    WIFI was difficult to connect to, and way too slow for the effort. Driving to the location was not straightforward since the hotel is in a pedestrian zone.

    Location in the city is excellent, Shower was perfect, and the bed was comfortable.

    Parking - was a nightmare Was over charged by the night porter for room - this was rectified without any issues

    Can’t fault the hotel, the staff was friendly and helpful, I was only there for one night traveling back from work, I upgraded to get a nice view of the fountain, the only issues I had was driving to it, which was a nightmare- I stopped and parked as close as possible then was given directions from Receptionist to Bring car closer - the entry to the hotels car park was extremely tight- and i defo wouldn’t of brought my personal car through it!!

    Parking was a nightmare, and i strongly recommend not to come with a car. it is tricky, with special access codes etc. also the room was viewing an inner court with no special views which was a little disappointing. last thing, they could have added a little more attention and small details to make it more up to its 4 stars level, like other hotels do, it was pretty basic in term of amenities and other additional stuff in the room.

    Location was top. staff were very nice and helpful, and went beyond their duty, including riding the car with us in order to settle the nightmarish parking issue. we highly appreciated this ! what else? breakfast nice, room had a reasonable size and a good shower, very clean and modern. design a little cold and impersonal but facility is of good quality. we had the possibility to dine within a walking distance in very nice restaurants, including the famous la Cigale. all in all we enjoyed our stay.

    This is a minor comment about the reception service, which needs to be taken in the context that they were very friendly and pleasant, and tried to be helpful, but we asked if they could identify a restaurant nearby which could cater for a vegetarian and after 90 minutes they came back to us to say that they hadn't been able to and our best bet was to wander around and check out menus. Not very helpful and we'd done that the day before with limited success. Maybe they could keep a list of 4 or 5 restaurants nearby that serve some vegetarian options.

    Location could not have been better, it is very central with superb architecture all around. The hotel itself has a spectacular entrance. Our room was modern, spacious and airy. The beds were very comfortable. We had everything we needed in the room. There is a friendly if fairly small bar which serves a very good selection of local wines among other things.

    Room was very small and had a bad lay out. Toilet with no basin in one part of the room and bathroom at the other side. Lost of place misused and not a proper cupboard to put your stuff. On Sunday night ( do 't know if it is every night the same) , the person at the reception deals with the arrivals the problems in the rooms and the bar!... It seems to be a lot for a single person. We waited 15 min at the bar and she did her best. The fitness room is just a joke! It is absolutely ridiculous. Once again far to small badly organised etc. For me the score given to this place on booking.com does not reflect the reality.

    Location in the center of the city. Nice building, récent renovations. Very good insulation for the noise.

    I contacted hotel through Booking.com to ask about parking, they never replied, so I just parked in a car park nearby. Upon arrival in Nantes, I realize first of all that hotel is not accessible directly by car (hotel front is on pedestrian-only street) and secondly they have their own private and FREE parking behind the hotel (turns out it's first-come first-served and was full anyways when I arrived). Hotel never informed me that front doors close at midnight and have to push a button and wait for someone to come open up door for you to get back in. Also, it was 36C day I was in Nantes, no A/C in lobby.

    Modern room. Very pleasant and friendly front desk staff. No carpet in room. Rooms in the front side of the hotel have view of beautiful Place Graslin.

    The toilet was separate on the other side of the room to the bathroom, this would be a good idea generally but there was no wash hand basin in the WC !! so you had to go back to the bathroom to wash your hands.

    To get to the hotel, which is in a pedestrian area, was difficult as there is only really one possible entry point which is far from obvious and blocked by barriers which need a pass code to open up. There was no pre-information about this.

    No previous advice to say we needed an access reference for the security barrier to gain access with the car to this hotel because of it location in the old city centre

    The location for the centre of Nantes was excellent.

    Slightly alarmed having to get through the road barriers which control the pedestrianized area...however in reality it was easy

    lovely staff, really great location, lovely decor through out. We traveled with our two rescue dogs who were made totally welcome. The 'dog friendly' room was great, in the roof of the old building so full of character.

    The hotel lobby has a real grand glamour and the location of the hotel is great for the local restaurants and shops. We were there one night prior to flying home and it was perfect.

    My room was in a fantastic location but there was a lot of noise from pedestrians in the square at night, with the windows open. (Not traffic noise though.) Once closed, it was peaceful. :-)

    Lovely contemporary room overlooking the square in a fantastic location. The staff were very friendly and welcoming (though spoke little English).

    Prepare for a bit of a hassle if you're coming by car, as you'll need to contact the hotel (more than once in our case) to receive a special code in order to enter the pedestrian area and carefully make your way to the hotel parking

    Great location in a pedestrian area, comfortable room, amazing breakfast selection and quality

    New and very stylish with free parking places outside. Extremely helpfull english-speaking personal. Small complements in the room that make it almost 5-stars hotel
