“Good location and good service”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 11, 2014

We stayed at this hotel for two nights with a group of friends. This small hotel is at a perfect location near the centre and riverbank in Saintes. The rooms are quite tiny, but very clean and cosy, decorated with bright colours and quirky furniture. The service was good, although speaking even a little French is recommended, as some of the staff may not speak English. The bar/restaurant downstairs is nice, and they have great cocktails! This might not be a the right hotel for families or light sleepers though, because the street in front of the hotel is quite noisy until about 1am. Not too pricey, although the breakfast could have been a tad bit more elaborate. There is little else than baguettes and croissants with cheese/ham. Otherwise we were quite pleased with our stay.

we arrived at this hotel and after walking 3 flights of stairs we opened the room door to beer cans on the floor, and an unpaid bed. thankfully my father managed to explain this to the man on the desk and after a wait we were given another room. They are small with small beds and no AC and being in such a central location this meant we had a choice between boiling or a loud roads, meaning sleep was difficult.

Good free wifi.

The rooms are nicely furnished and very good value, a bit of AC and they would be unbeatable.

I was a little sceptic about this hotel but I must tell it was beyond my expectations. We had a special request to have a really early check in as we had to leave to La Palmyre at 55 km from there and would only be back very late. This was without any problem. The manager could not give us the room immediately but gave us roomnumber and code so that we could arrive as late as we wanted. Very friendly and helpful staff. Our room was little but very clean. Bathroom with all facilities. Only minor problem the noise from street, but then again the hotel is very well located. Breakfast was simple but more then oke. I would definately recommend this little hotel.

Room Tip: If you want to avoid the street noice ask for room with view on the river Charente

We had a late one-night stop-over here on our way down South.

We had made no booking and arrived very late, so were were happy that they had rooms available as so many hotels seemed to be full.
The staff were pleasant, directed us to secure and inexpensive parking nearby and were even able to provide a lovely late supper.
The rooms are have a quirky 70's style design with red satin throws, matt black walls and carpet in the pattern of old-fashioned timber flooring :-) but super modern looking chrome and glass bathrooms.
A good buffet breakfast was served the following morning
