We booked this hotel through a cheap internet deal in advance and paid €62. We were allocated a family room which, from the fire escape plan, is the largest on the floor. Wifi internet and breakfast were included in the room price. The internet was reliable, fast and strong signal in room 1207.
The location of the hotel is excellent and it is very easy to find - stand with the main entrance of the station behind you and look to about 1/2 o'clock and it is there.
For those who do not speak French, the staff on reception speak English. They are also helpful and provided information on the town and brought up a towel to the room within about 5 mins of the request.
The room and hotel in general was spotlessly clean.
The rooms are modern and look to have been recently refurbished. They are largely quiet and you cannot hear traffic noise, but you can hear a generic hiss of water through pipes in the background. The rooms are on the smaller side, but fairly standard for a European city centre. The beds are comfortable, but VERY firm. The room is well laid out and everything is convenient. There is a full length mirror, a hair dryer and a large flatscreen TV with a range of French channels. CNN (US) is available if you want English language TV. The airconditioning works well, quickly and quietly.
The bathroom is tiny, but very well laid out and again, very modern. The shower is amazing - it has a rain shower, then a 'normal' shower, then two body height nozzles (for a shower without getting your hair wet) and a foot tap. Lots of hot water and good power as well. Generic combination body wash/shampoo provided but no separate hair conditioner. Although there were two adults in the room, only one large towel and two smaller ones were provided - an extra large towel was provided promptly on request.
There are no tea and coffee making facilities in the room itself, but downstairs there is a large hot water boiler with a large range of teas (and I presume coffee, although I didn't look) in a comfortable seating area.
We have not yet had breakfast so cannot comment on that.
OVERALL: we will certainly stay in this hotel again and we will be recommending it to friends and relatives who are seeking somewhere to stay in Rennes. This hotel is an excellent example of what a budget hotel should be.
