      Very good location. But breakfast was below average due to limited selection. The most disappointing thing was the lack of electric tea pot. I have never been in a hotel without electric tea pot until now. To be fair, this information was provided when I made reservation. I would have changed my mind about making the reservation if I had read it.

      Un hôtel en dessous du standing 4 étoiles”

      Nous avons été déçus par cet hôtel : literie trop dure, bruit de la salle des machines en permanence depuis notre chambre, une ampoule de la chambre était allumée et surchauffait, son interrupteur cassé et personne n’a su réparer le probleme, le buffet du petit déjeuner est débarrassé à 10:30 alors que la salle est pleine, son emplacement n’est pas central, tout est payant en supplément : hammam-sauna, parking... nous n’y retournerons pas
