Let's do nothing and get paid

The keyword for this hotel is CHEAPThe room was small, old and musty. Bad lighting, no phone and really nice for 1980. I could hear all that was going on in any room adjacent.The very worst though was the staff. On arrival there was no help with getting our luggage out of the car (and since there is place to really stop around there, this is a big deal), they just pointed us to a "nearby" public garage. So we ended up walking 4 blocks with all our bags.When we wanted to buy a drink from their vending machine, we were told "!!NO CHANGE!!" even before asking (needless to say there were no mini-bars in the 1980 rooms).And to top it of, we were charged "city tax" on leaving (every other [...] reservation seems to include that, but not this grand hotel). 3.60Euro per room. I wasn't going to argue for an amount like that but annoyed since this is clearly a scam to make some more money. And to add injury to insult, they could not give me any change. Did they give me 0.40 cents extra back? No of course not, I had to eat the difference "we owe you" the great staff was telling me.Note that the above complaints about the staff are three different people, not a single incident.This hotel is in a good location but so are many other hotels, I would avoid this like the plague.

"La maison de Marie" was highly rated and indeed a great place to eat. Great food, great wine, very friendly waiting staff and nice setting (garden-like).
