« Great great service - and don't miss the restaurant »

Stayed here to celebrate my husband's 70th birthday. We booked the Deluxe Junior Suite which has its own private rooftop terrace. Although we couldn't use it extensively - being November and a little cold - the terrace had great views, we did sit out there amongst the plants and it made the room feel much more spacious. The room itself had a huge bath and walk-in shower, though the latter did partly drain into the bathroom which I imagine is not the intention! The staff here are excellent. It was extremely busy during our stay but all staff were unfailingly welcoming and polite. We booked the valet parking which I would really recommend, the one-way city streets are very complicated, and the man who delivered back our car and collected our luggage deserves a special mention for his great service and the time he took carefully explaining the fastest route out to the road to Caen. The first night we ate in the hotel restaurant, again excellent service and really original dishes. I don't usually eat dessert but as it was a special occasion I chose the souffle, which was absolutely delicious. We enjoyed a glorious bottle of white burgundy too. We asked the hotel to recommend a restaurant for the second night as it was a Sunday, they booked us into La Taverns de la Marine. This is an absolutely first class fish restaurant which, on a Sunday night in mid-November, was absolutely bursting with customers - which says it all. We enjoyed the spa area, which is small but relaxing. We didn't have any spa treatments as they were full by the time we decided to book up, but there is a lot to do in the area. The hotel is very well situated in an area of shops and there are some splendid food shops nearby, as well as the old town. Another time we might go there by rail as the train station is an easy walk away.

everything at the hotel, ambience, staff and service was great. My only issue was that our room faced the garden and the amount of cigarette smoke that came in through the open window was appalling.

I have to say the service provided by all members of staff in this hotel was excellent. Location is very good and rooms very clean and comfortable. I would happily recommend it and would most certainly stay there again.

« The best place in town »

This is probably the best place to stay in Rennes. It is not easy to find, navigation does not works. Reception and room fine, although the carpeting is old fashioned. Modern impression, fine restaurant and breakfast. Professional service. Can highly recommend.

« Excellent price/quality in Rennes »

This is certainly the best in town. Professional, friendly service. Modern setting. Fine soundproof room. Restaurant excellent . The only minor points of critics are the difficult finding of the place, navigation does not works. Place a sign at the entry of the street where officially you are prohibited to drive! The carpeting in the room is suboptimal , after 10 guest you will see the traces they left.

« This is a lovely hotel in central Rennes. »

We loved staying at this hotel. It is centrally located but quiet on the courtyard side. Just one complaint. The shower never got hot and was sometimes on the cold side. It made for a very quick shower.

« Beautiful hotel, and a good stay. Ruined by a payment issue. »

Great food, the breakfast was lovely and the food and beverage staff polite and very efficient: Beautiful facilites, the decor is simply superb. The spa is absolutely stunning. Left very happy, until I checked my bank statement. Booked this via the app, living in the UK I mostly travel within England, so I booked the stay with my British details. This has never been an issue before and should not be, as the card details are used in order to guarantee the reservation. When booking it was made clear that my card would be used to guarantee the reservation, or will be charged in full in case of a no show or late cancellation. Completely normal procedure with Accor hotels worldwide. However Balthazar decided to pre-authorise my card, without me present or my authorisation for the room stay and an extra €100 (I never agreed to an online C/I), the day before my arrival. Strange as you can cancel up to 2pm on the day of C/I with no fees. This was not a prepaid rate, nor was the hotel full, so what was the real reason behind this? Apart from blatant disregard for the guest. When I brought this up to reception after my departure, they told me it was to check my card was valid. Right, but why not void the transaction when you realised it went through? Throughout my stay, not a single member of staff informed me that they had taken this payment. When it came to C/I I was just made sign a paper with no explanation. I thought it was because I was an Accor employee and was trusted by my fellow colleagues. Upon C/O I payed with a French credit card, like i had intended to the whole stay. The receptionist still did not tell me about the preauthorisation, or request my British card in order to release it. Now I've got a charge of £200 just pending in my account for another 14 days, and on top of that bank fees. When I complained about this I was told it was my error with no apology. The word désolé was used in the email, but that was clearly not heartfelt. In all my years of hospitality I've never been made feel so inferior. Why book a hotel in the company you work for, if you can't afford it? The reception staff clearly need to be trained on preauthorisation on debit cards, and basic human decency. Very upset by this and has completely changed my perception of this hotel.

« Lovely Hotel in the City Centre with Excellent Staff »

The staff was excellent at this hotel - from the moment I arrived until I departed I felt like a cherished guest. My room was on an upper floor and very quiet, just like I had requested. It had all the amenities I needed including coffee maker and tea kettle plus welcoming gift of very tasty cookies. I dined at the hotel's restaurant and enjoyed a modern French meal of two light courses of perfectly cooked fish. Dessert was a rich but delicious chocolate mousse. The wine list had plenty of top notch wines including some in half bottles which I always appreciate when I travel solo.

« Total satisfaction with the hotel »

This was our third visit to this hotel and we were very happy with the room which had been recently redocorated and was in excellent condition. The welcome and professionalism of reception was good, and the hotel retains a very calm ambience. Breakfast was as good as always. We like Rennes and we will return again..

« The James Bond of Hotels »

We celebrated a night of our honeymoon here and boy were we impressed, we got a free upgrade to a junior suite and loved every minute in the spa! No complaints here apart from breakfast was extraordinarily expensive £50 euros for us both, we went for galettes around the corner instead. Costing a total of £15 euros including breakfast cider ha! :) Thank you Balthazar Hotel.

« Very nice hotel and perfect staff »

The staff from the bar, restaurant, spa, reception & valet are all very friendly and professional, they recognized us very fast what made us feel welcome. That the reception shows you your room is really nice and makes it personal, the valet insisted on bringing the luggage to the room which is very good. We only have two small remarks: - The air-conditioning could not be set lower than 20,5 degrees, which is to high to sleep comfortably. - At the breakfast it is not really clear what you can order (eggs, pancakes, crepe, ??) a small menu on the buffet or at the table would be easier.

« Fabulous short stay - should have stayed longer. »

An excellent experience all round. Lovely room and bathroom. We loved our time in the spa and we would have booked a treatment if we had stayed longer. Helpful, friendly and professional staff. Absolutely NO complaints. We will be happy to recommend the hotel to family and friends.

« Refreshing Break! »

We stayed at this hotel for two nights. It was extremely easy to find, being within walking distance from the airport shuttlebus stop and also the rail station. Reception was very welcoming and check in was completed quickly and efficiently. We were then shown to our room and everything we needed to know was explained to us. The room, while not large, was very clean and comfortable.The air conditioning was quiet and we could hear no street noise. Consequently we slept really well. Breakfast was very good with a good choice and hot items cooked to order. We also enjoyed a good dinner. The dining room staff were most attentive and could not have been more helpful. The fact that the Hotel had a spa was a bonus and, although we only used it once, it was a very pleasant experience. All in all this is a lovely hotel in a very convenient location, where customer service is still considered important. We would have no hesitation in staying here again.
