Recently spent 3 days in Reims for a business meeting and to do some sight-seeing. The hotel is on a quiet street just across the train-tracks from the center of town. It is a pleasant and easy walk into town - close enough to walk to 100 restaurants for dinner or to see that Cathedral, etc.
"Perfect stopover between the Alps and the Tunnel"
We found this place to be more than adequate for a 1 night stopover on the way back from the Alps to the Tunnel. We struggled to find “Family accommodation” i.e. 2 Adults & 2 Children in the same room, and were pleased to stumble across this place. The location is a little out of the way, so if you are looking for a night out on the town it might not be suitable. However the supermarket was less than a 10 minute drive away. We had pre-cooked a Spaghetti Bolognaise which partly defrosted in the car on the drive down, which we were able to microwave, and use the cooker to make some Spaghetti. The accommodation, was a good size, the bed and the sofa bed were new and comfortable. Only negative would be the lack of glass ware (Wine out of fruit juice glasses!) and the cleanliness of the items in the kitchen. Seems the policy is for the resident to clean up (dishwasher and tablet provided, but no detergent, dish cloth, or tea towel). So the stuff could have been cleaner. All this said, being well prepared from a self-catering holiday it was absolutely fine for the night, and we would stay there again, Cheap and Good Quality, not cheap and Nasty.
Nice quiet location which was very easy to find. Good car parking plenty of Space. Excellent and very warm welcome and the staff were extremely pleasant and helpful, mostly able to speak to us in English. Good comfortable room, spacious and clean. Good condition generally although some of the fittings seemed a bit tired. Breakfast excellent though not cheap but the dinner offering was disappointing and not very high quality. Overall a nice stay but not perfect.
Have stayed in various hotels in Reims and found this one to punch well above it's weight as a Campanile. Reception staff could not be more helpful - even coming outside to assist us with a parking space because their garage was full. Room size is much larger than expected. Did not eat in the hotel but the restaurant did look good.
Location is superb. Easy access from motorway - opposite the canal - a short stroll to the cathedral - shops and parks.
Reims is the main city of the renowned Champagne area and is a central spot for those wanting to learn more about fine wine. There's more to Reims than tasty bubbles however, as the gothic architecture, lively street bars, and hidden culinary treasures will demonstrate. The magnificent 13th century cathedral, Notre-Dame de Reims, overlooks this charming city.
