“Clean, comfortable no frills hotel”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 11, 2012

Stayed 4 days visiting family. Hotel is clean and reasonably comfortable without any touches of luxury. Room was fairly basic but functional and the bed was fine. Breakfast was a plus point with a good variety and choice. Staff spoke little English but were pleasant and welcoming. hotel situated at the north end of St Etienne with very little to reccommned it in the immediate vicinity. However the main tram line to the city centre is only 2 minutes walk and the journey takes about 10 minutes.
If you want to keep costs down and dont intend spending much time in your room this will do niecely. Free wifi in the rooms as well!

5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 18, 2007

I stayed there for nearly 2 weeks and I was given a refurbished room.
The room was nice, calm, and well equipped. Internet is totally free.

Hotel staff is nice and helpful. Food & Beverages are not too expansive and very useful when you don't want to eat in a restaurant.

I recommend this hotel, I would stay there again.

  • Liked — Calm, near the city center, tramway, internet WIFI
