“Hotel du Nord”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 31, 2012

I rented the family room for 2 days. It was plenty roomy and clean. We did not eat breakfast there so cannot comment on that. Read some other reviews about the shower curtain sticking to you when you take a shower. Whoever installed the curtain rod did not think to well about it. But I alway travel with about 10ft of string (about shoe lace thickness) so was able to tie the curtain in such a way as to give me plenty of room. NEVER travel without some string. The bathroom was clean and big enough for us (2 adults and 2 kids). There is a hair dryer unit and it has a 2 prong 110v outlet. We wanted some hot water to make tea at night and the front desk was very nice to give us an electric kettle. The front desk staff was very nice and spoke english for us. The public parking lot is around the corner but you can pull onto the sidewalk in front of the hotel to unload your things. When leaving, the hotel will give you a card so that you dont have to pay for overnight parking, only daytime. Saved me about 17 euros. The hotel is only a minute from where you want to be walking around. All in all a good 2 star hotel.

It's easy to get to this hotel from the train station.Once there, you'll find an exceptionally friendly staff who are comfortable speaking English. The elevator right next to the reception desk comes in handy too.

The rooms and hallways are bright and appealing. The optional breakfast includes cereal, yogurt, cheese, meat etc., as well as the usual coffee, juice, and bread and croissant.

it's an easy walk from the hotel to Annecy's lovely old town. There's a variety of stores nearby too.

I was pleasantly surprised by this hotel and recommend it as a good value, especially for train travelers, in the resort town of Annecy.

Room Tip: If kyou're tall, avoid the fourth floor. The roof slopes down a bit and reduces headroom!

We stayed at Hotel du Nord in Annecy during our recent trip to France. It is a decent and clean hotel conveniently located within minutes from the pedestrian area and town centre. It's right on the street so there is no parking at the hotel but you get to park in a very close-by underground parking and your get a discount ticket from the hotel that will deduct from the overall parking charge. There is a tiny elevator ( for one person and suitcase) or you can take the stairs to the upper floors. Room was clean and neat, has a closet, flat screen tv, good size well equiped bathroom with tub and shower. Not a lot of room around the beds, we had the familty room with 4 beds and we had to find a suitable arrangement for our 4 suitcases so we can move freely through the room. They offer breakfast, we did not take it, we preferred to walk through the picturesque town and have croissants and crepes to savour the local flavour.

The Hotel du Nord is in a great location. It's a few steps from a pedestrian street that winds it way around to the old town. The lake is also nearby, which was teeming with sailboats, paddle boats and chartered tour boats.

We stayed here on a Sunday night in June, which worked out great parking-wise. We were able to park on the street overnight without having to pay anything, though by we had to move our car early the next morning. Fortunately, the parking garage was a couple of small blocks away and was very affordable.

The staff was very friendly but the woman on duty the night we arrived didn't speak English very well. My French was even worse, but we found a way to communicate. Later on, she recommended and helped us get a reservation at a fantastic restaurant, Chez Mamie Lise. They also gladly held our bags after we checked out so we could go search for delicious crepes (try Cafe La Sapiniére in old town!).

The room was clean, but the tiny. The bed, while spacious for two, took up about 80% of the room. The bathroom was also small, but hot water was available (just watch out for shower curtain attacks!). We did use some of our room time to check email and review sites, but the Internet was nearly unusable. Although I guess I can't complain too much since it was free.

Overall, it was good for us for a night and we were happy with the service, but I think we would probably try somewhere else if we came back to Annecy due to the room space and wifi issues.

We stayed here for one night in May. It has central location near train station, not far from old town. Actually it has huge pros if you are arrive by train and cons if you arrive by car. Note, that Garmin GPS gets the location, but was somehow confused by one way streets. Eventually we decided to walk to the hotel :-) Of course, parking is a problem, however there is a nearby garage for a fee. Its located on a quite busy one way street (the other way is only allowed for buses and taxis), though you cannot hear any noise while in the room.

Everything in hotel is tiny. From check-in area to the room, even the staircase is narrow. Room is small (32), however big enough to stay one or two nights. It was reasonably clean, with TV and not so large bathroom. But i didn't have any problem with the size of shower and had a good sleep. Free wireless internet was available, but through "outside" provider - sorry, but this is pain in the *** and didn't work well. But the point of Annecy is not staying in a room, but visiting the beautiful city.

Breakfast was a surprise. A buffet breakfast with plenty of choice. Worth a price. Actually hotel has a good value for money, though it doesn't stand out in any way.

I stayed here in January 2012 for a weekend. The hotel has a good location, close to the train station and close to the old city centre. It's a small hotel and so, everything is small: the reception, the lift, the bedroom, the bathroom, the shower (actually the shower was really small, difficult to use it properly). But it has everything you need for a short stay. The staff was friendly and helpful (except the woman who serves the breakfast). The bedroom, although it was small, it was comfortable, with a double bed, closet, tv with international channels, a small balcony, heater, and it was clean and tidy. The only meal offered is breakfast, which you can order to your room or you can have it in a small room in the first floor: it's a very basic buffet with fresh baked croissants, coffee, cheese, jams, yogurt, etc but it's from good quality. I felt good in this hotel and I wasn't disappointed for the money I paid

Room Tip: I liked the one I had in the second floor facing the street

This hotel was is in a very handy location. The parking is a bit of a pain as you have to pick up a voucher at the hotel and then drive a few. Locks to an underground car park.
The bed was due to be replaced but the room was Cowan with a new bathroom. All on all not too bad for the money.
