A friend and I booked this hotel for a long weekend, in large part because of its great central location. We were not disappointed. It is a beautiful old building that has been sensitively converted and the zebra wallpaper in the bar is a wall of wonder! The hotel is at the top of Rue Crebillon, the Place Graslin, so...

Clean, recently renovated and modern rooms. Location is fantastic! Wonderful front desk staff that answered our questions and helped with directions. Buffet breakfast was a nice assortment, lovely bright room. City centre Nantes is basically a pedestrian area but cabs can drive up to the door.

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.
