“Well located”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 August 2013

Well located in the centre of Epernay with clean rooms and good facilities. The hotel made arrangments for us to get into the hotel on Sunday despite the reception being closed which was helpful. However there was no real welcome from the owners/staff on the Monday when we met them. The hotel itself was good but I felt it would have been nice if they had introduced themselves and checked that everything was OK with our room when the met us.

An odd little hotel; apparently it described itself as colonial, so read that as sparse. Clean, basic but great for the location. No where to park nearby unless you're happy to feed the meters. Eventually found a side street. Great bars nearby to watch the world go by. Nice little high street, with plenty of champagne themes. More communication with the proprietors would of been nice ie, what time breakfast was available, how to find more pillows. The air con wasn't working but a small fan had been provided, this barely kept on top of the heat, but better than nothing. The view from our room was of a brick wall and a conservatory style roof with the restaurant underneath. The bed was narrow, and the shower head had to be hand held, but it was clean and adequate for our trip.

Le Magellan hotel is right in the middle of Èpernay. The location can not be much greater than this. A walk to the Avenue de Champagne takes five minutes.
The room was ok. The bed was a little bit small for two people. The bathroom was large, much larger than previous we have experienced at similiar hotels. Both the room and the bathroom was nice, and well cleaned every day.
Ordered breakfast one morning for 8 Euros per person and it both tasted good and filled my stomach.
Wifi-connection was free, we did not even know there was wifi until we asked. But the Connection was not good in the evening for some reason.
We lacked a mirror in the room and there was no trash can either. Had to use a plastic bag to put all the garbage.
The staff was very polite and the man in charge spoke good English. Just outside the city centre the parking for your car is free. But it can be hard to find a vacant spot. The walk back to the hotel is less than ten minutes.
One night we parked the car in the underground parking garage close to the hotel. The cost was about 28 Euros for 24 hrs. During the weekend the garage does not open until seven or eight in the morning.
Épernay is a small Town and the number of restaurants is limited, but the town is cozy and a great starting point if you want to explore the Champagne district and all the Champagne houses.

Quite a basic hotel but in a good location for visiting Epernay and the Avenue de Champagne. Parking is very difficult although we were recommended somewhere to park free it is mostly by meter near the hotel. Our hosts were very helpful and we enjoyed the breakfast.

We stayed here for the second time. Hotel is located in city centre. Rooms and bathrooms are basic but modern and clean. Beds are excellent! I would definitely go here again for a next champagne trip!

The location of the hotel is fantastic, we parked the car when we arrived (this is a short distance away from the hotel) and then didnt use the car again until we were leaving. Our room was located at the front of hotel and because we hadnt closed our window properly on the first evening we found it quite noisy from the street but on our second night we closed the window fully and it was a lot quieter. Our room was bright, modern and really clean as was our bathroom. We did miss a mirror in our bedroom though and had to use the only mirror which was in the bathroom. We found the walls and ceilings very thin and did hear other guests in the hotel,however our friends had a much quieter room at the back of the hotel and were not disturbed at all.
The bar had a great vibe and everyone was extremely friendly . The breakast was fantastic value and really relaxed, we took at least an hour to have our breakfast and were under no pressure at all to leave our table. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would definately come back to Le Magellan again when its time to restock our champagne supplies.

Room Tip: Rooms at back of hotel seem quieter but dont have a view.

I made this reservation and was guaranteed rooms 1 & 2 on 1st floor; when we arrived 1 & 2 were gone so gave us 3 & 4 having to climb huge amounts of stairs with luggage etc. We were promised wi-fi in every room and that is not the case... NO Wi-FI in rooms only in hotel lobby and only on occasion. Too many times we have checked into a hotel or B&B and they all say "yes we have wi-fi in rooms" and mostly that is not the case. This hotel is very noisey as you are right on a busy street AND to save the best for last... In my daughter's room she went to go take a shower this morning and there was hair all over the floor in the shower GROSS. She had to come take a shower in my room. Don't get me wrong I LOVE EPERNAY just not this hotel. We left by 8am the next day and still no wi-fi even in the lobby... not as advertised in any way shape or form.
