Good hotel for the price
Posted Sep 14, 2009 on Hotels
The hotel is located in the south side of St Etienne and close to mass transit and the main mall of the city. Generally good location but few "large" restaurants around, however, there were many markets and small grocery stores nearby.
The rooms themselves were pretty sparse, but nice and clean. New floors, hardware, paint and linens. The rooms also included a balcony and a very tiny TV (FYI - all 5 channels in French). This hotel/apartment is clearly geared for longer stays as it includes a kitchenette, microwave and small refrigerator and did include wireless internet. The hotel was undergoing renovations and at moments had some unpleasant odors in the hallways, but overall not too bad. The breakfast was limited but decent.
Given that no other hotels were generally available when I booked it, this hotel was good for the price and the comments mentioned above.
LARGE NOTE: The office hours (currently) are 9 am - 12 pm and 2 pm - 7 pm, so if you checking in at some other time call ahead!
