“Very nice people and cheap nice hotel”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 2, 2011

My boyfriend and I passed two nights in this hotel and honestly for the prize we paid it was very well, we even had breakfast in the morning. People in reception are very nice and friendly and ready to help. And the location is not bad either. I truly recommend it!

This is a great hotel if you're here to 'do' Sete. The location is industrial, and the views are concrete not seaside. The rooms are very clean and the staff are simply brilliant, humouring my broken French and stupid questions.

Breakfast has a good selection and excellent value at 4E70. For us Brits there are proper tea bags, cold milk, and even a toaster!

It's a 5 minute walk to Sete proper, which we did day and night and felt safe. We walked to the Theatre de la Mer in 25 mins, and the beaches in 40 minutes. Buses were regular and only 1E per trip. Taxis were a very rare sight.

The wireless internet can be a little erratic, and cuts you off every 30 minutes. However when connected speeds were good. It was free.

A nice touch was the 1 litre bottles of very cold mineral water available 24 hours a day from reception for 2E. Not the cheapest but a great price for the convenience.

This hotel is basic, everything is clean and simply works perfectly.

My wife and I stayed there after been let down at a number of other places locally and this was a last resort, although if we stay in the area again it'll be our first choice.

Ok, the rooms are basic, but what else do you need if you are only there to sleep. Sete's a great town and there are some brilliant beaches nearby.

The only downside is that it's not in the best bit of Sete, but then again, even if you spend a few Euros on a taxi late at night, you've still got a good deal! It seems ok during the day as it's next door but one to a Carrefour supermarket (another bonus).

Finally - the reception staff are first class!

My wife and I only stayed here one night for a beach experience on our tour through south west France. Apparently Sete is popular with locals in Languedoc.

We only paid EUR44 and so expectations were managed. However, from the moment we were greeted by a friendly receptionist we were steadily impressed. The room was spacious and very clean. Wash basin and shower had nice lines and oddly, were fibre glass - but it worked! Even had BBC World on the TV.

Only downer is it is a good 25 minute walk from the station and 15 minutes from centre.

Sete is a working fishing port but distracting enough for a two day trip.

I was very skeptical in booking this hotel as it had no previous reviews and therefore didn’t know what to expect. Etap Hotel Sete is located in a quiet little street in downtown Sete. It has secure free parking. The check in procedure was smooth and fast, the receptionist helpful – provided a map of Sete and advice. The hotel is very clean with cheap and plentiful breakfast and spotless new rooms. It is a great find for a minimal price.
