typical old style french hotel. good size room broken shower holder. no lighting by table
Good sized room. Value for money. Could do with a little refurbishment.
Friendlyness and efficiency of the staff
I find the hotel very late at 11 + but the key was there with my name
Parking for motos.... small narrow staircase to room 6, akward with all of our bike gear, but room was ok.
Had a free car park Very tatty and bathroom so old did not want to shower in it.
The attention and service of the owner/staff was very good. They were quick to provide advice and answerws to our numerous questions and provided a lift for one of our less mobile friends, gratis. There were no provisions for evening meals. The shower head had come away from its fixing therefore you had to hold the shower, but only aminor inconvienience.
Staff very pleasant. Location good The room and hotel were very much in need of repair and renovation. The room shower was off the wall due to broken bracket. The bath was dirty with missing big pieces of enamel. The TV was in a bad wall position because the power cable wire would only stretch that far across the wall from the socket! Balcony was dirty and unpainted with broken chairs. The gardens outside were like a scrap yard. My wife nearly divorced me for taking here here. This is a bikers/skiers hostel - no more.
Close to old town
This hotel is well located, half-way between the lower town and the old town. Many rooms have balconies with mountain views. The room was very plain. Both the room and the corridors could use a fresh coat of paint. The floor was dirty and there were dirty cobwebs in the bathroom. There were no bedside lamps. The bed was hard.
It should be empasized that hotel staffs were kind and good at English. Access from railway station is easy.
The welcome was helpful, particularly with help with access to the limited parking area with barrier, The view from our room was beautifull The limited parking arrangements could be mentioned on the website.
Perfect city center location. Great breakfast. 10 Euros a day for internet!!!! simply abusing. Beside, internet is advertised as being free on the internet reservation site.
Staff were very helpful; restaurant was excellent The surrounding area was still a building site
The hotel was great, very chic decor and friendly staff. The meal was fantastic..think we all ate too much!
Excellent modern hotel made of wood.
no spa no fluffy dressing goundsstaff don't know whats what we had to sit on bar stools for breakfast because our breakfast was included in the price so we were not good enough to sit with the guest that payed 15 euros in the dinning room.
The staff is very friendly and helpful. The hotel is fresh and modern, with nice design. We really liked the family suite room layout. The hotel has not been open very long, so it seems to need some finishing touches to make it top notch -- for example, the upstairs room in our duplex did not have any shower curtains.
Real Log fire, central location, secure parking, good food
The location was very convenient for hiking and exploring the village and mountains. The staff was very friendly. The overall appearance of the hallways and rooms was dark and depressing. Our room, while clean, had a very musty smell that at times was overpowering.
The staff was wonderful. The breakfast wasn't really that good.
The Old Vauban Village and the Fortifications are great. Unfortunatelly I was not able to visit the Park which is just a few steps from the hotel. I would really recomend it for a relaxing tour "au bord de La Durance".
Hotel Vauban was a nice hotel, close to the slopes and good location to restaurants and shops. The staff speak english and are only to pleased to help.
Although an older hotel, the room itself was comfortable, clean and fresh. The restaurant food was well prepared with good service. The road noise quietened down and was not a problem. The bath did not have a curtain to contain splashes from the shower, resulting in a flooded floor. Maybe the contantly-leaking water was the cause of the damp smell in the lobby and stain on the restaurant wall.
the evening meal was excellent and the room was very comfortable and spacious breakfast was not value for money
seemed to be family orientated which we liked, very helpful staff
Very nice reception and the parking facility around the corner. Room very nice, but the balcony in bad need of maintanence. The breakfast buffet ok. The restaurant dining room very nice, however the quality of the menu was the worst I ever had in a Logis de France restaurant. Normally in my experience l d f have excellent food in their restaurant. In fact made a complaint directly at Logis de France H.Q.
Quite environment Bathroom old style, shower rose is a hand shower
Its very close to the ski Lifts. Has a ski boot drying rack and lockers. Good car park, Nice breakfast, loads of food. Staff Nice, can speak English well and are helpfull. Rooms a little small, but nice enough.
location to our bike journey breakfast was worse than mediocre
Friendly helpful staff and good breakfast facilities and choice.Good view of the ski slope. The room was quite small and tight even for two people but functional. There was a slighty unpleasant odour on the stair case from reception to 3rd Floor.
Leaving. Disgusting - not very worthy of being called a hotel - let alone The Grand Hotel.there were no beds in our room, only cupboards to make your own- dinner was terribly slow ant there was no hot water - unbelivably bad.
good location, nice restarant,
The main attraction is that this hotel is in the old town of Briancon, which is absolutely stunning perched up on the hill. The hotel itself is quite basic, but has the charm of an old french inn. I would think it's very much for skiers, hikers etc who are there to be in the outdoors, pretty good value.
good restaurant , nice decoration no
location good in centre of old town but quite a climb from the main town. Pleasant welcome despite late arrival-willing to prepare something to eat although 10pm. Room was small- but bed comfortable. No lounge/bar in hotel so nowhere in hotel just to sit to read except room.
A beautiful location in a walled town-wonderful experience to return after many years. Friendly helpful staff & excellent meal & rom.
The room was rather charming with neat antique furniture, could have done without the ancient mattress. the room's phone did not work (you could dial and receive calls but no sound went through), and they were not too happy when I asked to use the front desk phone to make a toll free call. The phone was also irritating the next morning - the staff did not notify us of checkout times, but they did call us numerous times in the morning to see if we were going to leave soon (it was still before 11 when we actually left).
Modest, but well-run little hotel, located in the heart of the old city. Rooms are basic and would need to be refurbished, but remain perfectly acceptable. Staff was helpful. Breakfast was fine.
visiting "middle age fortified city" built by famous french architect : Vauban Room was too tiny
I liked having the kitchen so that we could eat in occasionally. The apartment was modern and it very good shape. The associated Spirit Bar and another bar next door generated noise levels that ranged from noticeable to obnoxious, including an end of season party with a DJ that lasted until after midnight. With no air conditioning, the windows had to be left open and it was quite loud.
The reception was wonderful. Location was very difficult. to find
The lady hotel owner spoke english and was very pleasant, private parking to the rear of the hotel and was offered parking for the motorcyle in the garage. Felt the hotel was expensive for room, very basic, the walls were paper thin, all floors had hardwood covering. People returning from nights out woke us up, you could hear everything. We were woken up be the guest in the neighbouring room at 1am as they put their tv on. I had to bang on the wall it was so loud. I did not manage to speak to the hotel owner before we left but was going to ask if they have ever slept in their rooms and were they aware of noise. I would not stay there again.
It was easy to find, close to all attractions, had a great breakfast, loads of free parking on-site, quaint decor and a great restaurant for all meals mattress on bed was very uncomfortable
The easy to get into the old town.The semi secure parking for two motorcycles. The hotel is in need of a general revamp
This hotel is right on the road to Italy and has excellent WiFi.
The hotel was very well located for the scenic & tourist amenities. Good off road undercover parking for motorcycles. None
Close to the Old City, within walking distance. Parking for motorcycles off the public road. Pleasant atmosphere.
Off road bike parking, friendly staff
Food at the restaurant Room would need more renovation
The room was a good size with a nice, clean bathroom. The view from the balcony was wonderful, showing one of the forts and the surrounding mountains.
Chaotic restaurant and limited choice
a very nice hotel, with good food at a reasonable price.
The friendly management and staff, the good food and the excellent location, plus easy car parking You need to be a reasonable speaker of French
