Very well situated and parking nearby. Friendly staff. Not noisy because the old center doesn't alow traffic. Nice renovated rooms. Modern furniture, good beds, enough space. Breakfast was good and enough.

We visited my our daughter for two days in Nante. The hotel is very nice and the staff was exceptionally helpful. They gave excellent recommendations on dinners, and could not have been more helpful in supporting our documentation needs when my daughter was voting abroad. Two suggestions to the hotel: 1.

We've just came back from a mini break in Nantes and no doubt it's the best hotel there... Perfect location, great new rooms and the kindest, sweetest most helpful staff from the girls at breakfast and in the bar to everyone in reception! We will definitely come back as they made us feel so welcome. Thanks to everybody!!!

We stayed for three nights and had great time in Nantes. Our corner room was stylish with excellent beds and nice decor. A/C worked perfectly, and the room was very quiet. Unfortunately there were no fridges. The wine bar is the perfect place to relax with a drink, before or after dinner. The personnel in frontdesk, bar and breakfast were...

The pillow in bed was too big, very uncomfortable. Not sure whether a menu pillow was available, most probably the answer is not, but the one already in bed was uncomfortable. No restaurants available in the hotel, except a lounge for breakfast, and therefore no room service. Luckily there are plenty of restaurants just outside the hotel.

The whole hotel is reasonable but without big wow. Nice rooms with everything that you might consider as normal. Location is great but breakfast seems very small choice with hardly any "continental" options.

A two night stay during our tour de France. Now, this is a very hard hotel to access as Nantes is not an easy city to navigate. However, once you find it, and get parked, it is worth it.

Great location, great staff, very different decor and in the centre of the shopping district and many restaurants to choose from. Highly recommend it. Had a bar, fitness area and was very quiet. Room was small but lovely decor and toilet separated from the bathroom was a good feature.
