The hotel rooms have a kitchenette and fridge and are mostly used by business travelers. The rooms are over the railroad tracks but there are very few trains between 10 PM and 5 AM. But there is no air conditioning, so you can only open the window on the railroad tracks and listen to the noise... But it has heating for winter time.
For those traveling by car, you need to make a reservation for the hotel parking at the same time as your room (6.5 Euros a day) or parking will be almost impossible. The GPS can be set on "boulevard de la gate" instead of boulevard Robert Jarry if it doesn't find it. You need to do to the underground short term parking (free for half an hour and going up quickly after that), go up the elevator, cross the tramway track and turn left facing the train station, get your keys and put the luggage in the hotel room, then go back to the car, go out of the parking and come back to the same parking, this time using a hotel special badge, drive to the garage door to the special appartcity parking area, and take another elevator directly to the hotel.
The hotel check-in system has a very administrative feel to it, you sign a contract, you need to turn in the special badge and garage opener before leaving, it is a bit of a long process. Also opening the room doors is tricky. It needs a badge and a mechanical opening to turn almost spontaneously. The room is very clean, beds and bathroom are also great. There is a little electrical stove, practical to cook something light. There is also a microwave.
Despite all the difficulties to find the hotel and the complexity of parking and so on, it was nice to find twin bed rooms during busy events in Le Mans. It is also great to be close to restaurants and major downtown sites. But it is obvious that Appartcity is geared towards longer stay business travelers who want a home far from home and those familiar with the system.
