Reviewed 20 September 2013

The hotel is ideally located next to the castle. Very easy to access when coming from the train station (5-10 minutes walk) or by tram (there's a tram stop 1 minute away from the hotel). The hotel is quite small but very charming. The colours are quite dark (grey and black), but that is part of the charm. I got a room facing the castle without having asked that so it was a really nice surprise! It was fine size-wise, although I would not have minded having a bigger one! The bathroom is ok too and I must agree with other reviews, the restroom is a bit too small/claustrophobic.
What I absolutely adored was the little Nantes guidebook about "chic" places (from interior boutiques to shoes, clothes shops, restaurants, etc). That was a brilliant idea with fantastic recommendations! Well done!! That says a lot about the service and the staff. Really good and service-minded.
Breakfast was good too with local products.
I also really like the fact that the shampoo and and soap were organic.
Therefore I would definitely recommend this place!!

This Hotel is located just in front to the Castle, in a really conveniet position for visiting the city. Our room was on the side of the building, at groundfloor, giving to a nice court. The room itself was clean, but as it is very usual in France, really small, with minimal furnitures and a small french size bed. The bathrom was splitted in two: the first area was really liveble, with a nice shower, while the really restroom was a little bit claustrophobic, something like 2 square meters without any window. The overall style of the hotel would like to be modern, with a lot of silver and black colours but we found it quite dark, remembering in a sort of way more a club than a hotel. Overall a good hotel if you like its style.

Room descriptions were fine and the position of the hotel is ideal. Car parking on-site was a MUST for us so it fitted the bill. Availability of service was a little sparse but otherwise it did everything it said on the tin, if with little panache.

Room Tip: Avoid the noise of road frontage.

Location was perfect, walking distance from the train station and right by the chateau and the old city. The staff was nice and spoke enough english so we could get all the info we needed. The room actually smelled like perfume after the housekeeping staff stopped by. Not many options in terms of room service, but there are plenty of restaurants at walking distance.

A short walk from the station, helpful staff, and clean room what more do you want. I stayed in a room on the front of hotel overlooking the road, the bathroom etc was fine so apart from traffic noise, I was perfectly happy. Continental breakfast was abit sparse, but it seems you win some/loose some in France. I would stay there again.

Fortunately I only stayed in this hotel for 1 night on a business trip....looks lovely from the outside, but the rooms are tiny (it didn't help that I was sharing with a colleague). The twin beds were squeezed in beside each other (i.e. touching), there was no door on the bathroom.& he toilet seat was taped together with gaffa tape. No internet access either. Breakfast was ok, but that doesn't make up for the room unfortunately!

Stayed there 3 nights in october, 4th floor, castel view. The room was very spacious and the view really nice. The thing is that this hotel was refurbished not long ago (I guess) but already looks tired. The bad thing is definitely the bathroom which as an horrible/unecessary curtain to separate it from the room. They also decided to separate the toilets with a door but you'd better not be clostrophobic to go there, soooo small!
2 very good points: The breakfast is absolutely delicious and the staff is really nice.
Perfect location, close to the train station, the castel and the old town.
Would recomend it!

Room Tip: Castel view is nice but can be a bit noisy. If you have light sleep, wouldn't recommend
