When I arrived at this hotel, it was the end of September. Although the hotel was very central, it did appear to be a little shabby. First thing I noticed was the very dirty windows on entrance, then at reception a smile would not have gone a miss to welcome us. I proceeded to my room, comfortable, but a little dated now and no tea and coffee facilities, but we did have a glass.
The decor was shabby with a leaking radiator and tiles missing around the bathroom , I think the drains are all linked as there was a smell somedays, not really pleasant.
The breakfast room was also a tapas bar/cafe and open to anyone who wanted to come in, a bit cafeteria and not very comfortable. Breakfast was very basic, the only thing hot was an egg, and you had to cook this yourself, oh and coffee, which was not very hot. I gave this a miss and had breakfast out.
I did not feel this warranted a 4 star hotel, it may have been in years gone by, but my rating would be a 2 and I feel this is being generous.
Forgot to say parking is a big issue, (only spaces for about 12 cars at a push) when I went there was only a handful of residents in the hotel, which could park ok, but if the hotel was any fuller, there would be nowhere to park at all. Big problem. View from room was excellent, Mont Blanc in full view.
