“Awesome family apartment”
Reviewed 2 September 2013

We booked the apartment ("flat") for our family of 4 for 2 nights and were stunned by the size and design. Two bedrooms, full kitchen and a large sunny living/dining area at a very reasonable price. Good location very near the city centre and opposite a park. Paid car parking available on other side of street but cheap and lots of free spaces. We hardly needed the car as plenty to see and do within walking distance (tram also only one street away). The reception staff were very friendly and helpful and spoke English well. We would definitely stay here again.

spent 2 nights in this place - perfect 2 star hotel, very cheap but everything absolutely fine!
Location is perfect especially if you travel by car since parking is available right in front of the door and anyway city center is just 2 minute walking.
Wifi connection works...and staff is really polite trying to accomodate guest needs.
Bathroom was really small...but the shower roomy and comfortable
If you're travelling on budget, book a room there (even though I would not suggest at all to stop in Brest...)

Absolutely the highest recommendations for this Hotel! The staff was exceptionally friendly and helpful, the room was good sized, clean and had everything a 2 Star Hotel should offer, and even in August the room rate was really good compared to similar rated hotels in western france. We were offered a quiet and family friendly room on ground floor. The breakfast buffet offered a variety of good food and drinks. Highly recommended to all visitors of Brest.
If I could I would give the hotel a third star at least!

The Abalys hotel is easy to get to by car and usually there should be no street parking problem (for pay by meter). The location is excellent, close to the pedestrian walk and shopping, and close to the harbor views.

A convinient 2-start hotel in the centre of Brest. Ideal for budget business trip. Friendly and diligent staff. The stardard room includes comfortable king size bed (matress too soft in my opinion), TV, computer, free wifi. Breakfast is alright, but it can become boring after a couple of days (as in most of the hotels). There are many cafes, restaurants and bistros around so the choice is there.

A very tiny closed with poor ventilation can put some of you off even though it is clean. Carpet is not my cup of tea either, but it is a 2 start, so I am not going to complain.

For those travelling with babies or handicupped, the lift is tiny and there are stairs to the way to some of the rooms (maybe there is a second lift, so please ask before discarding it.

Room Tip: Highest floor (lightful), view to the gardens (relaxing)
