The location, the view, the freedom of a serviced apartment overlooking Nancy. Welcome to Gabriel Vicherat’s hotel in Nancy, France.
“A focus on hospitality and attention to the smallest detail to ensure guests enjoy a wonderful stay.”
Finding the KOSY Nancy-Cœur de Ville couldn't be easier. “Simply look up,” smiles Gabriel Vicherat, the Hotel Manager. Sitting just opposite Nancy-Ville station, this three-star establishment extends across 7 of the 28 floors in the highest tower in the Dukes of Lorraine capital. The Thiers Tower has been the controversial symbol of modern-day Nancy since 1975. Heading up the establishment for several years, David knows everything it has to offer: “firstly, the view, the peace and quiet and, most importantly, our concept: 105 equipped studios from 22 to 45 m2 with the freedom of an apartment and hotel service.” The perfect spot with something for everyone, whether your stay is a short, medium or long one.
From the 22 m2 studio to the 45 m2 two-room apartment, the 105 furnished apartments at the KOSY Nancy-Cœur de Ville boast elevated views over the Dukes of Lorraine city. Simple, bright, comfortable and quiet, this accommodation is fully equipped (air conditioning and Wi-Fi) and boasts a very practical kitchenette. Decor wise, these apartments are gradually transforming, abandoning their “period” style for a distinctly contemporary ambiance.
If you don't want to make breakfast in your apartment, the KOSY Nancy-Cœur de Ville has a brand-new dining area. In an understated ambiance with splashes of lively red on white walls, awaken your taste buds with a buffet of pastries, cakes, dairy products, fruit, and local and organic delights. The hotel doesn’t offer a restaurant but the nearby station and city centre boast a wide array of options to enjoy seated or as a takeaway.
With a perfect location a stone’s throw from the centre of Nancy, the KOSY Nancy-Cœur de Ville is the ideal starting point to explore the city of King Stanislas. The nearby station is also a great opportunity to explore all the beauty that Lorraine has to offer.
Created in 1751 by the King of Poland and the Duke of Lorraine, Stanislas I, the famous Nancy square pays tribute to Louis XV, dazzling all those who pass through. This is especially true of its uber-famous gilded railings which earned Nancy its nickname, the Golden Gate City. And that’s not the only attraction in the square, around which sit the town hall, the fine arts museum, the Pavillon Jacquet and the city opera house.
Welcome to the “Art Nouveau” zone! Originating in the late 19th century, this curvaceous, voluminous and curled art drew its inspiration from the wonders of nature. Created in 1901, the Nancy School is entirely dedicated to this iconic movement. In the atmosphere of a Belle Époque house, the museum now displays an exceptional collection of decorative art by Nancy’s most esteemed artists: Gallé, Majorelle, Daum, Prouvé and more.
The city’s green lung or Pep’, as it’s known to the locals, boasts 21 ha of tree-lined spaces, home to a stunning rose garden, an animal zone, a mini golf course, a play area, a puppet theatre, a selection of eating areas and numerous playing fields. The park opened in 1835 and has since been a haven for walkers, joggers and pushchairs!
Nancy and its region are home to around 20 sweets, bites, cakes and desserts alone, all tied up in its history and traditions, notably macarons, madeleines, mirabelle plums and Bergamot sweets. And let’s not forget the famous quiche or the rum baba whose gooey recipe was dreamt up by King Stanislas’ cook in the 18th century to soothe an old man’s damaged teeth.
