Overall; poor maintenance and upkeep have reduced this potentially decent hotel into a thoroughly rundown motel (Feb 2012). We were a party of over 30 and each of us had identical experiences. One of us changed rooms 3 times in search of something better before giving up.
Positive; clean reception area, very polite staff, nice large balcony for each room.
Negatives: Too many to count, but here are the common ones:
-Room service involves making the bed and folding the one towel you get, the towel is changed once every 3-4 days whether you leave it on the floor or not (so use wisely).
-floor carpet very dirty with no sign of vacuuming in the past year or so.
- bathroom water pressure extremely weak, hot water sometimes not available.
-bathroom floor floods when flushing toilet or taking a shower, amenities falling apart all over.
-room lighting is ridiculous throughout - almost impossible to do keen tasks like shave or read (carry portable lighting).
-no AC so rooms can get warm, as a result you get plenty of noise from the street due to obligatory open windows (the opposite side is quieter)
-Tiny TV with only 2 working channels (24 hr soccer; and 24 hr preaching, in French).
