First off, this hotel is in the middle of a a pedestrianised area in Nantes and you need a code to get passed the bollards. The hotel will email this to you. As others have said, the car park entrance is not easy to spot and tight to get in. The staff were very helpful, and friendly. The hotel is...

Stylish interior in an old building. Great location in the centre of Nantes beside the "Voyage à Nantes" itinerary and beside great upmarket shops. Free wifi. Excellent breakfast. Very warm and friendly service. Will return. Note that it's in a pedestrianised zone - we travelled by train.

A welcome surprise how comfortable this hotel was! Bright and modern with a well equipped and very clean room. Car park is very small and difficult to find but we managed guided by the hotel reception, apparently it is mainly for disabled guests. There is paid, secure parking close by. Definitely need a satnav for this hotel. Would return!

We had the standard room, which was well designed and nice. Location was good, everything could be reached by foot. The staff was very friendly. I was very satisfied with the price for the anniversary offer by Oceania. We didn't try the breakfast.
