The hotel has comfortable bed with especially nice pillows, which is important to me. Many amenities are included that aren't usually. The rooms are pretty spacious compared to most you will find in Grenoble. The design is a little bit 'cold' and not necessarily my cup of tea, but sort of interesting at the same time. The elevators aren't very 'smart' in their programming. Sometimes they switch direction when you expect them to keep going the same way.
The location was superb and the room was nice and warm. Long black hairs came out of the jacuzzi bath when the jets were turned on. My fair haired daughter was in the bath at the time and her body was covered in long back hair. This put me off using the jacuzzi although we had paid extra money for the room especially to have this treat. I re-ran fresh water but when I turned the jacuzzi on the hairs kept coming!! I hope we were just unlucky as all else was clean.
WiFi and the clean room Street Noise
Central location A bit pricey relative to amenities
close to railway station. 24 reception, so able to check out early for train. great location on square
The position of the hotel in the city center next to everything. The room was very small.
The people at the reception, especially the morning crew was very freindly and helpful. There was a rather unfriendly lady at the reception desk, who left the recognition and greetings of guests to her colleague.
Great location, excellent value. Nothing really. A very pleasant stay.
the central location
To my knowledge, this hotel is the only one in Grenoble to offer a warm, cosy, and tasteful environment, and a bit of class. The location is magnificient. The staff is extremely helpful and nice. There are many small attentions not always found in similarly priced hotels -- free international press, free wifi, free parking, ... Although I warmly recommend the hotel, I has some drawbacks. The renovation starts to be slightly outdated. The standard rooms are small, the beds are the old French standard size beds, i.e., too short for me. Electrical switches can be inconveniently placed, there are too few electric outlets. Street noise is a (minor) problem even with all windows closed.
Location,location and the scene of alps mountains The staff aren't so friendly beside the room isn't well prepaired
Localization. It is close to everything I wanted (big square, cine, supermarket,etc.) Absence of internet wireless access, but it offered internet cable access in the room.
It was clean and had laundry services available.
Balcony space Kitchen too small
Kitchen facilities but no wine bottle opener. Car parking was convenient. We didn't expect an uncomfortable foldout bed in a room of this quality. There is no mention on the website that this room contained a fold out bed. We would never have booked this room if we had known this.
Nice alternative to a hostel for a few backpackers looking for a cheap but good room in a convenient location.
A great place to stay with young kids as gives you the convenience of seperate bedrooms and kitchenette. Reception not manned 24 hours
nice hotel, situated very well in the center of Grenoble
good location with walking to old Grenoble. food shopping across street. very clean and comfortable. microwave was useful. no parking for arrival and checkin. parking garage difficult to find and small but adequate.
Good value for money for a family
Room was spacious; kitchen facilities just right. Location was perfect -- across the street form two markets, outstanding cheese shop down the block. Tram stop three blocks away. Relatively quiet street. Service could not have been better. None
The rest room has a nice design you dont have full control on the AC, i tried to switch it on but i couldn't
The Decor No Hotel Bar
Excellent location by the railway station and tram outside the door to the town centre. Excellent weekend rate for a smart hotel
The refurbished rooms are nicely designed and practical, and I really liked the rain shower head in the bathroom. The size of the room - it was rather small and very condensed.
The location is conveneint in terms of access to trains. Tl area is however less than satisfactory. Do excrement on the sidewalks and generally cooking smells from the restaurant Internet access is the worst of any hotels that I have stayed in. The internet access was lso not free. If the Hotel is selling vouchers for internet access, they should make sure that the access I savailavle from any room located anywjhere.
The staff were really helpfull and extremely polite. The hotel was very clean including the rooms. You had access to a Tram across the road which brought you straight into the old town. The rooms were small but well laid out so it didnt matter too much
Location excellent, good breakfast, Internet very good, rest average Room pretty small, though not unusually small for Grenoble; TV didn't always work
Wifi for 5 Euro per day is reasonable. Would stay there again.
very friendly stuff, nice bar downstairs, good location and it is amazing that this hotel has so bad reviews. Maybe it is because it was just renovated and not new building. housekeeping was not very good, but it is 6 from 10 so not so bad
The location is very nice. Being close to the train station but not noisy at all. The room is clean. Additionally, there are fitness rooms and free xbox360 to play in the lobby, which are awesome choices in spare time of business trips. Also, the staff are very nice.
good staff, location and free internet, flexibility in extension of the stay when required. sad that the breakfast is not included in price
almost everything The hotel is at a quiet location. It should be possible to open the windows. Much better than ineffective air conditioning
excellent location, close to bus and train stations but only a short walk into the centre of town. very helpful and friendly staff. Bar prices
i was having a 2 day meeting at the chamber which is in the same building room temeperature hot, cant open windows and when i moved to a room where i could it was very noisy outside
The staff was very friendly, and helpful. The room was very comfortable. Breakfast was very good. Facilities as businessman was also very good.
Central location was good, rooms and breakfast were very good.
It was nice room with good restaurant. Sauna club has some space for improvement.
the staff were very friendly and helpful, breakfast excellent and wonderful view of the mountains from room on top floor.. also good location, within walking distance of the old town.
Unsual artwork was interesting. Staff in the restaurant were cheerful. View of the mountains was good I was not told that the restaurant would not be open on Sundays before I booked. The restaurant was very understaffed
Comfortable rooms, with modern design, wonderful bathroom, great soft bed & cofee / tea in the room and the option of free parking. If only Internet access was for free, it would complete the whole great experience we had... That didnt change our minds though, that it was a great place to stay.
Clean comfortable room and very friendly and competent staff Jacuzzi/Hot tub was not working = I reported it but did not hear from anyone.
Quality and value I have come to expect from this brand Information in the room said hotel bar close at midnight,however the two members of staff at reception drinking coffee said it was closed at 1120
The friendly staff at reception, always there to greet you with a smile happy and to answer any question you might throw at them about anything. No
The staff were very accomodating and spoke English. The room was lovely and the breakfast was amazing. The only small problem was it was a way from any decent restaurants,which meant we ate at the hotel,with limited choice.However the meal was good,if a little expensive.
The hotel was well situated for our needs.
The hotel has a nice lobby and friendly staff but it is not centrally located for those that wish to tour the city. My stay was disappointing. Internet access was pricy at almost 25 euros for 24 hours. There was little hot water one morning and the room air conditioning was anemic at best. There are better hotels in Grenoble that are more centrally located with lower prices. I suggest the Tulip Inn Hotel Angleterre which is on the edge of the Old Town or the family run Trianon.
the kindlyness of the staff and also the brfeakfast enough... the room was too row...
I liked the location which was really close to the city center and the tram station but... The room servce was unacceptable ( I came back from my city visit tired and looking forward to having a nice rest but what I found it was my bed linen was the old one and they didn't even arrange it properly! ). Besides, they didn't even have the do not disturb tag and many times the housekeeper interrupted my sleep. Another thing that really concerned me was the attitude of the receptionists who always talked in french with me even though it was clear I couldn't speak it.
Good location - within easy reach of the centre plus some nice bars closer at hand. Pleasant staff (including 24-hour reception). Breakfast was good value. And Grenoble itself is a fine little city. There was a lot of building work going on nearby during my stay, meaning noise in the daytime plus quite a lot of cement dust around so the air was drier and less pleasant than one might have hoped for in an Alpine city.
Very nicely decorated in cheerful colors. Extremely friendly staff. Conveniently located close to trams and near main library. Excellent A/C and great free WiFi. Rooms are effectively sound-proofed. Shower was quite small and dark, thanks to an annoying blue shower curtain. Bed was so-so.
The services were great.
The breakfast was the best for my France trip so far. It was a short walk from a Tram stop. It took a while for the staff to attend the front desk. I didn't think the service was represented in the price of the room but these days everything seems to be price tagged over worth.
kind staff, the proximity from the tramway station i did checked that the breakfast was inculuded at the price, however while i was having my breakfast, the owner told me that there is no reason to offer my breakfast and that i should pay for it. finally i didn't pay for it, because the owner found that was miscommuncation between booking.com and her hotel but anyway that was very unpolite to approach to client during having meal.
We needed a nice and uncomplicated hotel and everything was according to our expectations. No luxus class, but we didn't expect that. Clean, nice crew. And: free internet \o/ The coffee could have been a little bit better but breakfast in general was fine.
Good value. Close to Tram Line C so good for the University campus, otherwise a little out from the centre (10 minutes' walk).
I was looking for a hotel close from the train and bus station and also close from the old city center and this was perfect! It is also close from the great attraction of "the bastille" a fort on top of a hill. Also close from the river. We had a great room with view on the snowy mountains in the back. Our room was purple colors, very modern &nd trendy and with great modern furniture. The bathroom was modern and the shower fantastic. The bed was huge and very confortable. small great attentions like bottles of Evian and sweets. Nice TV and a maximum level for sound which means you cant hear your naighbours TV. Breakfast was excellent and the dinner room colorful. There was a great selection of croissants and yummy french bakery items. There is also a machine to make fresh squizzed orange juice. Staff was very helpful and nice. Only one small minus, there was no safe in the room but the hotel seems safe enough. Would def go back!
Excellent location. Staffs are all English speaking. Reasonable price. Breakfast is rather expensive.
The hotel staff were very friendly and helpful. The location in the downtown by the tram and near tourist sites was excellent. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay!
Great location. It's very near the train station. The room is very beautiful and comfortable.
Friendly and helpful staff, clean room that had been recently renovated and an attractive breakfast room. Felt an effort had been made to update the decor and make the hotel trendy. Only that it was hard to find, even with sat nav. The side of the hotel from which we approached had no sign or indication of it's name so we drove round and round for a while and in the end had to get out and go by foot to find it. Clear directions on booking would be helpful.
The location is extremely central, it's easy to move around as 2 tram lines pass in front and it's only 5 min from the trainstation. The building is historical, and has a nice feel to it. My room had a bad smell, of old sweat and smoke. Only after airing it for several hours did it get less, but every day again the smell was there. Breakfast is not included and costs 8.50 euro. For that, I would expect at least to get a decent coffee. However, the automated machine produced an extremely sweet, hot chocolate alike cappuccino that was impossible to drink. The next day I went elsewhere for breakfast.
It was in the perfect site. The room was very clean with a great view. The food was exceptional. The people was friendly and helpful.
The hotel is right in the heart of Grenoble, walking distance from the station yet within the pedestrianised area of Place Grenettte. Hotel itself is unpretentious but it is very good value. This is the third time we have stayed there and plan to do so again. The only downside of being in the pedestrianised area is the sound of the trams running past - but this is only a minor quibble.
The superb view across the central square of Grenoble and the mountains. Centrally located, the town centre and public transport are only a few steps away. Good price for such a central hotel. During the stay there were very hot summer nights - which are very stifling in Grenoble as the air doesn't circulate. The hotel has no air conditioning, and no fan was provided. Opening the windows for fresh air meant the room was very noisy. In all, a good hotel for winter, not for summer.
Excellent location for an outstanding price. It doesn't get more central than this and is a minute away from underground parking.
Interesting old building, wonderful location on old city square, easy walking to all parts of old city, good clean room, good breakfast, and very pleasant and helpful staff.
Helpful staff and receptionists; quiet location and easy access to buses, trams and restaurants.
the friendly welcome
broken light, wifi not working
the hotel was close to the centre of grenoble building work that woke us up at 6.30 in the morning both ays of our stay.
Staff were very friendly and helpful.
woulb be nice if breakfast was included.seems to hard to get in france.
The rooms, internet utilities, breakfast and hotel staff
hotel is very nicely decorated, colorful walls etc
Very friendly staff The Wifi was too slow to be useable (lots of timeout messages)
Great location -- could walk to train station and central town area.
Made a lot of effort to accomadate our twins in travel cots in our room No highchairs
I liked its location. Breakfast buffet vvery good.
Hotel and staff were just great! Bit expensive for the quality
The were not enough signs to find the hotel. It was a long walk, too far really, from the town centre/restaurants. This was not clear on the website.
The politeness and readiness of the personnel to serve the clients even under difficult conditions (public transport strike)
Calm in spite of the nearby tramways and heavy trafic.
Nicely situated close to centre price a bit high
The hotel is located in the main street between A41 and A48 and easy access by car. The breakfast is average. Parking space is too tight and very limited. The use of a car more than mid size is not recommend it.
Helpfulness of hotel staff (although english is a problem). Rooms were quiet and well heated. Very good breakfast with a large choice of food and beverage. The bathroom (shower + toilet) was tiny.
good sound bed,no noise from traffic,it was value for money.near the train station and tram too,allso near the cable car. yes the wall too close to the toilet,how did they think and large person could sit on toilet seat,with the wall so,so,so,close in front of it.
The location in the city and the price-to-quality rate The rooms are very badly isolated so you can hear everything from each other.
This hotel is very comfortable, quiet and convenient:
A good choice, not so expensive, quiet room, good location
Friendly and helpful staff, room and bathroom very clean, close to the center and the train station The night I stayed the temperature was high and the room was stifling. The room and bathroom were very small. Not recommended for long stays neither for overweighted people.
The staff were extremely helpful and friendly. Great location. No air con which made it a bit hot at end of July.
Close to City centre and facilities
It was different - check-in by phone, all services by phone (polite and responsive); close to nice tea shop for breakfast , and very nice restuarnt accross the street. Short , but uphill to main rail station - card for free use of public transportation and convient to great shopping.
a nice hotel, very polite staff, clean and cosy just enough to feel relax NO
It was in a bad part of town. Around many abandoned buildings and nothing to do.
Great service from attentive staff.
Nearness to tram way No
Bed Advertizing picture in Hotel litterature does not reflect reality. Example: Pool has not been cleaned for 200 years....at least it does look like it!
breakfast not good
friendly staff, clean & comfortable room. Although on the outskirts of town, had easy access to city centre. no complaints
We needed a cheap hotel to stay overnight on the way to spain. The hotel is not in the city-centre, but in a very good location if you are by car. The Hotel was clean and the receiption team was excellent. Breakfast seem to be very expensive with over 12 Euro and it was not clear before booking the hotel that it is not included in the room. The hotel equippment in the room has seen better days!
The personnel The very poor quality of the television (screen), room cold, bathroom not very clean
Location close to city center and our room was comfortable. Windows are sealed.
Clean, comfortable, good value. Nice part of town with lots of local feel cafes and shops. Also close walking distance to centre.
Proximity to the wonderful city of Grenoble; the provision of a parking space
The staff was extraordinary nice and tried to help out with every little thing. Free WiFi, convenient location, very inexpensive. It is a budget hotel... no coffee maker in the room, no vending machine for soft drinks, and similar.
Comfortable, yet cheap hotel, in convenient location close to city centre, and train station,but very quiet.
Bien situé et propre. La déco st traditionnelle J'ai eu tres froid pendant la nuit.
The garage was very very small, problematically used.
The staff could not have been more helpful - always welcoming and available to answer any questions or queries. The room was comfortable, very clean and the bathroom facilities were excellent. I liked everything - a great hotel to stay in on a Grenoble visit!
a nice hotel, 7-10 minutes walk from the train station. very quiet place. My room was clean and there was wifi, although have not tested it. Was there in summer, July, maybe they have conditioning, but could not find it, was pretty hot.
The location was nice. The room had a large and disconcerting mirror on one side.
Completely refurbished in Winterseason 2008. The rooms look great. The only negative: the rooms are rather small and the beds are quite small for two persons.
