    Excellent location of the hotel. Very good treatment of the personnel and disposition to offer a good experience.

    room we had was spectacularly big, bathroom was spectacularly small, you could hardly get in, tiny! Unbelievable that they make such comfortable rooms with such small bathrooms...

    Beautiful hotel and very friendly reception staff

    The valet parking attendant who didn't even offer us help with our suitcases when we left, whereas on arrival everything was perfect! In addition we had to wait 5 minutes next to our car before they would give us the keys of our car and that really left us a bad image of the hotel by leaving very badly!

    Very nice hotel, well located. Very professional and friendly staff. Clean, spacious and quiet room.

    Just a hindrance to parking, but that's it.

    The bathroom compared to the room was tiny.

    Very good

    The spa, the Starbucks on site, the very central and ideal location for visiting or shopping, the decoration, the fact of having a fridge, the gym, the luggage room.

    For a 4-star hotel, the bathroom could have been more modern and better maintained. The room is not very big for the price.

    Very good

    The magnifying mirror for the make-up The size of the room The bottle of wine offered on our arrival was appreciated

    The cleaning lady did not spend the day after our arrival, which is unacceptable for a 4-star hotel However, we were away from 10:30 am to 3:30 pm and from 6 pm to 8 pm There was no tissue either The shower did not drain well The water accumulated considerably The air conditioning was really too noisy
