The Staff is super awesome. The location is fantastic. The parking was easy and secure. The room we had was a lot smaller then we anticipated. We have been to small rooms and bathrooms in France but this was really really small. The bathroom was the size of a plane bathroom. We are not big people but it was difficult to comfortably use the bathroom. But if you like to be in center and easy walking to everywhere and do not mind the small room and bathroom, it is a very good choice.
