Because our guests are our best ambassadors

…let yourself be inspired by their testimonies.

  • "The apartment is over a bakery and there are bistros, grocery stores and general shopping all along the street. The train station is walking distance which was great for us as we did not have a car."
  • "Excellent stay in a beautiful setting: warm welcome from Laëtitia, air conditioning, coffee, fresh water and ice cubes available, beautiful decoration of the apartment."
  • "I loved everything! The place was fantastic. Location was perfect. The host was very sweet and recommended all the good places. I 100% recommend this place to everyone!"
  • "Everything is excellent: apartment, location, home! I'll come back!"
  • "Location, cachet and quality of housing."
  • "The ideal place to stay in Rennes! Everything was perfect ! The apartment is located in the center of Rennes, in a lovely pedestrian street (but overlooks a very large courtyard for more peace and calm at night). It is renovated with a lot of charm and elegance. Everything works very well, a lot of equipment and services, with small very nice gestures: Nespresso coffee and Marriage tea are waiting for you. Guides are available in the apartment as well as many information on Rennes and Brittany. The hostess welcomed us with a lot of kindness. In short, a delicious stay."
  • "An ideal stay, in a real small cocoon: the kindness and the welcome of our host, the decoration and the cleanliness of the apartment, the very complete equipment and the small "more" nice things, the extreme calm, in spite of the very centrale situation, in short, one of the best apartments I've had in years that I stay in apartment hotels."
  • "Total satisfaction for this appartment in all its aspects: conviviality, excellent location in Rennes, comfort and equipment."


I'm 35 years old, I live in Rennes for 19 years, and I'm a textile designer.

Le Canapé Bleu opened in March 2013.

Since, in a more humane way, closer to people, I welcome you and I willingly share my good addresses of the city: creperies, restaurants, cafes or other bars that are my favorite places in the city, and also in the cities of Brittany around.

I like spending time with my hosts so that everyone has a unique and personalized welcome, I am always very available and listening to their whishes.

What is the point?

  1. Le Canapé Bleu ne prend pas de commission, alors que les centrales de réservation en ligne prennent jusqu’à 30% de commission par réservation.
  2. Comme il n’y a pas de frais de réservation et donc d’intermédiaires à rémunérer, l’hôtelier s’engage à donner son meilleur tarif : il partage ainsi la commission économisée avec le client sous forme d’avantages, de réduction, que vous n’aurez pas ailleurs (une chambre avec vue, un petit déjeuner ou une boisson offerte par exemple).
  3. Vous trouverez les dernières disponibilités réelles même si les autres sites marchands affichent “complet”.
  4. C’est une démarche économiquement responsable, qui permet aux hébergeurs d’investir, de rénover, de se former sur la qualité de service, de créer des emplois, de soutenir l’économie réelle sur les territoires car ils font travailler tous les artisans locaux par exemple.
  5. C’est un moyen de retrouver une identité parmi la quantité d’établissements, se différencier et permettre à chacun d’être créatif. Les plateformes de réservation alignent les fiches de présentation des établissements de façon impersonnelle et uniforme : court-circuités par les centrales de réservation en ligne et autres sites d’avis, les hôteliers tentent de renouer une relation directe avec leurs clients.
  6. La donne était plus simple avant avec le guide Michelin, les Pages Jaunes ou l’Office du Tourisme. Autant d’apporteurs d’affaires qui ont perdu leur rôle de prescription
  7. L’argent que vous dépensez reste sur le territoire et n’est pas optimisé fiscalement via les paradis fiscaux par les centrales de réservation en ligne : ces sites sont basés à l’étranger et ne sont pas fiscalisés en France.

Merci à tous ceux qui favorisent la réservation en direct !

Un peu d’histoire… Le savon noir est le savon breton par excellence : en effet, d’immenses champs de lin étaient présents en Bretagne et en faisaient une région très riche en production d’huile de lin, ingrédient principal du savon noir.
