Personnel was very kind and helpful. Although the room was spacious, it had no air conditioning (and it was summertime). Room was in 3rd floor with no lift. Bathroom could do with better cleaning. The area where the hotel is located, although at walking distance from the city centre, was a little bit discomforting. No free parking.

Location is great for seeing the historic city, the street not being overly impressive, but entirely alright. Public parking within three minutes walking, hotel parking very limited, if on availability perfect. Reception and service extremely welcoming and gracious; within its class, very good value.

This hotel was excellent value for money, and was in a great location. The hotel was just as described in the literature, and for a basic hotel was clean and had all the essentials for a short stay. The rooms were clean, but there was building noise from the building opposite that could disturb light sleepers in the mornings (not a problem for us). The rooms do not have air conditioning, but a ceiling fan kept the room bearably cool. The hotel was in a great location, and all reception staff were lovely. if you need a no frills budget hotel in a great location, then this will serve you well.

The hotel staff were very friendly and welcoming. They always put themselves out to speak to us and informed us of attractions in the city. The room was 'ok' although basic. The bed was small and the pillows (1 each) poor quality. The bathroom facilities were also fairly basic. We felt that 8euros for continental breakfast was expensive. The location for the centre of Nimes is good. Overall, an enjoyable stay.

We passed through Nimes on our way through France and stayed at Acanthe du Temple for only one night but found the staff very friendly and enjoyed the hotel's central location. Eric, a staff member, deserves a 10+ when it comes to customer service. After checking out of the hotel and leaving Nimes, I realized that I had left my mobile phone behind. I emailed the hotel and Eric was extremely helpful in finding my phone and shipping it to me. What the hotel may lack in luxury and room spaciousness it more than makes up for in customer service. Highly recommended.

The hotel was very welcoming,all the staff were friendly and very helpful.The room was pleasant,though it had no view as we looked over the side street to the wall of an old building,and was a bit noisy in the early morning with road cleaning etc.However you could shut the double glazed window,which was effective,and have the fan on to keep cool. We had breakfast every day,which was plentiful-toast,croissants,bread,yogurt,preserves,a selection of cheeses,fruit juice,tea and coffee.We could have had more if we wanted.At 8 euros not the cheapest,but very convenient,and always served with a smile. Monsieur spoke good English,Madame not as good,but she appreciated us trying out our basic French,and we got by.She told us about some restaurants,as we arrived on a Sunday and a lot were shut in the evening. The hotel is in a convenient location for the old town and we walked everywhere.We enjoyed our stay there very much,we would stay there again,and thought our room at 60 euros per night was good value.

We chose to stay in this hotel based on the customer reviews on this site, and I'm glad we did! It's a lovely hotel, in a great location (close to the town centre and the main sites!) Many of the previous guests had mentioned how friendly the staff are, and they really are very welcoming and helpful! Probably the friendliest staff I've come across in a hotel. We had a double room which was spacious and had every thing we could need. The breakfast was good too. A great hotel for a 2 star! Would definitely stay there again.

Ryanair fly in locally with good airport bus link. No need to hire a car.

The only really negative thing we have to say about this hotel is that the Madame is EXTREMELY opinionated. We had arrived on our bikes and had left our luggage outside, in plain sight. Before we were permitted to have our room key we were ordered by Madame to go and get our luggage because there were thieves everywhere! Also, she made a rather derogatory remark about our way of packing and looking after our stuff in general, in French, hoping that we wouldn't understand. Much to her chagrin I did. Wont be going back. Otherwise if you can deal with Madame, the room was lovely, the husband enjoys telling confusing French jokes - so be prepared to act amused - and the situation is ideal. Across the street however is a place called the 'Cat Hotel' which is cheaper and you don't get advice that you don't need!

This typically family run hotel was very clean and tidy - we had no problems with noise etc. excellent glazing and shutters. Fan was excellent-low noise and cool in the night after the very hot days. All bathing facilities were top class - T.V. if reqd. Only slight downside in some peoples eyes may be - no tea / coffee making facilities - but lots of French residences do not offer this as there are so many cafe / bars around. Ideally situated for all of the local tourist attractions and shops/bars. The route to the Hotel from the airport is straightforward enough if driving , although we were happy to use the airport shuttle ,located to the right of the airport exit doors and which we found to be very reasonable and reliable ( the most local stop for the Hotel is just 3 -4 mins walk away on Gambetta. ) Eric (the owner ) is excellent - nothing is too much trouble and his wife although non English speaking is a very lovely lady- we had some fun attempting to recall G.C.E "O"level French to chat to her about breakfast etc. We would definitely recommend this Hotel to anybody who visits Nimes.

It's very difficult to park. We spent about an hour trying to find a space, there is a garage but it's ~10 euros per night. Also we waited a little for the receptionist to pay the bill in the morning (having rung the bell), no problem but he finally arrived and complained to us that he hadn't been called. Night watchman was however very friendly & helpful.

We would like to mention that we chose this hotel based on the rate/ rank given by the reviewers at venere and so it was really helpful, and we did the right choice. So thanks for you all and for Venere. We stayed at Acanthe temple hotel in Nimes in the end of February for a night. The hotel is 5-10 mintues walking distance from the train station, and it is very easy to find. We were received by Eric and he was extremely helpful, polite and nice and provided us with all the instructions and tips needed. The surrounding of the hotel is OK, bars and some restaurants and it is quite during the night (also February not very touristic). The breakfast was OK, standard, yet served with some elegance, and included all whats in needed. Yet, if there are few guests having breakfast on the same time, then you need to wait a bit. We were also asked whether we need a refill of coffee, juice or any other thing. To summarize, it was nice, good, pleasant, and the review on Venere was extermly helpful.

We sed this hotel for a one night stop over on a motorcycle tour, although we arrived early staff went out of their way to let us put the bikes in a lock up garage while we went for lunch nearby. We had a 'rustic' style room while our friend had a more 'elegant' style both were great. Staff were friendly and welcoming. Good central location only slight reservation was the breakfast which was adequate and with good cafes round the corner felt we could have done better, if we'd been staying longer.

booked for 3 nights and when we arrived the person on reception didn't have any details of our reservation. Luckily I had taken our internet confirmation so it was not a problem and swiftly sorted. Reception were really helpful and parked our car in the lock up garage. Our room was kept clean each day. Only problem -the carpet was very poor quality, worn and stained in comparison to the public areas. i think this was making the room smell a bit stale. Other rooms seemed to have better decor than ours. Excellent location for exploring Nimes. Only had breakfast for one morning - very expensive for what it entailed. We preferred to grab a coffee and croissant elswhere

The Maison Carree and les Arenes are each within 15 mn walking, and the Porte Auguste (part of the Roman wall that surrounded the Roman city of Nemausus) is 50m from the front door. The SNCF railway station can be reached in 20mn walking. The staff was friendly and helpful and provided space to store our luggage while we were sightseeing after we had already checked out. I would recommend l'Acanthe du Temple without reservation.

You couldn't wish to find more helpful, welcoming and generally pleasant people than the owners and staff. The hotel is quite hard to find by car (as is everywhere in Nimes) due to the rigorous one way system and the narrowness of the roads but the situation is first class being very centrally located and perfect for arrival and departure either by car or by bus and plane. First class value.

Acanthe du Temple is an ideal location for travelers wishing to visit the old city's many wonderful sites, from Roman wonders that are in such incredible states of preservation to the medieval streets with their wonderful medieval churches, contemporary shops, and fine restaurants. It is possible to walk to these locations in the course of a day and without hurry or fuss with transportation. Parking is provided (at extra charge) by the hotel staff, and this makes it quite convenient for the traveler who would otherwise find it difficult to locate parking within this area of the city. The hotel staff is competent, friendly, and helpful. Rooms are clean, bright and open. Noise within the hotel is scant, but can be a bit louder outside at night (but not to the detriment of sleep by any means). Wireless connection is available in-room. And the prices are very reasonable for a city center.

After checking other feedback, this hotel came well recommended by other guests. We were asked on arrival if we wanted a smoking or non-smoking room. Our room was not large and a bit dark, and basic, but it was clean and comfortable & perfectly adequate for our 3 night stay. The room and the hotel could do with updating and refurbishing, but still represented good value for money.

The hotel was in a good central location with easy access to transport. The staff were really helpful and the reception that we received was 1st class. The room was cleaned daily and the only complaint around the accommodation was the noise outside where street cleaners and weekend revellers ensured that a good nights sleep was a little difficult. Will return in the spring.

A wonderfully welcoming hotel in a wonderful city. Eric and family were most helpful, we were very comfortable thanks to the double room with a balcony, and the hotel itself couldn't be in a more convenient position.

We thought this hotel was great value for money. The decor in the room was a little tired looking, however it is in a good location, walking distance to all the landmarks in Nimes and they also had a free wireless network in the hotel which was not advertised.

We really loved this hotel. The room had been redone recently, was sparkling clean and well-designed, but still charming. The staff was also charming for that matter. A good-quality continental breakfast was provided. There was sometimes traffic noise from the ring road, but it was not a major concern. Very convenient to the sights and the train station as it is in the old town. We will stay here again (we hope!).

Our opinion about quietness (6) refers to the very morning noises from the street (cleaning cars as early as 5.30 a.m.!). Generally, we were glad that the hotel was within old district of the town and very close to the sights. However, we expected the room in the hotel to be more spacious.

Old facilities. Room small, but well placed in the center of the town. We can recommed it for short stays (couple with 2 children) due to room sizes. In the oder side, reception guy was very friendly and he helped us with all doubts.

Bonito hotel situado en el centro de Nimes. Limpio y acogedor. Habitaciones amplias con un lavabo enorme (aunque la ducha era un poco extraña). Dispone de parking, pero nosotros dejamos el coche en el de un centro comercial situado a 300 metros que costaba 8 € la noche. Numerosos restaurantes y tiendas en los alrededores.

A lovely hotel in the historic centre of Nimes, surrounded by bars, shops and restaurants. A short walk (5 min)to the Arena, Maison Carree, station and airport shuttle bus stop. We had a really nice room with a balcony, very clean, nicely decorated, our only complaint would be the shower, which was terrible! It was a little noisy at night with the balcony doors open (mainly though from the numerous church bells which rang every 15 min from about 6am!) but there was a large fan in the room which kept it cool. The owner was very friendly and helpful and spoke good English. They are happy to look after bags after you check out etc. Most of the restaurants are found around a lovely square near the Arena. Arena does an excellent tour with audio guides for about 7 euros. Overall the hotel was excellent value for money and in a great location.

The owners went way out of their way to introduce me to people for my research and even saved a newspaper article for me. They were extremely helpful. This is also the best quality for the price that we've had on our entire trip.

Eric could not have been more welcoming or helpful. Surprised to recieve an email from him prior to arrival asking whehter we wanted smoking or non-smoking. The Hotel had many delightful antique furnishings and the attention to detail flowed through to matching towels sets. In spite of the wet weather we struck, Eric made sure our short stay was memorable for all the right reasons and we would stay there again our next visit to Nimes. Our first visit to Nimes - hopefully not our last. Hotel Acanthe du Temple exceeded our expectations brilliantly.

Nicely sized room but the shower set-up left a little to be desired. No shower curtain and an incredibely high lip would be almost unmanageable for someone with limited mobility. We did not take the hote loffer for a 7€ breakfast and instead used a small space in their fridge to store some of our own yogurt to further increase the affordability of the room. Great location, really nice staff, cute town to visit. Would strongly recommend!
