“Comfortable and centrally located”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 19, 2014

I had the studio which is typically larger than any other hotel you will find in France for this price range. It had a nice bed, desk with flat screen, and kitchenette. the room had a great view of downtown. It is less than five minutes to the tranm and 15 min walk to the train station. the only issue I had is with the shower head which squirted a strong stream of water. The shower head is also facing the door that if you turned on the water strongly, it can squirt straight into the room. Breakfast was 8 euros cheaper than the standard 10. When they say free wifi, they mean free wifi on the present day and not on checkout day. So after midnight, you lose wifi. Would definitely stay here again. The reception was very helpful.

Room Tip: Ask for a room that end in 0 such as 20 30 40. You will get a corner room with two different views.

The Hotel is slightly less than a serviced apartment. Sink, coffee maker ad washing machine is thrown in the room, but there is no tea, coffee, sugar etc. which probably you have to buy or brig in.
The rooms are clean and spacious. However, cleaning and replacement of towels and toiletries is at a charge.
The reception though very friendly and helpful is working only during certain fixed hours.
My incoming calls could not be transferred to the room due to problem with the system. When I suggested to go down to the reception, I was advised to come after 2 hours since there shall be no one at the reception till 2 pm. "the reception shall be closed"
Location is very central.

Room Tip: All rooms are generally the same.

We have an apartment for 4 persons with small kitchen . Actually it is just ok for 2 or 3 persons, as we had only small bedroom with 1 double bed and living room with table and two bed around table. A little bit uncomfortable eat the same place the other people sleep. Our rooms have big windows to floor)! Really cool)!

I stayed here with my brother for 3 nights. We were stuck in Grenoble with a broken down car, so it was a last minute booking. Whilst ‘acceptable’, this was the poorest of the three hotels we used in central Grenoble in the same week, so I would definitely suggest checking my other reviews.

This is a hotel/self catering hybrid the French refer to as ‘apart-hotels’. This basically means it has a sink / hob / fridge in the room, plus some crockery and cutlery. Unfortunately there was no kitchen work surface as such, so preparing any food necessitated using a steel topped table in the bedroom area. It was by far the smallest of 3 ‘apart-hotels’ we used in city locations in France on this trip (2 in Grenoble, 1 in Nice). The kitchenette area was well equipped with a rotary salad drier and an old coffee machine, but this had no filters, so was essentially fairly useless! Suggest bringing paper coffee filters with you if you actually intend to use this, as I wouldn’t know where to look for them in central Grenoble. The fridge was full sized, which is a plus. The room was pretty small and had nowhere to relax other than lying on the beds, which were fairly spartan – narrow, hard, and equipped with a single pillow each. Our towels were not changed, nor our room cleaned in 3 days – there was only one tea-towel as well, so this was fairly impractical.

The bathroom was OK – shower cubicle was reasonable size, no bath, separate toilet cubicle, but oddly this had no sink. The free Wi-Fi was almost useless – I am not exaggerating or joking when I say I have used dial-up that was faster – 2 cups joined with string would be similarly efficacious. The access on most 3G mobiles is significantly faster. Do not stay here if you need Wi-Fi to hook up remotely for work, as my brother tried to and it was hopeless.

In terms of service, we had to check in on a Sunday. Website states check in starts at 2pm. We arrived at around 12.30pm not expecting to be able to access our rooms, which we were not. We were advised check in is from 2pm. We asked if there was anywhere we could leave our bags, and were told they could be put in the office behind reception, but this would be locked until 4pm. So, we left with our bags and returned at around 1.45pm to wait for check in. Nobody showed up until 4pm – hence the comment about the office being locked – although no explanation had been given at 12.30pm that we would not, in fact, be able to check in at 2pm. This was pure disregard on the part of the staff rather than a misunderstanding as my brother’s French is pretty fluent, and so was the receptionist’s English. To add to the general insult, the girl we spoke to at 12.30pm walked straight past the locked office to leave for the day on the dot of 2pm, without offering any further advice on when we may be able to check in. This, in my view, is a disgraceful lack of basic customer service. The final downside was the pervading strong smell of blocked sewer in the ground floor area and some areas on other floors (although thankfully not our room) - really unpleasant.

On the plus sides, breakfast was OK and the location is perfect, right in the heart of the city and only 100 yards from a tram stop.

Conveniently situated, clean and comfortable. Enjoyed my 6 nights here although it's a little pricey for 1 person it's worth it for the catering facilities. I was there to walk in the hills so I really appreciated having a bath to come 'home' to. Hot water was plentiful and VERY hot!
There is free WI-FI but the connection is very slow, ususlly timing out before the page opens. If internet is important to you opt for the pay version which i found to be fast and reliable: 7 euros per day or 20 euros per week.
There are two supermarkets within about 3 min. walk, a 'Mace' on Rue Felix Viallet and a 'Casino' on Rue Montorge. The cable car is also just a few minutes walk away. (7.05 eruos return, curious price!).
TV has no english channels, at least one news channel in english would be appreciated.
I would happily stay thee again and intend to try some of the other Residhotels. Has anyone stayed in Residhotel Festival, Cannes le Bocca? I don't see it on Tripadvisor.

Room Tip: Only some rooms have balconies but there is not much of a view anyway, so it's not really impror...
