“Hotel in good location”
Reviewed June 13, 2012

The hotel is in a good location. The rooms are big and very clean. The bed is not really good and the breakfast-room is too small.

Small room opening onto common terrace.
Tiny bathroom with poorly flushing toilet.
The furniture was old and one chair was broken
It appeared sometime since there had been a spring clean!
It was not particularly close to anything. Breakfast was basic.
It was however a lovely old building!

The hotel is located 5 mins walk to the train station, and 15 mins to the historic centre. Safe location. The hotel is a bed and breakfast. The rooms are really basic, tiny bathrooms, shower cubicles are very small, in general basic decor. However, it is clean, there is a lift, and serves the purpose if you want to limit time in the hotel, and use it as a night stop. Staff are friendly. The breakfast is also uninspiring, better to step out and grab some breakfast. There are several good places nearby. There is air-conditioning. The rooms on the sixth floor have a shared terrace, with some nice city, building views. Great place for a few glasses of wine in the evening.

Room Tip: Pick a room on the 6 floor, as these have terraces, which are great.

This hotel was okay, but just. My husband described our room as a "cell". The windows were high so there wasn't much light coming in and you couldn't see out. The thing that really bothered us were the signs warning you not to do any laundry in the room or you would be charged 50% of the room rate as a fine. We have traveled all over the world and this is the first time we have ever seen anything like this.

What can I say about this hotel?
On the brilliant side:
The location (near everything and 10 minutes walk from the riverside); charming, helpful, efficient staff ; great terrace (book these rooms) where you can relax on a sun lounger (albeit with other 'terrace room' guests), or sit out at night and watch the stars ; not bland!...mad, retro, quirky lounge and display cases of 20th century ephemera and eclectic vintage furniture in the hallways ; fabulous deco staircase; OK, but repetitive, breakfast...come early if you want any choice!; Free WiFi (often not free in even the top hotels).
On the downside...The rooms badly need refurbishing! Ours was small (but we had use of the terrace), shabby, with cheap basic furniture, terrible lighting, threadbare rug, tiny old fashioned bathroom with a bits missing from the tap, a threadbare towel etc.
If only the rooms were modernised, this place would be a treasure!!!
We had a good deal, a great time and it wasn't expensive, but I would only recommend it if you don't need luxury in your room.

Room Tip: Terrace rooms are probably smaller, but access to the terrace is worth it.

very old-fashioned hotel. Furniture in the rooms very outdated, Carpets were threadbare. We had a room at the back with small windows, perhaps for the best since the view from these windows was appalling. But it was clean. Limited breakfast-buffet.
