The hotel is a fairly old town house, integrated into a row of others and from the outside not very spectacular. It is a quarter, where most people would live in flats, so parking space is limited. Hotel Azur reserves some space in front of the hotel for loading and unloading the luggage. A nice entrance hall leads to a reception, where I was received in a very kind and helpful manner. It all seems a little old fashioned, also that nobody insisted on pre-payment, nowadays only in luxury hotels the case. Due to bad experience with today's society fewer and fewe} houses afford trusting in their guests being respectable people. Once you go up the stately staircase you realise that it follows the walls leaving a considerable space inside empty, allowing you to look down to the ground floor, an incredible anachronistic experience in a time, where space in cities gets increasingly valuable. And indeed Hotel Azur is located quite centrally with only 15 minutes by foot to the yacht harbour (and if you are lazy, there is a tram 200m from the hotel). I chose a small single, which was cheap, but, of course did not follow the grandeur of the staircase, but was nice apart from the toilet being directly in the room. However the night showed the only disadvantage, the thin walls, in fact the very thin walls. After hearing the neighbor so clearly moving in his bed, I had the impression to share a double with him, I did not dare to switch on the lights, in case they shone through the wall waking him up. Following his sleep he did not have any problem with the noise I made, so this depends really on your sleep. Next mornings breakfast suits the old fashioned environment: rather than being expected to run around with your plate and organise your breakfast yourself your first meal of the day will be served, if you wish, in a wonderful multi level back yard, giving you a colonial feel or at least what you would have expected from typical Southern French Retreat.
