Not all bad.
Good location, close to U and S Bahn, a supermarket next door. Had a junior suite, spacious, clean. Good personnel at the reception, friendly and willing to help, very professional. The reception is dated but nice and cool, proper air con there. Common area clean and spacious. Restaurant has a dated decor but clean and well maintained. Restrooms clean and do not smell.
Internet free but you lose comm every 2 minutes, if you are lucky, usually every 30 secs. I would prefer to pay and get a good service.
No air con in a 4 star-hotel!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Yes you can open the window but the noise from the intersection is 24/7!!! Oh, they have some air con rooms at 5 Euro extra... But fully booked. My mistake, should have told my travel agent. (Called them and they were speechless, but could not get me an a/c room in the end. When fully booked, fully booked,) Charge 5 euro all the way and get them all air con!!!! I checked on the plate outside, and 4 stars means First Class... 5 stars would be Luxury. That wasn't 1st class. Decor very 80's, no face cloth - I know it is Europe, but 4 star, and a name like BW - no a/c, etc...
Breakfast not included and cost 14 euros... For that amount, I can eat like a king across the street for dinner! Go to Cafe Balsac close by and enjoy a proper latte...
The restaurant at night... Well our waiter had the personality of... Well better not say. We were in a rush and decided to try it instead of going out. Food was good, liver was rare as requested and the veal escalope was tender. Don't ask for the wine by the half litre. Either they cook it for hours or they store it over the roof in full sun... Hot and oxidised... Have a beer instead.
Summary, great personnel, charming and helpful (except for the waiter), clean facilities and well maintained, but not a 4 star-hotel and not good value for money. less
