We stayed in this hotel mainly for the location. It is the first hotel as you enter the Mont so you do not have to drag your luggage too far. We also wanted to be able to explore the island before and after the crowds- and the crowds do come! (We were happy to be departing as they descended on the island.) It is fun to be able to be right there, and for that reason the hotel was perfect.
But, be forewarned, you will have to climb lots of narrow, winding, steep steps to get to the rooms - at least 3 floors worth! Rooms are very small and very shabby. Bathroom was interesting...hand held shower head, but no place for it to hang up high. Price was very high for the quality of accommodations, but unfortunately everything from hotels to restaurants are very overpriced here - so it you want to go to the Mont, you will pay for that privilege. We did not eat the breakfast at the hotel. It was an extra charge and very pricey. They did have free wi-fi at the hotel.
Overall, if you can handle one night in a basic accommodation, this hotel will do since the location is great.
