A wonderful stay in a beautiful and comfortable hotel in the heart of Nimes. The staff were friendly and helpful, breakfast was good, the hotel was quiet with modern rooms, and the central staircase was gorgeous. The hotel was a few minutes gentle stroll from shops and cafes and a short walk from the arena and other Roman monuments. It was perfect for our chilled out holiday.

Les Halles indoor market for very good fresh produce and chain store clothes at one end of the road, at other end a lovely roman ruin. Also you can get an Algerian style pudding bowl haircut or tattoo opposite the hotel! Good all in breakfast and coffee in nearby Rue de L'Horloge 7.50 euro's. Ok hotel but limited by the restrictions of the building, lovely old stone staircase running thro' centre of building but ordinary rooms there after. Pay for the superior for more comfort and space if staying a few days. Touring cycle clubs favour this hotel for an over night stay because all the bicycles can be accommodated inside the hotel under the sweeping staircase!!

Excellent location - can see all of Nimes by foot from here. 5€ taxi from the train station, walked to the Arenes in 10 minutes. Plenty of bars and restaurants within 10 minutes, hotel was great at helping us find them! Room was a bit small for the price, but was clean and quiet. I would go back!

The hotel was clean and well located within the town. The hotel itself very stylish looking. It is within easy walk of most sights, the block a mix of small businesses, school, apartments and seemed safe. Public parking was nearby. Breakfast was nice; a bit expensive though in line with what most hotels charge and can be skipped in lieu of the food at the nearby market. Room was big enough, based on old European bldg standards. The only negative was that employees had lengthy conversation with each other on our arrival which left us waiting some time before checking us in. All in all, we much enjoyed our stay - both the nice city of Nimes and the hotel.

We loved this hotel because we felt it had character and style!The courtyard area is beautiful and the rooms spacious and clean. Our bathroom could have done with a revamp but it was ok.It was central and easy to find. We didn't have a car so can't comment on parking..maybe not so easy.

This hotel is 20 minutes walk from the railway station but central to the beautiful old town. My room looked onto an echoing narrow back street but it was quiet at night. Nimes is into bullfighting and the hotel features beautiful artworks of matadors. The beautifully restored centuries old mansion has a fabulous courtyard starewell and breakfast room. The English speaking male staff at the desk are ready to help in any way. Dont miss the park of fountains and canals and its restaurant. I was there in June and there is nothing like A Provencal blue sky with swallows twittering above old tiled rooves. The area is safe and you wont have to listen Americans or English. You will feel you are in France

l'hotel è molto suggestivo , catino e ben tenuto considerato lo stabile che ha tanti anni sul "groppone" peccato solo la posizione , in un quartiere che forse andrebbe un pò ripulito ( senza tetto che dormono un pò ovunque ... ) ma tutto sommato tranquillo

Location is close to the importance of town. No parking but low price public parking is located by 2 minutes walk. There is a lift but room location is bit complicated so if you have heavy stuff with your travel, you need to carry up or down to access your room. Patio of the hotel is beautiful and have a good mood.

Old building beautifully restored; good location in town center; pleasant staff, especially Pedro, the night clerk who was very informative and delightful to talk with. Breakfast was nice but, as at most hotels in France, a tad overpriced. Follow the recommendation of many other travelers and head out to a small cafe for capuccino and croissant for much less.

The concierge, check-in person was very helpful... recommended an excellent restaurant nearby and gave us good directions. We arrived late, and he was a reassurring presence on arrival. Nimes is fascinating. We wish we had had more time to explore the area. Next time, we'll stay longer. Our only problem is that we had difficulty finding the hotel and had to wander to locate it. Better and more obvious maps would help.

Hotel in lovely old building with lots of nice features. Room was small with not much of a view. It could have done with upgrading but generally it was OK. Great location with lots of bars and restaurants near by. Surprisingly quiet even though we were in a room facing onto the main street.

Hotel di charme, con stanze piccole ma molto curate. Alcune soluzioni di design sono più funzionali all'estetica ed all'impatto visivo che alla effettiva praticità d'uso. Posizione comoda da raggiungere, anche con auto privata (parcheggio pubblico a pagamento a breve distanza), vicina alle principali attrazioni. Molto gradevoli gli spazi comuni, impreziositi da quadri di un artista locale. Buona anche la colazione a buffet. Le tariffe possono variare molto da un giorno al'altro, cambiando radicalmente il rapporto qualità-prezzo.

l'hotel è situato in pieno centro storico. Per parcheggiare 50 m più avanti c'è un comodo autosilos a pagamento. Una delle nsotre stanze dava su un brutto cortile interno condiviso con un edificio in disfacimento. L'hotel è situato in un edifico d'epoca con un architettura molto movimentata. Ristrutturato in stile moderno è molto carino. Ci tornerei chiedendo specificamente una stanza che non da su quel cortile.

An interesting hotel although our room was fairly small it was OK for a couple of nights. Nimes itself is a pleasent enough, the Gardens and Arena worth a visit. Very friendly staff at hotel who knew the best restaurants ( try Provencal near to hotel) Local people warmer than those French in the north, overall a good city to visit before the airport closes!

This is part of a small chain of hotels "New hotel..." We stayed in a sister hotel in Montpellier which was excellent too. This hotel is right in the middle of the old part of Nimes town about ten minutes walk through little streets and squares to the Colliseum. The building is an old 17th century building converted. The room was spacious and clean. The public areas were pleasant and there was a nice little bar. There was supposed to be a restaurant but apart from serving breakfast I never saw anyone eating there and it didnt look open, though we didnt ask either. The staff at reception spoke excellent English and were very friendly and helpful. I would reccomend this hotel and stay there again, and in fact I will look out for hotels in the New Hotel chain and would certainly book one if available

The public areas of the hotel were quite impressive, however, the room that we were allocated was shabby and tired. The wall lights had been moved and the resulting damage plastered over but not painted the same colour as the walls. The door fittings were not secure, the screws were missing. The toilet and bathroom are separate and the bathroom has no door so if you are not staying with a loved one beware! All in all it is a good hotel, located on the edge of the old town, with very friendly staff but the rooms leave much to be desired.

This was my second stay at the hotel and clearly "NEW" hotel does not necessarily mean better. Our first stay prompted us to return. However, on this ocasion the room's airconditioning unit made our stay someting of a misery. The hotel is designated three star, charging three star prices but not, I am afraid, three star accomodation if I am to judge it by the overall quality of the accommodation offered to us. I have recommended the hotel to many friends in the past but the past is past. Nimes on the other hand is better than ever and we shall be going back again very soon to a "new" hotel!

Hotel was overpriced for its location. The area was not very nice and there were a number of alcohalics and drunks in the vicinty of the hotel. No parking facilities and loading and unloading luggage was difficult due to the one lane one-way system. Area did not look very safe at night. Not a place to recommend to friends.

There was one defect - poor disabled facilities. The bath had no hand grip and was difficult to get out of. In addition the shower was very poor. It was only a hand shower with no support to hang it on the wall to stand over the shower if you did not want to sit in the bath.
