Price from: €29

Open: All year

Make no mistake: this is an budget option. I paid €39 for a room, though this can be as cheap as €29 depending on the night of the week and the season. And you get what you pay for: a bed, a bedside table, a clean but dated shower / toilet room. But, quite frankly, that was all I needed. I'd just ridden the Le Mans 24-hour Sportive and this was perfect. All I wanted to do was sleep and this fitted the bill perfectly. The lady on reception didn't look twice when, smelling and not having slept or showered in almost 36 hours, I wheeled my bike into reception. Fully laden with panniers and a tent that I was consciously refusing to use again that night, the bike fitted nicely in the elevator and I took it up to my room and parked it against the wall. I then collapsed for 12 hours of slumber in my super basic 6th floor room. For €39, it was something akin to heaven. Breakfast not included.
