By no choice of mine, I had to over night in martinique and so I stayed at the L'Imperatrice Hotel, which cost me 117Euro, almost EC$500. Upon arrival, there was no one at the Lobby to accept us. There were about three people moving back and forth carrying stuff from the elevator to an area that seem like a small restaurant or something. No one said a word. After standing there for a few minutes, I asked a young man who was going back and forth; where is the receptionist. He said that he is making cocktails and will be with me in a while. After a good 30 or so minutes, a man came wearing an apron looking like a barman. Any way other that the fact that he could not speak english, He was very impatient because he had to get back to making his cocktails.
Anyway after paying for the room, we went up to our utter surprise the room for such a ridiculous price was so so small. There was hadly any room to move around, Plus the toilet seat was broken, there was no iron available. There are no provisions for pluging your laptop and besides, what would be the point, since there was no internet available. To top this off, though the reservations were made for two, there was only one set of towels. There was no place in the shower to rest the soap, you hav to put it on the tiles in the base of the bath room. The bed sheets had stains all over. How unsanitary.
Since we had no choice, and it was just for a night, we made do. Next morning, when we got to the lobby, we apparently was suppose to be given a basic breakfast that no one bothered to tell us about when we checked in. So it was already too late for that. But what concerned us was the attire of the man serving two white people . He was in a shabby looking shorts, a vest and a worn out slippers. This was so unbelievable. That even made my opinion of this hotel worse.
I certainly would never stay at this hotel again, nor would I recommend it to someoneelse.
