France Travel Planner by Tom Brosnahan & Jane Fisher   Hotels & Apartments/Flats in Poitiers
Location is an important consideration in choosing your Poitiers hotel: you can stay near the train station and climb the hill to the city center, or stay in the center itself, closer to the sights.




Poitiers has a good if limited selection of hotels in all price ranges, bed-and-breakfast houses, and short-term rental apartments/flats.

Consider location carefully: if you stay near the train station, you'll climb the steep hill (on foot or by bus or taxi) for sightseeing, restaurants and shopping. Staying on the hilltop in the city center (map) is most convenient.

The 4-star, 50-room Mercure Poitiers Centre is the best in town, up on the hill in the city center, walking distance to most of the sights and the Gare de Poitiers SNCF (down the hill). More...

Also good is the more traditional 4-star, 47-room Best Western Poitiers Centre Le Grand Hôtel with a pretty open-air terrace. More...

The 3-star, 56-room Ibis Styles Poitiers Centre has a convenient location. Because it is one of Ibis's Styles hotels, it's not an antiseptic modern box but rather a more interesting hotel with modern design and colors. More...

Poitiers's gare (train station), normally busy with hotels, was heavily bombed during World War II, so the several hotels right near the station today tend to be modern, including the 2-star, 75-room Ibis Budget Gare de Poitiers. More...

Also near the station at the bottom of the hill from the city center is the small 2-star, 9-room family-operated Hôtel Le Memphis, a popular place with few rooms, so reserve in advance. More...

The 2-star, 60-room Ace Hotel Poitiers is a thrifty, modern place 5 km (3.7 miles) south of the city center near the university hospital and convenient to the E62 autoroute. More...
