Good location, plenty of secure parking and friendly front-desk staff. Getting served dinner after 830pm can prove very difficult. The restaurant serves until 10pm, however, because the restuarant is too small for the number of guests one is forced to wait a very long time to secure a table. For young children having to wwait can prove to be traumatic.
Very well located, close to the Congress Center. Free internet.
Comfort and good service To charge 18 euros for an ordinary breakfast of fruit juice, coffee and a piece of pastry is outrageous. We had to find alternatives elsewhere.
The building and rooms are a little old, minor details like painting not perfect an old TV, small indoor swimingpool, etc. But well located and excellent breakfast
For a wedding
This is not a four star hotel. 3 stars would be more appropriate. The hotel rooms need refurbishing, furniture, carpet , are getting old . Wallpaper is coming off the waal.... Despite that is was a non-smoking room, the smell indicated heavy smoking in the room .
The beds were too firm
We only stayed 1 night but all staff were extremely nice and helpful particularly as I lost my mobile during our time there and they were most kind when I telephoned and they have posted it back to me.Thank you and we would most definitely stay again.
The location is good. But that's only the beginning, with hotels... The bed was the worst and most uncomfortable bed that we ever slept in, and the lady on reception didn't seem the slightest bit interested to hear about that. We checked out of the hotel and stayed another two nights in this town, but at another hotel.
The hotel is a beautiful (chic, modern, clean, comfortable and on par with North Americans' relatively high expectations standards when it comes to hotel rooms) property located right on the lake/marina and away from the dowtown hustle and bustle. Signs to the hotel were posted in town, which made it relatively easy to find. The front desk staff were not particularly welcoming, friendly or helpful compared to most of the other hotels we stayed at. However, they were professional.
Good sized rooms, and although a little old fashioned in decoration, they were very comfortable. I wish I'd had more time to try out the facilities as the pool etc. looked great Breakfast was a little disappointing - the tea and coffee were cold and the staff on duty not overly helpful. the option of a cooked breadfast would have been nice.
The leisure facilities ie pool etc
Free very secure underground car parking. Large spacious room with good sized balcony. Free room safety deposit box. Helpful reception staff who spoke good English. Contiental breafast was extra cost and extremely poor value with little choice. Hotel was clean but generally was in need of a face lift.
Hotel staff was very friendly and helpful. It is not located in downtown but in a very nice location next to the lake and easily accesible to downtown. If I rated "facilities" as regular it was because of the reasons enumerated below. It is supposed to have free internet connection and that is one of the reason why I've choosen it. But the wifi didn't work during my 3 days of stay and it was a real nuisance for me as the main reason of my stay was to work. The minibar was not enough supplied and when I asked for it they told me that that could not happen until next day. So I had to buy drinks at the bar, which was quite more expensive.
well situated near the lake,the restaurants. easy access to the town by car.hotel was quiet and very relaxing.
Fantastic location, wonderful views of mountains and lake, close to bars and restaurants, short drive into centre ville, rooms clean, large and comfortable, would definitely stay there again.
Pleasant Staff, good service
Very cosy hotel, situated just on the lake coast. Spa-center is very nice. The city center is not near, but the bus station is in 2 min. The breakfast is simple, but the dinner is one of the best in the city.
It was well situated at the side of the Lake. A marina was oposite which is entertaining for people who like boats. None
no clock in the wellness area, WiFi too expensive.
Its a nice hotel, nothing special. Cause of a fire the swimmingpool and other spa facilities arent open. Grund floor/reception is very nice modern and clean. Room could use an upgrade.
The hotel did not offer any non smoking rooms. The room we stayed in stank of stale smoke and no alternative was available. The pool was pleasant but lack of changing rooms was inconvenient. At breakfast, by 8.30, the croissants had run out managed to serve some more 15 minutes later! see above.
The food was generally very good. The pool was lovely too Some unpleasant teenagers in the pool on the Saturday evening who spoilt the relaxing atmosphere. The food was good except for the vegetables. Regards question 4, I'm not sure if we are a young couple (probably not at nearly 50) but I didn't like to have to select mature couple!
Staff were pleasant, helpful in storing our bikes securely.Breakfast was good value. No airconditioning so stifling hot all day and all night. Electrical fire meant no swimming pool/ spa and no restaurant bar during our stay (no discount) which was poor.
No tea/coffee making facilities
Peace and quiet n/a
Very comfortable and clean, extremely good value for money. Underground garage available. Pet friendly. Quiet although in the center of the town. Very rich breakfast. Deserves four stars.
Restaurant was good. Room was not as good as expected, and not as good as web suggested.
Confortable room- nice to extend your journey if you like for a special price The staff is not speaking English fluently- the use of the facilities should be for free for the customers of the hotel and open also in the evening
Nice clean hotel with good parking facilities, Key to our decision to stay here. Food in resataurant was very poor. Waited almost an hour for main course and was then hard (Duck). Waiters do not speak English either.
no problems the hotel was resonable price clean & friendly. walking distance from aix town centre. restaurant overpriced
We booked the hotel for 2 nights, but could stand it only for one (extremely noisy location, no condition, bad chemical smell). The personnel was nice and understanding and refunded us the second nice (and paid some compensation!). So we moved to Villa Marlioz 5 min away,which is lovely! I would keep only the seconf part of this hotel (ARIANA 4*), and simply close this one, as it is not suitable for holidays
The personnel were friendly. The restaurant service in the sister hotel was friendly but very much cafeteria quality. We were served by five different staff. The minute you were finished your course your next course was served by another member of staff with no time to relax between courses.. The overall experience in the restaurant was appalling. I feel qualified to make these comments as I have had and run my own rerestau
Nice clean hotel but How many hotels in this day and age do not have a restaurant or bar This hotel is obviously a summer hotel. It needs to maintain its standards all year round
Room is small. It was noisy in the morning due to the nearby street.
Room and price
Superb position beside the lake and ready access to a number of good restaurants. Good bathroom.
The hotel was used soley as a one night stop-over with late arrival. Not an ideal stay for a review Romm and bathroom were well furnished with pleasant attractive and out of the ordinary decor. Bathroom was well equipped but shower arrangement was impractical causing some flooding
Decor and bathroom, location
There was a fine atmosphere at the reception when we came, and that lastet during all our stay. We appriciate that.
A super deal in every respect-we would go again
Small, welcoming hotel
Good location, close to the lake and restaurant. Easy to get to (10 minutes by taxi from train station)
Nice little hotel to stay in, and in summer would be lovely just about beside the lake.
i have stayed in Aix Les Bains before but always in the centre of town. this hotel is a further out and a lot quieter as it is back from the main road, so for peaceful stay this is a very good hotel.
Could not buy a snack, very impersonal
Good location, spaceful room. I brought my swimsuit for spa, but they did not allow me to wear it, and forced us to buy sandal according to their rule.. so finally it costed more than 30 Euro/person just to enter spa area! You had better check their rule before going. Room maintainence and restaurant are poor for four-star hotel.
It wasn't the easiest hotel to find
The staff were very friendly and the room was quiet. I would not class this Mercure as 4 star. It is very tired, and quite a way from both the lake and the city. The food was very average.
Clean and welcoming. Cot provided automatically (although we indicated that we would bring our own) at no charge. Good stopover hotel. Swimming Pool included in information, but costs 10 EUR person/day. Description generous - playing fields and busy (noisy) road adjacent. Quite a way from both lake and town.
Very nice hotel with beautiful garden. Very good price- quality ratio. Location is good if you are driving. Lack of air conditioning can be a problem when the weather gets really warm. Communication was not always easy as I dont speak French
The room was lovely and nicely decorated, with a huge comfortable bed and nice bathroom. Nice gardens outside. Very good value for the price and I would definitely stay there again. It is not in the centre of Aix les Bains but this is reflected in the price. It is a two minute drive, in a residential area..
Good retaurant: good pool; helpful staff Hotel in need of updating bedrooms and in particular the bathrooms - hand held showers over a bath which don't stretch far enough to enable you to stand while showering not really enough these days. Much further out of town than had realised. Only just walkable in daylight: a car or taxi was needed otherwise to get to the port, the lake or the town centre.
Not as close to the lake as it appered frmthe information and on a main road.
Peaceful and quiet. Good food, friendly and helpful staff. Pleasant, restful setting. No complaints.
Lovely garden. Very French old-style hotel design- great if you don't like the uniformity of most hotels. The most comfortable bed we had on our week long road trip- with duvet instead of the blankets everywhere else. Breakfast looked to be just a cold buffet so we gave it a miss and drove to the port for a cafe breakfast.
We had requested a quiet part of the hotel and they assigned us a great room in the back overlooking the garden. The room was immaculate, beds good and it was very quiet. A bit difficult to find, but easy in and out of town.
The staff were very welcoming. The restaurant provided a varied selection on the menu and food was well prepared and beautifully presented. The swimming pool area was kept clean and there were plenty of chairs etc for relaxing. The bathroom was very small. A kettle for tea/coffee making, and a fridge would be a welcome addition, but I realise space is an issue.
Nice people,the place is calm, tha garden is very romantic
Evening meal was excellent
You can't call this hotel ! Motel would be more wright....and very expensive one !
Such a lovely hotel we stayed an extra night. It was so relaxing and the gym, pool and spa were a real bonus. Good value for the standards we received and very reasonable prices in the bar
lovely location, big rooms, totally non smoking its better to have a car, as public transport near hotel is very limited and taxi is very expensive
As usual, lovely place to relax. It's my third visit, and, certainly, not the last!
Our kids was not allowed to use the pool because they had the "wrong" type of swimsuits,their swimsuits apparently looked like shorts.The guy was very rude.
Good sized family room with bunk beds in separate room. Quiet location with nice views Frustrated that large restaurant was supposedly full for late arrival
Relaxing environment and excursions organised by Vacances Bleus representative swimming pool guard was extremely picky with anything we did he didn't like, but didn't seem to have any problem with French guests behaving similarly
the swimming pool, the staff, the entertainment the dinners
Close approximity to Chambery airport. Clean hotel, a little dated in rooms and communal areas, with limited restaurant / bar facilities for a medium to large hotel We picked this Hotel for its advertised Spa facilities, and had travelled some distance for our stay. The staff gave us incorrect pool & spa open times! Even so we arrived at these facilities earlier than the actual closing times and were still not allowed to use facilities, which was incredibly rude and poor service. We then attempted to use facilities the following day and were told that in France shorts were not allowed in the pool only speedos for males! Any visitor from abroad should be made aware of this!
Great place to relax and chill out, probably, best hotel in aix les bains. Nice swimming pool, beautiful location, extremely friendly stuff, will come back!! It will be nice to have a free "navette" to go to the lake as it is quite far away, and there is not much public transport
The family that own the hotel are very friendly and helpful. I don't know if they can speak English, as I spoke French. I found the hotel great value for money (55 euros/night) and I was very comfortable there. If you want a four star hotel go to a four star hotel. If you want a nice place to stay with friendly staff and you don't mind if everything's not absolutely perfect, come here.
The central but quiet location, very friendly staff, free private parking. Breakfast too expensive (we hadn't it because of the price); very small bed (but all French beds are small): if possible better ask for a room with twin beds. No air con in the rooms.The hotel would need some renewals.
Excellent location - holiday was part of following the Tour De France None
The acommodation is situated in an old abbey which gives it a unique setting in beautiful surroundings.
Good clean hotel, friendly staff.
The staff were very friendly and accommodating, the room was good value and had a beautiful view of the Notre Dame church and surroundings and the location was excellent. The only bad points I can think of were that the shower water wasn't quite hot enough and neither was the heater. A T.V. station in english would have been good too.
Large room; very polite and helpful staff. Will return there if we return to Aix-les- Bains. Breakfast price is too expensive, so we ate out.
Parking at the hotel and waling distance to to centre Breakfast finished at 9,00am but on holiday we want it till 10,00am usual in almost all hotels
We dit not get value for money; the food in the Campagnile in Aix les Bains was bad !
Great motel-style for a stop-over. Clean and good value for money.
Everything needed was there. Rather small but adequate space.
It was a comfortable and convenient stopover in pleasant surroundings on our way to the Alps No.
Restaurant excellent staff really friendly and helpful, rooms but clean and warm brilliant shower! Will use again for future trips to the alps.
I liked the simple but efficient service provided by friendly staff, and the room was adequate for a short stay. The air-conditioning and room heater did not seem to be working. The price of breakfast was rather high.
close to the centre of town ,short walk to the shops, parking opposite the hotel. room 1 ,balcony looked on to hedge.
Lovely town, beatiful surrounds, quiet but near the town. Friendly staff and helpful. Comfortable room. No shower to stand in. Little basic for the price.
The service was nice and friendly, and it was very close to the city. Food was not very nice and the rooms were quite uncomfortable.
This was our second stay and as usual we received a lovely welcome, we would definately recommend this hotel!
location and price it was not air conditioned and no fan was available. Also it was a big deal to borrow a hair dryer from the front desk. The hotel seemed to be for old ladies on pensions which made it a quiet place but we prefer a greater diversity of clientele.
The tv screen was too small
Close to the Casino and the promenade. Staff very helpful. Spacious room and clean. Also the Jazz festival was on at the time - brilliant. No hotel parking available (full). parking in the town very expensive. the best I found was at the casino at 1 franc per hour (24 per day or £12). Hotel staff recommended the forum car park but that was more expensive!
The reception peoples don't speak English (Not everybody). He didn't understand the room numbers! The internet booking letter wrote Total costs EURO 210.00 (3 nights) and "forgot" this not included the breakfast. He wrote: Standard Twin Room, extra bed is more cost. And I need pay EURO 262.20 It's not correct. The beds are very hard. The bathromm service is terrible ( the bath is very small,...)
Friendly staff at reception; very attractive pricing Rooms were small and basic. Bed was firm to hard; There was no parking available at or immediately outside the hotel (although there was a covered public carpark about five minutes walk away).
Simple hotel, but comfortable and very clean. Good location in the town center of Aix. Hotel staff are very helpful.
Cheap, good location, everthing adequate Had to phone them when we arrived at 10.00pm because reception was closed.
Staff very friendly and helpful Had a room in the loft (top floor). Room was hot and outside was too noisy to keep the window open.
Spacious room, regarding the price Fair breakfast
Good location. Helpful staff
Nothing! This type of quality should not be advertised on the internet. Not clean, exceptionally small, no shower or bath, the lift measures less than 1square meter. Bad, bad, bad
Location. Views from Lake stunning. Restaurants and bars lively but not too lively. Easy walking distance to Railway Station (10mins).
Very friendly staff, room basic but clean and comfortable, good value for money, good location in a pleasant town. No really bad points except perhaps the lack of tea and coffee making facilities in the room.
Friendly and helpful staff The rumble strips on the Rue de Geneve mean that any city centre hotel will be noisy
restaurant directions were poor...lack of facilities in room e.g. no hair dryer
the ambiance is very good and i like the fireplace
Staff were excellent, the triple room was very large, food great but our stary was only a stop over while driving from Italy to Wales so arrived late & left early next day. Would have like to have stayed longer.
Very specious room. Airconditioning made a bit of noise, yet it was not too hot outside, so we had the fan on "low" and not a lot of noise was made... Liked the look of the room: clean, modern without too much things but all basics were there. Quite contemporary look.... Did not use the restaurant but it looks really nice.... Lot of business people.... It's amazing to see that the shower did not have a bar to put shower head. When taking a shower you actually had to hold the hose with your hand...! Is this a way of "saving" water? Really unacceptable for this hotel... I took a bath instead, which consumes even more water...
Pleasant hotel with an excellent ratio quality/price.
We like the comfortable and spacious triple room, the free Wi-Fi and the great pool set in a lovely garden. The receptionist was very helpful and polite. Breakfast a bit expensive for what was on offer
The staff where very polite and helpful. The rooms where comfortable and quiet.
The windows were open and the smell of fresh cut grass outside. We booked 4 rooms for 3 nights and we chose this hotel for the free wi-fi access and we were told at check in that the free wi-fi internet access was not working and would be working the next day. The next day at 4 pm we were told the wi-fi was still not working and might be working the next day and we needed the internet access for business immediately. I went and got rooms at another hotel and checked out and they wanted to charge us for the entire booking of 3 days for 4 rooms. We worked it out eventually but we were very disappointed with the hotel. They are no longer Best Western and the rooms are very dark and the furniture old and there was mold in one of the bathtubs caulking.
calm and quiteness, silence, good service
