The inside looks better than the outside. The rooms are a good size, but a little out of date and in need of some refurbishment. All the physical attributes were of an acceptable standard. Well insulated.
Breakfast was good, but expensive (Euro16) ~ go around the corner for coffee and croissants at 25% of the cost. Front desk was friendly, but French speaking only.
The hotel is nicely located between the old town and the commercial/shopping district. All within walking distance, but it is also very well placed for all modes of public transport. Secure parking available, but you need to reserve.
On balance a fair value 3 star hotel. Nothing special but OK
