The hotel is in a brilliant location - minutes walk from the bus station where the airport shuttle stops and also from the metro station Jean d'Arc, which brings you from the airport too after a transfer at Palais de Justice from the T2 tram (€1.60 for the entire journey) Theafter no transport is required to see the major sights as they are all in walking distance. With regards the hotel - the staff,without exception were all very friendly, helpful and efficient. All areas were very clean. Lift to all floors is very efficient. Breakfast area is small but enough choice of food and never overcrowded because of the extended breakfast hours. Our room however was TINY. The beds were very comfortable, good quality linens and towels and the bathroom was a decent size with a separate toilet. The room had twin beds and a table with two chairs but that just about filled the space. A safe in the wardrobe was appreciated.
The free wine tasting and appetisers is no longer on offer. This was a huge disappointment to us as this was one of the reasons we had booked the hotel. We did however get a complimentary glass of wine on our first night as an apology! The small lounge at reception is a nice place to sit. However we did not like the fusball table being there. Luckily it was never in use whilst we were there but it is completely out of place in this hotel. In summing up, we did enjoy our stay here but did feel the room was far too small and it is definitely not in our opinion a four star hotel. less
