Explore Hotel

On the edge of the Ardennes forest, in front of the HST station of Charleville Mezieres, the city where Arthur Rimbaud was born, lived and wrote the major part of his works, the BEST WESTERN Le Dormeur du Val is an outstanding hotel. In this place, you will find no reference, no standard. The rhymes lean on the walls of red brick, the steel structure and the raw parquets. The place is a crossed tribute to Camille Didier, who launched the magazine, L Usine Nouvelle at the beginning of the 20th century in this industrial building of 1000 square meters, and to the man with the wind soles, the genius who still makes sink some ink in all corners of the earth.

But make no mistake, the spirit is definitely modern by the home automation, the design and atypical decoration composed of contemporary furniture made to measure, English tapestries and lively warm paints. The mixture is simply surprising, indeed astonishing. This new hotel reference composed of 17 rooms, a bar with free access, a seminar room, a relaxation space sauna, a library and a garden is to be tried absolutely, alone, in duet or with a group, for a full week or for a weekend in Rimbauds land. Enjoy your stay.

Good hotel, somehow doesn’t feel like a chain hotel as it is relatively small and we only saw one staff member during our one night stay. Decent sized rooms, quirky design. Excellent location. Surpris... more
