“Great place, close to the water”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 5, 2012

We stayed in this hotel as part of a group tour. The elevator is small, but adequate for its purposes. The room was clean and a good size for 2 beds. The bathroom was also clean. Breakfast in the morning was great, with plenty of fresh pastries. Hotel staff was friendly and helpful.

I would definitely stay here again if I was staying in Boulogne-sur-Mer.

This hotel was very disapointing, because of the quality and the moderness. this hotel was anient and old fashioned which puts me off. with my friends there were 44 of us and the people behind the desk said there is plenty of room in the hole hotel, the rooms, my friends and i had to share double beds which wasnt very comfortable. and when we came downstairs in the morning there weren't enough tables downstairs when it clearly shows plenty of room on the photos above, there were only about 8 tables for 2. the photo defently lie, its grim, gruby and smelly along with being noisey. there should not cost this much as its not worth it. it should only cost about £4 a night!

Room Tip: dont waste your money, dont go!

was staying here for 3 nights and rooms were okay and the tvs were a good size but some parts of the hotel were disapointing. the bathroom had some mould which was all black and looked disgusting but at least the shower worked, the plumbing was noisy. and you could hear lots of noises due to the hotel bieng on a main road. the pillows for the bed were far to small (would recomond you bring your own) its a good location in the middle of boulogne but it looks old from the outside. you do on the other hand get a decent breakfast of crossiants and baguettes.

Room Tip: higher rooms have less noiesy wc

I was booked into this hotel by some friends as part of a group and I wouldn't have chosen it myself having read the reviews below. It is a bit shabby and old, particularly from the outside, but my room seemed to have been redecorated recently and was very clean. The bathroom was a bit grim, having no natural light and it was equipped with an ancient half-bath with a shower over it. It had such high sides that I found it quite awkward to get in and out of, especially once it was wet and slippery and I'm six foot tall. I had a room at the back which was quiet, except for the seagulls which as I visited in June, started their dawn chorus at 4 A.M. One of my colleagues complained that her room was very noisy with constant noise from the plumbing every time someone flushed a toilet. The staff were helpful, but reception is not manned for 24 hours. Breakfast was good. I paid 61 Euros, bed and breakfast. I normally stay in better quality hotels, so I wouldn't go back, but it would be an option if you are on a budget. The hotel is well situated for the port area, but if you want to visit the old town, it's a 15 minute walk up quite a steep hill.

In a town where it isn't all that easy to find comfortable, quiet hotels with a little dab of charm to distinguish from the run of the mill, drab, overprices dormitories, the Faidherbe is definitely the place to choose. Well located, on a main road that is surprisingly quiet at night, the Faidherbe is a friendly, family-run place with individually decorated rooms (larger than the renovated closets you get in most places). The breakfast tables are arranged in a cosy entrance alcove that enables you to take stock of the day to come while sipping your coffee and enjoying a copious buffet. Just across the road from one of the most dependable brasseries in town. As I've had to sample most hotels in Boulogne for professional purposes over the past few years I definitely recommend the Faidherbe in its category.

Had a short break in Boulogne. This was the only place with rooms left. The location is good - pretty central so an easy walk to the shops or the harbour area. Parking easy on the roads but you do have to keep feeding the meter.
Staff I saw were efficient but not particularly welcoming.
Perhaps I'm not used to 2 star places or maybe my expectation was too high given the price wasn't cheap by UK standards (because the £ is so low against the Euro at the moment) at £100 a night but the room was not great with badly stained sanitary ware, old carpets, tired furnishings. Beds were comfy and everything was very clean though.
Breakfast is in a cramped area, not great for families with young children so would recommend using one of the nearby cafes instead (there are lots).
The main reason for a poor review though was the NOISE. The room overlooked the road at the front and although it was warm I had to keep the windows shut all night against the grinding traffic, tooting horns and a surprising number of yelling drunks (thought the UK had these problems not France!). WHY do people toot their horns in the middle of the night? Nobody slept well. The windows just didn't keep out the noise.
Boulogne was worth the visit but I didn't like this hotel.

This hotel was quite old, pretty basic, room was not ready upon stated check in time and had to wait around for an hour. On the plus side the free wi fi was good and it was quiet and clean. The staff were friendly but you need to speak French!
