A last minute selection whilst on the train up from Aix-en-Provence, we needed somewhere to stay having decided on Grenoble as a quick one-night stop-o ver. This was chosen as much for proximity to the station as price. Sometimes, the areas around stations can be questionable but this is not the case in Grenoble – this hotel is immediately opposite the station, and the environs are clean and trouble-free – the only ‘disturbance’ being from the trams turning (which may be troublesome if you are a light sleeper and have the windows open).
The room was very spacious and well appointed, with a good bathroom with separate WC. We slept well and breakfast the following morning was a perfectly respectable continental style (it was included in the price so we thought we may as well). The hotel was very quiet (not sure if we were the only guests ?) but reception staff were polite and efficient.
I’d normally avoid ‘ chain’ establishments, but I have to say that on occasion, I find the ‘Best Western’ offering retains a balance and often retains the integrity of an original building and offers a reasonable experience based around traditional styling and modern comforts. In this case, it worked well.More
