Reviewed 2 June 2017

It's a small citi hotel with, clean and centrally located, few steps from the lake and promenadę. You can have room with square and lake view but can be noisy early morning when streets are being cleaned and businesses opened. The other choice is room with backyard view, not so spectacular but quiet. Rooms are very different in size, with large tv but no air-con. Very cleaned, daily serviced.
Modest but fresh and tasty french breakfasts with coffee made to your preference and home made crepes. You can eat insine or on the terrace with small pond with koi fish.
The staff is frendly and helpfull with always smiling owner/receptionist being a cherry on the cake.
Definitely recommended if you are on a budget but still want to be in the center of town Evian,

Room Tip: If you look for peace and quiet - take backyard view, otherwise - streetview.

I enjoyed my stay at this hotel. The staff are friendly, polite and helpful. The rooms were well kept and very clean. The location is great since it's right on the road where the stores are and not far from the lake.

The staff is really welcoming and nice! We had a very clean room with a fascinating view to the lake! Very comfortable bed. There is a big free parking place behind the hotel. The check-out is till 12 O'clock, what was also very good. We took a breakfast and we didn't regret it. The hotel is on the pedestrian street so you can reach everything you need by foot.
There wasn't a hair dryer and the driving to the parking place can be for someone a little bit difficult, because of the narrow entrances.

Room Tip: We had a great view to the pedestrian street with houses and lake Geneva. It was very beautiful, so...

The rooms were a very good size and very clean - amazing for a 2 star hotel and they were very comfortable. The location was extremely convenient for all that Evian had to offer. As it was just off a main street with lots of shops, french cafes and restaurants. We were slightly worried at first that it would be loud at night because it's right in the middle, but it was very quiet and enjoyable, we all slept very well. On our last morning we had the hotel breakfast and it was delicious and a buffet so we could choose what we liked.

Just as a tip, it was hard to find the car park as had to go around the back street and through an underground car park - would be more helpful to have more instructions, although we called to ask and they were very helpful telling us how to get there.

But I would definitely recommend staying there if you are in Evian, we really enjoyed it!

Room Tip: All the rooms are in a good place, but if you want less of a walk up and down stairs level 3 and 1.

Clean and quiet room on the 5th floor, looking onto back courtyard. Satisfying breakfast with excellent baguette, viennoiseries, local cheese, etc. Courteous and helpful staff. Went the extra mile to try to help.
Wifi a bit spotty, but the whole town seemed to be experiencing problems at the time.
Tres bon sejour. Personnel tres aimable.
