“Good value for money”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 5, 2009

I stayed here for 3 nights with a friend.

We had read rather bad reviews and had no expectations but can only say that while it isn't fantastic, what do you expect with a price this good?
I was happy!

Location is great, and it is a short walk to the centre. There are some rather dodgy areas in close proximity but you can stay on the main roads and it is all fine.
It is a no frills hotel which suited us perfectly.

We didnt have the breakfast in hotel as we wanted to find our own little spots in the sun outside.

The room was tidy and clean, the shower was great, and staff nice.

The view is non existent, but we literally only used the hotel for sleeping and it was conveniently located and a bargain.

I stayed here for one night with my boyfriend. The location is a bit far from the center (the hotel is marketing themselves as being located "10 minutes walk away" from the center) - it takes about 20 minutes by foot to the old port and there is also a bus stop near the hotel (from the bus stop it takes less than 10 minutes to the old port). The staff of the hotel only speaks French.

We found it really hard to find the hotel as the map in the hotel website is lousy and the street is so small that not many of the citizens knows where it is located (and of course they only speak French). If you go there make sure you print a proper map e.g. from Via Michelin (---).

The room was ok, a bit shabby but still clean although the floor was a bit sticky.. The bathroom is not that nice - it's old and the bath looks awful (dirty). There are no curtains in the window and it was facing another house so people possibly can see when you're showering. We took a room with "garden view" which ment that our window was facing an empty yard/alley and a white wall. It was not exactly what they promised in their website (they actually have a garden and apparently some rooms have a garden view). A good thing was that at least we didn't have to listen to voices of the traffic which would have been the situation if the room had faced to a street.

The walls of the rooms are like paper - they are not sound proof and therefore we listened to shouting that was going on in another room. The breakfast was good - we ordered it to our room and they charged the same price as if we would have eaten it in the breakfast room. It consisted of youghurt, juice, coffee, croissants, pain au chocolait and bread - everything was fresh and good.

  • Liked — The cheap price, breakfast
  • Disliked — The view from the window, paper-like walls, dirty bath
