Hotel Du Congres

3.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

The place looks really nice inside, my room was extremely small but most European rooms are. It had easy access to everything I needed so I didn't mind since I wasn't in my room very much!

Quite uníque hotel in a big city. It is difficult to find 4-bed hotel rooms, and this one was large, well located, and at a reasonable rate.

The Hôtel du Congrès offers good value for the money. The best feature by far is the location, within fifteen minutes of the Central Rail Station and the major museums.

I really wanted to give this place a great rating for what it is. Its clean, comfortable enough, location is nice, and the price is solid. There is really no character and when in the room you feel like you could be anywhere in the world. The room was also very small but fine for someone just travelling, staying for a couple nights. Anyway, thats what was in my head to write when I first unpacked and took the room in... By about midnight was when things changed THIS IS THE LOUDEST HOTEL I HAVE EVER STAYED IN. Im a young backpacker type, Im no snob, and have stayed in $3 a night hostels around the world. But this place was LOUD. The walls are made of paper. All night as people returned to there rooms and then from about 7AM you could hear every word said in the hall and even worse when a door closed or bag knocked against the hallway wall and such the entire room would shake like an Earthquake. You know, I made it through, it didnt ruin my trip but it was extremely loud until about 1AM and then 7AM to about 9. To be fair I was close to the elevator which had a lot to do with the noise in terms of talking as the elevator was very slow and people hung out there for a few minutes chatting but the worst was the door closings. I mean, like bus had hit the building sometimes. Overall, maybe on a weeknight, ask for a room away from the elevator, and if the price is right I would recommend this place for solo or young travelers who are tired of hostels but still have a budget. It is very clean and newly remodeled so if you think you can take the noise go for it.

+ free simple breakfast + free wifi!!! + lovely old building + safe area, afew nearby restaurants, convenient stores + good hotel considering price of $114 Very simple accomadations. Small tv, did not seem to have heat or ac, interiors somewhat worn.
