This is a nice hotel for a quick stop. The hotel is new and clean, they have 24 hours self check in service (although it wasn't really clear how to open the door), the breakfast was good (for French standards) but there was a lack of croissaints after we were finished. The shower is a bit small.

It is not manned 24 hours, you can get in using a kiosk if you remember your confirmation no. and use the card you booked with.

This hotel is out of the city but we chose it for the secure parking which was free. The room was clean & adequate but extremely hard mattresses - I had to fold the doona to sleep on as the bed was so hard. It is within easy walking distance to the bus to the city centre & also to... More

This hotel is located near the autoroute, but far enough away to not be disturbed by the noise. It is an ideal midway stop when travelling in east-west direction in France. The staff was friendly and helpful, the rooms were clean and the breakfast a bit better than one normally get at these no frills hotels.
