“Prison”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed September 10, 2013

We booked 2 nights, and arrived in Manosque on a hot August afternoon. The check in was ok, then we were shown to our room. There is a high metal mesh fence and gate - similar to those you would see at the entry to a prison. Next to the gate, our room was dark and dingy, with only one window opening to the entrance gate. A man stood there smoking and looking into our room. The room had a bad smell, and was in no way comparable to the clever official photographs. The toilet was a preformed white plastic all in one unit, similar to what you might find on an aircraft - but not as well cared for.
Perhaps we had the bad room in the hotel, but there was no way my wife or I were going to stay. We left, forfeiting our paid for booking, and they charged us for the 2 nights. We have stayed in hundreds of hotels all over the world and this was very much the worst we have ever come across. Stay away!

Room Tip: Try another hotel. The Best western in town was excellent.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 20, 2011

This hotel is a convenient place to stay when visiting Manosque, is clean, and has all the essential facilities in the rooms.
This hotel was a little hard to find at first because it is listed in expedia.com.au as P'tit Dej Hotel Manosque but on Google Maps as Hotel BelAlp, as it is P'tit Dej Hotel BelAlp. But straightforward enough when you have the address.
It is literally just a few minutes to walk to/from the Manosque train station, even for a slow walker, and 10-15 minutes to walk to the old city but there is also a direct bus that stops nearby to the hotel.
The rooms are small but clean, and the bathrooms are closet-like with just a shower, basin and toilet. This can be a tight squeeze but are also very clean.
Wireless internet is included in the price. Breakfast is available for an extra 6 euro, providing tea, coffee and juice to drink, and yoghurts, cereals, bread, toast to eat. There are also vending machines near the entrance for tea, coffee etc and snacks.
The reception desk is closed from midday until mid-afternoon, so check with the hotel if arriving after lunch.
All in all, a nice place to stay in Manosque.
