Had requested a quiet room before booking, and again at check-in. Instead, given a room on the second floor with walls thin enough to clearly hear telephone conversations next door, and we experienced loud early morning and late night tromping from guests above us. Very soft, narrow split Queen or double bed didn't help with sleep, either. No magnifying mirror or electrical outlet (other than for shavers) in the bath, and a very weak hair dryer. Only 1 outlet to charge iPad, phones, etc. in room. However, our very tiny room and bath were clean.
Breakfast was 15 or 16 euros, but there are plenty of other good choices nearby for breakfast. Parking was 11 euros in a secure (but dingy) underground carpark about a block away. Amenities in the room included a pants press, large closet, safe, kettle, mini bar/refrigerator and free WiFi. Hotel had a small bar and tiny lounge area but no restaurant. Staff was helpful although we didn't ask much other than a map and key to the parking garage.
The location a block from the pedestrian area was excellent. Although we had a car, the hotel is also just 2 blocks from the train station. We had one of our best dinners ever at L'Esquisse Restaurant, a block from the hotel. Not much ambience, but incredible food, and delightful owners/staff. Don't be put off by reviews that talk about booking weeks in advance. We were able to secure a table just a day ahead; perhaps just our good luck, but worth a try.
