The room was booked for me from my employer, so had no opportunity to leave and go someplace else. Nearest metro station (as advertised on hotel's website) is for navigo pass/ticket holders only, had to climb 4 flights of stairs with suitcases and walk to another station to get a ticket.
Staff unfriendly, room tiny, bathroom almost non-existent (bath tub was so small in width there was no room to stand on and only slightly longer than the toilet -see photos). Room was cleaned daily (but not clean), just the basic stuff - reckon it hadn't seen a Hoover in ages. There was someone else's hair under the pillow, only discovered it the day after. There was dirt in the bathroom tiles, filthy curtains (which I wouldn't probably notice, if my face wasn't 20cm from the window, rooms are really small).
Stayed there for 3 nights, every single day I was woken up at 6:45AM by the noise of cutlery/glasses being carried and set up for breakfast. As for the actual breakfast, very poor. I even found an ant on my breakfast plate, when I showed the lady in charge she laughed it off... Reception repeatedly tried to sell me (overpriced) ride to the airport.
And yes, 167 Euros/night for THIS room? No, thanks.
