Grand Old Dame of a hotel
Posted Jun 1, 2015
Located in the center of Mulhouse, this beautiful old hotel has some really nice new ammenities llike a sizeable elevator, gated parking lot, heating/cooling unit in the room. We arrived in time for the poor lady at the front desk to check in 2 bus loads of people. Our patience was rewarded with a larger family room which gave us room to spread out. Despite the onslaught of people, the woman was always courteous and polite. The huge bathroom reminded me of the 70's with a huge tub with hand held shower head and a bidet. Everything was clean and good shape. Because the neighborhood didn't look promising for a morning breakfast we decided to take the buffet at the hotel. The breakfast room was hard to find because the sign was blocked by a large message board but the staff pointed out the room to us. The buffet included sliced meats, cheese, yogurt, cereal, breads, etc. and cook your own boiled egg station. This hotel was good value for money because the area around it is on the down slide. I had to give the hotel staff a less than perfect score because the cleaning staff in the morning were very unfriendly and unhelpful in letting us in the back door when they saw us carry stuff to the car and didn't have the door code when we wanted to go back into the hotel.
