I booked a room at this hotel despite reading many of the reviews so I knew what to expect. But at the same time I have stayed at so many formulaic hotels I was attracted to what would have been the traditional French experience of the a more no-nonsense past. And I wasn’t disappointed.
Yes the toilets are shared and yes you have to run the tap for a couple of minutes before the hot water starts to run, but this establishment has bags of character and the above flaws were minor indignities.
I also ate at the bar & restaurant below and had a perfectly acceptable meal with nice wine accompanied by delightful service.
There at nine rooms in total spread over two floors accessed via steep narrow stairs and there’s no lift.
The views of the mountain are breathtaking and situated as it is on the Route Napoleon its a very very convenient place to take break your journey.
So with all the above caveats I have given this establishment a high score because if you want something other than the traditional formulaic hotel this is a great choice along the Route de Napoleon.More
