Having listened to colleagues' reviews about Brest and their accommodation during a previous visit, I was a bit dubious about my impending stay. However, I needn't have worried. Upon arrival I was pleasantly surprised by this 3star accommodation. I was expecting old furniture, tired rooms, man-made fibre sheets etc. How wrong was I. The reception area was large and clean with helpful staff; the bar area was welcoming and comfy (although service a little slow) and the bedroom was much better than I was expecting. The wood flooring was light and clean and the bed was large and very comfortable with crisp white cotton sheets although the pillows were a little 'high.' The bathroom was very modern and clean with a wet room type feel and granite tops - there was no bath, which was not a problem for me. The maid came every day but at different times so one of the days of my stay the room was not serviced as I was in residence. Continental breakfast in the restaurant was plentiful. I'm not a fan of continental breakfasts so didnt eat much but still thought the price a little steep regardless. The hotel was perfectly placed for me as I was working at Le Quartz conference centre which was a 5 min walk away. Overall a very pleasant stay and should I ever have to travel to Brest again, I would definitely stay here.

Although a bit dated the hotel was clean, comfortable, quiet and spacious. The staff were excellent and couldn't do enough for us. After making a passing enquiry about care hire, we returned to the hotel, where the receptionist had looked up deals for us and written down all the details for us. They spoke excellent English and were very patient listening to us attempting to practise our French. The cleaning staff were polite and friendly and did an excellent job. The location was good, walking distance to the main strip, shops and tram. The market on Sundays was pretty cool too, lots of delicious local produce.

The hotel has a lovely location overlooking the sea and is a well renovated traditional building with great charm yet modern facilities.
The reception was excellent advising on places to eat and being willing to go the extra step to make our stay all it could be. We will use Le Temps de Vivre again.
Very good hotel. The facade of the building is a bit drab, like most buildings in the centre of Brest, but inside the room was sparklingly clean and very comfortable. We had an American style room with two double beds. Given the good price I would certainly recommend this hotel for Brest.
So you’ve booked your flight to Brittany and your suitcases are packed, but you still need a hotel. No need to look further: …More
