    The wifi is up and down from my room.The parfume or room refreshers in the hotel was not my taste. The location is between train station and city centre. Cheapest private room i found in the downtown.

  • 4.0.Fair

    My stay: 12th - 15th March 2020

    The hotel itself was clean and tidy, the staff were professional and the room was comfortable but the bed mattress was very compressing and hurt my back really badly. The blue neon lit sign: HOTEL was right outside my window and kept me awake at night even with the curtains closed. Also, the lift malfunctioned quite often and wouldn’t stop at my floor when I called it and sometimes the doors would not open when it reached the ground floor or my floor (2nd floor).

    Comfortable, retro hotel

    It's a comfortable hotel. I only spent couple of days there and it was clean with a good internet, but also very retro furnitures. A bit like time travelling to the '70s

    Verified Wotif guest review

  • 6.0.Good

    This hotel is old and dated. Amenities were SEVERELY lacking and room heaters did not work. No one answered the phone at the front desk when we tried to call down multiple times. Staff left sheets/towels/etc on floors outside rooms when going for lunch breaks which did not look good at all. Overall, this hotel is a poor choice and I would not stay here again.

    Location is great in the heart of Guillotiere. Room is really well equipped for the price you pay. Staff are great and check in / out couldn't be easier, as well as key drop offs when leaving. Really great if you're staying on a budget

  • 8.0.Very Good

    Nice central location. Budget friendly tourist ** hotel. Nice breakfast. Staff friendly. Good free wifi connection. Walls are thin; you can hear your neighbors and vice versa. Glad I stayed in November as this hotel doesnt have air conditioning. I heard it is not comfortable during hot months. However, I would recommend during colder months because its price and location.
