“Nice for a one night stay! Tony is a sweetheart!”
Reviewed July 29, 2013

The hotel was clean. Staff was very friendly. We couldn't find it at first because our GPS is a little out of date. Tony was very sweet in helping us find it, even after we had to call him repeatedly. He spoke enough English to help us, thank goodness! Breakfast was decent and was 6.50 euro. It was within walking distance to a little bit of shopping and restaurants. Parking was great and the hotel does have a lift, which was great as well.

Quiet, Clean, Modern, Friendly, very friendly, great welcome, warm, good breakfast until 11am !!

check out at midday !!! I always hestitate to say "Excellant value for money" because that might mean that you get what you pay for but really here you get much more than you pay for

We went for a walk in the forest at the back (3 minutes drive) in the morning before breakfast, loads of trails for jogging and MTB

Need a car !! but then so do you for the other main hotel in St Amand (Palisino ??)

Unless you like very basic food, ignore the advice to go to the Champs Elysée restaurant !! I wonder if it is a family / friend relationship with the lady at the reception. Unfortuneatly there isn't any really good food places in St Amand except the other hotel 500m from Akena - the Palisino. Here you will find restaurants from all the tastes of the world.

Ah yes, one thing. The "fastbooking" site did not make it clear that breakfast is NOT included in the price. but it was only 7 euros for a buffet.

If you are looking for a decent place to stay and you don't need walking access to the town this place is great. If you are without a car then consider staying closer to town center. The hotel manager was awesome and very helpful. The hotel was perfectly nice.

This is a brand new hotel (I think) on the edges of a shopping centre. We only paid 40 euro for a room, so we did not have huge expectations and we were very pleasantly surprised.
The room was relatively small but it was decorated in a contemporary and very tasteful manner. Unlike most budget hotels, the fittings, furniture, TV, etc were good quality. I have stayed in 4 star hotels that were worse. Everything was spotlessly clean.
Staff were very helpful and polite. Because we were travelling with a 6 months old baby, they gave us a beautiful portable cot to use in our room.
We struggled a little to find the hotel (too new for our sat nav, I think) but that aside, a great experience. We would certainly go back again and we will try other Akena hotels next time we are in France.

We stayed here while my daughter attended a summer ballet course. We were bowled over by the friendliness we encountered at a budget hotel. When a taxi was not available when we were going to the station, the manageress drove us herself.
Delicious breakfasts, nothing too much trouble.
Thank you, Hotel Akena!
