My sister and I stayed at this property for 3 nights. It had a great location close the the metro and on a very cute street. When we arrived to check in (which I had confirmed over email prior to be between 12:00 and 13:00) at 12:30, no one was present. We waited outside for twenty minutes and I attempted emailing the owner. By 13:10 I placed what I'm sure was a very expensive phone call to see what was going on. The owner gave me instructions on how to get into the building and set up a new time to collect our payment- which he never did appear for instead sending someone else to get our money. The friend who was very polite could not answer most of our questions about the hotel and the area surrounding. The room itself was nothing like I've seen on trip advisor (where I did all my pre booking research). We were on the ground floor and the room was small, cramped, with none of the cute decor you will see on the pictures. The bathroom shower curtain was mildewing caused the whole room to stink. Walking into the bathroom was horrible because of the smell. The shower continuously overflowed the basin when using it. You would have to turn off the water every minute to let the basin drain before continuing your shower so that the floors didn't get soaked. We kept our luggage later then check out on our last day which was appreciated, but overall this hotel was nothing like what I was expecting and I was quite disappointed by it. It was well priced, but I could've stayed somewhere just a cheap that was clean. Other downsides were no wifi, and no laundry facilities. We were told by the check in friend that Gare de Lyon had wifi- we went there and had zero luck getting any (even at the restaurants that advertised it that we were paying money to be in). Overall not what I had expected and I'm not overly picky- was disappointed by the lack of 'cuteness' I had anticipated but was truly grossed out by the bathroom smell.
