“Great value in a traditional hotel”
Reviewed 21 June 2008

I stayed at this hotel on a trip to Auxerre with my teenager. We had a triple (all they had left) but enjoyed the extra room after a few cramped nights at other locations. The room and bathroom were very spacious, clean and comfortable. The staff spoke no English, but were friendly. We opted for breakfast at a local pastry shop rather than at the hotel. I loved how close we were to the old, central part of town and its big, lovely cathedral. I would highly recommend this hotel to the budget traveler, especially if you want to avoid the big chains.

My mother and I stayed for a long weekend in April. We needed a hotel close to town centre as we were organising the last details of my wedding which was taking place in June. Our first impression was that the hotel was clean and ideally located - just 2 mins walk from the main pedestrian area of the town centre.
However....
the breakfast at €11 was a complete rip off. Miniature pastries, some plain yogurt, 3 types of cereal and tea/ coffee. That's it!
They also got annoyed with us for not telling them we did not want breakfast on the 2nd morning - well if it wasn't such a rip off we would have done!
Also please note that they do not like you returning to your rooms during the day and you must leave it by 11am for the cleaners. This wasn't a major problem until Sunday when we discovered that the hotel CLOSES from 11am until 6pm. Yes that's right, you are kicked out for the whole day. Had we known this in advance we would have hired a car or arranged some kind of day trip. Auxerre while being a lovely town basically shuts down on Sundays and my mother and I were more or less walking the streets looking for something to do. I have never come across this in a hotel before.

Good value for little money. Great location: just outside old city and near the Tuesday market venue, yet our room was quiet. Staff did not speak english, but tried their best to please us. Room decor outdated however it was spacious, same goes for the bathroom (large tub, bidet, the works). Nice stay.

  • Liked — Location, value for money
  • Disliked — staff not speaking anything but french
  • Tips/Secrets — Tuesday market just a 1 minute walk
  • Stayed September 2006, travelled as a couple
