My employer chose to book me into this hotel and the reviews I'd read left me expecting the worst, but to be fair (and after being here only two days!) it doesnt seem as bad as I'd expected.
Yes, the catering and service leaves something to be desired and no, the internet doesnt seem to work in the rooms. Guests on a short-stay will probably need to huddle around reception for an internet connection but those on longer stay should brave a trip to the Orange shop down-town and acquire a USB connection. Unlike most USB connections that automatically configure themselves onto your laptop, for some strange reason you have to take your laptop (and passport) along for them to install and configure the USB. It's worth being certain that you've "cleansed" your pc before the helpful assistant simply tries to open a previously visited site that you might not want displayed in public,,,,!
I get the impression the room standards vary considerably but mine's functional in every respect. My biggest gripe? No plug for the sink or bath, but along with a few other "essentials" I carry everywhere, my "one-size-fits-all" plug from the hardware store solves that problem easily.
The contributor who noted this as being the "best hotel he/she had ever stayed at" might have a vested interest or perhaps doesnt get out much.
