A central location in Grenoble. A friendly and comfortable establishment. Welcome to Stéphane and Carole Bonnet's hotel.
“Meeting new guests, encouraging them to come back and always guaranteeing their satisfaction.”
It’s a nice hotel with an old and intricate façade, a bit lost among the large modern buildings around it. A sign of a not-so-distant past when the first cars of European tourists would stop at Grenoble’s ‘Select Pension’ lined with trees. Today, The Originals City, Hotel Gambetta, Grenoble is a charming 3-star hotel with 45 rooms, managed by a passionate couple. The hotel adventure began in 2007 for Stéphane and Carole. “We wanted a new career path after spending several years working in real estate and mass retail.” A new path that they wanted to experience as a couple based on a love of sharing and meeting people. “What’s great about this work is that it never gets boring. The variety of the tasks, and especially the contact with guests coming from different backgrounds.” As it used to be, as it will be tomorrow.

What our customers say
Very helpful staff, terrific location. Room quite comfortable although it became a little stuffy with the warm weather and the aircon seemed to struggle. (A minor inconvenience). Food was very nice and reflecting it’s age and style, the hotel had a lovely almost nostalgic atmosphere. Good value.
