“Fine for the money”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 23, 2012

Stayed here on a one-night stop-over on the way to the Alps, and thought it was absolutely fine for that purpose and at a reasonable price.

Hard to find? Isn't that what a sat-nav is for? :-) Actually the signage could be a bit better from the road as it took a couple of passes to spot it.

Staff very friendly and helpful and the rooms were good and clean - loved the "mood lighting" strip all along the dado rail! However, I would agree that sound insulation is a bit wanting.

The icing on the cake? Free wi-fi in the room and good secure parking.

Room Tip: Maybe try a top-floor room if you find the possibility of noise a big issue.

We hardly got any sleep because the walls were so thin and we heard the people in the room next to us. They weren't partying. They were just talking and playing music... but this was certainly loud enough to keep us awake. Also we had great difficulty finding the place, as we thought it was in Annecy (as it's called 'ETap Annecy'), and we spent a few hours trying to find it.

A little disappointing compared to other ETAP hotels we have stayed at, such as Rheims. Diffficult to find in the midst of an industrial estate. A chair and better desk are needed in the room. Bathroom was very cramped. But a warm welcome and adequate breakfast.

Recently refurbished, rooms are spotless, large and very much enjoyable. The bathroom door was a little weird though, and there was some mold in the shower, but other than that nothing to declare. Would stay there again anytime.

3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 28, 2011 via mobile

Since the rooms are newly refurbished and are very clean, the stay was very comfortable. Service was very friendly but a bit chaotic.
Sadly the hotel is located far away from annecy's historic center and the beach (both more than 5km), the price of the hotel seems a bit high.

10 minutes drive away from downtown Annecy, and 10 minutes away from a huge Auchan supermarket. complimentary parking with a lot of space. friendly staff, newly renovated, spotless clean.

disadvantages was lack of elevator, we have to carry our suitcase to second floor, and the location of the hotel was not easy to find even with a Garmin GPS.

We have stayed at ETAP Hotel Annecy 4 times during the last 3 years. The location is great, service is good, rooms and bathrooms are clean, the linned is nice and breakfast is fantastic value. We will return.
