“Nice view of the lake”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 25, 2013

The hotel is just beside the lake. It's about 15 minutes walk to the city center, a little bit long but a nice walk along the lake.

When I made the booking, there were not many avilable rooms and I get a room without the view to the lake. The room is quite good, cozy and clean. The bathroom area is spacious and nice. Free wifi and free parking is offered by the hotel. The public area of the hotel is nice decorated.

The owner is friendly and helpful, showing us the way to the city center and give us warm welcome.

My wife and I stayed here for a few days on route to Provence. The location was great within walking distance of the lake and centre of Annecy for shopping and restaurants. We enjoyed an excellent view of the lake from our balcony. Alexandra and Marie were very helpful during our stay, especially taking the trouble to return some property I had left in our room

We stayed here recently, for the second time! The new owners are really making a difference. It was so much more friendly and welcoming this time around. The sisters were helpful and nothing was too much trouble. The rooms with the lake view are excellent. Good breakfast, good parking. Easy walk into the centre of town.

Will certainly return if we were in the area again

Alexandra and Marie Laure have been owners of this wonderful hotel for about 9 months.

We were in Annecy to take part in a large cycle race and they accommodated all their guests by opening the breakfast service ar 5:30 on Sunday 7th and then again for us only at 7:00 am on the 9th July when we left.

The view over Lake Annecy from the terrace is superb and there is free parking for the whole period. It is true that the hotel is a 15 minute walk into town but we never took the bikes even though there is a cycle path 200 metres away that goes all the way not only to the town centre but all the way around the lake. There is a workout for you!! Its a 24 mile trip around the lake. If you fancy something more energetic the cycle path runs all the way to Albertville which is 40 km away and is flat the whole distance. An 80 km round trip.

Wi Fi is available throughout the hotel and works well everywhere. There is no pool but there are bathing "beaches" nearby that are packed with people.

All the restaurants we went to were recommended by Alexandra and the choices were excellent. The hotel rooms are not expensive and given the friendly and attentive service this hotel has to be classed as excellent.

Room Tip: You have to ask for a room with a lake view

The only reason I am giving this a 4 instead of a 5 overall is the location. It is in a lovely spot, and great if you drive into the area, but if you arrive by bus or train it would be very difficult. It is a good 20 minute walk to the city, albeit a beautiful walk, but it is a trek...
I adore the town of Annecy, and loved spending 2 days there. The hotel has a lovely patio with lake views out front where we ate our picnic dinner the first night and our breakfast the next morning. Rooms for the most part are typical in size for older European properties, well appointed with lovely bathrooms. Be advised the economy rooms are VERY small.
The owners and staff are delightful and very helpful. English quite good, and I am sure they can communicate in several languages too! We had a problem with our rental car, and they went above and beyond to help us get it resolved.
They offer a large buffet breakfast for an additional charge.
A beautiful sejour in the French Alps. Don't miss an opportunity to ride a bike in Annecy. A beautiful bike path around much of the lake. Rentals available near the hotel.

We really enjoyed our 2 night stay in this lovely hotel, 20 minutes walk along the lake shore from the old town of Annecy. The two sisters who manage the hotel are very friendly and helpful, providing a lot of information about things to do in the old town, restaurants, museums etc. They even tolerated us practicing our French on them. Our room on the first floor had a view of the lake, the room was very clean and comfortable and the free wi-fi worked well. There is free parking. The breakfast is optional but I would highly recommend it for both choice and quality. This hotel provides very good value and many personal touches in its service.

Had a lovely stay here. Clean and comfortable room with a view of the lake through the skylights in the bedroom and bathroom. Breakfast was a more than adequate buffet, there was lots of parking, free Wifi (we were on the top floor and it worked okay) and a free-to-use computer in the comfortable lounge. The hotel is a 20 minute walk from town, but it is such a lovely walk along the lake that it is a pleasure, not a chore. It is up a steep hill, so perhaps not suitable for people not able to walk too well.

We found the staff to be extremely friendly and helpful, bringing us hot water for tea whenever we asked.

Room Tip: Ask for a lake view.
