“Most espensive F1 hotel woth worst quality (F1 level)”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 July 2011

Hotel is more expensive that similar Etape class hotels right across the border in France.
Toilets were dirty by F1 standard. Hotel appears worn out.
Consierge was polite and helpfull, but cant compensate for the building.

Unfindable in the middle of an industrial area. Not very clean. Matras as hard as stone and a pillow as thick as a napkin. Very very bad. The distance to the city centre is ok by car. I would recommend everybody to pay maybe 20 Euro more for a real hotel. And otherwise even camping is better.

We decided to stay in Formule 1, but we are never coming back again. The bathrooms are toilets were dirty, rooms smelled cigarettes, terrible experience. I was traveling with my grandma and another old lady, it was a difficult experience for them,

It was cheap. I got exactly what I paid for. The Wi-Fi will only work in the lobby, np with that. But is was not working, tried to get the night porter to reboot the server but he won't get off his personal phone call to work on it. Was working the next day.

Building reminded me of a army bunker, all concrete.

I'd recommend spending a little more and stay somewhere else.

Clean and comfortable, everything you need for no fuss overnight stay. We just needed a bed for a few hours en route and it served the purpose.
The only thing I didn't like was the smell of smoke in the room, even though our room was a no smoking room. This would be the only thing why I wouldn't choose this hotel again.
