A location at the heart of Reims. A great neighbourhood for taking a stroll. A great brasserie for eating. Welcome to Eric Dujourd'hui's hotel.
"To make your stay as pleasant as possible."
Eric has always been a restaurateur so when he takes over The Originals City, Hotel Le Bristol, Reims in 2017, he knows that this 3 star hotel's 2 main assets are: its location in the city-centre, directly overlooking the Erlon square - one of the principal pedestrian streets in the Champagne's capital - and its restaurant, L'Edito, a quality brasserie whose kitchen is overseen by a master-restaurateur. This hotel in Reims stands up well with its beautiful 19th façade and its wrought iron balconies with delicate arabesques. It offers 40 rooms spread over 5 floors, some overlooking the pedestrian street, others a rear building. Surrounded by warm colours and champagne bottles, the welcoming team proves to be friendly, energetic and attentive 24/7.
The 3-star The Originals City, Hotel Le Bristol, Reims counts 40 rooms, including one very spacious one located under the rooftop and with a kitchen corner. Very well equipped, these rooms are comfortable and functional. As for the decoration, it varies, with rooms that have a very contemporary atmosphere, some reduced to the strict minimum while others are a mixture of various epochs creating an atypical ambiance with an old-fashioned charm.
Looking for places to eat in Reims? Settle down amidst typewriters, rotary machines, books and old printing presses. Welcome to L'Edito's atypical décor, the brasserie adjacent to The Originals City, Hotel Le Bristol, Reims where you will enjoy your breakfast buffet and why not, your lunches and/or dinners. Here, the ambiance is friendly and swirling. You wish to dine outdoors? Have a seat on the terrace and enjoy the bustle of the pedestrian street while making your selection from the large menu that goes from pizza and burgers to wok dishes and baked potatoes.
For discovering Reims and its main points of interest, leave your car at the parking (the hotel has a partnership with the Champagne Parc Auto public parking nearby). It will prove more useful for travelling along the roads while exploring the Champagne region.
REIMSReims, it's 2,000 years of history; 25 kings of France crowned in its cathedral, a wonder of Gothic art; 250 km of cellars and tunnels exclusively dedicated to champagne; 265 hectares of green spaces spread throughout the city; 2 UNESCO heritage listings, the first in 1991 for its cathedral, the Tau palace and the ancient Saint-Rémi Abbey, the second in 2015 for its Champagne Hillsides, Maisons and Cellars. Without forgetting the architectural and cultural heritage gems like the Foujita chapel, the Opera, the royal square, etc.
THINGS TO SEE NEARBYChampagne tourist roads, between Reims and Epernay, offer beautiful views of the vineyards throughout the year. Visit the Verzenay lighthouse, the small local producers or discover the Faux de Verzy (a type of twisted beech tree unique in Europe) in the Montagne de Reims Regional Natural Park. Let yourself be carried away by boat to discover Châlons-en-Champagne. And loose yourself in the narrow streets of Hautvillers, a typical village of the region where a certain Dom Pérignon perfected the method that would transform Champagne into the king of wines.
What our customers say
I had a great time during my stay. The beds were very comfortable and the staff is helpful and friendly. Wi-Fi is top best connection I had in an hotel so far
"I was disappointed"
The bedroom was VERY small and dark. Either of us could have had an accident banging head or legs against furniture / TV. I appreciate that city rooms can be smaller - but this was like a 1/2 star place. ( I have had 30 yrs of hotels in France when travelling ) I have never stayed in a 3 star with such a room - maybe I was unlucky with it - avoid 107. I was surprised at no English speaking channel on Tv - it is a touristy area. Breakfast coffee from machine was tepid.
The room was in very bad shape: wallpaper and paint coming off, the walls and carpet were full stains, doors were broken and with holes, door to the bathroom could not be closed, showerhead was placed too low so impossible to have a proper shower, no hot water, the window allowed to light as a wall was placed directly in front of the window within approximately 1,5 meters. Airconditioning was directly outside our window so it was really noisy if we opened the window.
"Super hotel at a super location"
Goed verzorgd hotel midden in zeer gezellig uitgaansgebied met restaurants, winkels en bezienswaardigheden. Zeer vriendelijk personeel. Uitgebreid ontbijt. Uitstekende prijs- kwaliteit verhouding.
unfortunately, no shampoo at my room at all without being notified is a bit of a shame. Waiting too long for somebody to ask for menu, so we left after 15 mins to brasserie furteron. Also the hand gloves are redicilous at breakfast policies.
"Not so good as all"
I only stayed 1 night, of which I had only slept little, due to having to walk all the stairs with aching knees.Contacted front desk in the morning, that person said lift was ok, it wasn't. so back down from the 4th floor. After breakfast, where at 9 am even many things were no longer available, I let them know that I wanted to go home and I checked out. now i'm still waiting to contact you for a solution. booking.com informed me of this. why does it take so long?
"Amazing Hotel with Friendly Staff"
My family and I traveled all over France this August and this hotel shined brighter than all the other hotels we stayed in. The reception was accommodating, spoke perfect English and were ready to help in any way they could. The restaurant had nice food for reasonable prices and the breakfast was great. Also, during Covid-19, the entire staff was careful about always wearing their mask and keeping their distance.
