The hotel has good days past it. The inferior is a bit old-fashioned and worn-out. The bathroom was terrible - the shower was very dirty, it was small and the door would not close (it was sliding door and the mechanism was not working). The bed was ok. The neighbourhood is loud and there is Arab district in the nearby....

This hotel was an easy walk from the train station and about 20min from the port- great location. The hotel is old. But if you don't need luxury, it's perfect. The staff were helpful, the room was comfortable (could do with a better vacuum), the bathroom was clean. Good wifi and aircon. If you just need a simple base with...

I slept one night at this hotel, big regret ever, felt unsafe, someone tried to get inside of my room, the room was awful, bad smell, old, the bathroom words cannot describe, really really bad. Staff not friendly at all, I heard noises at the hallways all night long. I had one of the worst experiences ever at this place.

I spent only one night in this hotel with my boyfriend and it was ok. But I dont think I would have stayed any longer. It is clean, but looks so old. However, the staff was really friendly and we could use the parking even after the checkout.

I'm happy I stayed there only for a night as the room was very small. Clean but old. Same with the bathroom and there weren't any towels in the room. Breakfast was fine. The stuff in the front desk and restaurant very nice and helpful. They also have a big closed parking for the guests although you have to pay...

I stayed here for 2 nights in the middle of July. The rooms were average sized and fairly clean, they were not amazing but a decent place at a good price. The hotel staff were all very friendly, helpful and chatty! The location was decent, about 15 mintes from the train station and the old town, but a 5 minutes...

The hotel is clean, welcoming, staff very helpful, rich breakfast . Value for Money. Depends on the neighbors, the walls are thin...:). Around are shops where you can buy and eat, it's a supermarket, too. In the old port is a mall with a lot of terraces. The room had AC.

The hotel is situated fairly close to the city centre. The interiors of the rooms are good. Staff is helpful. However, it's still a bit of a climb to return to the hotel from the metro/ bus. Prices can be a little lower too. Don't worry about safety too.

Me and my sister stayed here for one night on a cycle tour from Calais to Marseille. After booking, I read some reviews and was worried by some of them that indicated that the area was not safe. Rubbish! The Hotel is less than 15 minute's stroll, from the old port, along (2) wide and well lit roads. Returning home,...
