The hotel is located between the train station and the center of the city close to a square. If you do not have difficulty walking then it is fully possible to walk from the station but it is not very close. In the vicinity of the hotel there are restaurants, bars and a supermarket. We had a superior room on the fourth floor with a very nice view of the city and towards the Puy des Domes. It was a normal sized room in modern design with air conditioning which was somewhat noisy but worked well. There was a minibar, a nespresso machine, a kettle and a safety box in the room and the wifi was free. We appreciated that the hotel offered two bottles of water complimentary that were in the room. The television had French, Spanish, Italian, English and German channels. The bed was big and we had a good nights sleep. The room had a minimalistic balcony with entrance odd enough through a window. There were no chairs on the balcony. Bathroom and toilet were in separate rooms. The bathroom was clean and had a shower in a tub.
The hotel has a nice top floor with a small terrace overlooking the city and towards the Puy des Domes. Breakfast is served here, which allows you to enjoy a beautiful view while eating. The breakfast was an unusually large and well-stocked buffet. As hot dishes there were scrambled eggs, sausage, bacon and pancakes. Bread, several different kinds of local cheeses, various marmalades and organic hazelnutcreme were available at the buffet. There was an orange press so you could make your own juice. Of course there were muesli and several different kinds of yogurt. The hotel has both a bar and a restaurant on the ground floor, but we did not try these. The reception staff were very nice and everywhere at the hotel we were met by smiling staff who greeted us. It felt like it was a good atmosphere among the staff. We thought the room was very good value for the money and the hotel was nice and very well functioning. Thus, it is a hotel we would highly recommend. less
