Our friendly, welcoming hosts are the couple who own this boutique hotel and who renovated it completely in 2006. The private parking lot is a great asset as it allows one to leave the car and walk to the restaurants which are all nearby. Our very comfortable, quiet and spacious room on the 4th floor was reasonably priced at 108...

Booked this place as the reviews were great on Trip Advisor. We were not disappointed. Hotel is centrally located, had car parking and friendly staff. Our room was large, and I liked the unique design which included extra furniture than the normal hotel. Bathroom was also spacious, and it was nice to have a bath. Quality bedding topped off a...

This was a wonderful find in Pau, the nicest hotel we stayed in during a 2-week visit to France, with parking, a good breakfast, generous stylish rooms, and a wonderful man night and day at the desk who made us feel completely at home.

This lovely old building offers comfortable and quirky accommodation within a few minutes walk of the Place Clemenceau, with the added benefit of private and secure parking.

This is a lovely old hotel that has been updated with modern conveniences. We were completely charmed by the gentleman at the front desk (wish I had gotten his name!) and the hotel itself.

The Hotel Bristol was a great find, located right smack, bang in the centre of Pau... and what's more it has its own parking which seems to be a rarity with hotels these days. The staff couldn't have been more welcoming and helpful eventhough we arrived quite late in the evening and hadn't pre-booked. They even took the time to...

This hotel is conveniently situated near the pedestrian area of downtown Pau, and it is a quick walk to all of the sights. My stay was restful—the bed was comfortable, the bathroom was enormous and the hotel itself was very quiet. Only two quibbles: the wifi was very spotty, and 12€ for breakfast is a bit ridiculous for the provinces.
