I just returned from a 7 night stay at Hotel Vauban in Briancon, France. I was very pleased with my stay at this hotel. The room appeared to have been recently updated with fresh paint and new flooring. The beds were very comfortable, and the room was very typical of a European hotel. The dinners we ate every night at the hotel were excellent. Always well prepared, visually appealing, and delicious. The hotel is centrally located in Briancon, and is a short 3 block walk to the Gondola ski access. It was very close to bus stops, and the old city on the hill was only a 10-15 minute walk. Above all else, the staff at this hotel is what really sets it apart. Always pleasant and helpful, and the Manager, Julie, gave exceptional personal service, far exceeding any expectations I would expect of a hotel manager.
A previous comment mentions dimly lit hallways in need of repairs, and while this still holds true, it is obvious that work is still in progress on this hotel. But really, how much time do you spend in the hallways? All of the common areas have been updated and look very nice, and the same goes for the rooms - the places where you spend all your time were very appealing.
