If you're in town for university-related business, Hotel de l'Ill is the hotel to stay at. It's a great little place regardless, situated right across the canal from old town and an easy 10-minute walk to the university.
Hotel de l'Ill is quieter than hotels on some of the main drags (students like to stay out late here and let you know what sort of night they've had at 4am), and is within a few minutes' walking from a fabulous array of attractions, restaurants, and pubs as well as art galleries and shops. There's a pharmacy around the corner down the street and a lovely little Turkish kebab shop even closer.
Rooms are cozy and clean and well maintained. Internet is very good, as is water pressure. Very comfortable beds.
More than anything, though, the staff is just fantastic -- all perpetually friendly and genuine, helpful, personable. Good sense of humor, even.
Great value for money, lovely people, great location, solid amenities, and clean, bright rooms. What more do you want?More
