Julie, the new owner and Maitre De, is extremely helpful and friendly. Her plans for renovation will elevate this hotel to where it should be. The hotel is well located in the heart of this beautiful city with an ancient and well cared for old citadel town. Jonathan and his cycling mates

We had very nice stay here. The owners were very helpful especially since we don't speak French. They called for us to see if a place in the mountains was available. The rooms are older but very clean. As someone noted that have a lovely friendly black lab.

If you need these things you will find them here but otherwise it is a dull and dreary hotel - but everything works. The Chinese restaurant about a 5 minute walk away isn't wonderful but staff are friendly.

Third floor front rooms have balconies, bath tubs and electric roll down shutters. Convenient to tram, bus, grocery, banks, and short but steep walk to old town. Very nice helpful management and friendly dog!

This hotel has had better times but is not degenerated. The rooms are clean and large, the sanitary is sufficient. The restaurant is quite good.

We just got back from a weeks skiing in the Serre Chevalier valley. We stayed at the Hotel Vauban which I can highly recommend as a base. It does have a little of a 1970s feel to it, but you have to remember this IS France! It is located in Briancon which is right at the very end of the... More

On the plus side, the hotel is excellently located. The ski lift is just a few minutes away on foot. There are automated blinds for the window, so you can sleep in complete darkness. Showering is possible in the room and in a shared shower is available in the hall, so you don't need to queue! Parking is available for... More

I stayed at the Vauban in May 2007, as Briancon was the setting for one of the stages of the Giro d'Italia (Italy's version of the Tour de France). Briancon is a really wonderful little town and the Alps are beautiful but let me stick to reviewing the hotel. I booked the hotel through venere.com. We arrived very late at... More
