“A must see in Nancy”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 July 2014

If you are in Nancy for a short time, do not miss this square. It is absolutely great during the day, but at night it turns into a spectacular night show! I have never seen anything like it! It usually starts past 10pm and goes on for good 20 at least. There are also a lot of bars and restaurants in the square that are really busy during the night. There is a huge University in the city so a lot of college students hang out there at night. There is also a cool ice-cream place on the square that sells gelato and makes it into a rose in your cone. It's a bit pricey but totally worth it! Sooo good!

“Delightful for the eyes. Impressive.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 July 2014 via mobile

First time to visit Nancy - though our stop was brief, it was worth checking out Place Stanislas with its gilded gates all around, buff-coloured stones on the ground and the statue of Stanislas almost at the centre. Grand cafes line the border of the Place on most of the square's perimeter. On one side of the Place stands the Hotel de Ville which to me us one of the prettiest city hall's I've seen. The whole place is a feast for the eyes.

Since it's Saturday, it seems like a lot of weddings are taking place. Seeing nicely-dressed wedding couples and entourage walking about just makes the visit delightful.

“A must visit in Nancy”

Really impressive to walk around - the architecture and gates were beautiful - and a lovely spot to sit at a cafe for a drink. From here it's an easy walk into the Old Town or the beautiful park.

“Grand Hotel de la Reine”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 July 2014

Beautiful square surrounded by impressive 18th century buildings adjacent to the old city. It's lined with a few restaurants and cafes with others close by on side streets.

“Of course, world heritage”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 July 2014

To go to Nancy is to visit place Stanislas. An absolute must see. I cannot decide if I find it beautiful. I find it stunning. And megalomanical. And French. We know that one always pays top prices for a coffee on such a spot. But being there makes it worth the investment.
