We arrived late at night with our touringbikes and got a great first impression from the staff. Very helpfull and they helped us to store our bikes. A fantastic room that was very clean. The location is just perfect.

I can't really say anything good about this hotel, we had a bad first impression and it didn't get any better from there. When we first located the hotel there didn't seem to be anywhere to safely stop in front, and so two of us jumped out of the vehicle a few blocks down. We went in to ask if...

Any problems with this hotel are not down to the staff but to the Management, who's ideas on grading this hotel are unrealistic. It is admitted that photos and descriptions of rooms do not always reflect reality. I was shown to my room on the 4th floor, which was a very small double, with plain walls and what had been...

We stayed here for 2 nts. We arrived early morning but were able to leave our bags at the hotel and come back in the afternoon to check in. Rooms were very clean and spacious enough for France. Bathroom was quite compact & the built-in hairdryer did not work. Reception gave us a replacement dryer but it was less than...

Not really a 4 star hotel , more a 3 star . I stayed on a bed and breakfast basis . For what I paid it really suited me especially the location , right on the port close to everything . Breakfast was basic . If you want something a bit more fancy then this is not for you ....

Locationwise it does not get better. Right in the center of the Vieux Port. Perfect for exploring the city. The hotel is clean, comfortable and the staff is extremely friendly. Rooms are small but enough and bathroom is just right. Reasonably priced and convenient.

My view of the Old Port was fantastic! I was on a higher floor so the room was quiet even though it was noisy on the street. I chose to stay at a hotel on the Vieux Port to make sure I was in a safe place. The staff was very helpful except one guy who told me that they...

Perfectly positioned hotel, directly overlooking the Vieux Port. Clean, large rooms, reasonably priced and helpful, friendly staff. I booked a quadruple family room for my wife and two teenage daughters. We got a large, air conditioned room with two double beds and a huge bathroom. I couldn't fault it.

There was only a twin room available, overlooking the side street (not the port). It was a regular size, the bathroom was somewhat bigger than the other ones we had in France. It is more a good 3 stars hotel than a 4 stars hotel... But not very expensive (around 89 euros on a regular night for sidestreet view). Clean,...
