“Very bad experience”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed September 29, 2013

This hotel was renovated, but has a lot more to do to attract customers. We spent one night, the mattress was very old, we woke up with backaches. The bath towels were so outdated. They smell bad. We woke up around 9am, and called for breakfast in the room. We were told: " sorry we do not deliver, you had to place your order last night, anyway we only serve breakfast until 9:30 am.
What kind a treatment is that!
We got ready, pay our bill and left.
Not a pleasant place at all.

We stayed overnight. It was expensive considering the shutters were falling off , the bed clothes were old and very worn, shower had dirty grouting all the way round, sink was loose and toilet wobbled. Definitely a beautiful old building though...but dark and with broken lightbulbs in the room didn't add atmosphere. No child friendly food ...we ate in town which was alright.
Lovely big snooker table though...which cost 4 euros to play which is very mean considering we were guests and had paid a lot for a family room.
Bedroom overlooked side street but was above kitchen so lots of noise and excessively loud music playing for ages.
Will not be returning.
Langres is a beautiful town though and well worth a visit.

We booked this as the B&B that we were staying at was full. The room that we stayed in was in serious need of repair. The bathroom has a closet shower that takes at least 5 minutes to get any hot water. If you get claustrophobic in an airplane toilet your in big trouble. The water pressure in the shower was non existent.
The room was very dark and the one window doesn't let adequate light in. The electrics are dubious with lighting "flickering" whilst turned on.
The building has alot of wood in it and if you needed a quick exit in case of fire it was difficult to determine where the fire exits were. We were on the second floor which is accessed with a wooden staircase.
Breakfast was OK but seemed a little disorganized as they kept running out of milk, juice etc.
What really annoyed me is that we were charged tax for 5 people when apparently children under 12 years are not subject to tax. It was not alot but just the principle.
Parking was charged at 6 Euros for the night hmmmm!
There is parking around town if you look.

Langres is a gem of a town, set on a hilltop with medieval walls and narrow cobbled streets. And this old hotel is right in the middle. Family run, and welcoming. Full of lovely old antique furniture, but slightly odd taste in décor (other reviewers have used the term quirky, which is pretty accurate). Evening meal OK (but have had a good deal better in this part of the world). Generous breakfast. A great choice for an overnight stay just off the autoroute.

We stayed for one night in January. The hotel has painted panels throughtout the public rooms and an eclectic style of its own. we understand that the panels were painted by a graduate of Dijon art college. Our double room was very clean, quiet and overlooked a side street. It had a good bathroom with a shower but no bath. The heating was good, which was important because it was very cold. We enjoyed our meal in the evening and the chocolate fondant was very good indeed. The breakfast in the morning was a good buffet continetal breakfast, including cold meats and cheeses, We used the hotel's car park. The wi-fi internet access was good and was freely available. Overall a good central place from which to explore Langres.

We chose this hotel because of the reviews on Trip Advisor. Possible because of the time of year, just after Christmas but we were hugely disappointed. The room was lovely although the bathroom was huge it had no bath and a plastic shower that looked like the "Tardis". The hotel was clean, but not overly friendly or welcoming. We ate dinner in the hotel and were very disappointed with the food and the wine list was incredibly expensive - a real shame.

I honestly don't really know what to make of this hotel. We like old fashioned French and places with some character and so we chose La Poste.

We stayed here for 1 night at the very end of August on our way to Switzerland. Convenient location and a good place to stop with a little time to do a bit of exploring of this walled town. There are still areas of the hotel undergoing some refurbishment (which from previous reviews seems to have been happening for over a year now) which made the stair area feel a bit grubby and the access to the 'swimming pool' was locked. There did not seem to be any outside area apart from a bit of parking so we can only assume the advertised pool was an indooor one as we never got to see it (my husband would have enjoyed a dip on arrival and again before breakfast and was one of the reasons we picked this hotel).

Madame on the desk was lovely and we exchanged pidgin French and English and were made to feel welcome.

Our room was very small and triangular in shape and very, very dark having been modernised in dark purple - purple walls, floor and ceilings and purple bedspread coupled with some possibly fake very dark wood beams. No furniture that I can recall (maybe a desk) as the room was too small for anything much other than the bed. This was large and very comfortable. The bathroom had obviously been created out of part of the room (hence its shape and size) and was modern, clean and very well appointed.

Having checked in we went out for a wander in the early evening sun and as the hotel is centrally located it was convenient for restaurants and bars or for exploring round the walls.

We decided not to eat at the hotel as when we looked in, the restaurant, although charming was quiet and rather empty. We went to a busy little bistro just up the road from the hotel in a square where we could sit outside and have some simple reasonably priced food.

Our room overlooked the front of the hotel and the street. We were woken up at about 5 a.m. by some young man who thought it would be a good idea to rev up his moped for the echoes it produced from the tall buildings all around. Not under the hotel's control obviously but annoying, especially as we had left the window open for some air, there being no air-conditioning. We enjoyed a good breakfast, met more friendly and helpful staff, were introduced to the hotel's 2 dogs (they like their tummys' scratched) and another walk around the walls before setting off on our journey.

So, would we go back? Probably - who wants to stay in clinical sameness all the time? The staff are friendly and helpful, room was clean, bed was comfortable and the location was very convenient. Our room was overpriced I felt at 120Euros but we had difficulty everywhere finding anything much cheaper.
