0.16km from Auberge du MarcassinDurbuy(pronounced Durbwee) is a beautiful town steeped in history and positioned geographically within the Wallonia region of Belgium. This place was unsurprisingly untouched during the Nazi advance through the Ardennes in the second world war. It would have been too nice to spoil I imagine. The small city with its cobbled streets is a great place to visit no doubt. The buildings, eateries and drinking establishments are plentiful and the choice of Belgian beers are endless. There aren't many places to stay within this small city (more like a small town really)but there are a few like the Hotel Le Vieux but beware! The hotel, as a building is fine, it looks great from the outside and has character. The problem, which is surprising is it is too hot inside the rooms. There is no air con or fans and has ventilation only through an open double glazed window which is ineffective. The noise from the street is echoed by the closeness of the streets and alleyways, so opening the windows for air leaves you in a catch 22 situation. You either get suffocated or put up with the relentless sound of the many people traversing the streets, day and night. An old creaking staircase to the rooms doesn't help anybody staying there either. The building is also annexed away from the check-in reception at its sister hotel,50 meters or so down the street. The hotel annex is unmanned for some reason. Breakfast is optional at 15 Euros per head. Buffet style food is served openly on side tables within the dining area. The problem is the flies. I have never seen so many flies around food in all my traveling years especially in a hotel such as this. It made me sick to my stomach. The breakfast is mainly continental and there were baguettes stacked up, fruit loafs uncovered, small patisseries and fruit open to this unwelcome plethora of germ-ridden insects. What made it worse were the toilets situated next to the dining room. I saw one lady dipping a cake thing into her tea. She probably ate the fly eggs within it too. Disgusting!! 'Get a fly killer', no expense spared, please. Toilet area, open plated food and flies do go together..for the flies, yes but come on get a grip!!. I suppose the proprietor will be mesmerized by these comments but I want to make sure they really know about healthy, hygienic conditions. It can't be ignored and please don't blame the wooded areas and river nearby. Get a damn Diaminox, it is quick and easy and for those bog fly lovers they won't know what hit them, so don't worry. Durbuy is definitely worth a visit but be wary of this hotel and its ignorance of food standards. Oh! and the wifi is diabolical,sorry.
