We had a 4 night stay at the hotel and found it very comfortable. We had a lake view which was gorgeous. The windows were good in blocking out street noise at night, though there wasn't much of that except for Saturday night. The bathroom had a huge soaker tub which is a nice change from the tiny shower stalls you often find in European hotels. The breakfast was delicious. Though it was the same every day, there were lots of options: various breads, croissants, cheeses, cereal, yogurt, fruit, meat, etc. Certainly enough food to fill you up for a day of sightseeing. The only complaint we have about the hotel was the noise from the cleaning staff in the morning. Our room was at the end of the hall next to the closet for the cleaning staff. We'd be woken up from their talking in the hallway at around 7:30 each day. Other than that, the bed was comfortable and the hotel was otherwise quiet and we could get a good night's sleep- it would just end a little sooner than planned some days. The hotel is extremely convenient to the metro and the ferries. The front desk staff were very helpful and accommodating. They did speak English very well, but were appreciative of our attempts to speak French. One of the staff even told us that she likes to speak English to customers when she can so she can practice.
