Was surprised at the quality of the room for the price. Really big room for 4 people, led tv on the wall, excellent shower in the bathroom. All seemed very new and was surprised only a 2 star. Staff's english was not great but managed to convey that we would be late arriving in spanish instead. The spanish speaking staff really friendly, offering lollipops to the kids etc. Good location close to some restaurants and a big Leclerc.
In house restaurant was of a great standard. Staff very friendly and helpful. Option of an Express breakfast is available at the bar, which is a much cheaper option for those of us who need something but not enough to warrant the 13-20Euros requested by most hotels now.
"Upgrade or face the consequences - the choice is yours!"
This hotel seemed to be geared for late night rendezvous? We thought we would try this hotel just so we knew what one star meant. It means one star. The room was a bunk bed (one double, one single above) with a bathroom unit inserted, as an after thought. It was as though someone expected there was going to be a mess that needed cleaning up. This is a horrible place, don't take your children there. Not nice.
"If you need to stay in the area, this is an excellent choice"
This is an excellent hotel - the rooms are big, bright and extremely clean with a lovely bathroom, air conditioning, a modern TV and coffee making facilities. There is also free parking. Breakfast seemed a bit pricey at 9 euros and therefore I did not have it but I did have an excellent buffet dinner in the hotel restaurant the night before which was very reasonably priced. I thoroughly recommend this hotel if you need to stay in the area. At a quick glance, however, St Etienne appears to offer very little to the tourist although its location is convenient if breaking a journey
We stopped here as a half-way point on our trip across France. St. Etienne is a dump of a city, so I doubt that there are any better hotels. This one was barely 3 stars. The room smelled, the carpet was old and worn, and there was no air conditioning. The bathroom was nice.
Located in a quiet area in Northern Saint Etienne, the 2-star hotel Austria is very close to the Geoffroy-Guichard …More
