Location -a busy square in front of the fort- is the most important advantage. Hotel is slightly outdated. Room was not clean. Public spaces aren't clean as well.Lift is too small. Staff was too busy to be patient and friendly. Barr staff was, by the way, more friendly.

Pleasantly surprised with location right in the touristic area of the old town. Directions were excellent and very precise. Hotel has an old charm to it with period furniture and a huge bathroom. Needs a handle bar in the shower for older people be able to get out of the bath. Warm and cosy room. Breakfast very french with a great variety of food. Lots of restaurants around it.

We asked for advice on how to get to Dinan from St. Malo and the woman at the front desk had no idea. I also asked for directions for the lift 3 times (we couldn't locate it) before she actually showed us where it was.

Our first visit to Saint-Malo. Stayed 3 nights for my wifes birthday. Standard rooms are small with no tea/coffee provided, and no view either. Furnishing and decor rather tired - but very clean, and with comfy beds. Location is excellent with plenty of bars, restaurants and shops within 5 minute walk. Parking nearby was not a problem and was free during our visit in March 08! Staff were all nice, didn't eat in hotel, but bar is very pleasant and interesting. Loved Saint-Malo and Brittany, will definately return. Mont Saint-Michel (40 minute steady drive)is definately a must see attraction.

The location is fantastic and so convenient for exploring St Michel. It is right amongst the main cafe strip and close to buses to and from the train station. The rooms are very clean and the bathroom was recently renovated. The only complaint was a few discrepancies between the venere web page and the actual property - check in was 3pm not 12pm and the Wifi is not available at no cost. Otherwise, a nice hotel and would recommend it.

Extra cost of a room overlooking the chateau is worth paying as the view from others is a bit dull. Parking may be a challenge if you arrive at peak times (early or late in the day seems best). Hotel restaurant offers excellent food, wine and service. Exploring St Malo with an audio guide worked well for us; a boat trip and time spent in Dinard is also worthwhile. Generally, a very pleasant place to stay.

Description misleading. "Selected by Guide du Routard as one of the best 20006 French hotels". Not our room. Room looked "tired" with old cheap-looking furniture. But large tiled bathroom. Hallway light activated by "motion sensor", after you were part way down the hall! Never responded to my fax regarding parking (which was very "iffy). Good location. Exterior as pictured.
