Hotel Saint-Michel
Ranked #16 of 16 Hotels in Mont-Saint-Michel
Reviewed 29 May 2015

I had booked this hotel because everything else was already booked so had no choice.
Reading the reviews I was ready for a bad experience but sleeping ON mont Saint Michel was something I had done before and I was taking 2 friends to share the experience, the magic of it at night.
1) when I called all my questions were answered
2) you do not find the place to get your keys only if you can't read the document that goes with the reservation, everything is written very clearly.
3) when you arrive, just after the gate you have the tourist information center that if you are ignorant will answer all your questions and provide you with a map
4) the staff was very nice and gave us the keys, I had booked 2 rooms, it was easy
5)it is REALLY easy to find if you follow the instructions
6)it is true that going down the steps you have the ventilation from the restaurant but you want to sleep on the Mont, it is medieval, it is just another very small world, one could just as well criticize the Mont for lack of light or small staircases, the best for you then is to stay home but here you want MEDIEVAL, the real thing!
7)the rooms: basic but probably much better than the monks room, the Mont is also an experience of a monastery, it looks like a VERY nice cell, what is necessary was there and it was clean, the sheets were spotless, the bathroom was basic but you did not have to share one like the monks did!!!
8)no WIFI, what a joy but if you could not do without the rest of the world, they offer FREE WIFI in the lobby of the hotel where you get your keys and it works well too.
9) it was VERY quiet
10)we needed to check out early, the girl at the reception called the bus for us and it was really very simple and fast
My best experience on the Mont, it was my 3d time.

First of all this is not a hotel as you would know it.
You collect a key from another establishment,k enter through a door down a few steps off the Main Street, and you enter a passage. Our room was down the steps and the whole place is seriously unclean. The stair carpet is mouldy, and the staircase handrail had a message written in the dust.
The room itself was a large cupboard with a view across some derelict outbuildings to the ramparts, so you could wave to other tourists having a better time than you.
The ensuing shower was a bit small, but the area was quite clean, to be fair.
Brakfeat, included in the price was serves at the cafe next door, which did have views across the sands to the mainland.
I had booked early and got a "deal" at 112 euros for the night, but the going rate seemed to be about 178, I think.
Far better to avoid the island for a hotel, and stay somewhere on the mainland.

A hideous hotel - overpriced yet extremely grim, this is NOT to be recommended to anyone other than backpackers. No aircon, no wifi and no character or style whatsoever, Le St Michel is a vile place and easily the worst hotel I've been in ever. A prison-like atmosphere amid tiny rooms with no positives at all, there is a reason there are so many bad reviews. AVOID!

My husband and I stayed at Hotel Saint Michel during a short, overnight trip to the island. For anyone planning a visit to Mont-Saint-Michel, I highly recommend that you stay right on the island. You can wander the island in peace during the evenings/nights and early mornings while all the bustling tourists are away. It's truly magical.

We chose Hotel Saint Michel simply because it was affordable and available. We didn't really know what to expect. It turned out to be an absolute delight. You have to check-in at Hotel Terraces Poulard, which is just a quick one-minute walk away. Everyone at the check-in desk was incredibly friendly and helpful. They were happy to speak both English and French.

Our actual room was perfectly clean and comfortable. We had a big window with a lovely view of the interior rampart. The best part was that the hotel itself is quite hidden and secluded, which seems impossible on such a small island. But we had privacy and solitude from all of the hubbub outside. It was a much-needed space to decompress. The walls are thick, and it felt like we were in a vault. I've never slept so soundly!

Although Hotel Saint Michel does not offer wifi, you are welcome to use the wifi for free at Terraces Poulard. They have a cozy lobby with comfy chairs. So if you absolutely have to check your email, then that's not a problem. The staff was really accommodating!

I recommend staying a night or two at the Hotel Le Mont Saint Michel. The hotel is inexpensive, yet within the walls of the abby. The guest services are found near the entry to the abby, up an alley way on your left as you walk up the main street. You are staying in a historic building, converted to hotel rooms. The rooms are basic. The bath is small. I am an average size person with good balance, the shower is difficult to get in/out of.

Parking for hotel is about 2 miles away. The hotel will provide a code to enter the parking lot. The cost is minimal. From the parking, throught the small touwn the hotel provides a shuttle. I found one of the drivers to be absolutley abnoxious. He would not stop to pick me up during a rain storm. This was on two attempts to flag him down!!!! I took the alternate shuttle which only goes half way to the abby, and walked the rest. I spoke with the hotel mgr; but, doubt anything happened to the incompetent driver.

The restaurant in the abby and in the town outside are great! I had no problem finding good, in-expensive food.

The addy provide a few museums, I only went into one and a tour of the Abby itself. The views are spectacular.

The average rating is due to the average room. The Abby is above average place to visit.
