayed in a double room on the 1st (American 2nd) floor at the Hotel Annapolis which has a door open to a roof top terrace, where you can see the Chat du Dent mountain in the background and the train station in the foreground.It was no frills, but it was large and a great place to see fireworks from the lake on a Saturday night. It was very clean and the hotel owner is gracious and friendly. For an extra 2 euros a day we had access to a small kitchen with microwave, refrigerator, cups, plates and a small table to eat on. The hotel gives you a free bus pass to take the bus in front of the train station to the Grand Porte, where there are beautiful esplanades, Saturday market, shaded beaches and a variety of restaurants. I love this lake and have returned to Aix les Bains many times for its scenery, its lovely cafes and parks. While there was no ac in our room, we had a fan which did the job well. The room was very comfortable and we enjoyed the reasonable price. I highly recommend this hotel.

Room Tip: Since there is no elevator, I suggest staying on the 1st floor in the back, where you have the terra...

I arrived very late (and very tired) from Paris and was given a warm welcome. The outstanding thing about Hotel Annapolis is the delightful owner, who does everything to make guests feel happy and comfortable. From offering advice about things to see and do in the area to friendly chats at breakfast, A. was the perfect host.
The room was spacious and comfortable with older style furnishing, which I found charming, and a good sized bathroom. This is not luxury accommodation but more than satisfactory and extremely well maintained. The rooom had a television and a fan but there were no facilities to make tea/coffee, which was the only small thing I might have wanted to change.
There is no lift in the hotel. The public areas are welcoming and very attractively furnished.
Breakfast was simple but plentiful - croissants, rolls, coffee and juice.
The hotel is a 2-3 minutes walk to the train station and a few more minutes in the other direction takes you straight into the heart of Aix-les-Bains.
A very highly recommended place to stay in this beautiful town.
