We stayed just for one night, driving from Brugge to Reims.
I booked it through the hotel and my reservation stated it would be a BUDGET room ,small with 2 twin beds in the basement.It was prepaid 4 months in advance.
We arrived an hour before check in, and the cool recepcionist told us "to go to get lunch and returnat 3pm."
We left the car in the hotel parking (15 euro a day) and went to the city center for lunch.
As the rain had stopped, we decided to visit instead of returning to the hotel at 3 pm, as our room was already paid.
Big mistake. When we returned ,there was a man at the front desk who checked us in and took us to a door opposite to the parking lot.
He gave us 2 keys, front door, room door, said 3rd floor and quickly left,leaving us wondering.
We had the answer the moment we saw the last part of the staircase that led to the 3rd floor where Room 10 is the one and only room.
I´m still wondering if it is approved to lend a room with that access.
If you are a big person, forget it.You won´t be able to take the turn.
And don´t even think of taking any piece of luggage there.It´s impossible.
We picked from our car what we would need for the night and left the rest in the car.
So forget to leave the car in the street too.
The room: big room with 4 single beds,2 desks and tiled floors.
As it was really cold and rainy, it was nice to find they switched on the heating, as the room was really huge for 2 people.
I would have asked for a change of room if we were staying fo more than a night.
The breakfast was excellent and full of choices.
In 15 minutes walking you can get to the old town across the river.
So, it´s not a bad choice, even with no very friendly staff, but beware of room 10 !
