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.

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..

This hotel was exactly as expected and a good value. Rooms were small but clean and quiet, furnishings were minimal, and price was very reasonable. A good solid hotel for a convenient short stay in town. Appreciated that we could opt out of breakfast.
Exceptional staff who waited for us as we were late for check in. Lovely view from our window of the Place d'Heroes. Still hard to manoeuver the flights of circular stairs with luggage so be prepared. Rooms are small but clean and the bed made for a restful sleep. I would return.

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.
