An admin error left me without a hotel for one night during a frequently occuring business trip to Paris. Wanting to stay in roughly the same area as I typically do I found this hotel for a decent rate (for Paris that is) and decided to give it a go for one night.
The hotel is quite quirky and is very much in the traditional Paris style. Unfortunately that tends to mean small, from the elevator which barely has room for one person plus luggage to the room itself which was small and anciently decorated (wallpaper peeling off the walls, chipped and damaged skirting boards, filthy/stained/worn carpet).
The bathroom was absolutely tiny and required some skill to get in, close the door and be able to negotiate the shower screen (which does not move) to actually get into the shower. I would not have contemplated using the bath due to the stains and marks all over it.
All in all whilst convenient for short notice availability this hotel is fine, but to stay for more than one night would be just too depressing. There are other hotels in the same area which for a slightly higher price offer far better quality, and therefore I will not be returning.
