They try... perhaps not hard enough
Posted Oct 2, 2008
Stayed at this hotel for 4 nights while on a weeks leave. Generally speaking, the service at the hotel was pretty good. My french is terrible, I know enough to be able to get by and have a basic conversation with someone in French. Upon check-in I apologised to the conceirge that my French was not the best and attempted to check-in. Although he did me a huge favour by carrying out the transaction in English, I was somewhat disturbed when he claimed that there was no booking in my name! 20 minutes later he "found it". Very few of the staff at the hotel speak English, although most will endeavour to help you even if they can't understand you. The rooms are definately not as clean as you would expect, marks on the walls, linen is in poor condition as are the towels and rooms in general. Oh, and beds aren't full-size. Good alternative for the budget traveller or those happy to be a bit outside of the city.
