I enjoyed my stay at this hotel. The staff are friendly, polite and helpful. The rooms were well kept and very clean. The location is great since it's right on the road where the stores are and not far from the lake.

The staff is really welcoming and nice! We had a very clean room with a fascinating view to the lake! Very comfortable bed. There is a big free parking place behind the hotel. The check-out is till 12 O'clock, what was also very good. We took a breakfast and we didn't regret it. The hotel is on the pedestrian street...

The rooms were a very good size and very clean - amazing for a 2 star hotel and they were very comfortable. The location was extremely convenient for all that Evian had to offer. As it was just off a main street with lots of shops, french cafes and restaurants. We were slightly worried at first that it would be...

Clean and quiet room on the 5th floor, looking onto back courtyard. Satisfying breakfast with excellent baguette, viennoiseries, local cheese, etc. Courteous and helpful staff. Went the extra mile to try to help. Wifi a bit spotty, but the whole town seemed to be experiencing problems at the time. Tres bon sejour. Personnel tres aimable.

My wife and I stayed on Valentines night as it was cheaper than getting a cab to and from the ski village we were staying in! As we were arriving circa 7.30pm we received a friendly email with the door entry code and a room key on the reception desk (unstaffed at that time on Sun night). We left our...

We recently spent a night in Evian and selected the Hotel de France based on the rate, and reviews from this site. Location: Hard to beat. Located in the middle of town, you are practically close to everything worth seeing in Evian. A 5min walk from the waterfront, the Evian source (if you can call a small spigot that spills...

Hotel France is in the middle of Evian les Bains at with wonderful view to the Lehman lake. It was very clean and comfortable. Very rare in France but members of the staff speak English and Italian and are very helpful. There is a ferry to Lausanne in about every 90 minutes so Hotel France is a perfect place to...

Arrived mid-morning after long international flight only to find that check-in was normally a bit later. The reception told us to wait just a bit on the lovely terrasse - that also is part of the breakfast area - and they would get the room finished shortly. The room had very nice linens and the bed was very comfortable. Great...

old and not comfortable! this is wrong, we renovated all our rooms in 2013 and 2014. The wireless terminals that covers the hotel are brand new, coverage is very good. We remind you that you have booked in a 2 star hotel with a 2 star price on Evian. You wanted more comfort and service, you should book a 4...

Arrived after 9pm at the hotel (email to advise them of late arrival) and our room keys were left out for us.
