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. But for some rooms is much worst because when the corridor finishes, to access the room you have to go... More

Thank you for your comment on the site. It is true that access to the room can be complicated because the building is old so we have not been able to get the lift to the bedroom floors but only between floors. We hope to see you soon in our establishment, and don't hesitate to ask to the staff to... More

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.

This funky little hotel is definitely worth trying. The rooms are very clean and comfortable. Right on the local train route for Clermont-Ferrand for easy access to all parts of town. Although the square outside was quite busy and noisy when we arrived on a Sunday afternoon, all was quiet overnight due to the well insulated windows.

Hotel is in center of town, on main square. Very close to shopping malls and Carefour. Hotel is in a classic older bulding, but renovated. Rooms are clean. Food is good. It's little bit noisy when you open the windows, but with closed windows noise is acceptable. You can sleep well.

Had a top floor room so great view down over the square. There was half a flight of stairs from the lift to take the bags up. There was a kettle and a coffee maker, which I believe is unusual for French hotels, but not much choice of tea bags or coffee so take your own. The staff were friendly... More
