We stayed here on our way down to the south of France. It was late at night, the Etap next door was full and the Campanile was €87 but as we were only planning a short stay there( just a few hours from late at night to first thing in the morning) this seemed too steep a price.
So we chose the Hotel Balladins as it seemed to have vacancies.
First, the hotel isn't manned at night.
There is a machine by the front door which you use to check in. I asked for a double room, but when we got to it, it was a twin room. It cost €60 and was awful. The room was miniscule which was not ideal to fit our baby's travel cot in. The bedding was the kind of bedding you don't feel want to look at too closely. The bathroom was ridiculously small and the shower terrible, small and sticky.
Thankfully we only stayed there from about 3am til 8/9 am.
Upon check out, the receptionist did not even ask us how the room was. He probably didn't want to hear what we had to stay.
My advice? Pay the extra to stay next door at the Campanile or the Etap if it's available.
I suppose the only redeeming feature was that it was next door to McDonalds so we had an easy breakfast the next morning.
