A basic, drab hotel with not a lot going for it apart from being a 10 minute walk to the station. Parking was a nightmare as it is 2 hour parking locally (there are about 3 spaces behind the hotel which presumably can be booked - but if you have a long car forget it) so we ended up parking...

The hotel is in a pretty good location considering the price - a 10 minute walk from the train station and about a 10-15 minute walk to the centre of the town. the downside of the location was that it is opposite a very large church and when we stayed there on a weekend, the entire Sunday was punctuated with...

My partner booked this hotel. I like my creature comforts so was a bit concerned that it was only a two star hotel, however the reviews weren't bad and we wrte only going to be there for three days so I decided to keep an open mind. My main concern is when the room is very small and there's nowhere... More

We booked a room here at the last minute- it was the last room within walking distance from Nantes central station for under 100 euros. The hotel was easy to find and in a good location- on an interesting street with lots of little cafes and shops. There was a big supermarket (intermarche) a five minute walk away, as well... More

This small hotel is clean, quiet and well located. We walked from the train station (north exit) with our luggage in less than 10 minutes. The staff were very helpful. The rooms were quite okay, if dated, but the shower worked better than at some other places we have been staying. The breakfast buffet for E 9 included coffee, some... More

Stayed for 1 might in this hotel last week. It was cheap enough and clean but only has the basics with no bar and only 2 car parking spaces available. It is in a great location for sight seeing around Nantes and Nantes itself is a fantastic city with lots to see and do.

I stayed in this hotel for 1 week on a business trip. The rooms are quite small but clean and cozy. The hotel is ideally located close the the historic center, the Erdre river (nice for running, kayak and other activities ...) and many good restaurants and fast food places. Despite it's location I had no problems with outside noise.... More

I booked hotel this as our base for Hellfest 2014. It's less than a ten minute walk from the central train station where you may well have been dropped off by the airport coach that runs from outside the terminal. It's absolutely fine for a few days stay - nice and central location, you'll be in the centre of Nantes... More

Despite the small rooms and a few outdated fixtures, this hotel is a wonderful place to stay when visiting Nantes. Right in front if one lovely church, it is only about an eight-minute walk to the cathedral and château. What's more, the street that takes you there is lined with restaurants, shops, a market, a laundromat, a pharmacy, etc. -... More

If you want a clean room with comfy bed and no other demands, then this hotel ticks the boxes as its location is ideal for a stroll into the heart of the city. Also handy for the rail station. The staff are courteous and will do their best to help. Some rooms are very small, but all very well looked... More
