Booked by telephone in morning and on arrival, that evening, I was given a second floor room overlooking the inner court. There was no airconditioning, which might be a problem in July and August, and there is no lift.
Room and bathroom were satisfactory and what one would expect from a two star hotel in this region.
The hotel is right in the centre of the old city but still only a hundred metres or so from the bus station, the cathedral of St Louis and an underground car park - all in Place de Verdun. Walk down the street outside the hotel for 150 metres in the other direction and you come to the covered market. Two museums, the hotel de ville and the "trade mark" towers are all within an easy stroll. It's only a little further to the tourist office, the nautical museum (on board ship) and the railway station, with much to see along the way.
There is a huge choice of places to eat and drink in the vivcinity.
