This was my first time in Annecy, and I loved it! The city is very picturesque and, by European standards, not at all crowded. The hotel is very well located in the old town area and, as the name indicates, right next to the Palais de l'Isle. I arrived by taxi from the railway station, and the taxi driver had no difficulty getting to the front door of the hotel; similarly, when I left I booked a taxi the night before, as advised by the hotel receptionist, and it was waiting right outside the front door.
The hotel seems to be spread across two or three old buildings, which can make the walk from the lift to your room a slightly meandering experience, particularly as the lights in the hallways are movement-actuated, but I found it very easy to negotiate, and it became second nature very quickly. The staff were pleasant and helpful.
My room was big and very comfortable and, with windows on two sides, had great views of the canal and the Palaias de l'Isle. The bathroom was small but worked well. A good continental breakfast was included in the room rate.
I spent three nights there, and would have been very happy to stay longer. Very good value.
