Very friendly reception staff. They respond to guests' requests very promptly and efficiently. I requested a late check-out until 16:00, and was granted to me on the spot (No... let me try! No.... let me ask my manager!).
Its location next to Grenoble Ecole de Management, was very convenient to me. My room was very well designed; reasonably spacious. I particularly like the bathroom design and its brownish color.
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.

A single night stay in this centrally located hotel that occupies a former military quarters. The overall style is cool and very comfortable. The rooms have high ceiling (*really* high ceilings, 5 m at least), with beautiful windows looking over the mountains. In proximity of the shopping mall "Caserne de Bonne". The center is within easy walking distance.
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.
*For these trips, trip savings is at least equal to the cost of the flight or hotel if booked separately. Note: For trips including flights, you will be charged by the airline for the flight, but your savings on the trip will equal the cost of the flight.
