This place well deserves the excellent reviews it's already got. In particular, it's very good value in what is otherwise a very expensive city for the UK traveller on a pound/euro exchange rate near parity (Sept 2009). Things would have been different a few years ago there of course. Don't be put off by the bustling Rue Massena as you arrive at the hotel as it's set back behind a courtyard and is in fact very quiet. The proprietors have given this place quite a bit of charm with the personal touches, and it's also spotlessly clean. The rooms are quite small as is to be expected at this price, but perfectly adequate. The staff are also very welcoming and friendly. One additional very useful thing not mentioned on the website is the free wifi. If I had to pick a small fault it would be the slightly erratic temperature and weak pressure of the shower, but it's no worse than many others at twice the price. Location wise, Rue Massena is not my thing, but the Old Town is very nearby, as is the coast and beach, both about 10 mins walk maximum.
