“fine”
Reviewed March 29, 2012

Hotel is not bad, it has a free wifi which was working correctly. But room was really tiny, we were there for just 1 night so we didn't care for this, but in case we would be staying there longer it might be not comfortable. I enjoyed bed, it was really comfortable, usually when I travel and stay in different hotels, in most of them I don't sleep well, but in this hotel NO PROBLEM :)

We booked the room online for 46€ (double room) and as for Annecy which is quite expensive (hotels) this price was great! You have towels provided, soap and shampoo and wifi.
Our room was not on the street site but on some kind of small park. But attention! I have an impression that during summer it can be loud there as some teenagers like to hang around exactly there. They were there during our stay, at some moment they finally left - I can imaging due to cold night, but it will not be the case in summer.
Hotel is not too far from city center, it's within walking distance. Not far from hotel there is a big supermarkt, many baker's shops and also small charming river with quiet park.

In overall, for this price I can recommend this hotel.

This is a basic hotel with a basic price. We paid 49 Euros a night for a twin room. In the event we were kindly upgraded to a big room (with a double and single bed) as we asked for a room far away from the lift.

The hotel is largely clean, extremely quiet and from one side has stunning mountain views. The staff were helpful, in particular the night porter.

We weren’t expecting much for the price to be honest, and our expectations were favourably surpassed. Only two gripes – a strong smell of urine in the loo (which was clean, think it was more of a plumbing issue) and the hideous scratchy polyester sheets.

That said, It’s great for a short stay at that price.

My girlfriend and I went to this hotel for four nights. On the Internet it looks really nice but in real life it isn't. We had room 217.

We liked:
- the private parking
- the location, quiet at night and only a few minutes by bicycle to the city centre
- English speaking staff (the older, bit balding guy is top, we didn't like the young lady)
- value for money

We didn't like:
- standing water in the badroom
- the rash we got from the bed and sheets (maybe bedbugs?)
- overall tidiness

I liked this hotel. The room was small, but the layout is thought-out so the room was very comfortable. The staff speaks English, it is nor usual in France))

This hotel although not fancy in any way was great value for money. It is situated in Cran Gervier which is 10 minutes walk outside Annecay. The cost for a double room is 50 euros per night plus 6 for breakfast. It was clean with plenty of towels and hot water. Breakfast was the continental variety but plenty of it and you could have as much as you wanted. Very good value and although maybe I wouldn't stay for 2 weeks fine for a few nights after a cheap flight from Edinburgh to Geneva.
