CLTN Hotel, Le Mans, France

Formerly the Hôtel Emeraude, the stylish ‘boutique’-type Hôtel Charleston is in the heart of Le Mans centre ville and was fully renovated and re-launched by its enthusiastic new young owner over the period 2011-2012, with recent further improvements. From 2018, all rooms are air-conditioned.

Location is just 300m (a 5 minute walk) from the Le Mans main train station with its regular TGV service to Paris and other points, a simple tram ride or 12-15 minute taxi ride to the Circuit des 24 Heures.

Accommodation includes a selection of 33 individual bedrooms, including doubles, queens, twins and several family rooms (with 1 double and 2 twin beds in bunk-bed format).

All rooms are air-conditioned, have en-suite shower (a few with bath / shower) and WC and are equipped with WiFi, satellite TV, coffee maker.

The quiet interior courtyard is a pleasant oasis away from the town and track and the pleasant lounge and breakfast room are indicative of a small but full-service hotel with excellent attention to detail. There is no bar as there is a school across the street – but there are numerous restaurants and bars just a few minutes’ walk away.

The hotel also has its own secure (keycode access) underground car park with 13 spaces and a lift to all floors
