The breakfast buffet,although expensive,has several less usual items.There is a huge automatic orange juicer and two of the trendy type coffee machines.These can provide real boiling... More

This hotel is right in the city centre and if you are lucky, you might be able to park temporarily in the yellow hatched box outside the hotel, but only to check in and drop your luggage. You will have to pay €16 for the privilege of using their car-park which is a couple of blocks away. However, for your... More

Location: With car, the hotel can be accessed via Av. du 11 Novembre 1918 and Rue Thiers. Centrally located. Car park cost EUR 16 per day at Rue Jules Labat. Hotel: Fast, very friendly check in. Small, old, non-functional lift. Bright room. Uncomfortable beds and pillows. Poor sound proofing walls. Good A/C. Very good shower. Free Wi-Fi.
