“Typical 3 star paris hotel”
Reviewed 3 September 2013

This is a very typical Paris 3 Star Hotel - which in the US rating system I honestly believe would rank as 2 star. The room was VERY clean - which was the main point as I am a bit of a germaphobe. But they are are the size of a large walk-in closet. I stayed in a double room I booked for myself. I am not sure how 2 people could share this room, as there was only enough floor space for 1 person to be standing up at any one time. Further, contrary to the hotel description on several web sites, there is NO laundry machine available. The staff had no clue where in the neighborhood, in Paris, or in France for that matter I could find a laundromat. (I lived in Paris for many years. Believe me; laundromats are in every single neighborhood.) Through Google, I was able to locate one. The breakfast is also NOT included in the price. So be prepared to pay $15 for coffee and a roll! They also had some major construction going on, which for a Paris hotel could last the better part of a decade.

This is all very normal for Paris hotels - no laundry machines, staff have no clue how to find one, construction site conditions, absurd prices for breakfast. If a US-style Motel 6 chain opened in the city, they would put every single 3start establishment out of business!

A group of us were having a Paris break and we didn’t want to spend too much on accommodation as everything in Paris is so expensive. Now, having read all the reviews, we were not expecting much for the price we paid. It worked out 60 quid a night per person including breakfast which was reasonable. Asked for a twin room, the beds are right next to each other, see photo. The hotel is well located between two subway stations and easy to find. It is also in the middle of renovation and has had a complete makeover compared to what reviewers were saying last year. The rooms are clean and the bathroom a good size, and the AC was brilliant and silent. Yes, there were a few things 'missing', the lock on the door needed attention, one of the side lights didn’t work and there were no sink plugs, but all in all, a good room. The wallpaper was really weird, made of something squidgy? Sound proofing? It needed it, the walls are thin and with all the renovation works, you will hear it. Also, you can hear everything in the bathroom if you are in the room and vice versa! And don’t get a room by the lift, we were a corridor away and we could hear it!
Breakfast was actually quite good. Yes, slow to top up on plates of croissants, ham and cheese. But there were cereal, toast, yogurt, bread, orange juice, coffee and tea. The hot food was scrambled eggs and hot dog sausage.
Overall, I reckon with the completed renovations and final touches to the rooms, and an improved breakfast service, this will be one popular hotel.

The hotel is a few minute walk from St. Lazare metro. Kind of hard to find bc there's not a big sign and it's about 2-3 blocks from metro. So just keep walking and you'll come across a blue banner on the side of the bldg. everything was very clean. They were renovating so loud hammering woke us up at 7 am every morning. Walls are paper thin you can hear everyone walking in the hall. VERY hard beds..but Overall slept fine. Staff were very helpful.
At night there were a lot of homeless in the nearby park. Felt a little weird walking back in the dark but never felt like I was in danger.
For the price you can't beat it.
Would stay here again!

The Positives:
The location of the hotel is central and access to metro through St. Lazare station which gives you access to 4 different lines of metro and RER train. The metro is a 5 minute walk from the hotel.
The room was newly refurbished with efficient space. The staff are friendly. Value for money.
The Negatives:
The bathroom lacked enough towels and the shower towels were ridiculously small. Not enough bathroom supplies such as shampoo. While sitting on toilet seat you will bump into the iron tissue holder which was very inconvenient. Some carpentry issues needed fixing in the room. The breakfast was sufficient but limited quantities. So if you go at 9:30 you will find leftovers and no refills. However sometimes the staff were kind enough to gives us refills when they were available.

Having stayed in Swiss before moving here, we didnt have great expectations from the room, especially because it was the cheapest of the three, but we were plesantly surprised to see the size of the room - it was spacious for European hotel standards. Though the hotel has an 'old and not well maintained' kind of look, it was a fine stay, the breakfast was good, good to take walks around - though it was kind of 'in the middle of nowhere'. Not anywhere near the 'sightseeing locations' - but closer to a train station

Stayed here with some trepidation after reading some of the reviews. Booked for £70 a night through Hotwire "secret deal".

Room was basic, but not too small. Flat screen TV, mini-bar etc. Stayed in room on 5th floor overlooking internal courtyard. Very quiet at night.

Metro station 2 mins walk up the road....very convienient for all landmarks.

Our room looked recently renovated and saw no eveidence of stained carpets etc mentioned in other reviews. Staircases could do with a lick of paint, but for the sake of the 5 seconds I spent on them over the weekend could overlook this!

Hotel lobby very clean and welcoming...staff very friendly and extremely helpful. Immediate area not the best, but only 5 mins walk to Clichy/ Montmatre.

Sometimes wonder what people in here expect on here! For less than £70 a night in Central Paris, felt we got an absolute bargain. Room spotlessly clean, bed comfortable, shower warm and powerful. Good location. Would recommend.
