Ideal for city break to this beautiful city. Unimposing from the outside and a strange name for a typically French turn of the century hotel. The interior is very welcoming and the room was spotlessly clean and comfortable, although there was no air conditioning so I would imagine it would be very hot during the summer. The continental breakfast is...

I really believed I'd booked for the Friday night. I rocked up there to find I'd booked the Saturday night: my wedding night. The receipt confirmed my mistake. As the manager saw the horror on my face he decided to let me sleep in his private room. What a hero.... Therefore I can only give high recommendations for this place.
