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.
I want to start off by saying that this hotel has one of the biggest elevators I've ever seen at a non-chain hotel in France. That seems like a good intro for the Grand Hotel, which is a really nice boutique hotel that's been completely redone to have all the amenities of a chain hotel without the bigger prices. Returning to the elevator, this one could comfortably hold 8-10 people, which is the first clue that the hotel's probably been totally redone at some point in the last few years. The rooms were quite comfy, though like all French hotel rooms a tad on the small size. One large bed (queen?) and a reading/writing desk were about all you could fit in. But that was all I needed. Also loved the bathroom design, which had the shower and rest of the bathroom floor all at one contiguous level so that it all drained quite well instead of having water flood out of the shower onto the bathroom floor. Fixtures were all quite new and in good shape, and everything in general was quite tastefully done. Staff also very friendly and helpful, and their first-floor restaurant looked good as well even though I never used it (breakfast only, but lots of newspapers too). It's right in the center of town, so easy to walk to just about anything, though train station is a bit further, about 15 minutes. On the whole, a very pleasant hotel experience for my week-long stay.

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.
Hotel is located close to the airport in Lyon. It has two restaurants with different meals offered for dinner. Rooms are not big, but space is optimised. Each and every day I got the coffee refill, since it is offered free of charge in the room, which I liked very much.
We were greeted very warmly but professionally . Sarah spoke perfect English, and was very helpful with a situation that arose outside of our stay with them. The room was large, airy, beautifully decorated, and included everything one might expect in a suite, but we were only charged what we paid for a regular double room in other areas of France. The on site dining room provided one of the most delightful dinners we had in our 15 days in France. What a treat to be able to enjoy a perfectly paired ( by their Sommelier) wine with dinner and not worry about driving back to the Hotel ... We had only to stroll across the well lit courtyard!!! The menu is outstanding, though a little pricey. If you stay there ... plan on this dinner being your special meal of your holiday with flavors I am still dreaming of. We were invited to use their Spa
Facilities at no extra charge ( indoor and outdoor pool, workout room etc) but our time there was short and we were off the following day. A very short drive from Mulhouse ... I highly recommend this hotel /spa
Quick Note to Proprietors : the pillows on the bed are in no way up to the standard of your impeccable hotel. This is one small detail that was overlooked ...
