We had a good stay in this hotel. Big advantage: the parking that is literally around the corner and the location in the middle of the city center! The rooms were clean and the staff very friendly. The neighborhood could be a bit questionable at night though, but no problem if you are careful or take your car.

I never felt so desperate during my extensive travels even beyond the borders of this country. They insisted that I pay some portion of the money despite producing a purchase order and said it would be reversed within two to three days. Now it's the fifth day and counting... I wonder whether it will happen....

Hotel clean and tidy and very central to everything staff very friendly and helpful especially francois and alen. Fantastic for having a place to sleep and getting out and about easily enough and felt very safe with our surroundings.

We were happy wit our choice of the hotel as it is located right in the middle of the town, a lot of point of interest in walking distance. The room was very spacious but unfortunately in opposit of the lift, which was disturbing during the night.

Great location, the staff was friendly and the rooms were clean. They took care of us. The Wi-Fi is terrible!, and too limited. The breakfast was boring, but I think that can be fixed. Will definitely visit again!
