This hotel is very nice and in a GREAT location. It is near the city center, tram stops, the church, shopping, etc. LOTS of restaurants near by and a Carefour near by for inexpensive water and groceries. It does have lots of street noise due to its location. People are out until 2-3am on the street and trash/delivery trucks around...

Situated right in the centre of town its ideal for walking/tram around the main part of town and the local restaurants. Rooms were basic but clean and well equipped and the price was very good for the location. The cheese and wine between 6 pm and 8 pm was a lovely idea.

This hotel is in a brilliant location in the pedestrianised area of the old town. It is within a few minutes walk of the cathedral and other sights, right next to shopping streets and Carrefour and there is a wide choice of restaurants all around. In addition it is only a five minute walk to the number 1 bus which...

Pros: This hotel is lovely, and central located. Very clean room with a comfortable bed. You're literally a 5 minute walk from MariaDeck (tram to and from airport). It was a nice touch that from 5pm-8pm daily the hotel offer free wine and cheese in the lobby. Cons: The only criticism I would give is in relation to the “do...

This was the 2nd time we'd stayed at the Continental & found it just as welcoming as last year. The hotel is reasonably priced, in a very handy location for everything, rooms are clean & comfortable (French city sized so don't expect big), breakfast is very pleasant & staff are most helpful. The free cheese & wine is a lovely...

The best thing of this hotel is its location, very quiet zone, but near (400mt) the bus stop from airport and in a central position of the city with restaurants, bars and some nightlife (place gambetta), also shops within the Place des Grandes Hommes. We could take a walk without cars in the Cours de LIntendance and 15 minutes after...

Great location, wonderful staff, discounted parking in city garage. Wine & cheese in the afternoon was delightful. The salon where this is served is beautiful, but tiny, and very little seating in lobby, but the wine and cheese were plentiful and the staff very courteous.
