This hotel gives an immediate good impression,having a central location on a leafy boulevard,smart reception staff and an elegant staircase with short flights at an easy angle.There is also a surprisingly fast open-cage lift. The breakfast buffet,although expensive,has several less usual items.There is a huge automatic orange juicer and two of the trendy type coffee machines.These can provide real boiling...

This hotel is right in the city centre and if you are lucky, you might be able to park temporarily in the yellow hatched box outside the hotel, but only to check in and drop your luggage. You will have to pay €16 for the privilege of using their car-park which is a couple of blocks away. However, for your...

Stayed here for two nights at the beginning of a tour. It's a perfectly adequate hotel with helpful staff and clean, comfortable rooms. Breakfast was delicious.

Location: With car, the hotel can be accessed via Av. du 11 Novembre 1918 and Rue Thiers. Centrally located. Car park cost EUR 16 per day at Rue Jules Labat. Hotel: Fast, very friendly check in.

Dear HKasyouare, We thank you for having taken time to give an opinion on our establishment.
