Small, pleasant historic hotel.

Posted 26-Mar-2014
Pros: I liked that is was such a small place - a bit idiosyncratic - and rich with historical flavor.
Location: It is right by their light rail system - which is very easy to use - and compared to most US systems - theirs is very appealing.
I stayed here while visiting my son who was taking his semester abroad in Grenoble. It's a very convenient location - right next to the light rail system. The room was - as expected - quite small - but just fine. The staff was helpful and genial. And while I was at the Museum of the French Resistance (highly recommended) - I learned that this hotel had been used as a headquarters by both Nazis and Italian commanders during the occupation. I assume those guys could have stayed any place they wanted - and they picked the Gambetta. They offer parking in their private garage - but it is very very tight quarters - and my rental car was mid sized - so it was harder than solving a Rubic's cube puzzle and very time consuming to maneuver my car in and out. If you have a big car - look for another solution.

Great hotel - reception help is left to be desired

Posted 27-Feb-2014 on Hotels.com
The hotel it's self is great, well located easy to get to by taxi from the train station around €10, ordering a taxi from the hotel to the airport the next morning was an insanely tedious task, no quote no understanding just time and book, and it took me 20 minutes for reception to understand what I wanted, its around €100 to the airport but the shuttle times are so awkward it seemed worth it.

Mériterait un rafraichissement général

Posted 16-Mar-2014 on Hotels.com
Chambre spacieuse et confortable, literie correcte, mais insonorisation insuffisante (bruit du couloir, des chambres voisines etc.. Odeur désagréable dans le hall d'entrée et décoration vieillotte et dépassée. Petit déjeuner juste correct (manque une vraie baguette fraiche). Mais pour le prix, c'est plutot correct
