“Basic place halfway up the hill to the old town”
Reviewed November 14, 2012

The hotel is in an older building on the main street in Briancon. It is not a long walk to the old town where there are restaurants. The rooms are bland but large and the bathroom is small and a bit old. Breakfast is alright. There is some noise at night from people on the street but nothing too bad (there is a cinema opposite). On the plus side we could see a leg of the National Roller Ski Championships out our window! A storage room is hidden down in the basement.

Room Tip: The hotel is on the south side of the main street so a southern room might be nicer.

Hotel Edelweiss is a classic alpine hotel of yesterday. The rooms are basic and clean and if you're after a cheap hotel with-in walking distance to the town centre (both new and old centres) it will suit.
The staff were friendly and helpful with parking available for 8 - 10 vehicles. I cannot comment on the optional breakfast but the breakfast room did seem to have plenty of space and looked pleasant.
It is situated on the main road heading into Briancon from the Italian side, traffic noise was not an issue.
If price and location to the town centre is a priority, Hotel Edelweiss will fit the bill.

Room Tip: No elevator so be aware if you have heavy bags, ask for a ground or first floor room.

Stayed here for two nights with a group of 11 on a Hautes Alpes cycle tour. Hotel had that lovely old world charm about it, and although busy it always seemed to be quiet and serene. Staff were really nice people and were very welcoming.

There was a secure storage area in the basement for our bikes and cars or motor cycles could be parked out front in a private car park.

There was a lovely large garden which offered good areas of shade and a quiet area to read or soak up the sun.

Fantastic location within a very short wall of the famous walled town, where you have the choice of numerous restaurants.

Highly recommend.

Room Tip: Try and get a West facing room with a balcony. Ours was to the rear (east facing) and whilst perfec...

We were looking for a good hotel on the GR5 route through Briancon and this one was just right for us. A nice welcome, lovely and clean with nicely decorated reception rooms and a good quality breakfast. It was easy to walk back up the hill a few 100 meters to the old town.

Just down the hill from the walled town, the Edelweiss is well located and there is the bonus of (some) free parking. Rooms fine and decent size, with en-suite bathroom. Good breakfast and friendly staff. Good value too.

Clean and spacious rooms, ok for the standard and for staying one night. The service was good. A little bit noisy i.e. You can easily hear what is spoken in corridor. For breakfast only cheese or jam with croissants and batonque,would have been nice to have also some ham or salami.
Nice location, walking distance to the center of Briancon.
Good value for money.
