Two things stand out in my mind regarding the Best Western Gare Saint-Jean, the smallness of the bedroom and the friendliness and helpfulness of the staff. The bedroom was unquestionably small. The wardrobe was adequate but there was a distinct lack of shelves, drawers in which to put clothes. The bathroom was fine, if again a little small. However none...

We were in a group of 24 and staying at the hotel for the bank holiday weekend. The location worked well for travel from the airport and a short tram ride or walk into the main town. The surrounding area isn't great at night and we made sure that no one walked home on their own. Okay during the day....

We had rooms 106 & 108 for a 4 night stay. The Hotel is a short walking distance from the station and next to the Ibis with the green sign. When leaving the station turn right and keep to the right. It is well located for the City Centre and about 15/20 mins walk along the river or a short...

We've stayed here on two separate occasions. The hotel is conveniently close to Gare St Jean which considering our train was an hour late on both occasions proved a decided plus. Reception is very friendly and though a limited choice, the evening meal options were perfectly adequate. Breakfast is well worth the extra and the hotel's private garage is an...

We spent three nights here on a Brittany Ferries holiday. Our sat Nav took us to an industrial area where there were several prostitutes. Not a great start !! Found the hotel and were able to park outside for free for the first night. Next night, parked in near by supermarket car park, costing 23e for 24 hours and on...

Great location close to the train station and Metro line which takes you to the heart of Boudreaux. Comfortable room a little smaller than expected, and irt faced the railroad tracks. The staff is friendly and helpful, and made us feel welcome.

Nice hotel in a good location, service is super friendly and the lobby is quite nice. Rooms are ultra small so beware, bathroom is so small that you can barely fit in the shower. Similar to a Japanese hotel in size. Lobby staff is really helpful and friendly. Location is great next to the train station. Parking is available in...

I booked this hotel primarily for it's ideal location, adjacent to the main railway station, tram route into the city and airport express coach service. The hotel rooms are undergoing improvements for the next couple of months but the work is very unobtrusive. Work is currently also proceeding at night in the main railway station 100 metres away - not...

I had a excellent experience in this hotel. All the members of the staff were very nice and helpful, the room was clean, agreable and comfortable. Make sure to take the breakfast, the buffet there is amazing, and most of the cakes are homemade. Delicious

Just by station and airport bus stop. Tram stop nearby. Staff were very helpful. Room was small double. Very clean, but little storage for clothes. Can be noisy at night but they provide ear plugs. Tea making in room with espresso machine. Breakfast was 14 euros and we thought worth it.
