We recently traveled to Nantes to visit family and stayed at l'hotel la Perouse. We were very pleased with our choice. The hotel is modern (minimalist), immaculate and very pleasant. The staff is fluent in English and couldn't have been friendlier or more helpful. We chose a room on the tramway side and found it to be quiet. We enjoyed being able to look out the window and see the activity of downtown Nantes. My husband has a mobility issue and being close to the tramway stop was very important to us. We look forward to staying here again and would recommend it without hesitation.

Price of the room quite high for what it is. Good breakfast, even very good, but not included in the price indicated, which makes for a rather bad surprise in the end. This should be explicitly included.

Hotel La Perouse is easy to recommend. The decoration is new, clean and modern throughout. Our room was more spacious than I expected, the bathroom was particularly modern and the overhead shower was powerful. The staff were very helpful and spoke good English, and all areas were very clean. The location is good, with all the main attraction being just about walkable. Good value for the price as well. No negatives.

Les chambres sont confortables même si elles semblent un peu petite. Il n'y a pas de place de perdue et il n'y a rien à redire à la propreté des chambres et des salles de bain. L'hotel est de plus tres bien situe, à proximité du tramway mais aussi a 10mn à pied du centre ville et de ses attractions (chateau, place Graslin, commerce) et à 20mn de la gare.

Je n'ai jamais été aussi bien accueilli dans un hotel, la jeune personne de la réception nous a non seulement très aimablement accueillis mais nous a beaucoup conseillés pour notre séjour. Le petit déjeuner est extra et nous avons beaucoup aimé l'expo de tableaux et de sculptures.Par contre, arrivé sur le palier, l'impression n'est pas top. La configuration fait qu'il n'y a pas d'ouverture et que c'est plutôt sombre. Alors, une peinture claire, et propre, serait plus agréable. Là, c'était plutôt glauque!! Dernier point négatif, après avoir répondu à la femme de ménage que ma chambre n'était pas encore libre pour le ménage puisque je faisais des allers-retours vers la voiture pour charger les bagages, j'ai eu la désagréable surprise de trouver la chambre grande ouverte avec ce qui me restait de bagages dedans, et la literies défaite. Ménage commencé et personne à l'horizon! Mon impression reste positive et si j'en ai l'occasion, je reviendrai. Ne serait-ce que pour la qualité de l'accueil et le petit déjeuner.

"A future classic? "
03/18/15 IsaJ1204 Brighton, United Kingdom
The first thing you notice when you step down - a sloping ramp takes you down to reception - in La Pérouse hotel is the design. Every clever detail, every architectural quirkiness screams 1990s. The bedroom struck me as "style over substance" a bit, with a glass wardrobe, no shutters but padded covers on the windows and a soft greenish bathroom light which makes you look delicately unwell first thing in the morning. The "period" design is also noticeable in the wear and tear, with some stained areas of the glass mosaic in the bathroom or fingerprints on the doors. However, these are my only gripes with this place - and they are very minor. First of all, staff welcome was second to none, the breakfast was tasty (but avoid cornflakes) and I found myself in a perfect location. Of course, the period design and its arresting features is something everyone remembers. Dozen of unique details make this hotel an elegant, understated place to stay in Nantes. A lick of paint and a good scrub of the wetroom would freshen it up and make it a truly memorable experience.

Good hotel in a convenient location. Well serviced by tram and bus. Rooms are comfortable and clean. breakfast selection is good and fresh. Reception very helpful (can also supply tram tickets if needed). Internet extremely unreliable and when available, extremely slow! If you need to work at night, this may be an issue.

"Charming modern stylish hotel -- very central"
07/21/14 Azevgui Montreal, Canada
A nice stay: very attentive staff, flexible hours, copious and tasty breakfast & overall interesting interior design. Centrally located, close to the old town and tramway lines. Comfortable bedrooms (although some of the "design furniture" are better to look at than to actually use them. :-)

Hotel la Perouse room 702 top floor facing away from the main road. The quirky glass sink does not drain and water pools either side of the drain outlet. Bedroom and bathroom were the biggest I had seen so far during our month long stay in France Parking station across the road was convenient. Padded covers over the windows. Would have preferred curtains that could be opened and closed. The padded covers could be partially or totally removed by undoing fasteners. The Bang & Olufsen TV was OK but seemed dated and the picture was not sharp. The room could have used some paint. The walls and ceiling did not look fresh. The door jamb had suffered somewhat from multiple collisions with suitcases. Other than that the room was clean. Our room did not have aircon or so I thought. I found the controls inconveniently hidden in a corner of the room accessible to be read and for operation by moving a large wooden side table or by crawling under the table. Unfortunately I found it too late to learn whether it was effective. The windows only opened a crack and it would be a toss up between ventilation or shutting out noise. Wifi worked well in our top floor room. Breakfast was great. The hotel was full and some guests had to wait for a table as the breakfast area was small. I would stay here again.

"Conventiently located avarage hotel"
02/15/14 62Willem The Netherlands
Remarkable "design" hotel, starting with the art in the lobby welcoming you. Reception is efficient, friendly and helpful. Rooms look rather cheap despite designer flair. Lighting provides a cold atmosphere. No curtains, but flaps strangely fixed to the window frames. Beds are basic with not so comfortable matrasses and plain blankets. Shower floods the bath room. The shower head was so calcified that it was a challenge to wash off the shampoo. Internet in the room is free, but dead slow. Breakfast is OK, but the breakfast room is very small, so chances that you have to wait at peak hour

"Location, Location, Location, and a very nice hotel."
12/10/13 Jim255 Surrey
I stayed at this hotel on 07/08 December 2013. The hotel is very centrally located in a largely pedestrianised area. There is a tram stop right outside. The taxi from the station was under €10 and the driver used an entry pass to lower a barrier and drop us on the pavement right outside the door! The reception is airy and there are interesting modern art pieces dotted about. The reception staff spoke very good English, and were friendly and helpful. On taking the small elevator to the fifth floor, I was presented wil a small unlit corridor. Energy saving timer switches are used, and there is no natural light. There appears to be only four or five rooms on each level. The room itself was very pleasant. Solid wood floors and plain white walls. the furniture is contemporary, and more information on it's design (along with the rest of the hotel) is available on a dedicated channel on the TV. The bathroom was a wet room, and had LED lighting and a rather special glass trough-type basin, The shower has a fixed ceiling outlet as well as a hand-held shower head. The wardrobe was made from glass, and there was a small desk. The TV sat on a small mini-bar which contained fruit juices and water, but sadly no coke or similar sparking soft drink. I found the room was a little warm, and the A/C didn't seem to offer adequate cooling, but it was possible to open the window. This may not be ideal in the summer, or when there is noise outside. Speaking of which, there will be some street noise mainly due to the excellent location. I have a few other small gripes about the room. The TV is very small, and the only English channels available appeared to be CNN and BBC World News. There were a couple of marks on the bed sheets, and the bed itself was quite firm. In summary, this is a very well located hotel, offering excellent value for money, and with very good staff. I would stay there again. Recommended.

"Quirky hotel with fantastic staff"
12/10/13 steersy73 London, United Kingdom
I stayed here over the weekend 7/8 December with my wife, and we had some friends also staying in the hotel. We loved the quirky "art" installations in reception and thought they really caught the eye on entry and set some expectations for the equally interesting rooms. The front of house staff (and indeed all the staff we encountered) were professional, courteous and friendly and a real credit. Rooms: Our room was clean, tidy and the bed was comfortable. My wife found the mattress a little hard and I found the room a touch too warm, however we both slept well, which is all I really want from a hotel bed. There has been mention in other reviews of the fixtures and fittings, we found the modern look and feel was lovely, although the "curtains" were odd. The location is again, fantastic, Central to most things we wanted to see and the staff were happy to provide a map and point out places of interest. Also as previously mentioned, do ask for a quiet/back room as the trams do rattle along at a fair rate at the front. Price was excellent as we book in advance. I can't comment on the breakfast as it seemed a little expensive so we ate out. In summary, we will be returning to Nantes and we will definitely be staying here again, can't recommend it enough.

"Pretty smart hotel, very style over substance though!"
09/04/13 uncledavey80 London, United Kingdom
There is a lot that is good about this hotel, but also a few major things that drag it down. Maybe I'll start with location - excellent! You can access everything easily from its central location. There is a major tram stop outside that can take you north or south, and you aren't far away from the east-west intersection, which you can then take to see sights on the river, or Les Machines de l'Ile de Nantes. The centre of the city, with many enticing bars, cafes and restaurants, is just round the corner, and it is a few minutes walk to the Place Royal, while also a short walk from more bars, restaurants and sites near the canal. Parking comes at a cost, and is across the road, and the hotel is fairly difficult to access by car, weirdly. But you can pretty much walk to everything. The hotel bills itself as an architect's hotel, and it is impressive, architecturally, externally. Inside, it seems very small. Hallways are dark and unappealing, the hotel's entrance is designed poorly, rooms suffer from excess heat in summer, and as much as I love the transparent wardrobe on wheels, or the aesthetic wooden desk chair, or faux leather single seat - nothing in the room works! The wardrobe is too small for more than one person, and the wheeling open idea is an unnecessary difficulty, the desk chair is uncomfortable and impractical in every way, the single seat also uncomfortable, the desk is not best use of space, fairly rubbish TV, air con doesn't work if you open the window, but then doesn't work satisfactorily when it's closed, bathroom looks plush but despite a shaving mirror it is not best lit for shaving, and the shower has a tendency to flood whole bathroom a little. Plus, the door to the bathroom is not a designed-for-purpose door, so doesn't close properly, which means you will share an unparalleled intimacy with your partner/friend that you had never thought you would. All the fixtures and fittings also feel....cheap! Which proves it is not a fancy, trendy, modern, cutting-edge boutique hotel at all, but a pretender. Talking of cheap, it isn't. It was relatively expensive when I booked late-on. But it gauges its price well in the local market. Personally, I think you would probably be better off going for either the Mercure at a marginal increase, and additional comfort, or saving some money and staying at the Ibis, with everything brand standard and normal. Service. Well, the reception staff were really nice and helpful. Breakfast was frankly rubbish, and very expensive for what you get. A great disappointment to be honest. And everything is left out and not replaced, so unless you are first in (which others have complained is full, I did not find it to be) then you have half of what was available. Limited cooked items, warm yogurt, bad coffee, and the whole thing unappealing. The patisseries were especially poor. Do yourself a favour - go across the pavement to the breakfast cafe, or go to a patisserie for next to nothing, it will be much better. The hotel has no on-site spa or leisure facilities, but you get free access to a local gym! This is actually really good. I train a lot and, although their weights equipment is not exactly extensive (it is France), I could actually do some holiday workouts! And they have a really nice sauna which nobody seems to use. The staff and gym-goers were really friendly too (it is France), and it made me feel a bit more part of Nantais life. The gym is a short, leisurely and enjoyable walk away from the hotel. I did find that, when my room's air-con wasn't working, it caused massive problems. They fixed it after 3 or 4 days. But by then half my stay had been unbearable. I couldn't sleep at night, opened the window, which barely opens, and then had the sound of people trying to continue their party, or homeless people shouting, or a fight breaking out, till pretty early in the morning (3/4am on a weeknight). I was seriously not amused. But they did fix it, and then it was responsive as well, after that. But I get the impression this is a regular problem. In summary I find this hotel average. It looks awesome, and when you show people photos of your room they will think you were in a really cool, chic hotel. But when you look closer in real life, nothing is what it seems (including advertising free parking and then changing it when I arrived). It is not very relaxing, though the bed was pretty comfortable, it's certainly not a room to spend much time in. But location is very good, and it is round the corner from some good bars, and easy to access tourist attractions. And price is the decider I would think. If it's short notice, this may still be affordable, but if you're booking in advance I would spend a little bit more on a nicer place. If my stay had not been a week long, the air-con situation for the first 3 nights would have made this a Very Very Very Poor rating.

"City Centre hotel that's not ripping you off"
08/29/13 Blellum Duns, United Kingdom
Great location. Accessible by taxi, bus and tram - and on foot. Busy area but it IS a city. Breakfast ok, rooms simple and functional. I won't comment on the "art" in the foyer... Would stay here again...

"Central Location is great for Touring - Lousy for Sleeping"
08/17/13 TravelYogiD Palma de Mallorca, Spain
My family and I had 1 night in Nantes and were thrilled to have this centrally located super modern recommended hotel. In fact. the location for our walking around the city was perfect and we were very impresses with the city overall. For the hotel, the staff was super friendly at check in and helped with maps and ideas... The rooms were very simple and initially we had a hard time telling if it was cheap of modern :) We decided on the latter since all the cool glass shelves and bathroom fixtures. The breakfast buffet was well worth it to fill up for the day. However, as a noise sensitive person, I had a hard time sleeping with all the busses and trams just on the street below us! I can recommend the hotel and also recommend that you ask for a room NOT on the street side... then you'll be much happier!
