Reviewed 5 September 2012

Booked through Booking.Com. Arrived and had no facitlity for credit cards, bedding and curtains full of holes with exposed plaster on the walls. Accept that this is a very budget hotel/hostel but expect linen "fit for purpose" even if the room is 67 Euors per night. Shower and toilet facility disgusting. Didn't stay the night!!!

Stayed: August 2012, travelled with family

We stayed at Centre International de Sejour (CIS) for one night and it was a last-minute booking. We arrived very late in the evening and left at check-out time so we didn't have a lot of time to see most of the facilities.

The staff was very helpful and got us checked in quickly. We were two people, so we booked and were assigned a private room on the 4th floor with a private shower and toilet. One first impression, the hotel seemed to be something between a normal hotel and a hostel. The lobby has lots of common areas, televisions, bulletin boards and vending machines.

The room had two beds - one queen sized and a single bunk-style bed over the queen bed. It's a bit of an odd arrangement, but it's very functional. The beds were freshly-made, clean and reasonably comfortable. In our case, the room did not have air-conditioning.

The room's bathroom was private and clean, with a shower, sink and toilet, but it was quite small. The room comes with no soap, no shampoo or other amenities. You'll need to purchase them out of vending machines in the lobby if you did not bring your own.

Unfortunately, I am not able to comment on the breakfast since we didn't have it. But it finishes at 9am! So make sure you wake up early.

The location is very good. It's walking distance to almost everything in the city center of Reims. For locations a little bit further, it's about 30m to the closest tram station (Comedie) and from there you can reach both train stations in Reims and access the entire public transport network.

CIS is a simple, no-frills but convenient place to stay. Just remember to bring your own toiletries

Good food, good accommodation, helpful staff, thoroughly enjoyed stay. Would stay again. Good location for visiting Rheims Cathedral and good sports facilities and park nearby, with shops located in area.

It's hard to see your euro stretch very far in france, but at least CIS is the cheapest accom in Reims. The rooms are no frills but are clean and have a nice view into the surrounding park. There isn't much of a hostel vibe here... Basically we hardly saw any other guests for the whole stay. Depends what your after, but I wouldn't recommend it to lone backpackers unless you like to be alone... It's close to the swimming pool that's next to the football stadium and only a short walk into town.

I had actually lived here for almost two months in the past. I stay here whenever in Reims. CIS offers you a room (with shower but without toilet) and breakfast at approximately 35 Euros. Its breakfast is consisted of cereal, fruit, drinks (milk and juice) and baguette (but no croissant)! Forget about two or three stars hotel in Place d'Elron unless it's Ibis or bestwestern or Holiday Inn. I can guarantee this accommodation is the best value for money in Reims. Reims is small town, thus you can easily access to city center and Cathedral by walk while staying here. Certainly I will be here when visiting Reims.

I though this hostel was going to be a hard to find student squat, it doesn't look like much on the website. I was most pleasantly suprised when we arrived. First, it was very easy to find, you can take either tram right outside of the train station to stop Comedie. Then it is a 2 min walk to the hostel. The staff was very friendly and spoke English. Our private twin room was very inexpensive and was a decent size with a lot of storage. The ensuite bathroom had only a sink and shower, but the shared toilets down the hallway were really nice. It seemed to be well booked, but our room was very quiet. We unfortunately were not able to enjoy the free breakfast, since we had to catch a very early train. This place seemed to cater to just about everyone, I saw people of every age group here. There are good vending machines here with hot and cold beverages and also soaps, razors and other items one forgets or loses along the way while travelling. I would definetly stay here again. It was one of the nicer hostels I have encountered on my travels.

Room Tip: There are a lot of stairs, so we asked for a first floor roo. When we booked.

We thought maybe we were a bit long in the tooth for hostel accommodation. Consequently we were delighted with our clean and serviceable en suite room. All the staff were naturally pleasant and friendly, and the help-yourself breakfast (included in the tariff) in the cafeteria was extremely good value. Most of the other guests seemed predominantly young(er), but we found the general ambience very quiet and orderly. There was plenty of free parking nearby, free wi-fi, and the 10-15 minute walk into Rheims town centre was no problem. The hostel had many facilities we didn’t have time to enjoy, but the drink/sweet vending machines were very handy after a hot day’s sight-seeing.
