We arrived at this hotel on Xmas Eve and were very much welcomed. We checked in and we asked what drink we wanted from the fridge behind the reception! We were given a good sized room on the 5th floor with a good view. The bed was big & very comfy plus we had a single bed too. The bathroom... More

Very small room, but freshly painted and clean with everything you could want (including tea making stuff...a bonus!) and a lovely comfy bed.

We stayed one night at this hotel after arriving from Paris on the train. We chose it because it was close to the train station and we wanted to be able to walk. It was a charming gem.

Me and my partner recently stayed here as part of a trip to the Riveria. The hotel is very easy to find, just down the road from the railway station. Its location is OK, 10-15 min walk to the beach and old town but it is also close to the tram line to save the legs! The room was very... More

Our basic needs were easily met at this hotel. The rooms were clean and the staff friendly and helpful. The stay included services that more expensive hotels charge for - beverage on arrival, breakfast, packed lunch (nothing special but serves its purpose), and internet access.
