Hôtel Marquis de La Baume4.0 out of 5.0
Recent guest reviews
This was a find! Amazing interior with surreal staircase, charming reception staff, and an airy, spacious room. We ate supper at Magnolia - yards away - as suggested by the hotel, and it was one of the best meals we had on this trip. Everything, including the station, is within easy walking distance. Hope we return.
The common areas and staff were lovely, but the room was simply funky. Sad maintenance attempts with bad patches, especially plumbing fixes. Hard to say what the wall to wall carpet was made of, but it needs to be replaced. It had a nice proximity to the history core, but the street was a little edgy. Wish we had stayed closer to the Arena which I had assumed would be too touristy, but was in fact more elegant.
We came down from paris and stayed 2 days what a great and beautiful place the owner is so nice and helpful. Great walking town with lots of shops and sites that are so historical . The mall is a taxi ride running around $15-$18 us dollars . You really don't have to go the main area has a thousand shops ! Great food the people are very friendly as well prices are very good . Well worth the train ride if you book you train ride early the better for pricing . There is a charge of $ 14 eur for breakfast .
Very good location central to everything. Good hotel, room Was spacious nice and clean. Staff were helpful and friendly. Not sure why other reviews were bad! Tip: catch a shuttle Bus from the airport to the station it's cheaper than a taxi. Overall, nice hotel central to all the attractions. Would definitely recommend it.
Centrally located and a little difficult to find, and it doesn't look inspiring from the outside, however don't be fooled, this place is beautiful on the inside with very traditional architecture. Room was small, spotlessly clean, with an extremely comfortable bed, more than adequate for our three night stay. Pleasant, friendly and helpful staff added to a very enjoyable stay.
Not the best hotel I've ever stayed at but that's not the fault of the Hotel its the location that lets it down unfortunately. We only stayed for one night on our way through to the airport but I am so glad that was the case. The noise is terrible! People shouting screaming outside the hotel until 12am that night and then at 3am someone decided to play a whole album of some unknown French artist at top volume until around 4am!!! no sleep and then we had to get up at 5am for our flight. Bloody awful!! A word of warning it has no parking for a car at all. You have to use the nearest multi-story carpark which is quite a walk from the hotel. Not nice a 5am when carrying baggage.
We stayed in a superior double room £101 for the night. Bits of the hotel, such as hall ways could do with slick of paint but our room was clean & lovely. Shower room looked brand new. I loved the view out of our window to the courtyard it was beautiful. The reception staff didn't speak English but don't understand why others complained about this as it is in France. Location was great & there is so much to do in Nimes I would definitely recommend it but would say you need at least 3 days to see it all
I've just read the 2 very recent reviews which were very bad and must say that our experience was totally different. The hotel is somewhat shabby from the outside but once inside it is a beautiful building. The receptionist was incredibly polite and helpful, we had a good chat and got some good advice as to where to visit and eat. Both of his recommendations for restaurants were excellent ( see separate reviews ). Our room was a good size, much bigger than what we generally get in France, high ceilinged and very clean throughout. If there were problems in the past with cleanliness then we certainly didn't notice any issues so seemingly previous comments have been noted and acted upon. The bed was exceptionally comfortable and the en-suite roomy. The only reason I can't give this hotel a five is because the shower is hand held and there is no curtain to stop water spraying everywhere. The en-suite had been beautifully refurbished and it is crazy that more thought hadn't been given to the shower. Overall a great choice and well located for the arena and the countless restaurants and bars. We'd certainly stay here again if we return to Nimes.
The hotel room and bathroom were dirty, the carpet was absolutely filthy. The wifi in the room did not work, when I asked about the problem I was met with fake amazement and no help. After I had read other reviews my suspicions were confirmed that there was no proper wifi, as other peole had complained about this.
Greeted by a rude man who continued to yell and throw things talking in French (yelling) ! So rude at check in and when asked about the safe in the room he went into a tantrum !!! Ourself and our friends checked out right away and found a new hotel ! Never again and this hotel is located in a horrible location ! I could go on and on about the conditions but it's so upsetting !
