The ever popular Citadel is home to a large number of St-Malo hotels. Most visitors choose to stay within the walls, an area also referred to as “intra-muros”. This is the centre for nightlife with an array of vibrant bars, restaurants and cafes.

There is a large selection of hotels to choose from but the prime location does mean that rooms are charged at a premium rate and in the busy summer season those with restaurants may insist that guests eat in. Car parking is often extra and this can be expensive.

For those who don’t mind starting their evening with a stroll or taxi ride, there are a long string of hotels on or near the seafront eastwards towards Parame. Here, finding a room with a sea-view is much more likely.
