I stayed here while visiting my son who was taking his semester abroad in Grenoble. It's a very convenient location - right next to the light rail system. The room was - as expected - quite small - but just fine. The staff was helpful and genial. And while I was at the Museum of the French Resistance (highly recommended) - I learned that this hotel had been used as a headquarters by both Nazis and Italian commanders during the occupation. I assume those guys could have stayed any place they wanted - and they picked the Gambetta.
They offer parking in their private garage - but it is very very tight quarters - and my rental car was mid sized - so it was harder than solving a Rubic's cube puzzle and very time consuming to maneuver my car in and out. If you have a big car - look for another solution.

Location and neighbourhood are good, in Grenoble's eco-quarter. Surrounded by park and a square with fountains. Mountains all around. Good modestly priced restaurants, grocery stores and other shopping nearby. Can easily walk to tram lines and buses and the older part of the city. We really enjoyed our two weeks in Grenoble.

I checked in on a Friday afternoon. The front desk girl spoke pretty good English and was helpful in answering my initial questions about the city and room as well as later follow up questions. She was generally very pleasant to interact with so I would rate the staff highly at this hotel. The other staff members were also OK and spoke enough English (better than my French)
The room was clean with somewhat new looking furniture. Bathroom also seemed relatively new and was clean also. Location is across the street from the train station which is great for convenience because that also is right near the end of the main street so you can walk or take the metro to most places easily.
Overall it is a good hotel for the price.

A lovely, old hotel in a lovely old area around Grenoble. The staff were very welcoming and inclusive to our 4 member non-french speaking staff. The meals we had were terrific, dinner was in the top 5 meals of our 3 week European stay. Lovely bathrooms. Bedroom looked a little worn, yet our sleep was terrific and the bed linens were very nice. The rooms were impeccably clean.
We did not use the pool due to our short stay but I would not hesitate to do so. Nor would I hesitate to revisit them and bring friends and family.

The largest city in southern France with 160,000 people, Grenoble is surrounded by the Alps. Though small, the Musée de Grenoble has some impressive works, including four Picassos, one Miro, one Kandinsky, and one Andy Warhol. The Musée de la Resistance et de la deportation de l'Isere is worth a visit for its informative exhibition about World War II.
