“Well located Hotel”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 23, 2013

Stayed 1 night on business in April. Booked the Hotel for its location as it is really close to the bus & train station, literally a few minutes walk.

Check in was smooth although the staff were not particularly friendly & didn't recognise my A Club membership. Rooms are standard Novotel - a bit bare & basic but comfortable.

I took dinner in the bar which was good but not great - they really need to employ more staff in this area as they have to multi task so aren't always at the bar to serve you.

I would stay here again due to its location - the bus from Lyon airport is hourly & drops you close to the hotel.

I visited the Novotel for a business trip at the venue next door, the location was brilliantly placed for work and pleasure and a very short walk from the train station. I agree with some of the other comments the hotel is very expensive for what you pay compared to other hotels in the vicinity!

The parking is a little tricky but once you get the hang of exactly were you have to park it works fine. Security is very much active in the parking area. The internet in the room was a little weak. Worked fine in the hall way or lobby though. I had an office in Grenoble so I did not use it very much. The Gym had 4 pieces. All the pieces were new Technogym. No sauna or steam room. It starts at 0600 and closes at 2300. The staff is very quick at the desk and know their job well. The location is in the heart of the real city. Everything is there and within walking distance.

Besides the close location to the train station, this hotel has nothing impressive or to complain. It is a hotel for business travelers. Rooms were ok, bed was firm. Don't recommend the restaurant. You can find much better eating places in town.

Stayed December 2012, traveled with family

I had a great stay for 1 night at this hotel. The location is absolutely perfect 2 mins away from both the train and bus stations. Service was good and the staff very helpful. If i need to fond an improvement point the size of the room was a little bit small. Anyway, i will come back to this hotel for my next stay in Grenoble.

Hotel is very expensive for what it delivers. Rating is average to good - nothing special. Internet is included, however, slow and bad connectivitiy. Very disappointing is the restaurant. Selection is poor and service unfriendly. This happened to me several times. Management seems not to be aware of this. Novotel center is well located close to the city and the scientific center of Minatec / CEA. Good news is that new hotels will be built close by and this will hopefully produce more competition and improve the overall service.

Room Tip: All rooms are pretty quiet. Upper rooms better.
