The room looked new and the bed was comfortable. Airport pickup and the cost of room makes it a very good deal. It would have been nice to have a coffee maker and maybe bottled water. There is a store at the bottom of the hill and you can walk to restaurants.

We stayed 2 nites at Fare Suisse, really appreciate the airport pickup, very clean room, nice dining, lounge area and the friendly staff. Beni and his wife are running a very good operation. Can thoroughly recommend for short stopover. Easy walk into centre of town and supermarket just down the road.

Beni and his staff are the highlight of this place. Free pick ups and drop offs. Having trouble communicating in French over the phone? They'll help. Rooms with private bathrooms are quiet and the aircon is very welcome as you swelter in the humidity. The breakfast is nice (cheese, meats, fruit, cereal, several types of bread) and worth the $10....
