“Wonderful stay”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 18, 2013

What a wonderful place!! Herve and Xavier are fantastic hosts. Le Soleil offered great facilities and it is brilliantly situated for a short walk into the main Grand Place where there are numerous restaurants, bars etc.
The room and bathroom (en-suite) were well appointed and immaculately clean. The bed was very comfortable and the breakfast was first class. There is ample free parking nearby and the area although very close to all amenities was extremely quiet. We can strongly recommend Le Soleil to anybody who wants a peaceful and comfortable place to stay.

My wife and I stayed at Le Soleil in mid - November 2013, and found it a very comfortable B&B indeed. Herve and Xavier were most hospitable and made sure that everything was in order, and provided us with a great breakfast every morning. He was able to practise his English and we were able to practise our French. Our room was very comfortable - well furnished, decorated and maintained. We were given lots of information about Arras including a number of restaurant suggestions. We tried them all and were not disappointed with any.

Room Tip: There is only one room for guests.

My husband and I just returned from France last night. We had the pleasure of staying two nights at the Le Soleil du Lion Bed and Breakfast in Arras. The B&B owner was very helpful, providing information about the town and vicinity. Overall, it was just like staying at home - friendly, warm and a great breakfast.

The B&B is located very close to the Musée des Beaux-Arts and the Abbey of St.Vaast in the town centre. The two large squares in Arras, the Grande Place and the Place des Héros, with lots of great restaurants, are located within walking distance (< 10 minutes). There was lots to see and we could have stayed longer.

A truly excellent place, and two of the friendliest hosts you could hope to find. We were encouraged to treat the house as our own and that's what we did, coming and going as we pleased.
The accommodation is clean and spacious, and there is unrestricted parking a short distance from the front door. It's in a lovely quiet street but just a short walk from central Arras.
And the breakfasts were excellent too. Top place!

This is a lovely 18th century house lovingly restored by Herve and Xavier. It's like staying old friends from the minute you arrive. Tea, a hot bath and congratulations after a long bike ride were all much appreciated!

Just wish we could have stayed longer! Hervé and Xavier are the perfect hosts! They welcomed us into their home, providing us with a beautiful room, lovely breakfast and endless amounts of local information! We hope to return to explore Arras further. Merci beaucoup!

Herve & Xavier are charming hosts, sharing their stunning house, a renovated 18th Century French house in the old part of Amiens. They have an artistic flair and there is something of interest and beaty everywhere you look, even your own Van Gogh chair in the bathroom! There is a gorgeous small courtyard too. They are friendly and helpful and make the stay extra special. Extremely clean and comfortable you won't be disappointed.

Room Tip: There is only one room, but it is a beauty!
