Great hotel - will be backPosted Nov 18, 2013
This is a great hotel, great location, great staff we were welcomed at the door and gien a beautiful room overlooking the street. the buildin gis 16th cent so some steps but the rooms are so modern and spotless. Early check out the next morning no hassles they called a cab. I will be back soon as possible as didnt get a chance to explore Nimes this time. There are a few loely bars and resturants near by. A great find - thanks expedia and thanks Hôtel Marquis de La Baume.

Nimes ExperiancePosted Sep 3, 2013 on Hotels.com
The hotel whilst nice internaly is very difficult to find due to name externaly being different to the booking details. Lots of stairs to the room despite a lift to the floor but then many small stairs due to old style building.Room was small but well presented and air con is covered by the curtains so it is expose your self to the neighbours or suffer reduced air con. Due to the hotel being in a small one way street with no parking and room for one car it is difficult to stop and unload at busy times and car parks are some distance from the hotel. Breafkast is ok but expensive compared to other hotel breakfasts that we had on our trip but location of the courtyard is nice. One receptionist spoke good English but the other did not but still all very freindly. Bathroom had been refurbished at some stage but quality of workmanship is poor and looks half finished in places, but a nice touch in the room was coffee making facilities and a mini bar. would look for another more convenient loaction if i was to visit the city again as this hotel is some distance from the main areas but did have some nice restutrants localy.

Unique, historic courtyard hotelPosted Aug 24, 2013 on Hotels.com
Very central hotel, close to all the Roman attractions of Nimes. Lovely, quiet courtyard building. Good breakfast. Helpful staff.

Great hotel, needs wifiPosted Aug 13, 2013 on Hotels.com
Nice room and pretty good location near the edge of old town. Reasonable walking distance from all the sites and very close to good restaurants. Wifi in the rooms is an extra charge which is pretty ridiculous these days and breakfast was not included though. Staff was nice and helpful. A bit of a walk from the train station if you have heavy bags but still doable.

Don't think it Justifies a 4-star RatingPosted Aug 7, 2013 on Hotels.com
I've stay here before and I'll stay here again but I think it is a little over-rated. The location is excellent and it is very quite. If you arrive by car it is complicated. There is no reserved "drop-off" place to unload your luggage. The nearest parking is about 300m at a shopping center. This is not bad, but you should know this before you arrive!

Hotel Marquis de Baume - just awful!Posted Aug 7, 2013
The roof was leaking into buckets. The staff did not try to assist with luggage. The room was ridiculously small, with few facilities. The bathroom had mildew on the shower curtain and on the disintegrating particleboard fascia of the bathtub which was very grubby. And there was a bag of USED tampons hanging in the toilet! The general upkeep of the hotel was incredibly poor and the situation was far from ideal. I think this hotel would be lucky to get a one or two star rating. It is far from being 4 stars!

Great little hotel, shame about the shower...Posted Aug 5, 2013
Pros: The staff were lovely and friendly.
Cons: The bathroom and shower!
Location: Really central and close to all the sights.
This hotel is right in the centre of Nimes and in a 17th Century building which is fabulous. The art work on the walls is vivid and really gives the place a lively feel. The room was comfortable and nicely decorated. The bathroom was tiny and, along with others who have said the same thing in their reviews, we had problems getting the shower to work. There was also no hook, so it could only be used as a hand held shower. Having said all that, I would stay there again - it's so lovely, so convenient, and there is a lovely feel to the place.

It's no longer called Marquis....Posted Jun 30, 2013 on Hotels.com
It was terrible to find this hotel! I loved it once I got there and the receptionist was so helpful! It's now called New Hotel de la Baume. Remember this when following the signs. :-D

A Hidden GemPosted Jun 11, 2013
Pros: Very clean, all the fixtures are fairly up to date and well made. Very nice staff. Great location
Cons: Better value on the petit dejeuner.
Location: Nimes is a very fine town. It is clean, laid back and great to explore. The people are friendly. The historical sites and parks are beautiful.
This is a great little hotel in a very beautiful city. You wouldn't know it from the exterior,which is rather subdued, but the interior is quite elegant with the old stone stairways, open courtyard and high ceilings. The rooms are just about the right size and the location is very quiet at night. It's location is great for access to all the ancient Roman sights, parks, etc., the train station (an easy ten minute walk even with luggage) and many good restaurants and brasseries. The room prices are reasonable, but 14 and change euros for petit dejeunere is not worth it. Check out the little cafes around block for a better deal.
