My wife and I have stayed at "les frangins" at least once a year for about 15 years. This hotel is personally managed by two brothers who are very welcoming and are readily accessible in the event of any query or problem. The staff are generally friendly and helpful. Hotel "les frangins" is centrally located in St Omer and provides perfectly acceptable accommodation at reasonable cost. The hotel does not have a car park but there is a public car park very close by. There are also some lock-up garages which may be available for hire.
The rooms are located on three floors and there is a lift. Rooms are standard, clean, adequately furnished and have private bathroom or shower and toilet facilities. Rooms facing on to rue Carnot are more exposed to noise from the street in the late evenings than are those on the other side of the hotel.
The hotel has a bar with a good selection of beers (try the strong, dark draught 'Palten') and wines and there is a restaurant, though it does not open on Friday evening or Sunday evening. This is not a great problem as the hotel is conveniently close to the centre of St Omer where there are several restaurants within a few minutes walk.
One important thing to be aware of is that the reception desk is not usually staffed on Sunday evenings or late in evenings during the week. If you go out for the evening make sure you have the access code to the hotel door so that you can get back in. The system works well but you do have to be aware of it so you do not get caught out.
In brief, “les frangins” provides unpretentious accommodation at reasonable cost. If you require air conditioning, room service and other frills of a large hotel this is probably not the place for you – but for a good many years we have found it suits us very well!
