12 February 2011

Liked: The ONLY two good things about this hotel is 1. the free wifi and 2. the two-three minute walk to the subway

Disliked: The hotel is dated, not well maintained, DIRTY AND OVERPRICED!!! The carpet, bed, and bedding are very worn out and the shower had several black spots, which I’m guessing is mold. Towels are provided but no toiletries, not even a small bar of hand soap (at least they provide toilet paper, which we felt we had to ration the last night of our stay!!). The mandatory breakfast is ridiculous and not worth the money; 3 euro per person per night and all you get is a basket of bread (2 pieces per person) consisting of croissants and baguettes and your choice of hot chocolate, tea, or cappuccino (no refills; someone stated in their review that it’s unlimited, it’s not! All you get is half a cup and don’t expect to get more). Breakfast should be optional, not mandatory! Our room was next to the struggling elevator that you hear at ALL hours of the day and night. Another review stated the TVs were flat screen, well not our room; it had a very old tube TV with no cable so unless you are fluent in French, all you have is local channels. You are in Paris so who watches TV, right? I personally like to catch up on the news and weather, but then again, that’s where the free wifi came in handy! The hotel is NOISY, the walls are paper thin because you can hear everything that is going on outside your door and the window as well. There was a large group of young kids who had no respect or consideration for other guests, you could hear them laughing and talking into the wee hours of the morning. The day staff is not fluent in English. Needless to say, I couldn’t wait to leave that dump!! DO NOT RECOMMEND!!!!!!!!

Liked: the wifi was excellent and the location very close the metro train station.

Disliked: the 5 stretcher beds that were positioned next to each other in our small room. the mandatory breakfast was not necessary and not worth the money paid for it.

Liked: Close to the metro lines, recently there have been new televisions that have been installed in all the rooms

Disliked: The front door was not secure, the cleaner enters the room regardless of whether you wish to have the room cleaned or not, there was limited communication from the staff and they had very poor knowledge about tourist related questions and no motivation to answer such questions.

Liked: Location

Disliked: Very unfriendly staff. Calling while helping us. When we arrived the man at the desk said that we had to take the breakfast, and pay for it additonally, while that was not said on the website. The heating did not work in the room, and the shower was hot for 5 minutes while we had a room for 4 persons.

Liked: It was a clean place, the beds were done everyday and the bathroom was cleaned by a maid. It was very near to a Metropolitan Station.

Disliked: There was only one key to get into the shared rooms, so if you arrived late in the night you will have to wake up those who are already sleeping to open the door for you. Furthermore, there were no lockers iin the shared rooms.
