The Citadines is a no frill pay by the night residence. Note that I didn't say hotel and that's because when I checked in, the woman at the front desk made that clear to me. they are a residence, not a hotel.
In other words: pay for your stay in advance, no hotel like amenities such as help finding a restaurant or clean linens included in the price of the stay. Want clean towels? That'll be 8 euros and isn't offered daily, although laundry facilities are so one could clean one's linens oneself.
The good part is that the suite was clean (think 80s decor) and had a little kitchen area with a fridge and stove. On-site parking is also available as is breakfast in a little cafeteria.
Note that the Citadines does not have air conditioning. They offer an "air cooling system" which is otherwise normally called by the rest of the world: "a fan." Seriously, they told us they had an air cooling system. No joke. Remember that in the summer, Grenoble can become one of the hottest cities in France...
