The room itself was pretty barren, lacking such amenities as a clock, a lamp, a dresser, a comfortable chair, even a box of tissues. The bathroom seems to have been recently refurbished, which was nice, though I would not have thought it possible to make towels that thin. And the air con did not seem to work, or at least could not be set from the room. Although the room was reasonably clean, the fittings were well-worn and stained.
The view of the Vieux Port from my fourth-floor window is a candidate for best-hotel-room-view-ever. Absolutely splendid, from soft early morning light to glittery water reflections at night. I highly recommend paying extra for the port-facing rooms -- and request a high floor, too. The desk staff also were consistently friendly and helpful.
