Welcome to Garden Hotel, your Rennes “home away from home.” Garden Hotel aims to make your visit as relaxing and enjoyable as possible, which is why so many guests continue to come back year after year. The charm of the countryside, the charm of the city! Come and enjoy our flowered patio sheltered by its shale walls, a little haven of peace to relax! The establishment was certified EUROPEAN ECOLABEL by AFNOR CERTIFICATION in 2016 for its commitment to the protection of the environment. The Garden Hotel is a small, independent 2-star establishment, which has existed in Rennes for more than 35 years, it is ideally located between the SNCF train station and the historic center, in a quiet street, close to public transport. The St Hélier district is one of the most popular in Rennes: the rue St Hélier offers many small quality shops (food in particular): a mini-market (50 m from the apartments), organic stores, bakers, caterers, cheese makers , butchers ... TNB, cinemas, museums of Fine Arts and Brittany are located within a radius of 200m. The edges of Vilaine are arranged in this district for ballads or jogging for circuits up to 10 km. This district is also richly provided with numerous restaurants and bars for which we can advise you according to your aspirations. Note that we also offer meal trays. The opera house, the town hall square and the Thabor garden are around 500 m away. The Jacobins Convent (convention center), Place des Lices (Saturday morning market) and the cathedral are 15 minutes' walk away. The secure private parking on reservation (12 € / 24H) will allow you to do everything quietly on foot or with 2 bikes that we provide! If you prefer public transport, the central station "République" is 5 minutes on foot (metro and bus). Each room has a flower name which inspired its decoration: daffodil, hydrangea, heather, camellia ... Three categories of rooms are available: classic (the most economical, around 11m2), comfort (12m2 overlooking rue Duhamel) and patio side (approximately 14m2, overlooking the back of the hotel on the patio-queen size bed). We have family rooms and also studios (the Garden Apparts). The hotel has 3 floors accessible by lift. An equipped meeting room (8 people max) is available. A few words about us: After having managed a pancake and Breton specialty manufacturing company in the Rennes region, we changed our job 6 years ago to become independent hoteliers: we first took over the Hotel Garden, located rue JM Duhamel, then created in 2016 the Garden Apparts, rue Joseph Sauveur. We like to welcome our guests so that they feel at home in our only establishment of a human scale (25 rooms at the Garden hotel and 9 studios, the Garden Apparts). My husband is a sports fan (cycling and rugby), I love to cook (which allows us to offer homemade meal trays to our guests). We live in the countryside, have a large orchard, from which I make jams for breakfast, which is made almost entirely of local products. We work with 8 permanent employees to provide all of the hotel services: cleaning and maintenance of the rooms, receptionists, night watchmen. Here, you will have a 24/7 human presence, at your service, who will be delighted to welcome you at the hotel or in the apartments. See you soon at the Garden !

The courtyard garden makes even viewing from inside a breakfast treat, and the petite dejeuner was more than petite. The accommodations were well maintained and comfortable. The location is perfect for exploring both the old city--with its lovely brickwork and timbered architecture--and the nearby botanical gardens and park. There is also an excellent bar just around the corner: Hibou Grand Duc.

Not often you can book a hotel in a very central location and are able to park directly outside overnight for free (1900 - 0900) Hotel is small and rooms average. although a gorgeous modern bathroom, but the service is immaculate and extremely friendly. As a bonus the staff I encountered were fluent in English, certainly more than I am in French ! Only odd thing is the doors are are bit tricky to lock and not intuitive in my opinion. I was in room 15 in the garden at the back of the hotel The best thing for me when I was stupid enough to break a glass at breakfast which took a bit of clearing up as it was possible glass shards had done into the open jam and marmalade etc. But the reaction and understanding from the young guy on duty was phenomenal. This was September 5th at about 7am so I'd like to make sure his manager recognises him for his brilliant customer service !!! I'd highly recommend this place,

We booked adjoining rooms, and were very comfortable, Loved the birdsong in the quiet morning, and the garden area with fish in a tub! Too bad we couldn't stay longer, would have loved to visit the museum across the street. We found good food, along the pleasant boulevard toward the train station.

My wife and adult daughter were in Rennes for the Women's World Cup. The hotel is close to the train station and city centre. It is well looked after and the hosts were very helpful and courteous. The room and bathroom were small by North American standards but it was clean and comfortable. The rooms are named and decorated after individual flowers. The common area and patio are enjoyable. An excellent value.
