Found this in a small town in the Pyrenees called Eaux Chaudes. Kurt Tucholsky, who traveled the Pyrenees in 1912, already described the place as decrepit Smile
And no, I don't think it actually was a hotel Wink
A big thank you to Dougie, Kurt Skeels, Joline, Brian and Helen for their much appreciated user awards on "Light & Stairs", and especially to Keithh for his GEA.

It would have to be pretty cheep to attract customers. Looks like the town was a spa with a good amount of customers.

This looks like it may actually be used from time to time. Those mattresses look relatively new. Probably a better bed for someone homeless than a ditch.

Well found, Rende. The lighting would suggest these were the only two walls as well! GrinGrin

Eaux Chaudes... Well we talk about finding ourselves in hot water. Not the bath suds here, I suspect.

Possibly as good as some budget hotels in the UK. I like the combination od pink and green on the walls here Rende.
