Budget Saint-Malo Accommodation & Hotels

Cheap areas to stay in Saint-Malo

The swashbuckling castles and old chateau spires of beautiful Saint-Malo actually hide countless cheap hotels and accommodation options to suit a shoestring budget, meaning this jewel of Brittany is on the menu for all. You could bed down along the promenades of the salt-washed harbour, where charming Breton builds stand tall against the English Channel. Or, maybe you'll go for the fort town of Dinard across the waters of the River Rance? Or, there’s the old pirate haunts of Saint-Malo's walled city that beckon, where pint-sized hotels hide between historic stone bulwarks.

Cheap hotels in Saint-Malo

The ibis Styles on the Saint-Malo port comes with bars and suites that are picked out in nautical blues and decorated in the way of mariners, adding to the character of this harbourside stay. Meanwhile, the ibis Budget in the centre of Saint-Malo, close to the modern area of Saint-Servan, offers cutting-edge design and spacious rooms. Then there’s the walled city, which has its own ibis, which squeezes 39 cosy suites and wallet-friendly family rooms into the old homes of onetime privateers.

Where to find cheap food in Saint-Malo

Look for the establishments marked chez on the walks along the windswept harbour of Saint-Malo, east of the historic centre. You're sure to find countless little family-owned French bistros with their own daily menus of mussels and fries. Back in the old historic district, the seafood restaurants become holes-in-the-wall touting platters of salty oysters from the Brittany bays. And then there are the creperies of the new town area in Saint-Servan, offering cheesy pancakes on the modern side of the city.

Cheap things to do in Saint-Malo

Saint-Malo is an immersive and characterful place no matter what budget you're on. History oozes from every pore in the historic old town, where great walls once raised by corsair pirates still belie the time when Norman, Anglo and French sailors wouldn't dare tread here. It's totally free to take to the old bulwarks and stroll the entire district from atop the palisades. After that, why not retire to the forest of masts that marks the harbour, and watch as skiffs skim in and out of the English Channel? There are beaches too, with Plage du Mole and wide Plage de l'Eventail this side of the River Rance, and the golden cove of Plage du Prieure on the other. The town is also known for its lively folk music festival in the early summer.

Cheap ways to get around Saint-Malo

The historic walled city of Saint-Malo is entirely walkable, and in fact, strolling this area is surely one of the best ways to check off all the sights. When it comes to getting to the modern districts of Saint-Servan or Parame, then it's possible to catch a cheap local bus connection from the station at St Vincent. Saint-Malo also has its own dedicated visitor locomotive, which moves around the harbour and the old town areas.
