“Excellent”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 28, 2013

Excellent hotel experience. Great atmosphere. Good service.

Only negative comments:
- A bit far from the city center (20mn by tram from central train station)
- Noisy rooms (no double windows and trams can be heard passing in front of the hotel late in the evening and early in the morning).

Goregous rooms and service very attentive. Again this hotel is a training hotel where things need to be improved, as put 2 glasses if champagne when I have booked a room with champagen, make sure there are no dirty glasses inside.
Breakfast is AMAZING.

Based in a wonderful old school building, the hotel is also a hotel management training centre. Our room was excellent, with good facilities. Service was mixed - some students had a lot to learn! The restaurant was poor and expensive. The bar area was good and very popular.

Having just returned from a 3 night break at the College Hotel and never having stayed there before, I can advise that the hotel and the service received there far exceeded my expectations. Firstly, the building itself is an architectural delight, very well and imaginatively furnished and extremely comfortable. Two very,very minor niggles commented upon by others in Trip Advisor. Superb mood lighting in the rooms but not bright enough to read by in the evening, nor was there adequate lighting in the bathroom to be able to apply makeup very easily. The bathroom sink is smaller than one would expect. However, this did not in any way detract from our enjoyment. The service was friendly and professional, especially the lady who checked us in on arrival. 10 out of 10 to her, she took us to the lovely room and explained patiently how everything worked and was very happy to answer any queries about the city itself. Other staff were also very helpful and friendly. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this hotel to anyone. Thank you for a wonderful stay

Hotel has a wonderful interior, be it a little "gloomy", design. Rooms are well fitted, super bed, excellent bathroom with good shower and bath. Standard rooms are not very spacious, which can be tricky for a family (babybed). Bar and restaurant are excellent, breakfast was superb. If you travel to the hotel with a car you should know that parking in front of the hotel to drop off lugage is complicated. Staff is very helpfull and will valet park your car, but its a bit of a hassle. Staff in general is friendly but some are very young and inexperienced, so be patient. On a summers day there is a large and very nice terrace!

4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 2, 2012

This is one of the loveliest hotels in terms of the setting. I found the staff to be very good and the food excellent. The room was quiet and very comfy except for the ridiculous lack of lighting. Obviously all hotel designers think hotel rooms are just for romance; hence the lack of proper lighting. This one really went too far: the rooms are furnished nicely but with a lot of black. The lamps are great for mood lighting but no good for getting dressed, reading in bed, working, unpacking, finding your way to the minibar, reading the emergency evacuation instructions! Great shower and ok toiletries. The bar is welcoming and dinner in the restaurant excellent. I'd stay again but will bring a torch.

Room Tip: 119 was quiet and comfy.
