Although there's always something fun to watch out the windows...It's hard to imagine a noisier place to attempt sleep. The busiest intersection in town is literally below the windows. Open a window and the room was filled with the smell of exhaust, keep the window closed and the room was often too hot to inhabit. To the left, freight trains, passenger trains and TGV run on 3 elevated tracks about 150 ft from room. The city hospital is just beyond tracks. Sirens all day and night. To the right, gangs of young men heading for the train station across the street scream and argue at all hours. Sidewalks below rooms fill with smokers to add to stinky air quality of hotel rooms.
Desk staff was rude and indifferent except for one woman who should train the others in how to act with customers.
The hotel catered largely to tour companies and always had a few coachloads of tourists in house.
Breakfast of boiled ham and cheese got old fast. The coffee is good and fortunately, there are several great boulangeries nearby.
This hotel is currently trying to get another star, attempting upgrades. A new luggage rack was brought to the room but cannot be opened in the tiny room if a guest wishes to get to bathroom or exit the room.On the surface, the room appeared spotless, further inspection proved otherwise. Changing sheets at least once during a 7 day stay and dirty mattress pads between guests is a novel idea. If you only offer one bath towel and nothing else to guest, it should be a towel that absorbs water and is larger than a dinner napkin. Simple Hotel Rule: toilet paper and soap should be in the room day one and every day after. The 'business' center is actually a 4'x4' closet in the lobby with computer, no air and bad lighting. Fortunately the rooms have fast wifi and you can sit on end of bed to work at a sliver of a desk.
Unless desperate or on a prepaid tour, skip this hotel and get some sleep.
