My wife and I are on a month long road trip across Southern Europe and we stopped in Cassis at the behest of a close friend. This was easily the most expensive room we booked on the entire trip. We expected a room that was commensurate with the 160 euro price tag ($212 US) and frankly I've had better experiences at $80/night highway hotels in the states. It was a hot day at 85 degrees Fahrenheit (30 degrees Celsius) so it was hot in our room when we arrived. Upon entering the room I realized that the AC seemed to not be working. When I inquired about the issue with the manager she said that the AC had not been turned on yet due to unusually cold weather. This was not what irked me. What irked me was the she didn't offer us a fan or a room on the lower floors of the hotel where it may have been cooler. She instead told us to sleep with the patio door open. The result was no sleep in a hot, bug infested room. We decided to get out of bed at 6am and leave as soon as possible. This was a horrible experience in a room that doesn't even begin to touch the luxury status the hotel advertises. I don't like to write negative reviews and I'm not hard to please but this was an unfortunate stay to be sure.
