Very convenient to stay, some good hotels, most of offices, banks, restaurants are in the neighbourhood. During the day you can walk around free and safe, during the night things can be more complicated, as shops are closed.

The Plateau is a thriving and middle class established area in which many nice restaurants and the best B&B's are located. With every house and restaurant having its own security it is also relatively safe to stay and wander although, at first, these security measures...More
