We stayed 3 nights at the tail end of our 2 weeks in FP. Desk staff seemed more helpful when we spoke to them in French. Hubby tried calling the front desk a couple of times(he speaks English only) and got hung up on once.
The view is ok. Room was huge(studio, 4th floor) and pretty clean. Noise was not an issue for us, pretty quiet when the balcony doors are closed. We didn't mind the dark décor and dim lighting in the hallways. We did not have an issue finding our room after dark.
What is up with the badly planned tub/shower?? There is just no way to keep the water from pouring out onto the bathroom floor.
The pool is unappealing and is completely shaded in the afternoon, so no tanning possible.
Weird thing was that the room had what looked like it should be a full kitchen, ie. full sized fridge, sink, cupboards, but no microwave or stove or hot plate. Seemed kind of like an unfinished kitchen.
Parking is free for guests in the underground lot, but it's unsecured, anyone can access it.
On the whole, a decent place. Convenient location to the market, ferry and roulottes. We would stay again.
