“Great for a Pygmy”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 October 2012

Arrival proved hopeful as the lady on the desk was very friendly, however the request for a bath was ignored. Then upon entering my room, I had to climb over the end of the bed to reach the door to the toilet. Then upon inspecting the bathroom, the shower cubicle doors didnt work and popped inwards, and seeing as how the cubicle was smaller than a phone booth, if you turned around your bum turns the tap off, and when you move the doors pop inwards banging you on the head if you are washing your lower body. It was not the cleanest of hotels either. My friend with whom I was travelling said, "never mind hen, it's no as bad as barracks" and that was true, however I never had to pay to stay in barracks when in a pipe band, and you have expectations of both places, this hotel didn't reach any basic ones for a hotel.

Room Tip: do not expect much, then you wont be disappointed

The Hotel Au Spatial is very conveniently located, close to Amiens railway station. I stayed there for 2 nights. The room was basically furnished, but a good size, clean and warm. The breakfast at 6 Euros was generous and tasty. The bed was very comfortable and the hotel was quiet, so I had a couple of good night's sleep.
The town of Amiens is very picturesque and the Cathedral is stunning. Well worth a visit. To summarise, this hotel isn't the best I've ever stayed in, but it certainly isn't the worst either. I thought it was good value for money and I would stay there again.

I stopped in Amiens for a night on my way to Arras to visit the Cathedral and see the town. The Cathedral is stunning, and you should really try to get there when they light up the front to demonstrate its original polychromatic facade. Great places for dinner along the canals in St. Leu. The Hotel Au Spatial was recommended in some guidebook and I should have checked TA first. It had a great location, but was barely acceptable for the night. If I had been travelling with a partner or looking for anything at all romantic it would have been a disaster. It is bare bones and feels like you are in an old youth hostel. However, it was passable, clean and very central.

They have secure parking behind the hotel and it is close to the train station.

This is a very basic hotel. Few TV channels. Very cramped shower. It seemed like a clean room, but then I went looking for something I'd misplaced and I found a load of old cigarette butts and a purse with 10 Brazilian reais in it under the bed. So clean is a relative thing, I guess. The room stank of deodoriser when I arrived and cigarette smoke after that wore off.

Both nights my sleep was extensively interrupted by large noises from upstairs somewhere. Do they have a trampoline up there? A wrestling team? Why does anyone need to move furniture at 3AM? Because of its construction, I believe that this hotel will always be noisy. It is presently in the middle of renovations, however.

The radiator heating never came on in the room, but the room wasn't cold.

I found the staff to be friendly and business like. The location is very central. Amiens is a pleasant city. It's a stretch to give it a two star rating, but given that I've stayed in much worse hotels, it seemed only fair.
