We stayed just one night and were pleased the the cleanliness and comfort of the hotel - the bedrooms were small, but very well equipped with desk, plugs, wifi, mirrors, etc, The double bed, however, was extremely large and comfortable and it was nice to have a separate toilet - as well as a good bath/shower - and we had a balcony which had it been summer would have been great. The only problems were that my husband and I both had laptops and we were only allowed to log one of them on to the wifi. Also the room was poorly lit - so reading was a problem - the bathroom was brilliantly lit however! Soissons is a very pleasant town and the hotel was an easy walk from the centre and in an attractive area. The only other problem we had was that we were there on Sunday night and there was only a very limited menu in operation - but the food, while not very exciting, was perfectly adequate. While this is far from a cosy family run hotel and is obviously set up for business travellers as well as tourists - we would be happy to stay there again - as indeed we hope to when visiting my grandfather's grave on the centenary of his death in 2014. Soissons is an excellent place to stay if you are interested in WWI and the Retreat from Mons, or the Battles of the Marne, and the Aisne.
