    The stuff is very helpful and nice. The guy at the reception recommended us nice places to eat. There is a secured parking right behind the building and ski slopes are 5 min drive from the hotel. Toys and games are available for children.

    As usual in France: The Bed is quite small: Short (1.9 m) and narrow (1.6m). Not suitable for a northern european couple. When you are 1.9m or more, you will need the whole bed...

    Good breakfast, clean, nice and large room. Very friendly personnel. Parking behind the hotel.

    Nothing comes to mind.

    This was our second stay at this hotel; we were in Gerardmer a year ago and enjoyed the hotel so much that we wanted to stay there again. The hotel is a "grand dame", with lots of history and has been maintained well. Breakfast was very good. Our room faced the street but it was quiet.

    Perfect stay - family with small child

    • Family Room
    • Stayed 3 nights

    Our holiday would have been perfect, if it hadn't rained for the whole time. :((( The hotel is perfect, though.

    Perfect location, close to city center. Supermarkets, pubs, restaurants are all within walking distance, the shuttle bus stop is also close ( the shuttle bus to the ski slopes is in operation on weekends and ski holidays). The buiding has a history but it is also nicely renovated (new windows keep in the heat and keep out the noise). Breakfast is super delicious and is a lot. Staff is very kind and attentive, they speak at least French, English and German. The family room is perfect with children, they have their own space. Heating works perfectly. Only difficulty is that the toilet and the bathroom are at the two separate ends of the apartment. You have to get accustomed to it, but for some, it may even be beneficial. There is a parking lot behind the hotel.

    Bar closing at 9.00 was a pain, and breakfast was fine but not as extensive as some are.

    For breakfast, the food choices could be improved a bit. For the last floor, an elevator would really be needed, especially if you are tired after skiing or carrying a child in your arms :-)

    The interior of the hotel is impressive.
    • Leisure trip
    • Couple

    We got a room on the last floor, and there is no elevator (for some people it could be a problem). The room itself needs some renovation (e.g., a shower sink was partially blocked). There is no WC door, only some sort of curtain (non sound-proof), but perhaps that's typical :) . The parking is secure, but a bit small - may be a problem for large vehicles.

    The interior of the hotel is impressive. We especially liked photos with aeroplane pictures from 1910-20s. Even more impressive is a view from the balcony of the top floor. The hotel is located 2 minutes of walk from the central street and 5 minutes from the lake.

    Only slight issue was the slight smell of stale cigarette smoke in the hotel corridor, presumably from one of the other guests smoking somewhere in the hotel.

    Gerardmer is a perfect location or a cycling break in the Vosges. The room was ideal, and we were able to store the bikes safely overnight.

    Bar shut at 9pm. Given piece of paper with code number for car park on arrival. But did not realise it was also to be used to access hotel. Came back after meal at 10.30 but was locked out! Doors shut. No staff in building. Luckily found number to ring who gave us number! But after 20 mins of panic!!!
