Dear Kevin S, Thank you for writing down your comment and recommendation about our hotel. We hope that everything went well to go home, and that everything is working out for the best.

I very much like property. After my first stay here, I have never considered another hotel. It is clean, quiet, comfortable and well maintained. The staff is both efficient and friendly. The adjoining restaurant has a great selection, features local cuisine and is very tasty.

Hotel was nice, maybe a little bit on the older side. We booked a familyroom and it had four beds but was still quite small for our family of three. The staff was ok, the brekfast was good, nothing to complain. The minus side was the location, this hotel is around 30 minutes walk away from the lake and city...

When we booked our one nite stay at this hotel, we had no idea that there was going to be an International Bike Race held in Annecy early the next morning. So when we arrived and checked in, the hotel was fully booked, and we only got our room due to a late cancellation. Our stay was much nicer than...

A small but cozy hotel with a very friendly and helpfull staff just a 30 minutes walk from Annecy historical center. The area is calm so you can have a quiet sleep. There is free wi-fi and free parking just outside the hotel.

If you are on a business trip, then Hotel Novel might be good for you, as it is away from the noisy city center and offers quiet and clean rooms, and a lot of free public parking. But nothing else. Rooms are like ship cabins without refrigerator. Wifi is very slow and the reception is unconcerned. Very expensive for what...

We had a fairly pleasant stay for our extended weekend in Annecy. The room was simple but clean, as was the bathroom. The staff was very friendly and helpful. We didn't try the breakfast so cannot comment there. Our biggest complaint was the wifi. Only one device can be connected at a time, which meant my boyfriend and I had...

Hi, it was quite a good deal to find a hotel at the last minute and that too in the center of the city for most affordable price. The breakfast was not upto the mark, as the bread plate was empty and cappuccino was too sweet.
