Nicely located in the center of a beautiful Saint Raphael. The entrance is not easy to find and it is strangely funny to enter by the cafe and then follow toilets/reception...
Room door would not close, unless you use a key.
It was +16C outside, but the air conditioner is set for heat only and it was a sauna in the room. Opened the window, but it is very noisy. So, could not sleep well in the heat.
When reserved the room, breakfast was not included, ok. In the morning, when my wife and I sat in the cafe and just asked for a couple of coffees with a croissant, the waitress asked if we were staying at the hotel. When confirmed, she asked in which room and then checked her paper, and said that the breakfast was planned for us and indicated in her sheet as included. We agreed and were taken to a dining room. Breakfast is store bought ham and packaged cheese, cheapest possible juice and burned croissants. The SURPRISE was when paying the bill, we got charged 12.50 euros per person! That was THE most expensive coffee and croissant we have ever had. Perhaps, it was my misunderstanding, but everything needs to be verified. Even though the reservation was for 119 euros/night, the bill showed only 95, but that was a "mistake".
Bottom line - very expensive for what you get. Everything needs to re-confirmed not to have surprises..
