This is the most basic hotel I have ever seen so far. My room included a double bed with two pillows, four coat-hangers on a metal bar, a 50 x 100 cm wall table, a television with its remote control and a mirror. Nothing else. No chairs, only a stool. No bedside tables or lamps, only a small shelf and built-in lights in the rack of the bed. Not even a phone - I wonder how you could contact the front desk just in case you need to. The room and the bathroom were however clean and tidy and minimum toiletries were in place. In the end, this is all what you would expect from a budget hotel. The only pluses are free WiFi, which works sufficiently well, and a decent noise insulation - quite important being so close to the airport.
I was alone, without luggage, needed an overnight stay following an evening arrival, and had an early morning start up. I was pleased with the accommodation despite of its extreme simplicity because the hotel fit to the above needs. However I would not recommend it for any other type of stay because it does not offer anything else. It is an airport hotel, hence far away from the city center, has no public common areas and no restaurant. The only available alternatives for food are the Novotel or Hotel Companile, both located next door. Service was passible but anonymous, and most people at the front desk speak only French.
The hotel is located a few hundred meters away from Terminal 1 and can be easìly reached with a 10-minutes walk. However, please be aware of the following:
- the area around the hotel is seedy at night;
- the hotel does not provide shuttle service. If you are traveling with a lot of luggage you might better treat yourself to a different option.
