Premiere Classe Le Mans Centre - Palais Des Congres
Ranked #34 of 41 Hotels in Le Mans
Reviewed 1 June 2014

As this was a budget hotel I didn't expect much, but a good nights sleep would have been nice. On arrival check in was slow as the receptionist struggled to understand our questions and couldn't provide answers. Our room was next to the lifts - luckily in our case one was broken as they were really noisy. Although the bathroom and bed linen were clean the room had a strong smell of smoke and the carpet had stains all over it. The bed was really hard and the walls paper thin which meant we could hear people at the side, above and below us so we had a really disturbed night. The shower was a power shower but if you turned it up the shower head jumped off the holder. The shower curtain may as well have been none existent. I wouldn't recommend.

If you're considering staying at a Premiêre Classe, you already have low expectations. This place won't exceed them. On the positive side, it's quite centrally located -- twelve minutes' walk from the railway station, less than five from Place de la République. The reception desk is manned twenty-four hours a day, a comparative rarity for this chain. Otherwise it has little going for it. The somewhat decrepit rooms emit a powerful odour of bleach, cigarette smoke and mould, immense quantities of which I found growing in the shower cabinet. As is typical of Première Classe rooms, the bathroom soap dispenser was empty (experienced travellers bring their own). Bedlinens and towels, while not stained, were uniformly grey. The wi-fi is so slow as not to be worth bothering about. All told, it's the sort of place where even the less fastidious traveller, attracted by the low price, will want to keep his or her stay to an irreducible minimum.

Parking was a nightmare, had to find a meter and pay and also get up early to feed it in the morning. Entrance was shabby to say the least, A dirty lobby and lift up to main reception where thankfully those on duty were most helpful. Room was clean but as basic as could be, the toilet was one of the most cramped ever. Ordered breakfast but wish I hadn't. not even facility for a piece of toast and the choice of other things was boring and limited. Sadly even though the price was very cheap I will not return and hope that all the other hotels in the chain are better than this one it was soul less and slightly depressing.

Room Tip: Try to book the hotel's limited underground parking.or else leave time to find a meter if you ca...

There for business. The price is not high for a single room (around 40). Breakfast 5.90 € and poor: baguette, brioches, orange juice. The lobby is not as expected by an hotel "première classe". Strange entrance (from the floor -2). The room is not big, the toilette is VERY small. The wifi really slow, maybe when I was there related to a problem. There is a bar inside. No shampoo/shower gel in the toilet. For my room (double bed) there were two towels. There is the moquette both in the room and in the toilette. Where was the wardrobe ?

We did not book ahead and should have for a Sat night even though we stayed in the mid Feb as no double rooms left so had a twin. The outside of the hotel does not look promising but after taking the lift up 2 floors to reception which was bright, clean and airy. Reception staff very welcoming and spoke English. Room was quite small and bed too short for my 6' husband but ok for one night. Nice town which was within 5 mins walking distance. There is car park but this was full but were able to park on the street for free. Intend to return to Le Mans as want to explore and would stay again.
