Just a few minutes' walk from the city center, the Hôtel Le Continental is a cozy city hotel in downtown Poitiers, a medium-sized town in western France. It lies just across from the main train station, surrounded by a variety of restaurants and bars. The friendly and helpful staff will be pleased to assist guests by providing them with useful brochures for their sightseeing excursions; the reception is open round the hour and wireless Internet access is free throughout the hotel. If you have a bike, you may store it in the small garage. Whether you are a leisure or a business traveler, staying at the Hôtel Le Continental will allow you to easily move around Poitiers and its surroundings (including the Futuroscope theme park and the amazing Poitevin Marshes, also known as the Green Venice).
Good location free internet in the lobby
Next time I would prefer a room without carpet on the floor of the room. This gives a fresher impression.
The room was comfortable and fairly sizeable. The staff was helpful; between my broken French and their broken English, we were able to communicate. Parking is in a garage next to the train station across the street. There is a three-spot, 10 minute, check-in parking in front of the hotel. Wifi was straight forward and easy to use; ask for the codes at the front desk.
There was nothing wrong with the hotel. My on-line map location was off by 500 meters, so it was a little difficult to find. The hotel is located at the very bottom of Blvd Solferino across from the train station, below the old city rampart.
Very helpful and polite staff.
Dated/lack of coffe or tea making facilities.
Very convenient position and staff very helpful (as our French is not good). Also although no parking directly at the hotel there were facilities within 2 minutes to use the multi-storey car park which was secure and only cost 5 Euros per 24 hours arranged by hotel. We found this very useful.
clean, comfortable room, proximity to the train station, helpful staff
