  • 8.0.Very good

    Well positioned and quiet.

    The location of the hotel is perfect. It is situated in a quiet street alongside the Botanical Gardens, very near the train station and tram stop with easy access by transport or on foot to all Nantes has to offer. The parking for the hotel is a payable extra. The renovation of this former church to hotel is well done. There are photos displayed in the hotel which record the work. Evidence of the church is still to be seen inside the hotel. As for the exterior, little has changed. We had a warm and helpful welcome. Our room was comfortable, warm and quiet, but smaller than we had hoped for. We were surprised to have paper cups for tea or coffee in our room. We cannot comment on the breakfast as at an additional 38euros per couple, we thought it expensive.

  • 8.0.Very good

    The location is very convenient as it is close to the railway station and to the city center. On the other hand the spa which can be taken for a short time only is very expensive which is different from other hotels.

    The room was clean and the staff were helpful and friendly. We were offered an upgraded room for our last night. It was a really nice treat. Speaking of treats we loved the treats left in our room each day. Hotel is conveniently located to train station and restaurants.

    Modern comforts in a renovated old church

    We thought it would be cool to stay in an old church. It was also very close to the train station which was convenient. The main lobby was really beautiful, retaining elements of the church with the windows and the staff very friendly and welcoming. Our room was very clean and comfortable but very little of the church was noticeable in it except maybe the window. I think leaving some of the walls bare would have added to the charm. Our room didn't look anything like the photo.

  • 10.0.Exceptional

    It is the coolest hotel in Nantes, and perhaps the coolest hotel we have ever stated in -- it is a former Chapel with really good contemporary interior design. The staff is extraordinarily kind too.

  • 6.0.Good

    The setting inside and stained glass details were unique. In the room, it wasn’t clear what was complimentary or not and the A/C didn’t get cold enough.

    Hotel with tiny by interesting rooms

    A church that is converted to a hotel. The rooms are interesting because of the church windows in each room. However, the rooms are real tiny (no room even for a small desk). The tiny bathroom is separated from the room with a set of bars. The beds are marginally acceptable for comfort. Otherwise, the rooms are clean. The location of the hotel is good -- right across from a park that opens to the center of the city on the other side.
