This is a Trusted Review. Why?
The price is not really justified, it is equivalent to a B&B but the service is not absolutely comparable (breakfast not included).
The environment of the establishment is durty and is not welcoming.
The manager is absent. The welcome was in the hands of 2 youngmen likeables but without experience (only arrived from a few days).
The phone rang during a long time in the evening because no people was present to answer.
In the morning, nobody is present for departure and cashing of customs.
We have observed during our presence 2 brekdowns of electricity, one of them, early in the morning, at the time of departures, delaying the guests. No responsable was present.
Rooms are not confortable : only one central light with a single switch, no bedsise lamp.
The bathroom was hardly clean : the pedal bin was not empty when we have had our room.
There was not accessories : hair drier, soaps, shampoos.
The rooms have none decoration.
The common kitchen was not cleaned every day.
This establishment don't must be recommanded.
We have staid 4, 5 and 6 of june 2011.
