Places to Stay in Champagne


A selection of places to stay in the Champagne region, handpicked by Nick Baker, TFB’s Founder, who has stayed at most of them and believes these offer a range of pricing from luxury to budget hotels and guesthouses. Nothing is sponsored. When staying in Champagne the two main cities of Reims & Epernay have as many of the big Maison as each other. Epernay is the smaller one sitting a top the Côte de Blancs and on the edge of the Marne Valley with many growers and Maison close by. Epernay is more limiting for food and nightlife. Reims is a much larger city, with more accommodation choices, many restaurants and a busy nightlife.

If you seek peaceful evenings there are plenty of choices outside the two cities. If you make a booking please mention you were recommended by TheFinestBubble.com. We welcome further accommodation suggestions please use “contact us.”

Places to Stay in Reims & Surrounding Area

Best Western Plus Hotel de La Paix – Central Reims
When in Champagne this is where Nick TFB’s founder stays. Very affordable, great location, underground car park, buzzing champagne bar and a lovely outside courtyard for breakfast in summer. Managed by the Renardias family since 1912. Just a 10 minute walk from the Cathedral and an easy walk from the train station.

 

La Caserne Chanzy Hotel & Spa – Central Reims
A luxury hotel opposite Reims Cathedral, no better central location, this former fire station opened in 2019 and sets a high standard in both its accommodation and its spa. The rooms are small, but that is modern building design! On the ground floor is a fabulous restaurant, The Great Georgette, extensive wine list and good value champagnes. One of the few places to eat in Reims on Sunday and Monday evenings, though always book ahead. Driving to the hotel is not perfect, you cant get to the front of the hotel, a concierge meets you at a barrier 100 meters away which is fairly seamless. The hotel is a ten-minute walk from Reims Train Station.

 

 

Domaine Les Crayeres – South-East Reims
Set amongst extensive gardens and woodlands this has an idyllic location and right on the doorstep are some of the famous Maison including Charles Heidsieck, Ruinart, Pommery, Taittinger and Veuve Clicquot. A gentile feel, with a building full of character and charm, twenty bedrooms sit a top another gastronomic highlight of Reims, Restaurant le Parc a two Michelin star restaurant. In addition Brasserie le Jardin offers a more casual dining space in a large conservatory. A great base for a few days holiday in Champagne.

Pool and gym facilities, an easy place to relax and pamper yourself. A restaurant is open to guests, super food and great value champagne list. Located on the north side of the Montagne de Reims half way between Reims to Epernay. A popular location, we recommend you book plenty of time in advance.

Royal Champagne Hotel & Spa – Champillon overlooking Epernay – The Ultimate Luxury Location
A beautifully designed building and 5 star hotel accredited with three Michelin Keys, one of only 24 hotels in France. Amazing location, the best terrace in Champagne, for drinks or dining in summer. Rooms are sumptuous and spacious, with two restaurants: Le Royal has one Michelin star, great food, if a little slow and formal. Le Bellevue Restaurant & Terrace my favourite place to eat in the summer is on the terrace., soak in the sunshine, amazing sunsets and good value food. An extensive champagne list.

Places to Stay in Côte des Bar
The Côte des Bar is 150 km or a 2 hour drive south-east of  Epernay. The landscape is characterised by Jurassic slopes overlying Kimmeridgian limestone bedrock. Crisscrossed by small lush valleys that connect with those of the Seine and Aube, the Côte des Bars encompasses a patchwork of vineyards with as many different exposures. The predominant planting is the Pinot Noir, which thanks to climate, geology and careful vine husbandry, produces wines with a distinctive lightness that makes them much-sought after by the master blenders of Champagne’s leading Houses.

La Maison M Located in the Champagne-Ardenne region in the Aube.
Five guest rooms in a charming 19th century Guesthouse situated in the heart of the medieval city of Troyes.
