Taking the price into account, one does not expect 5 star luxury, but that is was this bad, I did not expect. The only positive I can discover here was the location, very near to the town centre of Colmar and the large free (public) parking opposite the hotel.
Upon entering we found ourselves in a shabby and chaotic lobby were we had to pay the room in advance (there might be a good reason for the hotel to have this policy, but for me it raised some resistance). Went to our room and found ourselves in a tiny ‘’cupboard’’ of a room, where immediately the curtains came down from the ceiling. I went to the reception and asked for another room with twin beds and got another room on the 4th floor, again a very, very tiny room, where we could not store our clothes, let alone our suitcases.
We had a nasty night, constantly struggling with the bed sheets and the rooms were so noisy, that even the slightest sound from the other guests were heard. The other guests were not even noisy, just the normal noises were overheard.
We booked for 2 nights, but checked out the morning after our first night. (We did get a refund, so that is in a way something positive).
Breakfast is an additional 7,50 euro, of which I still ask myself if that was worth it.
If you want to stay cheap and don’t mind all of these thing, by all means book a room, but I will not do so again, I did stay in cheap hotels, with small rooms, one expects lesser comfort, but in this case it was far below the average.
