The room was very comfortable, clean and big. Two double beds and enough space for our luggage. The bathroom was also clean.
The hotel is a bit old but directly at the Lido Beach. A few steps to the white sand. They have sunshades and canvas chairs on the beach to use for hotel guest and the sunset is amazing.
The staff are very friendly, helpfull and courteous. Every morning we got a newspaper.
Unfortunately the room price are not include breakfast. You can have your breakfast separate on the restaurant. You have a coffee maker in your room and a fridge and if you buy some things, you can do your breakfast cheap by yourself.
The center, St. Armands Circle is not far away (5 min) and a nice place to shop, have some drinks, lunch or dinner. We had a great time.
