You know the kind of hotel that you go to and you are not really sure if you feel comfortable taking your shoes off and walking around in your room barefoot or even touching the bed spread? This is that kind of hotel. It was not "dirty" per se, just really outdated. My husband and I are seasoned travelers and use to the tiny size of hotel rooms in cities like Paris, but this one felt smaller than a room on a cruise ship. I can see this hotel being okay for a young college student wanting to stay in a hip area (it's better than a hostel), but I would not recommend it to anyone else. We stayed at a nearby 2 star hotel that was 20 Euros less per night and much nicer, updated, and more spacious. That other hotel was sold out of rooms during out last stay so we booked at Hotel De Saint Germain instead. We ended up checking out early and moving to a hotel where we paid twice as much, but it was worth it! Oh, and that warning on the website about being above the metro station... they mean it! Being from NYC, I am no stranger to street noise or trains, but this sounded more like an airplane taking off every 2 minutes. And the worst part was the bed... or table? There was no cushioning at all... I might as well have been sleeping on floor.
