This place has been given a makeover and is well positioned in the city square. It has a bar and restaurant attached which was nice (nice pizzas) and good menu and staff. The rooms were nice but the air conditioning doesn't work and the shower in the morning took 10 minutes to warm up. There is a fair amount of... More

The hotel is well located in Clermont Ferrand on a lively square. With the windows closed you can block all the noise from the square. But then it gets very very hot inside. At checkin they forgot to tell us that the A/C is controlled at the reception and we couldn't get it too work ( wasn't anybody at the... More

The room was lovely, with a view onto the Place Jaude. Any noise from the square was avoidable due to the double-glazing. Staff were very helpful and spoke excellent English. Beautiful breakfast, and the restaurant downstairs was very convenient at the end of a long day. A tram stop was literally just outside the door. No hesitation in recommending this... More

T'he room was ok but definitely t'he access to at least some of t'he rooms should be improved. T'he elevator is not located At same level of the rooms, so you always have to carry the luggage along some stairs.

Thank you for your comment on the site.

You couldn't be more central but with a car park nearby. By the way the hotel proposed a special deal for the car park, but in the end I just used the machines and it worked out cheaper. Room was fine with unsecured wi fi. Everything was clean and the breakfast was good . I'll certainly use it again when... More

Just what we needed for an overnight stay . Parking available for €9.50 close by . Nice room with a balcony overlooking the Place de Jaude. Good breakfast & evening meal options but close to many restaurants, bars and cafes too. Very friendly & helpful staff.

This place has apparently been renovated recently and this has been done in style! Everything here is very modern in a positive sense. For all the rest I can only repeat what has been said by other reviewers: good location, very friendly staff, clean, good beds, nice bathroom, coffee maker in the room.
