I recently stayed at the Hotel des Francs whilst in Soissons on business. From start to finish the staff could not have been friendlier or more helpful. I was initially a bit worried about being on the ground floor (room 001) but even though I had the front car park outside of my window, and the door to the pool and spa outside the door, I wasn't disturbed by noise once during my whole stay. The temperature of the room was just right despite it being a laminate and tile floor, and there was ample storage for my clothes etc. The bathroom was huge and very clean, although the toilet was located in a small cupboard outside the bathroom door. I ate dinner in the hotel restaurant 'Le Relais des Vignes' on each night of my 3 night stay and never once felt let down by the menu choices, quality of the food or the service, which is important when travelling alone. I ate from the Menu de Marche each evening, which at 19E for 2 courses of 25E (including an amuse bouche) for 3 was great value (and I would have eaten from this menu if I had been on a personal trip and paying my own money). I can't speak for the wine choices but from the reaction of the other diners (both residents and non-residents) there was a pleasing selection available. On 2 nights I ventured out in the evening for a walk before dinner. The hotel is in a perfect position to walk down a brightly lit, wide boulevard with ample pedestrian crossings (the whole town appeared very pedestrian friendly) past the ruins of the Abbey of St. Jean des Vignes (visible from the front of the hotel), and then a short 10 minute walk to the Cathédrale Saint-Gervais-et-Saint-Protais de Soissons. Walking past the Cathedral takes you into the heart of Soissons, with a selection of shops and services available including a Carrefour City (a French Tesco Direct/Sainsburys Local) with toiletries, drinks and snacks available, several pharmacies (you can't buy paracetamol in supermarkets in France, only pharmacies) quite a few shoe shops, bookshops and a Sephora (which unfortunately closed too early for me to browse). On the morning of my departure I was able to walk around the Abbey ruins just as the sun came up. Although L'Arsenal (the museum) wasn't open due to the season, there were informative plaques around the site and I was able to wander at my own pace. Behind the hotel is a newer area, where the Music & Dance Centre (architect Henri Gaudin) is situated - also the location of La Mie Caline bakery (I was very lucky to experience their Galettes des Rois and lunch menus whilst visiting my client) All in all, for a town I had never heard of before, I would be more than happy to return to Soissons to visit more places, and would happily choose Hotel des Francs as my base for this.

I arrived footsore and tired after walking from the station. I was shown my comfortable room and invited to tea in the garden, which is beautifully kept. Advice on places to eat and to visit was freely forthcoming. Breakfast included conserves made by Sylvie from fruits home-grown by Mario - utterly delicious! My complicated schedule involved catching a bus - Mario could not have been more helpful - perfect hosts. I would unhesitatingly recommend this guest-house to you.

An ideal place to stay. Us prepossessing on the outside, the welcome is warm, the room clean and dimly well designed. Close to Laon (an impressive but very odd town) this is a good stopover going to or from The Tunnel.

This is standard Ibis and I cannot fault them on the room or the value for money (£130.00 for two rooms, 3 adults). At first sight one might think that the hotel is too close to the main roads which run along two sides of it but the screening of trees is quite effective. Getting into the commercial zone where it is situated is relatively easy but because of one way streets you cannot return precisely on the same route. It meant that when we went to dinner which we could see just the other side of the road we had to drive a huge distance in a circle to get there. Fortunately, when we left in the morning we were driving through Soissons so the vagaries of the one way system were in our favour. We had two rooms on the ground floor which meant we could park the car outside and pass the luggage through the window which was handy. Breakfast was the standard Ibis fare and plentiful and fresh. .

It's rare I leave a bad review but unfortunately this is an exception. The name Premiere Classe is an example of Malapropism at its worse ,or an example of French Humour . We booked this " place " by the attractive photos etc ,what we were not prepared for was the stench ,a mix of beer and sick,we watched cleaning staff spraying the air in the rooms before they entered . True you get what you pay for and it's certainly cheap ,but after we had a shower hoping to get rid of the awful smell and sat on the sticky bed considering staying fully clothed to sleep on the bed our will was breaking . There is no air con ,this must make the rooms unbearable in the heat of the summer ,there is a small window but its very small and leaves one with worries of security,not to mention letting in the full roar of the adjacent busy road. I kept thinking that it's not that bad ,iv'e slept in ditches on Dartmoor ,but Dartmoor doesn't usually stink of beer sick and have the constant door rattling roar of traffic. We escaped to the very nearby Ibis and had a very comfortable ,quiet and clean nights sleep. Glancing in the Premiere's car park the next morning we saw it was full of work vans ,probably the ideal customers for this place as they are probably saving money on a hotel allowance . Footnote.. The guy on reception was brilliant ,he deserves to work somewhere much better (which shouldn't be difficult).

I was initially a bit worried about being on the ground floor (room 001) but even though I had the front car park outside of my window, and the door to the pool and spa outside the door, I wasn't disturbed by noise once during my whole stay. The temperature of the room was just right despite it being a laminate and tile floor, and there was ample storage for my clothes etc. The bathroom was huge and very clean, although the toilet was located in a small cupboard outside the bathroom door. I ate dinner in the hotel restaurant 'Le Relais des Vignes' on each night of my 3 night stay and never once felt let down by the menu choices, quality of the food or the service, which is important when travelling alone. I ate from the Menu de Marche each evening, which at 19E for 2 courses of 25E (including an amuse bouche) for 3 was great value (and I would have eaten from this menu if I had been on a personal trip and paying my own money). I can't speak for the wine choices but from the reaction of the other diners (both residents and non-residents) there was a pleasing selection available. On 2 nights I ventured out in the evening for a walk before dinner. The hotel is in a perfect position to walk down a brightly lit, wide boulevard with ample pedestrian crossings (the whole town appeared very pedestrian friendly) past the ruins of the Abbey of St. Jean des Vignes (visible from the front of the hotel), and then a short 10 minute walk to the Cathédrale Saint-Gervais-et-Saint-Protais de Soissons. Walking past the Cathedral takes you into the heart of Soissons, with a selection of shops and services available including a Carrefour City (a French Tesco Direct/Sainsburys Local) with toiletries, drinks and snacks available, several pharmacies (you can't buy paracetamol in supermarkets in France, only pharmacies) quite a few shoe shops, bookshops and a Sephora (which unfortunately closed too early for me to browse). On the morning of my departure I was able to walk around the Abbey ruins just as the sun came up. Although L'Arsenal (the museum) wasn't open due to the season, there were informative plaques around the site and I was able to wander at my own pace. Behind the hotel is a newer area, where the Music & Dance Centre (architect Henri Gaudin) is situated - also the location of La Mie Caline bakery (I was very lucky to experience their Galettes des Rois and lunch menus whilst visiting my client) All in all, for a town I had never heard of before, I would be more than happy to return to Soissons to visit more places, and would happily choose Hotel des Francs as my base for this.
