Room 103 – avoid at all costs. We have been given this room for handicapped people - although both my husband and myself are perfectly fit. We assumed hotel was full. The corridor was crammed with laundry and big cleaning trolleys. We would later learn that this is "normal". Room is big, but not comfortable. Equipment falling into pieces. A broken and wobbly desk in the room with cattle that only works if you keep the button pressed. 2 tiny plastic cups - but I found a large stock on the trolleys outside the door. Large bathroom (wet-shower) but not one single shelf to put your toiletries on. Bags on the floor. While preparing for the night we have discovered that the tap was coming off the sink, so every time we needed water we had to hold the tap in place while pulling up the lever. During the night the plastic screws of the toilet seat came loose and I almost tested the temperature of the water in the bowl. Hurt my leg, as toilet is quite high. While having morning shower, we have discovered that the shower rail is barely fixed to the wall. No shower curtain and the drainage not working properly, the bathroom was flooded in no time. Reception manager in the morning has met our complaints with a very superior and aggressive attitude- "nobody has ever complained about this room before" and "this was fine until now". He was very clearly insinuating that all was perfect before us. We are a 50+ couple and my husband is Teetotal. My French is decent, having lived in France for 20 years, so nothing was lost in translation. To support his “all was perfect before you” position, manager has brought in some cleaning staff. Unfortunately, staff confirmed that the problems had long been logged in the books. If you decide to stay here, ask for a room at the back. Pedestrian street very noisy, bars and clubs open until early morning. When clubbers went home, the cleaning machines replaced them. Exhausting night.

We were here in Reims to visit the City of which the location was perfect. Obviously the downside of this was the busy precinct (Noise going on to the early hours of the morning).Suggest asking for room at the back of the hotel. Suggest this hotel is for couples visiting Reims. General description of the hotel was good with value for money. Motorcycles were parked outside but a nice touch was the night porter was asked to keep an eye on them.

The location of this hotel is perfect, as central to the many bars and restaurants, cathedral etc. The advantage of the hotel is the venue, and whilst clean and comfortable it is more of a basic standard of decor and amenities. Great for an overnight or couple of days stay as in the centre of the main stretch of bars and cafes etc

I stay in hotels throughout France and the UK, frequently. For the first time ever, I left an hotel without staying the night that I had booked, at the Hotel Bristol. I found the Hotel Bristol uninviting and totally lacking in any redeeming features. The public areas are throughly unpleasant. The room, when reached was badly decorated in a virulent yellow. The bed was the smallest double bed ever, with a headboard that consisted of peeling paper with a fake wood pattern. There was no information in the room about how to use the telephone, the TV or indeed about anything. There was no air conditioning and a window that opened practically at floow level which, as the room was on the third floor and we had our two dogs with us, was a non starter. The furnishings were sparse and of the poorest possible quality. The room had a grubby air about it. It was, however, pristine compared with the bathroom. The bathroom had been fitted with what appeared to be anything that had been left over so that nothing matched. It was grubby and the loo paper dispenser was broken. The hotel bar/brasserie was noisy and unappealing to us and even on the third floor we found the hotel generally noisy. The receptionist was perfectly polite, if bored, and seemed entirely unsurprised when we paid for the night that we had booked and left. Not only will we not be going back but we will make sure that no-one we know makes the same mistake as we did in booking a stay at the Hotel Bristol.

It's an old French Hotel with some new parts like the bathroom. The charme is a bit broken. In the front is the Hotel is the street with bars and restaurants. The rooms to the back are quiet, as they could in an old french hotel. The ways to the cathedrale and the museums are about 10 minutes, thats a very big plus!

The Bristol is a charming hotel in an excellent location on a pedestrian stretch with loads of restaurants. However, with the location comes some noise, which can be taxing for light sleepers. Rooms to the back may be a solution. Parking is convenient because close and secure in an underground parking garage outside the hotel. Access is via Boulevard General Leclerc. The breakfast, however, is over-prized and poorly presented, so we left and went to a bakery for pastries and enjoyed them with a large caffe-au-lait while gazing at the the magnificent Reims cathedral nearby.

Hotel Bristol was a good hotel if you consider location and price. Smack in the middle of busy Place Drouet d'Erlon, Reims, you can never run out of choices for eateries and bars to hang out at. The only issue would be that there is no air conditioning in the hotel rooms, and on a hot night if you wish to keep your windows open for cool air to come in, you’ll also be awaken by the late night revellers outside your window. However, with the windows closed, you don’t hear a thing. An amazing thing was, we had a balcony outside our window with a view of all the action below. Playing cards, sipping wine, and watching the fun below was great! The rooms are clean, the price is good considering the prime location and the people very friendly. I would return. L'hôtel Bristol était un bon hôtel si vous considérez l'endroit et le prix. Situé au milieu de Place Drouet d' Erlon, Reims, vous pouvez jamais manquer de choix pour des restaurants et des bars. La seule problème serait qu'il n'y a aucune climatisation dans les chambres d'hôtel, et une nuit chaude si vous souhaitez maintenir vos fenêtres ouvertes pour que l'air frais entre, vous serez également réveillez par le bruit des bars en dehors de votre fenêtre. Cependant, avec les fenêtres fermées, vous n'entendez pas une chose. Une chose étonnante était un balcon en dehors de notre fenêtre avec une vue de toute l'action ci-dessous. Les cartes de jeu, un peu de vin, et l'observation de l'action ci-dessous étaient superbe! Les chambres sont propres, le prix est bon considérant l'endroit et les personnes très sympa. Je retournerais.

A pleasant small hotel. The car park is remarkably close to the hotel. I like the hotel, but was unimpressed by Reims. We ate locally in a restaurant and it was very poor and over-priced. Indeed, my impression of the cafes, bars and the local restaurants was not favourable - expensive and indifferent service. One waiter was still smoking his cigarette while serving Personally, I will not return to Reims.

The hotel is very central and public underground parking at a reduced rate was available 50 yards away. This was a prioity for us as we were driving our own car from UK. Steppingout of the door are many lively and good restaurants with a wide range of prices. Our room was good value but we disliked grappling with the shower curtain and the bed sagged in the middle. The hotel could do with a make-over especially the bathroom. We ate all meals out although the hotel has its own restuarant which opens on to the street.

A nice little hotel. Rooms were comfortable. I think for the price we were quoted, it was quite a good deal. They provide cheaper parking. However we ended up missing out on the reduced rate because it was not very clear to what parking attendant we should take the ticket as there was no parking attendant, only machines that charged us the non-reduced rate. So ask them!!!!

We have been to Reims often and did know the Bristol as a great place to stay. Its location in the centre of the city make it a optimal starting point for sight-seeing, and dining of course.

This was the first time we have stayed at the Bristol. The location was good, but tricky with the car to transport bags back to the hotel.Once we found the shortest route to/from the underground car park it was ok. Xmas market stalls in the centre of the pedestrian zone,obscuring the views did not help. Hotel gave us a ticket for reduced price car park stay too. We stayed in a double room overlooking the back area.Not too bad a view and nice and quiet. The lift is unbelievably small, i just about got myself and 2 soft bags in it! Not bad for value at €68 for 2 people per night. Good location in the main pedestrian area of Rheims.

This is an older hotel that retains most of its Edwardian splendour, including a wonderful, creaky old 'cage' type lift and some elegant old furniture in the bedrooms. In the middle of a square full of restaurants and bars, yet the room wasn't noisy. A power failure in our room that left us completely in the dark was quickly attended to. A hair-dryer was provided on request. For anyone on the way to or from a cross-Channel ferry, this would make an excellent stopover. Didn't try the breakfast so can't comment on this.

Unfortunately, we stayed here one wet late September night. We were expecting inexpensive but not this jaded and worse was to come. It was without doubt the worst night we have ever spent in a hotel anywhere. Sleep was simply impossible due to singing/shouting groups until 3.30am and thereafter due to the loudest, most-mechanised, comprehensive fleet of cleaning equipment assembled in the world which proceeded to remove individually every speck of dirt in the pedestrian area... and then do it again. We threw in the towel at 6.30am to drive to the tunnnel utterly drained. The receptionist must have the least rewarding job in the French hotel business dealing with the severely underwhelmed clientele it generates. If you do have to stay here, don't even think about a room at the front - the summer must be mayhem. On the very much brighter side, Brasserie Flo, 50 mtres up the street is a beacon of all that is good in the best of chain restaurants and should be booked immediately on arrrival in Reims.

Bristol has made the most of its possibilties. It's clean and the staff were very helpful. Our double-room was so small, that we had to lift our suitcases over the bed in order to bring them into the room and the bed was only 1,40m which is rather small for two people. Our room overlooked an inner court where the constant sound of the ventilation and the talking of the restaurant staff kept waking us up throughout the night.

The best thing about this hotel is it's location, especially if you are travelling by train. It is literally almost right accross the street from the train station. The champagne houses are walking distance if you are up for about a mile or so walk. The reception staff were friendly and helpful, provided me with maps of the city. I did not eat the hotel breakfast, since it was a cold continental. Instead I went accross the street and had a nice hot breakfast for about 8 euro. The room was small, but enough for one person, maybe even two. There was a smell of cleaning solution or something, which was unpleasant at first, but it went away (or I just got used to it). Bathrooms were clean, and the shower was good. They do have an elevator, which not all hotels have, so that is good. However, it is a little small, so don't take large bags with you. I'd say it is a great value for the price.

The staff was personable and helpful. The restaurant was excellent! The walk to the Cathedral Notre-Dame of Reims is easy and you get some great photos on the walk up. Be sure to go inside and look at the stained glass. There are three windows by Chagall. It is truly a sight to behold. Then its out the front door and left to the champagne shop. It has some of the small independent wine makers as well as all the big names. We enjoyed everything that we got there. Take a taxi to Pommery. You should go early to get a tour in your native tongue. If your don't get in on the tour, you can still taste the wines for a fee. Their staff is friendly and helpful. BEST chocolate IN THE WORLD is WAIDA. It is a couple of blocks away from the Bristol hotel on the opposite side of the street. Look in the front window for golf ball sized chocolate balls. They are chocolate inside rolled in hazel nuts and then dipped in milk chocolate again. INCREDIBLE!! I've eaten chocolate in Belgium, France, Spain, Italy, Canada, Mexico, and England (and of course the USA) nothing even comes close. The second place chocolate in the world (according to BOB) is Roger's chocolates in Canada.

The kitchen ventilation in the middle of the inner courtyard runs 24 hours and disturbes during the whole night. Some of the counter staff are very helpful - gratulations.

This was a decent place to stay and it was in a very nice area. We had a had time sleeping because it was so hot and there were no fans, and there is no breeze. We slept with the windows open and wet towels wrapped around our head. If you are going in the summer, I would recommend finding a hotel with air conditioning. The heat made it impossible for us to return to our room to relax after walking around. Just too hot in there!

We needed to stay in Reims as we were travelling to Southern France and needed to stay overnight somewhere. found it very difficult to find hotel, didn't know it was in the middle of a pedestrian precinct, couldnt park the car in underground car park as we had a roof box on, my husband has walking difficulties and found it awkward walking from and to the car park at the railway station. It took us overall 1 1/2 hrs to locate hotel as Reims was very busy at 6pm on 13th July and the main road to the hotel was closed to traffic! The only meal we had was breakfast which was quite basic and catered for the continental cuisine.

We stayed for one night and wanted a hotel located centrally and easy to find. Bristol gave us both, it was easy to find and located spot on the main pedestrian street. Parking was offered in a big underground parking garage just outside/underneath the hotel. We also found quite a few Champagne houses nearby, within walking distance and/or short drive. We got what could be expected from a 2-star hotel and found the price well worth in comparison. The hotel restaurant was also worth a visit, not very cheap but good food, wine and service. The rooms were not so big and got quite hot during summer.

Loved the location...convenient to train station, and surrounded by restaurants, cafes, and shops. Hotel staff was very friendly and helpful. The room was typical: tiny with bare-bones decor, and the noise from the stairwell was a little bothersome at night. The bed was very comfortable, and the room was very clean. Breakfast "buffet" was disappointing in it's lack of choices...you're better off going to a neighboring cafe. Because there are so many other hotels in this area, I would probably try a different one next time. We enjoyed our stay, but it was by no means remarkable.

We had a room at the front of the hotel which was very noisy throughout the night. There are a number of restaurants and bars directly outside the hotel, after patrons had noisily left the area (midnight) bar owners noisily cleared up their tables and chairs (1am). A sewage pump truck woke us at around 2am and street cleaners arrived at an astonishing 5am to clean the area with water jets. Bars noisily reaopened prior to breakfaast. The room itself smelled bad due to a patch of damp around the window. Staff were friendly and helpful and spoke good English when our Franch failed. The bristol café ajoining the hotel is good, and the breakfast there was very pleasant. Overall, the price paid for this room, though it as at the cheaper end of the market, was simply not worth it.

Hotel ideally located, the square had tens of pubs, bars and restaurants, and still the rooms were quiet. Only small drawback, breakfast for 8,50 euro is really too much, you can get much cheaper in bars within walkin distance. Otherwise great stay.

We arrived at the hotel at 8pm, only to be told our room was not yet ready and we would have to wait 15 minutes. This was annoying after a long car journey and surely unnecessary as all rooms should have been ready at this time.

We had a room with a small balcony. It was fun to stand outside and watch the activity below. Nice view at night too. At closing time and before opening you could hear the staff at nearby cafes moving chairs and tables, putting them away each night/resetting outdoor seating each morning. Might be a negative for early to bed or late sleepers.

We had a triple room (a double and a single) as our daughter was with us. The hotel is extremely well situated: take a card at the car park, and then the hotel charges you a daily rate of 6 euros (the real rate is 11 euros). The only minor drawbacks: the lift is small and slow; breakfast is quite expensive, but there are lots of other places nearby where you can get coffee and croissants etc. We stayed for two nights and dined both evenings at the Martin Brasserie (good food and friendly service, they also have a children's menu). We also had lunch once at the Salon de thé Louise (interesting and reasonably priced: 6 euros for a glass of champagne!), and excellent sandwiches from the Paul bakery opposite the Theatre. We visited the cathedral and the basilica: we went to the basilica by bus. We also visited the Pommery Champagne house, where there is an underground art exhibition. You can book a visit through the tourist office at the cathedral. It costs 10 euros including a glass of champagne, free for children, but no champagne.

Unfortunately, the room that we were put into was on the lower level and next to the street, so the noise was unbearable. The plumbing in the hotel was also incredibly noisy. The rooms could certainly use new carpet and curtains. The hosts were very nice. The restaurant in the hotel was very good, although the service wasn't very friendly.

Staying at Reims for two days, and coming from Grenoble without knowing anything from Reims, we choose this hotel because quite the only one Two stars located in the center close to the cathedral and other buildings, making them very easy to visit by foot. The parking was unfortunately not free of charge, even with special rates for the hotel clients (6 € for a night.

An overnight stop on the way back from the French Alps. Spacious triple bedrooms with large double bed and standard single bed. Clean surroundings and plenty of character! Ideal stop-over in more pleasant surroundings than the standard hotel chains. I would return for a long weekend, either with or without the children.

Staff were very helpful. The Bristol is located very close to a number of restaurants and bars, though we were never disturbed by noise. Cheap (open air) car parking is close by, and there is underground parking even closer. Definitely recommended.
