Excellent location and very friendlyPosted Oct 27, 2013
Pros: very friendly and helpful people + excellent location between the city centre and the sea, easy walking everywhere and next to the Sunday market!
Cons: Maybe towels - a bit more in numbers and options
Location: Excellent! If one has a chance try include Sunday morning into the itinerary - just on the corner of the hotel - fantastic and delicious market!
Enjoyed Brest, people, cuisine, tram, and Sunday market! Brittany is geographically very close to England but why: - the smell of freshly made, in front of us, delicious food - the look of local fruit & veg, sea food, meat, cheese, wine, etc. are so different?! Very pleasant and memorable experience.

Excellent location and fine accommodationsPosted Apr 20, 2013 on Hotels.com
For the price, this was an excellent choice. Being an European hotel in a small city, it lacked some of the luxurious accommodations of more expensive "big city" hotels. The staff were very courteous and efficient. I would definitely stay again.

overall a pretty good experiencePosted Apr 20, 2013 on Hotels.com
The hotel is clean and at a convenient location. My few complains are 1) there are only stairs at the entrance, so I have to carry my heavy suitcase through the stairs. 2) the bed is right after the desk, so I can't really pull the chair out and sit comfortably. 3) i had some orders wrong: I want cappuccino, but i got hot chocolate (a very good chocolate though). I want eggs for breakfast but i didnt get any. Other than these, the hotel is nice and the front desk is very helpful.

Good if on an expenses paid visit.Posted Nov 2, 2012
The room wasn't overlooking the street as stated on the booking particulars. The room overlooked heating and kitchen vents and dirty rooftops, and was overlooked by adjacent and opposite apartments. very depressing. There were no Tea or Coffee facilities in the room. Expensive for a plain and simple no frills Hotel .

well surprised!Posted Oct 29, 2010 on Hotels.com
...and we were. Very good hotel with a nice selection at buffet breakfast. Staff were very friendly and helpful. Well located on the main street. Only problem was that while we were there, the new public transport system was being installed on Rue Siam and the whole main street was in turmoil. Work expected to continue till 2012 making walking/shopping on Rue Siam very difficult if you have a mobility problem. Hotel was excellent though!

Not As AdvertisedPosted Oct 7, 2010 on Hotels.com
Only stayed 1 night, but that was enough. We were told on arrival at 9.00pm that the restaurant in the hotel was open until 11.00 pm as it was friday night (even the poster in lift advertised this). We went down for dinner at 10.00pm only to be told that they were closed. I then told him that we had been told that they were open until 11.00pm and he replied yes but we are very busy. I then counted out (in french) the empty tables to him which numbered at least 20 and he then told me they were expecting a large party. By then it was clear that we were not going to get served and we left. When I mentioned this to the duty manager the next morning when we checked out, he jus shrugged his shoulders. I had planned to use this group of hotels' further as we travelled through france on our holiday, but I will never visit any hotel in this group again!!!

Pleasantly surprisedPosted Jun 17, 2009
Having listened to colleagues' reviews about Brest and their accommodation during a previous visit, I was a bit dubious about my impending stay. However, I needn't have worried. Upon arrival I was pleasantly surprised by this 3star accommodation. I was expecting old furniture, tired rooms, man-made fibre sheets etc. How wrong was I. The reception area was large and clean with helpful staff; the bar area was welcoming and comfy (although service a little slow) and the bedroom was much better than I was expecting. The wood flooring was light and clean and the bed was large and very comfortable with crisp white cotton sheets although the pillows were a little 'high.' The bathroom was very modern and clean with a wet room type feel and granite tops - there was no bath, which was not a problem for me. The maid came every day but at different times so one of the days of my stay the room was not serviced as I was in residence. Continental breakfast in the restaurant was plentiful. I'm not a fan of continental breakfasts so didnt eat much but still thought the price a little steep regardless. The hotel was perfectly placed for me as I was working at Le Quartz conference centre which was a 5 min walk away. Overall a very pleasant stay and should I ever have to travel to Brest again, I would definitely stay here.

A good hotel at a competitive price.Posted Jun 13, 2008
Used Brest as a flight stopover town. The Oceana is a clean, modern hotel and we were impressed with the service and facilities. Excellent bathroom, comfortable bed (could be improved with an alternative 2 soft pillows rather than just the one provided). Attractive bar and decent breakfast buffet. Would try this hotel group again elsewhere in France.

A Weekend in BrestPosted Oct 20, 2006
Other than the fact that the restaurant was closed on weekends, we found our stay here very good. People were extremely friendly and helpful and most were bilingual!!!!!It is right in the centre of town and the city is delightful to visit. If I were to ever go to Brest again...I would most definitely stay here.

Decent...but note greatPosted Nov 18, 2004
I would recommend this hotel as it was the nicest hotel in the city of Brest. However, our room smelled like cider chips the whole time. Some rooms that were deemed "non-smoking" actually smelled like stale smoke. The hotel staff did not speak much English (even though the information on Expedia says the staff is multi-lingual) and did not give out good information for places to eat, go, etc. The hotel is in the city of the city and is prime location to shop, eat, etc. The bar in the hotel was nice to have however you often had to go and seek the bartender yourself. The information given also says it has internet access but it didn't. In conclusion, the hotel was not great, but it was fairly clean. It you are looking for just a place to stay with no bells and wistles for a good price in a good location, this hotel is for you. If you want something nicer, look elsewhere.
