Reviewed August 31, 2010

We spent four nights here--the rooms were lovely, the hotel is charming and located directly across from the train station. Everything in town is within walking distance and the tourist bureau has good information. Beautiful old, old city--good shopping, wonderful french breads, wines, regional foods, markets--bring good walking shoes and an umbrella--the weather is more coastal than you would think . . .

The Hotel is very conveniently situated near the station but not noisey. All the places of interest in Angers are well within walking distance from the Hotel. All the Hotel staff were very friendly and helpful and English speaking. Eating at the Bistro attached to the Hotel was ideal and reasonably priced but limited menu.

Large hotel within walking distance of the station, although we drove. Car park is in the next street on the first floor, quite tricky wouldn't recommend if you are a nervous driver. We only stayed one night, had a very comfortable upgraded room. Towels beautiful and soft, sheets very clean. Found the staff extremely helpful, they offered us a voucher for a glass of wine in the restaurant attached to the hotel but we decided to go for a walk to explore and find a restaurant of our own choice. Breakfast in hotel was very good and fresh, usual on offer cheese, eggs, ham, bread, crossiants, cereals & yoghurt. Would definitely stay in hotel again as very convenient location.

I booked two nights at this hotel through my Thank You Reward points with American Express. This was the only hotel out of four in Europe that I booked that wouldn't allow for two beds. Since it was my grown daughter and myself, we needed two beds. When we arrived they did have such a room, but it cost $15 a day extra. Wasn't crazy about that.
Breakfast wasn't included in our free nights, and from the high cost of it, can't imagine anyone paying for it. We ate other places.
For travelers coming on the train, you can't get a better location. You literally walk across the street to the hotel from the station.
I was only there because my daughter is a study abroad student in this city and it was her spring break.
The room was clean enough. Huge bathroom.
Not a lot to do in the city, but the downtown area is very quaint.

  • Liked — location
  • Disliked — expensive breakfast, charged for extra bed.

$121 per night with taxes. I remember not being too impressed with this hotel. We had stayed in some nicer places the prior nights so it was a little bit of a let down. It was our first real experience with how small french rooms could be. It was easy to find with our rental car and there was parking at the railroad station across the street since the hotel's lot was full. Everything we wanted to see in the city was within walking distance including the great Chateau which was the most amazing medieval of the places we saw on this trip. It is a MUST for anyone coming to this city for the first time.

  • Liked — good location
  • Disliked — standard small room.
