The Hotel Marotte is a five star family-run hotel in the heart of Amiens. It is perfectly situated less than a five-minute walk to Amiens Cathedral and all the charming restaurants along the canal. Since the hotel has only twelve rooms, you are likely to encounter family at any time during your stay. The owner, Estelle, is also the general manager, designer, desk clerk, and she personally prepares the breakfast. She’ll likely answer the phone when you make your reservation. Her English is impeccable. She also speaks German, trilingual.
There are many things to like about Estelle. She is warm, welcoming, and intelligent. She is also a perfectionist. Her attention to detail emerges moment by moment in the hotel: the quality of the bed, the luxurious bathroom, the organization of space, the decor inside and out, the breakfast prepared to order. Most of all, you recognize it in her service.
Estelle was born in Amiens and knows virtually everyone and every place in the city and the surrounding countryside. When my wife and I could not find a tour of WWI sites, all sold out, no problem. Estelle had the name and number of an English speaking taxi driver who gave us more than our money’s worth, and at a lower cost than the tours that were already booked.

A taxi for the train station? Again, no problem. Our driver arrived five minutes early in a Mercedes, and carried our bags to the car.
Restaurant recommendations? Just ask.
The Hotel Marotte is a serious hotel with great customer service and as comfortable as a hotel can be. Most of all, it is a family business, focused on quality. From now on when we go to Amiens, we’ll reserve our place in the Hotel Marotte.
