we had an excellent stay in Hotel Asterisk! first of all, this hotel accepts a "standard" booking, sending a detailed mail to the hotel with your complete coordinates, this makes you liaise directly with the hotel, which is more "human" than booking websites. We paid 110€/night (from 30 may to 3rd june) for the small double room, a good price...

The location is perfect. The room was quite small, and a little old, but clean. The people at the front desk where extremely helpful and really nice. The wi fi was quite good and free You can leave your luggage for some hours without extra charge. Would go back!

Stayed here on a business trip booked by a travel agency. Room was described as a "small twin" in the booking confirmation. I read some review on here regarding small rooms / outside or even shared bathrooms, but should not have worried. The room I got on the top floor at the back was excellent - nice and big, recently...
