Nice hotel in wonderful surroundings in the old city of Soissons. The ruin of the old monastery Abbey of St Jean des Vignes. Only one in the staff speaks sufficient English. Nice restaurant with really good menu.

Very easy to get to as it's not in the centre of town, this hotel is smart and modern with well appointed rooms (including tea/coffee making). The spacious parking is undercover and free of charge - very unusual and appreciated. The staff at reception were all very friendly and dealt with check-in and out very efficiently. A short walk will...

We had a pleasant stay in this hotel but the room was far too hot. It seems that most rooms don't have air conditioning. We were provided a fan (upon request as opposed to room standard) but this is hardly a solution as they are extremely noisy and not designed to replace air conditioning. It also didn't make sense that...

Our usual stopping over en route to the UK and I thought we would enjoy a pleasant final night at the hotel in which we'd previously stayed more than two years ago. Quite what has happened in that period, I don't know. The hotel is now a triumph of style over substance. Everything looks lovely, including the beautiful planting outside!...

Dear Laurence, As the days you came were the warmer of this summer, and as it rains a lot before, all the area was warm and the air was not dry. That kind of temperature are not usual in this region, and our hotel, which is a low carbon footprint building, is built to manage the local climate. I can...

Easy to find, this modern hotel presents well on first sight, although the lounge/bar/dining area being all co-located can be quite noisy. We were made welcome at reception, had a very good dinner and breakfast and the bed was extremely comfortable. The one downside was the lack of enthusiasm of the receptionist on check-out - she appeared to have better...

We stayed here one night en route back to Calais & the UK. Best Western Plus are reliably comfortable and up-to-date business hotels, and Hotel des Francs is no exception. It was excellent value, perhaps because Soissons is not a main tourist destination. Our dinner was very good, but be careful or you could spend a fortune on the wine.

Stayed at this hotel last night. It is a clean and very well presented hotel, the beds are comfortable and quiet. The evening meal was okay but the burgers were too red/raw within for our liking. The omelettes and desserts very good. Breakfast is a limited offering but good. Yes we would use this hotel again.

This area of Picardie is void of any top notch hotels. The Best Western Hotel Des Francs was the best we could find. It was a modern hotel, large rooms, free underground parking, and nice breakfast. We opted for a room with a terrace overlooking the abbey. The view was fantastic, especially at night when the abbey was lit. The...

I stayed at this hotel for a few nights while on a business trip in the region. The breakfast was OK, the room was nice and clean, the personnel helpful. They also have an underground garage free of charge. The wifi connection was weird though. Every five minutes I got disconnected and when I tried to load another page my...

This is the second time we have stayed at this hotel which we found very comfortable and convenient it is modern and has secure parking. We ate in the restaurant and both enjoyed our meals. The room was very clean and a good size. We found the staff friendly and helpful. We would definately stay again.
