The reviews are accurate for the most part. We spent three weeks in France and Italy and booked everything based on the reviews on Trip Advisor. Everything met our expectations and we would stay at all of the hotels again on any future trip. Our budget allowed for mostly 3 star accommodations and although this is rated 2 stars, it feels like 3. As mentioned, the location is probably the best part of the Hotel Cardinal experience but there weren't any negatives. Probably our most pleasant surprise for all of the hotels was our ability to book rooms at the very center of every city at extremely good prices without really sacrificing good accommodations. That is a pretty good description of the Hotel Cardinal. If you're driving, the Carnot parking structure is a short walk away with good prices.
