This hotel is a decent alternative to one of the cheaper chains like Ibis. For motorcyclists, the integral garage space is excellent. Well, it would be excellent for a Zeppelin pilot as it is huge! For non-motorists, the hotel is very near the railway station.
Rooms are adequate for the price point, with free wifi. Don't come here if stairs are a problem as there is no lift and they are very steep.
Charleville Mezieres exceeded expectations. You will need to explore the city as this hotel does not do evening meals. There is a brasserie in another hotel across the Square de la Gare if you do not want to walk far. However, I recommend you take a few minutes to walk via Rue Daux to Cours Ariste Briand. From there keep walking towards Place Ducale along Rue de la Republique. You will pass many restaurants along the way, with the price getting higher as you approach Place Ducale! We stayed 2 nights and dined in a brasserie near the fountain on the first night and a créperie in Rue de la Paix in the second. Both were pretty decent and had good value fixed price menus.
Reception will give you a map and recommend places to dine if you ask.
Breakfast was fine and the service was good all round.
Six of us on 6 bikes stayed 2 nights on the way home from a trip to the Alps. I had a very enjoyable day criss-crossing the Franco-Belgian border numerous times as I explored the Ardennes region during the spare day. This would be a good base for a long weekend for a solo rider or group (20 rooms available). For UK residents, the Channel Tunnel is about 3 hours away by the most direct route.
