Bienville House
Horrendous so called 'boutique hotel'.
Tired hotel with general areas scuffed. Lift door taped together with duct tape. Filthy smelly room which was a mixture of mould and filthy carpet. Room not serviced on 2nd day but bedding flicked back over bed. No replenishment of coffee or milk (milk out of sell by date which left huge globules in bottom of cup). Complained at reception when got back in evening room had been serviced but no coffee or milk left. Asked at reception and was told hotel was closing the next week for full re-fit and they were running out of everything! Complained when leaving and was told I had only booked a 'standard' room, does this mean you get sub-standard service. We stayed in 13 hotels in standard room throughout our trip and these were all fine. I would have refused to pay for the room but obviously my card had been lodged. The final few days of our amazing trip was spoilt because of this disgusting hotel. There were also cockroaches in the general toilet wastepaper basket. This was next to the kitchen. We therefore left the meal we were having at the time.

Very Good8.0
Overall, it was pretty great. Our only complaints is that the heat/AC was being serviced, and th room was stuffy. A staff member brought a box fan to our room, however, which helped a lot... I also wish that the valet service was specified as not included with the room booking price. All is well and was wonderful overall.

Beinville was a perfect hotel for our stay! Close to everything. Service was exceptional! Front desk was always so helpful and attentive. Cynthia who works in the front desk was always so attentive with us and helpful! She really made our stay that much more positive. Enjoy every moment and will definitely come back to this hotel!
