Annecy is amazing. However, this hotel is a 15 minute walk to the village of Annecy. Since the village is so charming, next time I will stay right in the village. I am not a lazy person, but walking 30 minutes round trip a couple of times each day is time consuming and after about 3 times is no longer interesting. Yes, there is a bus, but it runs every 15 minutes and still requires walking up and down a long hill. Also, the room we were in did not have a shower. It only had a tub with a hand-held shower hose and no sort of shower curtain. For the price, I would have expected a better shower/bathing set-up. They put is in the top floor which meant no window other than a hatch that swung out, so to see out, we had to peer out the opening. We could not see out from anywhere else in the room. Great view, but difficult to see it. No excuse for putting us in that room as the hotel was clearly not full. Also the breakfast was VERY disappointing (i.e. warm juice out of a dispenser, coffee out of a machine, pastries you could get at a gas station in the states). Don't bother with it. Go into the village and get breakfast at any number of outstanding cafe's and restaurants. The bed was a little hard for me. I sleep on my side and my shoulders were sore each morning.
