What our customers say
"Great place and even better Staff "
We had a great time in Nantes. The hotel was very convenient for site seeing. The staff here were delightful, they spoke English, smiled and were so friendly and helpful. The room was spotless, maybe the twin beds a bit too close together!! I would recommend this hotel and would go there again.

"nice Hotel close to the city"
a perfect location within walking distance to the city, very nice team, good price/value rate. two things we did not like, the WiFi could be better, the toilet is very high (unsuitable for kids)
"A convenient hotel for one night in Nantes"
The hotel is only 5 minutes walk from the railway station, where the airport bus terminates. There are plenty of places to eat, drink and shop even on a Sunday.
"Best location for the price "
Lovely little hotel with comfortable beds. Breakfast was tasty and food was replenished regularity . Staff were very friendly. Only downside was that the curtains did not fit the window in my room...so pack an eye mask for a good nights sleep
We stayed at The Originals only 1 night. The hotel is very well located, 200 metres from the main Railway station, 50 metres from tram station and 100 metres from the Duchess Anne castle, the most famous landmark of Nantes. The hotel is small with small but clean rooms, friendly staff and a reasonably good breakfast. All in all, worth the money they charge. Will definitely stay here again if we visit Nantes in future and will recommend it to our friends.
"Lovely hotel outside needs a refurbishment"
I very much enjoyed my stay thank you. The room was very comfortable and warm.The staff were very welcoming and helpful and there was a good choice for breakfast.Only areas for improvement are the outside of the building needs painting and the WiFi was very patchy and not very reliable.
"Weekend with my sisters"
Hotel is very good value and in good location. Our receptionist was very friendly and helpful. The room was clean and comfortable. The shower is not draining quickly enough - may need to be looked at - room 109. Breakfast area a bit crowded but not too much of a problem
