Although out of the centre a little, there's no benefit from lack of noise. My room was on the street - and whilst not a main road, the traffic was endless, not least the endless scooters and mopeds the locals just love to rev up 24 hours a day. With the window open, it was impossible to hear the TV (which was not a problem, given the only English channel was CNN). Small shower room, with a hinged door on the shower itself which made access tricky. Large people beware.
I've stayed in hotels where noise traveled from room to room, but this was terrible. I think upstairs was having a non-stop flamenco lesson and next door was continually moving furniture to get the fung shui right. It might as well have been a dormitory with curtains separating.
As €15 for the usual French excuse-for-a-breakfast was exorbitant, we went out and found better choices. The "bar" advertised as such is purely the canteen style restaurant and rather a dreary place in the evening. Getting a drink relies on whoever is at reception multi-tasking, some of whom seemed happier than others to do so.
In a pricey town, it's at the value end of the market, so I may be being over critical. If I couldn't/wouldn't pay more then I would stay again despite its shortcomings. less
