Stayed in the hotel for a whole week ( sun/sun ) lovely location,friendly staff, nice breakfast. Friday night is very lively outside around the hotel but it is a city and down in the city centre it was a lot louder. Second time we have stopped here and would recommend it for its position and friendly helpful staff.

Great hotel! The staff was WONDERFUL and very helpful. Perfect location. Great bar and happy hour specials. The bathroom in our room was updated but room (carpet, etc.) felt a little dated/old - room and bathroom were a little on the small side. Overall though, very charming and great for our 5 day stay.

It takes 2 minutes to walk along to Avenue Jean Medecin and all its shops, and a further five minutes down to Place Massena and the edge of the old town at Cours Selaya.

I stayed at this hotel for about four days. I could not ask for a better location. It was close enough to easily walk to the main road and beach, yet just far enough to not have the noise. The staff were exceptionally helpful in every way.
