We booked this room online in advance because it was suppose to be near the port.
This hotel is not really close to the port. It required a taxi to get to the cruise ship terminal. This hotel is not close to the old harbor. We walked to a restaurant near the old harbor and walked through some questionable neighborhoods.
Our room was small but clean. The room had a king size bed but we needed 2 beds. The receptions said she had no other rooms. We took the sheets off the bed and discovered the beds were zipped together, so we unzipped them and requested additional linens. The elevator required a key card to use which is not uncommon in France.
There was a breakfast available for 13 Euros, but we did not try it. There was no actual restaurant.
We only saw one hotel staff person the whole time we stayed- nite and morning. She was very personable and helpful, but did not have the resources available we thought she should have- like a choice of rooms. She found the linens for us and we took them up to the room and put them on the beds. She called us a taxi to get to the port.
Beware, the taxis charge from their location when you call them and not from the location they pick you up.
