눉We had never stayed at a Fast hotel before so didn't know exactly what to expect but, over the last 15 years, we have stayed at many other budget hotels in France and so are quite experienced travelers.
The first room we were given we spent all of 10 seconds in. The strong smell of smoke combined with a very strong smell of vanilla (presumably an air freshener) made us feel physically sick. Holding back the rising vomit I went to reception and asked for another room which we were given after much discussion between the proprietors (the hotel was almost empty!!!).
This, on first entering, smelled much better and we settled on this. However, after returning from our pizza, we realised that this room too must have had a lot of smokers staying in it and we had to sleep with the window open all night.
Awoke rather cold and our clothes smelled of smoke, but at least we did get some sleep.
We had another Fast hotel booked for our journey and were then in much trepidation as to what to expect at that hotel, but I can say that it was 1,000% better.
눇Breakfast - help yourself buffet, but not much choice.
Pizza shack around the corner, 2 minutes walk, does very good pizzas on demand.
