The hotel is ideally situated right in the center, on the Place Graslin, just a stone’s throw from the majestic Passage Pommeraye. Nantes awaits you.

The 4-star Oceania Hôtel de France Nantes has been completely renovated, in perfect keeping with its historic heritage. Our goal: to restore all of the hotel’s authentic former character whilst harmoniously adding contemporary touches. The magnificent lobby, lively colorful elements, contrast of materials and staircase of light bring to life the vibrant memories of this veritable institution.

Our 72 rooms, all different, swing between contemporary spirit and Art Deco. They have been fully refurbished to offer you the highest levels of comfort: generous volumes, ‘Oceania’ concept bathrooms with Italian-style walk-in showers, top quality bed linen, as well as breathtaking views of the Place Graslin and its theater. The jewel in the crown of this luxury hotel is undoubtedly its suite with private terrace overlooking the rooftops of Nantes. The breakfast room is also bright and spacious. Lastly, if you want to relax, our hotel in the center of Nantes also boasts a fitness room, and not forgetting our superb hewn cut stone lobby. The perfect environment for an unforgettable weekend in Nantes!

Driven by creators from a host of spheres, the city is being shaped and transformed through a range of both permanent and ephemeral works, into the now famous “Voyage à Nantes” attraction circuit, including the absolutely unmissable musical evenings held at our cozy and arty bar at the 4-star Hotel de France. Our barmaid will mix you delicious cocktails in an atmosphere that successfully blends classical decoration in a mix-and-match spirit. Like the rest of the hotel, it’s a totally unique experience, and one not to be missed!
