The price attracted us to this hotel and we know that if you pay cheap, you get cheap but you would expect the basics like cleanliness to be good. The hotel was difficult to find and the post code took us to a random street away from the hotel. Parking wasn't clear and no one answered the telecom system in... More

Upon entering the hotel, we were asked if it was possible to pay our room in advance. Upon entering the room, we saw why they did this : a very outdated room, electrical wiring taped together, molded walls, (very) molded shower, airco not working (remote fell off wall), ... Thank you Balladins, never again !

We stayed for 3 nights. As with other reviews we found the hotel a little worn and tired, and having read reviews our expectations were low. However the staff were friendly and spoke english. We had a room with ensuite which was not cramped. Breakfast was included and was good - cereal, juice, fruit, bread, croissants were all available. The... More

We arrived at reception to be greeted by a strong smell of dirty drains. Thankfully, they had messed up our booking and didn't have enough rooms for our family.

Simple stopover place in Annecy. 20 minutes’ walk to the scenic old city and lakeside. Wifi worked but the aircon didn’t. Booked a car space online, but arrived to find no room there; free parking in nearby public area worked out OK. Supermarket opposite. Budget price so couldn’t complain.

Whilst I can only but praise the competent staff who have the unenviable job of manning the reception, I'm afraid there's very little else that I can recommend about this hotel.
