Reviewed 11 May 2013

Arrived in Reims with no accommodation booked, tourist info centre suggested that this was a hotel that was still in the old French style, we decided to go with this as we were only staying 1 night. It's close to the train station and in the Main Street with lots of restaurants to choose from.
From the street the hotel looks very basic , once you go through the alleyway you enter the hotel through a lovely garden, friendly staff on arrival, clean rooms, and has a lift, the room was a bit small but for a nights stay does the job, our room was on the 2nd floor (16) no street noise got a good nights sleep. Breakfast was €10 Would recommend this hotel

Staying here was very easy with our rental car. You just park underground right beside the hotel. Lots of dining options nearby, but be aware, it was hard to find a bowl of French onion soup in this town. The breakfast was delicious, but expensive. So worth it. I wish we had breakfasts that good in Canada!

Walls a little thin. Popped open a bottle of champagne and the neighbor seemed awfully distraught about what that loud pop was. Oh boy! It's Champagne!!!!

Would stay again if life ever allowed me to return!!!

We recently stayed at the Hotel Crystal on our way to and from a week in the alps and found the hotel was in a very convenient position in the centre of Reims close to the train station and pedestrian area with a secure car park right outside with a reduced rate for residents of the hotel. The hotel was very clean and the staff very friendly, we found the rooms to be clean and suitable for our short stay. We did find however that the noise between adjacent rooms was quite considerable and we didn't have the best nights sleep with people coming and going and noise from the other rooms.

Cool hotel for a Reims visit. Best location to experience the city. Brasserie Flo is close and the Cathedral is in walking distance. Watch out for parking "Erlon" when you enter the city and you are there. Be aware, there is no night life except the street next to Crystal. Let you explain the pronunciation of Reims at the reception :-) and take "french" breakfast in the street instead of the hotel.

Room Tip: 31 is good, the higher the better, there are restos in smelling distance.

We stayed over night at The Hotel Crystal on the way back from the Alps. The hotel is really charming with traditional features like the glass door lift and lovely courtyard.

Initially the approach from the main high street lures you into thinking you are going to be staying in some hostel round the back of some old restaurants, however once you arrive through the old passage to the courtyard entrance you find a little piece of French magic unveiled.

Yes the hotel isn't the most upmarket in Reims but it is possibly the most charming and friendly.

Worth a shout for an overnight stop.

Room Tip: Go for the rooms on the top floor to see over the old rooftops in Reims

Walls so thin you could hear every snore in next room. As well as people coming and going all night long. Smoking allowed in rooms and seeps into hall and other rooms. Heater not working well.
Parking was very convenient. Right on the main drag for the Christmas Market.

This hotel is really central but suffers from identity as it's accessed via a passageway between two restaurants, I had to speak to a policeman to find it. It has a very pretty courtyard in front and a rather old fashioned feel to the entrance and lobby which is nice. The room I stayed in was on the fourth floor accessed by an old and interesting elevator. The room was well worn and immediately gave the impression that the place had seen better days but the linen and towels were clean and it was functional for a city centre hotel of this type and price. There was a fair amount of noise from extract fans from the adjoining restaurants which meant the window had to be kept shut, which I guess could well be a problem in summer. The receptionist was friendly and helpful and the breakfast was very good.
