Visiting Mont-Saint-Michel, decided to stay in Avranches and picked Altos based on internet pictures and information.
On arrival, 13h00, hotel was closed. A sign said we should call a number, which we did. It said service only started at 15h00. Weird... Why is an hotel closed at 13h00 on a Saturday? Lack of customers or absence of service?
Concerned, we came back at 15h00. Inside, things did not look as we expected and we decided not to stay. We asked for a cancellation which was not accepted. Nevertheless, we decided we would rather lose the money than stay there. A curiosity: nobody asked us why we wanted to cancel. Almost as if it was usual behaviour.
Strong suggestion: if you choose to stay at Altos, pick a rate that allows for cancellation; Then you will be able to leave if you find things do not look good.
In the end, we stayed in Rennes, Novotel Gare. Cheaper... and clean.
While waiting for Altos to open we had lunch at Hotel Patton. I recommend it - nice, friendly and good food.More
