“A very bad choice.”
Reviewed January 18, 2010

I traveled to Clermont-Ferrand to attend a medical course at local University. I choose to stay at Balladins Clermont-Ferrand Centre (also know as Marmotel) since it is close to the Hospital campus. On the other hand, it a good 30 min. walk from the city centre.
I am not going to spent a lot of time talking about this hotel but I will try to descript it in couple of words: 1) Small rooms of 7-8 sq/m 2) The place is very noisy since it is under construction (nobody inform be about it when I book it!) 3) I stayed for 5 days and they did not changed the sheet at all !! 4) Poor breakfast 5) No a Value for money (65euros per night it is a lot money for a bad hotel in a small French town!) 6) Free wifi but available only at the lobby due to bad transition)

Not good. Arrived late after a very long journey and when I got to reception to check in, there was a gentleman also checking in with what was obviously 2 women of a street walking profession. I was checking in with my husband and 6 children, so this was rather uncomfortable.

The hotel is very basic, our 2 quad rooms, smelt of smoke, body odour and stale air.

The beds however a another story altogether, the single beds had dirty sheets on them, hairs, crumbs and bits were in them and the pillows smelt of body odour. Me and the small children all slept in the double bed and a fold out bed which was clean. The place had not been cleaned at all, dust everywhere and coffee and hot chocolate sticky mug rings on the desks and table. Had it not been 11.30pm and the receptionist not speaking any English I would have walked out, but we had no where else to go.

We did not even try breakfast the next morning we just checked out straight away.

Would I go back? Never.
