The Grand Hotel claims 4 stars but I think around 3.5 stars is about right for this place.
Its an older, rustic style establishment. We had a renovated suite. The advertised rack rate is 260 euro for our room.
We had a double bed on a queen sized base so it was a bit too tight for us. The room had a seperate lounge- sitting area and a seperate bath and shower which was good. The air con struggled on our 30 degree day. Thankfully the windows opened, but mosquitos were a problem until we noticed a large can of spray was supplied and in the cupboard, so this problem was quickly dispensed with.
We found the staff not overly friendly, seeming to hold back a bit, but were pleasant if we made the first move and greeted them first with a smiling "bonjour". A smile always goes a long way, especially if it comes from you.
The hotel is in an excellent location right in the centre of the city. It has a small pool accessed from the second floor.
Breakfast/ Quite ok- nice cheeses, breads, juices, boiled eggs, fruit, some pastries, scrambled eggs, bacon etc. 7/10
Overall?..... A comfortable place to stay, lacking the "bling" of newer hotels- It had free WiFi.
I would stay again. 6.8/10 In my view.
