          Home Saint jean is a basic but decent hotel in Minute. You can easily arrange a boat trip in hotel as well in the area around [which is cheaper]. Basic food is served and bad remains open in evening. Excellent price/quality!

          We really liked the hotel view. We took a boat ride which was fantastic but the only hiccup our room which was 67 was next to urinals the toilet smelled all night and the smell came inside the room as well very uncomfortable.

          How can we contact the hotel? I have read that the beds are very narrow. We're 2 guys and don't mind sharing a bed, but....Do they have twin beds? Thanks for your help.

          I think it is possible. It will just require you to inform the manager of course to get a permission.

          I cannot find a working phone number for Home St. Jean. The number in the previous question did not work for me and both numbers in the Brandt guide do not work and neither did the email in the brandt guide. Does anyone have a contact method for Home St. Jean? Thanks!
