We loved this hotel. Upon check-in we were warmly greeted by staff and then given a map with a complete explanation for a wonderful hike down to the sea and around the city. We also received a good recommendation for seafood and gorgeous seaside location. Yes, it is a hike down to the ocean and back, but not long and... More

there is a to wide variety between Best Western Hotels and that is not good. This hotel however is quite nice. Fresh white rooms (hard to maintain but done very well) good beds, good breakfast. If only they had a bar that would be open after 9 pm to relax.....free parking, free wifi.

We enjoyed our stay at this hotel, it is off the beaten path. A bit of a walk to the beach, uphill the entire way back and also about 10 min walk to the major shopping area. The room was small, but cute. The bathroom was recently renovated and was huge (almost the size of the room). The staff was... More

We stayed in this hotel for 4 nights - first impression was favourable with the reception staff being very helpful (especially when Air France cancelled my flight the night before I was due to fly out!) and they also had a good sense of humour. The room was nice and the bathroom had a great shower and was very modern.... More

I stayed with a friend in what they called their smallest room - while it was indeed very small the room was impeccably clean, our terrace was nice and large, and staff friendly and helpful. Only ten minutes from the beach and 5 from Les Halles with great restaurants.
