A fuir en famille
Accueil sympathique, mais les chambres ne sont pas du tout isolées: les autres "pensionnaires" qui arrivent à 2h du matin réveillent immanquablement toute les chambres ! De plus, située à côté de lacuisine et d'un couloir où les gens vont fumer, c'est bruit et odeur de cigarettes... En famille: à fuir.
