Good Location Near The Train Station, BUT...

Posted Oct 26, 2014
The hotel is less than one block from the St. Charles train station. Yet, it is not visible from the station and, therefore, a little difficult to find. Just go down the main steps from the station and cross the street. The hotel is on the left. The front desk staff was pleasant. The room lacks a phone but the staff will knock on the room door if you need a wake up "call". The room is quite small and spartan. Think of a budget motel in the U.S. and cut the room size in half. The bathroom was of adequate size, but impossible to take a shower and keep the floor from getting wet. Plenty of hot water. The hotel has an elevator. Pretty spacious but slow. The room heating/AC system worked inconsistently. Breakfast in France is expensive, as are many meals, by U.S. standards. The hotel continental breakfast buffet was pretty good and a good value, by local standards, when prepaying on the expedia website.

ok overall

Great value for money and excellent location within 100m from Saint Charles station. Everything else is average - room, neighborhood, service etc. Internet didn't work for a couple of hours but then they fixed it and I had uninterrupted connection after that. Would stay there again if they don't hike the price.

Central Location

Posted Apr 30, 2014
Pros: Central location.
Cons: The smell from the shower.
Location: Less than a 10 minute walk to the port. Nice little bar across the road on the corner.
Good location but close to railway station so a lot of hobos hanging around. There was a very strong smell from the shower hole like sewerage and sometimes it was evident in reception. The room itself was nice although a bit small. The staff were very friendly and helpful. The breakfast was very good and plenty of everything. Nice little bars close by.

Quality of the hotel is acceptable. Breakfast quite good. Room clean but very small ( room 209) . Suitable for 1 person. Heating system not well working as room rather cold. Necessary to insulate the window.

Very small room...but expected in Europe

Posted Nov 21, 2013
No safe in the room so a little bothersome to put your valuables in the front desk very small safe. Sketchy area, although very close to the train station. Breakfast like a continental breakfast but a full breakfast price.
