The hotel is in the old Palais de Justice and is an amazing building. Our room was on the ground floor and looked out on a small park - so you had to be careful to keep curtains closed at night but that was a tiny observation in such a lovely room - perfect for a few nights in an interesting town. They did try to sell us an upgraded room and breakfast as soon as we arrived ( when all we wanted was to get to the room and sit down!) but we rejected this and were glad we did. The gym and sauna/steam room were on our floor - small but did the job! We didn't use the restaurant but it looked very nice. The room had a kettle et al - our one complaint was that the maid didn't replenish the tea/coffee/milk - but a call to housekeeping soon resolved the matter. The hotel's position meant a walk to the more interesting areas for restaurants and cafés but we soon got our bearings so it wasn't an issue. The only thing they need to do is not have visible cabling for lights in the lobby - it spoils the whole look and they were really noticeable when you used the stairs on the way down ( you didn't look on the way up as the lobby is just too incredible for you to be distracted!)
