Stayed here seven years ago. The rooms have been upgraded since then but are still very small. Lots of noise from street and elsewhere in the hotel. So why stay here? Location. You are in the middle of a magical place. Go out the back of the hotel directly to the ramparts. Get ahead of the tour groups by being first in line when the abbey opens in the morning. Staff is welcoming.
Cooking is mediocre but fixed price meal offers oysters and cheese so the meal can still be good. Breakfast is good and lots of choices.
