Our family stayed for four nights earlier this month, my husband and I in one room, our two teenaged daughters next door, and had a very positive experience. The rooms are maybe a bit cramped by American standards but probably good sized by European standards. Most importantly, everything was spotless and the bed was comfortable. Breakfast was delicious and had a nice selection at a reasonable price. The host was hugely helpful with tour info, bus tickets, and local information. We particularly enjoyed between able to help ourselves to a hot drink in the afternoon after our sightseeing. The only concern we had was quite a bit of noise from the street and bar below on Fri and Sat nights. Our host had warned us to keep our windows closed, but we were in the middle of a heat wave and there was no air conditioning so we had to have them open. On the weeknights, the area was quite quiet. The location is perfect, a five minute walk to the castle, a large variety of shops and restaurants, and bus stops. It's a 10 or 15 minute walk to the Abbaye des Hommes. We liked being on the pedestrian area and the weekend open air market. I highly recommend and I'd stay here again. My only suggestion is that they add a towel hook on the bathroom door as there is nowhere to hang a wet towel.
