First; the hotel is very nice, and centrally located in a beautiful part of Nantes.
Now, for what you need to be aware of-- you NEED to contact the hotel before you go to get the pass code. The hotel is located in a traffic restricted part of the city, which means your GPS will tell you to take streets which are barred and require a key code to access. We were not made aware of this, and the hotel made no mention of it.
So, we drove around 90 minutes looking for a road that would allow us to get to the hotel. Add to this construction going on, and it was a nightmare. Eventually, we found on street parking about five blocks away, and walked to the hotel where they told us we needed a code to get pass the barriers... How on earth we were supposed to know this in advance is a mystery to us. Anyway, once we finally got passed the barriers we got to quite possibly the smallest parking lot on earth. It must have had less than 10 spaces for the entire hotel.
Again, once we got parked and got to our room, it was very nice, and easy to walk to the points of interest in Nantes. However, we were so agitated by the passcode debacle, and the utterly preposterous parking situation that we dared not get in our car again until it was time to check-out, for fear of losing our parking space.
