Stayed for only one night but this was a great hotel. The breakfast room had a view out over the harbor, a great way to start the day. It is also walking distance to the old harbor. The only drawback I saw was the fitness area is in the adjoining Sofitel so you had to get buzzed in in order...

HOTEL’S FAVOURITE REVIEW
Reviewed 23 November 2016

The hotel is just outside the main old port, so it’s a short walk to the attractions there. It’s adjacent to the delightful Parc Émile Duclaux from which there are great views. There is a frequent bus service from the station (82, 82S & 83) and on round to the bays and beaches to the south. We had originally booked...

This hotel is adjacent to the more luxurious Sofitel. Welcoming and professional front desk staff. Very friendly lobby bar waitresses. Rooms look very industrial and plastic but are spacious and have all amenities needed. They lack atmosphere! Locker and closet. Comfortable bed. This hotel is ideally located to have great views of and to explore the beautiful Vieux Port of...

I spent a few nights where I had great, friendly service. The rooms are average and a little stuffy - operating the air-conditioning did not make much difference so opened the window. Food was good and once again good service. I also used the bar and the gym (shared with SOFITEL) - all good. Excellent view of Fort St Jean...

Although standard Novotel fare - this hotel is ideally located over looking the old port - not central - but situated in a great location with a very pleasurable walk into the central Port area. Good choice for breakfast - good welcome at reception- but bar staff a little abrupt.

Service is perfect, the view is amazing. I was quite disappointed to be awakened quite early in the morning by some noises obviously coming from the Sofitel. For this range of hotel, i never thought i would encounter this kind of issue. 24h parking is à bit expensive..
