I have stayed at his hotel a number of times over the past few years going back to when it was the NH hotel.
Usually my stay has been in November so I hadn't noticed the lack of air conditioning but unfortunately on this stay I really did. The first night was uncomfortably hot even after the hotel had provided a desk fan. I had a room overlooking the courtyard which i think also restricts airflow into the room.
What puzzled me more was what looked like an air conditioning control on the wall. Admittedly no where on expedia or the accor website does it say that this hotel has air conditioning.
I had a good size room, 511, but my colleague had a slightly smaller room where the double bed is pushed up against the wall. My room was also next to the lifts but I didn't hear any noise from it.
I often have a bugbear about hotel showers and the lack of a thermostatic mixer......for some reason in this hotel I found the lack of this a real problem. The shower would go from cold to scaldingly hot in a matter of seconds. I would be very wary about letting a young child shower by themselves for fear of getting burnt.
I am not a lover of net curtains but feel that the rooms looking over the courtyard could benefit from these just to give some privacy without having to keep the blackout curtains shut to stop people from the properties across the way looking in.
Location wise the hotel is very central.
I have come away from this visit feeling probably more disappointed than normal as i had previously had good stays here.
