“Good location and ok for sleeping”
Reviewed 10 April 2012

A little bit of a red light district, but not too disturbing at all. Very quiet, small street. More or less walking distance to most important sites in all compass directions. Best available price for 3 adult (one teenager) persons in one room. We more or less only slept at the hotel so it was very much worth the price. WI-FI for free.
Family was running the hotel and they were all very service-minded even if the hotel itself couldn't offer much. Simple, but clean....except one bed cover, probably washed but it didn't help much.
If you want to spend money on good food instead and not spending much time at hotel, I can recommend this hotel.

Room Tip: If you want Tv (only Frence channels), ask if the antenna is connected. We didn't bother to comp...

We went on a long weekend break with my mum and my sister. The photos on the website look absolutely nothing like the actual hotel itself. The bedding sheets were spotless and clean, but the blankets were a bit smelly. Bathroom was absolutely tiny, if you are a bigger person you may not even fit in the shower, its that small. Even if you manage to fit in you cant turn around and the horrible shower curtain always get stuck to me. The rooms were not cleaned daily, all they did is picked the towels off the floor and hang them up, they didn't even change it.
The location is great, its between 2 metro stations and its really central and easy to get to everywhere. Cheap but fab reasturants were very local to the hotel. So if you did a bit of shopping and spending during the day you were guaranteed a very decent 3 course meal for about 18 euros pp including drink.
To be honest I wasn't too bothered about the hotel as it was cheap and I had a bathroom and a roof over my head for the night.
We were out all day and by the time we got back were too knackered to criticize the hotel haha.
I would probably go back for the value and the location.

I would recommend it to people looking for a cheap getaway. However if you are fussy and you look for 5* service in a 2* hotel then please find something else instead.

Enjoy Paris, its beautiful!

Room Tip: There are no lifts so if you have trouble walking request a lower level floor as the stairs to the 5...

Didn't feel very safe as the receptionist takes your key when you go out therefore felt our belongings in the room where a bit insecure. Small little hotel in not the best area. Room was fine, just quite small (as you'd expect in Paris) and appeared unclean. Very close to 2 metros. Staff weren't very helpful and didn't know much information about Paris or speak much English. Good value for money however, about what you'd expect for the price you pay.

Helpful staff, room was clean and spacious, bed comfort was OK, good value for money - you can walk to Seine (Hotel de Ville and Notre Dame) for 15 -20 minutes, close to two metro stations and buses / night buses ! which was convenient as I had an early flight back and didn't want to pay for a taxi :)
- something negative - some smell of desifectant in the bathroom and no lift

Victory Galou is not a luxurious stayover, but if you need a cheap room close to transportation and nightlife near the center of Paris, Victory Galou will do. Located near the Porte St-Denis, the area is filled with kebab shops, markets, cafes, and bars. The room was typical of many cheap places in Paris: single bed; tiny TV; desk; sink; commode; balcony. Shower and toilet were directly across the hall. The place could have been cleaner, and the bed wasn't the most comfortable, but it was 36 Euro/night. What do you want? I stayed two spartan nights at Victory Galou and, honestly, I wasn't sorry to go. But it served its purpose. Free wi-fi Internet worked most of the time on my laptop, and the staff were friendly if not overly helpful. No big complaints.
