Hotel Suggestion in Annecy

Looking for quaint, cozy hotel, B&B, or inn for a weekend in May. I am traveling to France for business and have decided to add a couple of extra days to visit Annecy. I'm very excited... the photos look beautiful. I will be traveling by myself and will not have a car (will arrive by bus or train) so looking to stay in the center of town where I can walk everywhere but feel safe...but not break the bank. I would appreciate any recommendations.

Thanks so much.

Hi Rosanne,

As you don't have a car the choice is limited. There is only one B&B in the city center, have a look (sorry it is only in French):


Hotel Spendid has good reviews:


You may also try one of these little hotels:

The "best" (ie classiest) and most picturesque hotels are not really in the centre of town. Perhaps the best compromise is the Splendid - not luxurious, and "quaint" is a word that only non-English people use, so I'm not sure what you are really expecting here - but it overlooks the lake, it's central, and not ridiculously expensive. The majority of the others are a bit anodyne, part of chains. But look at www.lac-annecy.com/gb/hebergements/hotel.php

Try historic rentals.com

We have stayed at this apartment in the center of Annecy, great place very safe and right in the center of town overlooking the river on to the old jail.
