Like others have said, very central and easy for all transportation. Many busses and trams come by regularly. Tram B comes every 5-10 minutes and takes you to the train station, there is a grocery store across the street (all rooms have kitchens), movie theatre around the corner, bakery and wine shop close by, a great cheese shop right on the same street etc. This is in the center of town but its a 5 min walk to the "hyper center" which has many restaurants and bars and shops. Grenoble is a small city so its very walkable in general.
>>>>> Kitchen / Food
I stayed here for a month in February and 2 weeks in December. Let me tell you it was *great* to have my own kitchen. I can't eat restaurant food for every meal!! Plus the restaurants in France are only open certain hours so it was nice to have that flexibility. The kitchens are pretty basic but regardless they were good to have. Continental breakfast provided (I think it comes with most rooms??). Nice and easy - croissants, yogurt, cereal, juice, coffee, fruit, and sometimes extras. No proper restaurant though you will have to go elsewhere for other meals.
These are apartment hotels so they usually do a light daily cleaning but not always. And they often don't replace soaps and such but I prefer to have my own brands anyways. They are always very good about replacing the towels and bathrobe tho. Once per week they do a full clean.
They have laundry facilities but all the instructions are in French so be careful... For me one load per week was included but if you do more tokens for a wash and a dry are like 10 euros total. Steep.
The apartments are small and cramped but they give you a nice big closet to put your gear. Some rooms are more spacious than others. The rooms in the South corner are all quite spacious, but the ones in the North corner have their own balcony which is nice you can see the Bastille.
In the winter you have to keep the bathroom and main heater on during the day to keep the apartment warm at night. Its wasteful but its the only thing that worked for me! Sooo cold in GRE in winter!!!
Only english channels are CNN and BBC. Fine by me but got sick of them after a month... Load up your laptop with shows before you come! No wifi in the room bring a longer cord than what they provide if you don't want to sit at the desk all the time. There is wifi in the lobby though.
The staff all speaks English so that was great! Most were really great only had some attitude from one but it wasn't a big deal. They are really friendly.
