“Breakfast a joke! Hotel not suitable for a Family! Noisy! Broken A/C, tiny but clean rooms.”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 September 2012

We just came back from here after staying one night (a conveniently centrally located hotel) in advance of our booked flights home after a weeks vacation out in Port Burgenay on the Coast. To say that we were disappointed with our stay would be an understatement. It was one night of torture. When we went to check in we were advised that there was no record of our booking (we booked through Soosh only an hr earlier, so we allowed for this) We gave them a print out of the booking and suggested we leave our bags and go away for a bite to eat. We came back a couple of hrs later and checked in and our room was on the fourth floor, across from the lift (so we were constantly listening to it!) To be fair the room was bright, clean and newly renovated. It was tiny though and really not adequate for a family (two adults and one infant) There is little room to walk around beds and with our added baby cot in the room it was crammed. The room was to the front of the hotel and way too warm, there was A/C to our delight, however, this was broke and only working on one setting (on full!) which meant that it was no good to us without putting it on for ten minute intervals and then having to turn it off as got too cold. The noise at night from outside was ridiculous up until 4am..with windows closed (We are a young couple who know how to party!) and I had ear plugs to drown out the noise. We paid an additional €25.00 for a so called breakfast, please unless you get it for free in your booking, do not avail of this. There was only stale bread one choice cereal (cornflakes) no coffee and no juice at 9.20 am (breakfast served until 10.00am) Reception staff look after the breakfast buffet so on asking a couple of times we got coffee and juice. In all I would say that this Hotel is not ideal for families unless they have larger rooms that can accommodate this.Maybe go out for breakfast, as what you get in hotel is not a substantial Continental breakfast.

Dear customer,

I' m realy sorry to be informed, your stay in our hotel was one" night of torture".

First of all, I wanted to let you know unfortunatly the day of your departure, we moved furniture from the first floor to begin rooms renovation .
Our coffee percolator crashed at 7 am this morning and we prepared coffee manually, it was long and laborious.
We apologize to you for that situation, we were wrong we can say that...and may be more...

After reading your message, we verified the A/C in room 437, the room we suppose you were staying for one night. The air conditioning works at all three speeds and not only on full, but we need to verify this customer information following our quality process.

To answer to your question, we have larger rooms, triple and quadruple .
To get a family room , it's better to deal directly with the hotel staff and not to book via an "on line booking site", half an hour before check-in.
You would have preferred a triple room and not a double one with a free baby cot like precised on your electronic booking. It 's a shame for all of us.

Nadine Witczak.

This hotel is well located near Theatre Graslin, with bars and restaurants nearby. Whilst the room was compact it had everything you needed including a bar fridge. The hotel offered a laundry service, a good buffet breakfast and helpful staff.

This is a great little hotel in the town centre, near shops and within walking distance of restaurants and bars. About five minutes walk to the tram stop. We were on the fifth floor at the back of the hotel. We stayed for seven nights, and experienced none of the problems with noise that other guests have mentioned. Although there are a couple of bars/restaurants outside they did not seem particularly noisy. The hotel was comfortable and clean, and the bedroom was a reasonable size for a city centre hotel The bathroom did have a hand held shower, but this was adequate. We thought it was worth having the breakfast. There was a lot of fruit and a good selection of breads, cake, cheese, yoghurt etc, and the coffee was good. Air conditioning worked well. We slept with the window open at night. The staff were lovely, charming and helpful. They all spoke English. Our 9 year old loved this hotel, and the receptionists were very friendly towards him.

We would have liked to have had tea/coffee making facilities in our room.

Great hotel, centrally located with very comfortable beds. The aircon is a little weak. Very very very good value for money.

Clean, small rooms, average budget motel, my only gripe was the distance from everywhere... Otherwise not too noisy, though we had the window shut it was not bad at all. Fairly difficult to find, I suggest you check google maps before getting there!

If I am not exaggerating I would say our stay at this hotel was awesome. Over past few trips we always had a hard time in finding a soothing place to stay and despite of being at a lovely place on vacation we could not enjoy our trips. But this hotel made our trip really pleasurable. It is actually a budget hotel with comfortable air-conditioned rooms and modern bathrooms at very reasonable price, hotel staff was sincere and co-operative and free internet access was available at the reception. Food quality served here was also of high standard, what I like most is the continental breakfast available in self service room. Rooms were sparkling clean and fairly quite, though on weekends bars were full of frenzied people but noise was not too intrusive and we could sleep comfortably in our room. I would recommend this place to everyone and each of my friends.

Great location, centrally located. Very helpful and friendly staff. Can be a bit noisy on weekends due to nearby bars. Upper floor rooms best for low noise. Good value. WiFi and lobby internet/computer included at no charge. Breakfast selections very good, nice ambiance in dining area.
