We stayed at this hotel in august 2007 and we confirm the previous two reviews. This is definitely NOT a 4 star place.
Highlights (or maybe LOWlights):
a) rooms are way too small: we have a good sample as we stayed in a room on the ground floor and a room on the first floor; both of them had a view...on a private house's garage entrance.
b) not enough space for luggage in the rooms as closets are small;
c) bathrooms: the one on the ground floor got flooded every time we showered. In the one on the first floor it was impossible to shower, as the ceiling of the room was very low (!) AND the bath tub was not clean. We asked them to clean it, came back in the evening and we had to clean it ourselves. If this weren't enough, lights went out in the bathroom after a few minutes because of (they said) safety reasons (never heard of this in ANY other place in the world);
d) the bed side tables in the room on the first floor showed the signs of the glasses put on them by previous customers. We asked them to wipe them out. They said YES and DID NOT do it;
e) menu of the restaurant is fixed AND offers very limited choice;
As a final note, staff spoke NO ENGLISH and showed no interest in the fact that we spoke very little French (e.g. we would have appreciated even the fact they had spoken slowly, but, apparently, that was impossible)
Rennes is a wonderful city: take at least one day to visit it, but don't stay at this hotel!
p.s. this is the only hotel we've ever visited where room refrigerators are placed not in the room, but in the batroom. We were very puzzled to find this out in our room at the ground floor and, thinking of it as an exception, called Staff about it. She told us that EVERY room at the hotel has the refrigerator placed in the bathroom. Needless to say, we were speechless.
