Perfectly placed hotel, walking distance of the main squares.
Staff helpful and polite.
Breakfast a bit pricey at 16 euros.
We ate in the restaurant which wasn't too busy but it was a Thursday night.
At 19 euros for 2 courses it was reasonably priced
Wine on the middle/expensive side.
A great stay and not enough time to see everything we wanted to..

Just stayed the night, but the staff were friendly and helpful. Our room was large, comfortable and clean. Breakfast was not included, and seemed expensive, so we used the cafe in the railway station across the square.
No car parking, so we paid to park in the square - free from 6pm until 9am, but duration of stay is meant to be for only two hours...

Finding the hotel on SatNav was impossible. Having traveled all day by car, it was almost 22h30 at night when my SatNav kept taking me to the wrong location! Also had great difficulty in finding the hotel through Goolge Maps GPS Locator on my mobile phone was equally challenging. In desperation, I called the hotel and thankfully, the Receptionist offered to fetch me from my location in the centre of town. I found this most unusual and must give them 100% thumbs up. The room was okay, but only offered pay TV, which upset me as it was soon after the Paris terror attack a few days earlier, and I really needed some news on developments, and it being late night after 23h00, I was imply too tired to bother.
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.

There is no reception staff which is what makes it so incredibly reasonable. If you don't mind feeling like you're having a little adventure & you aren't spending any time in your room - this is the place!
Good, clean comfortable with a good restaurant attached. Excellent wi-fi reception in the room. A little way out of town, so would need to drive if eating out.
Breakfast good, buffet style, but a little pricey (10 Euros per day).
Hospitality tray in the room, but only two milks allowed, no more obtainable from reception!

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.
