Well, perhaps you and I wouldn't want to be the favourite of King Stanislas in those times, but hey, the Hotel the Guise - where this favourite lived - is a wonderful place to stay: in the oldest part of Nancy, a charming and beautiful city in the Alsace region. Don't go for too cheap though or you'll end up in one of the smaller and not jet updated rooms, a huge contrast with the grand staircase and the overall beautiful city palace this hotel is. Very friendly staff, a gorgeous breakfast and a noiseless room await you there. Do note the parking spaces in the streets around the hotel are for 2 hrs. parking max. so find a parking nearby: say, near the Place Stanislas, a five minutes walk from the hotel and yes, the most beautiful square in Western Europe. A very fine place to enjoy a couple of days in this rather unknown but beautiful French city.
