“Hotel Renova-tion, more like!!”
Reviewed 1 August 2011

I chose this hotel, mainly on the grounds of it's central location and the fact that it was about as cheap as one can get in Nantes at this time of year. On the plus side, the location is ideal; it is literally about 30 seconds walk from the main tram station, and is no more than quarter of an hour on foot to anything one would want to see or do in this city. That, however, is the only positive thing to be said about this hotel. The corridors are poorly lit and mouldy, whilst the walls in my room were badly marked. The room I took also looked as if it was in the middle of being reorganised (table and chairs in the middle of the floor?!?). I imagine this hotel might be the local council's dumping ground, as the room next door to mine was occupied by some very undesirable-looking woman, and there was a lot of noise going on both late at night and early in the morning (the soundproofing was pretty nonexistent).
That said, however, the staff were friendly and helpful, and you really couldn't get a more conveneint location. If all you want from a hotel is somewhere to sleep at night and have a bath, then this is more than satisfactory, but not one for those who like the luxuries in life. Hotel Renovation might be a more apt name!

Room Tip: If possible, try to get a room on the first floor, as there are no lifts!!

Reviewed 26 September 2010

I had a few days in Nantes (a great city I'd really recommend) and booked two nights here to take adavantage of their weekend offer - still around 37 euros per night. It was pretty cheap compared to the other hotels I looked at so I was expecting it to be basic.

The location was great - about as central as it's possible to get (although Nantes is very easy to navigate on foot). The staff were fairly friendly although my preference for paying cash was not allowed and I had to pay by card.

My room (sixth floor, no lift) and the communal rooms could have been cleaner and the stairs were just dirty. There was cracking paint everywhere. There was also a fairly pervasive toilet smell in my room which was pretty unpleasant - this meant I slept with the window open but because the curtains (falling to bits) were fixed to the windows I was woken earlier than I would have liked. The breakfast was really basic (fair enough), the crockery all chipped or broken and the washing up was not exactly thorough.

As above I expected the hotel to be basic but it just seemed like the management have let go of even the basics. If price is an issue it's better to go to the youth hostel - otherwise I'd suggest spending a few more euros and going somewhere else.
