This place dates from the Rennaissance, but you cannot tell, that's how good the fixing up is... Built as private residence originally, it becomes Town hall in the 19th Century and is a museum nowadays. The current Town hall is across the street and I imagine politicians still use the splendor of the old place for special events. Most impressive.... More

As part of a walking trip in the centre of Orleans ,it's definitely worth seeing. Orléans is a rare thing it's been vamped but it doesn't look like a dysneyesque production and the people inthe restaurants rue de Bourgogne are not extras so you had better book your lunch if you visit at weekends

Hotel Groslet is worth looking at as it is very interesting architecture with fancy intricate brickwork. Also look at the garden. Both are free to see.

This former Hotel de Ville (townhall) is free to visit and worth a detour for the lovely architecture and decor. Only a few rooms but you'll get a sense of the Orleans of the past and good views onto the Cathedral and garden. In Autumn this was a nice treat.

Very close to Orleans cathedral, but almost entirely off the tourist track, to the point that the lady on reception was keeping a score sheet of visitors, and where they came from. It's a sixteenth century building with sumptuous interiors to admire, and some nice Renaissance cabinets and furniture. There's a bronze statue of Joan of Arc outside still showing... More

The building is near to the cathedral and it is free. It will take about 15 minutes. The building in itself is worth a visit: beautiful staircase outside, statue of Jeanne d'Arc outside and lovely details in the courtyard. Inside the rooms are completely furnished and there are some lovely Chinese vases.

Our tour guide was determined to find this place and we are so glad he did. It is a gem! Completely free to enter and absolutely full of history. We were shown Spanish leather on chairs, tapestries, amazing carvings on wood, the list goes on. It would be so easy to miss this place because it is not signposted and... More

Its free & well worth the look. The furnishings are beautiful and original. You can purchase a small brochure/booklet with information on this wonderful building. Be sure to look at the brilliant Joan of Arc statue at the outside stairway. There are free toilets there too.
