Reviewed August 24, 2013

Very easy to access via the Angers train station as just across the road, no stairs required either in the train station or hotel. The staff were very helpful, there are maps of Angers at the desk also wifi as well as a laptop and printer in the reception area. A restaurant is attached to the hotel or if you prefer, room service. The breakfast was fantastic, mostly organic and locally sourced produce. This hotel is eco friendly. Angers is a lovely town, very walkable. The Doomsday Tapestry at the chateau in the centre of town is well worth a visit.

Sometimes I think I must have stayed in a different hotel from the one I think I'm reviewing, when I read some reviews. We just spent three wonderful days in charming Angers and if I ever return, as I would love to, I wouldn't stay anywhere else. By the way not everyone who comes to this district has a car. We do all our travelling in Europe by train as do many others, so it's always good to find a nice hotel near the station. I can only endorse the positive comments of other travellers. The service is top notch, the room beautifully furnished, excellent breakfast. Bring your own soap and shampoo if you don't like the idea of a liquid dispenser, as there are no regular toiletries in keeping with the eco 'green' label of the hotel.

I enjoyed my stay at this hotel. Friendly staff, good location in the center of Angers across the street from the train station and good access to restaurants and bars, including a good pub around the corner. Internet is not strong, but the rooms were very reasonable.

This hotel is idealy located in the Place du Gare, lovely surroundings and is itself a very impressive building.I had a good size twin room at the front, good view of the fountain, with french doors opening onto a little balcony . Room very clean and comfortable , complete with towelling robe. Take your own kettle and tea/ coffee, as the hotel is just starting to provide these in some of the rooms.My package included breakfast, which was very good, plus a set menu evening meal( I was in a group)The food was of excellent quality, the staff very efficient and anxious to please. If the menu was not to anyones, taste they offered an alternative.The Chateau is just 10 mins walk away, lovely walkable town, very good for coach drivers too. Free secure coach park with vehicle washing facilities, Angers want visitors to their lovely town and to enjoy their cultural assets.The weather was warm and sunny too!

Room Tip: Ask for a front facing room, views over the delightful fountain roundabout, the fountain is switched...

Good location in lovely Angers. Room small,very clean but rather old fashioned. Enormous bathroom. Food in restaurant unremarkable and inconsistent portions with all in party. Pleasant, helpful staff. Not four star as adverts would have you believe more like three.

Room Tip: 3Hotel does not have pool or fitness centre,. Couldn,t change rating!

A warm welcome, a spotless room (style shabby chic), and, though I encountered a connectivity proble, there was laptop by reception. Splendid range at breakfast.
The hotel is noted for being "green" (in French "bio") and it scored highly in this respect, too.
Would I return? Definitely!

The hotel is easy to find from train station St. Laud, which is important if you are new in town and arriving by train late in the evening. There is always someone at the desk in the lobby, so it's easy to get any information and service you need.

I strongly support environment-friendly approach of the hotel, however, balcony shades need fresh paint and some details in the room were too historic.
