8/10 Very good

Awesome except for weak AC.
Nice rooms. Kitchenette. Nice building. Sauna is awesome after 30 min of heating up - need to pull the door tight. A bike. A treadmill. Some hand weights. Only complaint I have is the rooms don’t get cold enough - even when they come to change out the filter (which seems like a common remedy they apply - my friend also had his filter swapped out). Building needs more AC to match other nice hotels.

8/10 Very good

Great location, wonderful service, bad bed.
Great staff and very helpful. Right in the center of the Gothic Quarter, so the location is excellent. Gym is small but adequate, and the sauna was great to use (just requires a few hours notice to reserve). The shower was excellent as well. Worst part was the bed - it was very low, on a platform and really had not much support at all. The pillows were also either very long (body-pillow length) or very short and there was just a comforter, which made the temperature adjustment extreme. Feels like the least amount of thought went into the beds, which is unfortunate because not getting comfortable sleep is a big minus when traveling. Also scheduling room cleaning was harder than we thought it would be - we stayed for 4 nights and said when we checked in that we'd want cleaning on the morning after night two. When that day came, they said we hadn't told them and weren't sure they could get the room cleaned. They ultimately got it cleaned, but that was an unnecessary hassle.
