Stayed here as three couples for a family event at the last minute. The staff are the main attribute here and we're superb, late arrivals at midnight we're swiftly given room key and despatched to bed sympathetically with paperwork dealt with next morning. Late departure handled kindly with a room allocated for our collective belongings and last minute changing in... More

This hotel was perfectly adequate but nothing special. Also not a particularly nice location in Annecy but the rooms were ok.....perhaps not as clean as we would have liked but ok, the TV was temperamental but that could have been down to the massive thunderstorm. We did not try the restaurant as the menu was not enticing and the bar... More

For £100+ a night in a place like this I would expect a clean room with a decent bathroom. It felt more like a bail hostel. The staff were friendly enough but it doesn't compensate for the dirtyness and lack of refinement. Disappointing. How do these places stay in business I don't know.

We needed an overnight stop on route across France to the UK. This Hotel is in a pleasant residential location and the staff are friendly and helpful. With regard to the room, it has seen better days (about 25 years ago judging from the state of the furnishing). However if you want to relive the 70's, in a shabby sort... More

but would need a renewal and new decoration to make it more appealing to customers. Our room looked more like a room at a hostel, not a hotel.
