Vatel Hotel & Spa
Ranked #10 of 35 Hotels in Nimes
Reviewed February 16, 2014

The exterior is like arriving in immediately post war East Germany. There is no ambience as you enter the hotel and it doesn't get better. There is a problem with everything ..accessing wifi which keeps quitting, television controls that don't work, phone system that is complex.
The brasserie is so bright you need sunglasses, zero ambience. The decor is plastic and cheap.
Avoid it if you can!!

This hotel and restaurant are on a business school campus. Students serve you. If you have patience, you will eat an excellent meal. The rooms were clean, spacious, and comfortable. Staff was friendly and did their best to ensure you were satisfied.

I was travelling with 2 friends and we decided to stay at vatel nines we had heard a lot rom other ppl for its quality of food and service and great rooms
We arrived to the hotel the check in went smooth and quick they guided us to our rooms and showed us around the property they have like 44 rooms but they all were class apart. Food was amazing straight from the breakfast till dinner amazing and the BBQ in the afternoon lunch was truly heavenly over all it was an experience worth the time and money


Ppl who go to nines should go to this property definitely

After staying in a rather unpleasant hotel in Nice, my wife and I were looking for something a little more upscale. We were pleasantly surprised when we found this little gem. The room was very well appointed for the price. The bed was very comfortable, and the staff were very friendly.

The hotel itself is newly rennovated.
The rooms are modern and clean.

The top floor restaurant is excellent.
The concept of this hotel being a school for students studying hotel management is pleasant.

However, it is far away from the city center. Right next to the hotel are some welfare buildings and student homes. Take a quick guess...- Part, alcohol, drunken people ALL NIGHT LONG.

Room Tip: ask for a room facing thr entrance side to avoid noise

A great small hotel, just 44 rooms, and an "école hotelliére" at the same time.

The rooms are big and in grat condition, ( a big overhaul 2 years ago, I was told), and the staff--students willing to work and satisfy the customers.

It's a bit of the city centre, in front of the Hospital--Medicine School of Nimes, wich can be practical, and a Funeral Home in the backyard, very practical too!

A little hard to find, but well worth it if you want a full size room and don't need to stay in the city. The lunch in the main floor restaurant was delicious and at an affordable price. The staff was extremely friendly and attentive. Yes, this is a "school", but the attitude of the employees was 5 star. Would definitely would stay there again when back in Nimes.

Room Tip: stay higher up and use the outside shade to shut out light and noise.
