The hotel Volney is situated at the end of town furthest from the Gare and centre ville, next to a school and on a busy road so its not in a quiet or really handy position.
The front door is particularly heavy and difficult to push open with your luggage in hand and the room doors are not much easier to pull open.
The rooms are of average 2 star size and the bathroom slightly bigger than usual with quite good liquid soap.
The staff are friendly enough but room cleaning lacks something as our towels were left wet where we had left them and not even straightend including the bath mat still on the floor; we certainly should have put them in the bath to get them changed.
Breakfast though adequate with cereal yogurt and the usual breads and coffee was quite disorganised taking ages before milk butter coffee etc were served.
The stairway which is usual for this type of hotel is particularly steep and narrow and even we who only travel with hand luggage had a bit of difficulty with the stairs.
We only stay at 2 star hotels and can rate Volney as clean but average.
