Location is good and the room was clean. I do not recommend this hotel, though. On my 1st morning, the housekeeper barged into my room, w/o knocking, while I was still in bed! I thought it was a fluke, but it happened *again* about an hour later, as I was getting out of the shower, and *again* on the 2nd morning, while I was in the bathroom. I also slept *terribly* (which is almost never a problem for me): bed was incredibly uncomfortable, walls muffled *no* sound, elevator was painfully loud.

Good value for money.


You have to physically lock our room door with a key on both te inside and the outside. 10-15 min walk down town. 30 minute walk to Midi station. It is on an extremely noisy street. I slept fine with earplugs.


Room was a bit stuffy and could do with air conditioning especially for the nights like when we were there which was really hot. Floor was very creaky and shower quite small.


The rooms were very clean and toiletries were provided which was nice, but the wifi was spotty in my fourth floor room. Also, the upstairs was HOT. I wish the skylight window would have been opened prior to us checking in because it took a while to cool down.


I stayed for one night and didn't have breakfast but a friend who did told me the coffee was excellent. All the staff was very helpful and friendly. The hotel is in the city center, a 10-minute walk from the Central Station (Gare Central) and the Central Square (Place Central). The room only cost me about 60 euros, very clean and comfortable, with a pleasant garden view (ground floor at the back).
