“Great Value Hotel”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 1, 2013

Stayed with wife and 2 small kids during the Easter break and had a great time in this beautiful city. Hotel is well located and rooms have been recently renovated. Brand new playground in the backyard about to open and plenty of places to go within short walking distance. Service is not great and only the towels were replaced everyday.

Room Tip: Don't forget to book parking in advance if you are driving.

Our apartment in Annecy was just amazing. The rooms were spacious, clean and very modern. The staff were all accommodating and very friendly. We loved the position, in between the old and new. A comfortable walk to everything. The old town is amazing. We found ourselves still strolling around late at night enjoying the charm and history of this amazing place. Being winter obviously a lot of attractions around the lake were closed. But dusted in snow, it looked beautiful. Would definitely love to visit Annecy again.

This is a really cute Hotel with an excellent location right by old town Annecy. We originally planned to stay at another Hotel further outside the City...and are so happy we changed to this. I hope to get back to Annecy again soon...and will aim to stay here! The WiFi connection worked fine.

We stayed in Le Royal as a stopover from a ski resort to the airport, and it was a last moment decision, plus, we were a large group, yet they were able to accommodate for us. The rooms were fine, the service - very good (albeit it took 2 attempts to get an extra blanket - but that's a minor issue). The location is in the middle of the city, within walking distance from shopping and dining areas. Parking can be challenging, so I'd suggest reserving a parking spot with the hotel.

We enjoyed the privilodges so much we extended our stay in lovely Annecy!

Apartment was clean and in a great location, only downside was the Internet not being very reliable.

Would definitely stay here again!

First, the Internet, the only negative, don't count on wifi working in your room. It didn't. Good reception in the lobby with a desktop available to patrons.

This self-catering hotel is in a perfect location to explore Annecy. Right on one of the main streets in the city, it is a five minute walk into the old town and a five minute walk to the lake. Excellent shops and restaurants and a grocery are just a stone's throw from the property.

The hotel offers parking (at a charge) but there is very limited parking in the city and this is a major plus. We were travelling as a party of six. Two adults with little kids and two grandparents. We had a one bedroom suite and a studio. Both came with well equipped kitchenettes with a sink and a refrigerator. The living areas are compact but manageable. It comes with a flat screen tv and adequate channels in multiple languages including english. The bathrooms are spacious although the lighting is dim. There is no maid service and linens and towels are changed only weekly. The studio had a beautiful view overlooking a park and a church and the mountains.

For children, adjacent to the hotel, is a lovely kid's park, with lots of equipment for the children and, weather permitting, there are lots of kids to play with. All in all, this is a great place for families. The prices are modest compared to the full service hotels in town.

Room Tip: For couples, the studio is very adequate. For families of three or four or more, the suite comes wi...

We arrived on Sunday and actually Annecy center is very hard to drive due to some road works. After a while, we finally found the place. We were very lucky that we found a parking space just next to it on the street for free.

The person speaks a bit of English with french accent, but she is a great help when we asked for directions of the nearest supermarket, which is just 20 steps around the corner.

We reserved an apartment room for one night, the room was very very tight, hardly good for us to move around. We were 2 persons. The room was ok, for this price in the center of Annecy, no need to complain. There were basic cookwares for us to make a meal. There was water boiler, coffee makers, soap, detergent for dish cleaning in the kitchen. On the bed, there was a welcome kit with tea, coffee, and cookies.The fridge was clean and the room has AC. The bed was embedded on the wall, which was opened up when we arrived. It was a very high bed I have to say. You need to almost climb up to it.

The WIFI was free and it is possible to connect with multiple devices.
