“Perfect affordable Reims accommodation”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 17, 2009

We stayed here for 3 nights in early May. The cost per night was 109 euro. Our room was cozy, clean, and perfectly fresh. We did not find it tired, although the bathroom was somewhat old fashioned although water pressure and hot water worked well. The room was somewhat small with our large American suitcases but very charming and absolutely quiet. It is perfectly located with a public parking garage directly underneath the hotel. The hotel gives a discount for parking there and we found it very convenient. It is also located just across the park from the train station so this location would also work well for train travelers.

If I have to nit-pik, I would give demerits for the lack of Kleenex provided. They do give you a few tissues in a small packet, but this was quickly used and we had to switch over to the toilet paper which I must say was not very nice and didnt smell great.

We had early morning tours so we did not eat breakfast at the hotel. The desk staff was very very nice and accommodating.

All in all, the plusses far outweight the few nitpicky negatives and we will definitely stay here again. When we consider how much time we spend in the room you cannot beat the value provided at this cozy little place.

I stayed in this hotel during some perfect weather in June 2008. We travelled to Reims from Paris by TGV and found that the hotel was only a very short walk from the station. Dragging a suitcase to the hotel presented no problem. The reception was very friendly and all staff spoke good English. The hotel is situated diagonally opposite a leafy park and is at the beginning of a long pedestrian mall which is filled with bars, bistros, cafes and so on. It is within easy walking distance to the wonderful cathedral.
My room was tired and dated but clean and comfortable. The bathroom needed updating but was functioning perfectly. Breakfast was good and the hotel had a quiet ambience. My room was at the station end of the hotel and was very quiet.
I would stay there again.

  • Liked — The location, quietness and friendly staff
  • Disliked — Tired, dated rooms.

Stayed here last year and when I found myself travelling to Reims again I booked in once more. The lobby is quite impressive when you walk in. Staff are very friendly and helpful. The room we had was overlooking Place D'Erlon but we didn't have any trouble with noise. The room was average size. Bathroom small with just a shower. The room could do with a bit of updating but it was clean and comfortable. The location is perfect. Within walking distance of nearly everything and easy to find from the motorway with an underground car park right outside. If you are looking to stay in a good location for a very reasonable price you should consider this place.

The rooms are a bit shabby; the bathrooms are quite tired (with plumbing and wiring on the inside of the walls and bath/showers that are downright dangerous); and the breakfast is nothing to write home about.

However, the location is wonderful -- about four blocks to the Cathedral; on major bus routes (we went out to Saint Remi for a Euro each way); and near several good restaurants.

Unlike other reviewers, we were not taken by Brasserie Flo -- but that might have been because it was a busy Saturday night; we did, however, love the Grand Cafe, which specializes in mussels and is right across the street from the hotel.

Others in our party tried the Three Brewers and found it grossly overpriced and not particularly good.

All in all, the Grand Hotel Continental is far from grand; however, it is solid and is well located for exploring Reims.

  • Liked — Location; free internet 3-5 PM if you have your own wi-fi computer
  • Disliked — the bath/shower that had very slippery bottom (we put down a towel for traction!)

A small room overlooking what turned out to be a very noisy kitchen of the restaurant next door. Great if you want to listen to the chef shouting to his staff or the clashing of dishes at 2 o'clock in the morning....And once that had finished we enjoyed the noise of the air conditioning units.

Good location but not worth 75 Euros!

Good location: underground car park right outside, and dozens of cafes and bars nearby. Fairly cheap. However it is a bit shabby, and slightly noisy. But as a stopover it's fine - go and have a meal and a few drinks, and get some sleep. No problem.

I arrived at the hotel, used as a driving break on a coach trip en route from UK to Strasburg, and the weather was sunny and balmy on this mid-November day. The location is very central, in fact in the pedestrianised area (but look out for bikes).
The receptionists were very helpful and spoke good English, which was a great help to me as I hadn't used French since I was at school quite a few years ago.
The twin room was of a decent size and shower room was tidy and warm Next - Off to see the sites. The Cathedral is a must and easy to find on foot. Unfortunately it was growing dusk by the time we got there, so the lovely stained glass windows were not as I had remembered.
There were lots of bars and eating places to stop at on the way back to the hotel.
Was serious warning though; the room was confortable, but the noise from the next door restaurant's kitchen staff seemed to go on for hours, keeping us awake for ages! The second warning, especially for anybody taking a romantic sojourn - Walls have ears (or so the saying goes). We could hear conversations from rooms on both sides of us and from above!!!
The included breakfast buffet was very good though and set us up for the onward journey.
In short, super facilities, lovery helpful staff, marvellous central position, which I enjoyed ....... but .......

  • Liked — Friendliness & helpfulness of front desk staff
  • Disliked — Noise at night (not from hotel)
  • Tips/Secrets — Take time out to explore the lacality
