    « Convenient and basic »

    This hotel is just steps from the river and city centre and 10 minute walk from railway station. Clean, quiet (if you have rooms on the back). Breakfast ok, not a huge choice but enough for many tastes. Wi-fi also good. Good for a biz stopover as was my case.

    « Handy stopover »

    Stopped over here en route to Caen. Centrally located and near the river. Underground parking and a central location allows for a convenient, hassle-free stay. Nice rooms, good breakfast and helpful staff. A highlight was being able to cross the road from the hotel in the evening and sit outside Le Cap Horn, a great bar/restaurant and very popular with the local populace. Great beer and the best burgers in town! Recommended.

    « Good Location in Picturesque Town »

    The hotel looks much better from the outside. Inside it is some 'budget' in nature. We had a large room with the panoramic view. The view towards the river was nice enough, and the large window was fun to sit around and watch the action below. The room was set-up for family occupancy, which being a couple we didn't need, but the extra space was nice. The only trouble was we were on the first floor and rooms above echoed to the noise of children running about. The bathroom was huge enough, but the shower was a massive disappointment - wimpish hot water pressure. The lift present an interesting feature for the hotel. Tiny - probably the smallest lift I have seen in a hotel. Put your suitcases in - press the floor number, then run the stairs to meet it on its arrival !!! Didn't bother with breakfast as there were a couple of better alternatives just down by the river (two mins walk away) Parking was easy enough and cheap with it, so no issues there, except you have to top-up in 2 hour chunks, but there is no reason to venture too far away that makes that a problem - the town is sweet, but small.

    « a centrally located hotel with good helpful staff. »

    A good hotel for travellers passing through to further resorts. Located centrally in town for a good selection of restaurants would also suit business people not looking for 4 Star accommodation. Rooms were clean, my wife and I shared a good sized double with an on suite which was ample. It was good for one night.

    « Great location. That is what you are paying for. »

    We have stayed in this hotel 5 times over recent years. Each time we have thought about booking somewhere else next time, and each time have ended up there because there was no alternative hotel so well located. Overpriced for the standard of facilities, air conditioning not possible to adjust, so room was hot and stuffy. (This happened last year as well, when the staff made a little show of trying to change it for us, but it still did not work.) Impossible to open the windows because of extreme traffic noise and fumes - although, in fairness, the sound proofing was very good. We did not have breakfast, but it seemed very expensive - (great little bakery just next door, doing pain au raisin and croissants to die for.)

    « Nice hotel, good location, French sizes »

    Nice hotel with clean and comfortable rooms. Located central town close ro nice restaurant open until past 23. Professional and simple checking and check out. Contrassegno: difficult parking and very narrow alleys. Overall a good stay.

    « Nice hotel good location »

    This place is fine for a night or two. We had quite a large room on the first floor which was comfortable and clean. Reception was efficient and friendly. The only problem is that the hotel car park was full and it was quite a walk to the recommended secure car park. The town itself is beautiful and well worth a visit.

    « Great location but basic hotel »

    This hotel is ideally located in the centre of town right next to the river and close to all amenities, with the exception of the railway station which is quite a step away uphill. Not the best of rooms though price perhaps reflected this however the shower was pretty hopeless and the noise from the road early in the morning a bit loud.

    « Nice quiet hotel »

    Stayed for three nights. Had a nice room. We were three sharing so we had an extra bed. No problem with the space.Bath room was cold but an extra efficient heater helped out. Bad pressure in the shower.Breakfast costed an extra 9 Euro, but was nice for being french. Had even boiled eggs:) Nice staff. All of the hotel was smoke free.Reception was closed after 10pm all days and closed 12am to 6pm on sundays.

    « 1 Night en-route stopover »

    Double room with a view over the street, fairly compact but with everything needed. Ensuite shower room. The hotel is one road away from the river so a two minute walk into the centre of Laval, there is a good bar/cafe on the corner the road open till late. Breakfast in the hotel was really good with a large selection to chose from (9 euros) but worth it. Parking is available in the basement for 5 euros. Would definitely recommend this hotel and would return.

    « Central, comfortable, excellent value »

    Perfect location, just a few minutes from the river, old town, shopping centre. Quite an old building, but the rooms have been recently renovated to quite a high standard, with nice bathroom fittings, lighting, and furniture. This is the third time we have stayed there and each time it was a good experience.The room was not huge, but for a budget standard double, it was better than most. and cheaper than many others we have stayed in. Excellent sound proof glazing, so although our room was on the front overlooking the busy road, there was hardly any sound. Likewise there was little sound from neighbouring rooms or hallway. The airconditioning in the room was not working properly but they did attempt to fix it. They have managed to squeeze a lift into the old stair well, but the limit of three persons probably refers to three very small individuals. Staff were extremely friendly and helpful.

    « Annual pilgrimage to the Le Mans 24 hours »

    I have been staying at this hotel for several years now. It is ideally located in Laval being 10 minutes walk to the railway station and five minutes to the main commercial centre of the town. Laval is only 40 minutes by train from Le Mans. The rooms are clean and the beds very comfortable. The hotel staff are very friendly and helpful. A good continental buffet breakfast is served in the morning offering an interesting and varied choice. The WiFi internet connection is fast with a reliable connection. Will be staying here again next year.

    « The opposite of Feng Shui »

    Laval is wonderful. Old cobbled streets with bars and food, lovely walks, beautiful river etc. This hotel is perfectly placed. Unlike the bed in my room. I almost fell over it as I walked through the door, it was like it was waiting for me to come burst through. The room continued to trick me. It has all the right ingredients. But somehow in the wrong place. Where there should be a mirror is a TV. The bathroom door too is in the wrong place, opening right next to the bath which separates the loo from the sink, about four strides from each other. But this is more of an observation than a moan. I had a deceptively roomy room. Not the greatest view, I'd have preferred to be facing the river, than French rooftops but they were nice enough. Breakfast was brilliant. The food was in the right place. Interestingly the breakfast room looks like it's been put together by a graphic design student. There's a lot of this in other French hotels. Maybe it's a clever way of looking good on TripAdvisor? Big lettering and bold stripes always make photos look great. Well done graphics guy. It works. But this hotel doesn't need to deceive. It's good, it's great value for money, the staff are impeccable and location perfect. Go to Laval and lap it up. You'll soon adjust to the French way of life and find that the anti Feng Shui thing is totally forgivable.

    « Comfortable and convenient stay in Laval »

    I was traveling on business, and stayed at the Hotel De Paris in Laval. The hotel staff was accommodating, and were helpful with my limited French. The hotel is conveniently placed near the center of town. There are a few good places to eat along the river that are a very short walk from the hotel. There is also a bakery and grocery right around the corner if you want to pick something up to eat in the room. The train station is a 15 minute walk from the hotel.

    « central location, not too many fringes »

    For a visit to the town of Laval, it is very central. Private parking for 6 cars which is free. Other parking possibilities in the near vicinity. No real place to stop in front to unload ! Reception is manned until midnight, afterwards entrance works with a code. Fantastic restaurant adjacent. Rooms a bit small, but adequate, nicely decorated and clean. Choice between shower or bath. Bed good quality. Rooms on third floor have double windows which means silence while you sleep. Elevator has a curious shape and only two persons can get in at the same time with (some) luggage. Breakfast a bit dissapointing at 9,50? extra because meager in choice. But paying 61 ? for the night in a single room there's really no reason for complaints. Free Wifi works superfast btw.

    « Back here again... »

    I have stayed at this hotel several times over the years. It is one stop away going West from Le Mans on the train and is very convenient for me for my annual pilgrimage to the 24 hours of Le Mans. The hotel is in an excellent location close to the river with shops, bars and restaurants close by. The railway station is between five and ten minutes walk. The hotel rooms are very quiet, clean and comfortable and the hotel staff have always been very helpful and friendly. This year's trip to Le Mans was made with three friends and they were all very happy with my choice and location of hotel.
