“A friendly, convenient and good quality base for a stay in Nantes”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 July 2013

We arrived mid-afternoon by taxi from the rail station. Check-in was quick and welcoming for our 5-night stay. We were allocated 4th floor room 401 (designated a spacious room, as booked) reached via the tiny lift. The room was spacious and overlooking the quiet side street which leads up to the theatre, the shopping area and the famous La Cigale restaurant. The room was modern but stylish, with separate toilet and a small but well-equipped bathroom with shower over bath. The location and the hotel are very quiet and peaceful, but only a few minutes walk from the designer shopping area. Very friendly staff who are happy to recommend where to go and places to eat. There is a smart basement breakfast room serving choice of 3 juices, fresh fruit, yogurts, cereals, breads and croissants, etc. selection of cold meats and cheeses. Hotel is very handy for Les Machines, tram line 1 to rail station and interchange with tram lines 2 and 3.  Hotel has small cosy bar area and 24-hour reception. Tea and coffee, kettle and biscuits in room. Everything was very clean and well-maintained. We would definitely stay here again.

Room Tip: The Spacious rooms are worth the small supplement.

Thank you for your great comment about our hotel. Reading it is like reading a tourism brochure, nothing has been forgotten... except, may be, something about the Amazingly wonderful... and so modest receptionist !! ;-)
I hope we will welcome you again soon.
Best regards

We stayed at this lovely old style hotel for only one night having been delayed due to a rail strike. Turned out to be everything other reviewers had said and more. Bed was comfortable, Wi-Fi worked perfectly, room and bathroom were spotlessly clean and very quiet, breakfast was excellent, and the receptionist was as good and as helpful as Reviewer Alice W had said. - his English is close to being perfect. It's not a luxury hotel, but at 89 Euros per night it is excellent value for money, and we would not hesitate to stay here again.

Very comfortable room in interesting hotel in a good location.
What I most liked about it was the great art deco-y feel and decoration - something that gave it real character and made it very different from all the hotels I have stayed in. The only downside was in the bathroom there were wooden slats that were open to a dark-painted peeling ceiling with wires and whatnot that looked a little less neat.
But the best thing was the one super-friendly receptionist who really made my stay great. He was so kind and helpful when I left he really put me in a wonderful mood for the next part of my trip. He is a real asset to the hotel.

Stayed April 2013, travelled solo

We stayed in this hotel last minute. Literally walked in at 7pm. It was a really nice place - clean. The only downside is that parking is a few blocks away in a public parking area. But that is expected in a small old city.

We stayed for three nights in the Hotel Graslin during a very hot weekend in august 2012. The hotel is very clean, quiet (if you close the double windows) and on a perfect location to visit the city. The only downside was the lack of air conditioning but luckily there was a fan in the room. The beds we're good and the staff was very friendly, giving us all the information we needed. Would definitely recommend this hotel to friends.

Difficult to find maybe due to couple of deviations. The hotel was spotless clean, beds very comfortable only downside no air conditioning but there was a fan in the room and with the windows open was ok. Tea, coffee, biscuits and also bottle of water in the room.

Good location

Breakfast was very good.

The very best thing about this hotel are the front desk staff. Nothing was too much trouble, everyone of the them helpful, pleasant and always had a smile (or joke sometimes).

Would definitely return.

Having booked at Hotel Cambronne about 100 m away and very reluctant to stay there went to Hotel Graslin. David on reception let us look at two rooms with different themes. Nice and very clean. Central location parking offered close by. Breakfast room is underground but done in such a high class way you do not notice. For older UK readers think of a set of the TV series Space 1999 but done in style. Nice hotel would stay again. Can be noisy outside but sliding double glazing cuts out noise. The receptionist was a tourist information point in himself recommending current things going on - he was great.

Thank you for your message on trip advisor, i'm glad to saving you from the other hotel you chose on the booking website. And as i told you, ther was surch a small difference between our rate (for a 3 stars hotel) 69€ and the other hotel (which has only one star) which was 59€ !! Remember what i told you, "3 stars hotels" does not mean Expensive hotels... It means comfortable hotel (usually !! :) ) And above all, always try to contact the hotel directly, phone or mail, to know their price, usually lower than on the Online Travel Agencies, as there is no commission due! We hope we'll receive you next time you come to Nantes.
