First the positive. On being told that neither the internet nor TV was working, the owner immediately gave back 20% of the fee. Secondly, the local manager, Cathy, was extremely willing to both try to solve problems and did so with a great attitude. When the hot water disappeared, she was able to talk us through the repair. However, this was a very disappointing place to stay despite its superb location. The place is tiny, getting into and out of the Loo actually took some working out. The bed is jammed between two walls so you have to climb your way to sleep, cooking is simply not possible in the galley-kitchen so in the event you visit the wonderful market down the the road, don't imagine you will be able to cook the local produce too easily. Then there's the vagrancy issue. Through no fault of the owner, outside Le Bonheur is where the local drunks seem to seek both shelter and relieve themselves - creating an almighty stench. But the main reason I chose to post this review is safety. I think it vital for those considering staying at Le Bonheur to know that the flat is criss-crossed by electric cables running from the sockets, up walls and across ceiling to light fittings. A child might pull away at such a cable on the wall, while the damp air emanating from the bathroom (which has no window or vent) could easily create problems. Indeed, visitors should carefully examine escape routes in the event of a fire. Put simply, this excellently located studio-style space is in urgent need of modernisation.
