“Good address”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 15, 2012

A warm welcome and a comfortable, spacious modern room - just what we needed !

We took a room with two double beds (winner of a design award and shown on FR3 television), the big beds and bedding were super comfortable (for those who like firm matresses, crisp white bedlinen with large fluffy doonas) . The toilet was separate from the shower and sink which was practical as we were three. Breakfast was served with a smile.
We stayed just for a night to break a long journey so a pity we didn't get to see more of the town. Definitely an adresse to return to. Thank you.

Room Tip: It was a friday night and being in the center there was a bit of noise from the street (voices, not...

5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 4, 2012

At the time of writing this review all the recent reviews are in French, which says a lot about this hotel. It is situated down a narrow one-way street and it's very easy to drive right past. The hotel does have a small garage but if you drive straight on at the end of the street through the traffic lights there is a large public car park about a 5 minute walk from the hotel.

Once inside the hotel is light and airy with imaginative decoration. A very warm welcome from the owners (Madame speaks excellent English), free wifi and we walked up to the room. No lift. The room was spotless and beautifully decorated, with a very comfortable bed. There was not a great deal of storage space, but quite enough for a one or two night stay.

The hotel is right in the centre of the city. Restaurants are all around but walking up to the Place Jean Jaunes will provide you with over a dozen options in one large square. There was a some traffic noise, and when we were there some construction work was taking place on the hotel opposite. The colours of the breakfast room light up your morning and the croissants were first rate. Observing the guests at breakfast it seemed that most were business people, which might explain why most of the recent reviews are in French. Highly recommendable, but be aware that getting into and out of St. Etienne needs a GPS and some luck as the road system is busy and complicated. But this hotel made the effort worthwhile.
