“Very nice, except the pillows smelled very badly”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 15, 2012

You could see that the room was very clean. It was nice and sober. Also the sheets were clean and the bed was ok. But the smell of sigarettes in the pillows and the matrass was so heavy and bad that both of us couldn't sleep very well. We were both snoring and the day after we had dark slime in our nose because of the sigarette smoke. Our hear was smelling the same as when you go out in a pub where smoking is permitted. I think it should be wise to let people smoke in a special and cosy room, but not in the bedrooms. The room itself was really ok. The only thing was the sigarette-smell. Also the man behind the desk was constantly on the phone. He was calling when we wanted to book the room and calling when we wanted to leave. We had to wait very long for checking in and checking out. I don't think we would come back, just because of the sigarette smell. A pitty, because everything else was nice. Also the breakfast was good. If there is a guarantee that smoking is forbidden in the rooms, we would certainly come back to this hotel.

The hotel room reeked of smoke, the person at the front desk only spoke french so you couldn't ask any questions. Overall it just wasn't a nice hotel. Only stayed one night and that was enough for me.
