The familiar atmosphere provided by the Appart'hôtel Odalys Le Cheval Blanc’s attentive and cordial staff will make you feel at home, as you let the amazing sceneries and the rich history of Nîmes surprise you. Don’t hesitate and book a stay at this lodging in Southern France.

A comfortably unconventional place to stay!

The Appart'hôtel Odalys Le Cheval Blanc’s building has a history all of its own. Originally built in the 18th century as a factory that produced the city’s typical textile export – denim fabric – it was subsequently converted into a hostel and then upgraded to a classy boutique accommodation. The interesting past of this property has left its mark on the shape of the rooms and other peculiarities. In accord with French tradition, very large windows will brighten up every inch of your room and provide you with superb views of the amphitheater of Les Arènes. The bathrooms have an elongated shape and offer plenty of space.

An amazing hotel for an amazing city!

If you love history, art and magnificent landmarks, then Nîmes is a place that you shouldn’t miss out on. Appart'hôtel Odalys Le Cheval Blanc is located in the very center of the city, directly opposite the beautiful Roman Amphitheater, known as the Arena of Nîmes, or Les Arènes in French. This historic building dates back to almost 2,000 years ago and has been remodeled and renovated a number of times during its long history. Most famously, it was converted to serve as a bullring back in 1863 and has been hosting two yearly bullfights since then.

Don’t miss out on the opportunity of assisting one of these colorful and traditional events during your visit! The arena couples history with innovation, as it was covered and provided with a heating system to give 24,000 spectators maximum comfort. It regularly hosts concerts of famous music groups, especially in the summer, and many have found the setting so inspirational that they have filmed DVDs and music videos on location, most notably Metallica, Dire Straits and Rammstein. The arena has also been featured in many movies and even a WWE wrestling event takes place every year!

But Nîmes is not all about the Arena; the Appart'hôtel Odalys Le Cheval Blanc is also within a very short distance from the monument known as the Maison Carrée, a temple built by Marcus Agrippa, the patron of the famous Pantheon in Rome, who dedicated it to Gaius Caesar – the son of the emperor Augustus. It is one of the best preserved temples to be found anywhere in the world and is a perfect example of Vitruvian architecture. Last, but not least, the beautiful Parc des Jardins de la Fontaine park offers you a chance to restore your body and soul in a green environment well within the city. One of Europe’s most ancient public parks, Jardins de la Fontaine is also not short on lovely statues, such as the nymphée complex. The surroundings of this romantic accommodation in Nîmes will make for an unforgettable stay!

A place for gourmets!

You’ve come all the way to France, now it’s time to sit back in a good restaurant and let the distinctive and savory flavors of its cuisine fill your soul (and stomach!) with joy and pleasure. The typical cuisine of the Gard département offers plenty of fine cuisine; why not try some chestnut jam or some apple-filled biscuits? Beef, pork and tripe also feature in many tasty dishes. Several good restaurants are within walking distance of the Appart'hôtel Odalys Le Cheval Blanc, most notably the Wine Bar, the Lisita or the Restaurant des Arènes. So forget about your diet and enjoy some delicious food!

One of the largest rooms I have experienced with kitchenette facilities. Staff was very helpful and made our stay very pleasant, in particular the hotel manager. Hotel is on a very busy one way street and one cannot park in front of it except for loading/unloading.

Stayed two nights at Le Cheval Blanc Hotel, staff were very friendly and welcoming, I forgot a power adapter and they gave me one to use while there. Great free internet service, hotel overlooking Roman Arena, which is probably the best view in Nimes. Only one small complaint our room only had a hand held shower in the bath. Fantastic restaurant of the same name attached to hotel, friendly staff, excellent food and wine list, and all at very competitive prices. This restaurant should not be missed if in Nimes. Nimes itself is a great place to visit lots of historical sites to see and things to do, great shopping also in the town center. Will be back!

We enjoyed a very pleasant stay at Le Cheval Blanc where the staff were all friendly, helpful and attentive. The room was excellent with good facilities for self catering if required. Being at the front of the hotel it suffered from some traffic noise. The position was central for the town being opposite the Arena and near to all facilities. A most enjoyable stay in a good hotel which was well staffed. We would return without question.

Excellent hotel in superb position. Easy walk from train & bus stations (shuttle bus from airport). We walked all around the old town - very atmospheric and great just wandering down the old streets. Do visit the Jardins de la Fontaine and the Tour Magne if you have time. We were two couples travelling together; our room (no.11) on 2nd floor was a good size and had fantastic view of the amphitheatre. Our friends' room (no.106 on 1st floor) was a bit smaller and possessed a reasonable view but obscured by a tree. It is worth checking about availability of kitchen facilities - we were originally told that you were given use of kitchenette (locked cupboard) only if you were staying a week. We were staying 2 days: our kitchen cupboard (very well equipped for what it was)had been left unlocked, but our friends in No. 106 had to ask for a key, which was provided. Very friendly and helpful staff, ready with a smiling welcome and help with any requests. If you like Italian food, do try Le Daniele, Place d'Assas (10 mins walk from hotel). All in all, a really enjoyable visit and we would happily stay here again.
