We spent 2 nights there and the location is great just a short walk from the center and the Port. They have private parking ( fee ) but you will need to reserve in advance. Our room, Suite Albane, at the 1. floor was to the garden/parking and very calm surrounding.
The Hotel has several very interesting designs in the public area as well as in the room but should not sacrifice functionality for style. The bathroom is just too dark with its blue light, to put on make up is a guessing game and the outcome could be ' Frankenstein '. Also the bathroom is small and has a shower which doors don't close properly, means one will need to hold a foot against the door to avoid hitting ones back. We did comment on this at check-out time.
Our suite ( 289.00€ ) had 2 rooms, the bedroom had a safe which was not mounted, does that help the thieves ? 1 small bottle of mineral water just in the first night, it was not replaced as empty, so we used the minibar and got billed. The living room we did only use to store our suitcase. Due to a thunderstorm they had problems creating the room-key so we were offered a tea/coffee and waited in the lobby. Unfortunately the next day it did not work anymore, so back to reception to get a new one. Overall an interesting place and breakfast for a fair value. With a few changes it could become real great.
