“Terrible and freezing cold!”
Reviewed 24 March 2013

We opted to stay here because we just wanted to get some sleep for a few hours and we still had a long way to go. It was only 31 € for 1 room for 2 persons, so it was very cheap. A good budget solution for a stop on the way.

BUT the rooms were very dirty and very cold! The bed linnen had stains all over and there were even cigarette burn marks on the cover sheet.. It was freezing cold in the room and the sheets could not keep us warm because they were so thin.. We had to keep all of our clothes on, including a warm sweater.. Also the room was like a cardboard box. The walls were so thin, you could hear everything! There was someone watching TV and it was very loud so we could hear this very clearly.. The hotel also smelled like cigarettes everywhere.. We left as fast as we could in the morning and would never choose this hotel again!

Reviewed 30 April 2012 via mobile

I'm having a hard time believing some of the reviews here. This is basic, budget accommodation, so you get a basic, budget room in a basic, budget setting.

No issues with cleanliness during our stay, just a slightly stale smell in the room that half an hour's open window didn't quite fix. Decent bed, decent towels, decent showers. Think hostel rather than hotel, just without the communal kitchen.

To me, this was a convenient place for two to spend the night at just 30 euros, allowing us to pick something more upmarket the following night. If, to you, that price has to buy some more creature comforts, France may not be the country for you.
