This compact and bijou hotel is in the most convenient of locations. The 15 minute bus ride from the airport drops you just a 5 minute walk away. You are in instant reach of a huge range of bars and café's. The beach, Place Massena, Vieux Ville, local parks, museums, galleries and shops are all within easy reach. The area feels safe at night. Reception / check in / out was easy - you arrange with the hotel before arriving. Rooms were very clean and, although compact, offered good facilities. There is no lift, you need to be aware of this is stairs and heavy luggage factor into your hotel decision making. However being 3 floors up means you're in the heart of the action but, thanks to good glazing and air con you can shut out the noise of the city. We stayed in room 2 which has a sweet little balcony to sit out on and watch the world go by. There was a fridge and safe in the room as well as tea making facilities. Breakfast is OK value for money given the expensive city centre prices but you can find more for less if you hunt for it. There's not a lot of luggage / storage space which could get annoying if you stayed longer than a few days - we just had hand luggage so managed 3 days ok. The beds are super comfortable - I would say medium firm - between us we had one 5 month pregnant person and one person with a very bad back and we slept very well. Cleaners came daily. My only minor grumble was the bathroom though well appointed is very very small.
