I think I would recommend this hotel more for its location than for the hotel itself. It is situated just a couple of minutes from William the Conqueror's castle (le Chateau Ducal); just as close also is the Tourist Office, which itself is just a few metres distance from the tram/bus office (with the odd name of Twisto). In fact they were more helpful than the Tourist Office in indicating to me the places I could visit by bus to the outlying villages and beaches. An extremely useful "tip" was to buy a ticket for 7Euros - covering travel for three days within the city, but also included outlying places such as the beaches, around six miles away. Having these offices so near to the hotel was very convenient, as was the tram stop for the main-line station (about 10 mins on the tram).
Most travellers arriving in a 3-star hotel would expect to find toiletries available in the bathroom, but in this hotel there were just two liquid soap dispensers, no doubt in the interests of economy and ecology, so I regretted not having bought with me my own shampoo. Having said that the cleanliness of both room and bathroom was impeccable and the bed was comfortable. However, I slept in probably what passes for both a single and a double, and I think for two people it was rather small (maybe some rooms could be more spacious though). What certainly was small was the lift: barely room for one person with a case, let alone two, it felt very claustropobic. Breakfast, at 10Euros, wasn't particularly exciting, view the fact that one might have expected a bit more imagination for a hotel in the three star category. The rooms were not very soundproof, and I was disturbed by the voices of my next-door neighbours at night. On a more positive note, the hotel staff were very helpful, and they are present 24/24.
All in all then, a rather mixed bag of impressions about this hotel, for which I would not rate as a two-star one, three neither, but maybe two and a half!
