Holiday Inn Express Arras
Ranked #3 of 14 Hotels in Arras
Reviewed November 8, 2013

Even on a wet fairly cold November day, this hotel was fine. The Underground Parking (about 11 euros a night) is hard to find the first time. There is an entrance to the car park on the Boulevard Carnot close to the hotel. It is an easy walk from the hotel to the main squares. There are good restaurants not far from from the hotel. Plenty of free coffee and tea in the rooms. The breakfast is acceptable - the cereals were Kellogs. There is variety of bread, non-butter croissants, some breakfast cheese and ham, and boiled eggs. We had no problem with outside noise. The room heating and aircon worked. The shower had plenty of hot water. The only soap provided is liquid all-purpose squeeze out.

Room Tip: Probably choose a room away from the station, as we did.

This is a standard utilitarian holiday Inn. It is next to the train station, near the main places.
The staff is very friendly and helpful.
The rooms are standardized, very clean, practical.
Breakfast is included and very good - hard boiled eggs, press your own orange juice, tarte au sucre (a local specialty).

We had a very good experience in Holiday Inn Express end October 2013. This is a good value for money hotel in an excellent location with underground parking available at an additional cost and easily organised.
The rooms are spotless and generous, with good shower rooms, the service everywhere was first class and we would recommend it highly and happily stay there again.
There are several good restaurants within easy reach and this location is convenient for the train station, if required, and easy exit to the south of the city. We were very disappointed in the Grande Place in Arras and very happy not to be in the centre of town and what has become a crumbling and rather neglected environment.

This central hotel is located near the station and central areas of town. From the back door, one can walk across the pedestrian square to restaurants and major attractions. Underground parking with access to the hotel is available (for a fee). We drove up to the main entrance and asked the friendly receptionist for a map showing how to access the parking garage. Free street parking can be had after business hours, but as it was pouring we chose the car park.
The room had the usual amenities, including tea/coffee-mkaing facilities. A excellent breakfast with attentive staff was served. It was a pleasant overnight stay on the way to Vimy Ridge.

My family stayed here last summer for a few days. Great service and friendly staff. Convenient car parking and good location about 5 minutes walk from the city centre.

Would recommend anyone looking for a nice hotel staying with young family.

We stayed for 2 nights whilst exploring the Somme battlefields. Whilst "interesting" to find that was probably more down to me not updating my SatNav before we left. There is underground parking at an additional cost (Euro 10.50 per day) - Top Tip, try & remember where you've parked!!!
We had a family room which was perfect for our needs. Breakfast is typically French, the only hot food available were self boiled eggs, a really funky boiler! The location is pretty central, 5 minutes walk to the main square in Arras.

Needed a few days away and fancied a city break in france. Arras is lovely. It was a great place for a short break and the holiday inn was perfect. We took a family room and it was clean and tidy. Two doubles for the four of us. A short walk to the main square and lots of excellent places to eat. Kids were 6 and 4 and enjoyed themselves. Loved the pool table and we enjoyed the bar as seemed to have it to ourselves at times. Continental breakfast was great. Pain au chocolat, fresh baguettes, cheese. delicious. Staff were helpful and friendly.
