We stayed at the hotel just recently for 4 nights. The location is very good, full of nice restaurants around. It is not in the old town, but very close, walking distance and honestly the neighbourhood of St Pere is very nice and cultural. They do have a small swimming pool, which we didn’t use neither see so we can’t... More

The hotel has a good location although it is not easy to get to it with a car/taxi. The breakfast options are basic, but quality compensates for lack of variety. Rooms are OK, mine was quite large but that was in good part doe to its strange shape/location. The poor taste is left by the quality of the service. If... More

The booking worked fine. The receptionist explained all the tariff details, except for the local charge that was to pay at the end of the stay. Luckily it was already mentioned during the booking.
