They respected my wish to be on a upper floor to start. That was really helpful because this hotel can be really noisy. The guy at the reception desk could speak ENglish and fluent French. He was nice and friendly.
The room was bright but the windows did not close properly. The bedding quality was OK.
The good surpirse was the fridge and kitchnette for breakfast.
The bathroom is ok, not dirty but very old.
The good point is the terrasse where you can have a drink ( the reception sells bottles of wine and it is not expensive) and even enjoey your breakfast, there is always someone to talk with !
Oh and the elevator is a real experience ! Very old one, really nice ( typical from the 40s-50s) but can bear only 2 persons ( we tried 4 and we actually blocked it!!)
Very good situation, quite calm during the weekend. We have already recommended this place to a friend, because the room rate is cheap for this city !
