I should start by saying that this once was an incredibly grand hotel in Amiens, one that would take you back in time. However, it really could do with a good makeover, the bedrooms were on the small side and rather tired.

Unfortunately the bathroom was slightly problematic - the shower head had to be propped in place and the shower screen/curtain was non-existent which resulted in a rather wet bathroom - coupled with a lack of bathroom window and only an extractor fan this was not a nice room to be in!

The bed could only be accessed from one side and the end of the bed and was quite comfortable (if you get what I mean!). The hotel walls are also on the thin side and the guest who returned at 3am could quite clearly be heard saying Good Night to his friends and then accessing his room!

The hotel is located on a complicated one way system and the car park is a five minute walk.

The receptionists spoke wonderful French but struggled with English.

Definitely not a 3 star hotel: It does not even have a restaurant: The breakfast is actaully good, the rooms are not.It is dirty and poorly maintained. It is also noisy. The staff are disinterested: There are much better hotels within walking distnce

Shabby and tatty. Some rooms - very small doubles - are more like dark cells, but the flies in residence enjoy them! We refused the room we were offered (number 31 bedroom same size as bathroom atleast 6 flies) and insisted on change which we were given. In new room - style grade, corner - furniture falling apart, drawers stuck/jammed.
The photos showing gardens are a small public park on one side not its own grounds, as the hotel is part of a shopping pedestrian area.
The breakfast is quite good by French standards - fresh eggs to boil, ham, cheese, pastries.
The hotel does not have parking (its does not claim it does) but central Amiens' multistory car-park, some walk away, is not well enough monitored, better security needed.

Room Tip: Style grade rooms OK, but not vfm.

I stayed here over the Easter weekend with a group from Australia who were attending the Dawn Service on 25th April. The hotel could not have been more helpful - our check in was easily dealt with, information for a chemist that would be open on a Sunday was given and best of all, a full breakfast was provided before we left at 3.30 am and another when we returned at 8.30 am. I have stayed in many hotels in France and this is as good as most and better than some. The comments from previous years may have been valid then, but improvements have been made and I would be quite happy to stay here again. The only real problem is parking, especially with a larger vehicle.

We stayed here for one night after a mix-up with our previously booked B&B. We didn’t have the opportunity to check Trip Advisor and selected this hotel on the basis of convenience. Three of us had rooms 27 (small and cosy but OK for one person) and 28 (large king-bed room). Clean, comfortable and adequate would sum it up. As it was Sunday night we had free parking outside, the staff were helpful and friendly enough, and there was an elevator. We chose not to have breakfast at the hotel as there are plenty of cafes close by. Wouldn’t highly recommend, but it was OK for one night at short notice. Perhaps a bit expensive for what you get.

Room Tip: If possible, ask to see the room first.
