Let me start by saying, I am pretty easy to please. I am not very picky in terms of where I sleep on vacation - my main hopes are that the place is clean and the people are friendly. Hotel Darcet is VERY clean, but only a few of the people we met were friendly. We stayed 3 nights and, on one of the nights accidentally spilled some wine on the bed - we, of course, cleaned it as best we could. After we returned from our sightseeing the next day, we were reprimanded for making a mess with the wine and told not to "set wine on the bed", that that is what the tables were for. First of all, duh.. we did not set wine on the bed like it was a table. Second, there are in fact very few places to set anything down. And we weren't just reprimanded once, but twice. Another downside is that you have to give your room key to the front desk when you leave. They say that there is someone at the desk 24 hours - however that someone has to (understandably) use the restroom at some point. When they leave, they lock the door inside and out - so nobody gets in OR out. This happened to one of our cotravelers who was locked out at 2am for 20 minutes - and stared hopelessly at those inside who were trying to get out. What if there had been a fire? Other than that, some member of the staff seemed annoyed when we asked for assistance with navigating our day.
On the plus side - room was clean, price was reasonable for location, it was a cheap taxi ride from the airport (about $15 usd), the wifi was decent and they have a small kitchenette on the lower level that is available for guests to use.
