This hotel is very conveniently located in Limoges. We thought the owner and other staff were very friendly and helpful. The room was very small but adequate. Beds comfortable. The French doors opened onto a narrow ally-like space with dirty white walls and litter. This could be so much nicer if painted and two chairs and a table were set outside. Even some pot plants! Breakfast was typical French Continental breakfast, but good. Wifi in our room was non existent, and we had to sit in the lounge to get a signal. The shower curtain was too short and consequently the floor of the bathroom was flooded. The hotel has parking.

Room Tip: Ask for a room with space and good wifi reception if this is important to you.

This is the third hotel my wife and I have stayed in in Limoges in the past 8 months. We had to catch a train to Paris the next day; so we decided to stay at Hotel Familia, which is just a 5-minute walk to the station (itself one of Limoges' main attractions). The hotel has been recently renovated. Our room, overlooking a small courtyard, was clean and the bed comfortable. The staff were very helpful: we had difficulty accessing the net and the receptionist spent some time trying to find the cause of the problem (with success in the end!). We had only two complaints. The restaurant that the receptionist recommended us to go to for dinner - La Baleine Bleu - was very poor (bland, badly-cooked food; slow and uncaring service). We also found the hotel breakfast a bit disappointing. Surely, the croissants and bread could have been fresher? But overall this was very good value at €81 for two including breakfast.

Simple - spotlessly clean comfortable room with good bathroom and a fair breakfast by French standards but the thing that sets Hotel Familia apart are all the staff who could not be more smiley, friendly, welcoming and helpful! - I spent two very wet days in Limoges (which was enough to see all the sights) and they were quite happy to let me stay in the lounge with a never ending supply of free coffee until my evening flight

While on a visit to Limoges, France, my wife and I booked three nights at the Hotel Familia. We arrived at about 2pm on Sunday, and we're amazed (and shocked) that the hotel was locked and that there was no one at the desk until 6 pm. With four hours to kill, we proceeded to walk around the "culturally diverse" neighborhood. There was a beautiful park nearby, but the ambience was lowered a bit by the number of female street walkers, apparently open for business on a Sunday afternoon. When the hotel finally opened for business after 6 pm, we found that our room was small, but very clean, and that the hotel had obviously had a rehab within recent years. The Hotel Familia is located relatively close to the train station, and is centrally located within the city. When the front desk is open (8 to noon, and 5 to 9pm during the week) the staff are friendly and the atmosphere is quite nice. I found the bed to be on the hard side, but the clean and relatively safe environment was a real plus for the price. Wifi was free.

My wife and I spent 2 nights here en route from Lyon to La Rochelle, with the intent of visiting Oradour-sur-Glane. As we had taken the train, the location of Hotel Familia was ideal - about 5 minutes walk from the lovely Limoges railway station. We were very pleased to find a clean, quiet, family-run hotel. The rooms will likely seem small to the novice North American visitor, but are very reasonably priced and have all the amenities needed for a stop-over. The receptionist and staff are professional and very obliging. Breakfast (if purchased) is a plentiful French petit dejeuner.
The location of the hotel also made it perfect for us to pick up a rental car at the train station to continue our journey.
