    The room smelled like urine. The bed crippled my back and the AC didn’t cool the room well. Great location. Friendly staff.

    La posizione in primis, poi il rapporto qualità/prezzo. Il personale è stato gentile e cortese, la loro disponibilità e professionalità è davvero encomiabile.

  • 4,0.Fair

    Aucune possibilité d'appeler l'hôtel avant notre arrivée pour nous renseigner sur les conditions de stationnement, normal lors du check in, la receptioniste n'arrêtait pas de raccrocher à chaque apel entrant... Notre chambre, même si nous avons réservé une standard était loins des critères que nous attendions d'un Mercure: odeurs noséabonde en entrant, salle de bain réservée PMR avec lunette des wc cassée, couette qui couvre à peine les 2 personnes, literie passable... À notre demande d'avoir une vraie douche (histoire de pouvoir profiter d'un peu de détente après notre journée de visite) nous nous sommes fait remballé sans ménagement. A choisi pour son emplacement et peut être pour les chambres plus standing.

    Très bel hôtel, super emplacement

    Très bel hôtel en plein centre historique, très calme et sur. J’ai pris une suite mais attention les photos ne sont pas réelles, elles représentent la suite King mais en réalité vous recevez une autre bien plus petite et moins confortable. La première chambre ne me convenait pas du tout, heureusement j’ai pû changer grâce à la personne très gentille à l’accueil et avoir une autre suite avec sauna privé, très belle malgré quelques soucis d’entretien (télécommande TV qui ne fonctionne pas et Clim qui fuit) qui ne sont pas un problème. Dans l’ensemble le séjour était très plaisant et le rapport qualité/prix est optimal, je recommande!!

    Il soggiorno è iniziato bene ancor prima del mio arrivo, infatti avevo richiesto una camera al piano alto e sono stata accontentata. Hotel centralissimo con vista sul castello. Camera pulita e silenziosa. Personale professionale e gentile. Colazione molto buona. Tutto perfetto, ci ritornerò sicuramente.

    Ottimo rapporto qualità prezzo. Personalmente non apprezzo la doccia a vista. Andrebbe migliorata la comunicazione delle variazioni rispetto a quanto descritto( la non presenza di bollitore e pantofole, il diverso numero per le chiamate in reception, ). Il personale è davvero professionale e gentile. Ottimo il livello di pulizia.
