Best Western Hotel Charlemagne

4.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

This hotel was a pleasant surprise. It was very quiet, clean and friendly. I would stay here again in a heartbeat!

We liked the room and the hotel. The staff was really nice. The only thing that bugged us was that, we asked the receptionist to recommend a restaurant for us to have our Christmas Eve dinner. She sent us to this lousy buffet outside of the city. It costed us about 40 euro on taxi and the food was the worst we've had in France. We couldn't understand why anyone who ever recommend such place to anyone for Christmas eve dinner! But oh well. I guess people have different idea of what's good. I'd recommend the hotel but would advice not ask the receptionist for restaurant recommendations!

I don't know on what basis they grant stars to the hotels. But according to my own experience this hotel was a 3star+. There were no locker and minibar in the room. Some of the rooms are not yet renovated. They gave us an old room with a very small bed (for tow people). When I complained, they immediately changed our room to a pleasant one. The room we got was nicely decorated with a comfortable bed. Very nice staffs at the reception.
