The hotel was good but our room on the top floor (3rd floor) was very small, especially as we were staying for 5 nights; the posted price per night is 98 Euros per night, room only. We were aware there are no lifts in the hotel and it was hard work carrying a suitcase up to the third floor via a number of winding staircases, this hotel is not suitable for the very elderly or infirm.
The bed was very comfortable and the air conditioning was efficient, we needed it as it was 36 degree C every day during our stay. However the air conditioning unit did leak during one night and deposited a lot of water into my wife's handbag which was open and underneath the air conditioning unit.
Breakfasts were average for a French hotel with a reasonable amount of choice but only 3 choices of hot food. The breakfast room is very modern and clean.
The staff were friendly and spoke English.
Our room overlooked the town square with a lot of restaurants either immediately outside of a short walk away, despite overlooking the town square, with the windows closed we could not hear any noise at night. Our room also overlooked the Fortress on the escarpment above the town.
Parking is in the public car park 1 minutes walk away, parking is cheap, about 1.5 hours for 50 cents. Parking is free in the car park near the fortress, it can be reached via the free lift in the public car park by the hotel, it takes less than 10 minutes to reach that car park. less
