I've stayed in this hotel on numerous occasions for business, as we attend a trade show just next to it.
On the good side, it is the cheapest hotel around, and it's very close to the Palais des Expositions. If you walk 10-20 minutes (depends which way you go) you can get to some nice areas (i.e Convention), with restaurants, etc. Breakfast is OK, a buffet with some decent choice. The staff is rather pleasant, generally speaking.
Other than that, it is quite bad overall. There are a few decent rooms in the hotel, but most of them are rather terrible. Everything is very old, smells like dust; sheets don't look clean - neither do walls or bathrooms actually. Beds are not really comfortable. You can hear every noise from any room on the floor. The elevator is the smallest I've ever seen (1 person with a suitcase fits, nothing more) and probably the slowest, too. Avoid rooms on the highest floors if you have heavy luggage, or you could wait quite some time before you're able to get down.
In one of the rooms I stayed in, the shower is at knee level, and is merely 2 Ft long - try having a shower with that!
If price was 40% lower than what it is, you could say you get what you pay for. But at the current level of price, I can't recommend this hotel.
