“Unsuitable for sleeping”
Reviewed 7 July 2014 via mobile

Unsuitable for sleeping, no AC or fan, extremly noisy. Specially when the cleaning truck passes by at 5 am. Good location. It has double glazing which helps a bit but ut gets extremly hot. In general, Avoid.

I really reccomend going to Hyeres at least once in your lifetime. And if you go there Hotel du Portalet is right in the centre of where it all happens. It's a small quite worn hotel just where the old town meets the new part. Hospitality an service is very good and so is the breakfast. So if you like it simple but still clean and nice this is a good choice for a small amount of money.

The hotel is situated in the very centre of Hyères and yet very quiet. The staff is very considerate and helpful with guests. The rooms are quite nice and the furniture, though not high quality, has been renewed recently. Room 19 has an interesting layout and a balcony with a glimpse of sea view. All in all good value for money.

Our flight arrived after midnight so hotel all in darkness. An envelope on the outside door gave the code for the door. Our keys to our rooms had been left on the reception desk. No lift - so we had to carry suitcases up stairs. Rooms very basic but bed clean. There is some noise from outside but we were too tired to notice. Next morning went to use the shower and couldn't turn the tap off - had to fetch the lady from reception who tried to help but really needed a plumber. Eventually got it turned off - and I admit I thought it was really funny but then I wasn't the one stuck in the shower. Breakfast OK - location for exploring the town idea. We didn't have a car so had to walk to the taxi rank for transport back to airport. For the money - it was OK.

Room Tip: Rooms were clean.

BEWARE: This hotel doesn't show up on driving maps! It is on Place Portalet, a walking path. Rue Limans, the stated address, does not allow cars. There is no parking. If you have a car, you must park about 3 blocks away and carry your luggage to the hotel. Very dated, no a/c. Room 9 (on 2nd floor) was quiet since it didn't face the traffic of the nearby streets. Room size was approx 8'x 10', not including bathroom. Bed was lumpy and tired, as were pillows. No lift, a problem for those with heavy suitcases.

Nice breakfast in the morning for 6.5 euros.

Don't think I would stay there again. Although the location near the old town is good, there are much nicer hotels for similar price with nicer amenities in Hyeres.

Had huge suitcase as traveling, but as on 2nd floor (long way up steep stairs) the manager very kindly let us decant what we needed for one night into small bags, and we were led up the woodchipped staircase to our rooms. To say I was disappointed was an understatement. Tiny single rooms with a loo cut out of the main room and a massive plastic shower with lots of gismos that didn't work (obviously a bulk buy as my friend had one too...). Tired carpet and the same awful woodchip...I thought the thing was nowadays to provide a room that the owner would want to stay in....I dare him/her to stay one night there.
Staff very pleasant however, couldn't fault them!
