My first feeling at the Bougainvillier was that it was a fire trap. I was staying in the new building, having to climb up the stairs to the top floor, which is quite demanding - I sometimes felt like I was climbing Mount Everest. This building is full of wood stuff, which made me feel all the more uncomfortable that my room had a locked window, preventing escape in case of fire, and there was not any passage to the roof or to anywhere where one could escape the smoke.
The location of the hotel is perfect, right in the center and overlooking the river. The room was very clean, but I had my doubts about the sheets. There was a faint smell of sewage floating in the room but to be fair, this is the smell of the city and I know it can also be smelled in the other hotels located on the river, even in the best ones. The staff was quite nice but a bit clueless, as I discovered after falling ill and trying to get an early flight back home with a high fever. The only assistance I got was one of the receptionists asking whether I was aware I would have to pay the hotel for that call. Thanks.
