We arrived at the hotel and despite no car park, due to its central location, there was street parking (both short term metered and long term free) to be found along the quayside.
We received a very friendly welcome and entered the tiny lift to our third floor room. Really modern tiled bathroom with walk in shower and fluffy towels, plasma TV, air-conditioning and hygienic wooden floors. The room was well presented but basic.
Free WiFi worked fabulous.
We had a river view room (31), as opposed to overlooking the enclosed rear courtyard. Traffic noise is quite loud from the main road below, despite the secondary glazing fitted to the traditional French windows, but the view across the river was worth it; otherwise sacrifice the view for a courtyard room.
No safe, coffee making facilities, fridge or anything else for that matter, just a lovely fresh clean room; as expected for a €77 hotel.
For the price paid, I would certainly return. We skipped the 7 Euro continental breakfast, despite the lovely presentation of the b'fast room.
