This hotel is conveniently located around the corner from the train station on Avenue Jean Medecin, the main shopping street on which the tram runs.
The room I had was small but clean. However, it was divided by a diagonal wooden beam that ran from the top of the wall near the ceiling to the opposite wall, about 3 feet (0.9m) off the floor. I assume it was supposed to be decorative, but it was hazardous. I'm only 5'2" (1.57m), but I had to keep ducking to avoid hitting my head. There was a round pedestal table with two cheap-looking clear plastic chairs. Most unattractive of all was the shag carpeting (!), something that went out of style in the 1970s.
The bathtub had tall sides and was difficult to step into. It also had peeling enamel, and some of the grout around the tub was dirty and black. However, the water was hot and the pressure was good.
Breakfast was 13 euro, which I think was overpriced considering the number of cafes in the area, and the fact that my previous hotel had breakfast included. I did not eat breakfast in this hotel.
Overall, this is an OK hotel for a night or two, particularly if you are arriving or departing on the train or airport bus. It is also walking distance to most of the sights in the city and the tram is right on the corner. However, there are other hotels in the area in the same price range that have bigger and more attractive rooms and more amenities.
