Not a hotel for Americans traveling on their own!
I would rate this hotel -5 if I could! This hotel is hard to find, Identified with the wrong number. behind locked gates with no combination provided in advance, has no parking available for check-in (street parking is almost nonexistent) and is minimally identified as Residence Laudine and not Hotel Laudine! Our GPS correctly led us to the location but we had to try it twice to believe it was close. We had to park in an illegal parking place to get out and scout the place on foot. We walked to both the back and the front of the buildings and then inquired of a passerby (who only spoke French). He pointed to a building which under closer inspection contained in a rather obtuse location the title "Residence Laudine". Walking some more led us to a locked gate with the address 8 (not7). We were able to wave down a lady in the lobby who was apparently a resident, who let us in but provided no other information (she also spoke only French). After examining the lobby for a few minutes (we believe we were there until the 5:30 check-in time) we decided to leave and try to find another place to stay. At approximately 7:00 PM we received an e-mail (in French) asking (we think) if we would be there before 8:00 PM and providing the gate code. It is our conclusion that this is an apartment residence doing hotel business on the side using extra rooms. They are definitely not run like a good hotel! Americans should avoid this hotel if at all possible!
