Agree with previous reviews - clean, tidy, good location and value for money if your expectations are realistic. We were there for 2 nights.
3 issues however which spoiled our enjoyment of a rather charming hotel in its own way.
1. First morning no hot water. Staff we're charming and apologetic but that does not compensate for no shower or bath to start the day after you have been travelling. No compensation offered.
2. Very hard bed may suit some people but it killed my back so be warned.
3. No fresh orange juice or oranges for breakfast! In a city where dozens of orange trees laden with ripe fruit can be found on every street corner - surely this is unforgivable? The sugar and additive laden excuse for orange juice offered was undrinkable so we went across the road to a cafe for fresh juice.
However all the positives stressed by other reviewers are valid insomuch that staff are friendly and helpful in French and English. So I can recommend this to anyone on a budget for a short stay - but go with realistic expectations from a 3 star facility. No restaurant but plenty to choose from within a few minutes walk.
