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. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"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!
"Avant-garde architecture, bordering on absurd. Really fun & quirky. Very warm & AC struggled."
07/25/13 DiscerningTraveler10 Albuquerque, New Mexico, USA
Great location! Thoughtful staff. Very clean. A real bargain too. Breakfast in hotel €14 was a good value also. Fresh juices outstanding. Avant-garde architecture, bordering on absurd. Really fun & quirky. Very warm & AC struggled. I have no hesitation to stay again.

10/21/12 fatbear2000 Oxford, United Kingdom
I recently stayed 3 nights at La Perouse whilst on business in Nantes. The hotel is in a very central location with many shops, bars and restaurants, as well as most of the places of interest, within walking distance. However, some current road works made it difficult for Taxis to stop outside the hotel. Check-in was extremely swift and friendly, no need to bother taking credit card or passport details as security ! The receptionist happily made taxi reservations each night for the following morning, and they actually turned up promptly, unlike some issues my colleagues in other hotels faced. Breakfast was excellent, but as noted by other reviewers, the dining area is small and on one morning there was no more space for some guests until others finished. The room was comfortable, with a trendy transparent storage unit to hang clothes. Free WiFi was available although it was difficult to find a suitable power point for my laptop. Eventually I decided to unplug the bedside lamp. My room had a mini-bar, although the fridge door was under the TV and so close to the table that it was not possible to fully open the door. Therefore I wasn’t sure of all the contents of the mini-bar, but I think they were all soft drinks. The bathroom had some unique features. Firstly the design of the shower floor means that a towel had to be laid down to prevent the whole bathroom from flooding. Also, the modern bathroom sink did not have a plug so a lot of water was wasted for a wet shave. A hairdryer was provided, but no iron/ironing board. All rooms are very close to the lift, but the corridor was not lit, and initially I did not spot where the light switch was. However, once I knew where the switch was it was not a problem. Like a previous poster I also faced the riddle of how to lock the room door whilst still requiring the key to be in the slot for power. Fortunately the lights stay on for a short while after the key is removed from the power slot ! There is no bar or restaurant in the hotel, but this is not an issue as there are so many options close by. Unlike the check-in experience, check-out took quite a while. With just one person on reception it took a while to deal with all the business people trying to check out at 7.30am. Overall though, my stay at La Perouse was positive and I would stay there when I return to Nantes
"Half-decent city centre hotel by French standards"
10/21/12 ajt_austria Wolfsberg, Austria
If I reviewed this hotel by anything other than typical city-centre French standards, it would get a lower rating. The hotel is in the city centre within walking distance of just about everything including lots of restaurants. The hotel is 'chic spartan' which could come across as quirky and in need of renovation - but hey I drift away from how I said I would compare this hotel. The hotel is centred around the lift, so much so, that even the street entrance front glass, sideways sliding door (told you it was quirky), faces the lift. Check-in was quick and friendly, but check-out took a long time, with the queue to the reception snaking past the lift entrance, causing quite a bit of fun as people stepped out with cases directly into a queue of people, with cases. All the rooms in the hotel are within 3 metres of the two-door lift, accessed by corridors lit only by low lighting (quirky again?). The rooms themselves try to be modern with glass shelving but come across more like an office. My bathroom had an ugly glass trough for a sink (chic?) which never seemed to allow the toothpaste to use the plug until you switched the tap off. The shower was ceiling mounted, with the controls underneath it. I never mastered the ability to avoid getting doused in cold water, as I switched the shower on, no matter how I tried. I also do not understand why most french hotels dispense with the notion that a shower curtain is a good thing. One thing I noticed is the fact that the walls aren't particularly thick and was woken up both nights; once by an amorous couple and the other by someone dragging their bags to the lift (one of the disadvantages of all rooms facing the lift in combination with wooden floors - but hey, its chic) The breakfast choice was good by french standards, but the number of seats and tables was woefully inadequate for the number of guests and I found myself waiting for a table on the first day. The room is simply too small. I'd rather the hotel have a few more tables rather than the white leather loungers that are neither useful nor practical (chic though!). There is no bar or restaurant other than the buffet breakfast area. There are plenty of restaurants and bars within a very short walk though. When I stayed, there was a lot of work going on in the city but once done, the hotel will benefit from being in a nicely modernised area, with a tram stop right outside the door. Normally I would give a hotel like this a 2 or 3, but given its competition I have, with regret, had to score it higher.
