I think this sums up our stay at Balladins: Dear Didier, I think this email to the manager sums up our stay @ Balladins Dear Manager, I need to write because despite my group of 29 persons staying at your hotel as paying guests very happily for 3 nights on the last evening (Sunday) your desk staff upset me greatly....

Attention! In the adjoining building is home to a crazy man who tried to kill occupants of the hotel throwing heavy objects from the window. The Manager of the Balladins is not interested in care! Very dangerous to stay there! Especially kids!

A terrible little hotel with small rooms, lousy doors, poor soundproofing, lousy breakfast and poor cleaning. Who ever gave a three star rating to that hotel, should be an idiot or he must have been bribed to do so. Avoid it...

Booked a family room with mezzanine floor at this hotel. On arrival the room was dusty and smelt damp. The windows were filthy and the curtains were falling off the wall. The bathroom has mould around the shower. We only stayed in the room for 20mins before leaving. The hotel then took the full charge from our credit card, despite... More

This hotel IS NOT IN ANNECY!! Cran Gevrier is a suburb of Annecy, and not the best one either! It only takes between 10/15 minutes to walk into Annecy but you walk on a busy road with no views or anything of interest. There is nothing else around, no shops or eating places, just a residential area all with metal... More

I would give the hotel a 2 star. It was hard to drag the suitcase in the room, because very little space. Clean enough. Bus stop close by, but walk to the lake and about 20-25 minutes. Great atmosphere of smoothed impression of the hotel.) Driving through this part of France, be sure to stop in Annecy.

Stayed here during Geneva Motorshow and had one of the worst hotel experiences in a long time. The place is completely run down. Room was dirty, stains on the floor.
