Hotel hasn't been updated in at least 20 years. Rooms are tiny, bathrooms from the 1960's, air conditioner made a noise like a WW I tank. Restaurant reflects the overall decline of French cuisine: what seemed pretty good 20 years ago is today unimaginative and mediocre. Wines are good, but overpriced. When is France going to realise that things have moved on? I suspect there is little much better than this, except if you move to a 4- or 5-star ranking. The old saying "En aout, eviter la Cote d'Azur" is correct: too crowded, traffic impossible, overpriced. On the other hand, there is one Cote d'Azur and you have to accept it for what it is.
Location was excellent. Near the now New Vieux Port, parking in subterranean garage across the street. Staff were generally friendly. Restaurant was good for the region and the time of year.
