“Great value, service & location”
Reviewed August 7, 2013

Spent 2 nights at this hotel and happy to recommend as a tourist hotel in the region. Staff ( husband and wife ) very helpful - allowing guests to print boarding pass, recommend restaurants and give directions to attractions, etc. very good value for money at euro 45 per night and a decent petit dejeuner at 6 euro. Shower power excellent, plenty of shower gel, hot water and clean towels daily. Rooms pleasantly and cheerfully decorated and beds comfy, although a little squeaky, Air conditioning would have been lovely as on fourth floor and both nights felt very hot to this Scottish girl, but for the price I expect that was a big ask.

I have now stayed in this hotel several times and find it the best low budget hotel in the region
There are no frills attached but the rooms are clean and comfortable and the shower works perfectly . It is across the road from the train station and there is ample parking It is also a short stroll up into the center of Angouleme town If this is all you are looking for in a hotel this place is fine !

On the way back home from Spain, I stayed in a twin room.
The reception was kind of helpful, but clearly not guest-oriented. He would explain everything patiently, but when we were asking him about the shower that could not be attached to the wall, he simply said it must be broken and that he couldn't do anything about it.
The elevator was a little bit dogy, the room was ok, but very very hot. Even with the windows wide open (btw very noisy).
the bathroom was clean, but didn't look it, because of the appearance of the tiles.
breakfast was good.

We booked the hotel for an overnight stop between train journeys, so its location close to the station was ideal.
The hotel is small and fairly basic, but it's clean and perfectly comfortable. The double room was well equipped and the en-suite bathroom was small but functional. Certainly it was excellent value for what was a pretty cheap room.
The hotel is run by a very helpful and friendly couple who went out of their way to make our stay a pleasant one.
The one, slight, disadvantage of the location is that it was fairly noisy at night if, like us, you like to sleep with the windows open!
Breakfast was an extra 7 euros, but was good and plentiful,
The centre of Angouleme itself is a five minute stroll away and is a very pretty city with plenty of things to see and places to eat.

We arrived in Angouleme by TGV direct from CDG after flying in from Australia and took a room in this hotel which is directly across the road from the station.

It was a good choice after a long international flight.

We booked for a week and could not have asked for better lodgings, from the sunny rooms, comfy beds, high pressure shower with oodles oof hot water and very good wifi.

We normally don't take breakfast in hotels but we made an exception here because of the spread that went beyond the usual baguette and coffee to include cornflakes fresh fruit, yogurt etc.

The town centre is a 5 minute stroll up fairly steep streets but the walk back downhill after eating in one of the dozens of restaurants all clustered in one block, is very easy
The owners of d'Orleans are a very friendly couple who held our room whilst we overnighted in nearby Saintes and they even sat down with us and shared a bottle of their cognac.

Well, just got back from a 3 night stay in Angouleme. We stayed here and after reading some of the reviews on here, some of my friends were aprehensive.

(I wasn't worried, and they shouldn't have been! Some reviews on here can be a bit dramatic and/or expect too much vs. price per night!)

We wanted a cheap clean room near the centre...... and that is exactly what we got.

Friendly staff, spacious room, and a central location. Perfect for ~20 Euro a night.

Opposite the train station, it's about a 5-10min walk to the centre. There is street parking outside.

I've scored this place 'Average', but average is what we were after! Value for money was the name of the game.
