I dont think recent reviews do justice to this WONDERFUL, GREAT VALUE, BOUTIQUE HOTEL !! We LOVED IT !!!
My husband and I recently spent 1 night at this GREAT hotel as part of a 2 week trip through France for our 10 Year Wedding Anniversary. We were after someting very central (as we wanted to walk everywhere) , good value for money, and something with a sense of character/a little different (not the stock standard 3 star hotel) - and the College Hotel definately met all criteria - WE LOVED IT !!
We were very impressed by the funky vibe at this boutique hotel - with its quirky but cute öld school" theme (very appropriate since it is actually a converted old school). Contrasting to the heritiage old world school themed common areas -we were really impressed with the modern/minimalist all white rooms. Our room was HUGE, with a lovely terrace with great views over the old town, and up the hill to the Cathedral.
We loved the huge corner bath in the bathroom, huge french doors in the bedroom and bathroom, flatscreen TV , fridge with FREE Water/Coke/OJ on each floor , FREE internet, GREAT FRIENDLY SERVICE by front desk - we could go on and on.....
The hotel was also environmentally conscious - with motion sensored lighting throughout the building.
The continental breakfast was 12 Euros each - and is definately worth doing at least once during your stay - if only to complete the experience of dining in an old school dining hall/room - with tea served from cute individual thermos, OJ served in very cute little bottles/beakers.
The hotel was also able to recommend some great restaurants for lunch and dinner,
Overall - this was GREAT VALUE for such a charming/funky conversion of an old school into a great and very central BOUTIQUE HOTEL.
