France Travel Planner by Tom Brosnahan & Jane Fisher   Hotels in Annecy, France
In the heart of the historic Old Town, in the modern center, near the train station, on the lakeshore: Annecy has every sort of lodging you might desire.




On the 800-meter (875-yard), 12-minute walk between the Gare d'Annecy SNCF train station and the Palais de l'Île at the very heart of the Old City, you will pass near most of Annecy's convenient hotels—dozens of them.

A small number of these hotels and self-catering apartments/flats are right within the Vieille Ville, oldest, historic part of the city itself; most are in the newer district to the north of it.

Off-season, you may wish to be right in the narrow old streets, but in the height of summer you may prefer to escape the throngs and stay in the "normal" town.
