We booked this hotel due to the lovely pictures on the website and the four star rating- the hotel lobby is small but charming, as were the staff we met, who were so nice in helping us get an early morning taxi and giving directions- however, the courtyard is shabby and our room was atop steep stairs, it was a non descript small room, no mini bar, cracked glass window, a small fan stuck on top of the TV, a worn wall to wall carpet and a strikingly ugly painting on the wall- no medeival charm or sense of an old monastary- no restaurant and far from the center of Annecy- can't IMAGINE how this hotel has any more than a one star rating- not a bad one star hotel, but FOUR? No way.
