My wife and I celebrated our fourtieth wedding anniversary there and really enjoyed our stay. It was excellent value for money with an excellent buffet breakfast. The location is well situated for the city and for touring the Brittany coastline. Highly recommended for low budgets
very good restaurant with an inventive menu. Free Internet access. In-room tea making facilities. All lights off door key switch no English TV channels, overpowering room air freshener
Location/parking. Comfort of the bed/mattress. Good breakfast Music at breakfast time - too loud and not restful (jazz).
Contemporary furniture, internet access, good bed, god lightning No tissue in the bathroom, no air conditioning, have to carry your luggage over a stair before accessing the elevator
Hotel was in central location, very close to restaurants and shopping. Decor was modern and rooms were comfortable. Air conditioning wasn't working (or at least I couldn't find a way of making it work).
Not bad for a city/port hotel. The breakfast was nice and we had a nice evening meal in the bar. The room was quite small and the bed very small for 2 people. It was strange to have no receptionist and to have to put in a door code but we found this was the norm at several of the hotels we stayed at during our holiday.
Nearby parking, Good standard ensuite, Not really suitable for drinks at the bar
The room was excellent size and bed really good quality. Bathroom was very spacious with a bath/shower. Staff has been overall very warm and welcoming and it felt like a family place. Wireless not available in the rooms
Luxury rooms, hospitality, quality restaurant and free internet available in rooms Difficult for parking during the evening
There is no car park. I had to park on the street in the centre of Brest and move my car by 9.00 next morning.
The hotel was in a convenient location - near the train and bus station, the chateau, and several good restaurants. Staff were friendly, helpful and courteous.
Super room, wifi, tv with english channels. Great choice at breakfast.
Location and service No mini bar in room and not spotlessly clean
Very clean but France is expensive. Brest is quite expensive, bier, food ...
Central position, accessible secure parking, reception staff particularly helpful Breakfast could have been more imaginative for 12 euros per person
The service was excellent, every person we dealt with was more than helpful and went out of their way to communicate in the best possible way with us. Service was prompt and efficient at all times. The hotel was spotless and the food of a good quality. Overall I would recommend this hotel to anyone and commend it on it's superior quality. There is a large difference in standard between two star and three star properties in this area of France Nothing
Nice and clean. Good location. Helpful staff. Helpful to non French speaking people.
Very well equipped rooms; quiet. Excellent breakfast.
Enjoyed stay. Way better than any 3 star hotels in paris I have stayed in.staff friendly and helpful
The pleasant and courteous staff. The clean, comfortable, air conditioned rooms. The excellent restaurant. The decor of the bar was great - liked the nautical theme and the copper fittings. Hotel was great overall.
Location, Staff , Rooms No mini bar!!!
Staff unwelcoming and unfriendly - seemed rather bored. The bar was not open and no tea or coffee was available.
Very friendly and helpful staff. The breakfast was excellent and dinner in the restaurant offered a good variety, reasonably priced and top quality
the hotel is in the middle of being refurbished and the rooms are lovely. Good central location for the area and town. As it is being refurbished the reception was a nightmare stepping over workmen tiling the floor during the day. I found it very hard to understand the charges for breakfast when there was no checks made on who went into the room where breakfast was served but they added breakfasts to my bill anyway for all four parties staying! How do they know if we had breakfast or not and in fact my daughter did not eat anything so I was not happy about being charged 12 Euros for her.
Excellent, Value for money and the staff are very helpful all round. Just being up graded with New rooms,ect to a very high standard.
Hotel is located in the middle of the center, 1 min from liberty square. 7 min. walk from the station. The personnel was very nice and spoke good English. They even let us check out later on request! The room was very proper and convenient. Absolutely nothing to complain! Very recommendable for a comfortable stay in Brest!
The location is great, in town center and even if the hotel dont offer parking it was easy to find on streets nearby. The room is newly renowated and is fresh and comfortable. Hotel staff were friendly and helpful. The room is small, no saftey box in the room and just a blanket (no cover)
the staff is verry nice and friendly. Also the location is great, right in the centre of town.
It met my expectations.
The front desk staff was efficient and our room was comfortable. I would say a good value price-convenience.
The room I stayed in was modern, spacious and very comfortable. Although near the stairwell, a separate lobby inside my door meant that I was not disturbed by people using the stairs. The breakfast room is the bar used by the jazz club in the evenings, and very atmospheric. I'd stay here again, especially if needing somewhere near the SNCF main train station.
Very nice, clean and comfortable and had obviously only just been done up Nothing I did not like although there was no WiFi facility
Location near rail sevice and town centre was very comvenient On Oct 25-6, i was mistakenly charged for 2 breakfasts+tax; because of language difficulties I was unable to explain this to the receptionist
The hotel exudes a fantastic atmosphere. The staff are friendly and helpful. The hotel host various forms of musical entertainment in their basement such as a disco and live bands. The hotel is perfectly situated amongst shops, cafes and bars. The tourist information office is on the same street as is the airport shuttle stop. The hotel room does not have tea or coffee making facilities and the hotel couldnt provide us with an iron.
very well located downtown Brestville, recently renovated, on top of one of the most alive jazz clubs in town mind to choose a room far from the pub on some days of afterhours parties lasting up to 6 am... Or spend the nite down there!
Staff were friendly and helpful. Room was clean and well serviced.
Wi-fi Rooms too small
great front desk staff and helpful restaurant staff there was mould in the shower stall. the room was a bit on the small side but acceptable. parking was free on a large empty field also used by the locals within a 2 minutes walk of the hotel well lit really is not a minus point but it was unsupervised. no signs of vandalism seen. no place to unload car in front of hotel
No Parking close
The coffee machine and the tea provided. No bathtub
The room was very, Very small. It would have been ok as a single room only.
It was close to Railway station and in Brest Grubby, would not stay again
My stay at Agena was a pleasant stay. I felt it was great value for the money I paid. As a woman travelling alone with heavy luggage, I would have appreciated some help with taking my luggage upto the 2nd floor. But other than this small issue, I was generally quite satisfied with the hotel.
Very convenient for railway station - just 2 - 3 minutes walk. Therefore convenient for navette to airport as well.
Comfortable design of the room, big size bed. Hotel is situated on the one hand closely to train station and on the other hand in silent place near park. No.
I liked the kindness and help of all the staff and their service. They were very generous with their time and made my stay excellent. The restaurant they suggested to me was exceptional with a full range of price. They offered everything in their possibility to make my stay special and a happy one. The breakfast was really good. The bread was very fresh and the croissants and pains au chocolat delicious. The hotel is situated in a very quiet area so I had a great sleep. It is also situated very close to the train station and I did not have to take a taxi to go to the train station. Finally, the hotel is situated next to the "quais" and offers beautiful promenades. At the same time, it is not far from the shops and the city centre. Everything was really nice. One suggestion would be to have more electrical outlets or having multiplugs. I had to unplug the TV to use my computer. However, I had lots of work to do so the TV may have been a distraction for my work. Maybe they had multiplugs at the reception but I did not ask (my fault).
It was central. I could walk everywhere of interest. Lovely part of town. Easy parking. no.
nothing special no hear drier
Very central location, near to the train and bus station, and short walk to the main shopping streets
The hotel is near to the center and to the train station
This hotel is located in the centre of the city: 5 minutes from the railway station, 10 minutes from the Castle and boat station.Well-wishing staff. In our booking confirmition was information that on Sunday reception of this hotel is closed till 16.00 PM, but it is closed till 18.00 PM! So when we came in some minutes past 17.00 we were ought to walk around the hotel till it open.
very nice hotel for a good price - big room with a bath! they were expexting us - and knew our name by arrival the elevator is as big as a telephone booth - so we had to cary our buggy with our little girl three floors up
very friendly staff, great location, excellent value for money
The room was large, the bed was comfortable and breakfast was good. The hotel staff was very helpful and nice. Very small elevator to the upper levels, but it was functional.
Staff were very helpful and friendly. The location was great. Strange smell in halls but the rooms were really good. Breakfast was adequate.
Good position, not far from the center and harbour. In our suite there was lovely furniture. The room for children was simple, but comfortable. No parking
Friendly staff. Hotel located in the city center, in front of a park, plenty of parking places in the street. Nice room with balcony. No staff in the hotel after 1:00 AM. Very small bathroom.
Comfortable older type hotel with very good facilities and excellent helpful and friendly staff. Close to city centre, station and port. Just a pity there is nothing much in Brest! Nothing
Proximity to rail station, proximity to downtown, ease of coming and going. No
All the staff at the Abalys are truely outstanding showing maximum care for their guests. I have never encountered better service in any hotel, even 5*, anywhere in the world. The rooms are adequate size, in good condition with flat screen TV which has UK channels. The hotel is in an excellent location close to the city centre and within easy walking distance of all requirements. Our parents who joined us on our trip thought the brekfast at E8.00 was expensive for a coisant and tea but they were not fans of the French morning diet. The only minor negative point during our stay was the fact we had a kettle but no cups/milk in our room. This was recitified immediate on our comment but was not returned the following day by cleaning staff.
The room was fabulous for a small hotel, the parking was across the road, the view looked across the gardens and out to sea Would have liked boiled eggs at breakfast
very nice staff
Very helpful staff
Staff were friendly and helpful. Rooms very comfortable. Central location.
Very friendly and helpful staff, good breakfast, clean rooms
The hotel is very well located - right near the city center. The staff was very helpful. The hotel's private parking is convenient, as the streets nearby don't have lots of free parking.
It was very clean, well appointed and the staff were very helpful Difficult stairs but we managed.
Clean and very comfortable room. The hotel is very well located just 5 mins from the main rail and bus stations. A great choice for the traveller on a budget.
Pleasant staff, access to room in the morning on arrival from the airport, good breakfast buffet, central location close to bus and train stations, lovely view over seafront. The en suite bathroom is far too cramped.
Friendly and well situated Very tiny lift
many restaurants around the hotel
The location is great. The construction of the tramway will still take another two years; however, the construction works are only from 08.00 until around 17.00 o'clock. Since these are times which I usually don't spend in the hotel, it was fine with me, i.e. it was quiet in the evenings and nights. Nice, modern furniture. Rooms are rather small, but fine. The female employees were all nice and helpful, but the only male employee I met was not. When checking out, he neither offered to help carrying my bag down the dark stairs nor did he wish a friendly good-bye. Bad service from this guy! A bit dissapointing when staff is unfriendly when cheking out...
Nice design, clean room, good facilities, good breakfast, good location despite the current construction, very nice and helpful staff
Friendly and helpful staff. Room very clean and with nice linen and towels. Good location. Not the fault of the hotel but access from the front door is limited due to roadworks and changes to the square in front of the hotel. Not good if one has a lot of luggage or children .
5-10mins walk from town centre, good value basic breakfast, free wifi, lcd tv in room, smiling staff, common areas bright and airy. very soft mattress. no shampoo in shower, thin transparent curtain (turn out the lights if you do not want to be on display at night). Peeling wallpaper in the toilet.
A quiet room on the garden, very clean, recent furniture, friendly staff. They could give more bathroom products (only 1 small soap for 3 days, no shampoo). And sound isolation isn't great unfortunately.
Basic but clean and tidy room. Toilet separate from bathroom. Adeqaute on street parking in adjoning streets. Nice fresh bread and croissants at breakfast. Easy walk to town and university hall (slighlty uphill) Thin walls, so noise travells from adjoining rooms. It would have been nice to have a kettle and coffee making facilities in room
I appreciated the ecologic policy of the hotel staff
ease of use and staff lack of daytime access to communal areas
alternative (new age), cute design, for young backpakers bed was ok, but not good; (fast and sneaky) moskitos
TV because it was raining there quite a lot. Not possible to check in between 11am-5pm (closed reception),Bed not comfortable
This hotel is very conveniently located directly opposite the train station in Brest.
Bathroom and tv good. Breakfast area poor. Food left out in open containers for several hours.
Good location Lift is tiny, really only room for 1 person and luggage unless
Near railway station.
Convenient location Double room hqd one glass; one set towels.
The room was very nice and spacious. Everything was fine and the room was very clean. The best is location - very close to a station and port, the Brest castle and other remarcable places.
good location, friendly staff, nice breakfast
24 hours reception, very helpful staff Most of the stuff didnt speak nor understand English, which was well, baffling.The location - if one is driving it's alright, but getting there with a public transportation is sort of an advanture
Service and cleanliness were excellent. I understand it is a budget hotel, but the rooms were too small. A dog in the hotel spoilt our sleep
Easy access to bus into city.Good value breakfast and evening meal more choice of TV stations,I could get just 1 station
Good option if you are looking for budget accomodation in Brest. Convenient if you have a car. The personnel was very friendly. Not very close to the downtown but there is a bus stop next to the hotel and in 20 minutes you can get to the city center. The room is OK for one person but for a couple it might be a little incommodious.
the big dog
Quick check-in, no hassles. Requests for a double bed and car parking space was not taken into consideration. No floor mat in the shower room which could pose a danger on wet floor.
Convenient location for touring, plenty of parking. Rooms comfortable but small. Breakfast room too small and not much choice. Own transport needed as quite far out of town.
The personal service of the manager, His initial welcome was very friendly and he was very helpfull `non
The friendliness of the staff and quick efficient service. There was not enough blankets on the bed.
Nicely located in the quieter part of Brest. Smart decor and very clean everywhere. large comfortable sitting area and good bar. Well recieved by friendly young informative staff, some also spoke very good English There are no signs for this hotel that I saw in Brest unlike almost all the other hotels so if you are in the central part of the city in a car it is very difficult to find. I phoned three times for directions as the city is in upheaval for road works. Breakfast is far too expancive à 14E!.
Staff helpfulness and friendliness Limited resources within it
This hotel was just perfect! The bed was SO comfortable and the staff was incredibly nice and helpful. It's also a pretty cute hotel - kind of art deco. I was there three nights for a conference and it was exactly what I needed. Super well located for exploring Brest too!
old style building spacious internet gave problems
The staff There should be screens on the window. I had an open window and my room had mosquitoes-and I had several bites.
Excellent Art Nouveau decor, well run, comfortable, central enough. We were a party of 9 flying 4 Avions Prives round Bretagne. A really nice 2 day stay at International (Brest). Pity about your hotel in Quimper. Very disapointing in comparison Absolutely none. Definite recommendation and we will fly in to visit Brest again one day.
The room was very nice.
Did not enjoy the experience at all !!!! Nothing was at all memorable of the hotel accommodation or location. Room was cold and uninviting. We were both glad to move on the following day. We, in the end, stayed for only one night instead of the anticipated two.
very frienly staff.
It was quiet, convenient and comfortable
Very friendly and calm environment, a good service standard, very satisfying breakfast buffet. Only 1 employee at the reception desk, means no possibility to have a quick service when in a hurry.!!!!!!
