Back to my old stamping ground, just a four day break. As good as ever. Managed to leave my continental adapter at home - no problem, voila, a drawer full of them. On 5th floor made me reliant on lift, and bathroom was small / bijou. Managed to misplace my card, oops!! Didn't change all my English money, beware, banks...

Pleasant little hotel (rather old-fashioned French Town hotel without restaurant) but perfectly situated for the walled town and the ferry port. Good value for the location but the room was very small (shower large!!) and the toilet not for the larger person. Miniscule comes to mind! The room took some getting in to as the lock on the door was...

Fabulous location within the walls. Bright clean hotel with friendly staff. Both staff spoke very good English but equally humoured us when we practiced our French. Lock up garage a massive bonus and very reasonable. Perfectly acceptable breakfast...impressive for small hotel. WiFi in reception area only, not in rooms. Door locks VERY difficult to open. This would be the difference...

We wanted rooms for 3 adults for one night, short notice, & this hotel had availability. We had cabin 3, which consisted of 1 twin room with shower & bath, and 1 double with shower & seperate toilet. The rooms were quite basic, but adequate, but could've been better thought out. The toilet in the double room was tiny &...

While on a trip to Guernsey to visit my boyfriend, he surprised me with a quick trip to St Malo and this hotel! On location alone, this hotel is fantastic. It is right in the middle of the Intra-Muros and was perfectly convenient for exploring the city, especially after wandering at night watching street performances and quite literally stumbling into...

The hotel is well located within the walls of the city. The friendly staff provides good advice as to where to go and how to get there. The only downside was that the shower was leaking and it was not fixed during our stay off one night.

Situated in the middle of the old town. Had a room on the top floor which was very hot and the windows only open a little I think due to safety considerations. There is a small lift , but it is a small hotel and I was always able to access the lift. Room was fine. Saint-Malo itself, has become...

An excellent hotel in an excellent location inside the walls of the old fort. Staff were very helpful and room was clean and nice with a lovely view over the square. Wifi works well. There is parking overground which is secure and about 10 meters from the property. Try to book a space for your stay. It's €18 per day...

Nice hotel for an overnight stay on my own, in the old town within easy walking distance of the ferry terminal. Room was clean and comfortable. Staff very friendly and spoke good english. Wi Fi was excellent in the public area but non existent in my room. My main 'moan' is that the towels in my room were very old...
