Room was small but clean. The bathroom was excellent. No desk so it was difficult setting up my computer. Close to the heart of the old town ... easy walking distance where there were lots of restaurants.

The hotel is located in the heart of the city and across form the main train station (which you can't) hear from inside the hotel. The staff and morning breakfast are amazing!!. To leave the homeland go for a walk around the area is nice and charming and very safe.
The only real quibble I had was that there was a lot of noise from outside the room that got through so could hear others when they were chatting or getting ready to leave. Other than that, a nice example of a basic hotel room that suited our needs.
We stayed at the Balladins, Arras whilst following the Tour de France. This is definitely a budget hotel but not as bad as previous reviews would lead you to believe. It is very easy to find from the main AutoRoute, with plenty of free, secure parking. We ate dinner in the hotel - mainly because the weather was atrocious and we didn't want to get a taxi into the town. The meal was fine, freshly prepared and reasonable value for money. The house wine was very good and the waitress was very pleasant and helpful. Breakfast the next morning was good value, plenty of choice and a reasonable price for a French hotel. The rooms need updating but everything was clean, plenty of towels and fresh linen on the bed. This would not be our first choice of hotel but certainly acceptable for a one night stopover.

Our concerns at the Hotel being opposite the railway station, were completely unfounded. We didn't hear even the slightest sound of train during the stay. Lovely hotel, lovely staff, excellent inexpensive parking right outside. We couldn't fault the hotel in any way.

We passed by a couple of times before spotting the entrance and managed to secure a parking place to unload. Once inside reception the welcome was warm and friendly and we were re allocated to a room on the first floor to minimise stair climbing for my wife. There is no lift!
The day was hot and the restaurants and bars in the square were busy but there was plenty of choice and it's only a matter of moments from the hotel to relaxing in the sun. Similarly there was plenty of choice for an evening meal and all in walking distance.
We intend to return for a longer stay and would recommend the hotel as it offers a great location and good 2 star accommodation.

The Diamant hotel enjoys an outstanding location in the very heart of Arras historic center , right on the splendid Place …More
Arras is justifiably famous for its two stunning town squares. These opulent spaces speak of Arras's history as a major trading center: the town hall is a fine example of 16th century Flemish gothic architecture. La Place des Héros has a bustling Christmas market and the citadel plays host to the Main Square music festival every summer. Many visitors come to pay their respects at the Vimy Memorial.
