You probably will not find this level of quality for 40-50 euros. Good views, calm environment, Spanish speaking staff.Breakfast is not rich. Rooms are clean. Check in till 19:00, but they can leave keys and give you pass code to enter. You need to call first.

To set the scene clearly : this is not a place to remember. The hotel scene in Amelie-les-bains is quite poor, and this appeared to be one of the better places, according to previous reviews. Room are basic, almost spartan, I would say. After 19h00 in the evening, there is really nothing anymore, not even a reception... Bar opening hours... More

A nice building close to the thermal activities and the city of Amelie Les Bains.Very good view on the mountains and the river very close. The rooms and the apartments are quite new and modern, many with a small but useful balcony. Nice helpful staff and good breakfast room. A couple of remarks though: The kitchenette is poorly equipped and... More

Hard to find, at the edge of town on a nice spot over the river. Ample parking in this not very attractive building (don't get fooled by the "tower" picture in the folder!). Not the friendliest reception, unable to help on all problems (light bulb missing, we will get one for you tomorrow!), no WiFi, all allocated spots taken (too... More

I'm sure this hotel is fine for those who wish to use it as a stopover. We stayed for a week and only got fresh towels and the bed changed on one occasion and that was because we asked. The hotel was verging on empty for most of the week and yet the room we were allocated was at the... More

Although not located right in town, it is easier to stay here for the ample parking. Great clean & tidy rooms with lovely balconies that look over the river. The rooms have air conditioning or you can open the balconies door for a natural breeze. The breakfast is great. There is a laundry room with a washer and dryer at... More

This hotel could have ticked all the boxes but never quite did. We were told on arrival that we had entered through the wrong door, a warm welcome it was not. Then we given a twin bedroom when we had specified a double. The receptionist checked the booking then stated that no double was now available and that was that.... More

One night stop with family en route. We had the pair of rooms (no one room solution for four) with turrets and view/sound of the River Tech from balconies which we all liked.

We stayed here for an overnight stop and found it a clean and friendly place to be with decent sized rooms. It is by the river, which you can walk down to and have a paddle, and a short walk from the town. The restaurant was not open but the manageress booked us a table at a good restaurant in... More

Rooms are pleasant and those at the back overlook (and overhear) the Tech river which was wonderful. Rooms had balcony and kitchenette which made up for the dismal restaurant scene in town as we did not want to drive. Common areas a bit drab, but we were there out of season.

“Avoid the turret rooms on second floor and check a double has been booked if requested. Definitely book garden view”

“Ask for the turret rooms; corner one best as double window aspect and balcony helps let the breeze through on warm nights although there is an aircon solution.”
