Stayed here with a group of friends. It was a last minute booking as Hotel in centre of Annecy cancelled our booking after a dispute with booking.com. The staff were extremely friendly and helpful. The rooms were very clean and roomy. We ate in the hotel first night and food was OK (better than some restaurants in Lake Annecy). Breakfasts...

I feel like we ended up in a seedy, creepy hotel. How could this hotel get ANY good reviews is beyond me. The rooms are old and uncomfortable. The bathtub had black mold, the toilet seat is cracked and the sink is clogged. Right outside the only (small) window are lying dozens of cigarette butts thrown carelessly by previous occupants....

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...

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...

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...
