We liked this hotel a lot. It was handy for all the sights we wanted to see and had everything and more that we needed, all at a reasonable price. The only drawback for us was finding parking. We used the underground public parking which added 17 euros per day to the cost.

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.

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.
