Avoid the noisy hotel rooms on the 1st floor
Room on the first floor was above the kitchens or store area which was very noisy from trolleys and moving goods etc. Also the window looked out over a building site that started working at 6.30am, I arrived at the hotel at midnight so had little chance to sleep.

Bien mais pas excellent
Le personnel est agréable , les parties communes sont propres. Par contre la salle de bain de notre chambre n’était pas super propre. Énormément de moustiques la nuit (nous en avons tué 4 avant de pouvoir dormir à 4h du matin). L’insonorisation n’est pas non plus optimale , nous avons été réveillés par nos voisins de chambre le matin. Néanmoins l’hôtel est très bien situé.
