Ihave to admit that thehotel gave me a nice surprise as soon I arrived there. The feature I liked most was their rooms, which were very cozy, big, decorated in a great manner and very good housekeeping. Its location was very suitable for going on shopping and have meals. It was a pity that when we arrived was on Sunday...

And how glad we were to have chosen that option.Our room was wonderful, really large and with a great view over the square. That did cause one problem ( noise...

Loved the location and the character of this hotel. It was a bit difficult to reach the hotel in the evening since it's located on a pedestrian area. You must contact the hotel for a pass word to be able to drive close to the hotel at most times during the day. Also ask the staff on how to drive...

Not a cheap hotel, but interesting historically (old coaching-inn?) and well placed for visiting the lovely city of Nantes. The austere decor upstairs is not to everyone's taste, and our bathroom was minute, but the staff were friendly and helpful. The hotel is on a side-street, so quiet -- and close to some excellent restaurants. Good public transport nearby.

The rooms were very reasonably priced and it's about a 20-25 mins taxi ride from the airport. Would defo recommend for a weekend break. One comment is...

Hotel de France Oceania is in an excellent location at the top of Rue Crebillion - the street of posh clothes and bags! Ask for room 313 - it had the most wonderful view over Place Graslin with its fountain and amazing street lamps! The hotel is opposite Le Cigale restaurant which has an extraordinary tiled interior.

We stayed for one night at the Oceania and we couldn't fault it. The location was perfect walking distance to everything and the hotel itself was fresh and modern without taking away from the old world charm. The rooms were spacious and clean and the staff were always happy to help.
