I normally don't take reviews on Tripadvisor too seriously, finding most of them to be quite petty. So I decided to book into Premiere Montreuil despite the bad reviews. When I first arrived I was pleasantly surprised, the room was nice, simple and clean. It was a decent size room, a good size bathroom, secure parking for our car, a vending machine in the lobby and a pamphlet on our bed explaining how to log on to the wifi. It was within walking distance to a train station as well so we didn't need to drive into the city. I was happy, for an hour or so.
The negatives heavily outweighed the positives. Firstly, the open plan bathroom had very poor drainage, so the entire bathroom flooded whenever we took a shower. I had to turn the shower off after a few minutes as I was worried it would flood into the room. The walls are paper thin, so you can hear other guests coming and going early in the morning and late at night. We could also hear water rushing through the pipes every time someone in the floor above us flushed, it was really loud. The worst of it all was that the cleaning staff COMPLETELY disregard the do not disturb sign. They barely even knock as they walk into your room in the morning, if you're still asleep and tell them you don't want any room service, they will walk away, then come back in 30 minutes later. They then came into our room while we were out during the day, made the bed, took our towels and didn't replace them, and put our do not disturb sign inside our room. We put it straight back up when we returned that evening, only to have them walk in without knocking again early the next morning while we were still asleep. When we went out for the day, the made the bed, returned our towels, but took our do not disturb sign away from us. I don't understand why they even supply their guests with one if they have no intention of regarding it. Between the noises at night and the cleaning staff in the morning I got next to no sleep during my five night stay here.
I have stayed in a lot of cheap, budget hotels, this is the only one I have hated.
