Very good location in centre of town, easy 10-15 minute walk from station. There is a small Carrefour supermarket just down the road.
stayed five nights to visit student son over New Year.
Booked online and paid discounted price. we stayed on the third floor
The hotel had more or less everything we wanted - after the first disturbed night - peace and quiet (if you are sensitive to noise and/or like an ajar window even in Winter avoid the side of the hotel with even numbered rooms as you can hear the constant hum of an electrical something on the roof opposite - we moved room to the other side of the hotel and it was fine)
comfortable bed, good pillows, wi fi, fridge, kettle (take your own t- bags unless you like vervaine or french liptons and only one of each is issued per day!), tv, ensuite bath/shower and seperate loo. thin smallish towels
the hotel lacked charm and atmosphere. the stairs were dimly lit and there was a strange damp smell from time to time. It did not feel like a four star hotel - more like two or three. Only one member of staff was helpful and friendly - a young black man who was on duty some evenings - the others were polite verging on frosty especially the lady I had to convince to let us change rooms because of the hum - fortunately my French was up to the task!.
At 12 euros per person we thought breakfast far too expensive to even try once - you can buy your own croissants and take them to a cafe to eat with a coffee for far far less.
this hotel served it's purpose but I was expecting something more special and luxurious than I experienced from a four star BestWestern......
