I have stayed at this hotel a couple of years ago when it was an Etap. Then the room was at the front near with a slightly noisy road. But the room was clean, not enough to deter a second booking. The room we were allotted was, to my initial relief, at the back of the hotel. However, this relief was soon tempered by the state of the room. The room was a twin with two single beds. The bathroom: fittings loose - cracked toilet - rubber flooring blackened with shower water - shower hose holder did not move, so spray was directed horizontal from the fitting - small square window propped open with toilet roll, which became soaked when shower was turned on - water from shower went straight out of window with the direction problem! With hearts rapidly sinking, i decided to open the window to see the view. The plastic blind was all torn at the edges. Oh dear! Then the view. A massive tree was growing about 3 feet away and went about 15 feet above our 3rd floor. It felt very claustrophobic. On some ground through the tree was a pile of empty bottles,cans etc. There was no natural light, very gloomy. I went down to the reception to try to change the room, but was basically told all rooms are the same. Same outlook, same condition. I know this is a budget hotel and we should not expect the earth, or indeed a view of The Hanging Gardens of Babylon, but we expected the basics. A clean well maintained room with a view of some natural light. This we most definitely did not receive. We were very disappointed and basically could not wait to leave. By the way, the Ibis Budget Rouen centre Rive Gauche which we stayed in after this one was an absolute delight. Bathroom perfect, room clean, bright room, really helpful and cheerful staff. Restored our spirits!
