“Excellent Value”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 March 2014

Selected the hotel for its location. New structure on the site of a former department store. No car to worry about.
Found the location very practical and the facility very well appointed, even though it was for one single night. Room was very spacious, well appointed, with large windows over the street (that has no traffic). Furniture was new, modern and attractive.
For a longer stay, the room has convenient stove and microwave.
Bathroom was very clean, very utilitarian yet well appointed with hair dryer and heated towel rack.
The tram stop that will take you directly to the train station is located 50 m from the front door,
The wireless service was a bit of an issue: the system offers the choice of free limited wife (no VPN access) or broader band and VPN access for a fee, but I could not register anything to pay the fee. The basic wifi was sufficient for my needs on that night, perhaps due to the low occupancy on that day.
If I were to return to St Etienne, I would most definitively stay at this property.

The down point of this hotel is the speed of an internet, these days I believe it is important component choosing a hotel.. I upgraded my internet speed and payed extra €20, but not much of a difference..Otherwise, hotel is good, nice breakfast, good location, relatively clean..

This excellent hotel is situated In the very centre of Saint Etienne and our room was very spacious with a comfortable, firm bed and stylish modern furniture plus a kitchenette with a large fridge. Front desk staff were friendly, efficient and very helpful. Car parking was situated close by and was not overly expensive.

However the breakfast was dreadful with very little variety on offer at the unreasonable cost of 10 euros 50 cents. In my case this was for a boiled egg which I had to cook myself and a bread roll. Much better to walk down the street to the boulangerie instead.

I would stay there again but not pay for the breakfast.

Room Tip: I think most of the rooms are good.

Great location for the centre of St Etienne. A well-equipped, stylish apartment/hotel room. Very good value for money. Didn't have the breakfast as we had such a well equipped kitchen which was a real bonus. Great to have a separate room for our son. Would go back and recommend to friends and family.

Room Tip: Ask for a quiet room - not on the main road!

Nicely converted apartments made this a pleasant stay. Large rooms, mini-kitchens, all well-appointed and super clean. Modern. The hotel is centrally located - supermarket is a block away, lots of shopping all around. Plenty of restaurants nearby. Nice, helpful English-speaking staff.

I stayed here one night in May 2013, and hands down, this is one of the best hotels I have ever stayed at.

We got a large studio with a kitchenette including a microwave, a large fridge and all you need of cutlery, glasses, plates and cooking devices. The room had a stereo, a pretty big flatscreen TV, ironing devices... The bed was comfortable and the window faced a quiet backyard. Everything was super modern, chic and new. Unfortunately the floor was very dusty and dirty, but since everything else was spotlessly clean I think they might just have forgotten the floor. The bathroom was on the small side, mostly because the bathtub takes up a lot of the space. But it was as modern and inviting as the rest of the room (and hotel in general).There is free WiFi in the room as well, and the air-conditioning worked perfectly. This could truly work as a home away from home.

They have a pretty good information leaflet in the room; but here are some of my tips as well. There is secure parking available in the next street for EUR 5,8 per day, there is a large SPAR grocery store in the same street and you have never stayed closer to H&M :) And to save you some time: you pay for the parking on the second floor of the building, and you need to walk out on the street to get there.
You can eat a small breakfast in the hotel for EUR 10,5 per person, but in my opinion it was both overpriced and unnecessary when you can so easily eat in your room. The receptionists were all friendly and spoke good English.

We could not have been happier with this hotel, and if you are visiting (or just passing through like us) St.Etienne, this is the only choice for you. It is truly superb!
