new building, self contained. the entire hotel was still under construction!!! it did not even look like it was open for business, i cannot believe a council would let such a business trade. loose wires everywhere, unfinished paths, the entire building was still a work site...had to walk over boards to get into reception. we even had someone else's dirty underwear left in the wardrobe...probably haven't got a cleaning contract yet! might be nice when finished....
Good point to take train from station, situation near station, helpfuly stuff and comfortaibly room with all nessesarys for short and longer stay.
Located across the street from the train station, on the "backside. Exit the station, cross pass the busses, bear left and it's a huge "target in sight." Carrefour City next door. Small but functional kitchenette. Great WiFi in room. Functioning air conditioning. As a solo senior female (I was unable to adjust the filters for this review) I felt completely safe and secure. I overlooked the train station, but could barely hear the noise therefrom. Highly recommend. I would stay there again
The room was very nice, shame about everything outside it The hotel hadn't been fully constructed, lots of work noise, and was basically a building site
Good soundproofing. Proximity to train station as well as arena. Good housekeeping area and equipment and comfortable bed. Personnel courteous. Security issues: entry to hotel on side street poorly lit and isolated. Also, night watchman very young, maybe 17-18 years old. No use of phone at night, had to go across the square to the train station to use public phone. Also, at reception, personnel lacking experience, not able to give me a phone line, charged me for hotel room upon arrival and again upon departure and did not know how to give me a refund on my credit card for the 2nd time charged.
Clean, comfortable. Well equiped kitchen. Not being able to check in till 3pm
Plenty of hot water & clean towels daily! Brand new so everything was spotless. Location.Receptionist was very helpful. On arrival we were shocked to see that the building was not finished.The website photo' shows an apartment block with shops underneath, when in fact the builders were hard at work and the 'shops' were just shells. We couldn't find the door amongst all this! The reception area did not compliment the rooms - rather stark and not welcoming in appearance.
The location was excellent being close to both rail and bus terminals. The provision of a laundry was a rare and appreciated facility. It was modern an well maintained. Breakfast was good. One of the receptionists was offhand and not at all welcoming.
Nice stuff, well-equiped room. Location is OK, but in case of late check in - it is very difficult to find where the hotel is? Nameplate "Citea Nime" is not illuminated at night.
Flexibility, location, cleanliness, breakfast was excellent value for money as was the whole stay.
price, location nothing
Situation of the Hotel. We like the fact that the hotel is an 18 something years old building. The public spaces gave us a real feel of the age of the bulding and area where it's located. Overall, it was a good exeprience. No place to unload our luggages on the street. We had to park our car in a nearby shopping center and walk with our luggages on the street. The room itself was clean, the bed was good but it's a bit outdated and might require some refreshing.
Location. Hard to find on a narrow street, but right in the heart of the old town. Adaquate room, nicely appointed. Interior open-air courtyard was beautiful with old stone archways, had a castle-like feel. Not really. Parking was 100 metres away in a shopping centre parkade, but at 8 Euros/day it was cheap. And what do you expect in a two hundred year old downtown hotel?
Very comfortable clean room. The hot breakfast food is poor.
Quiet room very hard floor--thin carpet right on concrete--my feet hurt when I first got up in the morning to walk on it
Location of the hotel is very good, quite confortable, easy parking A little bit too expensive.
Staff were great
Great room, good staff and excellent value. The location was ideal!
Very clean, quiet and air conditioned - just what we needed None
the location was excelent. The weather was bad and we could not go out for dinner, restaurant was a good surprise.
Excellent location, really friendly and helpful staff, free wifi!
Breakfast is poor and expensive. It seems that scrambled eggs contains everything but eggs. At diner, sirloin could have been tasty, but was cold.Fortunately, there are some honest restaurants around.
my daughter Danielle stayed at the hotel and she said she liked it. The staff were very nice
Myself, my partner and my brother had done a road trip to spain and stayed in this hotel for 1 night on ruturn overall we stayed in 3 hotels and they all were very nice, the hotel staff were very friendly and helpful and the room was clean and tidy. we only had 1 issue with the hotel and it was the breakfast it said 14 euroes each for an american style breakfast and all we got was bread and butter with a choice of cheese and hams and some yogurts and crossants we needed a big breakfast before our next 6 hour drive so was disapointed with that. we would saty again but not have breakfast.
Very friendly people, great location, not too expensive. nothing, fortunately.
The staff were absolutely excellent. Really helpful. The view from our room was superb. The location is fantastic. There wasn't a door or curtain on the shower. Also it helps here if you speak a bit of French.
The location of the hotel is excellent. Just a few metres away from the Roman amphitheatre in Nimes and in the old town with all the restaurants.
Friendly staff, great location, quaint and comfortable rooms.
A very welcoming staff providing useful informationabout the city. Our room was very good and the hotel is in an excellent location. Breakfast was good - early morning street cleaning is noisy but bearable. we shall cerainly use it again. Towels were small rather rough.
Staff were very attentive and happy to see you, they spoke some English, which was very helpful.It's position is excellent, a stones throw from the impressive Amphitheartre and right in the heart of the old town, with easy access to restaurants, DCafe's and bars. It could get a little noisy due to it's proximity to the square and the town centre, however the plusses of this outnumbered the minuses. The breakfast is very minimilistic and I would use Cafe's nearby for this as you can get more for your 7 euro's! There are no tea/coffee making facilities in the rooms.
The place No
Central location Bed very uncomfortable, Pillows very flat, refused extra pillows as the rule is 2 per room.
It is decorated very tastefully and is right in the centre of old Nimes. The proporietors are very conscientious and friendly. The noise in the alleys all around at night - carousing people - cleaning vehicles etc. The heat (unavoidable!).
The room was very quiet and the beds were comfortable, so we were able to have a good night's sleep. The airport shuttle stopped close to the hotel. It was a bit far from the train and bus stations.
The lady at the reception was very friendly and helpful even offered to help us with our luggage from and to the car. The secure car parking. Wasn´t too keen on the location but it was ok for an overnight stay.
It is well positioned to see Nimes, good garage, nice staff. Breakfast was good. Renovation in progress should improve it even more. Plenty of nearby Restaurants and Bars. Price is about right. (Budget level) No Bar. Restaurant not open. Further renovation works in progress and needed. Heating in room.
Very good location. Confortable room (big bedroom and bathroom). Very good price. The bed wasn't very confortable.
The room was bright and comfortable. The cleaner was pleasant and cooperative. The staff were helpful around the car in the garage. The breakfast was good. When we could not get to our car as planned the charge was deducted. Too many steps in the dining room, especially as we had to carry our hot drinks from the machine several times each breakfast, as the cups were so small. The garage was charged for, yet there was a lot of manoeuvring needed and one morning we couldn't get the car out as planned.
My husband and I stayed at the Ibis Styles for 3 nights in December. We thought it was great. The hotel is right behind the train station, which was great for us, as we were using the train for transport. A short walk through the train station and diwn a picturesque walkway got us right to the middle if the old town. The staff was very helpful and had great recommendations for meals. Breakfast was included and snacks were available all day and also included in the rate. Would definitely stay here again! The rooms are great! The only negative is they they are a bit small and a little dark. But, the space is used very well and it was perfect for what we wanted to do. Great value for the money!
Excellent service, friendly and welcoming Inadequate lighting in both rooms and i common areas, however there was great ambience and we thoroughtloy enjoyed our stay
helpfulness and friendliness of staff - ability to communicate well in French and English
Utterly exquisite. A hidden oasis with a passion for detail and cleanliness. Superb facilities. Extremely friendly, courtious and considerate staff led by the extraordinary example of making you feel at home by the proprietors Its not cheap, but it has great value. A must stay at hotel. We will remember our stay for a very, very long time. Superb!!! Formidable!!!! So acessable being 3 minutes from the tvg station. Nothing whatsoever!!!! We take exception to recent reviews saying that the staff were rude. Such a senario is just impossible!!!!!
Location very good close to centre.Beautiful garden with pool - nice retreat from city in midday heat. Very interesting hotel. Great attention to detail. Very personal service. Beautiful hotel, charming accommodation but more like exclusive City guesthouse. Room small for a double room. No minibar.Facilities as an hotel quite limited. Difficult to find.
I loved the bespoke service that was offered - the fact that the owners talk to the guests is amazing. Loved the ambience and the decor. Would definitely go again.
The experience made you feel that you were in a luxury home as a guest, not the normal 'hotel' experience, much nicer. The bathroom takes a bit of getting used to as it didn't have a door.
The building is a lovely old post house with 2 gardens, which are lovely for relaxing in. but we were very unhappy with almost everything about this very expensive and pretentious hotel. Our room was not up to the standard of most 3 star hotels. none of the following: luggage rack, robe hooks, lavatory roll holder, loo brush, soap dish in shower, towel rails, international electrical points, no mini bar, no dressing table, clothes-hanging rail of jacket length - not for dresses, bedside lights only (25 watt) too little to read by, and if switched off at bedside impossible to turn on light when entering room at door. Chicken wire in door-frame between lavatory and bedroom so no visual privacy, and smells penetrated room. 2x25 watt wall lights in bathroom not sufficient for shaving or make-up. Mirror to side of wash basin - bad for wet shaving. Second pillows supplied reluctantly. We shall be writing to the hotel chain
Charming hotel. Very pretty garden. Little far from town center. Noisy because of nearby railroad.
The staff were very helpful and we loved the location and the garden
Location, opposite the railway and bus station. Cheap rates. Not a lot of services, but is good enough Relatively comfortable room In comparison to other ibis budget, I missed a microwave for public use. Very, very slow water drainage in shower. Some nights, shower was more an alternance of hot and cold water than a mix. Internal building sounds, like doors closing, were more a problem than external soundproofing, for me well blocked by the window.
Very Helpful Staff. Good location for exploring Nimes Centre
Reasonable price, excellent central location, quiet air conditioner. We even had a large balcony to sit on. Carpet needed replacing. Elevator only goes to third floor, we were on the fourth.
It was in the Centre of Nimes and we could walk to good restaurants, bars and all site seeing places.
everything was very good. the breakfast was excellent I would have like decaffinated coffee
In centre, near arenes and train station rooms a bit small, but ok for 1 night
Above all its close proximity to the charming old city. Draught beer at O'Flaherty's nearby. Breakfast and other French quality meals in sunlight squares. We booked for two nights and stayed six. The parking was most useful but I think that, for an executive car, access might be uncomfortably tight.
very friendly and helpful staff
beds very comfortable, quiet hotel - good night's sleep, good showers dark in the room breakfast expensive for what it was
clean good value for money good breakfast central-near rail & bus transport.Problemn of getting to the airport caused by a lightning strike by local taxis two & a half hours before the flight departure was most kindly solved by the owner himself running us in his car to the airport--you cannot beat that for service
The hotel was in the centre of town which maent that once the car was parked, we could walk the areas we wanted to visit. There were plenty of local restaurants available
Proximity to station Scarcity of parking space
The staff are very friendly and helpful. It is also very conveniently located and rooms are quiet despite proximity to the railway station. no shower curtain and only two towels for a couple with child. Breakfast was also a bit meagre in choice and quantity, though one morning significantly better than another.
Nothing special to recall other than proximity to station Poor space in bathroom
Basic fairly priced hotel close to station and centre of town,might be considered noisy by some people. no
It is very close to the airport bus stop and the railway station. Showers were not very good.
Both beds were extremely comfortable with good clean duvets. Good hot water at all times. Very central so everything was within walking distance. Room (twin) very small with not much room to move. Although it was hot at night, we had to keep the windows closed because of the train noise. Very few parking spaces for customers.
close to La Gare. The streets in Nimes are very uneven! I stumbled several times.
I'm very sorry but there was nothing I liked about this hotel... As I said before it was a huge disappointment: staff doesn't speak english, receptionist had no communication manners, noise from the train station was incredible and even radiator in the room was hot while autside was +25 degrees! It was absolutely awful. I have no idea why this hotel has 2 stars and is classified as a hotel. I'm very sorry but I'll never come back there and will never recmmend this to anyone else. It was very poor service for the money. I'm very sorry for myself.
Helpful staff who spoke English. Ideal location being by station and bus stop for airport bus. It was ideal for our requirements. The room was hot and due to its city location opening the windows made it rather noisy
The friendliness of the staff
Location, location, location! 20 seconds from Roman theatre, 5 minutes from amphitheatre (which was quite amazing) and close to shops and restaurants. Hotel staff all very good. Bedding and towels all very clean Our room was very basic (no wardrobe nor chest of drawers just open rail and open shelves). Small bath and no separate shower. Very noisy each morning
Liked the location, adjacent to the main sights. Also liked the ambience of the hotel: stone floors, high ceilings, tall French doors opening onto street views. My room looked onto the street on the first floor (European first) and was noisy early in the morning.
Ideal central location. Hotel room with a lot of style. Rather poor acoustic isolation. Vinci public parking pretty expensive.
I would have to say the style of the hotel and the room were outstanding; we felt like royalty. Staff were brilliantly professional and language was no issue. The location in the centre of town was superb and close to all the Roman monuments, coloesium etc. an underground Parking station was very close and extremely unobtrusive which was great due to traffic being insane. The noise from the bar downstairs was heavy (we were in an extremely lavish upgraded suite above it) however in a spirit of holiday loving, if you can't beat it, join it, so we had a couple of drinks downstairs as well.
Nice decoration, comfortable room, heart of the city. No elevator, no international tv, old room door.
right in town centre great price performance Chef even opened up 1/2 hour early as we had an early evening appointment
We have stayed at the Royal twice now. The rooms are fairly basic but very spacious and the hotel has a great Spanish influence. Best of all is its location and the resturant serving taps which has a good atmosphere. Noisy at the front of the hotel and needs better duvets and pillows-perhaps a little more creature comforts?
buono il letto e la caffetteria manca l'ascensore
Its location is excellent. Facilities are bad. Internet regularly stops working.
Nice spacious room and lovely breakfast area and breakfast was very good. Receptionist in the morning was extremely helpful. Arrived 10pm and although the person who checked us in was nice I do not think he was familiar with the role of receptionist. Everything was closed!
Very friendly and helpful staff; very convenient location for us near the raliway station yet in a secluded street; excellent access to central Nimes
The staff was very friendly and helpful. The suite was spacious and well furnished. The bathroom was beautiful and very clean. The location is excellent. The matress of the bed was a bit too soft.
The hotel owner manager was so friendly and accommodating and kind. He and his family gave us warm welcome and we would recommend staying with them without hesitation. The hotel is a short walk from the Arena, shopping central plaza etc. We walked everywhere, even back to train station with ease.
Location of hotel was good but that's about it. The hotel is over 30 years old and never refurbished. The toilet seats were once turquoise and repainted gold. The bathroom tile floor was dirty. Red velvet wallpaper and dark rooms. Hotel is overrated.
location, clean, a/c not for the price
The owner and his family were lovely. They spoke english very well and even their tiny daughter said goodbye in english! It was a good location, comfortable and very quiet at night
Staff very helpful
The staff was helpful and the public areas of the hotel appeared clean and well lighted. The narrow street on which the hotel is situated makes loading / unloading difficult, especially as it has a fair amount of traffic for a one-way side street. The indoor parking down the block was convenient but the garage is very small and maneuvering a large car can be challenging. The immediate vicinity was a bit run down and certainly not a cheerful walking street, especially at night.
Upgraded to suite
Clean, friendly excellent service.
