Auxerre was our last stop before heading into Paris. We wanted a hotel that was easy to drive to and close to the main sights of the town. Our rental car's GPS found the hotel easily, which was good because I think relying entirely on a paper map would have been difficult. We were able to park for free across the street, and the road construction mentioned by others was still on-going in late October 2013.
The Marine Quarter of Auxerre begins just a block or two from the hotel, and it was an interesting area to walk through to reach the historical sights farther up the hill.
Our room was on the top floor, and we had to be careful we didn't hit our head on a beam supporting the mansard roof. We had nice views of the river. The décor and furnishings of our room were very average and rather plain. The bathroom appeared to be recently renovated.
We were not advised that the hotel's restaurant would be closed during our visit. It probably didn't matter, but it would have been nice to know in advance. The breakfast was just average but certainly adequate. The reception staff was friendly and helpful.
