“Old world ambiance with modern updates”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 16, 2012

This lovely old hotel has been in business for more than a century. It just oozes old world charm. It is decorated in dark wood, cowbells and lots of carved bears and cows. Our bathroom vanity was made from an old sheep or goat manger, topped with glass top and glass basin with lovely fixtures. Floor and walls are beautifully tiled, with mosaic inset in the middle. Lighting is modern and bright. Double pane windows cut out street noise, but any noise in the stairs is quite audible. Only 5 rooms per floor, though. Family/ owners are very sweet and helpful. Secure parking available. Excellent restaurant as well.

Great place. Lovely atmosphere created by nice staff who work very hard to please you. Our room was big (bouble and a single couch/bed with an adequate ensuite shower room. Possibly the best Logis hotel we have used.

While not obvious from the outside, this place is a great home away from home. Marie (the owner) was immediately warm and welcoming assisting us with finding a secured parking space. The rooms were small but very clean, cozy and well decorated.

Try to book rooms on the side of the hotel away from the church ... Our room was on the back side near the church and they ring the bell every hour through the night, tough to get some sleep.

Breakfast was good. Location good. Nice views from the balcony. Solid deal.

We found this family run hotel late at night on a car trip in France, right in the center of Briançon. Very pleasant reception and we got a good deal on one nights stay. Ok room with a strong antique alpine theme with very nice bathroom on 4th floor without elevator, only drawback was the door to the bathroom which didn´t shut properly. Closed parking facility right by the hotel. Breakfast (continental, paid separately) was plentiful and good. Very short stay this time but we would not hesitate to come back for a longer stay.

Does not look that nice from the outside, but once you are in, this is a great hotel. Most of the rooms recently refurbished with nice wooden mountain atmosphere and all comfort. Very clean family run hotel, convenient car park.

We decided that for our stop over in Briancon, we wanted a hotel that fitted the theme of the area and also had it’s own local atmosphere, in lieu of the basic larger chain hotels (eg Ibis etc).

We chose Hotel de la Chaussee (which is surprisingly only classified as 2 star) and were certainly not disappointed. The hotel was built in 1892, is family run, situated in the lower town and displays a typical Alps / chalet theme throughout with appropriate matching décor. Due to the age of the building, there are naturally no lifts and rooms are spread over a number of floors accessible by stairs. The proprietors were also extremely friendly.

We stayed in room 10, which was on the second floor and a good size, as was the bathroom which also had a bath. The room itself was extremely clean, nicely furnished with a comfortable bed, had wifi and local French TV programs. There was also free car parking available adjoining the hotel.

The hotel also has a lovely restaurant which offers the option of a three course menu or a la carte at reasonable prices. The food is naturally typically French and was both good quality and good portion. The only drawback is that the menu is solely in French and as the owners only speak a negligible amount of English, this could perhaps present difficulties for some people. Nonetheless, we managed to quite easily get by based on basic French learnt many years ago.

The breakfast provided was a continental style comprising basic pastries, varieties of breads, jams, yoghurts etc and was more than adequate.

Overall, we thoroughly enjoyed our brief stay and would have no hesitation with strongly recommending.

A great hotel in the middle of town - about 5 mins from Prorel lift. Family run with excellent service. Rooms are in mountain spirit style and extremely comfortable and clean. Evening meal are very good - we had the 25 euro menu which was delicious and there was certainly plenty to eat. Good breakfast. Car park (extra) round the back of the hotel.
