Hotel Alpha is about a ten or fifteen minute drive from downtown Grenoble and has easy access from the A41. The restaurant food is good, especially the buffet breakfast. Rooms are fairly small, but well equipped. Try the patisserie next door for take-out lunch.
The hotel opened three years ago: Brand new inside, an existing older building. Not just refurbished, really rebuilt inside., completely new but for a few reminders of the old days such as the "grand escalier" magnificently integrated in a deliberately modern environment.
The staff and management are very welcoming, thoughtful, making sure the hotel deserves its name of "Grand Hotel".
It is a no-brainer to me: Next time I need an hotel in Grenoble, that will be the one.

We stayed here for 3 nights at the end of September 2014. Our studio apartment was quite large, very modern and very clean. The small kitchen was very useful for preparing our breakfast, which saved us money. There were 2 supermarkets directly across the road from the hotel, which also made it easy. The hotel has its own underground car park which was good as there is not a lot of parking in the street. You will need to check in first and get instructions for the car park, as it is not obvious from the street. There are a number of restaurants in close proximity to the hotel. We enjoyed our stay at this hotel and would recommend it to anyone.

This hotel was ideal for our travel plans. We arrived by train and took the tram to our hotel. The stop was very close to the hotel, which was convenient. The apartment was roomy and comfortable, with a kitchen table and a couch. The kitchenette was well supplied with dishes and cookware. The only thng it lacked was decor. The walls were bare and that made it appear less welcoming.
The location was perfect. We were in the heart of town and could easily get to the shops and restaurants on foot. We would happily stay there again.
"Nice hotel, great location, kind and helpful staff"
Great value! The hotel was reasonably priced and our room and bathroom were very clean (my top priority) and comfortable. We asked for a room with a little balcony, and though the view was mostly of the side street, we could see a sliver of the beautiful park that's in front of the hotel. It was nice having the breakfast option - we usually got the continental at the hotel or went out to one of the local cafes and brought back coffee and pastry - but the breakfast room was very nice. The staff were pleasant and helpful, and helped make our stay a nice one!
