“good comfortable hotel”
Reviewed 21 May 2014

Stayed here for 4 nights as part of a tour. This hotel is very conveniently located within easy walking distance of both the historic squares and opposite the railway station. We had a room facing the station and initially thought that the train noise might be a problem but after the first couple of trains we hardly noticed it. The bed was king size and the bathroom had all the necessary amenities with no frills. Added bonus of this hotel was the tea/coffee making facilities in the room.
Breakfast was the usual continental mix of fruit, breads, ham and cheese with a great electronic orange juicer. The staff were all friendly and helpful with a good knowledge of English to help you out if you got stuck in French!

I stayed at this Holiday Inn Express on the recommendation of our guide when visiting the Somme Battlefields over a weekend in May. The hotel is ideally located near the train station, about tem minutes walk from the main square in Arras. There is generous parking underneath for a reasonable 10 euros a day giving direct access to the hotel.

The hotel was decorated to the usual standard expected of Holiday Inn and the staff were all excellent, spoke some English and were extremely helpful. The hotel had a nice little bar attached to reception where you could relax with a cold beer after a long day visiting the battlefields.

The room was very comfortable with a good ventilation and air conditioning. The beds were extremely comfortable and the bathroom was clean and well organised. The shower was excellent and hot. The hotel offered free wifi which was very efficient and always allowed a good connection.

The breakfast was continental but plentiful. The coffee and tea came from a machine which only provided half a cup but when you tried to put in more the machine overflowed but other than this it was good quality.

The hotel was ideally placed for touring the Somme battlefields being close to the centre but within easy access of the main roads out of Arras. All in all a good place to base oneself for such a trip.

Room Tip: Rooms at the back are less noisy. If you stay on the front, don't open the window as the noise o...

We stayed here for one Friday night, and were pleased with our choice. The staff were very friendly and helpful (happily giving more milk and tea bags, for example).The rooms were very clean, comfortable and functional, if a little uninspired.

Breakfast was sound - nothing mind-blowing, but lots of choice and no shortage of food and drink. Parking under the hotel was convenient and - at €10.80 for the night, not badly priced.

Overall, a nice place to stay - and reasonable value at around €85 per room per night.

An excellent example of this franchise chain. The staff all speak English, and are very helpful and friendly. The rooms are comfortable and clean. The position of this hotel near the railway station not far from the centre of Arras, with a car park, makes this a good choice

Not for the first time have I had occasion to feel very satisfied with the HI Express product. We had just spent four nights at the '4 Star' Accor Mecure in Beaune - poky room, tired product. Arriving at the HI Express in Arras we were welcomed by a light, airy, spacious double room - spotless. Great breakfast too. Cheerful staff. Extremely well situated for city sights. The place was heaving with people - deservedly so.

Stayed 2 nights in a family room - put up bed for the teenager which meant not too much room but adequate as not spending much time in there. Even though our room looked out over the road and the train station noise wasn't a problem. Easy to get to even though it was in the middle of the town and with carpark under the hotel parking wasn't a problem - 10.50euro a night not too bad. All staff spoke good English. Breakfast spread was very good - food fresh and serving areas and table kept very clean. Bars and restaurants within easy walking distance - either around the small square next to the station just outside the hotel door or slightly further but probably only 5 mins at most around the large square with views of the town hall/ church.

Three essential things worked well in this hotel, the aircon cooled the room, the bathroom and shower were in good order and the bed was comfortable. The breakfast had fruit and cold meat and cheese but no bacon. The gym was very hot. Ask for a non
smoking room as they may give you also a smoking one if you are not specific
