A city centre location, an attentive team, the freedom of an apartment. Welcome to Stéphanie Boyer’s hotel in Troyes, France.
“Our greatest satisfaction is welcoming you back!”
After studying the hotel industry, Stéphanie enjoyed a successful career before taking up the hotel manager position in 2015. At the helm of the KOSY Appart’hôtels Troyes – City & Park, a hotel with 110 practical studios, the young Stéphanie and her team do their very best to make their guests’ stays, over an evening, weekend, week or more, as pleasant as possible. “I started out with the hospitality trade, I know the expectations well!”, she says. For her, friendliness, cleanliness and availability all form part of a high-quality service. The easy access, nearby car park and historic centre of Troyes just a stone’s throw away are the other draws often highlighted by regulars who love to return to the cosy ambiance on their visits to Troyes.
From 20 m2 studios to 34 m2 spaces, the KOSY Appart’hôtels Troyes-City & Park’s 110 apartments have something for everyone. Fully equipped (Wi-Fi, etc.) and practical, every rooms come with a kitchenette. They’re also bright and peaceful. Decor wise, these apartments are gradually abandoning their monochrome, monastic style for a warmer and more contemporary ambiance.
If you don’t want to make breakfast in your apartment, the KOSY Appart’hôtels Troyes – City & Park serves a continental buffet in the dining room with hot and cold drinks, pastries, cereal, dairy products, etc. There’s no restaurant but the city centre location offers a host of options with something for everyone (restaurants and grocery stores).
You’ll need a car to visit Troyes’ contemporary sights but a comfortable pair of shoes are all you need to take in the beauty of historic Troyes as you wander its lanes. As luck would have it, the KOSY Appart’hôtels Troyes-City & Park is just a stone’s throw away!
It took more than 400 years to build the 114-metre-long and 30-metre-high cathedral. The jewel in the Troyes crown, it’s a spectacular example of Gothic style and its evolution over the decades. Visitors admire the quality of the sculptures, the artwork and the tapestries, paying special attention to the classified stained glass windows spanning an area of 1,500 m2.
A little museum with a lot of originality. Those in search of original collections mustn’t miss the Apothecary with its high walls covered in painted wooden boxes, earthenware, mortars and other medical paraphernalia. Immerse yourself in an 18th-century pharmacy with remedies worthy of one of Harry Potter’s potions classes (expect dragon’s blood and mugwort)!
Troyes’ historic quarter owes its name to its “champagne cork” shape. Exploring its old cobbled lanes, multicoloured timber-framed houses and elegant sculpted facades takes you on a journey through time. History buffs will remember that it is here, in these medieval lanes with evocative names (Black Lion Hotel, Cat Lane, Gold Mortar Courtyard, etc.), that the Order of the Knights Templar was created in the 13th century and that Joan of Arc freed the city from the English in the 15th century.
With two major factory outlet hubs, Troyes is the biggest European centre of its kind. Dating back to the 1960s, the factory outlet concept now draws almost two million visitors a year who come to enjoy the rock-bottom prices. On your marks, get ready, “shop”!
