Holy smokes - we LOVED this place! (We also stayed in the Okko in Lyon and had a great experience there as well.) The location is fabulous, the concept is amazing, great staff. And Nantes in wonderful!!
Fantastic staff, great location. Glad we stayed here instead of right in the town centre. Only 8 minutes on the bus to the centre. No room safe but safety deposit boxes available free at reception. The hotel and rooms do look dated and a little tired but as a base for sightseeing it was perfect and the beds were very comfortable. Fridge in the room and kettle and a TV. Very clean and a good outdoor pool.Aircon in the room.
This was a nice hotel with a big room. The bed was a queen sized bed and the bath was full sized with tub shower combo. It had a kitchenette with sink stove, microwave, flatware, plates and cups, pots and pans, and electric teapot like I had in my other French hotels that heated water about as fast as I can microwave a cup of water for tea at home. It had adequate closet space, two desks, good lighting and a security safe. It was a very comfortable room, had a breakfast downstairs available for I think 14 Euros a person. It was about a mile from the train station whited we easily walked upon arriving. When left, we chose to take a cab and it was about a 10 euro trip. The staff was very kind, quick to speak English for me and were kind enough to assist us with directions and to call a cab for us. It also had a good internet wifi system.
An excellent experience. Although we found the hotel difficult to access by car in the pedestrianised historic centre the location is superb. There is small free car park at the hotel and several pay car parks close by. At present the exterior of the hotel is extensively scaffolded but the interior is beautiful and, in contrast, the bedrooms vey modern. The staff behaved impecibally and were most helpful. The buffet style breakfasts were of good quality and value for money. There is no dining available for lunch and dinner but there are restaurants and bars within a few metres of the hotel. The pedestrianised city centre is very attractive and feels safe at night. I highly recommend the city and the hotel for a visit of about 3 days.
We booked a studio because we liked the idea of a kitchenette where we could prepare simple lunches from items purchased at the local market. Problem was that there was no table and chairs to sit and eat. For this reason, we never used the kitchen facility.
Another criticism is that the booking process over-simplified what was on offer. It wasn't made clear that the deal didn't include daily maid service.
Overall good value for money.
One of the television channels did not work, I advised the staff, they were aware of the problem. Unfortunately, it was not solved yet by the time I left (10 days later...).
There was quite a bit of dust on the woodwork in the bathroom, which I cleaned myself.
I was surprised since my last stay was a lot more enjoyable, I can only hope this is a mishap, and not a trend.
Grandiose complex set in gardens in a residential area of Nantes, opposite a tram stop and 1.5 kilometers from the center …More
