    Great

    the location was excellent if you are using the train station...only about 1-2 min. walk and the area felt safe. there was a great italian restaurant around the corner that stayed open late (11p or later?). the city center & pedestrian area was only about 10-15 min.walk. the hotel was very clean&quiet-no noise heard from the other rooms. the breakfast buffet started at 4 am & you could just help yourself to coffee if that is all you wanted at 1.50 euro per cup, which was quite reasonable. it was a self service breakfast room with plenty of tables and a tv. on the way back to your room, you would tell the lady at the front desk what you had, whether it was 'the buffet' or how many cups of coffee you drank & she would add it to your bill.

    the picture shows a tub/shower combo, but we had a small square (enclosed w/a door) shower & the bathroom was tiny (my husb.is 6'2"~225lb-anyone larger may have trouble)-but was kept very clean. no english tv station. staff was very nice-1 knew a little english, so conversation was a little tricky for us(not knowing french). no microwave in lobby as pictured. very small room but great price &nice staff made up for that.

    Great

    The receptionist at check-in (about 2pm on 93Jul) was extremely helpful.

    All descriptions of this hotel indicated a bar was on the premises. There was a nice bar and lounge but it was never open. My husband and I enjoy a nightcap after a full day of shopping and sight seeing.

    Overall well designed and equipped for the money, breathes a somewhat luxury athmosphere,certainly given the price.

    Very small tv far from the bed, front side is at a busy road. Closed windows keep the noise away though.

    Great hotel, staff and location.

    The room was smokey, but we had a discount for that. This is the only reason for lower scores for cleanliness and comfort. Otherwise, everything was great.

    The location was good -- bakery almost right next door was phenomenal. Rate was competitive for a 3 person room and the staff were very friendly, made us feel welcome.

    The room was a little musty-smelling, albeit very clean. Could have been a previous smoking room, as the smell went away when we were able to open the window.

    Comfort and availability of very early breakfast. If tea / coffee making facility was available in the room it woul be close to perfect and even better value for money.

    Parking is difficult unless you can get into the hotel car park.
