I am wondering if some of the comments are provided by real guests....
This hotel is well situated but should not rewarded with 4 stars.
The hall is small and smelly.The cost is absolutely not reflecting the real standard fr the rooms and services.
We had a double room for the week (business and tourism) and a single room for the week-end. The double room size was ok, but just ok. We had to stay on artificial light all the time because the room was on the 1st floor, on the main street, so there was no possibility of letting the curtains open with some needed privacy.The equipment of the bathroom was strangely set, such as this soap dispenser at the other end of the shower head. The bed was really bad, we got painful backs after the first night.
The single room was very small and certainly not worth the price.
Homemakers knocked at the door quite early on a week-end.
The wifi was the poorest ever, slow and disconnecting.
At check out, we discovered that one night (wednesday) was charged nearly 3 times the rate of other nights. We could not get an explanation because no manager was on duty, which is quite surprising for such a hotel. We had a complex and unsatisfactory explanation on email later but the global feeling is really frustrating.
At check-out too, an excursion had been charged on our bill which we never ordered. Since it was taking time to check (they of course would not believe), I was asked to come back later because several people were queuing. That means that because I asked to get the right bill, I was put apart. How would you call that?
We made the reservation knowing the total rate, but we consider this is really too high for the services we got.
The hotel is proudly showing 'Trip Advisor' recommended' sign. This has to be taken out.
