Stayed with my family 3 weeks ago. The hotel is actually situated far from the city center / shopping street, but it has its advantages. Location is Quiet at night (as the shopping strip can get noisy). There is construction happening in front of the hotel. i think they are building the underground train system.
Hotel rooms are basic. beds are clean, however the bathroom needs a bit of work. We heard noise from the pipes when we would flush the toilet, and the lavatory did not drain well. (i had to remove the drain cover, in order for the water to drain), shower was basic. Our towels were not changed.
Dimitri (the receptionst) however was the saving grace of the hotel. He gave us advice on where to go, what to do, and where to eat. He went out of his way to even help us track down an Ipad we left at the Orly airport. Without his help we would have not found my Ipad and would have not found the gardens w/ great views. Take the funicolare to the top of the mountain. You wont regret it.
breakfast was so-so...
All in all, i think that the place can be a great hotel. It just needs to be improved. Hopefully management can do something about my comments.
cleanliness is key.
thank you so much for having us!
